3D quilled Cake

3D quilling!! Hmm I was never into it until I tried building a house out of paper! I don’t know why I did it but I’m glad I did it coz now I’m interested in doing more!!! So I wanted to quill a cake!! I see that lot of quillers make 3D cakes, so I thought why not! So here I am making a cake! Or is it baking?!! 

Anyway, I had to cut wider strips by hand, which was the tiring part coz now use my paper shredder to cut strips of 0.3mm. I used folded roses to decorate the cake, and think of this as icing on the cake!! 

Well I did more than quilling a cake actually , I made some pretty dolls too.. but that’sgoing to be the next post. I completed these actually in december 2012, but with the christmas and new year i've been a lot busy lately....

PS: I'm sorry about the lousy photos :(((

Heart filled with tight rolls - RED

A heart entirely made of tight rolls!! So this is my new trend now… this started when I did a quilled typography wall hanger “MOM”, I used tight rolls in various colors and in combos as well. So now I’m interested in using them for my cards as well! Not a great news for my hands though… making tight rolls is very tiring… my left hand was complaining a lot actually!! Wish we had a machine to roll the strips.. it’s just rolling …rolling ..rolling and *sigh… So once again I’m wandering out of track! So let’s get back to the design at hand!

Did this for a friend and a regular customer of chamicrafts actually! I made it for their anniversary. No wordings on the front of the card, just a big heart with tight rolls in red shades color combo. The background is actually a piece of a wrapping paper, which I love! Inside has a pop up of 5 hearts, coz it’s the 5th anniversary, and the card is blank as usual.. hoping to do this heart again soon..           

CARD CODE:    AC008R

Happy new year 2013

Happy New Year everyone!! Sorry I’m a bit late with my wishes and I haven’t posted anything since Christmas. I have lots of new stuff to be posted. But I have so busy for the past couple of weeks and I didn’t have time to post them here. I got a large last minute order for new year greetings cards and I was trying to complete them on time. And now I’m full time working, also with the work concerning my degree…. Phew! It’s a handful!! So I will post them all as I get time. The time I’ve got for doing cards is limited now. So please order your cards at least 3 weeks before. I will be only available in weekends for card making.

So this is the largest order I have ever received, so far ! Luckily it wasn’t such a big quantity and we decided to keep the design to a very simple idea as there wasn’t much time to do it. I usually don’t take last minute orders, but it was for a cousin. The design is from the customer and the color theme requested was red-white-black only. Their company logo K needed to be quilled… and here it is!! I made 15 of it, with two entirely different Ks, but each K is unique from other. Envelopes are made with bubble wraps, in white with their logo. Inside message was printed with the wordings he requested. So that’s it!

Catch you later!
