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.
In 2013, I became accredited with the North American Quilling Guild.
These next few cards are again Christmas theme. This first one just doesn’t look nearly as good in the picture! It is a quilled snowflake using the Jane Jenkins’s holographic papers, which in my opinion are some of the most gorgeous papers for snowflakes! I also used a holographic ribbon to go behind the embossed layer of card. The embossing folder is from Cuttlebug’s 2010 Winter Wonderland set. I also used holographic tape behind the Happy Christmas layer. It turned out so nice, I wish the picture did it justice but it doesn’t. Hopefully you get the idea of how it looked.
The next one is a stamped card. I embossed a nativity stamp in silver, and then chalked it. Then I quilled the star using gilded paper to go above it. The embossing is done with a Sizzix Texture plate.
The third one is quilled holly on a spellbinders scalloped layer circle, with and embossed holly background. I taught this one at my card making group last fall.
