I learned to quill in October 2001, and still love it...maybe even more now... There is no limit to what one can create with quilling! It goes so well with many other techniques too... I have won several awards for my quilling and cards. I sell my quilling at arts and craft sales, & by word of mouth. I also do some custom/personalized orders. I do quilling demos, and teach both beginner and advanced techniques classes.
Here are some Sympathy cards that I made in the past. Most of them are quilled. These were made before I had my Big Shot embossing machine. These first ones are some of my early cards. You'll see a lot of my folded roses on these. I also like to use punched leaves, and tiny punched flowers as well.
This next one was a design team project using black and white... The punched flowers are velvet/suede paper.
These 2 are similar in design. I used the Onion Holder to make the cross on them. I like to use Ornare (paper pricking) to accent the quilling. Pearl Papers were used for both.
For this next one, I embossed the outside, and hand embosed the flowers ont he square using a brass template. Again, pearl papers were used. The Green leaf one was done with peel offs on water color paper, and colored with Tombow markers. This is a fun technique. The gold leaf on the black card is the inside of the leaf peel off.
