Hi everyone! Thanks for checking out Day 3 of the blog hop for LDRS Creative. I’m sharing a card using one of the sets showcased at Creativation, Hippo Hooray. Similar to Day 1, this set has an interactive image that moves with a brad.
For today’s card, I used a variety of the images. I stamped them out using Raven ink, colored them with alcohol markers, and fussy cut them out. This set doesn’t come with coordinating die because of the nature of the interactive element… It would look odd with the white border a die leaves.
I wanted to create a simple scene for this since I’m using a few images. I just drew in the stage area and used Stamping Mask paper so I could use distress inks to color it quickly. For the stands, I drew in a simple pattern mirroring the stand the little bird is standing on. I also stamped the little star that is in the set to give it a little more decoration.
After the background is colored in, I play with the images deciding where they should go. I want to fit everyone in so I add the dancing hippo to a tightrope.
For the hippo, I trim off the left arm and right leg replacing it with the full arm/leg image included in the set. I picked out a blue flower brad so it looks like she’s wearing a little belt with a flower buckle.
To finish off this card, I stamped the Hip Hippo Hooray sentiment in the middle of the card. Additionally, I trimmed the card panel by a quarter of an inch so it would have a white border around the panel.
This dancing hippo is adorable, don’t you think? If you want a visual of how it works, check out my instagram for a short clip. Thanks for stopping by for this LDRS Creative blog hop! Hope you’ve enjoyed all the inspiration.
