Hippo in Wonderland


“Hippo, whoooo are youuuuu?” said the Caterpillar (apologies to Lewis Carroll). There’s no caterpillar here, but that winking Hippo is pretty sassy all the same!

  • Stamps: Hippest Hippo, Kindest Gnomes, Paradise Palms
  • Color Palette: Basic White, Memento Black, Pale Papaya, Pool Party, Poppy Parade, Granny Apple Green, Garden Green, Naturals 200, 400 & 600
  • Accessories: Big/Mini Boss, Hippos dies, Storybook Gnomes DSP, Stampin’ Blends, Pool Party Sheer Ribbon, Stampin’ Dimensionals

I experimented with a lot of Hippo colors, but ultimately decided that my card looked best if the Hippo shared the same colors as the wooden door on the mushroom. I used our new Naturals line of Stampin’ Blends to color them both.

The Storybook Gnomes DSP is a real find! Great colors, great images, and it really makes a card pop. It also helped direct my color choices for this card, and I don’t think I would have used Pale Papaya without that inspiration.

I used a teeny splash of pool party on this Hippo’s eyes and in the window panes. I considered putting a little smooch on that kisser, but decided that would just be lipstick on a…well, you know.
