Stamp Review Crew: Animal Outing
Hello everyone! This is our first opportunity to share some brand new stuff from the Annual Catalog! WE are featuring the adorable Animal Outing stamp set. I only had a moment to play with this set before this hop, but I can't wait to play with it again soon.

What is the Stamp Review Crew, you ask? We are an international group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators that gets together to do a blog hop on the first and third (and sometimes on a fifth) Monday of each month. For each hop we chose a single stamp set for us all to use, and then we let our creativity loose! We have a blog with all of the hops archived, so you can hop through any of the hops any time. Click here to go to the blog to see all of the hops! To go to the specific post for this hop, click here, or on the banner above.

If you are following along in order, then you have just arrived from Yapha Mason's blog. She is sure to have a fun use for this set!

I have just one project for you this time, and it is fairly simple. I did add a leaf from the Tropical Chic stamp set, but the main image and the sentiment are from Animal Outing. 

I actually stamped the rhino with the Stamparatus while riding in the car, can you believe it?! I watercolored it while riding in the car too.

I made 8 of these for a swap, and thankfully the ones that I mailed out were matted straight. 😏

I used the new Gray Granite ink for the rhino, and it is perfect! And I really wanted to use Granny Apple Green for the background, but I only got 4 sheets of the color right away. Lemon Lime Twist still looks great with it though!

While I am loving the new color revamp, I couldn't get everything at once. And I really couldn't guess which colors I was going to fall in love with until I got them in my hands and played with them.

Well, that is all i have for you, and I am the last stop on the hop. If you started somewhere in the middle, then Natalie Lapakko is your next stop!

Love the Climbing Vine background - that, along with the Tropical Chic leaf really give it a jungle feel! I’m going to try the Gray Granite on my next rhino; love how that turned out!
