CTC377 – Hello Hippest Hippos

Well, it’s that time of the week again and time for yet another CASEing the Catty blog hop. I wasn’t sure if I was going to make it this week or not as I started making my card on Wednesday morning and just after I started I got up and injured my back. It was painful to walk, sit or bend etc so I had to leave the card for a few days but managed to get back to it and finish it off in time.

In line with the start of the July – December 2022 Mini Catalogue, the July – August Sale-a-bration catalogue also started. Sale-a-bration is always a great time to stock up on some of your basic supplies or get products from the new catalogue as for every $90 you spend (excluding shipping) you can get a freebie from the Sale-a-bration Catalogue. And who doesn’t like freebies, right? There are some items that are free with a $180 spend also. So to showcase the start of Sale-a-bration, this week we are caseing the SAB catalogue. I decided to use the Hippest Hippos stamp set & coordinating Hippos Dies and used the card in the top left of the image below as my inspiration. Aren’t the hippos just the cutest?

I started with a Basic White card base and used a mask to cover the circle that would be the sun. I used the Blending Brushes with Balmy Blue ink for the sky, and then masked the negative and used So Saffron for the sun. The hippos were stamped from the Hippest Hippos stamp set and coloured with Blends™ before being cut out with the Hippos Dies. I then cut out the boat, sunglasses, snorkel & mask, along with the waves. There are even more accessories to dress up your hippos with in the die set. I decided to rip the edges of the Crumb Cake card stock to give the sand a bit more texture and finished it off with the sentiment which comes from the Peaceful Moments stamp set.

Next up we have Peta showcasing the SAB catalogue. Keep hopping around to get some inspiration and pick which are your favourites that you want to get for free during Sale-a-bration.

Remember, even if you don’t have any of the goodies from the Sale-a-bration catalogue yet, you can still join in the challenge. Just take your inspiration from one of the projects in the catalogue and use whatever products you have on hand. Don’t forget to share a photo of your creation on our Facebook page.

Until next time, happy stamping
