Cherry Pie Bliss

Good morning Cottage Cutz fans!  There is still time to enter the first Scrapping Cottage Challenge for a chance to win a $25.00 gift certificate to The Scrapping Cottage Store.  We have had some wonderful entries!  You can read all the details here.  Kay will be posting challenge #2 on Saturday, June 11.

Now on to my card for today.  I used the cherry pie slice from the In The Kitchen Clear Stamps and the tiny cherry stamp from the Homemade Tag Clear Stamp.  I also used the Circles With Eyelets die for the cherry pie slices.  

I love to use stamps to create background papers.  For this card I used the tiny cherry stamp from the Homemade Tag Clear Stamp.  If you have been following me for awhile, you know that I love cherries.  I have made many cards with cherries on them and never grow tired of them.  When I lived in Wisconsin we used to go cherry picking.  YUM!!!  I have cherry decor in my kitchen, on plates and towels...... well you get the idea.

I stamped the pie slice three times and colored with Prismacolor colored pencils.  I cut the pie slices out and mounted them on the small circles from the circle eyelet die.  If I had known my final design of the card I probably would have stamped the slice onto the circles, although I do like the added dimension from cutting them out.  If I needed to make a lot of the same card, I think stamping directly to the circle would be the way to go.  The YUM sentiment is from the Kitchen Clear Stamps, and I used some ruffled black gingham ribbon to finish the card.  Thanks so much for having a look!

Hugs and smiles,
