Friends Forever!

Here is one of my favorite cards (I know I haven't been able to capture its beauty in the photograph, all thanks to the non-stop rain and gloomy weather). Anyhoo, I loved the technique of dry brushing on Make it Monday feature at PTI blog and immediately wanted to give it a try.

Supplies: cardstock: Elle Erre Fabriano!; stamps: PTI(Friends 'till the end), Skipping Stones(Grunge), American Crafts; ink: Momento (Tuxedo Black), colorbox pigment ink (white);  Embellishments: White pearls(Itsy Bitsy); embossing: Ranger's (SeaFoam White); Pattern Paper: My Mind's Eye(Stella)

I am obsessed with my only PTI set Friends 'till the end (I guess you all know that by now :D). It's simply gorgeous and worth all the money spent on it. I loved the dreamy effect that the dry brushing technique created and the Grunge background from Skipping Stones set was a perfect addition. I have heat embossed the flower in white and then cute them out and layered for dimension.

And before I go, I want to give a shout out for Paper And Such Designs. They have recently started with clear stamps and have already been through one fabulous release. They are giving away 2 yet to be released sets on their blog and I am sure they are gonna be as fabulous as the last release. Click HERE to read about how to enter the giveaway.

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.
