Hi guys!

Super excited to be joining my friend, Taheerah Atchia, with her Advent Calendar Extravaganza this year again. What is it you ask?

Here are a few words from Taheerah:

“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 to see what special surprises await behind the door!”

I’m excited to share with you a card today created with some Paper Smooches stamps and dies. Meet today’s card… and my contribution to the Extravaganza.


This was so fun to make! I took images and dies from a couple different Paper Smooches stamp sets and dies sets – Swanky Snowdudes and Cool Dudes. And I kinda just crafted the scene together.

The yellow background was created by sponging a soft yellow ink in a circle onto the cardbase. And then I “grounded” the snow people by applying some black ink with a sponge to the ground.

A handmade card by Teri // The card didn’t feel complete without some extra details so I stamped a couple snowflakes and added some enamel dots to the middle of them. I also added a couple sequins and some dots created with Glossy Accents (how I LOVE them).

Alrighty, friends. That’s what I have for you but there’s more to the Extravaganza!

As Taheerah says, “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 Paper Smooches so you’ll definitely want to win!

Thanks again for stopping by, guys! You are the BEST!
