Autumn challenge!

Hey dearies,

What a beautiful weather we have here in the Capital in India! Its been raining cats and dog and except the broken down roads and crazy traffic am enjoying the weather so much! So many Blogs have these autumn challenge which was inspiring enough to use some pretty autumn colours like green, orange, yellow, red and foliage and leaves :). For the first time i made a coordinated envelop for 2 cards here. I so wish there was an easier and better way to make envelops :( This took me so much time measuring n all :( My finance requested for a card to give to his big boss who is leaving the organisation for good. so i kept the card clean and simple too. I used the cuttlebug garden swirls die cut for the sentiments and loved it! Any tips on how to paste them without getting messy with glue all over? The stamping is with Inkadinkado stamps and memento inks. Yep am still on with some resist technique hang over!

So here are the Autumn challenges am participating!

Everybody challenge # 109

Where there is love there is laughter!

Hey hey!
Am back with my second post of the day. Unbelievable! Thanks to all the cleaning up. It started with the CardPattern Sketch#81 and ended up being a part of many more challenges. I was surprised to see the final outcome! I have never made anything like this and for a change the card turned out to be so neat.Lots of stamping and distressing, some stamp resist technique and cuttlebug dies. I loved making my own background using a flower stamp and then sponging cocoa brown all over! I so enjoyed trying all new things in this one!!

This card goes in many challenges!! Yipee!!

Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #71

He le le lo!

Ha in some good mood. I finally managed to clean my second room where i had stacked my craft supplies. Arranged everything by type in various boxes. 3 hours spent just in cleaning and arranging! And when i sat down to make some cards i realised how easy this had made my life!

I took out my stamping box - as i call it. Out came my new Memento inks,my new flourish stamps from inkadinkado and new versamark. (I love saying new again n again for now... plz excuse :P). Not to forget the border punch!I have used my 'newly' learnt stamping resist technique

I have been wanting to participate inMidnight Madness Challenge ever since i became a follower. I love the DT cards they come up every week with. So this time i decided to give this week's challenge a try. They had a choice with 2 sketches and i went with an clean and easy one.
And i absolutely loved the results. Ok before i get too excited. Let me share it!

And yes since i used lotsa Embossing, this card also goes for the folwoing challenges:
