Mama Elephant So Many Snowmen Christmas card

Hello and welcome to another challenge at ABC Christmas Challenges that will run from 3rd to 31st October.

Our Host is Lisa and the themes this time are

U –  for Upon
V- for Very Quick

Our Sponsor is

All Dressed Up.

The winner will receive two free digis of their choice
from Wendy’s Etsy shop. Here is a little information about the shop:-

Hi I am Wendy Burns I live in Nottingham UK with my husband and two children who have been the inspiration behind the characters, in particular, my daughter who has kept me up-to-date with blogging and trends. I work predominantly within the textile children’s wear market, fashion and interiors.
I trained as a textile designer and although my work is digitally based, I love to retain that hand-drawn /sewn feel which I hope comes across in my artwork.
Digital stamps is a new challenge for me and the opportunity to work with the All Dressed Up Team and has been very exciting, in particular, the creative way my characters have been given individual personalities by the designers .
All Dressed Up is a newly launched blog with an enthusiastic team who are passionate about stamping. The coordinators Marilyn and Tracy along with an amazing design team are also known as The Dressy Girls.
We have a friendly Facebook page, regular blog posts, tutorials, challenges and freebies. The stamps can be purchased from the Etsy shop which is updated on a monthly basis. We really are a friendly bunch and would love to see your creations so please feel free to contact us and visit the

There will also be a prize from Lisa.

I chose to go with V for Very Quick. I stamped the Mama Elephant So Many Snowmen stamp and quickly coloured bits of the image with Polychromo pencils. I trimmed around the top of the image before placing foam tape on the back.

For the background, I used some snowy patterned paper and stuck it to the base card before raising the snowmen on the lower part.

I finished off by adding the Paper Smooches Merry Christmas die which I cut three times and stacked. Using a large image that required very little colouring really made this a fast card.

You'll find lots of inspiration over on the ABC Christmas Challenge Blog, and I hope you will join in with us this time.

I'd like to play along at
