Embossing with Stripes

Don't you just love the Textured Embossing Folders that Stampin' Up! have, they give such a deep embossed texture and transform a simple piece of cardstock into something great!  This card features the new "Stripes" folder, perfect for those manly cards but still add a touch of class to any occasion.

My colour combo here is Pool Party, Island Indigo and Certainly Celery.

This cute little hippo is from the stamp set Kidoodles, the images are cute and great for colouring/watercolouring.  This card wasn't my idea, I saw it whilst blog hopping and loved how simple it was, just perfect to case for one of my 6 cards.

I used Blender Pens with the ink in the lids of the Ink Pads to colour in the hippo image.  Although these images all have a greeting attached to each stamp you can of course use a marker pen to use either the image or the greeting separately.

The lovely scallop trim circle was die cut using the Big Shot with the "Perfect Penants" die, this die also for creating Bunting!!

That lovely decorative border at the top is from the stamp set "Creative Elements" which I received at Convention, it is such a beautiful set consisting of 8 stamps.
