Hippos Enjoying the Carnival for Love To Craft Challenge Blog #70 for September/October 2022


For challenge #70 for Sep/Oct 2022 of the Love to Craft Challenge Blog I chose to use a Centre Step card that I had in my stash and decorate it with some images, paper and dies from La-La Land Crafts

Here is my card for this month:

I have stamped the three hippos from the Sweet Wishes Clear Stamp Set from the wonderful Irina at La-La Land Crafts on to X-Press It Blending card using Tuxedo Black Memento ink and then coloured with the following Copics markers:
  • hippos - E40, E41, E43, E44, R30, C00, C0, C1
  • cup - B12, B14, B16, B18, C00, C0, C1
  • straw - C1, R59
  • liquorice straps - R27, R59
  • chocolate - T2, T4, R24, R27, R59, E74, E77, E79
On the Centre Step card, I have adhered paper from the Celebrate Paper Pack.

I have diecut the ferris wheel from both white cardstock and silver paper using the Ferris Wheel die. Then joined the two parts together using a brad from my stash.

I have also diecut the two tickets using the Ticket die, outlined them with my B16 Copic marker and stamped the sentiments from Enjoy the Ride Clear Stamp Set using Nautical Blue Memento ink. 

I then adhered everything on to the Centre Step card.

Here are some close ups of the hippos before I fussy cut them:

Here is the layout before I adhered everything:

As usual, I have taken inspiration from the wonderful Alyce at Kit and Clowder and used some inspiration from the cards of the La-La Land Crafts Design Team on Facebook.

  1. Well they look like they are having a blast! I miss seeing your projects over at Crafting Happiness Challenges. We are now weekly with 2 options: 1) Card with a theme each week or you can choose 2) Not a card - there is no theme for non-card projects - it's anything goes. Hope to see you come back and play! This week the card theme is flowers. Smiles!
