Today I have a new stamp for you from Your Next Stamp. I have colored the muffin with copics. I cut out the focal image with a circle nestie and let the leaf extend out of the circle. I then layered the circle nestie with another circle and then the beaded circle nestie. The love muffin sentiment is cut from an oval nestie and layered on the tag nestie.
