Stampin’ Up Animal Outing

Hello Everyone ~ I played with a new set today for my Stampin’ Up Animal Outing creation.

I hope you had a great day yesterday.  I ended up going on base with Jess and the girls to see the fireworks they had.  They had a few games and bounce houses set up also so the girls had a great time.  The fireworks were good and the girls enjoyed them.  They were tired though as they had spent the morning at the beach also.  I am headed to the yarn shop today to do some more knitting on my sister’s scarf.  When I get home I will be working on some more cards for my Catalog Journey.

Today’s card for the Catalog Journey is one I will be sending to the girls.  I recently got this bundle as I knew I could use it for cards for the girls so I just had to order it.  I had the coordinating designer series paper so I thought I would use a piece of that.  I chose the paper that had the hippos on it as I just loved those butterflies.  I used the dots from the Swirly Bird stamp set to add some interest to the card.  I then cut a strip and attached it to the Melon Mambo layer.  I added a piece of the Pool Party shimmer ribbon to cover up the edge of the paper.  This panel was mounted onto a Whisper White card base.  I stamped the rhinocerous using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then used the Smoky Slate alcohol markers to color him in.  To color the bird, I colored him first with a Blushing Bride marker and then added some Melon Mambo along the belly.  To blend them I used the Blushing Bride marker to color over the whole bird again.  If you do this, make sure you scribble the dark color off your light marker so it does not ruin it.  The beak was colored with the Daffodil Delight marker.  I cut the square and then mounted the square onto a piece of Smokey Slate card stock.  I attached the image layer using dimensionals.  Here is the adorable Stampin’ Up Animal Outing rhinoceros.
