Missing you!

Hope you had a great start to this week! I am just popping in to show you a card with my all time favorite technique-heat embossing which is also the challenge at CAS-ual Fridays#16 and Mark's Finest Papers#69
Did you see the new challenge is up at Young Crafters Unite which is all about coloring the stamped images and I think this card is a perfect entry :)

 Supplies: cardstock: Elle Erre Fabriano!; stamps: PTI(Friends 'till the end), Ippity(Bit of Burlap, Regal Greetings); ink: Jenni Bowlin(Chewing gum, Cough Syrup, Brown Sugar), Rangers Distress Inks(Barn Door, Shabby Shutters);embossing:Versamark Embossing inkpad, Rangers Super fine detail embossing powder(clear); embellishment: Pie Lane(Rainbow faceted crystals, self adhesive leaf)

Well, I started out with the LilyPad Cards Sketch but then while making the card I just went in an altogether different direction (a girl needs to let go sometimes..ha!) but I was playing with my favorite technique- Heat Embossing and I just wanted to enjoy it.

The Ippity background - Bit of burlap(available for purchase with me) looks amazing with this technique although I was a bit disappointed with its size. Its small as compared to other background stamps available in the market. Another thing I discovered with this card is that Jenni Bowling inks work really well for emboss resist technique. I have a very limited selection of distress inks, so I looked for alternative and tried Jenni Bowlin instead and Voila...they worked great. The flower you see is colored in with Jenni Bowlin inks. Got to love that :)

I also enjoyed doing some heavy distressing of the edges and love the torn and rolled look of them.

If you have any other questions, let me know! We'll have the answers in our regular Q&A feature on Friday :)
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…

10 things I love about you..

...thats what I told my DH yesterday as it was our engagement anniversary. 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)
I used one of my favorite Echo Park collection "For the Record" for this card and love the way it turned out. 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.
