Big Picture Book Cards | STAMPtember Blog Party | Simon Says Stamp

Hello Everybody and welcome to STAMPtember Blog Party!
STAMPtember is a month-long celebration at Simon Says Stamp full of contests, prizes, special promotions, and exclusive collaborations with our favourite stamp companies!

If you read to the end of this post, you will find a special sale code banner!
Today I am excited to share with you two cards made with the new Big Picture Book Hippo die combined with the previously released exclusive Simon Says Stamp products. (Please see the full list of supplies at the bottom of the post.)

This steel die is so easy to use and fun to make quick and cheerful cards that I made three cards in one evening. But the third I will share tomorrow, be sure to stop by my blog again.

These two cards I call male and female cards. I die cut Hippo from two pieces of light brown card stock and mixed two parts. The Hippo with a darker nose looks like a guy (unshaved?) for me.
To make this card I stencilled dots through Medium Dots stencil with Distress ink down to a white card note.

Then stamped down the sentiment from Handlettered Encouragement stamps set in black archival ink.
I added a few flowers from Oh Happy Day stamps and dies set to make this Hippo look really feminine. The flowers are coloured with watercolor markers.
For my male Hippo card background mat I used Solar Burst stencil.
I die cut a mat with a help of Stitched Rectangles die and blended several shades of Distress inks.

This sentiment comes from the same stamps set as for the first card.
For both cards I made the noses with two layers of card stock to add a bit of dimension.

To assemble the male card I popped the stencilled panel up with a piece of fun foam for extra dimension.
If you enjoyed these two cards made with Big Picture Book Hippo die you might be interested to see other dies in this product line.
