Aditya's Birthday Blog Hop!

Today I am participating in a birthday blog hop to wish Aditya a very Happy Birthday!

We are all gearing up to celebrate the birthday of a wonderful person, he happens to be someone who is perceptive and cooperative to the point of being idyllic. Most of us in the blog hop know him through our common interest in crafting no one can deny knowing his honesty and candidness. He is one of the most accomplished paper crafter known to us and it is our wish for him, that he gets all that he aspires for in this new year. We wish him the best of everything, Happy Birthday Aditya and may you have the best of times with friends and family and an extremely crafty time ahead. We also hope that his store reaches to one and all in the crafting world and he hoards more of our favorite supplies with lesser rates :D :D

Why don't you join us in wishing him a brilliant birthday ...? 

You should have arrived here from Sree Swathi's blog. If not, you might want to visit Neha Jain's blog for all the blog hop details including prizes.
For my card today, I pulled out my PTI goodness to work with

Supplies: cardstock: Elle Erre Fabriano!;  stamps: PTI(Friends 'till the end, Harvest Berries); inks:Jenni Bowlin(Brown sugar, Seed Packet), Unity Stamp Co. (Raw Sienna); coloring medium: Faber Castell Markers

I had so much fun coloring in the flower using Faber Castell markers. It was time consuming but worth the time and effort. I distressed the edges lightly using raw sienna ink.


Entering this card for Jay Gee's Nook Challenge#15, inspired by the colors and serenity of the inspirational picture.

Hope you will find time to wish Aditya, a very happy Birthday and make his take extra special!
Next stop is Neha's blog! Do visit to see what she has in store for our Birthday Boy :)

Have a good day! See you soon again!

  6. I will have to look into these markers. I have some I purchased but do not like at all. I am also looking at investing in copic or le plume. Will add Faber Castell to the list of possibilities.

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…

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.
