Storage boxes

Hi Everyone, before I start sharing about my new creation would like to share something here my husband and me have moved to US we now stay in Santa Clara California. I moved in here in April first week still settling down setting up our new home, shopping for furniture, kitchen etc.. and in between I did some craft shopping too in Joann's there was 40% sale going on so bought a few dies n fiskars paper trimmer(had one earlier I left it in India) the store had a huge collection of ribbons, paper(mostly DCWV), MS punches and fabrics.
I am setting up my craft table so found a solution to store my stamps, dies, embossing folders from PootlesPapercraft. I have used complete A4 size sheets, We R Memory pattern papers, stamped and fussy cut the flower, wooden embellishments and ribbons from stash.
 This is how I have used them


 Entering these for ColorConception Challenge #10- Anything but cards and CraftersCorner Challenge #15- Go 3D. Now I am off to browse some more ideas on storage :)

TLGT #1

My friend Somdatta started a new crazy venture called Tails Love Gifts Too. Its an online portal for pet gifting. Last year december when she first told me about this idea first thing that came to my mind is like who wants to give gifts for pets coz they wont understand it and also I m not a pet lover. Later on when we discussed and explored about it I really loved the idea and I was in for the challenge. 
The main USP of TLGT is gift packing and I was given the responsibility of designing the gift boxes. Initial few weeks went on deciding the size of the box, whether to use paper, cane, carton boxes, ribbon etc, etc...
Finally we came to conclusion to go for paper boxes and a couple of cane baskets. Since paper boxes are lighter in weight and would be good for shipping.
Koyal (Somdatta) and I started researching, browsing on the designs. I really want to thank Pinterest as it helped us consolidate our designs it's a house of inspiration.
 Each box is carefully designed considering the theme. You can see on TLGT website there are different themes and hats-off to koyal who has put so much of effort in forming the themes and what products need to go in each box. So now I had to really scratch my head while designing the boxes coz the box design should match the theme and the products going inside it.
So in coming few posts I will be sharing all the box designs n how I came with the idea.
You may have already seen the designs on Facebook page or TLGT site. But will be seeing it first time on my blog
This one is a Cat hamper- welcome home kitty.Can you see the small kitty prints on the pattern paper it has some small bunch of flower on it so on the top I have a flower which goes with it other supplies used are doily, cardstock, momento markers, dies.
 Box size: 91/2*51/2*4 inches
To know more about whats inside the box and also if you want buy the hamper go hop to TLGT site and welcome a kitty :)
Here is another Cat Hamper-Just go purrrr. This hamper has yummy treats for cats, the patterned paper had some bright colored cats in green and blue to match that have used bright green/blue strips and some red flowers have kept the lid quite simple for this box since the patterned paper is bright.
Box size: 71/2*51/2*4 inches
To buy the hamper go to TLGT site and treat your kitty :)

Plain kissing technique

Today i am sharing a card i made for the colorconceptions challenge #6 - Stamping technique
In this card i  have used Plain kissing technique (or smooch or naked kissing there are many terms)
Basically you just kiss 2 stamps before stamping onto the paper
 Have a closer look at the stamping
Here are the stamps and inks i used. For this technique pigment, chalk inks are best. i have used green dye ink as i dont have green shade pigment ink (you can see the kissing effect with dye ink is not clear)
I inked the flower stamp with versa color grape ink and first stamped on the hero arts happy definition stamp and than on the paper.

Decoupage after a long time

Bought these mdf's a while ago and bring it to use now 
Papers are from Mesmerizing India collection designed by Divya Thallap
The papers are really beautiful.. loved it coz all are of Indian theme
First i made a tray. Have used 2 sheets of paper since the tray is bigger in size. The papers come in 12*12 size while aligning got a few bubble. But at the end was able to clear the bubbles and loved the end product. Used generous coats of mod podge for protection. The tray looks much better in real than the pic here


I also tried making this Napkin holder 

 and Pen stand. This paper is from Brilliant Blues collection

Here is the facebook link to see more collection of papers
