Stampin' Up! Hippest Hippos Stamp Set

The hippos in the Hippest Hippos stamp set (earn free with a $50 purchase) are so cute! And, I love all the die choices in the Hippos Dies (earn free with a $50 purchase).

To create this card, I:

  • Used a Blending Brush with Pacific Point ink to add a light background to a Basic White panel.
  • Stamped the hippo in Memento Ink and colored him with a Light Smoky Slate and Light Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend.
  • Die cut the hippo with coordinating die.
  • Stamped the sentiment from Sunny Splash stamp set with Pacific Point ink.
  • Die cut the bee, life preserver, waves, boat, and snorkel with coordinating dies. (Tip: I did use adhesive sheets to make the small pieces easier to adhere.)
  • Adhere all to a Tahitian Tide card base.

See a thank you card below using the Hippest Hippos stamp set Hippos Dies.
