Default TLC754 ~ EOINA: Camouflage or Eclipse ~ {08/05/2019}

Happy August to you all. August !!
As it's the first Monday of the month, it's time for Everything Old Is New Again.

Ann's challenge (from when she was our 5th Monday hostess) for Camouflaging Die-Cuts was just over 200 challenges ago, TLC540 back in June 2015. I know I've certainly got more word dies since then, I'm sure many of you have too.

I'll copy her instructions here:

Directions using white cardstock:
1. Masking part of your card, sponge on a color or colors, leaving the top white.
2. Place a die where it will cover part of the white and the color(s) and cut. (I used a word) Save this piece.
3. Die cut at least four more of the same die in scraps of white.
4. Glue the cardstock with the cut out to your card.
5. Now glue in the white die cuts, one at a time to make a series of layers in the cut out space, then top it with the original color/white die cut.
5. Embellish in whatever way you want.

And since the Two Tier Eclipse is really another side of the same coin, I'm also offering you that option. I'm imagining that the "eclipse" comes in because the tutorial shows black card rather than white used for the layering, so it's a tiny bit like the effect of a solar eclipse.

The video and tutorial for Two Tier Eclipse are HERE - and since it featured in the Holiday Blitz, there's an extra step when you're uploading to the Technique Spotlight gallery.
Choose Technique Spotlight from the first drop-down menu, then Holiday Blitz from the second one.
A third menu opens up underneath the first one, on the left. Now you can choose Two Tier Eclipse.


I've made two samples - one using Anne's original challenge - and Karen's masked stencilling from last week, as that was an excellent technique for step 1 in Anne's directions. While we were dog-sitting for the last couple of weekends in July, I coloured some Nativity images, and back home again I used the Two Tier Eclipse to knock out a month's quota of Christmas cards.


I hope you'll be inspired to get creative with your dies today.

This year, to celebrate 15 years of the Dirty Dozen, Splitcoast's own Design Team, the Dare to Get Dirty challenges are open to everyone, not just Fan Club members. (Although, except for the social media prize, you do have to be a Fan Club member to be in the prize drawing).

If you'd like to check the challenges out - and it's perfectly OK to combine any of them with the regular daily challenges, check out the challenge forum HERE.
The Master Challenge thread, to see all the challenges easily (it's added to each day throughout the week) is here: DTGD 2019 Master Challenge Thread

Here's a link to our TLC754 EOINA Camouflage or Eclipse gallery


Here are my cards:

TLC574 Stencilled Florals

TLC574 Noel

Remember to use the keyword TLC574 and TLC540 when you are uploading. It's helpful (to the hostesses for sure!) if you come back and leave a link on this thread - especially if there are any glitches in the gallery.

If you're not sure how to link your card on the thread here, here's how:

1. Open 2 windows or tabs: one window for your card and one for this thread.
2. In this thread, click on reply and type anything you want to show before the link.
3. Go to your card window. Highlight the address for your card. (It says www. splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showphoto..... and so on)
4. Click EDIT. Click COPY
5. Go back to this thread. Click PASTE.
