Did you know....?

That April 23rd is World Laboratory Animal Day? Just thought you might be interested! I was playing around w/ my new stamps from Kitchen Sink Stamps and I brought out Pretty Tera Drops. This set is kind of like Pick a Petal from Stampin' Up. You have a few petals to choose from, a stem, and some little petals that you can use for other things. So, I took one of the large petals and made a mouse! And what goes better w/ a mouse, than some cheese! Now, do mice really like swiss cheese? Who knows! But, since this is the most popular in regard to mice, I figured I would make swiss cheese out of my cardstock! I used several circle punches and two different eyelet hole makers (is there a proper word for these?) to get the look I wanted. Then, I "sliced" the cheese down to make it more like cheese. I grabbed Celebrate from my All Year Cheer and stamped that on vanilla. Oh, the cheese is Barely Banana. I drew a banner around the celebrate and cut it out. I attached w/ a toothpick!

For the mouse: I took that large petal and ran it across my Sahara Sand ink pad to make it look furry. I don't really know if I achieved that look! Then, I used a small circle stamp to make the eye. And a small petal stamp stamped in Pretty In Pink and cut out. I stamped the same petal and just used the top round part for the nose and mouth I guess. The tail is a small stem.

So, it's something different from this Pretty Tera Drops! Can't wait to find more uses for this set!

Thanks for stopping by!
Have some cheese!
"Cheese" you later!
Happy Stamping!!!
