Hello again! Welcome back to another class catchup. This week we played with the Eclipse technique. Have you tried this before? It consists of diecutting the front of your card, and setting the base back further than your diecut pieces. It’s become a fave technique of mine lately, so I was itching to show my class attendees this simple technique with *wow* factor.
For the first card, we used Lovely Lipstick as a card base. Lovely Lipstick is a lovely new In Color – I love it already! Using Lovely Lipstick, Grapefruit Grove (another new In Color), Pineapple Punch (yep, another new In Color!), and Lemon Lime Twist; we stamped flowers and leaves on the card front of Whisper White, using Swirly Scribbles.
Once stamped, we cut the word ‘YOU’ from Celebrate You Thinlits and popped the You on dimensionals, while gluing the card front to the card base.
For the second card,w e used a card base of Crumb Cake. On Whisper White, we stamped flowers and leaves with Blushign Bride, Berry Burst, and Mint Macaron ink.
Once stamped, we die-cut a heart from the card front. The front was glued down, and the heart was popped up on dimensionals.
For the last card, we used a card base of Basic Black; and cut numbers from a piece of Designer Series Paper. The paper was glued down and the numbers were popped up on dimensionals.
Ink was flicked across the paper with a Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker. A sentiment label was stamped and heat embossed with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder.
Thank you for popping in to check out our creations – I hope you’ll give this technique a go too! ‘Til next time x
