Are you ready friends?? So, 3, 2, 1… Happy 8th Anniversary Mama Elephant!!

I’m very happy to join this amazing Blog Hop to celebrate this fantastic event!

There are so many talented designers who are waiting for you with lots of inspirations, so look down below this post to find out who today’s designers are!

Today I’ll share with you the project I created featuring the super sweet “Santa Baby” set, that you can find in the amazing Anniversary Release. I chose to use this funny Santa who’s coming out from behind the mailbox: he is so cute, isn’t he?

You know, I really love coloring and creating 3D effect in my cards, so I started with a shadow sketch for my project.

Then I stamped Santa using the Distress Oxide Tattered Rose on a gray bristol paper and I coloured it with pastel pencils and Prismacolor Pencils. I added the shadows with a black pastel pencil that I blended using a blending stump. At last I created the snowflakes with a white gel pen and I embossed the sentiment on a red paper.

I hope you’ll like my project and that it will inspire you!

Appassionata da sempre di arte e creatività ho spaziato per anni negli hobby più disparati (pittura, cucito, ricamo, bigiotteria, intaglio del legno, paste polimeriche, ecc.) per approdare poi al vasto mondo dello Scrapbooking, dello Stamping e del Cardmaking. Armi e Ritagli nasce con lo scopo di poter condividere quanto imparato in anni di lavoro e soprattutto di condividere la mia passione per la creatività a 360°.


  1. What a magnificent and spectacular release! You did a spectacular job to showcase creative ways to use everything. You rock!

  2. Your card is stunning, the way you’ve coloured him up is awesome. I must try out your advice with the shadow sketch first. Thank you for sharing your design & inspiring me to keep practicing.x

  3. Oh my goodness, yes yes Happy 8th Anniversary Mama Elephant! 🎂🍨🎉🎉🎈 This Santa set is A.dor.a.ble!! Your coloring technique is fantastic, such personality and wonderful dimension… I couldn’t stop staring at it! Beautiful and fun! At first I thought you used a stencil for the snow, but way more soft and pretty. Love it!
