Merry & Bright




Dawn McVey's tag on release day 2 with the color 
combo of rich red and pink inspired me this month.

I pretty much cased her design with my current supplies.

JOY

 Merry Monday Christmas Challenge: #255



It's always a "joy" to add to the Christmas cards finished pile!

The alphabet "joy" letters are from Altenew, the rest of the dies are Papertrey Ink.
No stamping on these cards.

#1

#2

#3

#4


These cards were inspired by the challenge at Merry Monday
I'm also linking to Happy Little Stampers - Glitter 
Cards 2 & 4 have a bit of glitter in the joy letters and Card 2 has a glitter tape line across the middle.

Repetitive Small Images - stamped and/or die cut





Several crafting gurus that I follow enjoy stamping backgrounds with the small images that are included in many clear stamp sets. This week Lexi shared her CAS method of using these smaller stamps in a repetitive format to create a quick, graphic card on the Capture the Moment blog.

This was so much fun! 
Because I wanted to use several neglected stamp sets, I made three 
different cards. If I had been thinking like some crafters on PTI's Make
It Monday challenge, I would have made card sets for future gifts. 
Next week...


Card #1 -  4 bar size (3.5 x 5)
PTI stamps: Sketched Shapes, Stylish Sentiments: Birthday
PTI Tipped Tops dies and Linen Impression plate



Card #2 
PTI stamps: Autumn Pumpkins, Mighty Oak
