A Camping Hippo

June 25, 2019

Hey Everyone! It is EK here and I am popping in with this fun camping hippo themed card using the new Tent die set and Hippo/Rhino die set. I am actually at Girl Scout camp this week teaching crafts to campers, so it seemed only fitting to create a girl-scout-inspired camping card today!

I snuck in a full video today sharing how I colored the die cuts using both distress inks and copic markers.

Step One: Die cut the Tent die set out of 90lb White soft finish cardstock. Color tent pieces with distress ink.

Step Two: Blend distress ink onto a 6×6 card frame using the Earth & Sky stencil and distress ink.

Step Three: Die cut the Hippo die set and color the pieces with Copic markers. Assemble the pieces with Kids Choice Glue.

Step Four: Assemble all the pieces onto the card frame using both clear Double Sided Adhesive and Kids Choice Glue. Stamp a sentiment onto the card frame using the new Build Your Own Sentiments 1.

I hope you enjoyed checking out my camping hippo. Are you camping this summer with your friends or family? Let us know in the comments below, and which of the new critters you would use to highlight you camping trip in a craft project. Until then, Happy crafting!

    It was fun to think back on those scouting days! I was a GS and my Mom was the leader. When I had all boys, I became a BS leader. Now that I am in my 60’s, all that seems so very long ago.

    Great video. You are a great speaker, clear and to the point. I love the creation and that you used Copics to color with as well as distress inks. Fantastic.
