Elliot Elf gets stuck...

...up a chimney! I am sorry if you are over Elliot Elf by now, but I'm having fun with him. I seem to be spending at least part of each night where I can't sleep (almost 31 weeks now and the belly is getting, well, you know, BIG) thinking about what Elliot can get up to next. I have another one on the back burner...not sure about it yet though....we'll see.

Anyway, this is Elliot stuck up a chimney. Easier to do than the others because I didn't have to work out his arms juggling presents...that's the hardest part of Elliot IMO.

List of Ingredients:

Cardstock: Real Red, Chocolate Chip (plain and textured), Basic Black, Close to Cocoa, Glossy White, Shimmery White, Kiwi Kiss, Old Olive, Blush Blossom and Brushed Gold (all SU)
Ink: Real Red, Blush Blossom and Kiwi Kiss Classic Inks and Whisper White Craft Ink
Stamps: Merry, Merry (retired SU)
Punches: 1 3/8" Circle, Two-Step owl, Word Window, Curly Label, Boho Blossoms, 1/ 1/4" Square, Eyelet Border, 5-Petal Flower and Small Star (retired) (all SU)
Accessories: Woodgrain Emboss Folder (Craft Concepts), Dashing DSP (retired SU), White Gel Pen (Misc), Gold Cord (retired SU), Real Red Brads (SU), Dazzling Diamonds (SU), Crystal Effects (SU), Basic Black Marker (SU), Stampin' Sponges (SU), Real Red Stampin' Pastel, Basic Black Stampin' Pastel, Sticky Strip (SU), Dimensionals (SU) and Tombow Adhesive (Penwa).

Once again, the instructions for making this cute little elf can be found on Marie Shaughnessy's blog here.

Thanks again for all the lovely comments on my other Elliot cards. Your time and feedback is always really, really appreciated :-).

Well, its gonna be hot here today...only 27 degrees celcius, but my body seems to be adding 5 - 10 degrees...so I'm going to be doing my best to not do much!

Hope your day is a good one.

Again, another super cute Elliot Elf card.

Hey, you're on the final stretch - not long to go. I was like a whale when I was pregnant with my son. Keep cool - we're expecting and are probably at 32 today, 32 tomorrow then crap rain for the weekend. We are getting evap cooling installed next week - yippee - it will probably be the coldest summer on record now, lol!

Hi Sam,

this one made me laugh and gasp with delight (all the elf cards have been gorgeous so far). Poor Mr Elf hope he gets out soon :) Love the clever idea of the picture over the mantel being used for the sentiment!! Take care and cool down - splish splash?

Paula said...

Mr Elliot is full of mischief! Another great elf card Sam. Can't wait to see what he gets up to next. I think you have started a storyline here!

Kim Score said...

Rebecca said...

Poor Elliot Elf. I just laughed when I laughed at this card. You did a great job. Punch art is still my favorite.

Hi I love your card Can youtell mw how you made the tree Thanks Michelle My email is wrobele@netnitco.net

Jocelyn aka JoBear2 said...

Another adorable card! LOVE how you did the tree and it is just so uber-cute the way the elf is peeking with soot on his face. I couldn't help but smile as soon as I saw him. Stay cool - we have had incredibly humid weather here in Melbourne so my Evap Cooler doesn't work. You wouldn't want to be here! Ick! And we just had a huge storm - never seen hail THAT big here - 1cm - I put some in the freezer to show my DH for when he gets home from work in case he thinks I'm exaggerating! Hmmm, wonder how my lettuces in the vegie patch are faring...... probably rather "holey" by now! Keep up the elfs - I LOVE seeing them!
