Happy Birthday – Eclipse (HLS – Dies)



Hello and welcome

Welcome back to an new challenge over at Happy Little Stampers –  Anything Goes with Dies – June.  I hope you’ll join in the fun this month!

My card is a simple design featuring heat embossing of this little Scottie dog in black and white on the red card. The little dog came from a cheap  stamp set from Aldi.

To overcome the problems of black heat embossing, I stamped first in black and then in clear embossing powder.

The cared front was then cut with the Stitched Rectangle Die.

The MFT Happy die was cut from the card front, before attaching it to a white card front.  Three more die cuts were also made and layered into the card front for the eclipse technique.


The ‘birthday’ sentiment from MFT was stamped on white card and added below the die cut.

Time to head over to our blog to check out the great work by the rest of the Design Team!  Good luck with your entries!

I live in sunny Queensland, Australia with my husband and daughter. Since I was a child, I have always loved to create and have enjoyed all kinds of crafts, sewing and painting. China painting helped develop my understanding of colour and design. Over the last few years card making has taken up a major part of my crafting time as I love to play with new techniques and mediums. Since beginning my blog, entering various challenges has encouraged me to grow my skills and creativity.
