It’s day two of the teasers for the Clearly Besotted release. You may remember a few months ago, the adorable Cooling Off stamp set. Well for those of you that fell in love, there is another fun set with these oh-so-sweet hippos!
This set is called Hello Cupcake, it is a mini set and has three hippo images plus some little extra embellishment images. My personal favourite is the hippo climbing on top of the frosting!
I stamped all three images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Copic friendly cardstock and coloured them with Copics (numbers listed below). I then fussy cut them out leaving a little white trim. There will be coordinating dies available for this set. Next I thought I would add a few little accessories, so I stamped and coloured the hat from Cooling Off, the balloon from All In Onesie Easter and the little flower from Happy Hula.
To make the rest of the card, I added some Simon Says Stamp Fog cardstock to an A2 top folding base card. I then die cut the MFT snow drifts frame twice from Neenah cardstock. I used wet adhesive to glue the two frames together and also to adhere it to the fog panel. I pieced in the white sections at the bottom again using wet adhesive. Before inserting the final white bottom piece, I stamped the greeting from Hello Cupcake, using Versafine Onyx Black Ink.
Foam tape was added to the backs of the hippos before placing them over the top of the die cut frame. Black glaze pen was added to their eyes along with some Nuvo Aqua shimmer pen to the hat and flower.
To finish the card off, I added some Copic Spica pen details to the frosting and the balloon – this is really pretty in real life as it is so sparkly but sadly you can’t see it in the photos. The Spica pen colours are also listed below. I also popped a few sequins on for some extra sparkle.
That finishes today’s card but I will be back tomorrow with another teaser for you. In the meantime, it would be lovely if you could hop over to visit the rest of the lovely and talented DT – Stephanie, Keren and Michelle and see what they have in store for you today.
