Hippo Baby Card

Hello everyone,
I am back to share this baby shower card I made for my eldest son and his wife who are expecting their first baby soon and I used the absolutely adorable Rainy Day Play stamps and dies from Clearly Besotted.
I started by using my Distress Oxide Ink in Broken China on a piece of Neenah Solar White 80# card stock then sprinkled some clear water on and blotted off, when dry I cut it out using the Wonky Scalloped Frames from Avery Elle.  I set this panel aside and then cut a piece of Neenah Solar White 80# card stock with the same die for the outside frame.  I then took a piece of Neenah Desert Storm card stock and made an A2 sized side fold card base, I then glued down the frame and inked panel to the card base and set aside to work on the elements.  I colored the hippo and his umbrella, water puddle, splash and ducky with my Copics and then glued them on my panel. I used the "Welcome Baby" sentiment from Newton's Nook Loveable Laundry set and stamped in Versafine Black Onyx ink on the front of my panel.  I then used my white gel pen for accents on all the elements and my Spectrum Noir Glitter Gloss Pen on the umbrella, puddle, heart and splash, then used Glossy Accents on the heart, splash and ducky.  I finished my card with some clear confetti sequins from Unity Stamps.  And that is all for this card.

See you all soon!

Update Time

Change is so hard but yet it is inevitable....
The only thing constant in life is change

So I know it has been a while since I have posted but I am back.  
Life happens and wow has it been a busy few months.  I do have a card and it will post shortly and I think it is a fabulous return for my crafty blog.  I will try to post a little more frequently then I have recently, but it will still be a bit hit and miss for a while.  My folks are currently living with us as they prepare to move to a new state and personally our family business is changing and growing and taking up quite a bit of extra time.  Also, I wanted to personally write and say that I absolutely loved being on the SumMore Fun Design Team, but my time there is over, it was fun and I have learned so much and stepped out of my comfort zone by being on the DT and so I am sending a huge thank you to SumMore Fun for having me.   
So having said that, enjoy my upcoming post and I will see you all soon!
