Make it Monday, #134 - Repeat + Lift

Nichole Heady, at Papertrey Ink, showed us how to create a background stamp for our coordinating dies by stamping, lifting and repeating the stamp. This gives an interesting shadow effect to the die cut. Since I'm beginning my Christmas card production, I chose the Joy mini stamp to create my card, as well as a sentiment from Peaceful Pinecones, but CASE'd Nicole's layout. I used Spring Moss ink for the top half of the stamp, and Simply Chartreuse Ink for the bottom half, to add some interest. I added the small Holly Jolly leaves to embellish the "o", and then some red rhinestones from my stash for the holly berries.

Thanks for looking!


  1. Oh my goodness! The holly on the O is just adorable! Love this.

  2. Kathryn, I agree! Two great minds think alike! I like the added holly on your card...you left a little unique piece of yourself in the challenge! Thank you for visiting my card! I like yours too!

  3. This is a great take on the challenge. Such an awesome Christmas card, and so very easy to mail, too.

  4. Love the holly on the "o" and the way your terrific sentiment flows across the card - terrific!
