Miss Ink Stamps – Hip Hippo Hooray

Hello again! Today I’m back with another Miss Ink Stamps card but this one is extra fun and totally adorable too! These hippos are so super cute! Plus today’s card is interactive which makes it even better!

I started by die cutting the parts to my interactive card which come from the Mama Elephant Wiper Surprise die set. Then I cut the tops of the panels with the Lawn Fawn ocean waves border. I inked the top of the waves with a blending brush and Lawn Fawn forget-me-not ink. Next, I took the solid fish images from Hippo Hooray and stamped them in narwhal ink.

I stamped my images from Hippo Hooray and colored them with copics, then used the scan-n-cut to cut them all out and then it was time to start assembling everything. I adhered my wiper mechanism to the back of the front panel and then the panels together. Next, I added my images and moved on to a sentiment.

For that, I stamped and heat embossed it, then trimmed it into a thin strip. I glued it to just part of the card front so that it didn’t inhibit the moving motion needed to let the wiper flip up and down. Just stay to the right of the embossed lines and you’re good. Look at that cute hippo popping up to say hooray! This is too cute!

I don’t ever want finishing touches like glossy accents or Stickles to get in the way of moving pieces on these type of cards, so I left everything to just a few white gel pen highlights and decided this cute card was finished!

I hope you enjoyed it and find a little inspiration to create something wonderful.

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
