One stamp - Two cards

Hello everyone,

I finally took time out to click these cards I made after the Twofer challenge was announced. I was too busy with my birthday and my son's. Not mine.. but yes.. Birthday party for my 4 year old kept me busy. I used the Peek -a-boo stamp set by Craftyscrappers for my zoo animal - hippo!

For the first card I used a stencil called Fade Diamond by Craftangles to create the back panel of my top folding card and stamped the hippo on the edge, coloured it and cut it along it's mouth for some interest. And a sentiment from Mint Owl Studios -Snarky Birthday sentiments that I bought from Ankita Agarwal's destash.

For my second card I did masking for my Hippo team that's come to thank their friend. I added some bows and hats for some interest and DO swimming pool in the background. Hippos love water!

  5. How can anyone not smile looking at that happy hippo image?! So I love that you made amusing card designs with him, Ishani! What a great edge you created on your first design by cutting along the lines of the hippo! And, wow, what an accomplished masker you are to create so many hippos for your second design!

  6. He eh..all the gandg of hippos made me smile ..both of them are adorable!

  7. Oh my gosh! What a cheerful card! The hippos made me smile Ishani. I really love the edge cutting you did on your first card. So wonderful! Also thanks for sharing in at ATCAS humour challenge.

  8. Oh Ishani, these cards are both gorgeous, but that first one still is my favourite.

  9. Hi Ishani, your's twofer cards are amazing!!! I love the image of the hippo you used. You were so clever in making a lot of them on the card! I love both cards so much, you are a talented card maker!! Thanks for visiting me on my blog. I wanted to follow you by email as well but didn't see a button to sign up for that, unless I missed it. If I did, please let me know. I forgot to visit if it doesn't come to my inbox. lol Hugs, Brenda

  10. These are both fabulous, Ishani! I love the way you cut along the bottom edge of the single hippo and the adorable pops of color add so much personality to the second card.

  11. That hippo image is fantastic! I love how you selectively cut around so that she's at the bottom. A perfect sentiment and bg stencil to go with her too! That pack of hippos is so creative and fun! I love their bows and hats, and the vibrant water behind them. Thanks for joining in the fun with us at the Twofer Card Challenge!

  12. These are both so fantastic! Your colouring is amazing... and your masking? I can't imagine attempting that! You did a fabulous job.
    Thanks for playing along with Seize the Birthday.

  13. Brilliant, Ishani ... both of them! You've made that first hippo stylish and handsome with the cool background ... love how you cut around his hooves and smile to emphasise the humour of the sentiment! Fantastic masking and colouring on your hippo crowd ... and delicious detailing adding the little bows and hats ... such fun! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Twofer! Anita :)

  14. Thank you, Ishani, for your kindness. Knew those adorabel hippos would be a real crowed pleaser when I first saw them. Congratulations on your win.

  15. Congrats on your well-deserved win at Addicted to CAS! Both cards are amazing and your coloring on the hippos is just beautiful! I hope to hear from you soon about being our Guest Designer for the next challenge...Barb
