Happy Card Making Day!! So what are your plans for today?

Today's thanks card is dedicated to all of you who read my blog regularly, never fail to leave a comment and have been ever so supportive with all my little ventures here at this blog. Thank you so much!

So I have a lot of good things to share with you all today.

First up, I made it to the Prickley Pear Stamps Design Team . I am so excited to be on my first ever manufacturing company design team. You all know how I love stamps and they have so many wonderful ones. I just can't wait to get started. I decided to apply for the post when so many of you suggested that I should. Thanks a ton for enabling me! I look forward to a whole year of inking :) And yes the team is being formally introduced today on the PPRS Blog. I would love for you to go see :)
 
Second up, I was selected to be a Honorable Gnome at Lawnscaping Challenges. Cool...HUH! :D So happy!


And here is today's card
Supplies: cardstock: Elle Erre Fabriano!; stamps: Hero Arts(Speckled Ornaments, Live & Laugh),  ink: Jenni Bowlin(Brown Sugar), Distress Inks(Barn Door, Walnut Stain, Shabby Shutters);  embellishment: Pearls (Kaisercraft )

I attempted Piali's Stamp Block Challenge at Yvonne's Blog with my own little twist. Instead of stamping the block directly with distress inks, I misted them with water first and tada...a super cool background :)
And the walnut stain ink bleeding into the shabby shutter ink was a happy accident and I really like it.
Also entering this for Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Anything Goes.

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.


I know I w…

Birthday Explosion Box!

Here is something that I am very proud of. This was my first attempt at a 3D paper cake and I adore how it turned out. More loved because I am not really a pink girl and this explosion is all pink and I still love it :)



Don't ya love that cake? By the way, I recycled the "Happy Birthday" from an actual birthday cake :D
I am entering this for the Lessology Challenge#29 - Birthday Party Lulupu Challenge#17 - Fancy Me (I fancy special fold cards and I fancy trying out new things) Itsy Bitsy Challenge - Pretty with Pink (Pink, pearls, pattern papers, posy, paper clips, photographs)
Hope you fellas like it !
