Stampin’ Up! Rhino Ready Birthday

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. I hope your weekend is going well.

Today’s card is one that we made last Sunday at our quarterly team meeting. The card was designed by one or my team members Tara Carpenter. This was a lot of fun to make. The bundle we used for this card is an Online Exclusive product. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Thino Ready Birthday 1

I used the Stampin’ Up! Rhino Ready Bundle along with Scalloped Contours Dies and Like An Animal Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Thino Ready Birthday 2

I started by adhering a panel of Like An Animal DSP to a Basic Gray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using the Scalloped Contours Dies. Using Post-It Note tape, I taped off all 4 sides of the die along the dotted lines. Using the Blending Brushes I added Daffodil Delight Ink on the top, Mango Melody Ink in the center and Pumpkin Pie Ink on the bottom.

Using the Rhino Ready Dies, I cut the tree trunk from the panel of Soft Suede, grass from the Granny Apple Green and treetop from the scrap of Awash In Beauty DSP. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the adorable rhino and sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Rhino Ready Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the rhino out using the Rhino Ready Dies and the sentiment using the Something Fancy Dies. I colored the rhino using the Gray Granite and Ivory Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I adhered the tree trunk to the die cut panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the treetop, grass, rhino and sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added Matte Black Dots to the card front.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from Rhino Ready stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White. I adhered a strip of Like An Animal DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to the inside of the Basic Gray card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the rhino image from the Rhino Ready stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Gray Granite and Ivory Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Like An Animal DSP to the envelope flap.

In response to changing policies at Stampin’ Up – I’m adjusting my Ordering Gift policy as well.  I’m having to get a little more tough on the adding of Host codes when you place your order thru my Online Store.

Not to worry – you’re still going to get that $10 ordering gift for orders of $50 (before shipping & tax) or greater.  And the gift is still any 1 SU! product up to that $10 value – which includes some of our fun Host Sets!

But – if you DO NOT use the Host code for your orders of less than $150 (this is the RETAIL total before Shipping & Handling), then you’ll have two options:

  1. You’ll need to call Stampin’ Up! (1-800-Stamp-Up) and ask them to add it for you. They’re very helpful and will get it done quickly!  OR….
  2. If your order was over the $50 threshold but under $150, then…you’ll forfeit that $10 ordering gift and rewards – this is the Bummer Option – and I REALLY don’t want to do this, SO please remember to add my Current Host Code.
