Hi Desire

Oh, quilling can be so impressive. This is a pretty card. Thank you for sending us a picture of how you used this technique in your classes.

Yes, I did mention the quilling technique in one of my newsletter. There are some instructions on site too.

I made the roses on this card using 3/8" wide quilling paper. Each petal is from a separate piece of paper which is cut, curled and glued. They look so real you want to smell them!

Oh, Pat, you are so right! Your flowers look so real! I love the way you made the leaves, too. And your card is just in time to inspire people to create something special for Valentine's Day :)

You really know how to make wonderful things with your quilling. Thank you so much for sharing some of your work with us.

I'm already looking forward to your next piece!

Happy Paper Crafting!

Bits and pieces - a quilted card

by Marti Bibeau

Bits and Pieces

Bits and Pieces

I friend wanted a card for another friend.
The recipient likes quilting.
So I found a template online and proceeded to make this with just scraps of paper. I used a Martha Stewart punch around the page (Cherish).

Hi Marti

I like the patchwork effect you made here very much. What a good use for those scraps of paper we all have.

I can see you embossed various patches and that you used a lot of paper piercing which added to the sewn effect so well. The ribbon and button finishes it off perfectly.

It is a very clever piece and I am sure the recipient loved her card!

Thank you for sharing.

Valentine's Day Card

by Judy Oliveira
(El Cajon, CA USA)

Cupcake Valentine Greeting

Cupcake Valentine Greeting

I made several different patterns of Valentine cards for my friends and family. This was my favorite style that I made. I used plain white card stock and envelopes.

I stamped the background of the card with pink ink scattered hearts first then with black ink butterflies on top. I glued dark red ribbon on top and the bottom of the card. Then I added a cupcake and two heart embellishments.

Inside the card I stamped the pink hearts and the black butterflies, one on top of the other, in the corners of the card and I stamped the words I LOVE YOU!

I used the same stamps on the outside of my envelope too to coordinate with my card.

Judy

****************************


Judy, your card looks good enough to eat! I like the stamped pattern you have created and the fact that you decorated the inside of the card too.

So often I leave the inside blank and that means I missed an opportunity to stamp and make the card extra special for whoever is receiving it.

Have a wonderful Valentine's Day. It's getting close now. I hope everyone is ready!

Happy Stampin'

Thanksgiving Cards for Susan

Actually I am very happy to see that you replied me.

About one and a half years ago when I was pursuing a B.Ed. there was a card making competition on the festival "Dewali". At that moment I had no idea what to make, and what should be the design I did not know. Then I looked for help on the Internet and I found ideas about it. Now I know how to make paper quilled cards.

It is good to make these card because there is no need to color the card. It all depends on your creative mind how to do it in an attractive manner.

Here are a few more of my quilled cards for you.

Hello again Vidhi

Thank you for posting some more of your lovely quilled cards here. I am glad to see them and to know you actually taught yourself how to make them with the help of some Internet ideas. That is how I got started with quilling too!

You are so right, the quilling papers themselves provide all the colour you need for your handmade greeting cards. You can make quite beautiful cards with subtle or bright shades. And it is not too hard to learn how to do it.

Thank you again for showing us more of your lovely work.

Happy crafting!

Susan

Women's Day Special

by Vidhi
(Faridabad, Haryana, India)





Hello Mam ,

I am sending card second time and I hope you like them but I think my camera was not so good so my pictures of cards are not so clear but I have tried my best. I really want to know about these cards. How are they, good or not good? Please tell me mam. I really want a response about these cards.
I hope you'll like them.
I really enjoyed making these cards.

Vidhi

Hello Vidhi

Thank you for sending me pictures of more of your lovely cards. I love the designs you make. More importantly, you tell me you are enjoying making these cards. That is very good! It is not good to have a hobby that you do not enjoy.

These pictures are clearer than the first set of photos you sent to me. I think perhaps if you try to avoid having shadows in the pictures you will like them better. Try leaning back a little or photographing your cards when they are standing up or leaning on something.

Another thing I do is to set my camera on something solid to be sure I do not get a blurry photo from camera shake.

Thank you again fro sending in examples of your beautiful quilling.

Happy crafting and happy Woman's Day

Susan

Lovely card for Lohri special

by Vidhi

Lohri festival - special quilled card

Lohri festival - special quilled card

This is paper quilling card. One more thing I would like to say is that one should have patience while making quilled cards.

Happy Lohri to all of you.

Vidhi

Hi Vidhi

Thank you for sending me a picture of your Lohri Festival card. You know, I was unfamiliar with your festival so had to find out what it was all about. It looks like it is a harvest festival? No wonder you chose pretty vines and flowers for your quilled card. It kind of reminds me of Thanksgiving.

I like how you have made almost thistle like flowers by quilling finely cut paper strips and wrapping them in a wider, shiny band. They look very effective.

You could make some of those based on my paper daisy method, couldn't you. I think that is how you made the flowers that are standing up, only wrapping them with shorter pieces of paper? And the scrolls are made by allowing a quilled piece of paper to relax, then teasing it out a bit more to make wider swirls.

Very nice, Vidhi! And you are right, patience is a very handy thing to have when making pretty quilled flowers, but I think practicing also helps a lot!

Enjoy your celebrations with your friends, and happy papercrafting too.

Susan
