Stampin’ Up’s Animal Outing stamp set is the cutest! The baby rhinoceros has been stamped and colored many times in shades of gray, but this rhino wanted to show off the new “in color” Blueberry Bushel.
Can you see the shading on Baby Rhino? This was done with the Bokeh Dots stamp. I inked the Bokeh Dots stamp in Blueberry Bushel, stamped on Thick Whisper White cardstock, and used the rhino die for cutting. I don’t mind fussy cutting sometimes, but this die cuts between the horn and the bird perfectly. So glad I didn’t have to cut that by hand!
The Animal Friends die set also has a die for cutting those colorful, vertical plants. I positioned the die on Whisper White cardstock, as you see, running it through the Big Shot three times. Then, I used the Stampin’ Trimmer to cut three strips of colorful paper, 1/2″ X 3 1/4″. The strips were taped to the back before adhering the art piece to a Thick Whisper White card base.
I used Blueberry Bushel ink for Baby Rhino, and Lovely Lipstick, Call Me Clover, and Pineapple Punch cardstock for the plants. The 5th new color, Grapefruit Grove, was introduced with the sentiment from the Animal Outing stamp set. I stamped “Thank you, big time,” and used a Layering Oval die for cutting.
I placed Baby Rhino and the sentiment on dimensionals, and my bright , cheery thank you card was complete.
