A nameplate

Yeah finally I made a nameplate with my daughter's name on it... Simply loved the whole process... quilling is so engrossing and I simply love it... cant get enough of it...
This is a sneek peek into the nameplate... I started off by doing the letters and then did some beehive quilling inside the letters. I thought I will leave it at that but then remembered that you could make your own paper frame... thanks to Inna's idea here... So after some wrestling with the paper, I managed to get it somewhat right, it was my first attempt, quite ok. Then again I thought I will leave it like that but no... I wanted more quilling to be done.. so when I asked my 2.5 yr old.. shall we make some flowers, she was even more ecstatic because she loves to accompany me on my quilling sessions. I give her a strip and a pencil and she pretends to quill...:) So we began making the flowers... some Malaysian flowers, some normal tear drop arranged flowers (do they have a name, pls let me know) and then some leaves and branches... it was getting all the more better looking than before... But I had to stop somewhere so I did finally... But again when I look at it, I feel I could have added some more.. maybe in the next typography + frame I will do it hehe... Here are some pictures.
This picture is before I added the flowers...

Hope you like it

Another Thank You Card

Yes, another thank you card from me this time but with a bit of quilling unlike my previous one which had only fan fold (origami). I love making quilled fringe flowers and so I decided to use these flowers for my thank you card which i had planned to submit for World Card Making Day Contest hosted by Lulupu.com blog as my second entry. For this card, I made use of the 10mm quilling strips to make the fringed flowers, stuck them on top of a white dots on pink pattern paper from the especially for you collection. Just to add a dash of colour to the colourful flowers :P I also stuck a strip of PP on one corner. Handwritten sentiment on the bottom right corner on a diecut that came along with the pack of PPs :)

Some pictures for you to see.hope you like it

Thank You Card - World Card Making Day

Here is a Thank You Card from me keeping in mind World Card Making Day Contest hosted by Lulupu.com blog. It is a very simple card... not sure if this is a CAS card. I just used white card stock, put up strips of Mint Floral washi tape on it. Affixed a couple of fan fold flowers ( really difficult to make them stay!!),added the hand written sentiment and then some glitter!!! Let me know what you think.

Here are the pictures (sometimes I go on and on clicking pictures and editing all of them, and I want to upload all of them, silly me!)

Birthday Card - World Card Making Day Contest by Lulupu.com

Heya fellow bloggers, sorry for the looong absence from the blogging scene again (seems like I have been putting up this disappearing act quite too often now), Travel and sick child are the reasons behind my absence. But I am back with a few cards, thanks to the lovely challenge organised by Lulupu.com in connection with the World Card Making Day. They have put up 3 themes and it is nice to know that we can backlink some old posts which fit the theme. So I have linked up my quilled birthday card that I had made for Lulu's quilling lab's 2nd anniversary celebrations.

This is my second entry to the contest for the same theme - Birthday. Here it is:

I have made use of some nice pattern papers - wanted to make use of them as soon as I heard about the contest. They were very pretty to look at... So on a grey card stock, I layered this pattern paper called Especially for you and affixed some embellishments like butterfly diecut, the tattered teddy die cut that I got along with the PP. I just made it to look as if the teddy was holding some balloons - i quilled them :) and then I just attached a strip of Pink Butterfly washi tape and some glitter here and there hehehe. Sentiment as usual is hand written on one of the diecuts I got along with the PP and I also affixed a couple of blue foam hearts. I stuck the butterfly and teddy with double sided foam tape for the 3D effect

I also made this card keeping in mind Sindhu Jay (whose blog Trapped in Craft is celebrating its 1st anniversary and she is celebrating her first wedding anniversary this month) who is hosting a challenge each week of this month to commemorate the above events. This week the theme was ABC - multiply by 3 so I went along with Tejal with the letter B - bling, blue, butterfly, there is also the balloon element as seen in teddy's hand as well as on the PP. So I hope I can play along this challenge Sindhu!! Wishing you a very happy anniversary, may the love between the two of you grow manifold in the years to come :)

A note to Lulupu - Sorry I am not able to link up your products on my post, I dont know how to plus I am running short of time :( Hope its ok!

Before I link this card to all the challenges, here are some more shots of the card :)

Love - yeah I made this one too

I am not a very romantic type of girl and also not the mushy cushy love kind... is that all needed to be a girl? Naa, am not bothered.. but anyway I brought myself to make this card - Love theme for Lulupu's World Card Making Day contest. I wanted to make a quilled heart and fill it with hearts (some inspiration from Lin's blog with pink, white, and red quilling strips.

And then for the sentiment, I used foam letters and also added in some foam heart stickers. Finished it up with some organza ribbon and a hand written "for u" sentiment on the corner as well. For the layers, I used white card stock and on top of it I stuck some cream coloured card stock. I tried to make some faux stiching effect on the words "love" with red glitter pen.

Some more pictures for you...
