Night 9: 13 Nights of Halloween -Stampin' Up! Style

Hey everyone.  I hope your weekend is going well.  Tonight we are going to learn how to create a spooky card with the large letter framelits and a technique called the eclipse.

Easy follow along pictures and instructions will help you be able to recreate this fun card and use this technique for future projects. Let's begin.
First you will need a few supplies: A big shot die cutting machine, the Stampin' Up! Large Letter framelits, and four different ink pads. I used Basic Black, Rich Razzleberry, Smokey Slate, and Pumpkin Pie.
Additionally, you will need the Spooky Cat stamp set.  This photopolymer stamp set will make it very easy for your to see where you are stamping.
Next you will need a piece of black cardstock at a size of 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" and 2 white pieces of cardstock in size 4" x 5 1/4"  Fold your black piece of cardstock in half and create your card base.  Next adhere one white piece of cardstock inside.  This will create your full card base.
Next you will take your second piece of white cardstock and begin to create a design on your paper.  I liked keeping images towards the center because that is where I am going to put the word BOO!
Now you may take your stamped piece of cardstock and add it to a standard plate and magnetic plate for the big shot. (I highly encourage the use of the magnetic plate as it will keep your framelits lined up, and adhere to the magnet below the standard plate).
After you have cut out the word BOO!, you will take and pop out the letters.
You will keep ALL of the pieces, even the little ones that come out of the letters. You will need these.
Next you are going to adhere down the piece of white cardstock with the word BOO! cut out onto your card base.  Make sure you use a lot of adhesive and really make it sticky everywhere so it secures in all places. I used fast fuse and had no issues with any lift ups.
Push down firmly and make sure nothing lifts.
Next you are going to use mini dimensionals to add to the back of all letters.  This will make the letters pop and as you will see, give a slight eclipse look on the card.

Next you will take the pieces that go on the inside of the letters and adhere them flat against the card.  Do not raise these pieces, but put them back onto the card.
After you have put all the letters back on, I took a fun design piece from the stamp set and stamped in Sahara Sand in different ways all over the card giving it a little more of a pop.
Give yourselves a hand! You have just mastered the eclipse technique and it may be used with many other projects and stamp sets.
I have included a list of the items used in this project.  As always, if you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask.  Have a great evening and thanks for stopping by.
