Hello to all!!! A new week has started with lots of new ideas and new products filling our craft room. Here everyone is on a wild shopping spree buying new clothes for the upcoming festive season. To stay tuned with the season, I too decided to try something new.
This is my first attempt to go off my type i.e to play with fall colours and vintage techniques.
So, Out came my new Tim Holtz stamp (It has been lying unused since last 6 months), and my new fabriano cardstocks-brown and black and a new sentiment from Inkadinkado. The woodgrain texture is another new effort using my fiskars texture plates in the CB and lots of distressing with wild Honey, vintage photo and color box-brown. On the stamped image, I,ve used Tea Dye and Forest Moss with a touch of Wild Honey. The image is highlighted with black embossing pen at a few places.
PHEW!!!! I,ve never played with so many colours at one go.
Other supplies are MS punch-Doiley Lace and jute twine from stash. Spellbinders-ovals.

Hello everyone!!
I wish all my friends a very Happy Navratri!! For my international friends, Navratri is a nine day festival celebrated all over India when Goddess Durga is worshipped with in all the Hindu households. People fast for nine days and there is a frenzy in the air. There is dance, music and lot of happy excitement that fill the atmosphere. In West Bengal, the Durga Puja (worship) is celebrated for five days and beautiful pandals with life size images of the Goddess adorn the whole city. The artmanship of the statues and the pandals is so beautiful that at times you will not be able to say what is fake and what is real. This is a festival to celebrate the triumph of good over evil!

So let us all kill the negative feelings within us and let positivity rule.


Now on to some crafting!!! Lately, I ve found card making to be very the
rapeutic! A great stress buster. Specially for me, it works wonders. And if the results are as desired then it adds a lot to my confidence.

This is one such card.

I love this colour combination as these sunny colours really perks up my spirit. When I think of the colour yellow, the first flower that comes to my mind are daisies and so I had to add them here. I,m following the colour scheme from CR84FN39 here and the photo inspirations at cupcake challenge.

supplies: elle fabriano dark brown, PP-Echo Park-country drive DP. distress inks-marmalade and cocoa brown, ribbon from stash, MS double loops punch, fiskars-treading waters, Spellbinders Labels And sentiments from Fisakrs, memento tuxedo black. flowers-punch crafted using bunch punches, butterflies-stampendous

Card Making is a great stress buster! I realized this today when amidst lots of work and Rakhi preparations for tomorrow I made this card and felt totally relaxed!
I have used the colour combo at PDCC 94 and it is specially made for my daughter who wants to give it to her best friend.
Lots of distressing and heat embossing goes into it. I created my own PP with stamping and distressing.

This card is very special to me cos, I,ve really worked hard on it. Cuttlebug, silhouette, distressing, punch craft all have gone into making this card. This is made for 50th anniversary on request of someone very close to me. It is my version of a step card and I,ve given the look of desk top stationary. The message is put as a seperate card. One can also use it as a calender by putting every months card on it.

This goes for the following challenges.
