Mama Elephant, poppystamps and Guesting for the CAS Christmas Challenge…

Hi cardmakers and friends!  I’m so excited to post today with the CAS Christmas Challenge!  I won their challenge a few weeks ago with a CAS wreath card and now I get the honor to play along with them as a guest! You are invited to play a long too!

The theme for this month is….

I chose to use one of the super cute Mama Elephant Santa Agenda stamps…the Santa that’s ready to go down the chimney!

He’s so cute!  I stamped him on Copic X-Press It coloring cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, in the MISTI and colored him with Copic Sketch Markers.

I used some white gel pen after I finished coloring to highlight his fur and beard.  TIP: Don’t color with Copics after you use the gel pen because it ruins the nib on your marker!

I die cut the poppystamps Snowy Merry Christmas die three times in white, glued them together, keeping all the pieces on two of the cuts. Then I die cut one time in red.  I stamped a brick stamp with black ink on the red cut, then pieced the red into the top white cut…going for a chimney look!

Everything I used is linked below.

I wanted to put snow or sparkle on the tops of the chimney but I was afraid I would ruin it! So I kept it CAS. haha

I added the small snow flake from the poppystamps Shiny Snowflake die and a red glitter dome.

On the inside I stamped, ’tis the season to be jolly from a Penny Black stamp set.

I sure have been having fun with my stamps and dies!  ‘Tis the season and my favorite time of year to make cards!  I hope you’re inspired to get in the Spirit of Christmas and make cards!  Thank you so much Loll for asking me and to the team for sharing their CAS creativity!

Thanks for stopping by!  If you want to see a fun video of a card I made that I didn’t get posted on my blog yet…click HERE…you can see it even if you don’t have an Instagram account.  I hope to make another and post instructions here soon. It’s super, super cute and FUN!  I am biased about it! HOHOHO

ttul!  (Remember to comment on my Tuesday giveaway post here on the blog, winner announced next week!)

  1. Cool card. I am already making mine too. Didn’t get cards out last year thanks to a visit from Hurricane Irma. I am actually making a Christmas tree today for a senior citizen friend who just had to move into an assisted living facility. She won’t have room for a big tree so my 4’ tabletop one will be perfect. Fun to make.

    Merry Christmas lol!!!

  2. Great card, and I love your background staging! You’ve inspired me to create for Christmas, my friend! Hugs…

  3. Hi Pam congratulations on your win. Love the cards and how you did the snow on the Merry. Your interactive card is adorable. My friends are coming down this week to craft together hope we have a chance to make this card.

  4. Fun card Pam! I love that sweet Santa. Great design with your layered snowy Merry Christmas. The dangling snowflake completes the amazing design! So happy to have you as Guest Designer this month at CAS Christmas!! xx

  5. Such a cute card…love the slowly Merry Christmas…love the brick look…very creative. OK..Missy…your video .love it, but I kept turning up my volume…no TALKIE …just open and close…lol…so cute…

  6. What a fun card! Love it! I enjoyed watching your wiper card on Instagram in action. I haven’t tried this type of interactive card yet.

  7. What an adorable Santa card, Pam! I love that you stamped a brick stamp with black ink on the red sentiment, MERRY, to make it look like a chimney! Great attention to detail.
    Thank you so much for joining us as Guest Designer for this month at CAS Christmas!
    Hideko xx

  8. Very cute Pam. I love the snow on the top of the letters die-very clever! Keeping very busy here-Steve got his second knee replacement on Tuesday. So far-it’s going much better than the first one!

  9. Oh, my GOSH! Too adorable, pretty, and fantastic for words! Love how Santa plays a minor roll in comparison to the big die cut, yet it wouldn’t be the same without him. So cool that you stamped the brick on the red, and I don’t miss the sparkle one bit. Sometimes it takes away the softness. I saw your other card on IG and thought it was so cute! Love the way that little reindeer pops up!

  10. Eeeppp! CAS perfection, Pam! That little Santa is adorable… wished I bought that set now. 😏 Love the dimensions and chimney idea of the sentiment! Thank you for guest designing for us this month at CAS Christmas. xx

  11. This is fantastic, Pam! I love that Merry Christmas die and how you’ve stamped the bricks onto the red! The Santa is adorable and I’m amazed at your Copic coloring on anything that tiny! Congratulations on your win and thanks for joining our Design Team at CAS Christmas this month!

  12. Adorable card. Love the cute Santa and the creative way you added the bricks stamp to the red Merry and then pieced in it..

I love hearing from you! Thank YOU!
