Inspired by... Ujjwal

Hi Friends and welcome to this times' Fascinating Friday Feature... It's Hussena here as are very proud to introduce to you a very talented and gifted cardmaker and scrapper- Ujjwal... If you have ever seen her work am sure you will agree with me that her work is always so Gorgeous!!! Her simplicity combined with the brilliant ideas makes her work so unique... And her stamping as well as paper piecing is so impressive that you cannot help but fall in love with them..... So without further ado lets get to know a little more about Ujjwal in her very own words :
Name: Ujjwal

1. Tell us a little about yourself 
I am a software engineer turned stay-at-home-mum-to-be who is an enthusiastic crafter and someone who's in love with all pretty things especially if its related to paper :)

2. When and how did you start cardmaking?
I have been crafting and making cards since I was in school but I hadn't come across all the fancy tools of the trade then. It was 2 years back that I started taking my hobby a little more seriously.

3. What inspires you to create? 
Inspiration comes in many forms. I am most motivated by the thought of seeing a priceless expression on a loved ones face when they receive a unique handmade product.

4.What is your favorite technique? Why? 
I love to stamp and explore different techniques associated with it. I think stamping is very versatile- a single stamp can be used in so many different ways and they are great for creating cards in bulk.   

5.Who are your favorite paper crafter's at this time ? Why ? 
I think there are a lot of very talented people out there who always manage to come up with something new and you are left thinking why didn't I think of that before. I love following Jennifer Mcguire, Shari Caroll and lots of other awesome crafters. They always have one or the other trick up their sleeve. 

6.Describe your style?
I have more of a Clean and Simple style when it comes to card making but then I also love to experiment at the same time with different styles and techniques.

7.Are you on any design team at this time?
Yes, I am working with a few product companies at the moment. One is Prickley Pear Stamps and the other is Pie Lane. I also a guest designer now and then for various other teams. 

8.What is your favorite thing's about creating?
Spending time creating is my special  "ME" time. I love the fact that I can just be on my own when I am creating and do something I love. It is also very liberating to be appreciated for what I create.

Such a fantastic line up of cards and other hand-made goodies!!! Ujjwal, how fun and happy are these little things :) :) I BET the recipients will be walking all day with a big smile on their faces, after receiving these!!!
Thanks folks for passing by.... "Great day ahead"
