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! Just like an Advent Calendar, you’ll never know where you’re going to be visiting next until you ‘open the door’!

I’ve created a couple of fun Santa tags for today’s post.

For the first tag, I used the Paper Layering Santa die. But instead of showing off the “layering”, I added a bunch of dimension to it using a Pentart Snow Pen and a glittering it up with shimmery Stickles. The coloring was done with my Copics. I hand-trimmed around the top Santa, then used the frame from the die set to cut a layer to go behind. The “to” and “from” from Christmas Messages were added inside.

The second tag features one of my favorite teeny tiny stamps from the Winter Collection – Santa’s Sleigh. It was designed to pair the the Destination stamps, but I think it makes a super cute background when stamped repeatedly! I colored the sleighs with my Copics, and then die cut with the Tag Infinity dies, layering it with a larger Kraft tag. The “ho ho ho” message is also from Christmas Messages, and the “to” and “from” are between the two tag layers on this one as well.
