Technique Tuesday: ECLIPSE

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Did you get a chance to view my post yesterday? If not, check it out … if you did, think about it!! Later in the week I’ll share a story with you, but for today we’re going to examine the “Eclipse Technique”.

The Eclipse technique can be very simple, from using a punch to exploring your creativity with the use of the BigShot! We all love our BigShots ❤  I will be sharing a simple punched version  … plus a video created by Stampin’ Up! that also features this technique.

The easiest way to create the Eclipse card is to use Designer Series paper (and wow …it’s on sale!!) But not to worry because I’ll be showing some fun additions to really create a big fun wow!!  I’m using the “Tropical Escape” Designer paper and the “Cat” punch … my granddaughter loves kitties so this cute card is for her.

I left an edge showing around my “eclipse” just as Brandy did in the video … I like the look of layering and I used the Blushing Bride which coordinates with the designer paper. I then embossed the “Smoky Slate” background with the new “Scattered Sequins” embossing folder and touched it up with the “Wink of Stella” to give it a bit of glitz!

Speaking of glitz … I added one of the Petal Pink Rhinestone Gems! I was worried that the two pinks would clash but they actually looked fine. I chose the shape that looks like the sequins!

To finish off the card, I used the “Celebrate You” thinlits and popped them up as well. It just really completes the card and balances out the texture on the card.

Thank you for checking out my blog today!

I wish you a very happy day ~
