Wishing you blessings

I  managed to create a One Layered  card and that too without any coloring !

I got some beautiful stamps from "Bee Crafty store" from their beautanicals series ,the flowers are large and beautifully illustrated.For a change I decided to use these wildflowers silhouette stamp first than florals

I  was aiming for a light and organic background and used LSG magicals ( bavarian brown & cowbanga copper ) for it. It didn't turn out as i expected it to be ,still I went ahead with the stamping.The Gold heat embossed sentiment comes from Hero arts stamp set.

This card looks better in real ,i could not capture the Beautiful shimmers of magicals and cloudy weather didn't help either.  Please tell  me this card qualifies as CAS !

Fight for focus !

Would you believe me if I say this card started as a one layered card?
I had this exact layout in my mind when I printed this beautiful digital stamp (Stamplorations ).I took time watercolouring this large bloom with liquid watercolors (CrafTangles) and when i was satisfied I stamped the bold birthday (Stamplorations) and it looked too plain to me!
(I am not a CAS girl, proved once again !!)So i slit the panel into two and glued them at different levels which looked like this.

Thats when I realized that bloom and bold words were fighting for focus !! I should have used lighter ink for stamping.( Sorry for the dull pictures..cloudy weather !)

So used vellum to tone down the words.

Clean and layered describes this card better what do you think ?

Diwali Blog Hop 2019

Blog hop graphics designed by Raga Senthil
Wishing you all a very Happy Diwali ! Its celebration time and we decided to celebrate it the crafters way, by organising a Bloghop with wonderful prizes ! We have 13 Awesome sponsers and its open for our International friends too.

Diwali is the biggest Indian festivals which is celebrated for 5 days and each day has its own significance customs may vary according to different regions.There is no derth of sweets and savories ,we decorate our homes with marigold flowers,rangoli ,earthen lamps ,lanterns ,series ,new cloths ,gifts  Apart from all these What I like most is its connection with Ayurveda ! Yes ,it prepares our mind and body for coming winter with "abhyangsnan " Nothing short of a spa treatment ! The days will become shorter and nights longer so the custom of earthen lamps. You will know more about as you hop along .Now the main purpose,sharing the crafts..
cards first .

This one is for my little friends who love  bursting crackers.

The kangaroos  are digital images (freebies from Create a Smile)
Its common custom to gift cash in India so envelopes are always needed.

I have used Sigma cardstock by one of our sponsers Papericious for the base envelope and the bg is using Liquid watercolors from another sponser Craftangles .

I found this bgs while cleaning my cupboard ,if you want to know how i made them then check this post.

Card Drive
As we are neck-deep in our celebrations, surrounded by our families, it would really be ungrateful if we miss to remember all those Real-life heros who make it possible for us to enjoy all this securely and fearlessly, in our homes. As a token of our gratitude and to acknowledge their   sacrifice for us, we sent out handmade cards to a few Army and Air Force units all over our country, as a part of this hop. A small effort from our side to convey that they are in our thoughts and prayers.
This was made possible by our teammie Ishani , who herself is a part of the Indian Air Force family. These are cards sent .

The circle stamps are from Spellbinders.

I have used 'distress cardstock ' launced by Crafter’s Emporio ,one of our sponsers .It is 270 gsm thick which makes it perfect as card base and card fronts too.Good for many techniques as well I went for heat embossing.

I have used LSG magicals to create the background on all the cards . Thats all from me.
