Make It Monday #134

Hi-ya friends! Happy Monday- I hope you all had a fabulous weekend.  I'm back today for the new Make It Monday over at Nichole Heady's blog.

This week, the technique is called Repeat & Lift.  It's great for making detailed die cuts stand out more on your cards.

For my card, I used the Grand Ampersand stamps and dies.

I chose the largest ampersand from the set for my main image.  I stamped half of the ampersand in Aqua Mist and the other half in Simply Chartreuse.  I then did the repeat stamping to create the blurred image of the ampersand.  I placed the matching die cut on top.  I finished off the main panel of my card with the Mr. and Mrs sentiments from the set as well as to have and to hold forever.

For the background panel, I just used the Background Basics Chevron stripes and stamped it in a repeating pattern in True Black ink.

I really like how these colors work together and enjoyed learning a new way to work with the die cuts and matching stamps!

That's it for me today! Late posting and it's time to get my kiddos ready for bed!

Have a wonderful evening!
