Guest Designer - Pooja

Hello friends!
It's me Jaya here on the Lulupu blog.
Today we have as our Guest designer a very talented lady who never stops to astonish us with her outstanding creativity! A well known name in the world of paper crafts and a beautiful person by heart. One of my very favourites.
 Please welcome Pooja from Reusing,Cards & Quilling.
 Let's hear it from the lady herself.

Hello Friends!  I am very happy to share my contribution as GD for Lulupu’s Current challenge .Thanks to Karuna and Lulupu Team for this honor. Jaya has challenges us to create anything as long as it has minimum 3 Washi tape along with a geometric shape/readymade embellishment. I have had washi tape rolls since long and never used it properly and had it not been for this challenge I they still won’t have seen light of the day! Thanks for this interesting theme Jaya J

I made this card with a “music lover” in mind .Started with drawing the headphone and fussy cut it keeping mobile/iPod shaped window in middle, decorated it with hounds tooth washi tape. For the background I used water colour paper and painted circles freehand with water colours and outlined with blue gel pen, drew the phone/iPod and outlined with black gel pen, stamped music notes in light blue memento ink and used music notes washi tape to go with the theme. Popped the earphone with foam tape on water coloured panel and adhered the panel on handmade card base with foam Tape. I used alphabet stickers for words and matted them on washi tape strips.


I have a small pictorial to create washi tape flowers, dahlia fold style. I had seen such flowers with pattern paper .Here I used washi tape to create my own pattern paper.

I made a card using these flowers. The bouquet background is created using stencil and Mini Distress Inks from Kit #4 that I received from Lulupu. I have used peach colored handmade paper for card base. The sentiment is hand cut from thick paper, coated with glue , covered it with Martha Stewart loose glitter  and sealed with Sakura Gloss medium. Adhered it on a Vellum Strip

I hope you enjoyed my cards and tutorial. DO check my Blog Reusing,Cards & Quilling (

  10. i am very impressed with your blog. Best solution for Indian decor to add something unique to your home, the beautiful Hindu Puja Thali beautiful Copper thali design can easily be used as a display piece, even if you are not of the Hindu faith. For a bit of background, this piece is known as a thali, a traditional Indian serving tray.
