Explosion Box Card by Niharika Gupta, feat. Roseate Paper Collection

Hi everyone,

I am back here today with my newest creation and probably the last post of this year. This place is totally filled with inspirations. You must have observed that in my last few projects. And here is one more inspired from the surroundings here.
Its winter, and not a only a season, its a celebration! People light up their houses, decorate it for Christmas, with snow on the roofs, and on the little plants, sides of the road, lights make everything feel so warm! It seems to be a different magical world all together.
This Explosion Box Card made with the very beautiful Roseate collection, seems to capture the beauty completely. I tried to emblematise a house on a cold winter evening here, all set up for celebrations.
Cutting the smallest flowers and leaves from the paper pack was so much fun!
Don’t forget to catch up on the small video in the end to see the beauty of the flickering light in the house. It can be turned on or off from the outside of the box card.
Just loved making it.  Its for someone here to save her Christmas memories… Awww, I am waiting to know from her how she likes it. Till then, i would love to hear from you how you liked it. Have a great winter and an amazing holiday season! Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a very Happy and Prosperous New Year!
Love, Niharika.

A Lampshade decoupaged by Niharika Gupta, feat. Roseate DecoPatch Papers

Hi friends,

It has been a long time since I came here with a post. A break somehow turned into in lengthy absence. And now that I have started to bring my focus back, I will come up with some interesting posts in the coming days.

Well, I feel you can never go wrong when you think about designing something for your own home. To give a quick recharge to my energy, I tried to experiment on something I had never tried before – Decoupage. I always struggle to think on something which is not a “Scrapbook”, but trying hands on this amazing  paper from Bob n Betty was super fun. I had this plain white Lampshade at home and I used the beautiful floral arrangements from the Roseate Decopatch collection.

These papers give an amazingly smooth finish without much effort. I really liked the outcome and now this little thing brightens my room in the most elegant way.

Much thanks for stopping by.

Love, Niharika.

Mixed Media Layout by Niharika Gupta, feat. Decoupage Specialty Papers

Hi dear crafty friends,

I am not a decoupage artist but every time Bob n Betty comes up with a new release in Decoupage specialty papers, my heart skips a beat with the beautiful gorgeous designs. I cannot resist using them in scrapbooks or layouts. And so here I am with a new post, a layout on canvas using a sheet from the new Meadows collection.

I loved the flowers on this paper, and the butterflies are so magical. The moment I saw this design, this photograph was the first thing I thought of. This is one of my favorite pictures from our beach outings and I am so happy with the output.
The decoupage specialty papers are neither too thin, nor too thick and hence they are suitable for all types of projects. I just fussy cut the flowers and butterflies and layered them with minimal embellishments for this layout.
over to the pictures…

I hope you like it and find it inspiring. I am preparing for my summer break now and I hope you all have a crafty summer too.

Love & Hugs, Niharika.

You n I Cards : Video Tutorial by Niharika Gupta

Hi Everyone,
A warm welcome to the Bob n Betty blog. I hope the weekend gave you enough sparkle to make the rest of the week shine.

My post today, is inspired by all card makers here. I usually don’t make cards, but I sure wanted to try hands on making simple cards after seeing the beautiful elements of this paper collection. Apparently, every new paper release by Bob n Betty becomes my new favorite, but I am totally addicted to this particular paper pack You n I.
And guess what, I decided to make a tutorial for you all. Yes, its my first video tutorial and I hope it will inspire you to experiment more with this collection. There are so many unique and interesting elements in there, that you won’t need many extra embellishments to decorate your cards. Let me show you a few pictures first.

I have 3 cards here and tutorial for two of these. My apologies, but after finishing the third card, I realised that my camera got switched off half way through. But don’t worry, let me compensate it with a little crafty tip, yaay!
Crafty Tip:  If you have been in a situation when you opened your glue bottle, or acrylic paint, or chalk paint bottle, and after few days, it is hard to open them, because the lid has got jammed? Well, I have been there many times, and I ended up cutting the bottles, or piercing a hole and then covering with a tape, and what not. But you can simply avoid it with this simple hack. Next time, when you open such a bottle, just apply a bit of Vaseline to the lid before closing it (just a little would do). And trust me, you will never find yourself stuck again.

As you all know, Bob n Betty’s 3rd birthday celebrations have begun, and there are some very interesting gifts to be won. So don’t miss this amazing chance. You can check the complete post here : https://www.facebook.com/bobnbettyindia/posts/2016361245280940
There are many more contests to be announced. So guys, gear up and play along !
Without taking more time, you can now enjoy the videos.

Here are some close up pictures for you….


I shall look forward to see you soon with my next post.

Love

Mini Album by Niharika Gupta, designed with Cottage Blush

Hi Friends,
Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, making mistakes & having fun !! Isn’t it ? I am here today to share my inspiration post for you all, made with my very favorite ” Cottage Blush” collection by Bob n Betty.
I see so many beautiful creations in our group with these pretty papers, with such mesmerizing flowers, and wooden prints… i really cant stop thinking about the endless possibilities with this paper…
Now, after creating a few things with this paper pack, i was left with a few small cut papers which i really didn’t want to go waste…so lets have a look, where my imagination took me …


I made this mini album with very few left over pieces of pattern papers and the tag sheet. The album measures 4″ by 6″ with 4 pages inside. I have used Kraft card stock to go with it… You will see a lot of tags, flowers and elements cut from the papers for the decorations … I think the flowers there are so rich & bright, to give any page a real boost…   i just love the way the album turned out..
I really hope you like this mini album… do leave your comments below, will love to hear from you…


Thanks and Love,
Niharika.

Since a very long time, i wanted to create something for myself.. and this new paper pack by Bob n Betty, oh god… i am sure i can never have enough of this in my collection… it is the perfect paper pack , we have ever had. Perfect combination of colors, textures, beautiful flowers… everything is just so pretty and amazing about it… I am very sure you all will love it, and love it more…!

This is a 10″ hoop. I have used one paper on the back, and few more papers, to fussy cut the flowers. The element sheet in the pack  gives you enough options for tags, flowers and sentiments… I just loved them all…  I have used few products from Prima marketing like wooden embellishments, flowers, color bloom sprays and other art mediums for this frame.

A Pregnancy Memory Keeper, designed by Niharika Gupta with Googly Woogly Paper Pack

Hi there,

Niharika this side, with one more inspiring project for you all… with the very new Googly Woogly paper pack launched by Bob n Betty….

A mother’s joy begins when one more life is stirring inside, when a tiny heartbeat is heard for the very first time, & a playful kick reminds that she is never alone…

Trust me, this paper pack collection is ‘the best’ you can chose to make your Pregnancy Memory Keeper or Pregnancy journals… perfect colors, and the elements sheet is to die for… I just loved the idea of circular calendar,  to mark the most important milestones during the precious nine months, have a closer look….

The mommy-to-be can record her secret hopes, feelings, her checkup dates, names she might like before even knowing if she has a princess or a handsome charmer in her belly, her to-do list, even her mood swings…. yes.. & you get that all at the tip of your scissors with this paper collection…

in this album, i have started with the 1st trimester page, follwed by 2nd & 3rd trimester pages, and it ends with the arrival of the baby page. As the gender of the baby is not known, i could use the neutral shades there to go with baby girl or boy pictures.. & for the decoration as well, the elements sheets has it all in baby boy, baby girl, and neutral gender theme….

I have fussy cut the hanging monkey, stars, welcome banner, the swan, and arranged them to have a perfect decoration …

I hope you like this sweet pregnancy memory keeper… do let me know if you use any of these ideas in your work, would really really love to hear from you.. 🙂

Happy crafting guys, & thanks for stopping by….

Lots of love,
Niharika
