Hi all

Its been very long time , how are you all??  Wanted to share a news. I am expecting a second baby in december and this is the reason for the long gap. I have not been well in my first trimester so totally away from my quilling activities. My first son is in Kindergarten from last month and so picking him from school and doing household chores is presently my challenge. Hope i will be back in New year.

Till then Happy Crafting to all of you.

Happy Birthday AMMA

Hi all

Made a quick card for my friend who wants to send her mother. AMMA  means mother in our language. I have used the MFT alphabet dies for the first time here.  Painted the letters with gold acrylic paint.  I made an embossed background on a pink cardstock. Added the black embossed sentiment on a label with the letters. Final touch with some quilled flower , felt butterfly and some pearls. 
Made a 3D envelope to fit the card. I added an embossed paper to the front of the envelope and a label with gold embossed sentiment.  

wishing simonsaysstamp a very Happy 5th Birthday and linking this card to Inspired from swirls and quilling.

A Simple Birthday card

Hi all
A quick post for a card made using the colors from colorthrowdown . I store the sand colored cardstocks which i get as a base when buying my white cardstocks and finally used one.  Embossed the background. Roses made using the punch. I had this espresso colored pattern paper from mind's eye which i cut using my circle cutter and placed under the sentiment. The sentiment 'A Birthday' is again stamped with hero art shadow ink and the banner is placed using foam dots. Leaves again is diecut and placed using foam dots. Finally a little sequin in between the flowers. 
Happy that i made one card using the colors which i always find difficult in  getting the right colors.

Hope you like it and thanks for visiting.

Embossing on the frame


I made a quick frame for my friend's daughter. I tried few techniques here, heat embossing on the wooden frame.

 I made roses with spellbinders rose creations die.I used pink cardstock and sponged it with pink ink at the centre ,petals and edges with versamark. Corner is heat embossed with gold embossing powder. The name is written using the pearl maker and colored with gold metallic marker. There is an embossing effect on the name.  I embossed the word Adorable on a cardstock and used distress inks on it. Finally completed with some punched flowers, sequins,butterfly. 
Used the letters
L- Leaves
P- Pearl,Punches,Pearl maker
C- Cheerylynn die(olive branch), Cardstock for flowers.

Torn Heart

Hi all,

Back after a long gap. Returned from my hometown a week back. Made a card to participate in few challenges.
   I first stamped the sentiment on a white card stock( 1st layer) and pasted on red base card stock. The second layer is also a white card stock on which i drew the heart shape and was torn . Applied the dye ink on the edges of the torn paper and embossed it with darice paisley embossing folder. Pasted it so that the sentiment comes under the heart shape.  Made roses and leaves from Spellbinders rose creations die. Hopefully will make better flowers next time.   Used punches for small flowers. Pasted little heart rhinestones on the sentiment. Placed the Pearl as center of one flower and arranged pollens.
Participating in BGC with this card .
My card consists of  3 letters
L - Layers, Leaves ,Love theme
P - Pearl, Pollens , Punches
C - Cardstock for layers , Cheery Lynn die(olive branch)

Submitting to lulupu Birthday
and BGC torn and flower full

Hope it qualifies and will be happy to hear your comments on my card.

Great Experience

Hi all

I know i have been away from blog world from long time but here i am to share some news. Today i delivered my first bulk order of christmas cards(200) which i was working from last  two months. Its a lovely experience and learnt so many new things. First i would like to thank smita of for teaching me quilling and making me do something satisfying which i never thought before i met her.

                                            I did lots of quilling and now i think i will not loose patience in doing quilling works. Tried heat embossing for sentiments in all my cards which i never did before. I did 700 quilled roses,140bells,70ribbons for first card. 70quilled trees which has 15 rolled coils each for my second card.140 poinsettia flowers, 1120 leaves using combing technique for my third card and embossing for sentiments with gold and green powders. I am mentioning the number because next time if i want to gain interest or patience i can atleast see these numbers and think positively when i feel low.
Here is the lovely mess. will soon share the new cards.

Going on vacation for two months and i hope will be back with some enthusiasm. 

Thanks for the support always.
