Clearly Besotted Teasers | You're So Cool

Hello there, today starts the countdown for the Clearly Besotted June 2018 release. The DT and guests are teasing you for the next four days, with the release being on the 1st June 2018 at 8pm BST. My card today uses the super cute Cooling off stamp set.

I started off by stamping the three super cute hippos from the set on to white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I coloured them with Copic Markers (the colours used are listed below the supplies section) and then fussy cut out with scissors (there will be coordinating dies available). These were then set aside for me to work on the card base. I took a panel of white cardstock and cut three squares from it using the SSS Stitched Squares dies. I then stamped the sentiment on to the panel with black ink.
I took an A2 white card base and masked off the where the square openings are to add some ink blending. I used Squeezed Lemonade and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide inks and a blending tool to add some colour behind the windows. The window panel was then added on top with foam tape. To finish off, I added black glaze pen to their eyes to help them pop.
