Mmmmm… Pie!

I’m not sure if it’s maybe a hint that someone needs to make me a pie… but whatever made me make this card I like the outcome! I used stamps from Simply Stamps and my Mini MISTI from My Sweet Petunia.

BTW… Simply Stamps has Buy More, Get More Sale going on use code SPRINGSAVINGS

Yes… these are wood block stamps and YES I used my MISTI! The cool thing about most stamps from Simply Stamps is they are clear stamps mounted onto a backing sheet that is applied to a wood mount. So you can peel them off and use them with your .Fun huh? Best of both worlds.

Pie Thank You Jeanne_Streiff

I had this idea after I had some ink bleed through acrylic paint and I decided I would try and do it on purpose this time with a pattern.

I started by making a mask with a post-it note that I cut into a circle and placed on my card. I went ahead and stamped my Apple Pie image where it was going to go on my card as a visual aid for my design.

1 Pie Thank You Jeanne_Streiff

I used my Blending Tool to make a random circle border with Distress inks. and then sponged around my Post-it mask.

2 Pie Thank You Jeanne_Streiff

I used a paint brush and white acrylic paint and added some random wavy lines and then I splattered some paint.

3 Pie Thank You Jeanne_Streiff

I peeled off my mask.

4 Pie Thank You Jeanne_Streiff

Since I had my inks out I swiped them on some white cardstock and added a little splattering to the pink. I stamped the Apple Pie image twice.

5 Pie Thank You Jeanne_Streiff

I stamped the Apple Pie in my circle. I cut out the pie pieces and sponged a little before assembling and adding to my card on top of the stamped image.

7 Pie Thank You Jeanne_Streiff

To finish my card I added the Thank You sentiment a few more white paint splatters and a little faux stitching around my circle with a black pen.

8 Pie Thank You Jeanne_Streiff

Thankful Jeanne_Streiff

I watercolored a splashy image (see colors below). After it was completely dry I stamped my sentiment with black ink. 1 Thankful Jeanne_Streiff

I inked up my leaf stamps in orange (Spiced Marmalade) and then tapped in a bit of deep red Aged Mahogany) ink randomly before stamping. Because it was on watercolor I needed to stamp more than once to get a nice solid image. I kept going stamping leaves until I had framed the sentiment.2 Thankful Jeanne_Streiff

I finished my card by adding some gold metallic tape from Hobby Tape under the sentiment words and adhering the panel to a kraft card base.
