Quilled Snowflakes and Lace 1

I`m very happy. Santa brought some snow, so Christmas morning we found white fields around the house. Not too much snow, yet enough to make us happy.
Even if I`m not able to work as I wished I had to honor some orders.
And because pleasure it`s important too, while working I tried this combination - quilling and lace.


I`ve decided to post more cards in which I used lace and quilling, but each one in a separate post.
For this one I just love the way white and blue look together.


I`m curious to know what you think about it`s simplicity.

Oh Christmas Tree...

Or could say Oh Christmas quilled tree, Oh Christmas quilled tree...
The last days were crazy and I`ve struggled to keep balance. Not so easy.. yet I try.
I love this new design. I`ll use fewer words and I`ll let you admire the cards.
First: green and white,




Second: red and green, (as you can see a not so good fast photo)


And third: my favourite combination wood and red and green and... oh


Now I appologize for not leaving too many comments on your blogs these days...
And I want to wish a Very Merry Christmas and Peace be upon you all these days and always.
Anca
Si trebuie neaparat sa va spun cateva cuvinte in romana pentru ca e limba noastra dulce. Craciun Fericit tuturor si multa Pace in suflete si in lume de Craciun si intotdeauna. Si sanatate. Si tot ce-i mai minunat si mai bun pentru toti.
Va pup cu drag,

Christmas quilling cards

Oh my dear ones I know these are some busy days for you, Christmas is so close! For today I have some Christmas cards in traditional colors - red and green. Just love them! I always tell to myself I should make more identical, I can`t help myself and for each one I find a new look. Here they are

Oh dragii mei stiu ca zilele acestea sunt pline pentru voi, Craciunul e imediat aici! Pentru azi am niste felicitari de Craciun in culori traditionale - rosu si verde. Le ador! Mereu imi propun sa fac mai multe identice, dar nu ma pot abtine sa nu le fac diferit. Iata-le


When making quilling snowflakes I feel strange, I struggle to create new patterns and then I find on other blogs a design just like mine. And searching on the internet I saw there are a lot of snowflakes` patterns that people are using and you can not find out who started. They belong to all of us. I think this is the beauty of quilling.

Ma simt ciudat cand fac fulgi pentru ca ma stradui sa creez modele noi, si la cateva zile gasesc pe alte bloguri modele asemanatoare, uneori chiar identice(!). Si am inceput sa ma documentez, modelele de fulgi circula si nu mai stii cine a inceput. Sunt ai tuturor. Cred ca aceasta este frumusetea lumii quilling.


For these cards I used acrylic stamps, StazOn ink and embossed cardstock. And of course... my beloved quilling ellements.

Pentru felicitarile acestea am folosit stampile acrilice, tus StazOn si carton embosat. Si bineinteles... quillingul pe care il ador ata de mult.



I enjoy so much what I`m doing, I discover this more often, and I`m waiting for the moment when I`ll be able to work with new textures (like fabrics). Maybe some of you already know this dream of mine, but it seems so hard to be reached. Making quilling is so comfortable for me... and I`m satisfied when I watch my creations, but when I try new things I don`t feel the same.

Imi place atat de mult ce fac, descopar asta tot mai des, si astept momentul cand voi putea incepe sa lucrez cu materiale noi (ma refer aici la textile). Poate unii stiti deja cat imi doresc asta, dar nu stiu cum se face ca nu reusesc sa ma apuc serios de lucru. Quillingul mi-e foarte la indemana si ma simt multumita cand imi privesc creatiile, ori cand incerc alte minuni nu sunt mereu asa de incantata. Oare sa fi capatat experienta si indemanare in acest domeniu?




I`m curious to know what you feel and think about them,
Sunt curioasa ce credeti despre ele,

Dreaming of a white fir

Hello again my friends!
Here I am today with a cute christmas tree for wich I used small (VERY SMALL) fringed flowers.


I had this idea some time ago but only now I can touch the result. I`ve made more trees like this one, it takes some time to fringe all those narrow strips, but it`s fun.


I'll enter this card to the CASE Study Challenge #69. Here`s the inspiration piece of this week.


And here is my case. I have to tell how great it was to play with an inspiring card. You have to make something that looks almost the same, but not exactly and from this game ideas keep comming.


I also enter this card to the next challenges:
my mum's craft shop challenges - where the theme is Traditional Christmas
for fun challenges - Christmas Sparkle
paper sundaes - Anything Christmas
basic grey challenges - anything goes


Stay close because I have more Christmas cards.
Hugs,
Anca

Steampunk quilling - Guest Designer for Scrapper in Romania

Buna tuturor :) Sunt toata un zambet si o bucurie pentru ca aceasta luna sunt guest designer pentru Scrapper in Romania.
Hello everyone :) I`m only smiles and happiness because this month I`m a guest designer for Scrapper in Romania.

Mi-a placut muuult de tot tema: Steampunk! Multumim Veronica pentru initierea in lumea steampunk.
The theme... oh the theme, I just love it: Steampunk! Thank you Veronica for initiating us.

Puteti citi aici interviul, puteti admira lucrarile echipei de design si va puteti inscrie la o noua provocare.
You can see here the DT creations and maybe use google translation to read my interview.

Si acum sa va arat ce am pregatit eu, ca mai pot de nerabdare! Un super album!
And now I`m so eager to show you what I`ve made. Here is my album!


Quilling si steampunk? Ce pot avea in comun?! Ei bine am gasit cate ceva... Un album decorat cu o cheie aurita...
Quilling and steampunk? What could they have in common?! Well I`ve found something... A golden key...


aripi...
wings...


rotite zimtate si o usa secreta...
a secret door...


hartie dintr-un dictionar francez vechi...
paper from an old french dictionary...

Ann Martin m-a inspirat pentru cheie, dar am creat un design propriu, si am patinat hartia cu auriu.
Ann Martin inspired me for the key, but I did my own design and I used some gold paint to make it look like this.

Si aici iata colajul cu imagini facut de echipa Scrapper.
And here is the collage made by the Scrapper team.


Cu drag,
Warm hugs,
Anca

Quilling snow

The first day of December is here. There are no snowflakes falling from the sky... But I have some quilling snowflakes. This year I tried to improve my favourite ones from the last year, I`ve made them a little bit smaller. And... they are blue!


This is not a card, I intend to make more cards using them. Here I arranged the snowflakes only for the pictures, just like that... and I love the way they look - like snow dust.



I`ve noticed many of you just love making quilling snowflakes. I feel the same. Only that I have some other projects I work at... Yet, when going to bed I imagine new cards designs for this season.



Waiting for the snowflakes to fall,
Anca
