General Cards, Hippest Hippo

Hippest Hippos – Splish Splash!

I am still playing this week with the Hippest Hippos Stamp Set and coordinating  Hippo Dies.  Let me just say that it’s been fun to see what I can do with these fun hippos.  Today’s card is probably something that most everyone wants to do if they don’t have access to a pool in these hot days of summer…..fill up a tub and hop in!


 And you might as well grab your snorkeling gear for a little extra fun!  Here’s a quick view of the  Hippest Hippo stamp set, Hippo Dies and the bright and colorful Butterfly Kisses Designer Series Paper that I used:

I also embossed the Basic White cardstock piece on the front of the card using the Splatter Embossing Folder because it looks like water splashes.  This embossing folder is part of a pair of smaller embossing folders, they measure just 3 3/8″ x 6 1/4″ and fit in the Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. 

Stripes & Splatters Embossing Folder

The embossing folder is only 3 3/8″ wide, so it is smaller than the 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Basic White cardstock that I used, so I embossed the right side of the cardstock and covered up the portion of the cardstock that was not embossed with a 1 1/2″ x 5 1/4″ piece of the Butterfly Kisses Designer Series Paper.
