Isn't this little guy adorable? Holding a flower and winking. The Hippest Hippo set is a Sale-A-Bration offer - FREE with any $50 purchase. Sale A Bration ends August 31, 2022. If you have a larger wish list you can also earn the matching Hippo Dies FREE with a $50 purchase. Supplies are available while they last - two choices have already sold old - the Tree Lot Dies and the Pool Party Cards & Envelopes.
But not to worry because StampinUp added some items from the Annual Catalog that you can earn FREE with a $50 or $100 order if you need more options. See the list below:
So, back to my Hippo card, I used the Daffodil Delight card base, with a panel of Silver & Gold DSP (another Sale-A-Bration option!) and backed most of my layers with Basic Black cardstock. The Hippo was colored using StampinBlends and then fussy cut. The dies I used were from the Scalloped Contours Die Set (the large rainbow-scalloped border is from the retired Brilliant Rainbows Die Set)
My flower accent was punched from Daffodil Delight Cardstock using the Flowers & Leaves punch (twice) and I - once again - used my favorite new item - the Pearlized Enamel Effects for the center of my flower. For the sentiment I stamped it twice, once in Daffodil Delight, then I over stamped it in Basic Gray for a fun effect.
Last touch was an extra flower punch on the inside along with the WOO HOO! from another Sale A Bration option - the Amazing Phrazing Stamp Set (FREE with $100 purchase).
All in all I think it's a pretty cute card :-D
I will link to the items I used below (excluding the retired rainbow dies).
Thanks so much for stopping by!
