My Hippie Hippo 2.0


Last month I created a card combining Hippest Hippo from Sale-a-bration with Spiral Dye, and I loved it so much I did it again!

MauiStamper Stampin' Up! Hippest Hippos Spiral Dye DIY handmade card
  • Stamps: Hippest Hippos, Spiral Dye
  • Color Palette: Melon Mambo, Tahitian Tide, Parakeet Party, Gray Granite, Basic White
  • Accessories: Big Boss, Hippo Dies, Stylish Shapes Dies, Stamparatus, Blending Brush, Stampin’ Blends, Metallic Woven Ribbon,Take Your Pick tool, Stampin’ Dimensionals

I used the Stamparatus with that big Spiral Dye stamp. It helps me position the image straight on the card stock, and it’s easier to thoroughly press on all parts of the stamp. If it doesn’t cover perfectly, the Stamparatus lets me stamp again in the exact same spot! Love it.

I only used 3 colors this time instead of the 4 I used in the First Version. It looks like there’s a little Gorgeous Grape in there, but that’s just the wonder of color blending: Pink + Blue = Purple!

I chose a different hippo and another greeting, but the part I love best is the Metallic Woven Ribbon. I hardly ever use it as a ribbon! In this case I cut a few inches of Sweet Sorbet and Parakeet Party and tied a knot in the center. Using the Take Your Pick tool, I pulled the threads out and then tucked the knot under the hippo. Instant fringe!

Either the Hippest Hippo stamps or the Hippo dies can be your bonus when you spend $50 usd in the Online Store. Spend $100 and you can have them both! But hurry, all Sale-a-bration options are while supplies last.
