Merry & Bright JOY!

Happy Tuesday!  I have a Christmas card to share with you today.  After completing this card, it occurred to me that it does not use any stampsNot sure how I managed that one.   

Today's card uses some new stuff.  Everyone once in awhile I get into a stamping funk so to speak.  I feel like I need something to sort of jump start my creativity. To boost my Mojo!   I found that buying something new and stamping just for me is just what the doctor ordered.   For this card, I am using some new dies I ordered from WPlus 9 Design Studio.  I was so impressed with these that I ordered a few stamps as well.  Cannot wait to get those and play.   
For this Christmas card,  I am using one of the WPlus 9 Design Studio Seasonal Sentiment dies with a snowflake die.  I have this thing lately with die cut words.  I think they look awesome!  I combined Joy die with snowflake and layered star dies.  I added some tinsel glitter to one.  I used some patterned paper, stitched the frame, and finished with a twine bow with a little snowflake and heart die that comes with the Seasonal Sentiments word dies.  Too fun and super quick!  Thought I would share!  

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
