Pies Galore using Spellbinders

Hello and welcome! Today I have two cards for you using the Spellbinders Perfect Pies Etched Dies. As soon as I seen these dies, I knew I had to have them. The best part is the ideas are endless! Lemon Meringue, Blueberry, Apple...what ever your favorite pie is, you can create it! 

For this first card, I cut the A2 card base using 110lb cardstock. Then using my MFT A2 Stitched Rectangle die in the largest size, I cut out two rectangles with the same 110lb cardstock. 

I used my MFT Basket Weave Stencil and Distress Ink in Peacock Feathers to create the background. Then I die cut out the white frame from MFT A2 Rectangle Frames dies. I took the inside piece and stamped the sentiments from the Spellbinders Perfect Pie Sentiments stamps in Distress Oxide Ink in Tumbled Glass

For the pie, I die cut the pie plate using a matte aluminum looking cardstock. I die cut the pie crust with kraft cardstock and shaded it with Distress Ink in Vintage Photo. Then I die cut the pie filling with a scrap piece of dark blue cardstock. 

I used the Spellbinders Delicious Decorations and die cut the flowers, leaves and blueberries. I added some dimension and color using my Copic markers. I stamped the sentiment on black cardstock and embossed it using white embossing powder. 

 For the apple pie card, I cut an A2 sized card out of a dark red cardstock. Then using my MFT A2 Stitched Rectangles in the largest size, I die cut two rectangles to use as the backgrounds. 

I used my Concord & 9th plaid background stamp and a dark red ink pad to make the plaid background. Then I die cut out another rectangle in white 110lb cardstock and used my MFT Stitched Scalloped Edges die and cut part of it away, leaving this super cute scalloped edge. 

For the pie, I die cut the pie plate in the same aluminum cardstock as the blueberry pie. I made the crust the same, only this time I die cut steam holes into the top of the crust and added a red cardstock behind to show the pie through the steam holes. 

Using the Spellbinders Delicious Decorations, I die cut out an apple slice and the half apple. I also die cut out the flower and leaves. I added some glossy accents to the edges of the apples and I added some glitter to the top edge of the pie crust to make it look like sugar on top. I stamped the sentiment from the Perfect Pie Sentiments with MFT Extreme Black Hybrid Ink.

I just love when you can get a die set that has so many uses! I can't wait to make more pies using this set. If you plan to get this set, be sure to get the decorations! As always, thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
