Young Crafters Unite Blog Hop + Prizes!

Welcome to the very first Young Crafters Unite Blog Hop! The lovely Britta (I love her videos :) ) and the super talented Marie have put together this great blog hop. I knew I  HAD to sign up. :) 


If you are arriving here from Tania A's blog, you are the right place.If you’re not sure what this blog hop is about or what you’ve stumbled upon, you can go here to the main blog hop website.

The theme for the hop is "Our Favorite Things" and I have tried my best to incorporate some of my favorite things on today's card. It is inspired by one of my favorite crafters of all time Vicky Papaioannou card here. I am using my favorite technique of stamping and emboss resist and one of my favorite color combo of red, vanilla and raw sienna.

 Supplies: cardstock: Elle Erre Fabriano!; stamps: Ippity by Unity Stamp Co. (gurnsey gingham), smART Works; ink: Momento (Tuxedo Black, lady bug), Unity Co. (Raw Sienna);

As to what makes me young apart from my age (if you consider 27 to be young :D) is that I am a kid at heart. I enjoy little things in life, giving and sharing and learning new things.

Thank you for visiting my blog! Make sure to check out the blogs that follow for some jaw dropping creations and for a chance to win! Randomly selected commentators will have the opportunity to win prizes from Simon Says Stamp, Paper Smooches and Lawn Fawn.

Next blog hop stop is talented Amber R.


I am entering this card for Lily Pad Inspiration Challenge#3.

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…

Birthday Explosion Box!

Here is something that I am very proud of. This was my first attempt at a 3D paper cake and I adore how it turned out. More loved because I am not really a pink girl and this explosion is all pink and I still love it :)



Don't ya love that cake? By the way, I recycled the "Happy Birthday" from an actual birthday cake :D
I am entering this for the Lessology Challenge#29 - Birthday Party Lulupu Challenge#17 - Fancy Me (I fancy special fold cards and I fancy trying out new things) Itsy Bitsy Challenge - Pretty with Pink (Pink, pearls, pattern papers, posy, paper clips, photographs)
Hope you fellas like it !
