Good morning and welcome to another edition of Cards and Creations by Lori McBride. My name is Lori McBride and I’m a Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrator. Today, I’d like to share with you two cards that I designed and created using the *NEW* Hippo Happiness Bundle with these his and hers cards featuring the *NEW* 2020-2021 In Colors.
For those who know me and know me well, I absolutely love the hippopotamus. From the time I was a little kid my absolute favorite part of visiting any zoo was seeing the hippos. I especially love that their vegetarians but will fiercely mess you up if you mess with their offspring. Kind of like…well…me.
I started off with the hippopotamus. It took me a little bit of time to figure out the color combination but finally found success in Crumb Cake and Smoky Slate Inks. I stamped their little faces in Momento Black and then die cut them using the Hippo and Friends Dies. Aren’t they just the cutest little stinkers ever?!
My Cardbase is our standard A2 measuring 4 1/4″×5 1/2″. The DSP is the *NEW* 2020-2022 In Color DSP measuring 2 1/2″. I used the *NEW* In Color Cardstock to die cut the labels and balloons from the Hippo and Friends Dies and Whisper White Cardstock to die cut the balloon streamers.
I adhered everything down with our *NEW* Stampin’ Seal, Mini Glue Dots, Stampin’ Diminsionals and Mini Stampin’ Diminsionals.
The “hip-hippo-horray” sentiment was stamped in the *NEW* Bumblebee Ink.
For the final touches, I added the *NEW* 2020-2022 Enamel Dots and *NEW* Just Jade In Color Ribbon.
This card came out so precious that I couldn’t help but to make ones for the little girls in my life too!!
Thank you so much for joining and reading along with me today. I hope you’ll join me again soon. Until then, Happy Stampin’ Everyone!
