Eclipse Cards Tutorial Using Block Alphabet Thin Cuts

 This month I have had such fun using our Block Alphabet Thin Cuts Z3386
to make cards.  Letters are 1 1/2 ".  Here I give the method and some tips for you to do the same.
Remember the Thin Cuts are on sale for 25% off during March!
Go to the shopping cart here and click on the "Shop Now" under the
Die-Namite on the cover page to see the full selection available!
Cut the pieces needed for your card.  They will go on a standard card base which measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.
To stamp a border to color as in the Birthday card, cut a piece of thin
paper so it is 1 1/2 inches wide.  Using washi tape, fasten it straight onto a
bigger piece of paper.  Slip the cut piece under the mask piece and fasten at
the corners with washi tape.

Now stamp using a border stamp of your choosing.
 Color in the stamped image.  Then attach the Thin Cuts
to the base and keep in place using washi tape.
Because there are two "P"s in HAPPY, select another
letter the same width and use it as a place holder.
To finish your card,  mount each letter slightly off center
of the negative space using foam tape. 
For the Bravo cards, secure the Thin Cuts to the top
paper piece with washi tape.  Then stack the two pieces
together and cut.
Just switch the letters on the print in the negative spaces
and you have two cards easily!  
I used the Stargazer papers here and if you go back
to the top you will see I added stars Thin Cuts from the
Stargazer Card Making Stamps and Thin Cuts set   Z4157 
I would love to know if you made some eclipse cards of your own.  Email me at with your comments or questions. 
With Heart,

For Operation Smile in October

In October, CTMH is highlighting the charity we support,
Operation Smile
Operation Smile performs facial corrective surgery for children
(and Some Adults) all over the world where this vital care
is not available.  Because the surgeries are done with volunteer
doctors, nurses and office staff, each surgery only costs $240!

 As part of my contribution to Operation Smile, I have available
for order kits to make this lovely 6x6 album.  
The cost is $15 (plus $3 for mailing if you are not local).  Of that cost,
I will donate $5 for each album ordered to Operation Smile.

Email me at if you would like to 
order one or more albums.  I will send you an invoice you can pay
through.  Your album and instructions will arrive around the middle of October cut and ready for you to glue together and decorate with the Falling For You complements as you desire. 
 Instructions for assembly will be sent too. 
This is a Brenda Rose design.  
Thank you for letting me share this with others Brenda.

Beary Christmas for October '17

You are sure to be prepared for the Christmas Holiday 
when you use BEARY CHRISTMAS Workshop Your Way
to create the three two page layouts and eight cards.
 For the cards I used the Stamp of the Month Christmas Tunes,
 but you could use the stamps suggested, 
(Z4046 Beary Christmas Cardmaking Stamp and Thin Cuts page 38) 
I changed the banner on the striped background cards to one made of glitter paper.
If you order the WYW kit from me, I will be happy to get those four glitter banners to you.
Please keep in mind the Workshops Your Way have a complete cutting and design guide you can download and print to make your projects look just like this.  So easy!!!!
You can order by going to shopping cart at the top of this blog for your convenience. 

For the month of October I will be offering classes for the assembly of your Beary Christmas Workshops Your Way Kit or the Operation Smile Album (See post above)
