Triple Time Stamping Card

Hello! Today I have made a card based on the triple time stamping method. This is the first time I have tried this method. It is an amazing way to create depth in your cards.

  1. First I took a  5.25 in. x 4 in. panel of green cardstock and stamped the damask mudra stamp all over it with black artistry ink.
  2. Then I cut it in layers of three rectangle frames each smaller than 1 inch from the larger one (which means I left half inch on either side)
  3. Then I took another panel of the same green cardstock of 5.5 in. x 4.25 in. which is A2 size.
  4. I cut 3 rectangle frames out of it similar to the above. Each again 1 inch smaller than the larger one. This way I saved my cardstock from being wasted under the panel.
  5. After that I stuck the rectangle frames alternatively.
  6. Then I stamped a sentiment image in the centre panel. And stuck the panel on the base card. And I was good to go.

Hope you liked my card. Do try this method of triple stamping. 

Supplies used:
Green Cardstock
Black Cardstock 300 gsm 
Stamps - Mudra Damask 3x2 stamp and Itsy Bitsy Stamp Dream Catcher
Black Artistry ink
White glue

Feeling it!

Love is in the air. So they say.
I believe that love is in your heart.
And the way to anyone's heart is through their stomach.
Uhhh. Don't mind me. I am spilling out anything that's coming to my mind or is it heart. Or both?

Which makes me come to my main point. Is our heart and mind really separate?
Of course I don't mean physically! Duh.
I mean how do we know whether something that comes to us is a feeling or a thought?
For starters, both are intangible (meaning you cannot touch either).
Both could be just plain imagination.
Both emanate from within.
So how do we differentiate one from the other?

I feel (I choose to feel than think) that thoughts are mostly a summary of our interactions with the outside world. The sum of information we gather and mingle with our intelligence. They are most of the time learned, logical and reasonable.

As opposed to feeling. Feeling is irrespective of what you have learned till now.
A person may be a doctor, having treated thousands of patients till now. Knowing that disease and illness is a part of life. But even then if a loved one gets ill, they will feel affected. Even though their brain tells them not to, their heart will give in.
Most of the time.

I say most of the time, because I have come across people who might not exhibit this.
That is what I am unable to grasp. Practical people. I mean I have always envied them. Seriously. Its like they have received a boon. Their emotions are so in check, they can get through almost anything. My observations. Could be not true.
But they can bounce back out of anything. Like elastic.

Unlike emotional people. They kind of suffer even over trivial things. Like not having bought that amazing blue dress that so caught their eyes. Or over that snide comment a friend made a week ago, but is still fresh in your mind. or heart. You decide.

Though everything has its pros and cons, Emotional people I feel, help keep humanity alive in human beings.
Their feelings, I believe is what makes the world going. Because without our feelings we would be like a car without fuel. Or food without salt.
True, you could pull or push the car to move or eat the food without taste. But then its sense of purpose is lost.

Like it would be. If human beings lost their feelings.

As Johnny Depp says,
You can close your eyes to the things you don't want to see, but you can't close your heart to the things you don't want to feel.

Pain Pain Go Away...

Pain Pain Go Away, come again another day ???

Wait.... Don't ever come again. Isn't this what we always wish ? 

Yes, we do.
But as balance in life is important, pain can never completely go away. 
You could however, change your reaction to it.
Pain keeps you in the present. In the Now. It keeps us what we call A.L.I.V.E.
Have you noticed that as our pain becomes past, we do not remember it. We cannot remember it. This is a boon given to mankind. We may recollect the situation but the feeling is lost. Well I am not complaining!

Physical pain is experienced lesser in reality than the worry that precedes it.
Although emotional pain is experienced in manifold than the worry we dedicate to it.
Such is Life. 
But sometimes pain helps us to live, many times it even helps us to heal.
It makes us challenge our own beliefs. Be it mental, emotional, physical or psychological.
As long as Life exists, pain will co-exist!
But you can change the way you perceive it, the way you deal with it or the way you handle it.
Life comes a full circle not when pain vanishes but rather when you accept it as an expression of Life itself!

Quoting a line from the poem, "I wish you enough" which says,

I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive,
I wish you enough pain so that the smallest joys in life may appear much bigger.
Because even though we wish pain never comes our way (I wish that for you too), it teaches us that Everything is to be experienced in the Present. Just like we experience Pain! 

Like Haruki Murakami once said...

Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional.

Thrilled by AXN

Ek se bhale do, Do se bhale teen…

How many times does a book make it to a blockbuster movie? And even if it does how many times does a movie make it to a TV Series? Didn’t they say three is better than two?

Mitch and Abby McDeere 

“The Firm” is one of those stories adapted from a book by John Grisham (who needs no introduction) & then to a movie by the same name starring Tom Cruise (my favorite). If you love the rush of adrenaline by watching thrillers, “The Firm” is coming to your TV sets to fulfill this thriller quota every weekend.

 I am fortunate enough to preview this drama series which premiers today. If you like John Grisham you’ll love this. If you have seen the movie, then the Series picks up exactly where the movie ended. Very few series have had this advantage.

Josh Lucas in "The Firm"

"The Firm" starring Josh Lucas as Mitchell McDeere and Molly Parker as Abby McDeere is a drama series based on murder, mystery & solving cases. Josh Lucas seems to be doing justice to his role as Mitch but comparison with Tom Cruise is inevitable. With his sparkling blue eyes, he convinces you that he is the only lawyer whom you can trust! The episode begins with a thrilling pace taking us ten years back where Mitchell and Abby left us in the movie. They are now trying to pick their life up after spending ten years in a witness protection program but destiny has other plans! All that happens next is worth viewing!

India’s leading English channel AXN is starting this new series “The Firm” which premiers globally today, The Sunday 19th February 2012 at 9 pm.

So if it’s Thrill that you are looking for, then it’s just a remote control away!
