We're still playing catch up with all the fabulous new releases from Sandra Caldwell and today I'm showcasing #1752 Birthday Hippo. That is one huge cupcake, I'd say. I found fun candy striped digi paper from Ambillustrations and punched additional cupcakes from a large Martha Stewart border punch. Whoa! Tough going. I actually had to STAND on the punch to get it to go and did it 3 times to fill in the frosting with different colors. I added mini buttons to the tops to play in the Outlawz Saturday Paper Ala Mode challenge and used my new stitched tag dies from Gina Marie to cut Birthday Hippo and layered and popped for the Outlawz Twisted Thursday Layers and Dimension challenge. WooHoo!
Here's a closeup of #1752 Birthday Hippo. She's colored with Copics and I tried to get the piped feel of the frosting. (may have to work on that) there's a bit of glitter on the candle flames and some Nuvo drops on the balloon and sprinkles.
Just thought I'd mention that if you love hippos, there's a new challenge just starting in the Sandra Caldwell Stamps fans FB Group HERE. Sandra has reduced the price of 4 of her fun hippos and added two new ones for only $1.50 for the duration of the challenge. Check out the SALE digis HERE and come join the fun.
I'm also adding this to the DL.Art August Linky Challenge, the DL.Art Thankful Thursday #210 Circles and Stripes, Crafting with an Attitude #30 AG, the Paper Shelter #305 Punches and Dies, Crafting by Designs August AG, Simon Says Stamp Add a Sentiment (small, but there), TTRCD Aug 14-22 AG, Craft Rocket #40 Animal Kingdom, Crafty Friends #64 AG and Crafting from the Heart #172 AG...
