Monday Montage #218

It's hot, it's sunny, it's SUMMER!! Holy cow!! We had a loooong and cool spring, but summer seems to have gone into overdrive! I honestly haven't had much time to be crafty lately, so it was GREAT to have an excuse to get out some stamps, dies and paper to play!! I really need to do a massive clean up and destash in my craft room ... maybe next month?? Hahaha!

The Hippest Hippo might quite possibly my most favorite-ist new stamp set/dies combo that I have gotten for a long time! The images are ADORABLE and the dies are DARLING!! So many fun and varied possibilities! They most definitely make me happy!

I added highlights of Wink of Stella to the splashes of water and the little washtub. There's also a little bit of it on the lower edge of the cloud (which I colored with some light Gray Granite). A hippo with a snorkel??? What's NOT to love about THAT???

Stamps: Hippest Hippos, Penguin Place (sentiment)
Paper: Whisper White, Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana, Pool Party, Real Red, Flirty Flamingo, Daffodil Delight
Ink: Black Memento, Bermuda Bay; Stampin' Blends - Gray Granite (light and Dark), Petal Pink (light and dark), Balmy Blue (light)
Accessories: White 3/4" Frayed Ribbon, Wink of Stella, Split Card Textures Dies, Hippo Dies, Beautiful Shapes Dies, Cloud Punch, Glossy Dots
