This is a clean and simple design using just a few supplies. Card Recipe: 1. Take a  stitched rectangle nesting die cut from  white card stock 2. Using a  paper trimmer cut diagonally from corner to corner so you have 2 pieces.

Hey Crafty Friends, As you know we lost our Queen recently, it's been incredibly sad and we sure sent her off in style. The queen was well known for her love of animals especially her love of Corgi dogs. I just had to pull out the  Oh Crumbs stamp set from Heffy Doodle. As you may know I love to mix and match my sets and as we're heading into Autumn I decided to make an autumnal themed card instead of the traditional 'tea party'. I'm pairing the Corgis with the brand new  Perfect Blend stamp set also by Heffy Doodle. Card Recipe: 1. Stamp images on  alcohol marker friendly card stock and colour in copic markers.

Hey Crafty Friends, We're celebrating the latest release at  Kraftin Kimmie Stamps with an  Instagram Hop. I've used the brand new  Autumn Pumpkins stamp set to create this Pumpkin shaker coffee cup. If your a Pumkin spiced latte lover then this would be perfect or give it as a gift! I'm using the Heffy Doodle brand new  Coffee Cup Shaker dies. You can create many things with this set, I've taken some plain white card stock and stamped the single Pumpkin from  Autumn Pumpkins stamp set. I've stamped them randomly so it's not symmetrical and don't be afraid to stamp off the page so your only partially get the image! I've coloured my pumpkins in Copic markers YR18, YR16, YR14 Turn your  coffee cup into a  shaker by die cutting another base and use the window die to cut the front out. Use  acetate to cover the panel, lay down some  Pumpkin Spice sparkle mix and use  foam tape to attach your front panel to your coloured Pumpkin background. Take a
