My love for sundays

Yeah, I LOVE sundays and crafting. And I had a VERY crafty saturday also.
So Check out three results:

Ja, ich LIEBE Sonntage und basteln. Und ich hatte auch einen SEHR bastel-lastigen Samstag.
Also guckt Euch 3 der Ergebnisse an:

1) Happy birthday to you
For this card I used Avery Elle's rounded diamonds to stamp a background, added the tiny envelope from Air mail and finished the card with a sentiment from Handwritten Notes.

Für diese Karte habe ich Avery Elles rounded diamonds benutzt um einen Hintergrund zu stempeln, habe den kleinen Briefumschlag von Air Mail aufgeklebt und einen Text von handwritten notes hinzugefügt.

Seize the Bithday - Hearts
AE i {heart} u - Birthday

2) Congratulations on your cutie pie 
This card turned out completely different from what I had planned. I ended up using the scraps from the card as it was planned - because I liked that better.
I used Clearly Besotted's elephant from cute & cuddly along with a partial sentiment from Fome Sweet Home.

Diese Karte ist ganz anders geworden als geplant. Ich bin dazu über gegangen die Reste von der Karte zu nutzen, die eigentlich geplant war - irgendwie gefiel mir das besser :)
Ich habe den Elefanten aus Clearly Besotteds Set Cute & Cuddly benutzt mit einem partiellen Text von Home Sweet Home.


3) Have a magical day
I found a tutorial on the internet on making your own enamel dots and tried it out. The results are AWESOME! So I had to use some.
You can find the tutorial here: Papercrafts Connection

Here are my dots:

and a card:


  1. Great cards as always! I love my crafty Sundays too, Jo x

  2. A trio of wonderful cards, Christine! All are so cheerful and spirit-lifting! Thanks for reminding us about the enamel dot tutorial; your set of home-made dots looks fabulous!

  3. Oh, der kleine Umschlag. Jedes Mal, wenn du den benutzt denke ich das. Schrecklich :)
    Die Froschkarte ist wirklich schön. Aber stinkt es nicht, wenn man die Bügelperlen so lange in den Ofen packt? Ich muss wohl abwarten, bis ich hier mal wieder sturmfrei hab, um das auch auszuprobieren. - Liebe Grüße

    1. Hi Jess :) Doch, es stinkt ENTSETZLICH! Also: Küchentür zu, Fenster auf und möglichst wenig drin aufhalten! Bügelperlen sind bei mir übrigens nicht geworden, ich habe dann bei Dawanda Pony Beads gekauft.
