Today's card features one of my all time favorite stamp sets: Stampin' Up Hippo Happiness. I used the sketch from this weeks Freshly Made Sketches Challenge for inspiration.
I started with a panel of Pool Party card stock that I dry embossed with Stampin' Up Tasteful Texture Embossing Folder. I adhered a piece of Stampin' Up Pattern Party DSP (free with qualifying order) to the embossed panel in a diagonal fashion. I trimmed the excess DSP with my paper snips.I inked up Stampin' Up Hippo Happiness Stamp Set with Blushing Briday, Polished Pink, So Saffron, Bumblebee, Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay ink. I stamped the faces with Mementos Tuxedo Black ink. I die cut each image with Stampin' Up Hippo and Friends Die Set. I stamped the sentiment from Stampin' Up Timeless Tulips Stamp Set with Coastal Cabana ink on a strip of Basic White card stock. I punched the end off with Stampin' Up Lovely Labels Pick a Punch. I adhered the sentiment strip to the card front with liquid adhesive. I adhered the die cuts to the front with Stampin' Dimensionals. The inside is a panel of Basic White card stock that I lined up on my Stamparatus. I stamped the sentiment with Coastal Cabana ink. I moved the panel up 1/4" and stamped it again without inking the stamp up. I then moved the panel up one more time.
