I know I tend to say I LOVE a stamp set or product.  And I suppose that is why I am a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.  I like their products more than any other stamping company.  And I do like most all of the stamp sets.  But here I go again……I love the Animal Outing stamp set.  At first glance you may think it is for children and I don’t do many children’s cards.  Please look at it again!!  I rarely do a child card, but I am in love with these images.  So here is another Animal Outing Card.


Animal Outing, 146600



I think the expression on the Rhinoceros is like a very humble “you are welcome”!  Or maybe I am losing it ! LOL…

I very much like (love) the Stampin’ Blends, and am so happy they are back in stock plus the addition of quite a few new colors.  Although this stamp does not require blending, I still used the light and the dark of the Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends.  I simply went over the darker areas with the darker shade and it magically blended itself.  Yay Me !

I also have a little paper tip for you.  Never throw away your paper scraps, especially the ones where you trim 1/8 or 1/4.  That is what I used for my gray stripe to break up all of the yellow.  How handy is that???

Thank you very much for visiting today!  I greatly appreciate it.  I have listed the measurements a little further down.  Also, be sure and check back tomorrow for the InKing Royalty Blog Hop!  You will get some great holiday ideas!
