I find  her work is so in tune with all the current trends and her style so very subtle and sophisticated that one looks at her work and you know its a winner for sure.. No wonder that she has been published in many paper crafting magazines... And if you are wondering who I am talking about then please let me introduce you to Piali Biswas and here's what she has to say about herself and her work:

I’m originally from  India, lived in Robbinsville, NJ for 12 years… Currently I’m in India for hubby’s work project.I’ve been married to wonderful husband for 15 years and together we’ve two adorable girls of age 11 and 7.

I have been so fortunate to have my creations published in several papercrafting magazines and have designed for some wonderful companies.

2. When and how did you start cardmaking?
I started papercrafting in June 2009. While surfing thru internet I came across some cardmaking videos and card challenge blogs, I found it so interesting, went out and got some stamps. Since then I’ve been stamping and making cards.

3. What inspires you to create?
Inspiration is everywhere. I mostly find my inspirations from the product itself. When I want to create something I try to look at the stamps and papers and then plan my colors and designs from them.

4. What is your favorite technique? Why?
Stamping!! I love to stamp and color images with Copics!

Laura Bassen of Doublestick Heaven: Love the way she uses color and diecuts for CAS projects..totally rocks!
Julia Stainton of Belle Papier: Nobody can mix textures and embellishments better than she does!
These are few top ones of my fave list …..its really goes on and on I better stop here

6. Describe your style?
I create in variety of styles. My most favorite ones are the Clean and Simple Stamped projects!

7. Are you on any design team at this time? Have you been published on any magazine or online journal?
I’m currently designing for Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamp and CAS-ual Fridays!!
Yes!! I’ve been fortunate to have my creations published in PAPER CRAFTS, CARDS CREATE, JUST CARDS, SCRAP & STAMP ARTS, TAKE TEN magazines.

8.What is your favorite thing about creating?
I just love cardmaking/papercrafting! Its more than a hobby, now it has become a big part of my life.The best part of my hobby is making friends from all around the world thru my blog. I love to inspire and share!!!!
