Skipping Stones Design New Release Day 2


Hi there!  We're back with Day 2 of celebrating the newest release from Skipping Stones Design.  As I mentioned yesterday, be sure to hop along and check out all the fantastic inspiration and leave comments as Heather (owner of SSD) will be giving away the entire release to a randomly drawn commenter!

You should have arrived here from the Skipping Stones Design blog but if you got lost along the way here's the full list of blogs so you're sure not to miss anything:  


Today's card is made with the Hippo Birthday set.  How cute are these critters??  There are some adorable sheep in this set too along with plenty of punny sentiments.  I went for a masculine feel with this card.  I paper pieced the bird and hippo with solid colour cardstock and grounded them with a strip of patterned paper.  There's lots of foam tape action going on here.  Each animal is popped up on foam tape and their heads are also popped up separately which gives lots of fun dimension to the card.  

Now it's time to hop along to Martha Lucia's blog and don't forget to leave comments for a chance to win!  

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Pink Pirouette, Pumpkin Pie, Baja Breeze, Sahara Sand, Smokey Slate, Basic Grey) Stampin' Up
Patterned Paper:  (Stripes from Let's Polka, Mon Amie) Lawn Fawn
Stamps:  (All from Hippo Birthday) Skipping Stones Design
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Dies:  (Word Bubbles) Paper Smooches

With sheep in the set, you could use one of my favorite birthday greetings: hippo, birdy, two ewes! Oh heck... your card is perfect and perfectly darling just the way you've made it!
