Miss You Hippo - Pretty Pink Posh June Release Blog Hop

 Good morning! I'm excited today to be hopping along for day 1 of a 3 day blog hop to celebrate the BRAND NEW June Release from Pretty Pink Posh (also available in a bundle HERE if you just want it all!)! There is such a fun mix of products in this release! Keep reading for more info, details on my card I'm sharing today, AND of course, some giveaway info at the bottom as well!


Here is a look at the entire JUNE release bundle - so many fun goodies! You can find it HERE:


I had fun playing with one of the adorable new stamp sets, a sentiment die, and a fun new border die to create this card!


I started off by ink blending the top background using Picked Raspberry and Carved Pumpkin distress inks. I used Post it Tape to mask and create the rays in the background and blended extra of the same Carved Pumpkin over itself to make it a shade darker. I also added some white paint splatters for texture.


Next, I die cut the waves with the new Stitched Waves die set in 3 shades of Spellbinders cardstock. I layered them up, placing the first one on foam tape on the cardbase, and just using adhesive tape for the other layers, but curling up the edges of the waves to enhance that texture.


I colored up that adorable hippo from the Summer Fun stamp set, and tucked him in between some of the waves, attaching him with foam adhesive so he looked like he really was floating on the waves!


Finished off with a sentiment die cut in white using the brand new Miss You Script Die - so nice and big, and perfect for this card. I glued it directly on the card, but tucked the bottom of the "y" over the top of the waves for fun.


GIVEAWAY INFO:
Now the fun part - there are a total of 3 $25 Gift Certificates up for grabs - 1 for each day of the hop!!! Winners will be picked randomly along the blog hop.

  16. Hi,
    I commented on IG already but will also leave a message here. This hippo is ab-so-stinkin'-lutely adoreable. I love the waves (already ordered that die) and would love to win a prize so that I could buy the summer animals set that includes this hippo. Your work is always something to which I aspire, Heather. You are at the top of your game and truly a leader in your industry.
