Mama Elephant Color Challenge–From Our House to Yours!

Hello my loves!


I told you I’d be back soon with some crafty goodies to share, so here I am!  Kryssi Ng asked me to join her and some of her other uber talented friends to help her launch the Mama Elephant Color Challenge.  Since I adore Kryssi and Mama Elephant Stamps, my answer was a resounding “DUH!!”  LOL

Color Challenge #1

Look at that delicious winter color combo – my heart skipped a beat when I saw it and immediately went to work.  I stamped those darling little penguins from Polar Pals and colored them with Copic Markers (man, am I rusty at coloring since I hardly ever do it anymore!).  I used the stars and snowflakes image from the Believe In Magic set.  The igloo, snow banks and “Merry” banner were created using my Silhouette Cameo.  I don’t know if you can see it in the photo, but this project is very sparkly in real life – the igloo, snow banks and sentiment banner are dazzling!


STAMPS:  Polar Pals and Believe In Magic (Mama Elephant)
INK:  Black Dye  and Unicorn Pigment (Hero Arts/Memories), Tuxedo Black (Memento)
PAPER:  Robin’s Egg CS, Strawberry CS, White CS (Bazzill), Solar White CS (Neenah Classic Crest)
OTHER:  Silver Elastic Cord and Dazzling Diamonds Glitter (Stampin’ Up!), Copic Markers, Silhouette Cameo (Silhouette America), Igloo Cutting File (Silhouette Online Store), Adobe Gothic Standard B Font


So, I know you want to play along with us, right?!!  I mean who can resist a fabulous color challenge?  Not me!!  Please click on through to the Mama Elephant Blog for all of the details and the InLinkz widget to link up your projects.  This is a two week challenge, so you have lots of time to brainstorm and create.  The winner will be announced on the Mama Elephant blog on December 31.  Oh, and if you don’t own any Mama Elephant Stamps, Kryssi has provided a delightful digital image for you to use!  How nice is that?!  You can find the free digi HERE.

PRIZE:  You’ll be playing for a guest designer spot for an upcoming Mama Elephant release!!  Woohoo!  There will also be one random winner of a Mama Elephant Gift Certificate – fun!!

There you have it, friends!  Please click on through to the Mama Elephant Blog to see the other inspirational projects that Kryssi’s friends have created for your viewing pleasure.  I know you’ll be blown away!


Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I’m winging my way to Seattle to celebrate the holidays with our family today.  But I’ll be back again soon.  Wishing you and yours a very blessed holiday season!

This is sooooo cute! Those wee penguins just make me want to poke their bellies to see if they squeak!
Sweet sentiment!

Here we go again, just when I think I have conquered the urge to get a Silhouette, you toss something as sweet as this our way!

Wishing you many happy hours spent with family and friends, enjoying the warm fuzzy feeling that this season brings!
