Totally Techniques Stampin' Up! Demos Blog Hop

The Eclipse Technique

Stampin' Up! set We Must Celebrate is sooo cute.  I couldn't resist using it for our Totally Techniques blog hop this month which is the eclipse technique which is very trendy at the moment and also a lot of fun to create cards or home decor pieces with it.  You've just arrived from my team mate Annette's blog and her fab take on this fun technique so welcome to the UK. 
All the stamps on my card are part of Stampin' Up!'s We Must Celebrate set including the sentiment.  I used colours pear pizzazz, wild wasabi, and early espresso, black memento  ink pads and coloured the cute creatures with my Stampin Blends using old olive, pumpkin pie, ivory, bronze, smoky slate and crumb cake.  
I die added some tear and tape to the back of my whisper white card which helped, even though it got cut, to keep the letters in place after I'd die cut them using the Stampin Up Large Letter dies.  It was then also useful for adhering the drop parts of the letters to the base card of early espresso.  I decided that is was easier to get faces where I wanted them after cutting rather than before, but you can work it which way suits your design best.  Once stamped and coloured the white outline was stuck to the base card and then each letter was carefully raised with mini stampin dimensionals.    I stamped the sentiment, separated the two words and then free hand cut them out and added them to early espresso card to free hand cut again.  They too are adhered with stampin dimensionals.  Here's a Stampin' Up! video to show you how to do the basic technique.  

You can also see another example of this technique using designer series paper with no stamping by visiting this  stamping scene post of mine.

Thanks for stopping here to look.

Oh Zoe, I am so glad someone used the 'We Must Celebrate' stamp set because I absolutely love critters. I have this stamp set but I think the Party Pandas have been more popular. I don't know why because I love them equally as they are both critters. Thank you for your example of the Eclipse card is so cute and thank you for being part of the International Blog Hop. :o)
