How to make two tone tear drop shape quilling flowers

Image
We are coming close to mid February and I'm blogging about something that I did last January! LOL! It's been a month since I last blogged here. And soon enough, after this I'll be blogging a lot more on what I did last January because January was so packed with crafting activities. Unfortunately, I just didn't have the time to blog about them then.
Last year I made quite a lot of this two tone tear drop shape quilling flower for my customers. I made quite a lot of cute thank you cards for them and decorated them with this flower. I even made a birthday card with this type of flower. Since so may requested for a tutorial for this flower, I tried to make one for them. I don't always get some free time to do it, but when I do, I try to make a few if possible.
I do hope many enjoyed the tutorial I uploaded on YouTube.....and tried to make this flower your own. For those who didn't manage to check it out earlier at my YouTube channel, you can check it out at the v…

How to make a Teardrop Swirl Quilling flower tutorial

Image
Hello again! I'm so delighted to share with everyone here about this quilling flower tutorial that I uploaded on my YouTube channel yesterday. Those who subscribes to my YouTube channel probably have already watched the tutorial. If not, please head straight to the video now at the link HERE to find out how you can make this Teardrop Swirl quilling flower.


As always, I decided to share the tutorial because there was so many requests for it. I get most of the requests from my followers on Instagram. They have seen photos of the Teardrop Swirl quilling flowers that I shared there early this year. At the time I was still experimenting on the shape and method of making it so that the shape will always turn out the same each time I make it. Now that I am happy with the method, I could share how to make it with everyone :).
For this quilling flower, I still use the same tool to make it, which is the flea comb. Same with the Triangle Twist flower, I still comb 3 different coloured quill…

I'm so happy to post about my first quilling tutorial in 2019! Yay! Been so long since I made a post here or even made a quilling tutorial. Took a long break from work since October last year because I was not well. To be honest, I'm still not well now but I'm slowly healing and I wanted to make this video for all those who are fans of quilling and are a fan of making quilling vortex shapes. A lot of my followers on Instagram have been requesting as well for me to make this video for them. They have been waiting so long for this.
It may seem like I took my own sweet time to make it but that's only because I needed some time to make more experiments on it to make sure the flower looks identical every time I make it. I wanted it to be perfect so to speak because before this, I myself had a hard time making sure it looks the same every time I make it. So I couldn't make the video if I was not happy with it myself right?? Thank God that finally with a lot of patience,…

Goodbye and thank you 2018!

It's the last day of 2018. I feel a little sad because I was not able to fulfill a lot of things the past couple of months. I haven't been well since October and I have not made any new quilling tutorials since my last post. I vowed to take better care of my health in 2019 and I hope that I will be consistent this time around. 
A lot has happened since my last post here. It has been a real struggle to be creative and work when you are sick. But having said that, I am so grateful to God that even though I was sick, I was still able to create a little bit on some days that I felt a little better. Oh! Another thing I have to add here is that, I was also busy taking care of a little new born kitten at that time. You can click and read all about it at the link  of my personal blog --> HERE. Most of my Instagram followers already know about Stormy. I talk about her every other day. I also post a lot of my quilling work on my Instagram. You can view them at my Instagram link ---&…

How to make flowers using a quilling husking board

Image
Hello again!
It's October already and I have been having fun playing with new quilling tools! Oh yes! Believe it or not after 8 years of quilling, last month I got myself a quilling crimper and quilling husking board. First time ever trying out these tools and they are so much fun to use! Seriously!
I knew about the quilling crimper many years ago but never got one because the one I knew of was so expensive to buy until I found out about this cheap one! Hahaha! I immediately rushed to get it. It was worth it. It works really well so far and I've seen many other quillers using it and not having any problem with it at all so I'm glad I got it in the end.
As for the quilling husking board, I only found out about it a few weeks ago when I was browsing through Instagram. Saw a few quillers there who are using it and it seems like fun. I didn't know what it was called in the beginning because they didn't mention the name of the tool. It was such a long search before I f…

Rainbow coloured mandala

Image
At last I completed my rainbow coloured mandala yesterday. My first ever. So far, only one is done. I have to make at least 5  or more of this. Hope I won't get tired making so many of them.
I had a hard time deciding what quilling shapes and sizes I would choose to surround the rainbow shell shape petals. After a lot of trials and errors, this is what I came up with. The mandala itself is quite small and simple. I made it look a little fancy by adorning it with all those bling blings. 
After this, the next step is to put this mandala on my handmade cards. I think it would be great card for any occasion. Although making a quilling mandala means that you would have to make similar quilling shapes repeatedly, I'm surprised that I enjoyed it. It can be rather therapeutic! Indeed!
The only challenging thing about making this quilling mandala was making those rainbow shell shape petals. Which by the way, takes so long to make! Yikes! Other than that, it was easy peasy making those…

Rainbow shell shape quilling petals

Image
Just the other day, I thought that I could only use maximum four colours using the shell shape quilling method  But yesterday I realised that I could use more than that! I was just playing with the thought of using rainbow colours and tried it out first with my shredded papers to see if it could work. To my surprise, it did work although it was very time consuming and difficult to handle.
The shredded papers were a lot more difficult to handle because they are very small. They are 3mm wide and it seems that it's easier to use the 5mm quilling papers than the 3mm ones because when you've finished combing all the coloured papers, it's difficult to push the 3mm papers with the tweezers. So, I used the 5mm quilling papers instead. 
I really love how the petals turned out looking like heart shapes instead of shell shape. Especially the red and orange papers inside each petal. They really stand out. 
At first I did want to make flowers arrangement with the petals but I decided …

Four colours shell shape quilling flower

I made this flower a few days ago. Uploaded photos of them and a short video of it on Instagram first because I just couldn't wait to share them with everyone, as usual, hahaha. I need to learn to be more patient I guess and blog about it here first before sharing it anywhere else.
I was kinda obsessed with making those shell shapes petals over and over again. Then it occurred to me that I should try using more than 2 colours per petal and see how it would turn out. To be honest I think 4 colours is the limit for me! More than that, it would be so difficult for me to hold on to the petals without messing with it's shape.
The plastic lice comb is the most suitable comb to be used for me to make this 4 colours shell shape quilling flower. This is because the tooth of the comb is very small and thin. Thus giving more room to comb more layers of quilling paper. The bigger the tooth and larger gaps in between would make it harder to add a lot of layers. It's hard to explain, I…
