Avery Elle: Hipster-Potamus

Hi guys!  Chunyuan and I are back to share more February release projects from Avery Elle!  Last time it was a hipster giraffe, and today I'm working with the companion set, Hipster-Potamus!  The fedora in this set!

I think this first card may just be the CAS-iest card I've ever made!  I took the glasses and the bow tie from Hipster-Potamus, added the mustache from What's Up?, and the sentiment from Good Fortune.  This little card just makes me smile (and kinda makes me want to eat a Pringle too;)  Fun, right?

This next card is pretty CAS too, but he's got a little secret:)  I stamped the hippo onto some Simple Stories patterned papers and paper pieced him together.  Then I printed out the sentiment onto card stock on the computer.  Then I mounted the little colorful hippo onto the card base with a wobbler so he can shake his booty!  Check out the quick video to see him shake!  {Don't know what a wobbler is?  Check this out.}

That's it for me today!  I hope you had a bit of fun.  Don't forget to click on over to Chunyuan's blog to see her project for the new set What's Up?!

Before I go, I want to mention the Avery Elle AEI

!  The winner of this challenge gets to join us next month as the guest designer!  The winner gets 2 free sets from the upcoming release and is featured on the blog.  How cool would that be?  Hope you play along!

Mahalo and Aloha,


  1. Hahahaha awesome cards JJ! The hippo shaking his thang is so funny, and I can't help smiling at your mustache card too!

  2. groan - did you just sell me on another product? (I'm pretending to be annoyed, but that hippo is the cutest thing ever!)

  3. Love both of these! I might just need that hippo now!

  4. I love the hippo hippo shake care! So cute, great piecing on him!

  5. Eeek! The hippo hippo shake is a hoot JJ! How cool is that?

  6. Now I'm thinking Pringles too, lol :)
    That hippo...and now he's on a wobbler? GAH! Love it :)

  7. Your hippo - that's what I love about you - your silly sentiments. As for the Pringles, just read some trivia. Didya know that the guy who invented the canned chips idea for P&G wanted to be buried in one. Family aquiecsed. Cremated and buried in a Pringles can...

  8. Love your CAS "Pringles" card and that fun mustache! And a wobbling hippo? Too cute!


I'd love to hear from you! Aloha!
