Iron Craft #10

Hey everyone! Welcome to Iron Craft! Its the 10th episode today. Can you believe how fast time flies??!! You will want to read this one till the end too for another giveaway! 🙂 On to the challenge…


TaheerahAtchiaHow many times has it happened to you that you met a fellow papercrafter in exactly the same profession as you? NEVER for me until I met Taheerah! I found her blog while blog-hopping around the blogosphere looking for new and interesting blogs. Glad I did because she has some serious talent!

Taheerah has a looong list of published works. Did you know she was a finalist in the 2012 Gallery Idol? She has quite a few challenge wins to be proud of and has designed for some really cool brands too!

I love hoe creative her work is. And she makes some very geeky cards periodically! And she has really great handwriting!

You should check out her blog if you haven’t already! And if she sent you here… WELCOME 🙂


Curious to see what we picked for ingredients? Here you go…

We are playing with a really cool set from WPlus9 today! Its called Chantilly Trim. Its such an elegant and beautiful set!

And because we wanted to make things harder more challenging for ourselves, we picked this sketch from Gayatri‘s pinterest board (Hiya Gayatri!).

Read on to see how we each interpreted the sketch….


Here are our cards. Mine on the left and Taheerah’s on the right…


Love the gold, white and lace on Taheerah’s card! So elegant! And there are sequins!! I count at least 3 trends in the card… can you spot more?

For my card I was inspired by summer. So its all bright and cheery with lots of bling. All those little and large circles in the sketch reminded me of a spray of water droplets. Thats what I put in this card!

Hope you liked our cards today! We had a lot of fun challenging ourselves making them 🙂

Now for the giveaway! WPlus9 is sponsoring a $15 store credit for one lucky winner!! Thankyou WPlus9!!! 🙂

Just leave a comment here till 23:59 EST on May 9 telling me what you like about the Iron Craft challenge!

Thanks for dropping by! And don’t forget to check out Taheerah’s card on her blog if you haven’t already!!

    *Love* how we were thinking along similar lines with our cards – freaky, no? Must be that similar brain of ours, lol!

    I had such a blast with this Challenge! Thanks so much for inviting me to participate!!


  2. Miriam Prantner

    That was a really tough sketch! I’m so impressed with both of these cards! It’s kind of a tableau, but I love them! Thanks for the chance to win that stamp set too! I’ve had my eye on it!


  3. Paulina

    I agree with Miriam, this was a tough sketch, but you both did a great job at it!

    I love the idea behind the Iron Craft- it’s so fun to see what special guest and technique/ set you bring every week, Chaitali!


  4. Gayatri Murali

    Oh wow! Both cards are just wow! That is one cool sketch. Great take on the sketch both of you. Love how you both used just a little of those gorgeous lace stamps. That flower is just awesome, Taheerah! I am so glad I played this challenge first. It is so cool. I have some time tomorrow and let me see if I can play this sketch using the same stamp set.

    Chaitali, I love how I get to meet a super talented creative guest on your blog every Monday!!! Great cards from both of you! You picked an excellent layout!
