I am a complete fool for charming animal images. It’s really outside my everyday aesthetic – I don’t have cute Rhino tee-shirts or Kangaroo print tote bags or Giraffe prints on my walls. But these guys, along with a half dozen other Stampin’ Up! Critter Stamps, just plain make me happy:
- Stamps: Animal Outing
- Color Palette: Whisper White, Basic Gray, Basic Black, Pool Party, Call Me Clover, Pool Party, Granny Apple Green
- Accessories: Animal Expeditions DSP, Big Shot, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Animal Friends Thinlits, Stampin’ Blends, Stampin’ Dimensionals, 1/8″ Grosgrain ribbon
Animal Outing and the Animal Friends Thinlits are available in a convenient bundle. Did you know that you’ll automatically save 10% on all Stampin’ Up! bundles? Every little bit helps.
Crafty Friends, if you have not yet invested in the Stitched Shapes Framelits, I highly recommend you consider that purchase. I use them on EVERYTHING. You’ll get an assortment of circles, ovals and squares in one convenient package! Believe me when I tell you that you NEED this product.
I’ve spent some time working with Stampin’ Blends, and I’m starting to get a feeling for it. My fundamental approach is Use The Lines. Shading this Rhino was simply a matter of using the Dark Basic Gray Blend along the lines and the Light version everywhere else.
