Gift of Friendship!!

Just popping in to share a card I made for Dana's get more out of Patterned Paper Challenge at Yvonne's blog. I loved this challenge because I hardly use PP on my cards (not that I don't like PPs, I love them. But I often have no clue how to use them :) ) and didn't want to miss it. I had been hoarding a few beautiful PPs for ages and took one out for this challenge. The paper I am using is from Hobby Ideas and here it is (before I used my scissors on it :D ).

(ain't it gorgeous? notice the tiny fairy in the corner)

And here is the card I made 

Supplies: cardstock: Elle Erre Fabriano!, Hobby Ideas PP ; stamps: Mark's Finest Papers; ink: Memento (Tuxedo Black); Hobby Ideas 3D glitter 

I cut out the base from the top left corner, highlighted some of the  flowers with white gel pen and glitters. Then I cut out the flower with fairy(neglected one :D) from the bottom right corner and placed it on the base. I popped up the wings using 3D foam dots and added 3D glitter to the wings.

Using colored gel pens, I highlighted various parts (flower head band, face, flower, etc) to make it pop up. As the last thing, I added a sentiment which goes well (I think so :)) with the image and the theme of the card.
Hope you like it!! Thanks for visiting!!

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.

It made me fell so ble…

A year in review 2016 + Giveaway!


As we step into the new year, I wanted to take a moment and reflect upon this past year which has been mostly amazing for me. 2016 was tremendous for me in terms of both professional and personal life. Yes, there were moments and events that I would not never like to experience again but today I just wanted to focus on the good and happy.

So today I am going to highlight my favourite projects and moments throughout this year. I also have a giveaway for you guys as a thank you for always being so supportive and appreciative. You always motivate me to do better and more.

I started year 2016 with this close-to-my-heart watercolor piece. This artwork is special because this was the first of the many! I fell in love with using stamps to build watercolor scenes and kept making them throughout the year.

This photo of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco has so many lovely memories from our big family vacation this year. It was fun converting it into a watercolor piece. Also this …
