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 cracks...me...up!



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,
jj

  8. 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...
