Blushing Hippo

This is my final card for this months Creative Crew challenge.
CCREW0711DF, CreativeCrew, SUO or SUM -- DSP/Color Focus: Show us what you can do with the In Colors! You can use other colors, but In Colors should be the main focus of your project.


This is another Triangle Tri-fold card but this time I used the cute hippo from Pun Fun.  I used dazzling diamonds on the hippo’s bow and balloon and paper pieced her using blushing bride and pear pizzazz card stock.

Ingredients :
Stamps : Pun Fun
Card : pear pizzazz, blushing bride, white, in colour dsp stack
Ink : stazon, pip, old olive
Other : rhinestones, white taffeta ribbon, dazzling diamonds, 2 way glue, scallop trim border punch, big shot, polka dot embossing folder

Unfortunately I must have knocked the little rhinestone when I took the photo and hadn’t realised, so the card looks a bit “off”.  I did fix it before giving it to one of my daughter’s friends for her birthday though and she thought it was very cute!



  1. Your little pink hippo is adorable Kathy. Love that you've gone for a tri-fold card as that ribbon and lovely bow are the perfect finishing touch.

  2. Hi Kathy just popping in to say Thank you for my Happy Mail. I love this sort of mail. hehe.
