Let’s make a splash with this adorable hippo from the Hippest Hippos stamp set in the Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-Bration brochure!! Isn’t he just the cutest, especially paired with the coordinating Hippo dies!! Each one of these (stamp set and dies) are free gift choices with your $50 online order! CLICK HERE to see them!
I die cut the tub out of In Color Glimmer paper and then added a bit of shading with my Stampin’ Blends markers… super easy and a fun touch!
Using the “make a splash” greeting from the Sunny Splash set was Tammy’s idea and it worked perfectly on this card! I used my Orchid Oasis Stampin’ Write marker to individually ink each word to stamp on the die cut tag.

Tip! after stamping and coloring the hippo with Stampin’ Blends markers, use a craft or xacto knife and cut around the hoof. Then tuck the die cut tub under that slit and it looks like his hoof is outside the tub!
Using the Rays of Light background stamp in the background was the perfect touch for this card to keep it bright and cheery!!
