Stampin’ Up! Hippo Happiness Unicorn Card

Are you ready to slay the week ahead?

I am – give me what ya got! Ha!
For Stampin’ Up!, I am working on some very exciting things behind the scenes.
And personally, I am getting a new kitchen and bathroom flooring.

You may never see the inside of my house but this is VERY exciting!!!!!!

Today’s card starts off with Bermuda Bay cardstock.

I then cut 3/4″ strips of Bermuda Bay, Mango Melody, and Melon Mambo cardstock to adhere across a panel of Basic White cardstock, which I then matted on another panel of Basic White cardstock.

I then used the Hippo & Friends Dies to cut out a label from Basic White cardstock. On it I stamped the stars from the Hippo Happiness Stamp Set in Mango Melody ink and the sentiment in Memento Black ink.

Lastly, I stamped the unicorn in Melon Mambo ink, stamping off first for the “full” body image. I stamped the eyes and nose in Memento Black ink, cutting it out with the coordinating Hippo & Friends Dies.

Stampin’ Up! Hippo Happiness Birthday Card

Hello from Peru!!

For those wondering, we arrived safe and well to Peru where we’re enjoying time with family and warmer days!

I still plan on sharing with you lots of projects with you while I’m away and business as usual, so if you have any questions, need anything, or if I can be of any help, please don’t hesitate.

Today’s card starts off with Magenta Madness cardstock, which I layered with a Magenta Madness pattern from the 2020-2022 In Color Designer Series Paper.

I next created the cutest hippo from the Hippo Happiness Stamp Set using Smoky Slate ink (stamping off for the ligher shade). I stamped the eyes, nose, and mouth in Memento Black ink and the bow and balloon in Magenta Madness ink. I cut everything out using the Hippo & Friends Dies.

I used the Hippo & Friends Dies to cut out two layering pieces, one from Whisper White cardstock and the larger from Coastal Cabana cardstock. On the Whisper White layer, I stamped the sentiment from the Hippo Happiness Stamp Set in Magenta Madness ink and the balloon string in Memento Black ink.

The Hippo & Friends Dies come with this really cool die that cuts out a piece so you can weave through ribbon. I used it with the Coastal Cabana layer.

Next I matted a panel of Whisper White cardstock on Whisper White cardstock. I wound some Coastal Cabana ribbon around it (and through the Coastal Cabana layer) and secured it with white twine. To get this white twine, I separated the black and white twine from the Playful Pets Trim.

IMPORTANT UPDATE ABOUT WHISPER WHITE PRODUCT

Stampin’ Up! is sad to announce that the supplier’s mill producing our Whisper White cardstock has permanently closed due to impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, Stampin’ Up! wasn’t given much notice on this closure. This means that the technology unique to this particular supplier is now unavailable to us and we can no longer offer our Whisper White cardstock and related products, such as Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes. Please note that this won’t affect any of our other cardstocks, this only affects Whisper White.

Stampin’ Up! has worked tirelessly on trying to find a comparable product and have announced the new color, Basic White.

]Our new Basic White products will become available to purchase as soon as we have them in stock. This means that some Whisper White and Basic White products may be available at the same time. Additionally, due to the nature of sourcing, some Basic White products may not be available before the Whisper White products sell out.

Current Whisper White product is available while supplies last with an order limit of 2 per item per order. For more information and to see a comparison between Whisper White and Basic White, check out the video below.https://www.youtube.com/embed/1adZzbiGCwQ?version=3&rel=1&showsearch=0&showinfo=1&iv_load_policy=1&fs=1&hl=en&autohide=2&wmode=transparent
