Hello crafty friends, long time no see! I had a wonderful trip to South Korea (my hometown) during November and am back (so excited) with super amazing Taheerah’s Advent Calendar Extravaganza today! Yay!!
Advent Calendar Extravaganza is -the- festive event of the season! This ‘hop with a twist’ was dreamed up by Taheerah Atchia and features surprise destinations each day! Joining in the fun with Taheerah are ONE HUNDRED special guests – each serving up some fantastic Christmas inspiration! Just like an Advent Calendar, you’ll never know where you’re going to be visiting next until you ‘open the door’!
And that’s not all! With 25 *amazing* sponsors taking part as guests as well, your crafty wish list is bound to get a boost with a chance to win a prize EVERY SINGLE DAY!! Join in the fun every day at taheerah-atchia.com to see what special surprises await behind the door!
I want to share with you my Christmas cards using the SSS Magical Christmas stamp & die set I designed.
To start, I repeatedly stamped the deer from the Magical Christmas set on an A2 sized white paper panel in Barely Beige dye ink – I used the Mini MISTI Stamping tool. I then stamped the deer on a separate white card stock in Merlot dye ink, die cut it with the matching die. I added some stitches on the stamped panel using the Stitched Slopes and Hills dies and for the sentiment, I used the Believe word die. Lastly I mounted all elements as shown to A2 white card base using foam tape.
For my second card, I used the polar bear image from the Magical Christmas set. I stamped it with Audrey Blue dye ink.
It’s not a party without a prize – and with prizes every day there are several chances to win! Today’s prize is generously supplied by Simon Says Stamp so you’ll definitely want to WIN!
