Oh, isn’t this little hippo just adorable? And, I pulled out my Stampin’ Up! THE Right Triangle Bundle to jazz up the corners! All that stitching everywhere….I love it!
The Hippo and Friends Dies in the bundle are amazing with the all the layering dies but being bundled with the Hippo Happiness stamp set is an added bonus since the cute little hippo, unicorn, butterfly and lamb are also in the Die Set! And the punny sentiments are just so sweet.
I did add some Gorgeous Grape Rhinestones from some Retired Noble Peacock Rhinestones but you can make your own by coloring them with Stampin’ Blends. Be sure to color them with the blunt end, not the brush end, so you do not fray the brush end. I stamped his eyes, snout, and smile with Memento Black ink to stand out against the dark Gorgeous Grape ink.
Thanks for buzzing by, friends…
What a pretty card! I love Hippo Happiness and The Right Triangle, but where did you use the All Dressed Up?
A little tip from me to you and please share: I’ve found that adding a tiny tip of our Wink of Stella to the eyes of animals makes them look alive.
Thank you for this gorgeous card! I needed inspiration for next month’s birthday of a grandson and you gave it to me!
