Butterfly card - DT Cathy

We're all a flutter this month creating beautiful butterflies for our challenge.

I was super excited for this challenge as butterflies are one of the first things I created years ago. I still love making them and trying out new designs. For this card I chose a simple two colour butterfly using crimped paper strips.

Come play along and remember to link your entry to the first post this month.

Till next time.

Flutterby--DT SubhaVivek

Hi crafty followers,


The challenge for the month of May at IQCG is to quill a butterfly.  Who does not love butterflies?  And so do I.  I have a butterfly garden in my backyard and I thoroughly enjoy my summer months  watching these flutterby’s.  There are innumerable colours and patterns found in this fairy tale insects.  And here is my inspiration for you. 
Recent addition to my craft space is CRICUT machine.  Just learning to use it and I thought this is the best opportunity to put my cricut to use. I cut out a butterfly in black cardstock.


  Blue is always dreamy. And so I decided to quill my butterfly in blue.  Blue is mesmerizing and mystic.

 I used two different shades of blue to quill over it.  Made some highlights with white gel pen and my blue butterfly is bubbling with life.    Isn’t it beautiful?

Beautiful as a butterfly - DT Ishani

Hello dear Quillers,

I am Ishani from Quillish and am here to inspire you to join us in this month's challenge , where we want you to incorporate a quilled butterfly.


I made my butterfly free hand and then did some experiment in the design with blues and white. I must confess that getting a symmetric butterfly is very difficult till you have a sketch/print of a butterfly. So I thought of a design where it doesn't have to be a very symmetric design. I cut a 180 gsm strip for the outer border of my image and then used 3mm strips for the inside. I used a stencil for my background and a sentiment

ATCs -iqcg57


Hello Craft lovers,

Welcome to the new challenge for April. This month we are going to play with ATCs (Artist Trading Card).

Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) are miniature piece of art that are traded around the world. Artists create trade and collect art at organized “swap” events, either in person or online. The only official rule for ATCs is the size: 2.5” x 3.5”. These are small and self-made miniature works of art. Other than the size, there are no particular rules to follow. Most swaps are open to any media, materials or techniques. ATCs are not meant to be sold.


I used 3 mm quilling strips for the flowers and for the background I used water colours.


Hope my work inspired you. So take out your quilling stripes and join our April month challenge. 

Now the stage is open for all of you to showcase your talent and win exciting goodies from Shylaa.

ATC Cards with buzzing bees

Our theme this month is all about ATC Cards. As I have never made these before it was a challenge to figure out how and what... but once I understood the basics it was fairly simple. Don't over think this one.. just make some small cards and embellish.

Speaking of embellishing...I choose a buzzy bee theme for all three of my cards:

I quilled the bees to fly in various positions and then added them on top of some diecut honeycomb. I also diecut the words to add an extra smile.

Come join in the challenge and remember to link your entry to the first post this month.

Till next time,

Birthday Themed ATC's --DT Subha Vivek

Hi  IQCG followers,
Good day to you all.









  I  enjoyed creating this inspiration for you.   Artist Trading Cards (ATC's) are typically samples of creative work made primarily to exchange with artists.  I decided to give it a twist by making it in a birthday theme so that it can be used as a mini card also.

It is indeed a challenge to make tiny quilled embellishments with paper widths of 3mm or less.  Look for birthday balloons, party hat, cake, gifts etc on my ATC's.

I stamped a banner  and birthday sentiment on to a cardstock measuring 2.5 x3.5 inches. Embellished them with quilled balloons, birthday cake, party hat, and gift.
