A week in cards - day 6

Happy Saturday!! I hope you are enjoying the weekend as much as I am. This will be a quick post as I am heading out for some shopping :)

It's day 6 of our AWIC event and here's a card I made for the Hero Arts March Challenge - Birthdays, Stamped envelops and layering technique and Craft Away Your Days Challenge#15 - Black and White.

Supplies: cardstock: Elle Erre Fabriano! ; stamps: Hero Arts (CL384 - Floral Frames, CL401 - Speckled Ornaments, CL372 - Oceans of Joy); ink: Momento Tuxedo Black; Gauche Alchemy punchinella;

I have very limited Hero Arts Stamp (only 4 sets to be precise) so I make the best use of whatever I have on hand to enter their monthly challenges to be in the chance for winning some more :D (who knows I might get lucky some day :D) . For this card, I used some punchinella as mask and sponged with black ink and then stamped over it. I didn't have an appropriate sentiment stamp from HA to go with this card so I cut down the sentiment from Oceans of Joy set and created my own sentiment (clever...huh?).

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.
