My cards today feature the Brand Spankin' New Merry Die-namics (and lots of other new goodies). I am in love with that fabulous die and had a lot of fun playing with it. 

For my first card, I got in a peppy mind frame and went "rainbow". Who says Christmas can't be multicolored? The MERRY die was cut diagonally on a Smooth White card base. The word BRIGHT, from Merry Messages, was stamped using a different color for each letter (thank you, Stampamajig). Above the merry, I stamped the dashed line from Perk Up stamp set a couple times, then completed the line with another of the dashed line stamps from the same set, but had to mask off to be able to do it. It was a *little* bit of a pain in the bootie, BUT it was super fun and I LOVE the end result (is it ok to say that?) The "Christmas light" is a single dot cut from one of the background strips from my Darling Dots stamp set (I'm a stamp butcher). They were stamped every 2 dashes (approximately). I tucked a piece of Black Licorice Card Stock behind the front of the card base to make the MERRY stand out.



The string of lights makes me squeal. LOVE it. YAY - crafty success.


Up next is this quick and easy card using the same die. This time, instead of backing the front with colored card stock, I adhered it to the front of the back panel of the card base. This gives the word a bit of dimension. "Christmas" is from Merry Messages and was stamped in Jellybean Green Ink. I splattered the card base with a mix of water and Jellybean Green Ink Refill. I added a fishtail tag and some silver sequins to finish it off.






This woodsy card was inspired by a card I found in the recent Papercrafts magazine by Terri Davenport. I paired texture with bright colors for an unexpected collision of styles.





Be sure to head back over to the MFT Blog to see what the rest of the team has come up with using the Brand Spankin' New products! There is plenty of eye candy!
