Hippest Hippo U Fold Window card

Today’s fancy fold card is a ‘U Fold Window’ style card using the Sale•a•bration items, Hippest Hippo stamp set (#159921), Hippo dies (#159928) and Silver & Gold Specialty Designer Series Paper (#159941). Each of these items can be earned free with any $90+ product order. Select all 3 items with a $270 product order during Sale•a•bration (now through to 31 August 2022)!

I adore the Lights Aglow Specialty Designer Series Paper and this particular piece reminded me of those beautiful curtains at the theatre! I also added a strip of Cherry Cobbler card at the top opening of the window (Basic Borders dies).

Thick Basic White Card Base: 19.5cm x 10.5cm; score at 2.5cm & 5cm from each end.
Thick Basic White Card Front: 14.5cm x 10.5cm Adhere the DSP before cutting the window (the largest square die from the Stylish Shapes dies).

The Silver & Gold Specialty DSP was cut for the interior with a small piece of the wood grain paper (retired In Good Taste DSP) at the bottom acting as the stage floor for my little ballerina.

Memento Black ink was used to stamp the hippo image and she’s coloured using the Stampin’ Blends Combo Markers; Gray Granite, Melon Mambo, 900/1000 Light Combo.

The hippo is raised with a small strip of window sheet folded into a square and mounted behind. This allows for her to appear in mid-air, and so the card can fold to the right so it folds flat to fit in a standard C6 envelope!

The sentiment is white heat embossed onto a label die cut with one of the Fabulous Frames dies.

Week 20 – Granny Apple Green

Today’s card has a very general, but pretty theme, and could be used for so many different occasions, as there are no sentiments or DSP on it!

My colour combination is Granny Apple Green, Evening Evergreen and Polished Pink. Anyway, enough mumbling on, here is my card!

Count on Me Pierced Blooms for CCBH Granny Apple Green by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021.

The narrow strip at the bottom of the Granny Apple Green Stitched Greenery layer, is some of the ‘darker’ Silver Foil sheet. The bear was stamped in Black Memento ink and coloured using the Crumb Cake & Polished Pink Blends Marker Combo Packs, then fussy cut with Paper Snips.

The Gold Thread wrapped around the card has retired (oops), I was sure it was still available. Anyway, you could use any metallic thread you may have. I added some Wink of Stella to the centres of the larger flowers for more sparkle.

I finished it off with some 2021-2023 In Color Jewels that I adore and almost finished my pack. I might have to add some more to my next order!

I love how the piercing in the background and the Pierced Blooms die cut images go together so well. This card was inspired by Nikki Spencer who used different flowers and colour combination, but I loved the layout!
