Hip-Hippo- Ray! New Release Day

Hello All!

Hope you are having a great Monday! Things have been super busy for me today because Whimsy Stamps has just released two new animals and two new animal accessory sets to our Whimsy Animals Collection! It's been a fun filled day!

I have a card to share that uses one of our new releases, this is Whimsy Hippo! She's all pretty in pink and has been popped up on foam tape and accented with a glitter pen. Not sure you can see all the glitter though.

I chose to make a gate fold card today to fit the new Whimsy Challenge of fun folds. We want to see you create a card using a unique or different fold, anything but the typically folded in half style will work for this one!

The layout is from this week's Mojo Monday sketch and I chose the colors to fit with the mostly orange challenge at Pile It On! I know this card isn't mostly orange, but it does have a lot of orange going on, so it's close! And Whimsy Stamps is sponsoring the challenge this week, so I hope you'll join in! :) Whimsy Hippo also fits the challenge at The Pink Elephant which is the theme of animals.

Here's the inside view, so you can see the gate fold. I decorated the inside using the same colors and paper and embellies from the outside.

That's all I have for today. I've got a busy week ahead of me, so I need to get some stamping in this afternoon. Head on over to Whimsy Stamps and check out the rest of the new releases!

Hope you have a great night! Happy Stamping! :)
