Welcome back to another Inkin’ Krew blog hop! Our very talented team is doing a blog hop featuring Stampin’ Up! products. This month we are all creating projects with a birthday theme and I’m featuring the Hippest Hippos stamp set from the upcoming July-August Sale-a-bration Brochure for my project.
I started by adhering a panel of Crumb Cake DSP from the Neutrals 6″ x 6″ DSP pack to the front of a Crumb Cake card base. Then I cut a panel of So Saffron card stock with one of the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I embossed the die cut panel with the Into The Clouds Embossing Folder and then adhered the embossed panel to a panel of Real Red card stock with Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I cut panels of Pool Party card stock with one of the Scalloped Contours Dies. I adhered the die cuts to the card front with Stampin’ Seal. I stamped the hippo image from the Hippest Hippos stamp set (Sale-a-bration item available July 1) in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on a panel of Basic White card stock and then colored it with Light and Dark Smoky Slate and Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out with the coordinating Hippo Dies (Sale-a-bration item available July 1).
I cut panels of Crumb Cake, Basic Black, Real Red and Silver Foil 12″ x 12″ Specialty Pack with Hippo Dies and Tree Lot Dies (Sale-a-bration item available July 1). I adhered the die cuts with Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the card front. I stamped the sentiment from the This Birthday Piggy stamp set in Real Red ink on a panel of Basic White card stock. I cut the sentiment out with one of the Stylish Shapes Dies and then rolled one end and adhered the rolled paper with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the sentiment with Stampin’ Seal to finish the card front.
I stamped the sentiment and hippo image from the This Birthday Piggy and Hippest Hippos stamp set in Real Red and Tuxedo Black Memento inks on a panel of Basic White card stock. I colored the hippo image with Light and Dark Smoky Slate and Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends Markers to finish the inside of the card.
