Kitty Bee Designs – Ho Ho Ho !

It´s never to early to start with Christmas Cards, right ? I won a Digi Stamp from my dear crafty friend Milka and i opted for this sweet Santa Penguin from Kitty Bee Designs. I like here how the image stands out and there is no need for design paper or similar.

My favorite embellishments are buttons. I LOVE buttons but I use more and more sequins. Because they are flat and that saves postage. How about you ?

  • Image: Kitty Bee Design “Santa Penguin”
  • Ink:       Copics, Memento Black
  • Other:   Taylored Expression EB Folder, Sequins

Papertrey Ink – Choose Joy

This is my take for the “Crafters of Faith Group” at Splitcoaststampers. Jeanette is hostess in April and she wants to see a project that reflects JOY. Now my card is very colorful, a wild confusion of flowers and garlands – that brings JOY to me and i hope the recipient of the card as well. Das ist mein Beitrag für “Crafters of Faith Group” auf Splitcoaststampers. Jeanette ist Gastgeberin im April und sie wollte etwas sehen das Freude wiederspiegelt. Nun, meine Karte ist sehr bunt, ein wildes Durcheinander an Blumen und Girlanden – das macht mir Freude und ich hoffe dem Empfänger dieser Karte auch.


  • Supplies
  • Stamps: PTI Twig Wreath, PTI Choose Joy
