IQCG#22-- Anything Goes---- 3D Quilled Snowman

Greetings everyone!!

This is Jasleen here of Happily Ever Crafter and I'm back with my DT inspiration post for the last month of 2015. This is a two-month long challenge and the theme is 'Anything Goes', with quilling as the focal point, ofcourse. So, that means so much more time to create, so many possibilities and so much fun !

This is what I created :-

Olaf--3D quilling

Can you recognize him ? Well, he's the very popular and cute character,Olaf-the snowman, from the English animated movie 'Frozen' . And he loves warm hugs !! ;)

Olaf-3D Quilling
So, I used 5 mm width of white colored quilling strips to make the body using the 3-dimensional quilling technique. He stands approximately 3 inches tall.

Isn't he cute? And so apt for the festive month of December !

I hope my post inspires you in some way to come up with something quilled for this challenge. Link up your entries here .

Happy Quilling !! :-)

Make it festive--- Diwali cards

Hello Friends!

This is Jasleen here of Happily Ever Crafter and I'm back with my DT inspiration for this month's challenge at Indian Quilling group--Make it Festive. You can create anything but it must be associated with some festival or you can make anything with some added sparkle and glitter to symbolize festivity. But the focus should be on the Quilling.

The festival of Diwali being just round the corner, I thought it would be the best time to make a few Quilled Diwali greeting cards. Here they are :



The above card was made using 5 mm quilling strips and Penny black dazzler stamps for the background.

Here's the second card:--



In the above card, I tried to show a cardboard box full of crackers. That cardboard box was made out of a  kraft cardstock and the crackers are all quilled using 3 mm quilling strips. The silver 'Phuljhadis' are made by wrapping a piece of silver glitter washi tape over the toothpick.

And now the third card:--


Made some swirls using different shades of yello-coloured 3mm quilling strips,  added some sparkle and shine and voila! A sparkly and festive card was ready!

Hope my cards inspire you to make something of your own and participate. Do link your entries here.

Happy Quilling !

We have set the theme as white on white and only one colour can be added to a minimum extent. It is very hard for us to reject a beautiful entry.

IQC#20, DT Post--White-on-white Quilling

Greetings Everyone!

This is Jasleen here back with my DT project for this month's challenge, white-on-white, but before that, I would like to extend my warm wishes on the occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi. May Lord Ganesha help overcome all the obstacles and bring peace and prosperity to your lives.

Inspired by the festive fervour around, I attempted to quill  Lord Ganesha in it's simplest form using 5mm width of white quilling strips against a white backdrop.


White colour symbolises purity, innocence, completeness, faith and spirituality; a colour which , I believe, quite perfectly symbolises the magnificience of the deity.

There are so many ways you can interpret this month's white-on-white quilling challenge-- like an elegant greeting card with white quilled flowers, white coloured jhumkas with white pearls on them, or if you are finding it difficult to find time amidst the busy festivities at home, you can try making a couple of tiny white quilled flowers and add them to a white-painted hairclip ! Easy peasy, right? Well, you see, no dearth of good ideas. Participation is important. :)

Looking forward to your entries here.  If you have any suggestions, queries or anything to say about my work, please comment below. I love to receive your feedback always! :)

IQCG #20 White on White - DT Post

 Hi friends,
This month's (September) theme at the Indian Quilling Challenge is to create something with quilling but condition is white on white. If you want to use any other color then keep it to minimum.
You can have a look here for the challenge rules.

From long time I wanted to make a slider card. So decided to make slider card with white on white theme.


I choose to make a boy and girl outline and heart is the slider part in this card. Heart goes from girl to boy and vice versa.


I also made a Heart Maze card. This is from a boy to girl who loves doing mind puzzles.
 



I hope you like the cards...and we are waiting to see your  creations on white on white theme.

Do link your entries to this month's IQCG # 20 White on White. We would love to see what you have created.


Happy Quilling!
