HAPPY DIWALI

Wishing you and your family a very Happy Diwali and a prosperous year ahead…!!
Diwali is one of the most important Hindu festival – also known as the festival of lights…since Diwali is always on a no moon day,after the evening prayers everyone lights up their homes with lots of oil lamps,candles and other light displays…every family has their own set of rituals and celebrations to make this festival special…
My Diwali card is a shaker card….the card base is plain white and so is the top layer….I have die cut the top layer using the largest stitched rectangle die….then stamped the paisley stamp repeatedly using Ranger cheese puff dye ink….
I cut out a rectangular section from the top layer and adhered a gold scalloped frame around the cut out area…I then added a piece of acetate from the back…then using craft foam,I created the shaker section,added sequins and closed it with a piece of ┬ácardstock…this was adhered to the card base and then the top layer…
I created the traditional oil lamp using glitter and foil cardstock and added it on top of the shaker window…the sentiment has simply been printed out,cut to size and placed on the card as well…I have also added a few tiny red rhinestones on the card..
Thank you for visiting my blog today….Hope your day is happy and blessed..!!

Indian Themed Paisley & Watercolour Card

This paisley stamp is among the first few I bought when I was starting out…..and I love it and use it a lot….but I don’t think I have ever made a bright and colourful card like this one before using this stamp…reminds me of the hand printed scarves I had seen in Rajasthan,India…
The card base is plain bright blue and the top layer is made from Ranger watercolor paper….I first stamped the images randomly using Versamark ink and then heat embossed them using black embossing powder…once that was done,I coloured them all in with Peerless watercolors…
Next,I die cut the word ‘Happy’ from blue and gold glitter cardstock and layered them before placing on the card….the word ‘Birthday’ is also die cut from the same gold cardstock but instead of using the die cut I have used the negative and placed a strip of blue cardstock underneath..I have used sequins is various colours to decorate the card…
Hope you like this card as much as I do…
