Quilled Spring Flowers

Tags:
card, card making, cardmaking, flowers, quilled, quilling, spring,

Conjure up the scent of spring with this dainty floral collection from our new quilling designer, Claire Willis. The quilled petals are given structure by coating them in a layer of PVA glue, which when dry makes the finished pieces hold their shape really well. Arrange them on a card blank as you wish, or pop a bunch into a small vase to brighten up a mantlepiece.

Easy Triple Stamping

Tags:
card making, cardmaking, pyramage, stamping, technique, triple stamping,

What better way to send a ‘thank you’ to a friend than with a bright and impactful design. Here I’ve used a triple stamping technique where three pieces of card in different sizes are stacked up and stamped just once. When the layers are separated and matted with foam tape, it gives a raised appearance similar to pyramage. Bold images work really well for this technique, as some of the detail can be lost around the edge of the card pieces. I have used a lovely flower stamp by Woodware, but any bold florals from your stash would work well. Colour the images in your favourite medium, and you’ll have a perfect card to brighten up those dark January days.

Delicate Quilled Floral Designs

Tags:

Celebrate the arrival of spring with Janet Wilson’s delicate quilled designs.

Huskings quilling was first used (and probably devised) during the Georgian period and the technique is an excellent way to make odd shapes that don’t always work when the more traditional closed coils are used. Why not turn these lovely quilled blooms into greeting cards? Friends and family whose birthdays or anniversaries fall in the early part of year would really appreciate them. The snowdrop can also be used as an elegant embellishment for a sympathy or ‘get well soon’ card.
