Hi Everyone! I’m happy to be Guest Designing today for Paper Nest Dolls!

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I just had to play with this adorable hippo with  heart from the Hippos stamp set. There are 5 stamps in this set and they’re so cute and perfect for all sorts of occasions. They’re also available in digital HERE.

I kept this clean and simple to let this hippo shine!

I Copic air-brushed a gradient on die-cut letters using R85, R83 and R81 and added a few Memory Box die-cut hearts.


I used an embossing folder on the gray background panel and popped up the center panel with dimensional foam tape. A heat embossed “YOU” finished it off.

Copic Markers Used:

Body–W0, W2, W3, W4
Hooves/blush–R20, R21, R30
Heart–RV02, Rv10, RV13, RV14
Bow/patch–BG11, BG13, BG34

Hope you’ve enjoyed and thanks so much for stopping by!
