Young Crafters Unite Blog Hop!

Welcome to the second blog hop for Young Crafter's Unite and since I love their challenges, I decided to participate again and get creative. The theme for today's blog hope is "Masculine" (certainly a difficult one for me :D ) which is also the theme for current monthly challenge at YCU.


If you arrived here from Neelu's blog, you are on the right track. Otherwise you might want to start from Young Crafter's Unite Blog. There are some fabulous prizes lined up, so do not forget to leave comments along the way.
For my card masculine card today, I went with the CUTE (well, boys can be cute sometimes :D)


Supplies: cardstock: Elle Erre Fabriano!; stamps: Penny Black(hello friend),  ink: Jenni Bowlin(Brown Sugar); coloring medium: Faber Castell markers; pattern paper: MME (Stella & Rose); embellishments: Pie Lane crystals

I picked up my only and well loved Penny Black stamp set and had an amazing time paper piecing the image. Did you notice how I used the balloons from a different image in the same stamp set and attached them to the gift box(which is actually a luggage bag) in the car? And did you notice the head lights of the car? Those gorgeous big Pie Lane Crystals are perfect for the head lights :) . I finished the card with a birthday rub-on sentiment from Hobby Ideas.

Your next stop in the hop is Barb Murphy.

I hope you have a great time hopping along. Thanks for stopping by 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.

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 …
