Guest Designer-Deepti Malik

Hello there!  Are you enjoying this month's challenge? I have another amazing guest designer to inspire you today! Not only she is uber talented, she is also very generous to do a giveaway (squeal!!) with our followers/players (details at the end of this post)!
...a little birdie told me that you love STAMPS (wink).

I got to know Deepti Malik through her colorful creations in a few online challenges, later I had the pleasure of working along with her as part of the CAS-ual Fridays DT. Deepti is an artist! She has awesome stamping techniques and mad skills. Deepti illustrates and has been designing stamps for STAMPplorations

 In case you didn't know, Deepti teaches Watercolor Cards Made Simple
over Craftsy. If you love the look of watercolors, you will totally enjoy this class. 

Without further ado, here is Deepti's first card.


Deepti: For my Thanks card, I decided to create a geometric background on the card base using a combinations of Dies (CAS-ual Friday's Funky Square Tag and Shuffle Fri-dies and Sizzix circle dies).

Deepti: I inked each of these dies cuts and layered them on the card base. For the sentiment, I used the Thanks die cut from PTI. Here in the card the geometry lies in the repetition of pattern and color.
For my Enjoy card, I wanted to focus on the concept that geometry is all about random shapes and for that I decided to create a patterned paper panel (using Teresa Collins Souvenir paper pad) by cutting patterned paper in various shapes and adhering them together. 

Deepti:To embellish it I heat embossed the lotus on vellum and fussy cut it. 


Deepti: For the sentiment I used sentiment diecut from PTI and a wood veneer butterfly (Studio Calico). The stamp set used in my second card is "Lotus love" that I designed for my Stamp line "Dee's Artsy Impressions" which is being manufactured under the umbrella of STAMPlorations.


Deepti: I am super excited to be joining the Virginia's View challenge. This is one on my favorite challenge and for that reason I thought wouldn't it be fun to add a giveaway :) I am giving away my Lotus love set to one random winner from all the entries (the more entries you have, the more chances you get). Thank you so much,Virginia, for having me over :)


How about that!? I am so loving her graphic interpretations and artsy designs.
Please stop by Deepti's blog and leave her some love! There are still a lot of time to enter the challenge! Hope to see you create!

Squeeeeeeal! I love Deepti's work so much, even enrolled in her Craftsy class ecause Virginia touted it. These cards have her name written all over them. Innovative, colorful with meticulous execution. Can't beat that! Lucky you, Virginia, to get her to guest design. I even have her stamp sets. I mean, who doesn't lotus, lily pads and birthday designs?
