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.
