Hello there lovely! Thanks for dropping by my blog today – thrilled to have you here.
I am excited to share another card with one of my favourite Sale-a-Bration products – the Hippest Hippos!
This set – well combination of stamps and dies is just adorable!
I saw this beautiful hippo and the love heart dies and just wanted to make this beautiful heart filled card full of love to give to a friend. I wanted to make it bright and HAPPY!
Here’s a look at the finished card. I had so much colour going on with all those hearts, so the card itself I kept simple with layers of Basic Black and Basic White with just some simple blending in Coastal Cabana.
I have die cut the hearts in; Parakeet Party, Mango Melody Real Red, Polished Pink, Fresh Freesia and Bermuda Bay. My little hippo is coloured in with some Watercolour Pencils. I have loved trialling this style of colouring lately. I do need a bit more practice, but it’s a load of fun.
I have used the Basic Grey, Basic Black and White pencils.
Here is a close up look at the finished card.
I cut my little ‘bucket’ for my hippo using the hippo dies from some Brushed Metallic silver foil and wrapped some Linen Thread for some extra texture.
To add some embellishing I added some of the 2022-2024 In Colour Matte Dots and some of the For Everything Fancy Sequins for some sparkle.
Here is a look at the inside of the card where I have replicated the hippo and some leftover die cuts as well as an additional sentiment and a strip of the In Colour Glimmer Paper in Parakeet Party down the left hand side.
I had a load of fun making this bright and happy card.
