Hi, lovely crafters!

I’m so excited to have been, once again, invited by Taheerah to take part in the mega festive event Advent Calendar Extravaganza. Thanks Taheerah, it is always a honour and a pleasure!

 

 

 

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!

 


 

Today’s sponsor is Flora & Fauna. I used the cute Floral Happy Holidays Set to make two different projects, but any of them is a card :).

I started with a tag that contains two other tags. I used a Tim Holtz stencil and Prima color bloom for the background in the main tag, enhancing with iridescent embossing powder while still wet. Then die cut two Spellbinders Opera tags, blending some Distress inks and partially heat embossing with gold tinsel powder. After this, I white heat embossed the little bird from Flora & Fauna, using heat resistant acetate. Did the same to the word Joy, this time using black EP. Mounted the Opera tags with foam adhesive, finishing with a puffy sticker flowers, and some crinkle ribbon.

 

 

For my second work, I did something very simple, but effective. I white heat embossed some flowers and leaves from the Floral Happy Holidays Set, colored with a few Zig real brush markers, and used them to make some pretty gift wrapping. Added the recipient’s initial, a repeated sentiment, and some white spatter. Next step will be mass producing this design for my Christmas gifts, as I was left with many colored flowers, birds and Holiday greenery :).

 

 


 

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 Flora & Fauna so you’ll definitely want to win! Simply leave a comment on this post – then head back to taheerah-atchia.com and leave a comment there too! You must leave a comment on Taheerah’s blog as well as mine in order to be eligible to win! Don’t forget to grab the other surprise destinations from Taheerah’s blog and head over to them to leave comments there as well to improve your odds even more! You have until 23:59 EST on 31st December 2017 to enter.

 

Don’t forget Advent Calendar Extravaganza runs from 1st-25th December inclusive so make sure you visit taheerah-atchia.com every day for fabulous inspiration and amazing prizes every single time! Merry Christmas!

 

Wishing you very Happy Holidays in the company of loved ones!

    I love the gift wrapping idea you did here, using the recipient’s initial. Such
    a clever idea and so special. The tag is very elegant (& I love that sweet birdie).

    Oh my goodness what a beautiful tag. Love it! I have to say, I wrap and decorate most of my gifts in kraft coloured parcel wrap however, it never occured to me to emboss on them. This is simply a stunning presentation. Absolutely stunning. Thanks fir sharing this great idea, I will definitely be doing this.

    What a stunning tag, hope whoever gets this on their parcel keeps it, the parcel is equally amazing, you must have to start early in the year for one on every present you send x

    I don’t know if the “A” on the wrapping is the initial of the person it’s intended for, but if so, that’s a
    brilliant idea! Such a pretty tag too.

    Because I’m a master of language, my first thought upon seeing your first card was “Awww, birdie!!!” But that’s such a cute bird! I love chubby little winter birds. And I love how beautifully the “tag” is incorporated into the wrapping on the present. It looks perfect for someone like my sister-in-law whose name also starts with an A, so I see a CASE in my future! Thanks for such great ideas!
