It’s a Hippo, It’s a Cow

When I first saw the Sale-a-Bration products I didn’t much care for the Hippos but they quickly became a favorite. And then when I saw other demonstrators turning them into cows I was hooked.


For this card I stamped one of the hippps on white card stock and colored with Blends. To create the bubbles on the black cardstock I traced different sized circular items with a white gel pen. I also drew in some lines inside the circles. Then using blue and pink Blends I colored over just portions of the white lines. This gives the appearance of the iridescent colors seen in bubbles. I added some Opal Round embellishments which look like bubbles. The green cardstock is the new In Color Parakeet Party. The sentiment is from the stamp set Charming Sentiments which is an all occasion assortment and has coordinating dies that cut right around the words. The dies include some extra fun cut outs.


Again I used Parakeet Party for this card with the DSP simulating grass. It’s so easy to turn those hippos into cows. I used a black Blends marker to color in the spots and Petal Pink Blends for the faces and stomachs.


The extra dies for the goggles, scuba gear, sunglasses and umbrella give the hippos so much personality.

There are just a few weeks left of Sale-a-Bration. If you love the hippos too you can get it free with a qualifying order.

True, right! The battery packages are the worst to try to get open.
