Another Christmas card!

Morning everybody,
I am following hurricane Sandy closely as I have family and friends living in east coast. I have my uncle and my aunt living in New Jersey! Fingers crossed, I will hear from them soon. Keep safe people! Thinking of all of you!
Here is a Christmas card made using the new Wplus9 stamps and dies.
Love the nordic circular stamp on the background. That is an older set called Winter Wishes.. Love to combine older with new sets. I generally do just to get more out of the older sets as well.
Ok then, got to go now. Very busy day for me. Therapy session to do, then pick up kids from school, take them to swimming after that. And it is going to rain here. Very muggy. Hope it downs and cools down.
See you soon!

Paper Crafting Tips & Tricks Week: The Square Punch Challenge

A quick post. I was making a lot of DT projects this morning and had a idea to make a card for The Square Punch Challenge @ Moxie Fab World! So put the idea into paper and here it is for you:)

I basically punched out a few red and green squared from pattern papers and cut them diagonally and arranged them. Added bling (always!lol!) I just love the pattern and colour the paper brings. And a simple birthday sentiment. Very clean and simple. Hope you like it.
Thanks for stopping by!

Hope! Love! Joy!

I had some Wplus9 goodies arrive last week.  So today when my men went prospecting, me and my daughter bonded, had some girly time, then die cut, stamped and coloured with some nice music on the background. Here is one of the cards we made together:)
We worked together, giggling and chatting away:) Aditi die cut and coloured the words “hope”, “love” and  “Joy”. I stamped the sentiments on the card and together put it all together. Colours were Aditi’s choice including stamping on the “Os” and adding rhinestones. We are proud of the result. Beautiful but unusual colour combination for a Christmas card. Hope you like it too:)

Diwali Blog Hop-Day #2

G’Morning from Australia!
It is Saturday morning. Gorgeous day today. Today is day #2 of our Diwali Blog Hop. We are showcasing anything other than a card today:) I went for a candle holder. Thats because Diwali is festival of lights. 
Here is my lantern/candle holder….
I used the same colours from my card yesterday to make my lantern/candle holder. I also used the Diya file to make the window and lined the inside with vellum to give a softer effect.
Here is both my card and lanter/candle holder.


Want to see what the rest of them made today? Here is the list of all the blog hop crafters.

Diwali, Silhouette

Diwali Blog Hop!

Hi everybody,
Diwali is a major festival of India. It is called Festival of Lights. There are different  mythical stories behind this festival. they vary from one culture to annother in India. Whatever maybe the story behind it, everybody in India celebrates Diwali. I have vivid memory of celebrating this festival as a child, with my mother and grandmother making sweets and savoury about 2 weeks before the day. Buying new clothes, gettng up very early in the morning, lighting up firecrackers, going to temple, sharing sweets with friends and family…. so much fun. I miss it. But atleast I am able to celebrate it with some very talented Indian Crafters. So when Chaitali invited me to the blog hop, I couldn’t refuse:) So welcome to the first ever Diwali Blog Hop!
Diwali Blog Hop
If you have come from Smriti’s blog, then you are on the right track:)
Today, we are focusing on Diwali cards. Here is my card.
Chaitali had sent a few Silhouette files of diwali movtives and words she had made and I have used them on my card. I cut the diya(lamp) and coloured them using copics. Stamped the background using Ikat background stamp from Avery Elle Stamps. Love the Happy Diwali words which is cut using Silhouette Cameo. What intensity of colours?  Which is exactly what I wanted to achieve. Hope you like it:)
Do you want to see what the rest of them have made? Here is the list of all the blog hop crafters.
Chaitali is also giving away some Silhouette files. So make sure you visit her blog. And if you make a project using her files, make sure you link your project to the linky on her blog:)
Thanks for stopping by!
See you soon with AnnaBelle Stamps Challenge:)

Welcome to CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge #3
Here is the sketch for you

And here is my take on the sketch.

I have turned the elements horizontally on my card. That gorgeous flower is called Blossoms and Blooms from Avery Elle Stamps. I have not used a ribbon in a long time and found it a bit difficult to tie the knot.lol!  I added texture by embossing. I loved how my card turned out and hope you do too:)

Want to see more inspirations using the sketch? Go to the CAS(E) this Sketch Blog to see rest of the Design Team’s projects. Make sure you link your project using this sketch at the blog.
