Greeting Card Design with the Rhino Ready Stamp Set by Stampin’ Up

a greeting card layout made with stampin up supplies

The Rhino Ready stamp set by Stampin’ Up features a cute rhino in a variety of positions as well as grass, birds and a few versatile sentiments. I wanted to pair this cute set with the Taco Fiesta stamp set (that I’ve used in card layouts before) to create a whole new story in a 4″ x 6″ card layout.

Please Note: Rhino Ready is an online exclusive and is not featured in the new annual catalog. It is available as a stamp set with dies or without. I did not use the dies for this card.

My Stampin’ Up Tools are an indispensable part of my creative process. Here are some tools I used to make this card and most of my others. Maybe you have some of these in your workshop?


  • Paper Trimmer – One of my fist supplies I got when I started Stampin’ Up. The blades have lasted me a long time!
  • Die Cutting Machine – Available in 2 sizes. I wrote tips for them here.
  • Adhesive – I used Tombow Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Snips – A fancy word for scissors
  • Blender Sponge Daubers – Some people like brushes. I like daubers because they’re small, easy to store and they fit on my finger.


Masking paper is the thing that makes this card possible. Stamping layers over layers cuts the weight of this card as well as the time it makes to produce it. This technique also makes coloring my designs a lot more fun. The Masking Paper technique I use in my video below is perfect for designing with stamp sets that don’t have dies with them. Why? Because a layered stamp design is easier than a design that requires each character to be stamped and hand cut. This limits the amount of ‘Fussy Cutting’ to one mask per character that can be saved for multiple uses. I show you how here:
