You Are Awesome Hippo

April 12, 2016

Hi there,

it's Tanja here for you and I would like to show you the creation of this fun masculine card step by step:

  • stamp the adorable hippo from the Gerda Steiner Designs Hippo in Disguise stamp set with Memento (Tuxedo Black) and color the image with Delta and Touch Twin Brush Markers
  • add Wink of Stella Silver Glitter to his belt buckleĀ 
  • I stamped a little "F" into the buckle as well because I created the card for my son Finn
  • create a background on white cardstock using the same purple markers and the Distress Marker Spritzer
  • stamp the first part of the sentiment from the Gerda Steiner Designs Happy Hoppy stamp set with Memento (Tuxedo Black) onto a little strip of cardstock colored with a purple marker
  • add a dark purple strip underneath and to the left side of the card
  • continue the stitching on the left side of the sentiment strips
  • stamp the second part of the sentiment from the same stamp set with the same black ink for the hippo to stand on
  • add some 4mm and 6mm purple sequins as final embellishments

I hope you got inspired.

Yours,

Ā
