Christmas 3D decoupage card I

Yesterday was the first real winter day in my town! So, more Christmas cards, but this time will be no quilling, but another technique that I love for cards: 3D decoupage. The card I would love to share today is one of my favorite.

The image used and the sentiment is from Ann's Paper Art webshop.

The Christmas paper -found at another on-line hobby shop. I just love it!

 This time I tried to take my pictures on a white background and played a little with brightness and contrast in Gimp. For sure the colors are now closer to the real ones!

I found very useful this tutorial  recommended by my cousin Alina.

Hope  you love these type of cards because I have more to share with you! 

Wish you a wonderful week!

Quilling for Christmas III

Thank you very much for your visits and so kind words! Sorry for not answering to your comments, yet.

This time I would like to share my quilled Christmas tree.

I tried to make it only from swirls and I think it turned out very cute.

I love the pill off sticker sentiments, they look great on CAS cards. 

Wish you a wonderful week!

Quilling for Christmas II

Thank you very much for your visits! I am very happy I am back in the blog-land. Today I would like to share another Christmas card, this time with Christmas balls. 

They were made using the beehive technique.

And to make them more festive I used my silvery pen for a little shining air.

Sorry for not so good pictures. No very good light this days:(

Wish you a wonderful day!

Quilling for Christmas I

       Thank you very much for your visits and kind words! And welcome to my new followers!
         Because Christmas is coming very soon (I don't know how time is just flying) I would like to share my 2012 Christmas cards.

         First one is with a little candle. 

  A candle and a poinsettia flower surrounded by swirl branches.

I just love this embossed border! I feel is going very well with quilling.

Wish you a wonderful day!

Fall greetings cards

After a long break from blogging, I'm back! In the mean time I was still folding, rolling paper and learning to crochet :) 
First I would like to show you my cards made in the beautiful colors of this fall!

 The inspiration for this card is a beautiful stamp for Thanksgiving.

And two cute quilled pumpkins :)

Wish you a wonderful Sunday!

Red and black

Hello, dear blogger friends! I had some problems accessing my account, that's why I couldn't comment on your last beautiful projects! Hope now is all ok again.

This is my first red and black combination and for sure I will use it more often.

Sorry for the not so good pictures, but we had an awful weather here, just rain and cloudy sky for more than a week or so. And the card couldn't wait a sunny day because was made for a friend's birthday, so it had to be on it's way to get there.

This one is with flash and looks a little bit better.

And a close-up of the flowers for which I used the Malaysian flower.

I played a little with light and contrast in Gimp for a better view of the petals :)

Hope you enjoyed your visit! Wish you a wonderful sunny day!

Quilling little flowers

Inspired by the elegant and beautiful Jill Chapman's cards, I made this one using little quilled flowers. I just love her designs and glad to let you know she has a blog where you can admire her work.

I love orange, purple and yellow combination and happy to have peel off stickers for sentiments. The embossed white paper remains my favorite for card making.

I didn't think I will be able to quill so small flowers:)

I would like to enter this card to the next challenge: 

Hope you enjoyed your visit! Wish you a wonderful Sunday!

Another Easter card

Hello, dear blogger friends! Welcome to my new followers and thank you for your visits and kind words! 
Is good to find a little time to post again. This time a stitching card for Easter. The pattern and peel off stickers are from Ann's Paper. Hope you like it!

I am very happy my aunt kept her thread from the times she was sewing gobelin, in this way I have some graduated thread! I don't know if is visible enough in the pictures, but for sure looks great in real life:)

 I would like to enter my card to the next challenges:

Wish you a beautiful and creative day!

Easter card

I finished in time all my cards for International Women's Day! Hurray! I still have to share with you a few more designs, but I would like to present you my first Easter card.

I wished to quill the symbols of Easter, the biblical symbols and tried my best. I love Easter bunny, the eggs, but I don't know why I felt this year that I would love to make some cards which will send the message of true meaning of Spring Holiday.

My smallest tool for quilling is a skewer:) I should find something else for tiny quilled pieces, though. Do let me know what do you think about my card! I would love to read your opinion!

Wish you a beautiful spring day!

Happy Mother's Day!

Today we celebrate Mother's Day! I dreamed for a long time to make this card for my mother, a combination of quilling and stitching. Basket of flowers pattern from Stitching cards, her favorite pattern, but with quilled flowers!

I stitched only the basket and  for flowers and leaves I used 1,5mm hand cut paper strips. I felt that only tiny flowers will go very well with the stitched basket.

I put in this flowers all my love for my mother. Tried to make a special and most beautiful card for her! Hope I managed to do so, even if it could be better here and there.

Hope you enjoyed your visit! Wish you a very Happy Mother's Day!

Purple and yellow flowers

And the purple and yellow version of my other post card. I decided to let the red and white card yesterday being the 1st of March, first day of spring in Romania:)

We had a beautiful warm, sunny day, no clouds and no rain. Really a spring day!

Today seamed like yesterday was just a dream of spring, a very short visit of my favorite season.

But for sure spring will come, with flowers, sunny days and lots of wonderful scents in the air!

Wish you a sunny weekend!

Still in red and white

My husband's favorite card! He just loves how this card turned out and was telling me to do more like this one.

The only problem was I had only one paper like this left and not in stock at store.

I tried it on a different embossed paper with oval shape in the middle and other kind of flowers. That version sometimes this week, just to take some pictures.

Hope you enjoyed your visit today! Tomorrow the purple version of my bubble embossed card. 

Wish you a wonderful evening!

Purple for a change:)

Admiring Suzana's cards for Mother's Day I remembered I have purple organza ribbon. And thought wow, a break from red and white will be great!

I wished for a long  time to quill this side view of a flower with butterfly, seen on many quilling blogs. But for some reason I was just postponing it. Maybe because I was afraid of not getting the right angle for the flower.

Sorry for the little blurred picture, but I don't have very steady hands sometimes and don't like taking pictures with flash, only if is necessary.

This time I used a paper bead for the ribbon. Is made out of a strip of paper which came out uneven from my paper shredder.

Hope you enjoyed the purple break.
See you tomorrow with a red and white card.

Wish a wonderful day!

Squares and quilled flowers

I love these little punched squares with border and thinking for a long time to put some flowers on them. Now was the perfect time:)

I made this card having in mind a little gift with a ribbon, a red satin ribbon.

Love the combination of these simple flowers, the pale yellow, red and pale pink.

Wish you a wonderful day!

Quilling tulip

I will start with my favorite flower, tulip. I love tulips, but didn't try to quill so many. 

Last year, when I started to quill, I managed to make a few tulips. I feel that is one is more delicate.

The satin ribbon is really beautiful, love it. I used a paper ring instead of gluing the ribbon on card, a ring which you will see on other cards, too, because I like how it turned out.

And a close up of my fragile tulip:) The stems are made with doubled paper.

Wish you a wonderful Saturday!

Martisoare quilling

Hello again! Thank you very much for your visits and kind words! Hope my cards will raised to your expectations:) They are all clean and simple, like I used to make them. But for start my martisoare.

A very, very small part of them! These were the basic models I used: flowers, butterflies, clover and lady bug. I made the flowers and butterflies in different colours. I tell you that loved making those red, tiny flowers, they were my favorites!

Wish you a very creative start of the weekend!
See you tomorrow with my first card!
