Hippo in disguise - Happy birthday - Larissa

June 06, 2018


Hi everyone, I am Larissa from Car-d-elicious.


Today I made a card with the stampset Hippo in disguise from Gerda Steiner designs. This is a really clever designed stampset. You start of with stamping the hippo with the cape and then there are couple of small stamps in the set that you can use to turn your hippo into a superhero or in a dracula. Really awesome! For my card from today I wanted my hippo to be a superhero. I have coloured the image with my Polychromos pencils and the black glaze pen and then I have fussy cut the image. From a piece of white cardstock I have die-cut a rectangle with the Crea-nest-lies XXL 52 from Crealies and then I have die-cut a circle out of the rectangle with the Crea-nest-lies XXL 49 from Crealies. I have die-cut a larger rectangle from purple design paper from the Gingham linen rainbow petite prints from Doodlebug with the Crea-nest-lies XXL 44 from Crealies. I adhered the white rectangle on top of the purple design paper with foamtape and then I adhered them both on a white card. I added the image with foamtape on the card. From yellow cardstock I have die-cut a couple of stars with the Lots of stars creative cuts from Mama elephant and I placed those on the card. The sentiment is from the set Happy hoppy from Gerda Steiner designs

Take a look:
I used a cute little mouse from Smell like Christmas stamp set and I stamped it out using Memento tuxido black ink. Then, I colored the image in using alcohol markers. I decided to use traditional Christmas colors so I colored his clothes in red and green.
