Happy Holi - Crafty Meraki - Guest Designer

Image
Hello dear crafters, I am thrilled to be guest designing for Crafty Meraki !! Have you checked their website? You must and you can use the code ISHANI10 at  Crafty Meraki website for 10% discount! I am using the adorable stamp set   Holi Hai Stamp Set   for a Holi card with this adorable boy playing the drums called 'Dhol' and the boy hence is called a 'Dholi'. During Holi, traditional songs are played and people play with colors on the streets. The Dhol is an instrument that can charge you up and can move along the Holi playing crowd. So I fell in love when I saw him on the stamp set. For the Dholi, I stamped him with waterproof black ink and colored him with my Zig markers and fussy cut him. For the background on my white card panel I swiped the mini distress inks from above in rainbow with a pink colors and stamped happy Holi. I adhered Dholi with foam tape next to my sentiment and adhered the panel on a a landscape top folding black cardbase. I totally see this Dhol

Hello ! My garden is blooming with Roses, Calendulas, Mesembryanthemums, Chrysanthemums, Daisies, Petunias, some Poppies and Pansies from the seeds of last year and a beautiful long lasting flower that I don't know name of.

Hello dear friends, Don't be surpised! It is me! Have you played at the ongoing  challenge up at  Time Out challenges  , where  we challenge you to be Different? Spring is here - time to get hands dirty! We are very thankful to our sponsors  Funky Fossil for sponsoring this challenge.  The  winner of the challenge will get £15 gift coupon (British Sterling) to their store. I have used their  Plant a garden stamp set  and  I loved being different and trying something different! I have been loving cards by dear friend Kulbir and finally had an opportunity to try mixed media on my card! I had no clue what goes first and what second. I observed her cards and worked out the techniques. I must admit that I was surprised to see that you just can't do anything on MM panel. I realised there is method to this madness too. I loved mixing texture paste with colors, just stamping the bg, without stamping platform for precision stamping, it was like you going to a finest Patisserie and are

Hello everyone, a warm welcome to the  Women's day blog hop  at my stop. You are going great if you have arrived from  Deepti 's blog. If not, then I have the list of participants down below so you can get back in the right hop order. I want to thank all our sponsors, for the kindness they have shown and the support they extended. We are honoured by their magnanimity! We have more than 4o sponsors (last year we had 25 sponsors) and many of the are our guest for the hop too. Here are all our sponsors. Today, with my card, I wanted to emphasize, on something that I really feel from within. Unity of women ! I know many of you may not agree, but I see it so much - every one wants to get better than someone else! There is constant comparison and a competition within - to do better than someone else. I wanted to emphasize that No two women are same ! Just like the flowers. No two flowers are same. Even on one plant, they look different! One flower may have a beautiful fragrance, othe
