Hello Hippo!!

Hello everyone!!  I popping in today with a cute card I created this weekend! I had some time to sit and color with my daughter.


This image from Gerda Steiner Designs!!  It’s the Hippo with Butterfly digital image.  Her hippos are super cute.  I have them all!!  I just need more time to color.

So which color shirt do you like?  I went with the orange one.  It just looks so cute on that hippo.

Take a look at my card:

Hello Hippo

Oh, look how cute that hippo looks!!  He tickles me!!

Wait before I continue, did you see my new watermark for my pictures!!!  I’m excited about it.  My good friend Kristina Beagle from Live Love Laugh Scrap created it for me.  Oh man, can I say she made my day yesterday!! Thanks you so much Kristina!!  Go and check her out, she is a fabulous card maker!

Now if you’ve been following me lately, you know that I have a love for shaker cards because of my new Fuse tool.  I can make shaker cards all day long.

This card was pretty easy to make as well.

1. I used Mama Elephant Femme Frames (which I can’t find as a stand along die anymore, I see them under the Basic Set) to cut out to frames from the Simon Says Stamp June 2015 card kit.

2. I used Mama Elephant Sew Fancy Circle die to cut a circle in the yellow pattern paper.

3. I used my We R Memory Keepers Fuse tool and the plastic slips to created a shaker pocket.

4. I added Pretty Pink Posh 4mm and 6mm sparkling clear sequins to the shaker pocket and used the fuse tool to seal it shut.

5. I adhered the shaker packet to the back of the yellow pattern paper with adhesive.

6. I attached that top panel to the orange panel with foam tape.

7. I attached the entire panel to the card base with adhesive.

8. I used Copic markers to color my hippo.

Y17, Y38, T0, T1, T2, B000

9. I used Top Dog Dies Hello Die to cut 2 hello’s for my sentiment. I adhered the two pieces together then attached it to the card front.

And there you have it!!  My cute hippo card.  Nothing to it!

Gerda Steiner Designs is have a Design Team Call and I figured why not put my name in the pot!
