CraftyJC Challenge #15 – An inspiration from Kavya

Today we have a very special DT person with a beautiful inspiration for the colourful challenge.

Presenting to you Kavya – a 13 year old girl – which such creativity! :)

Thanks for the inspiration Kavya :)

I am Kavya N, a 13 year old crafter currently studying in Grade 8 at The Indian High School, Dubai.


I was into drawing and painting before but I discovered the world of crafting and cardmaking a year back and I am enjoying it a lot!! I created my blog last august to serve as a memory for my artworks but couple of weeks later, many crafters dropped by leaving their comments and suggestions which encouraged me a lot and I had my first exhibition last November, it was a huge success. Most of my cards are made using some simple materials which are available here to common folk....


I have made the card using materials from my stash. I have purple, pink, green and blue. The background paper was printed from online. The roses were made using a heart punch and the sentiment was printed.


I have used crepe paper for the ribbon and the rhinestones which were used were from my mom's stash. As I did not have a border punch, I layered two alpine punches to create the effect on the edge. I have used Derwent Pastel pencils and blocks instead of Distress inks.....

I hope you like it....=)

I was speechless when I read she is 13!! Wow! So young and such creativity! Love the colouring and the punch craft.

Awesome isn’t it :)

Do please leave some love for Kavya at her blog and come back and play along for this colourful holi challenge

Here is what Hussena has to say about this card

This time I have made a baby card which is meant for a dear friend who has just Delivered a Baby boy...After much thought I decided to make a quilled baby Aeroplane as the central theme for my card with baby clouds to complement it and the colors used are Red, Yellow ,Blue and Green the card is pretty simple  and  I have tried to keep the plane in the main focus.The quilling done here is called the" Beehive technique"and has become quite popular recently among all the quillers.

CraftyJC Challenge #15 – An inspiration by Poornima


After the fab V-day challenge DT inspirations, here is some yummy inspiration for the Holi by the uber talented Poornima.

Hi !! I am Poornima from Ajmer, Rajasthan.

I am a computer instructor by profession. I have been always associated with some or other sort of art. Gold Jewellery Designing is one of them. I started blogging in Nov. 2011.

Before that I was not aware of crafting tools & supplies. I used to make 3d projects more but nowadays also enjoying card making.

Paper jewellery making is one of my favourite craft. I love to experiment & learn new
techniques. I always challenge my myself to make something which I haven’t tried yet.

For the current challenge ,I chose bright colours -yellow, red, green & purple to make a vibrant card.

I am playing with so many bright colours for the first time. This layout was in my mind & I think current theme is apt for it. I have used a girl digi image with these bright colours to combine holi colourful theme & girl power(becoz of Women’s day).
The text is handwritten. I wish all the participants a good luck & very bright n colourful

My oh my.. aren’t these colours just sooo wonderfully vibrant!!

Please leave some love at Poornima’s blog and do come back and play with us again for this Challenge #15: Many Colours Holi
