First, I would like to welcome you to the home of my new blog! Back in the spring, I decided it was time to register my blog domain and thought it was time to switch to a new simple and clean blog layout. A great big thank you to Brian and Nicole at Integrant Services for a smooth transition. We will be adding a few new feature in the next few days and I can’t wait to share them with you!!! 

If you search Pinterest, them I’m sure you have see the latest technique crazy called “The Eclipse”  When I first saw this technique I was WOWED and thought that is too hard and complicated.  But actually it’s the opposite, it’s very simple and easy to do!!!

Eclipse technique using the Painted Harvest stamp set and the Happy Birthday framelit.  #stampinup, #technique #stampwithanne

When doing this technique, the first thing that you need to do is stamped the background on a piece of card stock. I used the Painted Harvest stamp set and stamped my flowers in Sweet Sugarplum, and Berry Burst. The Centre of my flowers is stamped in Early Espresso and the leaves are done in Old Olive. The little set of dots are done in Sahara Sand. 

After you have all your stamping done, you are going to run your card stock thru the big shot machine, I used the big shot platform and the precision plate along with the Happy Birthday Thinlits Die . I used the Big Shot brush to help release all those little pieces from the die. But wait..you need to keep those little pieces as you need them for this technique. 

Using the Foam Adhesives Sheets, add your dimensional strips to your Happy Birthday word and add to the negative image on your card stock. Now he is where the magic comes, you need to piece all those missing pieces back into your card in their negative spot. It’s a little bit of work, like working on a puzzle, but the end result is gorgeous!! 

You can make this project too!! You’ll find all of these Stampin’ Up! supplies in my ONLINE  STAMPIN’ UP! STORE by clicking on all of the photo’s below:
