I crafted.....finally :)

So I had been struggling to find time to craft with my home needing cleaning & organizing (being away for 3 months isn't fun that way), my younger brother visiting, maid being on leave for a couple of days in between, whole lot of laundry waiting to be done and not to forget a 2 month old, very active baby around who wants complete attention when she is awake :)
I finally crafted yesterday when she slept and I was so happy to craft after more than 3 months (feels like ages). I desperately needed the "ME" time.

As I was browsing some of my favorite blogs, I saw this weekend challenge: Mini Cards over at Penny Black and I knew it was the kind of start I needed. Nothing too big, just small mini cards :)

And here is what I made.



Supplies: cardstock: Elle Erre Fabriano!;  stamps: Penny Black(Hello Friend); inks: Jenni Bowlin (Brown Sugar);

Super fun tag shaped mini cards which can be used for any occasion from Birthday to Christmas.

I used "Hello Friend" PB clear set, lots of watercolors, some stickles and braided yarn string to enhance the home made effect.

I am also entering this to the current Paper Issues Challenge - Tag, You're it.
See ya around soon (I hope :))

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.

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…

A year in review 2016 + Giveaway!

Hello,

As we step into the new year, I wanted to take a moment and reflect upon this past year which has been mostly amazing for me. 2016 was tremendous for me in terms of both professional and personal life. Yes, there were moments and events that I would not never like to experience again but today I just wanted to focus on the good and happy.

So today I am going to highlight my favourite projects and moments throughout this year. I also have a giveaway for you guys as a thank you for always being so supportive and appreciative. You always motivate me to do better and more.




I started year 2016 with this close-to-my-heart watercolor piece. This artwork is special because this was the first of the many! I fell in love with using stamps to build watercolor scenes and kept making them throughout the year.


This photo of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco has so many lovely memories from our big family vacation this year. It was fun converting it into a watercolor piece. Also this …
