October Challenge for Peek-a-boo Designs

Hello everyone! It's the first of October which means its time foe another fun challenge at the Peek-a-boo Designs blog! October is also the first anniversary month of the Peek-a-boo Designs so this month's challenge is extra special!
So without further ado here are the details:
October Challenge Recipe
Main Ingredients 
- 1/4 cup of the color red
- 1/4 of gold as well
- Number 1 - Since we celebrate our first birthday in October
Garnishing (the twist ) : Use atleast one of the the following
- stenciling
- 3D Layered projects
- Make your own background with stamps
- dash of glitter
Directions :
Make a delicious project using all the ingredients above and adding atleast one garnish (the twist) of your choice.
Participants with a project with an Indian touch since we celebrate Diwali and other festivals in this month will get some bonus points ..
Here's my take on the Challenge - 
I've used Dies and stamps from the October Release for my card. This release is just perfect for making traditional  Indian designs. You can make wedding invitations, Diwali cards and much more!
I've made a wedding invitation as the colors red and gold are traditional Indian wedding colors. I've used glitter as my garnish. 
I hope you like my card. Do hop over to the Peek-a-boo designs blog for more inspiration from the DT. And don't forget to enter the challenge, there are some exciting prizes to be won!

Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Hello everyone! I'm back with my second coffee themed card for Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.
#fall2016clh stamper's anonymous Simon Says Stamp Stampember coffee themed card
I created a watercolor splattered background in fall colors with Ken Oliver's Color Bursts. Spritzed some Lindy's Stamp Gang shimmer to add some interest. I stamped the Stamper's Anonymous coffee cup on the background and on another piece of watercolor paper which I fussy cut and stuck on the background panel with double sided foam tape.

Fall Coffee Lover's Bloghop - Kat Scrappiness Design Team

Hello everyone! I so excited to be participating in the Fall Coffee Lover's Bloghop as a part of the Kat Scrappiness Design Team. 
I wasn't really a coffee person until recently. A few weeks back my hubby suddenly decided that he wants to weigh, grind and brew his own coffee and mine too :) and now I'm hooked!
I've created a fall coffee themed card using the super cute "Newton Loves Coffee" set from Newton's Nook. 
Newton Love's Coffee - Newton's Nook Stamps
If you look closely you'll find that it is a shaker card, the coffee cup is a shaker element filled with "Espresso Mix" sequins from Kat Scrappiness. The name of the sequin mix says it all, it's just perfect for coffee and fall themed cards!
You can check out some awesome inspiration from the rest of the Kat Scrappiness Design Team here.

Friends are flowers that never fade

Hello everyone! Hope you are having a great Sunday! I am having a great time spending one on one quality time with my little one while my hubby is away on business travel, if you know what I mean :)) !!! I did manage to complete this card in spite of my 4 year old constantly trying to sabotage my project...

I've used my very first Taylored Expressions stamp set for this card, I love the set and quality is just top notch! So happy with my purchase :)
I colored the tulips with Zig Clean Color Real brush markers and added some clear shimmer with Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen.
