Sweet As Pie


Hi everyone,

Recently Karen Burniston invited me to play along for this month’s Pop ‘N Cuts feature that Karen does every month with her Design Team … how exciting is that!!!

This month the challenge is to use any of the 10 Pop ‘N Cuts Imagery Inserts as pictured below.


Today I am playing with Karen’s Pop N Cuts SU Card Base Die and the Pop N Cuts Dress Form Insert which are both exclusive to Stampin’ Up.

I have seen so many wonderful things made with these dies and I wanted to come up with something I hadn’t seen already using the dress form insert and finally came up with doing a kitchen scene.


First up we have my card when it is closed. For this I have used the SU Exclusive Pop N Cuts Card Base. I added a pie from the Hero Arts What’s the Scoop stamp set which has been stamped and layered using Karen’s Sizzix Wavy Labels Framelits set.


For the inside of my card I used different designer papers to create the kitchen floor and wallpaper. I turned the square support piece at the back of the dress form into an oven by cutting a window into a rectangle piece of card and adding acetate to the back. I even added a handle but that got hidden when I added the dress onto my dress form.

Many of the kitchen pieces on this card are from a really old SU stamp set I have had called Love Bakes, but since making this card I have found a few other kitchen related stamp sets I just might need if I make another one Winking smile. The shelving on the right hand side was created by stamping and cutting apart and then piecing back together what I needed that would fit in the space I had … I needed something to hold all those kitchen bits and pieces.

I have again used the Wavy Labels Framelits for my sentiment which I placed on the “floor”.


I have used Karen’s Dress Form Framelits (also exclusive to SU) to dress my dress form …  including the dress form from this set as I had to cut the bottom part away when creating the oven. I used designer paper for the dress and then a doily for the apron which was also cut out using the dress die from this Framelits set.


Here is a close up of the oven so you see what’s cooking … well have a pie and a loaf of bread.
