Today's cards were put together using the Hippo Happiness Stamp Set and Hippo and Friends Dies Bundle.  

These cards were created during a Facebook Live crafting session and you can watch the replay HERE

The first card was put together using a Pool Party coloured card base; I have used the largest die in the Hippo and Friends Dies to cut the aperture in the front.  I have added a piece of Whisper White Cardstock measuring 9.5cm x 13.9cm to the inside layer.  

I have used the "Hippo Birthday" sentiment to add some repetitive stamping to a circle that has been cut from the Stitched Shapes Dies and attached to a piece of Highland Heather Designer Series Paper that I have cut with another of the Hippo and Friends Dies.  These have been attached to the inside layer so that it shows through the aperture. 

For the hippos, I have used the Stamparatus stamping platfrom to ensure that my stamping is super acurate and for the base layer, I have added the ink to the stamp using a Sponge Dauber; this is a great way to get a muted tone of the colour you are using.  

The sentiment has been added to a banner of Whisper White and I have added two flower embellishments to finish. 

For the second card, I have used a cardbase cut from So Saffron Cardstock and some So Saffron Designer Series PaperThe die-cut piece of Pool Party is actually the piece that was cut out from the front of the card above (it was too good to waste!)

I have then used one of the other label dies to cut a piece of Whisper White Cardstock, and added the thread dies to cut the holes that I have threaded the ribbon through (so clever!)

The top layer has been stamped with the flower image in So Saffron and I have used the Stamparatus again to create the unicorn (isn't he cute?!)

So pleased with how these cards have come together and it was a great excuse to use the Stamparatus again!  Is this bundle on your wishlist?
