Ink It Up with Leigh Penner: Cutie Pie

Isn't this fun?  It's about time I pulled out the Easy as Pie stamp set by Reverse Confetti.  I bought it last November and it has sat unused since.  I love the matching dies and knew it would be perfect to make cards for my sister-in-law, who makes delicious pies!  I just had to use it for the newest Ink It Up post.  Leigh Penner of To the Full and I make a card twice a month using our uninked stamps, posting on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays.

I found the darling cherry print paper in the Farmhouse 6x6 pad by Crate Paper and paired it with a Kraft card base.  I also cut a strip of Kraft cardstock with a Pierced Fishtail Flags STAX die.  You just can't tell because I cut off the ends to fit the width of the card.  I stamped a sentiment from Easy as Pie on the strip in Dark Chocolate ink. 

I cut a scalloped circle from Rustic Cream cardstock, which echoes the background print rather nicely.  I chose another patterned paper from the Farmhouse pad for my pie pan.  For the crust, I cut Kraft and Cherry Cobbler cardstock, pieced them together, and covered the whole thing with glitter.  (wishing now that I had sponged it first for some shading)  I added some steam using the Fancy Flourishes stamps and dies by Papertrey Ink.  It's done in Dark Chocolate ink on Rustic Cream cardstock.

I layered everything together, popping up the crust just slightly for dimension.  It turned out very cute!  Make sure you check out Leigh's card here.  Thanks for dropping by.

  1. Oh, this is so sweet and fun, Heidi! I love how you used this set-- especially the fun flourish coming out of the pie, making it look hot from the oven!

  2. You've done it, Heidi: sparked a craving for pie! Your card is delightful and certainly scrumptious! Love that hot-from-the-oven flourish of steam! I bet it's a rhubarb favourite! Another great collaboration with Leigh!

  3. Oh, this is darling! Love that sweet little pie image.
