Guest Designing at Craft Stamper

Hi Everyone,

I am so delighted to be Guest Designer for the July TIMI challenge over at Craft Stamper for week two of the month long challenge.
The theme is easy - take a stamp! But is has to be the real thing, not a digi.

Took me a while to figure out what to do.....

I finally settled on that fun hippo from Katzelkraft. I thought it pairs up perfectly with the sentiment from Rubber Necker. The background I did with an ARTplorations stencil (STAMPlorations) and the wonky stitched border is the brand new Cutplorations die also from STAMPlorations.

Just imagine what else you could do with that fun stamp!

Happy Stamping and don't forget to link up at the TIMI challenge!

Suchi said...

The sentiment is really inspiring! Your card is very sweet! LOVE the background! :)

Mac Mable said...

This made me smile...Yes the stamp and sentiment work great together. I shall now look at my cloud stencil in a different way...off to try those fabulous clouds you've done. Thank you for the inspiration x

Deepti Aggarwal said...

Beautiful card..love the cloud background too much..

Funny card and congrats on your DP !

Talk about an encouragement card...this is it. Flying hippos conjure up all kinds of scenarios in my brain. It's just so very clever that your sentiment really says it all. And pink for the hippo is just plain perfect. That background really shows off your amazing stencilling skills, as well.

Imagination can do anything, knows no limitations. Exactly as you did with the stamp. Super fun. I love your cloud - they are clear and beautifully tangled. Congratulations the guest design. Craft Stamper has gained a lot :-)

ACK! I love this! A hippo with wings (definitely a cousin to the hippo-sized ravens in our town!) and he's PINK! That face....toooo cute! You've created a wonderful cloudy sky for him to fly through and the sentiment is marvelously inspiring! Imagination in plentitude here, my friend!

Andrea Ockey Parr said...

What an absolutely inspiring card! I love the sentiment and the scene you created could not be more perfect! Your coloring and shading is exquisite and that sky is so life-like! I like the stitching detail around the edges, too. This came together beautifully and I thought it was a unique and welcome interpretation of our red, white and blue theme. Thank you so much for sharing your skills with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!

Oh my, this is brilliant, Cornelia ... gorgeous cloudy sky and a fun, fun, fun pink hippo ... such a cute way to represent that fabulous sentiment! I'm smiling! Hugs, Anita :)

Bobby said...

This made me chuckle, Corneila. A flying hippo in a fabulously inked sky and a great sentiment that ties it all together.

There is a saying ..."when pigs fly" ...but never a hippo fly! This is so cute. Thanks for joining us at Simply Create Too. Janelle (DT) :)
