Is it ME?

Is it really me making a CAS card(well, I think it IS pretty CAS) and that too for Christmas? As far as I can the 26 years of my life(oops did I just leak out my age :D) I have made 2 Christmas Cards...not that I don't like Christmas or making Christmas cards but its just that my family and relatives don't follow Christmas that much :)  and I don't have anyone to pass them to. But this year is different, I have some wonderful blog friends from all around the world and the Christmas cards would be able to see the mailbox :). 

Anyways, here is the card I made based on Limelight Paper Craft Sketch #56 - Tags. As soon as I saw the sketch I knew I had to play along. Simple and beautiful sketch!! And yes Christmas card was on my list for Moxie Fab World Jolly Holiday Greetings Challenge but not this one (you might see other Christmas cards popping up on my blog soon)... I just happened to be sorting my ribbons last night and I noticed that ric rac -silver,red and green(had been sitting in the ribbon box for ages) perfect for making a Christmas Tree...and voila!! Here is my card...

I hand cut the tag and added that gift box(I love it) . Added the trunk of the tree using silver foil and wrote that sentiment. Love the little star on the top of the tree :)

P.S. Click on the image for the better view of the tree, sentiment and the tag.

I am also putting this one for Our Daily Bread Design Blog - White and Bright

Diwali Wishes

Hello people!! The weekend is so near that it makes me happy already :D Finally I started on my Diwali cards for this year. I know I am terribly late but I am trying to make it up. For my readers who aren't aware of the Diwali festival, Diwali is known as the festival of lights and one of the biggest festivals in India signifying the victory of good over evil. This year we are celebrating Diwali on 5 November. We celebrate by decorating our houses, lighting candle, fireworks, lots of good food, and lots and lots of sweets (I love this part :D) 

Okay now enough of blabbering, here is a card a made for the Moxie Fab World Challenge - Perfectly Placed Pleats  and Speedy the Cat's Friend's Challenge - Stitching

Look how the paper pleats make for the cutest candles. Doesn't that stitched sentiment look pretty too?

After I made one and liked it, I went crazy experimenting with colors, size, and various different things :D
Here is another variations I came up with.

I know I w…

10 things I love about you..

...thats what I told my DH yesterday as it was our engagement anniversary. One year back on 16th of May, we got engaged and I wanted to gift him something special and different and that is when I stumbled upon Monicka Wright's blog and decided to case her wonderful note card. I took the colors from Smidapaper May Color Challenge, polka dot theme from Lawnscaping Challenge. And I am also playing along Wee Memories Scrappy Saturday Challenge#56 - Get Sticky.

Supplies: papers: Echo Park Papers(For the Record);embellishment: Element stickers from Echo Park Springtime collection, Little Girl, For the Record, Walk in the Park, Twine from the twinery(charcoal)
I used one of my favorite Echo Park collection "For the Record" for this card and love the way it turned out. Added a little hand-stitching along the edges, embellished each tag with lot of elementary stickers from different Echo Park Collection and had the most fun writing those 10 things about DH. It made me fell so ble…

Gond Painting !!

Wishing you all a very happy holi !! Its a colorful spring festival celebrated here in India and I wish that it brings lots of happiness and good things in life for all of you!

And on this colorful occasion, I thought I'd share something different and something close to my heart with you all. I have been crafting right from when I was a little kid and I have always loved to explore different forms of art and craft one of which being the traditional folk art of India.

India has a very rich culture when it comes to art and off late I have been hooked to giving all different forms of folk art a try. After I tried my hands at Madhubani last year which is a folk art from the state of Bihar, I am now hooked to another tribal art form called Gond from the states of Central India (Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Orissa, Andhra Pradesh)

I love the way these Gond Paintings look. They are simple and yet so detailed. Its all about filling in the everyday life motifs with dots, dashes and lines.
