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.

I know I w…

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)

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.
