In Honour of the Solar Eclipse...

Please scroll down for my SugarPea Sweet Peeks Week Day 1 post.

I had some fun yesterday making a solar eclipse card. Of course there are no sentiments made for this precise occasion since it happens so rarely so I made one from parts of several different stamps from various sets. It seemed appropriate to comment on the 'specialness' of the day.

I started by sponging a 'sun' of Tiara ink, and then stamped a 'moon' from Spot On (from the Foundations Box) in Midnight directly over it. To complete my focal panel, I created the rest of the sentiment using stamps from I Pick You and Good Things (Counting Blessings Stamp of Approval collection). I cut it using a Dotted Circle die and offset a shadow behind it.  I blended a 'sky' panel using It's a Boy, and spritzed it with water for interest and colour variation.

I used:


  1. Isn't that such a brilliant card to make,in honour of the eclipse! Great sponging and your background is perfect for the scene!

  2. Hi Ardyth ~ Fun and creative card to honor the solar eclipse today!

  3. Excellent use of the inspiration of the eclipse.
