I have to say that I didn’t know this technique had a name but people are referring to it as “Eclipse.” I used Season Like Christmas and the Large Letter Framelits to make this card. I stamped the card front using Garden Green and Pear Pizzaz to make a scene of snowy trees. The snow is doe with embossing powder. You can see the cards I did with single trees here.
After you stamp the front, die cut the letters from the stamped piece. I used a piece of Post It tape to hold it all together. Then die cut the letters from white card stock 4 more times. Glue the letters on top of each other and use the stamped letters on the top. Puzzle them back into the negative space on the stamped image. I added the sentiment from the Season Like Christmas set, masking it to make one long sentiment.
It’s a really pretty look – better seen in person 🙂 Hugs, Fran
Season Like Christmas is a new set from the upcoming Holiday Mini and I thought I’d try out some different way to do the tree. The stamp is considered a 2-step stamp (or maybe 3 or 4!) Here’s all my takes done on 3 1/2 x 5 Crumb Cake cards. All the backgrounds are stamped with Tree Rings background stamp in Crumb Cake, the trunks are stamped in Chocolate Chip and the center panel is die cut with a stitched rectangle die.
The first card is tree without snow. I used Pear Pizzaz and Old Olive to stamp the tree. The sentiment is from Colorful Seasons and is stamped in Chocolate Chip.
The second tree is stamped in both greens and the snow-looking stamp is done in Versamark with white embossing powder. The stamp at the bottom of the tree is done the same way. The sentiment is stamped and embossed on Chocolate Chip card stock.
The last tree uses the 2 tree images – the first stamped in Pear Pizzaz and the second is stamped in Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder. So there you go! I’m sure there are lots of other ways to stamp this pretty tree, but here are a few to try! Hugs, Fran
