Down The Rabbit Hole
The 2017-2018 Stampin' Up!® Annual Catalog is definitely a wonderland full of vibrant colors and textures and a fair amount of magic. From mermaids to flying pigs, you can get lost in it's pages for hours.
I've spent the past month and a half getting to know my favorite sets and making a wish list three pages long (typed!). And wouldn't you know, the Pieces & Patterns suite brought me right down the rabbit hole.
WE'RE PAINTING THE ROSES RED
The Pieces & Patterns collection is beyond adorable. The hand drawn elements are going to be a favorite of mine. There was one stamp in particular which drew my eye; the mushroom. Now, I don't know about you guys, but when I see mushrooms, I think of Alice and her visit to Wonderland.
The Pick a Pattern DSP offered up two items on this card; a paintbrush (which I altered to have red paint) and a little white rabbit who of course, is late for a very important date! Enter the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set. Not only is there a bounty of birthday messages (and in a super cute font) but there is also a "BELATED" stamp. This stamp set also boasts the rose stamps I used. The finishing touch was the splatter stamp from the Timeless Textures set.
I hope you like the finished product! Not that I like to forget a birthday, but I can't wait to have a reason to send this!
I hope you've enjoyed the trip down the rabbit hole. Stop by the comments and let me know where you find your inspiration!
