Seasons greetings

Hi friends..

Lamps, candles, wreath, tree, snowman, ornaments and what not.. Christmas fever is on peek.. 

Today my post is about Christmas greeting.. the best way to convey our thoughts to someone special is by making handmade card.

I have started with white cardstock. I created cercle shaped whole with my paper knife. Then I punch some glitter foam leaves and berries. I created wreath with those leaves and berries.. I attached bow using golden thread on top of wreath.

For side white and red striped pattern I have used fired brick distress ink. I created striped pattern using washi tape to leave white space between red. For sentiment I took red cardstock, golden glimmer sheet and white cardstock (on which I stamped design using spun sugar distress ink ). I stamped merry x'mas sentiment using itsy bitsy alphabet stamp set.

Then I created hand made Santa for my shaker part of card. I coloured Santa using sketch pens and coloured pencils. I attached window sheet on back side, added foam tape and filled some white glimmer powder for snowy effect and some white snowflakes. Then I attached white cardstock to sandwich everything from back. 

Hope you all will like my little Santa card. Please comment. Thank you for stopping by.

Merry Christmas

Hi all..

Hope Xmas and new year plannings are going good. I have also started decorating my home..

Today I thought that why not create Wreath to decorate my door. And what will be best medium to create it, offcourse paper quilling..My all time favourite technique.

Although quilling is huge topic to discover. And there are many techniques which I usually like to use in my creations like comb quilling, malesian flower, beehive technique, 3d flowers, looping, husking etc.

It is very difficult to choose one favourite technique. So I decided to make my wreath using different techniques. Here is my creation..

I have started with sunflower using three shades of yellows and fringe flower in center. Here also I made some buds using 3d quilling technique. Then I shifted to orange flower using black and orange strips. Here I used copper glitter balls for center. After that I created blue malesian flower. I used blue pollens in center. Now pink flower is made using curved malesian flower in center offcourse with pink pollens. Then big flower is made using tiny leaf shape quills of pink, peach and white stripes. I joined all different quills to create petal shape. Here I used golden pollens.  Blue and white flowers made using comb quilling technique. I created seven blue quilled cones for center . Then red flower is made using three layers of different shades of reds with tear drop shape.. here I used white pearl pollens. Then last purple flower is with golden cone in center. I also made two cute butterflies. All leaves are made by different shapes and different shades of greens. All flowers and leaves I have created using 5mm stripes, only butterflies are made using 3mm strips.

And this is my finished project 

Although I like all techniqus of quilling very much but I always love to make 3d flowers in my project.
