Hello and Welcome to the October Paper Crafting Monthly Blog Hop! This month's theme is fall/Thanksgiving. If you are zipping across the U.S. from Jennifer's blog, thank you!
I was thinking a lot of our bloggers might be featuring the wonderful Country Home stamp set or the Colorful Seasons bundle with it's great maple leaf dies so I decided to use something a bit different. You've probably seen the Buffalo Check background stamp all over Pinterest and the Internet and you may have even seen the pie idea but I decided to combine the two and add in the Apron of Love stamp set and Apron Builder Framelits for some fall/Thanksgiving baking.
You may have noticed I've added a few more lines to the Buffalo Check to make it more of a plaid. That's so easy to do and adds even more variety to the color combinations you can come up with. My check was stamped in Pumpkin Pie Classic Ink on a Very Vanilla background. Using the Stamparatus alignment tool makes this easy and quick. I added additional lines with my Cajun Craze and Early Espresso Stampin' Write Markers and a ruler. The pie is made with several sizes of Layering Circle Framelits and one of the Stitched Shaped Framelits for the Galvaized Tin pie plate.
Utensils were die cut with the Apron Builder Framelits from the Wood Textures 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper (DSP) and Cherry Cobbler cardstock. I applied pieces of the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets to the back of the cardstock and DSP before cutting the tiny pieces. It makes attaching them so much easier!! I also used the cross stitch die from the Stitched Labels Framelits for the sentiment.
To get the "layered look" on some of my utensils like the rolling pin and spatula, I cut the images once out of the Wood Textures DSP and once out of Cherry Cobbler cardstock, trimmed and attached one over the other.
There will be lots of pie making before you know it. I only hope the weather will be much cooler in my neck of the woods by that time!
