Weekly Video Tutorial #1 - Woodgrain Background

So finally I tried doing a video tutorial, and it isn't a professional one (Proof: DH laughs every time he opens up my video :D ) Its the first one and I was nervous, so please over look anything/everything you don't like in the video :D

Supplies: cardstock: Elle Erre Fabriano!; stamps: Skipping Stones Designs(Grunge);ink: Jenni Bowlin(Brown Sugar), Unity Stamp Co.(Raw Sienna);embellishments: Studio Calico Die Cut Alphabets, Hobby Ideas Butterfly rub-ons

I am in love with those Studio Calico Alphabet Stickers, and now I am thinking why I didn't use them before. :) I used the sketch at Skipping Stones Challenge#91. I loved Teri's sketches past month and this is the last one from her *sob,sob*. I was also inspired by the CAS-ual Friday's Challenge#17 - stuck on you to use ru
b-ons and stickers.

And here is the video, let me know how I did. I know a lot of improvement areas there and will work on them.I promise.

And yes, no more woodgrain background cards for sometime. DH is bored of looking at the woodgrain background whole week long :)

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.
