I am in Christmas mood!

** There is still time to enter my BIG giveaway. See the side bar for details.

Even though Diwali is just around the corner, I don't know why but I am in Christmas mood. Anything I create is Christmas-y these days (Its probably because of all the new Christmas craft goodies I got recently :D )

Well, since I am anyways creating Christmas cards, I thought I'd enter a few challenges. The first is the  Hero Arts October Challenge. I loved this month's sketches and wanted to give them a try. I also used the Polka Door Inspiration picture for the lovely colors and holiday theme.


  Supplies: cardstock: Elle Erre Fabriano!; stamps: Hero Arts(CL355, CG211, CG245, CG125); ink: Distress Inks(Walnut Stain, Barn Door, Shabby Shutters), Versamark embossing ink;embellishments: Kaisercrafts(Rhinestones - Red), Twine from The Twinery

 I have used 3 different Hero Arts background Stamps- clear embossed and covered with 3 different distress inks to create my own pattern paper. I then used those pattern papers to create my tiny dimensional ornaments. For the the background, I clear embossed the Christmas sentiment on Kraft card stock, I love that effect :)  And all that was left to do, was sprinkling gorgeous red rhinestones and finishing with it some twine.
I also wanted to participate in Young Crafters Unite Challenge of creating matching envelopes. I created this one with vellum, love the soft look. embellished the flap with the same circles used to make the ornaments on the card, gemstone and some twine.

 

Come back tomorrow for my first PPRS Challenge Inspiration Post!

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.

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…

XOXO - Altenew Peony Bouquet!

I have a crazy schedule at the moment but I couldn't let go of the opportunity to play along Altenew's March Challenge. It's such a gorgeous inspiration picture. I picked up the colors from the inspiration and love how it turned out.







I stamped the gorgeous flowers and leaves from Altenew Peony Bouquet Stamp Set on Fabriano Elle Erre Binaco cardstock and colored using water soluble oil pastels, blending the colors with my finger. Then I fussy cut all the elements to arrange on the card. For the background, I scribbled the two shades of green water-soluble oil pastels onto white cardstock and lay Hero Arts Pebbles stencil on top. Then using a wet wipe, I went over the stencil to create the texture on the background. The wet wipe blended the open areas on the stencil leaving the crayon look on the negative portion. I stamped the sentiment from the Altenew Painted Greetings Stamp Set. Then using foam tape and liquid adhesive, I arranged the elements on the base and then mount…
