This is the second project we made at our monthly stamp club meeting. It is called an Eclipse Card and is extremely popular right now. I had a couple of members request to make this because they have seen them everywhere. They are super easy to make. You either use Designer Series Paper for the background or stamp a background. Then you cut out a word and pop up the letters using Mini Dimensionals.
For the background we used the Designer Series Paper from the 2017 Holiday Catalog called Year Of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper. It is hard to see in the photo but it beautiful paper that has gold, silver and copper accents. We cut out the word “NOEL” using the Large Letters Framelits. I made it a little easier for my Club members by lining up the letters ahead of time and them attached them using retired Washi Tape.
Then we cut out the snowflakes from Silver Foil Paper using the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Des.
If you are on the internet at all you will know that Eclipse Cards are the biggest thing going on right now. I have no idea who “invented” it but it is all the rage. I like the way they look so I decided to try one out myself.
Eclipse cards are super easy to make. Basically you just stamp a background or use Designer Series Paper. Then you cut out the letters using the Large Letters Framelits Dies and then put them back in using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to make them pop up. Easy!
I do have to say that I know the Large Letters Framelits are a higher price than most Framelits but they are so worth it. You can use them forever to make any word you want for cards, banners, posters, etc. They are well worth the price!
I decided to use Colorful Seasons for my Eclipse Card and then cut out the word “Fall”. My card is a little busier than most so the letters don’t stick out as much. If I did it again, I would use less stamping. The sentiment is from Banners For You.
Mixed Borders is a stamp set that will be retiring at the end of May. It is such a cute set and I am sorry to see it go. It is a two step stamp set where you use two stamps to make one image. In this case, the border is the two set stamp. The flowers are in Watermelon Wonder (a retiring In Color *sad*) and the leaves are in Emerald Envy. They are really easy to line because the stamps are Photopolymer so you can see through them.
The “Hello” was cut out using the Large Letters Framelits. This set of Framelits is something everyone should own. You can use it to make cards, banners and scrapbook pages. Honestly, although they are a little pricey, they are worth it. You will have them forever and never need another set of letters. You could have a qualifying workshop and get them for half price. You could always join Stampin’ Up! with me and get these letters as part of your Starter Package or you can use your Demonstrator discount to purchase them.
Mixed Borders will be available until May 22nd. After that once it is gone, it is gone for good.
