Birdies wishes

Hello dear friends,

My very sweet friend asked me to make a card for her husband on behalf of her and her daughter. Her husband is a fighter pilot and would be out of home for few months on a very important exercise (military tactics exercise). She wanted to wish him all the very  best for this important event and remind him that he can do it.

I had these cute dies from MFT dienamics and I thought I could make a scene apt for the theme. I die cut a circle and in the inner panel I adhered a blue cardstock. The flying bird has been given some dimension and adhered in the inner panel.

She liked it and I hope you like it too. Wishing her husband very Best of luck and linking it to

Thank you notes and cards

Hello everyone..

How's the mid week treating you? I have been super busy creating thank you notes for my professors at IIM Lucknow.

The thank you notes are for on the behalf of my class. For which I stamped the Thank you, did some brush lettering for the names of the professors and some normal hand lettering for the note.

I also wanted to give cards to few of my favourite professors and was thinking of a way to quickly mass produce. I had bought a really cheap stencil from my local stationery and wanted to try it too. So I used Faber Castell's Glass bead glitter gel for it.  Kept it to dry over night and attached a Thank you white embossed sentiment on a foam tape over the edge of the motifs. Put some more bling with sequins.

I chose black cardstock for this because in the previous card where I used this bead gel it didn't stand out!

The weird angles are to show you the lovely glittery effect. Hope you like my effort.

White Lily - CIC 440

Hello everyone,

This fortnight we have a new challenge for you at Cupcake inspiration challenges. It's a White out - Colour challenge. Oh I love colours and to think of having just white, was a little intimidating but I LOVE challenges, don't you?

I had my Uniko Lily stamp out, because of my previous card and this year's resolution of atleast making two card with one set before putting it back, made me use this flower. And white + lily = Sympathy card. Though I hope I never get to use it!

I used white embossing powder for heat embossing the lovely lily. I stamped two images, cut them around the edges and stuck few petals on top of each other. The background is inspired by Yana Smakula's card that I saw a couple of months back. And I had been waiting to create the similar bg. What had been stopping me was, that I don't have a scoring pad. So I did some measurements and scored the lines using the groove of my paper trimmer and used nuvo drops to get the quilted look…

Birthday wishes for my brave bear

Hello everyone,

I am looking forward to a productive weekend this time and lots of time to play with my kid too, now that all my exams are over! Yayy! My brother's birthday is approaching and I wanted to make a card for him. And Tracey's card at Muse card club was a perfect inspiration. My brother who's part of the Indian Army is combating infiltrators who sneak into the country to spread terror. He's positioned in the Himalayas and the rough terrain and harsh weather is what they face everyday. To us it's a picturesque view with mountains and snow fall.

I used the bear image from Jane's doodles  and as my water colours were out due to my previous card.. I gave the snow fall background with some emboss resist.. a die cut to show my bear in the snow and here are my wishes.

Here's my little brother who's no more any little..   posing in the snowfall with the mighty Himalayan backdrop.

Hope you like it!

Pink Watercolored Lily

Hope you are enjoying your weekend, as much as I am. After almost 5 months..I have a Saturday.. which I can call.. a weekend for me. And then.. how could I not make a card!

I took out my first stamp from an International company, Uniko's Pure florals - Lily. I remember so fondly how magnanimous Beverly was when I won this stamp and I didn't know if there was a budget.. under which I should choose. And this Lily was viral on Instagram.. so I was so happy to get this.

So, I had to make a birthday card to wish Uniko ltd, a very Happy 6th Birthday!

I used distress ink for stamping the Lily and coloured with Gansai Tambi watercolours. Then I used pencil colours to give those veins as the distress ink and water had lightened it. Fussy cut it and gave the edge a pink colour with a brush pen. I used stencil for the background and a die cut frame. And tadaa.. here's the card!

IQCG #44 Paper smooches

Hello friends,
Hope you had a loved filled day yesterday and some romantic time with your loved one. Also, I hope you have participated with your lovely work at the Indian Quilling Challenge for the month of February.

For my Design team inspiration, as soon as I saw the colour scheme of the challenge, the colors reminded me of shades of lipsticks and that's what I thought I'd make. 

With this being the love month, it's the perfect time to shower kisses on your loved ones this whole month, to your heart's content.  I have tried to replicate that feeling of love with my card and the sentiment 'I love you the mostest'  with these Paper smooches😉 (sentiment is from Paper smooches - the company couldn't have been better!)

I have used 3mm strips in three colours for the lips. Cut out a heart shape to put my sentiment on, which I have white heat embossed.

I hope you like my card and also if you haven't joined us yet, you still have time. For more on rules chec…

CAS Love card

Hello dear crafters,

I got this cute waffle flower cross stitch heart die and worked my way through it as I actually didn't understand how it would work. I used a heart die which fit wonderfully around the cross stitch heart die.  Now that I have made this card.. I have figured out more ways to use it. But for now, this one is for the Valentine's day. With love theme in few of my favorite challenges I had to make one despite a very busy schedule. CAS cards for me, take more time in making in the conceptual stage than while  making it. However, despite knowing what I wanted, this die got me a little puzzled.

So here's my pure LOVE card with faux crossstitch !

CASology - Guest Designer - Together

Hello everyone,

I am glad to get the honor and pleasure to be a Guest Designer at CASolgy. Thank you Melissa and the team of CASology for inviting me over.

This week's cue is - Together

CASology's cue always makes me think and associate the cue with all the little things around (which we tend to take for granted).  Bees are what I chose for my card. Bees have a lot to teach us, they fascinate us, they are beautiful, their importance to mankind is beyond measure and togetherness of bees is beyond comparison.  
Do you know Honey Bees are the most studied creature by humans after mankind?I remember Milka Gubo's blog hop last year where I read a lot about bees and if you have missed it, here's the link, I know you'll love it too!
I played with the sentiment to make it fit my bee theme and added my honey bees. Tadaaa.. bbzzzz..

Hope you like it. Let's live together like bees and with bees.

Cherrylana DT call

Hello everyone,
I have been following this lovely stamp company from Ukraine, Cherrylana designs on Instagram and they have a DT call, so this post is for applying at Cherrylana designs.

I am Ishani and I live in India. My crafting journey started with card making incorporating quilling around three years back. Seeing cards on Pinterest led me to explore card making with stamps and other media and now am in love with stamps. I love to learn and experiment new techniques but I think I’m slightly bent towards CAS style of card making. You can read more about me, here and my crafty resume, here.
I came across Cherrylana designs stamps for the first time on Instagram and have been an admirer of your stamps and the DT work. I'd consider myself very fortunate if I were chosen to be part of your team as I love your gorgeous designs. I feel you appreciate CAS designs and personally to me they bring out and focus the stamp in a much better. As an artist, it will be a great opportunity for me …
