Large Letters Framelits

She thought she could... so she did- Another Eclipse Technique card

Well, its not a Christmas card that I'm posting on the day before Christmas, but a congratulatory card that I made for a sweet friend.

I've been so busy preparing for Christmas Eve and Christmas day, that I haven't had a chance to post on my blog!

I made this card a couple of weeks ago and wanted to wait to share it, until my friend received it. So, today, is the day.

Its a card that I made with the "This Little Piggy" stamp set. I again used the Eclipse Technique for this special card.

I had this idea in my head and couldn't wait to get it on paper. My friend accomplished something great, so I wanted to celebrate her achievement.

"Yay" was what came to mind... so thats what I spelled out with the Large Letters Framelit dies.


I stamped the images in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them in with our New Stampin' Blends alcohol markers.

I love how it turned out.

To learn how I did the Eclipse Technique, click here to see an earlier post, explaining the technique.


I used the pink pirouette light and dark markers as well as the pool party and the light rich razzleberry marker to color in the images. I also added some dazzling diamonds glitter with a thin swipe of the fine tip glue pen and patted it with my finger.

Of course, I can't forget the inside!


The cardstock colors are whisper white, pink pirouette and sweet sugar plum. I think my friend liked the card- she said it brightened her day!


Although this isn't a Christmas card, I would like to wish you all a blessed Christmas and hope you are celebrating with lots of family and friends.

Until the next time...

Another Eclipse Technique Valentine Card

I'm in the midst of baking, wrapping, stamping, crafting and cleaning for Christmas, so why not throw in a Valentine card while I'm at it!

I am totally in LOVE with the Eclipse Technique and I have been making a few cards for Valentines day and for a couple of my friends using this unique technique.

You will definitely want to try this and you will definitely need the Large Letters Framlit dies to pull it off.

I also used the Bloomin' Love stamp set for this lovely card.


The whisper white cardstock was stamped with the heart in real red and the flowers in rose red ink. Then I placed the Large Letters Framlit dies over top of the images and cut the word LOVE out with the Big Shot.

I then attached the whisper white cardstock onto the card, and attached the letters in the cut out holes with mini dimensionals.

It helps to attach basic black cardstock behind the letters. It gives in more contrast and depth.


I added a few rhinestones for sparkle. This could also be used for a wedding, anniversary, engagement or bridal shower as well.

I've got another really cute eclipse card to share, but I want to make sure that my friend received it before I post.

Stop back again soon- I have more crafty crafts that I will be posting this week.

Until the next time...

Eclipse Technique Valentine Card

It may be a little early for Valentines Day cards, but I couldn't resist playing around with this popular new technique that I have been waiting to try. The eclipse technique is so very cool and super easy.

If you are attending card class this week, we will be making an eclipse card, so you're in luck!

For this card, I used the "This Little Piggy" stamp set and the new Stampin' Blends Markers. Of course it wouldn't be an eclipse technique without the main product... the Large Letters Framelit Dies.

The card base is real red 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" card, Quilted Christmas designer paper is cut 5 1/4" x 4 and the whisper white is 5" x 3 3/4".

How stinkin' cute is this little piggy!?


All I did was stamp the image with the tuxedo black Memento ink pad, onto whisper white cardstock, and colored it in with the Stampin Blends alcohol markers, in pink pirouette, old olive and daffodil delight. I then cut the X and O out with the Big Shot and Large Letters Framelits dies.


Next, I mounted my whisper white cardstock onto my card- and attached the die cut X and O (in the cut out spaces) with mini dimensionals.

Don't forget the inside:


Thats it! Super simple.

I hope my card class attendees will love the card I have for them this week- its also Valentine related.

Thanks for stopping by today...

Until the next time....
