Die Cuts for HLS


This month's CAS challenge at Happy Little Stampers is to use die cuts.
I must confess to being a little addicted to die cutting. Here I used three dies from Simon Says Stamp combined with a couple of sentiments from Happy Little Stampers. I rather like the combination of script and print for sentiments so I used the 'Happy' from HLS Doodled Flowers 'Happy Birthday' and the 'Anniversary' from HLS Everyday sentiments. My MISTI came in really handy for the positioning of the stamps.  They were simply embossed in silver to match the grey backing of the heart.




Here is another one using a butterfly stamp and matching die from HLS. I stamped onto a piece of smooshed card and then embossed with holographic embossing powder after die-cutting.
The smile sentiment is from CUTplorations
