Good Morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! The cute Stampin’ Up! Rhino Ready bundle is one of the new Online Exclusives items that you can only purchase in the Online Store. It has 3 cute little rhinos and great sentiments. The dies have some pretty greenery dies to cut out the stamped images. You can find the supplies I used along with card stock cuts at the bottom of my post.
We have a sketch challenge this week:
I adhered a panel of Design A Daydream designer series paper to the front of an Old Olive card base. with liquid glue. I used Blending Brushes to apply Old Olive, Balmy Blue and Calypso Coral ink to a Basic White panel. I stamped the grass from the Stampin’ Up! Rhino Ready cling stamp set in Old Olive ink across the bottom of the panel and colored the grass with the light Old Olive Stampin’ Blend. I cut the pannel out with the 4th largest Deckled Rectangles die and adhered it to a Soft Suede mat and then to the card front with liquid glue.
I applied a piece of adhesive sheet to a Soft Suede panel and cut out the small tree die from the Stampin’ Up! Rhino Ready dies. I peeled the adhesive covering off the back of the tree and adhered the die cut to the card. I cut the small treetop from Mossy Meadow and adhered it with dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment inn Basic Gray on Pear Pizzazz and cut it out with the smallest Deckled Rectangle die. I adhered it to the card with glue dots.
I stamped the rhino from the Stampin’ Up! Rhino Ready stamp set in Basic Gray on Basic White and colored it with Gray Granite Stampin’ Blends. I stamped the little bird in Basic Gray and colored it with light Balmy Blue and light Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. I cut them out with the coordinating dies. I also cut two large leaves from Granny Apple Green and two small leaves from Pear Pizzazz. I adhered the leaves and little bird with glue dots and the rhino with dimensionals. I finished with Mossy Meadow faceted dots.
For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Rhino Ready stamp set in Basic Gray on a Basic White panel. I stamped the birthday party horn in Basic Gray and colored it with light Balmy Blue and light Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. I trimmed the bottom with Design A Daydream DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
The little rhinos from the Stampin’ Up! Rhino Ready bundle are so cute and perfect for children’s cards. I’m also anxious to combine them with the cute little elephants from the Elephant Parade stamp set for a safari theme card – wouldn’t that be cute!
