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.

 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.





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
