Together forever

 Romantic paper quilling frame

Framed version

Hieee.... Its been a long since I last posted on here.... Oh I missed so many challenges and some amazing posts. But will catch up with everything soon. Yes , now I am back to routine.. Meanwhile I was busy with Diwali then week long 'Holiday in Singapore" . I was away from crafting since a month , but I have many things to share which I made before and could not upload due to rush.

This frame is custom order by a friend who wanted to gift it to his sis and her husband on their first anniversary . He wanted me to make a small and sweet frame which will show their love and togetherness. Me and my husband thought of many themes and finalized  this along with a garden chair around which I skipped later looking at the space.

The border is done using washi tape , rest all is paper quilling work , 'together forever' are alpha stickers on square bits of  paper.

Moments holder

You can view the previous one here.  The flowers I have used here is from crafterscorner which I won from beyondgrey challenge .  I have used grain gross kinda paper for bg . Embellished with few fringe flowers and punched flowers in addition . Touch of pearls always rocks . ;)  I loved this two color combi a lot.

Festive theme

Hi dear friends.. Here come the festive season and my mind started giving me signals to go traditionally crafty.  So , we are working on Diwali gifts for our Oranjee creations .

For this frame , I choose a deep red bg , little quilling experiment for paisley , and random designs using 3d out liner .
We generally make such designs in Rangoli or Mehendi. I love to make both . Also , these are my favorite designs to scribble at the back of any note book , on news paper while talking on phone or anywhere :P

Lady with quilled lilies

Framed version

 Hi all , I took around 2 months to complete this frame , long long story  ;)
Once I was chatting with my sis on skype when we decided to try this after we saw it here .  Immediately  I started to draw its face and it was done in not more than 1.5 hrs . Oh , I was super excited to call sis back again to show and she was super glad and amazed to see it too . It turned out to be so delicate and innocent. Then started the hunt for kind of flowers we wanted to make for it . Ufff  we tried few techniques , few I didn't like , 2-3 she didn't like . .( so we took weeks to finalise the kind of flowers )  and selected this from a quilling book she won from a candy. This is so unlike me , as I don't think and plan a lot to make a project.
The yellow water coloring was a random and quick play.

Sorry for bugging you all with my story :p   but I had to share it.

We loved it. Hope you like it :)

Diwali card

Hi Friends !! I am making diwali cards these days . Sharing one of them . Its lil difficult for me to not include flowers in my card and instead work on a diff theme  . So , trying my skills on that. This is a very common concept of making a leaf  and then Ganesha over it. I hand cut the leaf and then quilled the face on it and embellished it with 3-d outliner and glitter . Used stamps for the border.

Previously I used to make a lot of traditionally decorated stuffs , but last week when I sat to make cards I went out of ideas . Also then I ordered Ganesha stamps from Krafter's kart . Tried to make few envelopes using it. Will share soon.

Hope you like it!!

Ganesha quilling

Hello friends , I have been working on this project since few days.. My version of quilled Ganesha. I selected a picture of Ganesha , sketched it and started to quill randomly. I have used shiny stones to make its jewellery . Done lot of bee hiving . Love the way its foot turned up.

** Please ignore the reflection over the pics as I forgot to take the pics before framing. Poor me , feeling so bad about it as I never fail to click pics of any of my smallest thing. **

My family loved it very very much.

Do let me know how you like it .

Trial with stamping ;)

Hello friends!! As you know I am not at all stamping gal.... I always get amazed looking at other crafters cards using stamps. I wonder where do they get such ideas from to use stamps. Its not an easy task :P

Well I don't have a lot of collection of stamps and inks... But from all I have I have tried to create this with using stamps is different styles. I loved vertical bars part the most , used polka dots washi tapes that I won from Rachana's candy  . Isn't it a subtle , peaceful card ?? Submitting it for  creativecardchallenge    and     Pretty Paper studio  .

Thanks a lot to the challenges for encouraging me to move out of my comfort zone and try something new.

A red , blue and pink card

Hello all !! This is my take on METAL-'URGE'Y  (ICR) as well as Color Bingo - red , blue and pink.

Made this card for two of the above challenges. Had a tough time on deciding on to papers and colors. But loved the end product. The blue pp is my win from hands2hearts and the pink floral one is from dear friend Darshana during ICR official meet held in Pune. I have used quilled royal flowers , sentiment is hand written using 3d outliner . I have used golden safety pins (as metal) to embellish butterfly's body.  The card is based on second sketch by ICR.

Hope you like it.
