Heart Stealer 11

Hello All,

And a very quick Heart Stealer post yet is my first Quilling Class as a professional artist and I am all excited (and nervous!) about it.......this week's Heart Stealers are no strangers to the quilling world. While one of them is the undoubted queen with the quilling comb, the other spins magic with her quilling merging different elements. So, please take time out to congratulate Noor Azlina of Lin Handmade Greeting Cards (for her wonderful frame using quilling comb flowers) and Paula Rohrer Hogue of Chillin with Quillin (for her cute little bunch of 3D characters!).

Winners, please feel free to display the badge on your blog :) A huge congratulations to both of you! :)

Happy Quilling

Heart Stealer 10

Hello All,

Phew, it feels great to be able to write a post in time! :) Heart Stealer is back with its award for this week and I have two more people wowing me this week with their creations.

The first winner was largely unknown to me until very recently, she popped by and I stood up to take notice :)

The second winner also claims she is new to quilling and inspired by Yulia Brodskaya, but I think she has a natural knack for it.

So, please put your hands together for Shirin Akbany and Aditi Puri and their creations are:

Some other notable creations this week:

1. Neli's lovely Easter cards 
2. A beautiful garland card by Katrin
3. A beautiful 'friends' card by Miyyah
4. A beehive garland card by Philippa
5. A gorgeous quilled Om by Suganthi
6. Some awesome frame arts by Cristina
7. A super cute wedding card by Szalonaisa
8. A SUPER good creation by Miyyah (Miyyah, I secretly hope you have more spare books :D)
9. Smita's beautiful quilled garden
10. Vinotha's cheerful envelopes
11. A cute quilled heart by Gayatri
12. A beautiful flower bunch by Lekha

Heart Stealer 9

Hello All,

Oh well, not after one but two months, I am back with the Heart Stealer Award for quilling! It has been a LONG break but trust me, I had all valid reasons for not being able to post anything here. There was this big relocation to India and then, settling down and of course, the illnesses that followed. But we are all hale and hearty now.

This week, there were two very striking designs that I just HAD TO give this award to. And I am glad that Ihave a mix of a newbie and a veteran here, sharing this award. The first is a lady whose quilling is so characteristic that you look at it and you know it's hers (at least, I can make out in one look!). The second is a guy (Oh yes, men are doing wonders in an otherwise female domain now!!!) who I can say I've watched grow right under my eyes. He started off with some small cards etc but now, he is making full blown projects and creating ripples in the quilling world! So, please put your hands together for this week's winners: Miyyah and Aditya Khaitan :)

Here are the winner creations:

Miyyah's orchids look like they can be plucked and tucked behind your ear for that lovely beach party! Her blog is so full of amazing creations, it's like diving into art and coming out all soaked in beauty! :) Aditya, a young Bachelors' student, has a page to his credit already and dreams of spreading Art all over. This particular wedding gift knocked me out and made me look many times at it :)

I wish I had the time to list all the other noteworthy creations this week but I am really swamped with orders for now. I sure will edit this post as soon as I get time, so feel free to come back and look at news from the Quilling World :)

Winners, please feel free to grab the badge and display it on your page/blog :)

Adieu (and hoping I will post Heart Stealer posts regularly now)
