Today’s project and tutorial features the new Animal Outing stamp set. This adorable stamp set (page 27) includes images for a kangaroo, koala, rhino, giraffe and four greetings with creative text. This stamp set caught my eye because of their sweet expressions. This card uses the Stampin’ Blends to provide color, very much like a marker, with little to no shading. These alcohol-based markers will provide flawless coverage without the harsh lines that markers create. And don’t miss the grass and flowers that were added using the Blends! They’re the perfect touch to this floral designer paper.

I’ve included written instructions for today’s project below. I also have a free PDF tutorial available for those that would like to download and save this project for a later day. Don’t forget to check out my  PDF Tutorial Library for more project tutorials that feature complete card collections and fancy folds.
