Penny for your Thoughts - (Use a sentiment) for Let's Craft and Create Challenge #184 on the 5th of June, 2022

For this month's challenge at Let's Craft and Create Challenge Blog we have the optional theme of

Penny for your Thoughts
(Use a sentiment)

I participated in a 2 day virtual cardmaking workshop from La-La Land Crafts in April and we made 6 different cards. It was so much fun! I still have a heap to finish - we used different colouring mediums and then Martha and Irina took it in turns showing us different card layouts and techniques using La-La Land Crafts products. They have heaps of awesome ideas that I hopefully will be able to use in the future! 

So this is one of three cards using the cute hippos from Nailed It Clear Stamp Set:

Here is a photo taken from the top so you can see the dimension and that the front in partly acetate!!

You can also see the acetate here:

This is the inside of the card showing the sentiment:

Nailed It Clear Stamp Set is part of the May 2022 Release from La-La Land Crafts. The patterned paper is from Life Documented Paper Pack. The vest and tie and all the other parts of the card came in our Workshop box already to use! We had to do a bit of cutting and glueing - although I used double sided tape mostly!
The sentiments from Nailed It Clear Stamp Set have been stamped with my MISTI in Black Memories Dye Ink.

The hippos were stamped on Neenah Solar White paper (Martha's preferred paper for Copics) with Tuxedo Black Memento ink - it is the first time that I have used Neenah Solar White paper. I think I will have to colour the hippos on X-Press It to compare!!

I have to admit, that I am totally in love with all the hippos from La-La Land Crafts!!
Here is a close up of all three hippos coloured (please forgive the very coloured and messy background - I clearly need to change my paper):

Here is a photo of the front panel laid out before I attached the vest/tie and hippo:
