Apple of my Eye ~ Pie Series

Hi Everyone!  I am so sorry if you came by earlier to see the next pie in the series.  The wee ones needed my attention.  Not to worry, I am back  on track!  Today/tonight's post is apple pie:

Materials Used:
  • My Pink Stamper Fruit and Veggie Puns stamp set
  • Cricut cartridges Tags, Bags, Boxes and More, George and Basic Shapes, Fabulous Finds, and Preserves.
  • Stampin' Up Barely Banana, So Saffron, Naturals Ivory and Early Espresso
  • Stampin' Up 1 1/4 grosgrain ribbon in Early Espresso
  • Stampin' Up ink in Early Espresso and Crumb Cake
  • Stampin' Up Rich Regals brads
The crust on this pie is pretty simple, but it's how they usually look in reality. I added a apple crust shape to the crust.  Some bakers do this and I think it looks super cute when they do.  I achieved the dimension on the crust by turning it backside up and rubbing it with the end of  a tool on a mat.  I also inked the top so the crevices would show better.

The apples are all inked differently to create variety.  I cut them approximately in half at different angles to again achieve variety.  I sponged the pie base and apple pieces in Crumb Cake ink to mimic cinnamon.  I then added them to the pie base in different positions and layers.  Lastly, I inked my sentiment and added it to the pie.  
Thank you for joining me.  Until the next pie...adieu.
