Clear and Simple Stamps | Sweet as Pie Stationery

Sweetest Day is the perfect excuse to indulge in all things sweet! For us, that translated into papercrafting sweet treats over the weekend by way of adorable pie themed stationery to celebrate the occasion. We’ve mentioned a time or two before that we celebrate all holidays big or small, especially the foodie ones – so Sweetest Day was the perfect excuse to get in the studio and create a little something cute! Who doesn’t love a good flaky crust filled with sweet fruit and served á la mode with a scoop of old fashioned vanilla ice cream? To save ourselves from the serious calories associated with eating pie for breakfast, lunch, and dinner we opted for a cute, calorie-free version of stamped stationery.

We certainly kept things simple with this fun pair of cards. We easily created a custom sentiment with a fun play on words that was a perfect fit for this project. We used a mix of the Alpha Thin dies and a stamped sentiment from the Party Elements: BBQ stamp set. While we choose “sweet as pie” you could very simply change around the sayings to make it work for a variety of foodie inspired occasions!
