Confetti Cheers

Hello everyone,

In my previous project I made a pattern paper with polka dots design with the eraser end of a pencil (Here). And I loved it so much that I wanted to do it more.

I am more fascinatinated to CAS style and I happened to go through some of my favourite challenges and thought of working for all of them in one card. I have so much to study.. Still I should make one card atleast!

Addicted to stamps and more  have a CAS challenge, CAS Colours and sketches are celebrating their fifth birthday and Casology's theme is cheer! So I thought why not Celebrate with some confetti for AAA cards too! (Now that's how you think of combining challenges.. right? :P )

I put glossy accents on few of them for added interest. Hope you like my Confetti Cheers!

Thankful - CIC #432

Hello ladies,

We have a new challenge up at Cupcake Inspiration Challenges for you and the theme is 'Thankful'. I take this opportunity to Thank, you and this dear crafting community for the constant encouragement and inspiration. I never have seen so much love in a community, where you have not even met anyone! May we all spread this kindness and make this world a better place :)

The fall is in full glory across the Northern hemisphere and nature being the best source of inspiration, I used die cut leaves for this card in the colours of fall. I loved the look the leaves gave and those crumpled maple leaves look like they arrived from the Maple Country, don't they?

Hope you are inspired and would join us at Cupcake Inspiration Challenges and also get a chance to win a gift certificate from our sponsors Crafty Sentiments.

Glitter on red

Hello dear friends,

I have a card today which I made for a fellow officer's wife's birthday. He told me it was her first birthday after marriage. I had to make the card look like it's an occasion for celebration.. of love and birthday. Why not the most auspicious colour for Indians.. colour of wedding and celebrations - red?

So, I did something which a Punjabi-still- choora- wearing new-bride might like.  For all my International friends, Punjabi is a community of India where, when girls get married they wear special bangles called choora, which they can wear upto a year and it symbolises a new bride. Let me show you a Punjabi bride or may be my own picture :)

Do you see the bangles.. wrist full of them? These are worn after marriage.. till few months.

I think this design would look great on a lehenga (a skirt). Too CAS for Indian Standards though :D
I hope the recipient likes it.. And you like it too :)

Thankyou - PCM Challenge

Hello dear friends,

I am sure many of you have come across Paru's Card Making Challenge. If you haven't yet then please join in every month for this fabulous card challenge hosted by a fellow Indian Paru Mahtani. Being a part of the Design Team at Rainbow Craftykari, I was thrilled to know that the team of Rainbow Craftykari has been invited to provide inspiration for this Month's challenge.

"Thank you" is the theme and I take this opportunity to Thank each one of you who has taken out their prestigious time to see my post. Am honoured and Thankful to you, from the bottom of my heart.

I planned to do something I started this journey of card making with - Quilling. I had also won the May challenge of Paru's Card Making Challenges for a quilled card, hence I chose to quill something.

Quilling takes quite some time and now that I don't have much spare time I resort to stamping, for quick results. I combined some stamping for this card (where the leaves are)…

Bokeh Love

Hello everyone,

I have been super busy with studies and exams.. actually they are still on.. but it's Saturday I have the whole day tomorrow to study.. I had been itching to make a card and I just went on Instagram to see which challenges are up and Yayy .. so many inspirations and I knew what I could do!

So I blended three different colours and then die cut small hearts on an acetate to make a stencil and with a white pigment ink made these small hearts with varying pressure and depth! Oh my my.. I am in love with Bokeh now! I hope it looks bokeh to you too. Now, without further ado, let me post it and link in for the challenges and sit back to study (Financial Management and Accounting Management on Monday.. I will die 😵 )

Hope you like it!

Chirpy birdies

Hello dear crafters, I am up on Rainbow Craftykari blog today with an inspiration post.

My Friendly Birds card is a tiny scene from the birdie neighbourhood.. hop on to the Rainbow Craftykari blog to see how I made it! Its super easy peasy :)

Looking at the trend of using die cuts for building a scene, I planned this card. I recently bought a die cutting machine because I thought I was missing out on this beautiful trend in the community. I made a story too around it.. about how a husband waits when two ladies meet at the fence to do some gossip! 😄

Hope you like my first-all-die-cut card!
