Hey there!   It's Tricia here today sharing two cards that I made with the recently released Hippo Party stamp set.   I had so much fun coloring up these images that I had to make two cards!   I stamped the images onto  Premier Polar White card stock and colored them with my Copic markers.   I then die cut them out with the Hippo Party Confetti Cut.   I knew that I wanted to do one with a pool scene and then one with a beach scene.  

For my pool card, I used the new Bubbles Cover Panel and ink blended with Iced Aqua, Lagoon and Island Blue inks.    I then die cut the Bubbles Cover Panel and then kept the interior pieces.   I die cut one more white card panel and then layered the inked panel and the white die cut panel together.  I then inlayed the inked pieces back in to the Bubble die cut.  

I layered this on top of an Iced Aqua card panel that had been stamped with the Pattern Blocks stamp set with Iced Aqua ink.   I stamped a sentiment from Hippo Party and then layered the images on my card.   For a final detail, I added some crystal sequins. 

I love the Hippo with the glasses down on her face!   This card turned out so cute, I am giving it to my sister for her birthday!   

Now for my beach scene........ I love creating backgrounds with the Cover Panels and this is one of my favorite ways to fill in the interior of the Scalloped Square Frame Confetti Cut. 

I made a 4 1/4 square card using the Scalloped Square Confetti Cuts, I die cut the largest one from Iced Aqua  and white cardstock.  I used the Split Circle Cover Panel and die cut white card stock and then layered this with the Iced Aqua card stock.   

 I decided to add a stamped ice cream cone for each card using the Ice Cream Social stamp set.  Sometimes, it is hard to fit a sentiment onto the front of the card, so I opted to stamp it on the inside.   I had so much fun creating these cards!    Thanks for joining me today!
