Rakhi cards

Hello friends,
Last year quilled rakhi's were a great hit at Happymomentzz so I came up with rakhi cards this season!

These card bacgrounds are water coloured and I have started using all the stamps that I have added to my stack to this season & making some traditional style cards!

These rakhi's are made using scallop dies aren't they pretty??

 I bought some jute papers from Itsy Bitsy & see what I created with them some scalloped jute base for quilled swirls with felt die cuts !

added lil Diamonds as my son calls these glitter stones :)

So are you also making rakhi's do share would love to drop in :)

thanks !!

Explosion box - Musculine theme

Hello friends,
I finally made a Explosion box single layer for now ;) my first attempt ! Wanted to surprise my husband as he was bored of seeing me do only cards & scrapbooks so tried my hand on something different!!

I have choose  the colour yellow for this week & started working with this !I wanted to make it more masculine as my hubby complains I make everything in pink & purple ! I could have avoided the flowers but then when I want all stuffs relating to love how can I miss keeping flowers in it! 

I used all the words he often uses on the corners of the top corners !

Inside is a single layer & a treat box! Here I couldn't resist myself & went ahead with & purples !
Treat box is recycled from my empty double sided tape roll ;)
Here I have used pink & purple stars also :)

Here I have used dies to cut my photo's & behind every pic i have used stickers :)

The treat box opens up & was filled with my hubby's favorite chocolates & This one did surprise him ;) He has taken this to his office n it holds a special place on his table now !!!

Thanks a lot for dropping in !

Wherever you go, Go with all ur heart :)

Hello Friends,
I have made a simple CAS card on the theme "The Sky is the Limit"
Use at least one element in your card seen in the sky 
(So you can use the sky background, clouds, an airplane, a rocket,etc... actually the sky is the limit)

I made a good bye and good luck card here
 Reading "Sky is the limit " only colour blue came into my mind so here's my creation , I went on with blue water n boat & kept the sky pale with a sun n birds :)

Hand written sentiments
"wherever you go,
Go with all your heart "
Playing along -

I just love the clock I have added to the layout near the words "Love", 
simply to show how the time has passed brings in the vintage rustic look :)

Used the glittered Retroglam cardstock penelope glitter

The Itsy Bitsy Big Shot Party

Hello Friends , 

I was invited to be part of Big shot party by ITSY Bitsy  craft store... a party to celebrate and Itsy Bitsy becoming the sole distributor of Sizzix products in India. 15 like minded crafters from various corners of Bangalore got together at the Itsy Bitsy store in Banashankari .

I, myself was thrilled to be part of this fabulous event . The Itsy Bitsy team had done a fabulous job of setting up the space. Each crafter got a dedicated space along with a name tag for themselves and their Big Shot. 

 After a welcome talk by Itsy Bitsy owners Harish and Rashmi Closepet, 

 I was privileged to do a demo of a tag using the Itsy Bitsy Scallop Circle Die and I gotta say, it was a thrilled to do a  rocking demo!

The Sizzix Big Shot  is a Die Cutting Machine that lets you create perfect shapes and emboss beautiful textures, all with no wires or software. The Big Shot is an excellent die-cutting machine for beginners and more experienced crafters alike. Simply turn the handle to spin the smooth, heavy duty rollers on the machine, and let the machine work its magic on your paper, card or fabric as it passes through.

Design and create your own one-of- a- kind cards, invitations, scrapbook pages, home d├ęcor, fashion, altered art, quilting and more at the turn of a handle. You'll have professional quality creations at your fingertips.

Then it was time for cake and refreshments. Any guesses what the cake was? That's right - it was a BIG SHOT CAKE!! How cool is that! Rashmi and Harish cut the cake amidst party poppers and confetti and we all drooled over the rich chocolate hiding under all that fondant!

 It was time to start crafting and the group was given 2 hours to create their masterpeice! Here's a look at the fabulous layout I made at the Itsy Bitsy Big Shot Party!
