Cat Punch and the Eclipse Technique

Have you heard of the eclipse technique?  I hadn’t until I started seeing it on pinterest and I had to find out how to do it.  It’s really simple and makes a great effect on your cards and scrapbooks.  I used the cat punch for mine and I love how it turned out!

On the first two cards, I used Wood Words from the Annual catalog.  I stamped first and then used the cat punch to punch out.  Before putting the cat back in place, and to add an extra layer, I punched the cat out of a solid color of card stock and adhered that to the back of my stamped cat.  Then I used dimensionals to adhere it back on to the front of the card (so it stands up a bit).

On the last card, instead of stamping, I used a piece of Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper on a Cajun Craze Card Base.  This cat is a little more hidden but I love it!  The sentiment came with the September Paper Pumpkin Kit!

Here are the supplies I used for all three cards:
