Hi Friends!

I am really enjoying the new day and time of my weekly, Stamp with Kurstan Live! videos on Facebook! Are you? I love coffee  and our new coffee and craft time is a favorite of my week, now!

Yesterday I made these two cards, while sharing a new tip for cutting a diagonal layer! If you missed me live, you can catch the replay on my Facebook Business page or on my YouTube channel!  Be sure to set your notifications so you catch me live or get an update when a new video is posted.



The Clever Cats stamp set is too fun! And, of course, the Cute Halloween Suite is too cute! I adore these cards and this layout is SO easy to make a bunch of cards to fill your stash.

Measurements for my layers are listed below, but you’ll want to watch the video to see my tip about lining up your Designer Series Paper on the trimmer to get a nice cut. You can also adjust the height – I found that I really liked the 1 1/4″ mark and it made it super easy to line up.

I paired my Layering Circles dies with the Black Glitter Specialty Paper to get my sparkly scallops. For my circles, I used Basic White Cardstock and the Cute Halloween Designers Series Paper stack.

Here’s my two original cards using this layout.



I love all four but I think the one with the cat peeking out of the pumpkin is my favorite. Which one is your favorite? Share in the comments below.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed this week’s Stamp with Kurstan Live! projects. All of the supplies I used for these cards are listed below.
