Ruby the Rhino is from the Rhino Ready Stamp Set, an “online exclusive.” She is no longer in a catalog, and her dies are no longer available, but she didn’t want you to forget about her. You can order her by clicking on her picture in my Product List below.
Ruby asked that I stamp her in Memento Black Ink on Basic White Cardstock, and color her with Gray Granite Stampin’ Blends. If you are lucky enough to have the dies, you can use one for cutting, or, she said she wouldn’t mind being fussy cut.
For her background, I applied Granny Apple Green Ink, with a Small Blending Brush, to the bottom half of Basic White Cardstock, 4″ X 5 1/4″.
Next, I stamped grass, from the Rhino Ready Stamp Set, in Wild Wheat Ink, and colored it with a Wild Wheat Stampin’ Write Marker and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.
The Tropical Leaf at the top is also an “online exclusive,” along with its Tropical Leaf Punch. I stamped the leaves in Old Olive Ink, and the veins in Memento Black Ink, and used the punch for cutting. Two leaves were glued flat, and one was lifted with Dimensionals. Before gluing my layer to the Wild Wheat card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″, I trimmed the edges off of the leaves.
I left just enough space for Ruby to say,”hello, friend.” This is one of five sentiments in the Rhino Ready Stamp Set.
I was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches.
