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.

I know I w…

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)

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…
