CAS Spring card

This is a rather simple spring card that I made using one of my spring stamp set. I have stamped the branch thrice to get a bigger branch look and stuck punched blooms randomly.
I have created a lattice background with MS Scoreboard.

Cascading Card - With innovative use of punches

Hi. I had made this card as DT for Lulupu blog. I have used lots of punches for this card and I have some tutorials below to share with you.

The card is a cascading card with animal/forest theme.
 I made a tag to write message. This tag can be placed in a pocket at the back of the card.
Some close-ups..
 These are the various punches used in this card.

A Tall Card

As you can see I am loving these tall n slim cards and I have made quite a few of them. I was really bored with those 4x6 cards and wanted to try something different but not a complicated one.
The papers used are from K and Co. bought from Priya's store. The die-cut swirl is from Ujjwal. I made the bloom using my daisy punches and layering them.
Hope you like my card. Thanks a for visiting. Have a great day!

Movie Inspired Card

DISCLAIMER: "Although I have made a card for the movie 'Gupt' it does not in any way mean it is my fav movie"  LOL :)

I had this piece of poster with me from a furniture company's brochure which I thought to use. I have tried to get a grunge look for the card keeping in mind the story line of the movie and used stamped elements which reflect the same.

I am planning to give this card to an ardent Bobby Deol fan :)

March 12, 2013


Hi All. I was MIA for some time as I was unwell. Before that I was very busy with office work and tours. Finally some time back I got the chance to look at all the lovely challenges going on around us and decided to play along.
Only after I made this card I realised that blue and brown color combo looks so nice. I am planning to make manny more cards with this combo.

Here is a front look of the card. I have used PP scraps sent by Mallika during a PP swap. The floral border and die cut behind flowers were sent by Juhi as a RAK. The die cut used behind the sentiment was sent by Anita. I like how beautifully all the RAKs sent by fellow bloggers have come together for this card :)

The flowers are handmade. I have a tutorial for these flowers here. Hope you like my card.

Thanks a lot Snehal :), you know what it is for ;)

Lulupu Challenge#10 ~ Birthday Special Blog Hop Day 4

Hello Everyone! turns 1 this month and we are all happy and celebrating!

I joined the Lulupu team in January this year and believe you me, I am loving every bit of it.
I have learned so much from my fellow DT members and worked with the best of craft supplies.
I wish a very bright future for Lulupu and hope it becomes one of the most loved craft stores in India!

March is going to be fun at Lulupu - The Craft Lounge! There will be many giveaways and tonnes of fun so do ensure you follow Lulupu all around FB, Twitter, Pinterest and Youtube! To kick start the celebration we have a Lulupu Design Team Blog Hop along with the monthly challenge. So if you have landed at this post just now, you can start HERE and join us in this fun filled week !

So here I am sharing my project for Lulupu Challenge #10 - Let's Celebrate.

As the challenge suggests, we were to take inspiration from a fellow Design Team member and create a project that celebrates.... well... just about anything. My inspiration was Snehal Watwe's Center fold card.

I love this fold and Snehal has made a really sweet baby card using this fold. 
I have used only the fold as an inspiration for my card and designed it in my own way.

For this card, I have mainly made use of the beautiful Tigerlilly Paper Pad from Kaisercraft which is available at Lulupu store.
The tutorial will help you understand better how I used the paper pad on the card.

Since the theme was celebration, I made a Birthday card with cake for Lulupu's first b'day. Happy Birthday dear Lulupu!! :)

Continue the Lulupu Design Team Blog Hop with the Snehal Watwe tomorrow on 6th March. Also here is the list to help you track the blog hop ending on 9th March.

Cute Animals Card

Hi there. Today I am sharing a card which is quite different from my usual type. It is a tall card and I have done stamping also to try out this new stamp set that I purchased :) 
I have kept the card pretty simple and added a punched border on sides. The orange panel is stuck using foam tape, so it has this 3D feel to it.
I would also like to share some of my recent wins at various blogs for my Shabby Chic Cart. I am overwhemled with such great comments and appreciation for my project.
