Hippo New Year

I’m over at the Topflight Stamp blog today with a fun New Year card using some Katzelkraft stamps.

As I was putting away my Christmas stamps, I realized that I don’t have that many New Year themed stamp sets. Mental note, must do a little more “New Year” stamp shopping soon. haha

Anyway, these sets from Katzelkraft are great since the Jungle Animals have so many fun expressions and the Holiday Quotes can be used for all the holiday cards you need. I chose the hippo for my card, since it looks so happy which is the perfect way to start the New Year.

I started by stamping the image on Copic friendly paper and used my greys to color in the hippo and add shading where the artist had drawn lines. I cut the hippo out and added it to this fun scrap of paper in my stash. I’m not one for New Year’s resolutions, but I think this year I am definitely going to try to use more of my pattern paper stash.

I stamped the sentiment in black Versafine ink and clear embossed it to help it stand out against the floral background. I then attached the pattern paper to a white card base and used a ruler and black pen to outline the edge.

I hope you have a wonderful New Year celebration and that 2019 will bring lots of exciting adventures your way! Thanks for stopping by. Cheers!
