The Animal Outing stamp set is perfect for colouring with Stampin Blends.  For these projects I used both the Note Cards & Envelopes and Narrow Note Cards & Envelopes.  These handy packs make creating quick cards a doddle!

My Giraffe card is made using the Narrow Note Cards.  I used my Crumb Cake Blend marker to dot a wee border around the outside just to break up the white space.  I wanted my envelope to coordinate with the card.  What better way than to put giraffe print on the flap!  To do this, I created a mask out of Vellum card using the Animal Friends Thinlit dies.   I sponged Daffodil Delight ink all over the flap, then I sponged Crumb Cake ink through the vellum mask to make the giraffe spots!

How cute is this Hippo, ahem, Rhino?!!  I used the Note Cards & Envelopes to create this little guy.  A little background sponging was done before I added my fussy cut Hippo over the top with Dimensionals.  I actually didn't have the Animal Friends Thinlts when I created this card, but he was easy enough to cut around that it didn't matter.
