Hippo Christmas

Hello there, I am back today to share a card using the new Hippo Christmas stamp set from Clearly Besotted. This is the card that I shared a peek of in my release video. I love these cute hippos!

I started off by stamping the hippo on to white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I then coloured him using Copic Markers (the colours I used are listed below the supplies section) and fussy cut him out (but there are dies available). I then took an A2 white card base and masked off the bottom. I blended Distress Oxide Inks on to the top. I used Broken China, Faded Jeans and Black Soot to create a night sky. I then splattered Copic Opaque White on top for some snow and set aside to dry.
I took the sentiment from the set and stamped this on to black cardstock with Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat embossed. This was then cut in to a strip. I die cut a snow bank from white cardstock using the Mama Elephant Landscape Trio die and then added this to the bottom of the ink blending on the card with foam tape. The hippo and sentiment were also added with foam tape. To finish off, I added White Blizzard Nuvo Drops to the hat and present.
