The festive season is in full swing here in Kolkata and I,m leaving for a 12 day vacation to Kashmir. There is lot of work to be done, enormous packing and plus pending work to be completed. I really wanted to take part in the Stampalot Challenge-Punch Away as punch craft is my passion. I,ve been working on this card since last three days and could manage to complete toniight. But alas!! Due to poor light , I could not take a good photograph. I know, the low light has done little justice to the beauty of this card. But a lot of effort has gone into it so I hope you will leave me a few good words.
Since I,ve got to catch the 4.00 am flight tomorrow, so I will not talk much and stright forward move to my card.

First let me share with you some great news!! I,ve been chosen as DT for the Imaginationsonline store . I,m really thrilled and look forward to lots of new ideas and craft projects. Do check out the new look of the store that has really good craft supplies.
The holiday mood is setting in and with the advent of christmas, what is only in the mind are cards and gifts. I wanted to make these Poinsettia flowers since a long time and finally I when I could make them, I was really happy because not only the results were super but also that I could do something with punch craft something I,m really fond of !
This card is made on this sketch from crafters' cafe blog and has lots of layers and embossing.
I really went mad thinking what colours should I put into this and finally set my mind on white.

So here is my card!!!!

A Very HAPPY KARWA CHAUTH to all my SAHM friends!!!!

For my international friends, Karwa Chauth is a festival celebrated by married Hindu ladies all over the world. On this day, the wife keeps a fast for the husband, praying for his long life and good health. She will not eat anything for the whole day and at night after seeing the moon, takes the first sip of water from her husband's hand!!! So Romantic!!!!! The lady dresses up very nicely decking in beautiful sarees and adorned with jewellery, she puts henna on her hand. All the ladies sing and dance and its a sight to be seen when all of them in a family offer their prayers at night. Sometimes, even husbands fast with their wives!!!!! But thats just out of love!!!!

Now, to some craft talk.

This card is made with lots of affection cos, I specially love this Tilda with butterfly. The flowers are punch crafted and the PP is from Echo park and fabriano. Distressing is done with wild honey distress inks. I,ve used spellbinders for the frame and CB corner dies for the corners. The brown lace is a Marianne's Creatables Dies. These are great to work with as they give intricate cutting and embossing in one go. The tida is coloured with steadler colour pencils with Pie Lane glitter balls on her hair. I,ve added some pearls and shimmer and the yellow gingham ribbon if from my stash.

Challenges Entered:

I hope I get enough time next week to make more cards !
Enjoy Your Sunday!!!

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

The stamps are from Unity stamps and fiskars and from my stack of my own handmade stamps. Cuttlebug embossing folders and sweet plum from memento inks.
