Lil' Inker Designs September Release Day 3

Welcome back to the last day of the Lil' Inker Designs September release!  If you are following along in the blog hop you should have come from Heather Hoffman's Blog All of the products are currently available in the Lil' Inker Designs store, so you can start shopping now! :)  

Eat Pie
My last 2 cards for this release uses a stamp set that makes me chuckle called Eat Pie.  It reminds me of Chick-fil-a's popular campaign with the cows wearing signs trying to guide people to eat chicken...not cows. 😁

**And be sure to scroll down because my 9 year old daughter is joining me for this post with her card made from this set too!**

Stamping the turkey in this set was a lot of fun.  You may think that I just used random colors but I was actually really inspired by a gorgeous real life breed of turkey shown above.

To assemble the turkey, I first die cut her using the Eat Pie dies.  I then stamped each piece of the turkey with the Eat Pie Stamp set with bright inks (listed below), trying to use the colors in the turkey above.  I die cut the sign, pumpkin & squirrel and stamped them with the same set.  The background was die cut with Cover Up Die: Stitched Clouds.  And the hill was created using one of the dies from Dual Dotted Border Builder Dies.

Introducing Sadie's (9 Years Old) Eat Pie Card
When I was making my card, my 9 year old daughter Sadie saw the set and wanted to make a card too.  I have to say she did a wonderful job!  I'm so proud of her!

Here she is with her card.

For her card she also wanted to use bright colors but on a brown turkey (inks listed below).  She die cut the turkey, sign & pumpkins with the Eat Pie dies and then stamped the individual pieces with the coordinating Eat Pie Stamp set.  She cut the sign down so that it looked like he was picketing to eat pie, not turkey.  The hill was die cut with one of the Border Builder dies.  She die cut the Sunshine (large) and then stamped a face & mustache from the So Prickly stamp set (totally her idea!).

Didn't she do a great job?  I loved listening to her thought process as she thought out each detail!  I know she'd love reading your comments for her card (if you are inclined to leave one)!

  3. Your colorful turkey is beautiful.

  4. The colorful turkey is just too cute! And your daughter is really adorable. Love her card!

  5. Wow, that technicolor turkey is so fun...and really does call to mind that breed of turkey with the peacock colors! Your daughter's card is just adorable, with the patterned paper hills and expertly stamped (although more sedate) pie-loving turkey

  6. This turkey is so silly and fun I love it! Sadie's card is fun and colorful I think is fantastic. Is so great to see the kiddos doing crafts as well and seeing how their creativity is so fearless! Thanks for sharing and the inspiration.

  7. Wow!!! Great cards!!! Both are absolutely cute and so funny!!!

  10. Sadie, that is my life's slogan!!! LOve your card, and the bright beautiful colors you've used for that Turkey's tail feathers!

  11. She did a fabulous job! That turkey is a hoot! Thanks for sharing!

  12. Jen your card is so sweet and the Stitched Clouds really show up in the background but still lets your turkey and sign be the star of the card.
    Sadie's card is amazing, does she have a blog yet? She should! I'd follow her in a heart beat! There's an idea for her: She should "pioneer" a card blog for kids. Maybe other talented children can follow suit and start their own card blogs just like their Momma's. Great work Sadie!
