MDF Favor Boxes!

As you all may know, my term at Lulupu ended this month and even though I had a great time working there and meeting new people, I am  looking forward to some new wonderful opportunities and work ahead.

By the way, Lulupu already has some amazing new designers on the team and I hope you will keep visiting there :D

So now moving on to new opportunities and new work :)
I discovered this amazing crafts store called Craftslane and when they asked me to showcase some of their products here on my blog, I couldn't say no :)

So I picked up the MDF Hexagonal Box in medium size from their store and got crafty.

I started by painting the box with a bamboo acrylic paint using one of the many flat brushes available in the Craftslane store.

And then I gave it a coat of glitter mod podge, haven't tried this stuff before but I have to say it's awesome. It leaves this sweet little glitter all over and is so easy to apply with the Craftslane foam brush.

The glitter is hard to see in the picture but it sure is very pretty :)

Next I picked this beautiful Kaisercraft paper from the English Rose Collection called Florence.

I cut the pieces to required size and glued them down using Mod Podge.
Next I added some punched border on the side and some tulle and felt flowers on top to finish it off.

Here is the end result and I think it looks pretty :)

The flower centers are actually beautiful MDF snowflakes. I topped the flowers off with Kaiser Craft pearls.

The silver outline on the top and the little pearls on the sides have been done using liquid pearls.

I am entering my beautiful box for the Gift Packaging Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.

ETA - that I made a matching tag for this box :)

I used this awesome Duo Die from Paper Smooches to cut out the window for the base of my tag. Then I painted my strip of card stock with bamboo acrylic paint to match the box and once it was dry I stamped the sentiment in black on it. And of course I had to add the magic of liquid pearls to the whole thing :)

Entering this for Crafter's Corner Challenge#9 - Gifts Galore.
I hope you like it and will give Craftslane store a visit today!

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…

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.

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.
