STAMPlorations October & HLS CAS Challenge!

Heyyaaa Sweet Crafters!! :)
I know, I am super late for these challenges! I was out of town and just came back with a newly found mojo! :)

I had gone to Bangalore- they call it the Silicon Valley of India. I fell in love with this beautiful green metro immediately (though I cannot actually understand the local language there-which is Kannad) ;)

Anyway, I will tell you more about it after I show you my card! I came up with a card inspired by this month's STAMPlorations Sketch. I like using pink with darker colors. :)



 
and
 

U would be surprised to see that heart because I have used Dee's Artsy impression Stamp - Balloons & Banners for the heart - It is the heart shaped balloon paper pieced! I have used different patterned papers to make an ombre effect out of pink! :)

I have utilized the negative space by adhering those hearts over the double sided glue tape. I don't have dies. So, I have hand cut those curved rectangles..I managed it well, didn't I? Those could have looked perfect with dies... :(
I have used STAMPlorations - Trendy Feathers for the sentiment with Black Soot DI. :)

The yummy set has arrived from STAMPlorations- Yuletide Cheer ! I am looking forward to make some crafty things out of them! :) Doesn't that stamp look just gorgeous?

I am also entering for Happy Little Stampers- Paper Piecing

Well, back to my Bangalore trip!  I happened to be lucky to have met one of our well known crafter in blog-land -Tanvi Shah from Paper Fantasees ! :)
We went to an art exhibition at "Soul Sante-Bangalore" and she had a wonderful stall exhibited! There were cards, Decoupage boxes, albums, jewellery boxes, what not? I was amazed and very much inspired.. Would love to try new things in Craft! :)

Glad to have met you Tanvi, YOU are one amazing crafter!And how could I miss the selfie? :)


Thanks a lot for stopping by ladies! :)
Hugs xx
