Today I have a few card projects to share with you using some NEW products by Spellbinders. The Pie Perfection collection designed by Tina Smith is a wonderfully fun set of stamps and dies that help you create pie themed projects easily.
To check out the entire collection (CLICK HERE!) to shop the website and see that everyone is making with these awesome products.
I used the Baker's Box etched dies to create my first card. I cut the box from Kraft cardstock and used to included window die to cut out the window. Acetate was cut to finish off the box portion. I simply cut a 2 1/2 inch square for the back of the box and adhered it together with tear tape adhesive.
Before closing the box, we need to put a pie in it. I wanted a red pie (even though apple pies aren't red). Let's say it's cran-apple! I used the Sky View pies die set to create my cran-apple pie using red cardstock for the inside and Kraft for the outer edges and top. I didn't do any ink blending on this card. I felt that the box itself added a ton of interest and any ink blending would probably be lost.
I closed up the box and wrapped some red and white twine around it and added a tag also from the The Baker's Box set. I stamped "hello cutie" from the Perfect Pie Sentiments stamp set and heat embossed it using white embossing powder.
The sentiment stamped below the box on the card panel was stamped using a combination of black and red ink highlighting the apple portion of the sentiment in red.
To finish off the card I added an apple cut using the Delicious Decorations set also from this collection. The enitre panel measures 3 1/2 by 4 3/4 and is attached to an A2 size gray card base.
For the next card I started with the same size white card panel cut to 3 1/2 by 4 3/4. This time I stamped a row of ants in black ink at the bottom.
I cut another panel to layer on top out of yellow gingham patterned paper. On it I stamped the sentiment in black ink.
The pie was created using the maple leaf die from the Delicious Decorations set out of Kraft cardstock. I added a bit of ink blending to this design with brown ink to make the pie crust look baked. The slice was cut out and the pie was popped up with foam adhesive.
The last card was inspired by key lime pie. I took the bottom of the pie and coated it with white texture paste as if it were meringue. Before it could dry I cut the lime elements and coated them with clear glitter to look like sugar. I then stuck them into the wet texture paste so that when it dried, it would be stuck there in the pie.
I cut this panel the same size as the others but this time I embossed it with the Slimline Circle embossing folder.
The sentiment was stamped and heat embossed before being cut out into a rectangle and popped up onto the bottom of the card.
I hope that I've inspired you to create something today. Thank you for visiting my blog.
