The card I’m sharing with you today is a little sneak peek of two Sale-a-Bration products debuting on July 1st! They are

  • Hippest Hippo Stamp Set #159921 – FREE with a $50 purchase during Sale-a-bration
  • Hippo Dies #159928 – FREE with a $50 purchase during Sale-a-bration



I started with a piece of Balmy Blue cardstock and then added a layer of Basic White cardstock to the front of the card that I embossed using the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder. I also added a piece of Basic White cardstock to the inside of the card. Next, I cut two pieces of Awash in Beauty Designer Series Paper and adhered them to the front of the card (you can find the measurements I used below the Supply List). 


Hippest Hippos



I used the Stylish Shapes Dies to cut a circle out of Basic White cardstock and another, larger circle out of Balmy Blue cardstock. I LOVE that Stampin’ Up! brought back stitched dies!! Love them!!  I layered the two circles together and then added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and placed it on the front of the card. I used the Stylish Shapes Dies again to cut the sentiment piece and then stamped the sentiment in Balmy Blue ink using the Hippest Hippos stamp set. 



I stamped the cute hippo in Memento Ink onto Basic White cardstock and then colored her using Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends and for the flower I used the Dark Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blend.  I cut the hippo out using the Hippo Dies. I adhered one end of the sentiment behind the hippo and then adhered both to the stitched circle. This card came together very quickly and I just love the cute hippo (there are two more hippos in the stamp set and four sentiments).
