It had been a while since I had done any quilling, so I thought I’d make a quilled card to enter in this week’s Mod Squad Challenge called “Spring Forward” where we are encouraged to use flowers, birds, butterflies, hummingbirds, etc. and bright, beautiful colors to make a Spring themed card. (http://modsquadchallenge.blogspot.com/2015/02/spring-forward.html)
I sponged Gina K Wild Lilac ink on white card stock and glued my quilled iris and decorative swirls on this panel. Then, I created a recessed frame with thick fun foam and Spellbinders oval dies.
The printed paper is from a digital set I bought from a store on Etsy called The Pixel Posy. The set is called “Vintage William Morris digital paper designs//Art Nouveau background paper pack//Blue and purple flower digital paper.” HERE is the link.
This card used a number of quilled shapes: teardrops, half circles, marquises and wheatears (leaves). I used instructions by “Quilled Creations” to create the iris.
I had made a few other quilled cards in the past that I had posted in my StampTV Gallery. I’m including them here as well.
This sympathy card was the first one I did back in May 2013. I used a basic marquise shape for the flowers and leaves. The sentiment was from the Gina K Designs “All Occasion Tags” Stamp set. The tag was cut with a die from the Spellbinders Grommet Tag set, and the embossing folder is Darice Corner Scroll.
I used the same embossing folder and marquise shapes to create two more – a wedding card and a confirmation card.
The sentiment on the wedding card is from the Gina K Designs “Always and Forever” duo stamp set. I purchased the stamp for the confirmation card on Ebay, and it is unmarked so I have no idea what company made it.
The next card I made was for a bridal shower. I used teardrops to make the umbrella.
Quilled Creations makes a great tool called “Circle Template Board” that makes it easy to create consistent and perfectly proportioned quilled shapes. I also use their slotted quilling tool to roll the circles; the slot makes it easy to get the paper rolls started.
I forgot how much I LOVE quilled designs; I will definitely need to do this more often!!
Thanks for checking out my card projects!
