Baby Hippo



I am constantly making baby cards, so be happy I don't show them all to you! *lol* I do like to share my favorite ones and this is one of them. I used the super cute set, Baby Blessings from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps and decided to paper piece this sweet hippo. I carefully positioned her so that the flowers on the paper would end up where I wanted and gave her a bit of sparkle with some Stickles dots. I used some more of those tiny brads that I have, love them! They add a lot without being bulky for sending through the mail. Mike's has them on sale so I think I'm going to go pick up a few more packs ;) I hope you have a fun weekend planned. Mine is busy as a dear friend is coming in to town tomorrow and then it's her and my mom's birthday on Sunday! Thanks so much for dropping by!

Supplies:
Stamps: Baby Blessings, Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps
Ink: Versa fine Onyx Black
Tools: Embossing folder, Swiss Dots, Cuttlebug, MS border punch, EK Success photo corner punch, paper piercer
Other: Ribbon, Stickles
