Create a Cute Hippo Card Using Hippest Hippos Stamp Set

The last few years Stampin' Up! has included some cute animal stamps in the Sale-A-Bration catalogue and this year is no different! This blog post shares how you can create a cute hippo card using the Hippest Hippos stamp set and how you can earn it for free. 
The hippo looked like it needed a fun and bright background to go along with the flower dies. A few pieces of paper from the Hues of Happiness designer series paper works so well with the flower dies. Do you spy the stitched circle and banner? They're found in the Stylish Shapes dies and I just love the stitching. It was hard to chose which hippo to put on this card but this one looks like they're running towards the flowers! The Hippo dies coordinate so well with the Hippest Hippos stamp set. Each of the 3 hippos have dies to save you from having to fussy cut around each one. Also in the die set is some fun summer themed accesories for the hippos! Scroll down to see what's included and how you can order.

Create Birthday Cards With Light the Candles Card Kit

Would you like to have 8 birthday cards on hand ready to send or hand deliver? Create birthday cards with the Light the Candles card kit! It includes everything you need, including the clear block and ink spot. 
These are the cards you can make using the stamps, ink and pieces that are included in the kit. 
Can you see the sparkly cake behind the white overlay? I love sparkle when I don't have to spill glitter everywhere! What about you? Do you like to add glitter to your projects? 

What if you are a new stamper? The kits includes a clear stamping block and Night of Navy ink spot along with the die cuts, card bases, envelopes, exclusive stamp set and all the pieces needed to complete the cards. 

There are 4 items I would suggest for every crafter to have: 
  1. Simply Shammy, just add water to clean your stamps.
  2. Paper Snips are nice and sharp to cut ribbon.
  3. Bone Folder to made your folds nice and crisp.
  4. Multipurpose Liquid Glue, although the kit includes adhesive this is my favourite instead of the little adhesive dots that are in the kit.

Create Birthday Cards With Light the Candles Card Kit


If you add a few extra supplies to the kit you can make some extra special cards by adding a shaker piece. Make sure to watch the video above to see how it's done. 
It's hard to see in the above photo but there is a clear envelope behind the white candle layer. Before gluing the edges I added some Sparkle & Shine Sequins Assortment to the clear envelope. 

 
Now is the time to purchase 2 of these cute Light the Candles Card Kits to create a total of 16 cards (8 in each kit) and have some fun cards to send to celebrate those birthdays that seem to pop onto the calendar! Or buy one Light the Candles and choose the Christmas Whimsy card kit as well. The 2nd kit is one I shared on Tue so make sure to view the blog post here or over on YouTube!

More Ideas for the Christmas Whimsy Card Kit

A kit is a fun way to start stamping or to expand your supplies if you are a new stamper. Everything included in one fun box! You then have an ink spot and stamp set to reuse on a different project. This blog post included more ideas for the Christmas Whimsy Card Kit for you to see what you can make using just the kit's contents but also an extra card version that needs just a few other products to create. 
These are the cards you can make with the Christmas Whimsy Card Kit. I know, you must be thinking, Amanda it's the end of June I can't think about Christmas?? Did you know that Christmas is less than 6 months away as of a few days ago? I'm not sure where the last 6 months went and how July starts on Friday. I'm sure the next 6 months will fly by and I'll thank myself in November when I have these cards ready to send with seasons greetings to friends and family. 
These elves are so cute and I love the bright Poppy Parade with the Night of Navy. The light string on the tree is gold and the the kit includes gold stickers to put on the elf die cut! These kits will inspire your creativity and introduce you to stamping. The kits contain everything you need to create the projects. 

What if you are a new stamper? The kits includes a clear stamping block and Night of Navy ink spot along with the die cuts, card bases, envelopes, exclusive stamp set and all the pieces needed to complete the cards. 

There are 4 items I would suggest for every crafter to have: 
  1. Simply Shammy, just add water to clean your stamps.
  2. Paper Snips are nice and sharp to cut ribbon.
  3. Bone Folder to made your folds nice and crisp.
  4. Multipurpose Liquid Glue, although the kit includes adhesive this is my favourite instead of the little adhesive dots that are in the kit.

Christmas Cards using the Christmas Whimsy Card Kit

Near the end of the video I started to create an alternative card and then directed people to pop over here to my blog to see the finished project. Adding a few extra items to the kit can extend how many cards you can create with them. 
There are 3 items I added: the Poppy Parade card base, a stripe of Night of Navy cardstock and a new product from the Jul-Dec Mini Catalogue, the Iridescent Trim. The links for these products are just below if you wanted to add it to your order. Also listed is a package of Basic White Note Cards & Envelopes. Add these to your kit to stretch your kit. Use the Night of Navy ink spot and the exclusive stamp set to decorate the note cards. 

Now is the time to purchase 2 of these cute Christmas Whimsy Card Kits to create a total of 16 cards (8 in each kit) and have a head start on your Christmas cards! Or buy one Christmas Whimsy and choose the Light the Candles card kit as well. The 2nd kit is one I'll show on Thu evening so make sure to check back here or over on YouTube!
