Thanks (Fall inspired thank you card)

Hello guys
I have a card to share with you all today....this is a Thank you card keeping the upcoming Thanksgiving in mind. I have made this card as a DT inspiration for Lets Craft and Create Blog where the theme this month is ANYTHING GOES + option FALL COLOURS/THANKFUL. Below is my take on this fun theme...... To participate in the on going challenge, please click HERE
I am putting my card up at following challenges:
  1. HLS November anything goes with dies challenge  - Used Curvy Leaf dies from Elizabeth Craft designs 
  2. Scrapy Land Challenge #78 - Anything goes - Used Elizabeth craft design Curvy leaves die
  3. The Ribbon girl November Card challenge- Anything Goes
  4. The Sisterhood of crafters -Let the Sparkles Fly- I have used the frosting powder with loads of sparkle in it from Papericious - Rajni Chawla's Frosting Powder
  5. Word Art Wednesday - Week 308 - 309 - Anything Goes
  6. Allsorts Challenge Blog Week 442- Glitter - I have used the frosting powder with loads of sparkle in it from Papericious - Rajni Chawla's Frosting Powder

I started with a watercolor cardstock cut to A2 size panel and did some distress ink blending to achieve a seamless background. I have used Spiced Marmalade, Crushed Olive, Fossilized Amber, Vintage Photo and Abandoned Coral distress inks. I spritzed it with some water and then lifted some color off the panel.
The leaves were randomly placed an diecut using the Curvy leaves dies from Elizabeth Craft designs on my bigshot. Then...was the fun part......using versamark, I added some Rajni Chawla's Frosting Powder on the diecut leaves as well as the front panel....randomly and heat set it. It is so much fun to achieve the frosting and all the shimmer and shine in just one step......love it. I also applied glossy accents to few of the leaf diecuts.
I then added my front panel to a white textured cardstock from ItsyBitsy and trimmed the panel 1/8"from all the sides. I mounted this panel on my A2 size white cardbase using some white craft foam to give the card some dimension.
The leaves were shaped and added back to the panel from where they were diecut. Finished my card with the Thanks sentiment from Die namics and some Mudra Craft sequins. I diecut the sentiment 4 times from the same white cardstock and piled them on each other to obtain a dimensional sentiment. 
On the inside, I added the 1/8' sliver I cut initially from the panel...to add a little interest to the inside.
That finishes my card for today...I hope you liked it. Here is a small video clip to see the magic of the frosting powder on this card....

Hello all you wonderful people
Today I have a mixed media canvas for you all...... its Lippan Kaam in my style. For all of you who do not know about Lippan Kaam, here is a little introduction....
Lippan Kaam or Chittar Kaam or Mud Relief work is a traditional mural art from the salt desert of Kutch. Its something the locals have been doing since ages to decorate the walls of their huts on the exterior as well as interior.
So, here is my take on this art form...to read the full post along with a video tutorial, please visit the ItsyBitsy blog by clicking HERE.

Gaddi Boxes/ Money Boxes/ Gift Boxes

Hello guys
Today I have few boxes for you. I made 60 of these as a custom order for a wedding ceremony. Though the original purpose of this was to accommodate money bundles.....I however feel it will be an apt gift box or chocolate box. Here are the 3 designs I made...I took the pictures at the very end when only few boxed were left to be packed.
To make these boxes, I have used 300 gsm white cardstock. The beautiful printed papers are from ItsyBitsy from L'Amour collection.
The the ribbons, chipboard embellishments and few flowers are from Itsybitsy as well. I have gold heat embossed the chipboard embellishments using Ranger Gold embossing powder. The big roses and poppies, rose buds and micro roses are from Crafters Corner.I have also added diecut leaves using Curvy Leaves Die from Elizabeth craft designs.

The box has ribbon as well as magnetic closures at the sides...because it was a money box...I added extra closure.


That is it from me today....I hope you all liked it. Thank you for visiting me and have a great week ahead.
