Hello everyone! Thank you so much for stopping by today. I have a super cute, punny hippo card to share with you today featuring Miss Ink Stamps stencils and Hippo Hooray stamp set.
To create my card, I cut a white cardstock panel to A2 size and a yellow cover panel 1/8 inch smaller on both sides. This makes the yellow panel measure 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 inches. Using my hippo stamp as a guide, I cut a circle off the edge of the yellow panel.
Then I places both panels in my MISTI and lined up the stamps. I removed the yellow one and stamped my images. Then I used my copics to color the hippo and a light blue for a watery background.
Next, I sprayed my floral wave offset stencil with pixie spray and stuck it to the yellow panel. I inked it up with a brighter yellow ink and a blending brush. I removed that stencil and taped the tiny snowfall stencil down next. This time I spread champagne metallix gel from Thermoweb through it. I removed the stencil and cleaned everything up. While it was drying, I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment, then die cut it with a banner from Trinity Stamps Mini Slimline Card and Envelope Builder die set. It fits most of these sentiments perfectly!
Moving on to assembly and finishing touches, I adhered the colored panel to a white card base. Then I backed the yellow panel with foam tape and popped it in place. Last I added foam squares to the sentiment banner and added it to the bottom of the circle cut out.
For finishing touches I went over the hippo eyes with black glaze pen and when then dried I gave it a white gel pen highlight. I added glossy accents to the hippos teeth and feet. I gave the bubbles a little unicorn Stickles for fun and then finished things off with a scattering of Trinity Stamps seashore confetti mix.
