Happy July 1st! It is a big day! The 2022 July-December Mini Catalog is now live AND so is the 2022 July-August Sale-A-Bration. If you do not have these catalogs and want them, please let me know.
One of the cutest Sale-A-Bration choices is the Hippest Hippos. What that means is during Sale-A-Bration (Juy-August )with a qualifying purchase ($50 in the US) you can choose to receive the Hippest Hippos stamp set. Another Sale-A-Bration choice is the coordinating Hippo Dies. Yes you can get the Hippo dies ( 19 dies!) free with a qualifying purchase ($50 in the US).
Here I paired the sweet hippo with the Dots and Spots die. This is a standalone die and I am currently obsessed with it. I used it HERE, on another sample using the Hippest Hippos stamp set and dies. I also used the Sending Smiles bundle for the sentiments. I am so happy to have the large Sending sentiment and pairing it with lots of smaller sentiments. The scattered Melon Mambo flowers were cut using a die from the Sending dies.
Stamping Tip: I like to stamp the hippos on Smoky Slate CS. This way I do not have to color in her cheeks or chest. I use the Smoky Slate Blends to color around her face and body. I also used the light Flirty Flamingo Stampin' Blends to give her a manicure and pedicure.
The tiny flower behind the hippo's ear is a die in the Hippo Dies set. It is just the perfect size! I used lots of the smallest sized Rhinestones for the centers of the flowers.
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to let me know if would like a copy of the 2022 July-Dec Mini catalog and/or 2022 July-August Sale-A-Bration catalog,
