Advent Calendar Extravaganza with Taheerah Atchia

Hello everybody and welcome to my blog! So excited this year, I'm joining  Advent Calendar Extravaganza with Taheerah Atchia

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!

I created Card and Tag using Mama Elephant products. Yes! All supplies are from our today's sponsor "Mama Elephant". So, I grab my favorite Christmas stamp set  A Beary Christmas! I'm so loving with this bear family illustrated by Aida Zamora



I stamped all images on watercolor paper with Distress Ink - Antique Linen, colored with Kuretake Zig Clean Color brush pens and then  die cut it with A Beary Christmas - Creative Cuts. Framed my card with a glitter frame that I die cut with Dotted Details Creative Cuts. For the sentiment, I heat embossed the words from Season's Wishes. I finished my card by added here and there some Sparkling Clear Sequins.



For complete my card, I create a simple tag. Here I used rounded frame from Lafayette Creative Cuts and Venice Envelope Creative Cuts. And Merry Christmas word are from Wishful Taggins stamp set.



And here are my complete project for today :) 
Hope this inspired you to create beautiful projects to celebrate the Holidays with your loved ones!
