My Hippie Hippo


Can you say GROOOOVY??? As soon as I started stamping the Hippo (2202 v2 Sale-a-bration) I saw this card in my mind, and it turned out EXACTLY as I imagined it. How often does that happen??

  • Stamps: Hippest Hippos (Sale-a-bration 2022 v2), Spiral Dye
  • Color Palette: Basic White, Highland Heather, Parakeet Party, Tahitian Tide, Daffodil Delight, Memento Black
  • Accessories: Big/Baby Boss, Hippo dies, Fine Sparkle Adhesive Backed Gems, Stylish Shapes, Stampin’ Blends, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Daubers, Wink of Stella

Do you see that flag? I got crafty with the Stylish Shapes dies. I stamped the sentiment and cut it out with the small banner, then used the larger one to cut off one end:

Ooooo, I was feelin’ groooovy 🎶 (da da da dah dah dah da, feelin’ groovy)

I wanted this purple hippo to have a little pizazz, and it was Wink of Stella to the rescue. Well, that and Parakeet Party nails. The little hearts are some of the accessories that come with the Hippos dies, and trust me, you will be reaching for those dies again and again with all of their fun coordinating shapes.

I used daubers to ink up the Spiral Dye stamp (see what they did there?) and I can’t wait to do this again with another set of colors. When I showed this card to my Maui Stamper team, they all said I needed to make a video – so stay tuned, I may just have a YouTube debut!
