Hippo, Lamb, and Kitty are dancing in the summertime! After using my Paper Snips to cut them from their Zoo Crew Designer Paper, I colored Lamb’s and Kitty’s flowers with Pool Party and Lemon Lolly Stampin’ Blends. Hippo’s flower was already colored, and they wanted to be as colorful as she was.

Dancing Trio


The dancers asked for a sunny background, and we found the Lemon Lolly stripe in Bright & Beautiful Designer Paper. I cut it to 5 1/4″ X 4″,. and glued it to a Lemon Lolly card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.


But, that wasn’t enough! They wanted to dance on a “hill.” I remembered a wonderful, curved, die in the Elegant Borders Die Set, and used it to cut Basic White Cardstock, 5 1/4″ X 2 1/4″. This beautiful “hill” made Hippo, Lamb, and Kitty very happy!

The die set isn’t in the catalog, because it’s an online exclusive. Clicking on its picture in my Product List will take you there. 

To complete the card, we needed a sentiment. The dancing trio wanted to say something about smiling, and agreed that, “every thought of you makes me smile,” was perfect. It’s from the Textured Floral Stamp Set, stamped in Memento Black Ink.


I was inspired by The Paper Players.
