Pinspired Challenge #18

Hi! Today starts a new Pinspired Challenge!

We are sponsored by Pink Hippo (store located HERE).

Pink Hippo was a name I picked out years ago when I first thought I might want to dabble in the clear stamp business. I have the most supportive husband in the world and anything I have ever wanted to do he has been behind 100%. I have a 27 year old daughter who is my world and that is where the name came in. Her last name is Hipp and when she was growing up we always collected hippo things, preferably pink!

I am a retired business owner and didn't start crafting until about 3-4 years ago when I retired from my business so I am a late bloomer. I have always felt like a crafty/creative person and was so excited to think I may have an avenue for it. I got my first cricut die cutting machine and just started playing around and was hooked.

I didn't actually start stamping much until the past two years. I love stamps and thought I would like to see more on the market that are more on the humorous side because I love humor. I had tossed around the idea of stamps for years but just decided to jump in and just have fun! I love halloween so much that I decided that had to be the first thing I worked on.

I made some cute little tags for this one! I used the new Lawn Fawn Into the Woods stamp set along with the Winter Gifts tag stamp and coordinating die (Tag, You're it).  I created the dots in the back using Trim the Tree.  Everything was colored in with my Spectrum Noir markers.

I hope you'll play along with us! The winner gets this stamp set:
