Advent Calendar Extravaganza with Taheerah Atchia

Hello friends!
I am so glad that you open that door over Taheerahs' Blog.... 
Yes, it's Virginia here!
s
I am so pleased to be part of Taheerah Atchia's Advent Calendar Extravaganza!!
s

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 love the stamps and die from Concord & 9th, especially they came up with the following set last month. I knew I had to try it out.
I saw it on Simon Says Stamp

Concord & 9th DAHLIA TURNABOUT Clear Stamp Set 10293
I saw it on Simon Says Stamp

Concord & 9th DAHLIA Dies 10294


I created a one layer with this stamp set....sorry that it's not Christmas-themed!
edited ( my EPIC FAIL HERE) 😓
I could have used Christmas colors! When I created this card, I forgot about the theme ...
well, Christmas....duh. 😏
If you don't see me making appearance in next year's extravaganza , you'll know why. LOL😉

hello gorgeous

I chose to use 4 colors for this Turn About Stamp because in each turn you get to use one color. Easy!
With the matching die, I cut out some vellum pieces and adhere over and around the large bloom.

hello
The inks I used are the following:
Simon Says Stamp: Cherry Blossom, Pocketful of SunshineDeep Blue Sea
and Warm and Cozy

For the shine, I used Altenew Emboss Ink and Translucent Clear Embossing Powder.
hello gorgeous-001
I saw it on Simon Says Stamp

Tsukineko Delicata ROSE GOLD Ink Pad DE000357


I love the Rose Gold Delicata which I used for the sentiment.
Of course, I had to stamp it with MISTI.

You've been a busy girl so it's easy to understand missing the Christmas cue for Taheerah's Advent Calendar. I'm sure you haven't missed your chances for next year, especially with this beautiful card. Christmas or not, it is gorgeous. The vellum and embossing powder add so much.

I also own the Dahlia turnabout stamp and it is lovely. Liked the way you added velum. I had to do mine 3 times before it seemed to line up. Don't know why I was having this problem, because it seemed I did same thing each time. Think it might have been jig.

Laura Peddicord said...

I love Concord & 9th products too, especially their fun turn-about stamps. I also think the colors you used are very pretty and a breath of fresh air in the middle of all the Christmas activities and preparations that many of us are trying to get accomplished before th holiday is officially too late. Thank you for sharing your card with us.

We will see you again next year hopefully with a new non-holiday card. In the 25 day countdown, you successfully changed it up right in the middle since today is the 13th. I look forward to seeing what you share next year!

You know, we all have need of good uplifting cards no matter what time of year, so I think this card fits perfectly in the theme! It's beautiful, and anyone would be happy to get it. The more I see this dahlia turnabout, the more I love it, so thanks for sharing yet another way to use it--and thus convince myself to get it! ;-) I love seeing your ideas in this hop, so thanks for participating!

Laurie said...

Beautiful card! I love this stamp set. It's just so clever! Great job!

TinyCrafter said...

Okay, I am raising my hand and saying how much I love your card because you used my favorite color in the whole wide world on it, yellow! Okay,a kind of yellow orange color but I won't quibble. I have clothes that color. I get that it's not Christmas and it was a boo boo but I love it anyway. I can see how this could have been Christmas though with red and green and silver and gold. I'm glad we got to see it! I read how you did it and I think it's a great technique. I'm sure they will ask you back next year, don't worry.
Thanks for showing us your colorful card and for giving us the chance to win something. When I win, I want this stamp! I have to have it because I could do so much with it!
