Handmade Diwali Card with Distress Inks

Hi everyone. I am sure everyone is soaking in the festive fervor and so am I... all the colorful things around inspire me create to some quick and bright diwali cards.

I made this card using Wild honey DI. I have stamped the doily design using DI. The doily print is not perfect and it rather resembles a sunburst or halo effect. This is the kind of effect I was looking for. I have used stickers from Pie Lane on these circles and the smaller ones are from Hobby ideas. The sentiment sticker is a local buy.

Black and White Anniversary Card

Hi folks. Here is a quick post to share a card I made particularly for Sindhu's challenge.
Its a Black and White Anniversary Card. The sentiment is a digi. The couple silhouette is from internet. I traced it and handcut it. The black and white border is from Itsy Bitsy. I have added some lace below the border to add a touch of elegance.

Quilled Name Plate - Angak

This is another quilled name plate that I made on order recently. Since it is for a boy, the color palette is mainly blue. I didn't want to keep it simple and straight forward so I have overlapped the alphabets and arranged in this manner.

The work is this name plate is very minute and it took me more time to create this as compared to other one I made for NAVIKA

 Few close-ups...

Quilled Name Plate - NAVIKA

Hi friends! I am very excited to share this Quilled Name Plate that I made on order. I had very little time in hand to finish this owing to work and festivities, but I am glad I could deliver it on time.

Though I have made many Name plates for kids in past, this was my first quilled name plate for a kid. I had made one quilled name plate for a couple using bee hive technique. But I have tried this type of quilling technique for the first time. I would like to thank few bloggers whose work inspired me.

So here goes the Quilled Name Plate for baby Navika.

Accordian Card

Hi friends. I made this accordian card for my mom dad's anniversary. It is inspired by 2 cards: Isha's card at Lulupu and Monica Jot's Card .I absolutely love their style and work.
The pictures were taken in a hurry and they do not reflect the real colors and beauty of the card. I have distressed the papers with broken china and peacock feathers ink and it looks very nice when you see it in real. For pink, I have used worn lipstick distress ink.

There are many layers on the front side of the card. First is the PP, then die-cut, silver net and then the die-cut rose image.

A close-up of the roses. This is from Lucy Cornwell's paper pack [Love it!!] I applied a bit of silver stickles on them for a shimmery look. The paper pack and diecuts are from Nupur's store.

Here is an inside view of the card. The sentiment stamps are from Fiskars.

Magic Explosion Box - Cake

Hi everyone! I am back with a brand new post today and some happy news!

This is an explosion box that I made few days back. It's a pretty pink box with a cute cake inside. What's interesting about the cake is that the base is a platic scoop that comes with milk/protein powder boxes. I just cut off the handle and covered it neatly with fabric lace, plastic lace and embellished it with fabric roses and pearls/crystals. Easy peasy, isn't it? :)
