The house was cut at 5.5 inches with all its layers. The top layer is embossed with the distress stripes embossing folder.  I popped this layer up. The tree was cut at 5 inches. The crows in the tree were cut at 1/2 inch. The fences were cut at 2 1/2 inches. The cat was cut at 1 3/4 inches.  The pumpkins were cut at 1 inch. The ghost was cut at 1 1/4 inches. The sign was cut at 1 inches.  The bats were part of the house so they were the same size as the house. I did cut a smaller house but was to small for the scene so I just used the bats from this house also. I cut a hand and dirt mound to have the hand holding the sign.  The letters were cut at 3/4 of an inch. Lots of inking and distressing.

(Sizzix Eclips) Haunted House

  • Sizzix Eclips Machine
  • Holiday cartridge
  • Pattern Paper: (House) Brenda Walton and ( Card Front) Recollection Halloween Paper
  • Cardstock: Yellow, Black, Purple and Brown
  • Cuttle Bug Embossing folder: Distressed Stripes
  • Card Size: 5.5 by 4.25
The house was cut at 4 inches. I used the blackout function for the yellow cardstock to look like lights. The pattern paper house was the regular cut at 4 inches. All the windows, door, steps and roof were cut using the pieces function button also at 4 inches.
The tree was cut at 4.5 inches at regular cut.
I cut a circle out for the moon in yellow card stock.
The bats were cut at 1/2 inch.
I ran the roof, steps and door through my big shot using the distressed stripes cuttlebug folder. I used pop-dots behind the roof and steps to give dimension.
I glued down the moon first, next the tree and then the house. I attached the bats to different parts of the card. Some in front of the moon and some on the house.
One of the best features about Sizzix Eclips is the laser preview. I had a small piece of black paper and I wanted to make sure the bats would fit so I put the size in and hit laser preview and they all fit.  I use that function alot and I don't waste paper anymore.

(Sizzix Eclips)Trick or Treat Card

  • Sizzix Eclips Machine
  • Halloween and Scaredy Cat Alphabet Cartridge
  • K and Co. Halloween paper Stack
  • Sew Easy Tool
  • Kraft Card Stock
  • Glossy Accents
  • White Gel Pen
  • Walnut Stain Distress Ink
  • Peeled Paint Distress Ink
Everything was cut from the Sizzix eclips machine using their Halloween cartridge. Halloween and Scaredy Cat Alphabet Cartridge.  The spiders are 0.5 inches and the candy corn is 0.75 inches. The words were cut at 1.5 inches. This machine can cut this small and I don't have any problems with the paper ripping or the cuts not complete. Everything came off the mat clean. I added glossy accents to the spiders and the candy corn. I ran the sew easy straight stitch up the side of the card and used the midnight floss. /used the white gel pen for the eyes of the spiders. I ripped the edges of the 2 papers that the phrase is sitting on and went around the edges with the peeled paint and walnut stain distressed ink. The patteren paper is from last Halloween.
