Fussy Cutting with stamping + Video Tutorial !

Hello,

I have to share a card and video that posted on the Mudra Blog a couple of days back, bringing you some fresh inspiration and making an attempt to help you get started on stamping and letting the fear go away.

I absolutely love stamping, it's one of my favorite things in the whole wide world of art supplies. I also love using watercolors. If you are new to stamping,you might find it intimidating to stamp directly on the card base, for if you don't get it right, it will be difficult to salvage. Fussy cutting is a technique that can rescue you. It is one of my favorites too. Simply stamp your images on a separate piece of paper and fussy cut them and them figure out the placement on your final card.

Today, I created this card using the same technique and I also have a video, sharing the process.

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.
