Finishing Up Friday – Perfectly Penciled Petal Pink Hippo

This week’s Finishing Up Friday is this cute pink hippo.

It uses Perfectly Penciled DSP, Stylish Shapes Dies, SAB Hippest Hippos Stamp Set with the coordinating Hippo dies, and Petal Pink accents.

Don’t forget there isn’t long to earn SAB items with a qualifying order. You only have until the end of August.

This week, I was able to identify the projects that the pieces were left over from – here and here.

With my colour combination of Petal Pink, Basic Black and Basic White decided for me, all I had to do was colour my pre-stamped and pre-cut hippo.

I chose to use my Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends and coordinate it with the rest of the project.

You have seen me use this card layout many times in the past. First, a sentiment from the Hippest Hippos Stamp Set sits in the top right-hand corner.

Next, a piece of the DSP goes on the bottom, with a length of the Petal Pink Ribbon across the join.

Then, the shapes and hippo are layered together and sit on Dimensionals above the ribbon.

For a finishing touch, some Solid Faceted Gems, also in Petal Pink are dotted around this quick, easy and fun card.

SAB Hippest Hippos Stamp Set & Dies

When your business is called HIPPOFROG Designs, it is only a matter of time before the fabulous new SAB Hippest Hippos Stamp Set and coordinating Hippo Dies make an appearance here.

With the unusually hot weather we have been experiencing here in the UK over the past few days, this hip hippo is keeping very cool!

The background hippo is stamped tone-on tone onto Pool Party.

Using Basic Gray, the main hippo is stamped and cut out using the Hippo Dies. This is one of the three hippest hippos in the stamp set.

Waves, sunglasses and the splash are cut out using the Dies too.

I have coloured the hippo using Watercolor Pencils, then used a Blender Pen to soften any pencil marks.

Watercolour Pencils have also been used on the waves and the dark part of the sunglasses.

The waves and splash are stuck onto the circle cut from the Stylish Shapes Dies. Sunglasses are added to the hippo before it is attached.

A sentiment, also from the Hippest Hippos Stamp Set is then added.

The whole piece is raised up on Dimensionals.

Finally, a few of the new Fine Sparkle Adhesive-Backed Gems from the new July-December Mini Catalogue are added.

SAB is only here for July and August, so be sure to earn your FREE products while stocks last.
