TO - Welcoming Goddess Lakshmi - Diwali card

Image
 Hello everyone, We have a new challenge at  Time Out   and it is Down to Earth with optional twist of using kraft cardstock. Our fabulous sponsor is  Alex Syberia Design . The winner will receive a $15 gift voucher to her amazing store  HERE ! For my card I chose the Hindu belief that on Diwali day, Goddess Lakshmi comes DOWN TO EARTH from the Heavens above (sitting on clouds). For which we clean and make our homes pretty with beautiful designs on the floor. Do you remember this card?  Where I also made Her feet with Rice flour paste? She is the Goddess of prosperity and wealth. You can see coins coming from her hands and being dropped DOWN TO EARTH. This is quite a literal translation of what we have heard and made me chuckle :D when I thought of this design! I stamped the cute  Cute Goddess LAkshmi from the Good luck stamp set   by Itsy Bitsy  with a waterproof ink and watercolored with Zig markers. I used the  Golden illusion Meraki sparkle  for the coins that are coming from her

 Hello everyone, Hindus all over the world are getting ready for upcoming Diwali and so am I ! Here's a mini slimline card using the gorgeous stamps, dies and embellishments by Crafty Meraki. I love this Rangoli or Indian Motif design in the stamp set Happy Diwali and stamped the motif twice and happy Diwali in between and colored with Copic markers. I cutout a dark pink cardstock from Crafty Meraki Parisienne Mini slimline die and adhered on a white mini slimline cardbase. To decorate and make it more festive I added Meraki Sparkle Blue illusion embellishments. You have to just buy one and try and you will want to buy all! I can't stop putting them on all my cards :D I hope you like this festive Diwali card.

Hello dear crafty friends, We have a new challenge up at  Cupcake Inspirations  and we have  Theme challenge  - Halloween Fun! We are teaming us this challenge with Double Trouble Challenges - Post your cards there also following their rules My son has been keen on this holiday, thanks to all the cartoons he has been watching, so I planned I'll make some quick CAS cards for Halloween. Check out the other card with no specific Halloween stamps. We just moved and I shared some memories here  and as I was unpacking I realised I had bought this cute ghost die as part of a lawn fawn set. The reason to buy the die set was to make white on white ghost like Angie Cimbalo had made 2 years back  (here) . But I couldn't think of a sentiment that I could use. So I stamped B from  Uniko's Alphabet outlined stamp  set and two cute ghosts.. for a BOO! Hope you will play join us with your Halloween crafts at the ongoing challenge at Cupcake Inspirations. Also, I have great ideas if you us
