With a new year, we have two new members joining our Design Team. You lovely people have already met Isha Tripathi and it's now time to introduce you to our other new Lulu Pooh...

Indira Tanwar

We are sure many of you already know her but still, allow us to tell you more about her. :)

Indira is an MBA in International Business & Marketing and works with an IT MNC. She is passionate about crafts and loves to "Create" something in her free time. Indira has been crafting since childhood and her inspiration has been her mother, who is a very good painter herself.

Indira enjoys creating beautiful cards and embellish them with Quilling and Punch Craft. She loves making different types of flowers for her projects. She likes to try out different kind of crafts and techniques. She is also very fond of collecting boxes of various shapes and tends to use a lot of waste material in her work and recycles/upcycle them.

She feels her style has evolved over time and she learns a lot from fellow crafters. Her favorite technique is Quilling and Punch craft.

You can check out all of her wonderful creations at her blog 'Arty Sorts.' So head on over there and see her gorgeous creations.

Enough introductions!! Let us hear from the lady herself!! :)

Hi everyone!! This Indira here and is my first post as DT member of Lulupu. 

It's a gatefold card that I have made on valentine theme. I have used MS Lace punch for the gatefold and weaved ribbon through it.

Once the ribbon is untied, this is how the inside of the card looks like. I have layered three hearts made from Tigerlily paper pad from Kaiser Craft. I hand-stitched the the middle of the hearts to secure them together.

The layered heart is a mini card that opens upwards. The message can be written on the inside.

Hope you like the card. Do join us for the "Love is in the air" Challenge and stand a chance to win a stamp set from Kaisercraft.

Indira.. :)
