Hippest Hippo for the CAS Colour & Sketch Challenges #482

 Hello & thanks for visiting!

Today's today's card is inspired by the Sketch Challenge #482 over at CAS Colour & Sketch Challenges.  Please click on either my card or the #cascoloursandsketches image to visit their blog and then go make a Clean & Simple (CAS) card to share with someone 'just because'.  

My card is going to my mom, she loves orange, and truthfully I don't use orange often, so I was inspired and challenged to join the #tgifc380 colour challenge - Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo & Bermuda Bay.

Assembly & Trix

*  Add a bit of Bermuda Bay ink with a Blending Brush to the 3 1/4 x 4 1/2 Basic White cardstock layer and stamp the sentiment first before adhering the the 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 Thick Basic White card base.  

*  Stamp & die cut the Hippo from the Hippest Hippos Stamp Set, #159921 & the Hippos Dies, #159928.  Colour with Stampin' Blends Markers of choice (I used Smoky Slate & Petal Pink) and adhere with dimensionals.

*  Die cut the umbrella with Pumpkin Pie cardstock and the hearts with Melon Mambo and adhere with glue.  The umbrella is adhered with dimensionals.  ***Trix, when working with tiny die cut pieces, lay the die cut hearts on the card front first, then using the putty end of the Take Your Pick Tool, #144107 lift one heart up, dab a tiny bit of Multipurpose Liquid Glue on the card layer then lay the heart on top.  I also take off the pokey end and use it to hold the die cut in place while I lift off the putty end.  Yep it's a two handed job :)
