Advent Calendar Extravaganza with Taheerah Atchia

Hello and welcome back! I'm excited to be playing along in this years 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!

Join in the fun every day at taheerah-atchia.com to see what special surprises await behind the door!

For my card, I used today's sponsor, Waffle Flower, but I didn't have any holiday stamps made by them so I had to get creative. :)


I used the Riverside stamp set and tuerned the elemennts in this stamp set into a winter scene. I'm sure it's a little chilly in the tent, but I don't think the bunny minds LOL! When I stamped the bunny, I didn't ink the top of his head so I could draw a Santa hat on him and make him a little festive.

I did some masking to create the scene with the tent, bunny, trail and tree stamps and then I coloured the rest of the scene with my Copic markers to give it a night sky. I also used my white gel pen to make it snow.




Since the stamp set didn't have any holiday sentiments, I used a sentiment from a Neat and Tangled stamp set to complete my card.

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 Waffle Flower so you’ll definitely want to win!

  24. I accidentally posted this on Taheerah's blog instead of here (on wrong tab in Google). So now, commenting where it belongs:

    Wow – love this card, and am now more excited as I actually have the Riverside stamp set and hadn’t even used it yet; thank you for the inspiration – doubt I’d ever have thought of such a pretty winter scene as you did with your card!!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. You did a fantastic job of adapting
    a summer stamp to a winter project.
    I'm sure the bunny will appreciate
    the tent - better than being under
    a bush. Great card.
    thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  99. You would have to be a very, very brave soul to camp in a tent in the winter but since bunnies live outdoors anyway, I'm guessing the bunny didn't mind. I'm cold just looking at your card but I am glad I have my flannel jammies on so I'm not to cold. I love how you used your gel pen for the snow. I have to check out Waffle Flowers to see what they have to offer. Maybe Santa will bring me something from them for Christmas? Thanks for showing us your very different and I do mean different Christmas card. I love how you made it look like Christmas but you didn't. I think you know what I mean. Camping in the snow is not something you see on a Christmas card and I am glad I got to see it. I am also glad I didn't have to actually participate in it! LOL Thanks also for giving us the chance to win something. When I win, I won't buy a tent so I can camp in the snow! LOL
