Happy Thursday friends ,

Normal Two for Thursday BUT sorry we had a very busy week last week and

I wasn’t able to get the second video  filmed so only the

Glitter Pit LIVE replay from yesterday today

BUT  I have posted  the past two videos on this card design from  a couple years ago

  both videos are using retired  stamp sets but if you got those stamp sets 

you  will  have fun making this card  with those too .

The Hippest Hippos  stamp set #159921 and  Hippos dies  # 159928 are 

in the upcoming

Sale-a-Bration mini catalog that starts on July 1 , 2022 

both the stamp set and dies will be FREE at the $50 level YAY! (each) .

This card is the sweetest  fun fold card but the star of the

show is the cutest hippest hippos with their cute personalities & all the accessories in the Hippo dies collection 

  • Glasses/ Sunglasses 
  • Snorkel & mask
  • Boat
  • Umbrella
  • Water drops 
  • Flowers
  • Tub

and so much more !

I will mention the glasses are so fun 

I cut  the glasses in Balmy Blue and or Blushing Bride and also in Basic Black

  so I add the black for the lens to make them into “sunglasses ” 

without the lens they are cute as glasses.

I  cut the lens with window sheets to give them the true glasses  looks LOL! 

You will see that in the LIVE replay too if you want to see that ~ It’s  so cute! 

I recommend  you  running the window sheet  and die through the die cut machine a

couple times and even add a shim  for cutting the thick Window sheets  for the lens  on the glasses .

 I also  made this cute Gnome  card  This cute Gnome on the front is actually 

from the coordinating dies  die cut three  pieces

  • hat
  • beard
  • and  feet

and adhere together ~BOOM baby  there’s the super cute gnome .

Please Note:

 The brand new items I’m using on these  cards will be available on July 1st and 

I will not be able to post links to those items below in the supply list .
