Inspiration for Lulupu Challenge#12

Hey ya,

Sorry for being away and not posting here as regularly as I used to but I have been crazy busy with family commitments and loads of custom orders to tackle. I will be regular soon I promise :)

Before I share my inspiration for this month's challenge at Lulupu with you, I just wanted to let you know that my design team term is coming to an end at Lulupu this month. It was an awesome experience working with an exceptional team and meeting so many fun and talented crafters.

Lulupu is looking for new designers to start in June and its a great opportunity for you to give it a try and make it to the team :). For all the details on the team and how to apply, please check HERE

Onto my card for this month, I tried something that I hadn't done before, I tried origami and it was so much fun :)

Since the challenge theme this month is My first love, My dad and I was struggling with masculine theme as always, I googled and googled for ideas and that is when I saw a tutorial on making these super cute origami shirts. I thought they were perfect for a Father's day card and when I picked up my design team kit from Lulupu I found the perfect paper in the "Welcome to Paris" Prima Paper Pad to use for my shirt.

And here is what I made (which by the way, I am completely in love with :))




Isn't it super cute? I started by folding a A4 size sheet from the paper pad to make the origami shirt. The folded shirt was perfect to fit on a standard card size ( 4.25X5.5 ). I inked up the edges of the shirt using Black soot distress ink to give it more depth. I then sew the buttons to give it a more realistic look, added a pocket (on foam adhesive) and tucked in a tiny folded paper to look like a handkerchief. Once my shirt was done, I made a little tag to go with it and hand wrote the sentiment :)

And there you have it, a super cute origami card! Can't wait to see what you guys come up with for this challenge. For all the details, visit the Lulupu blog.

Have a good day my friends!

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…

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.
