How to make two tone tear drop shape quilling flowers

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…

Subaru Impreza STI


Hari ni dalam sejarah.......for the first time ever, I did a design for the new year AND it's a car themed card! Gosh! I got an order from one of my darling customer who wanted a new year card with a car theme for her had to be either a Satria Neo or Subaru Impreza STI because he loves those type of cars. I love the design on the Subaru so I decided to do that one. After tons of research on the net to find the perfect image of the car, I found one that would be suitable and of course it had to be BLUE in color as it is his favorite!

I had a hard time figuring out how to do the usual lah!! hahaha....I always have that problem when it comes to designing. Just couldn't figure out where to put what! I just went blank for a few days until one day I just sat down and just did it! Time was running out and it had to be done by hook or by crook! Yikes! I really didn't want to disappoint my customer and so the panic began! hehehehe! However, I had to rem…

Purple flowers....

(This is a similar design like the one below but only has the wordings "Happy Birthday" on it without the person's name)


This card is another one of my experiments done for a customer of mine. One thing I have always had problems with is how to arrange the layout design on the card. I always have problems deciding where to place the wordings so that it does not bother the decorations. So that's how this layout came about. I made the wordings as part of the background design. The wordings where printed and cut out line by line.....and then glued on to the paper. The card itself is almost covered with all the decorations and wordings. You could only see the color of the card in between the lines wordings.

The flowers were cut by hand....the petals were traced from a template onto a metallic purple paper and I cut out each petal one by one with scissors, then layered it onto 2 more pieces of paper, one dark purple and the other is soft…

Merry Christmas everyone!


I just had to post this Christmas card design today before I leave for Alor Setar tomorrow morning!! hehehehe! :D I made it last night......and I got two more to do tonight if my eyes can still open! I'm just so tired but this is something that I just got to do. The cards are for my best buddies.....need to get it sent as soon as possible....before it's too late. Not sure if it will arrive on time, but at least I tried my level best to do it . I guess this is the only Christmas card design I manage to make this year......if I can find the time to do some more after I get back from my hometown then I can post it here. Till then, Merry Christmas everyone! :)

Happy Birthday Mom!


This card was made for my Mom's 59th birthday today.......I wanted to use that furry wire again and couldn't help but use it for her birthday card. I made this card in about an one fast because the time I had to make it was so limited. So I didn't even think much, I just did what I thought was ok. Gosh, if she knew this she would just fire me hehehe......but at least I managed to find the time to do it anyways even though my mind was not working too well lately. hahahaha....... :) Love you Mom.....Happy Birthday!!!!!!!!
This card is also so very suitable for Valentines can be given to your Mother on Valentines Day to show her how much you love her :). 

Just for you babe!


This must be one of the card designs that I love but, have to think many many times to do it again. It's because of the paper that I used to make the stems of the flowers. Gosh was it hard to make the flower stalks hug each other like that! :D hahaha LOL! The flower stalks are actually made of crepe paper which I folded and twisted so that it would look like a stalk. The wordings were hand written with a metallic silver stamping involved....hehehe.....

This particular card is made from a much softer paper (2 sheet card) :) it's not the usual thick paper that I normally use for my cards.....but I have always loved working with this type of material when I first started designing cards. You could see it in my earlier card collections.

The flowers are actually made using heart shape cut outs, served as petals to form the flowers. I've always love using that fact I have a few cards which I designed using this similar's not eas…

Kain Pelikat la la la la....... :D


Kain pelikat la la la la....kain pelikat la la la la.....kain pelikat selesa, memang selesaaaaaaaa...... ;D I got inspired to do a design that has a pelikat motif on it. I've always been interested in textile designs, especially the Malay fabrics....such as kain pelikat, batik, songket etc etc.

The different color paper strips were layered one by one on the card. It's quite mistake can ruin the whole thing. I simply chose the bright green color card as the base and mix it with red, purlpe and orange......the black is suppose to make it stand out. I think this card would be suitable to be given to a guy even though the color is a bit cheerful. :)

There is no wordings inside the card, I left it blank for writing on personal wishes. But if you want me to print out some special wordings for you, it can be done, no problem at all. :) The card comes with a matching bright orangy handmade envelope too.

Black package with gold paper ribbon...........

From the top it looks like a black box wrapped with a gold ribbon......and a small card pasted on top of it. But actually it's a card :) . This card design is so simple and clean cut. The tiny card is a folded card that can actually be written on the inside cute. And the wordings on it are handwritten, because I don't have a rubber stamp that is small enough to stamp on the tiny cream colored card. This card comes with a soft cream colored handmade envelope. The inside of the card is left blank and has a paper inserted in it for writing on personal wishes. :)

The furry wire experiment


It's been awhile since I last posted anything here.....been busy posting in my personal blog instead hehehe........ :D
I got this new material recently from the craft's a form of wire with furry rayon swirling around it. I'm not sure what they are actually called, so I guess I'll just call it the furry wire hehehe :D I bought two different colors of the wire, one red and the other is dark purplish pink. The dark purplish pink the one I'm using for this card design as it matches the purple card I'm using. They wires comes in a variety of colors.....namely blue, green, black, brown etc etc....will probably get more of them in future for me to use in my new designs.

For this particular design, I used the furry wire and form it into the shape of a heart. I love working with this wire as it is quite flexible....I haven't tried forming it into any other shapes yet. I have only tried the heart shapes for now. It is also not that hard to glue it on…

A wedding cake


This is a wedding card I made sometime ago but could not find it in my heart to sell nor to give it away hehehe......It is adorned with seed beads, sequins, ribbons and gold strings has no wordings whatsoever.....inside or outside. I have not decided yet on what to write :D. It's just an idea I had and just love leaving it that way. It has a bright yellow handmade envelope to match it and a yellow paper inserted inside it for writing on personal wishes :)

Wedding card for the sweetest bride......


This is a special card I made for my cute sis, Aleen.....for her wedding day... :) Her wedding day is on the 29th of November 2008. So I wanted to give her a special card on her special day.

I used a scented patterned paper to make the base of the card.....I simply decorated the card with laces and ribbons....sweet colors for a sweet girl. Well, that is how I see her....and that is how I try to convey in this card.

The front part of the card was also decorated with tiny heart shaped punched out paper....the heart shape paper is the same paper as the paper for the base of the card and by pasting them on the card, it somehow creates an illusion that the card is embossed with heart shapes. Pasting the heart shapes on the card one by one was not took sometime to get it done.....but the results was worth the trouble. The card has a matching peach colored handmade envelope and is decorated on the inside with a simple printed message for the bride.

Congratulations Dear...


A matching red hot envelope for the card

The tiniest paper cupcake I ever made ;)

I got an order to make a pop up card recently.....pretty excited about that :) My customer wanted the same design as the pop up card that I made a while back, but instead of writing wordings like "Happy Birthday Honey", she wanted it to be "Congratulations Dear". Well that was not a problem I made it just the way she requested.

The pop up lip and cupcakes inside the card is the same like the original design I made as you can see at the link HERE. However, the wordings inside had to be changed to suit the needs of my customer. One thing that I would like to mention here is that this is the first time I had to make the tiniest paper cupcake ever! hehehe......actually, my customer wanted a small photo of a cupcake beside her signature, but I decided to make one by hand instead. So tiny and cute! :)

More embossed gift cards!






I came up with another idea! I used the same technique....the same white embossed paper and same ribbon wrap idea except, instead of using white ribbons, I used a variety of soft sweet colored ribbons. I used purple, blue, green and peach, sweet! :) To match it up even more, I used matching colored handmade envelopes. Don't they just look so cute? hehehe......

Thank You Teacher


This is a new design I made last the whole day of yesterday hehehe.....I was brainstorming for new ideas on how to design a thank you card that is meant to be given to a lady teacher. A sweet customer of mine wanted a thank you card design that has soft colours and somehow combine it with an apple (a motif that is always used for teacher's greeting cards). My head just went spinning like crazy thinking of a few designs that would be suitable. I was running out of time.....and I knew I couldn't do anything that was too complicated otherwise it would take too long to complete it.....however I did came up with 2 designs for her to choose from. She finally chose this one and also these wordings that I found in the net for her. I love poems by Joanna Fuchs....they are beautiful.

I've always wanted to do something different everytime I design a new card. And this time around I tried stamping with the big letter stamps that I have. I've seen before in many…

Embossed gift card....


Ain't this cute! :) I just love making simple to make and look so cute...hehehe It's a gift card I designed that is suitable to be given together with your gift to that someone special.....or for weddings....

Cute pictures....

I got this really pretty wrapping paper with pictures of cute little boys and girls.....I just adore the colour they used for the pictures....the shades of brown, oranges, creams, black, soft green....just so pretty!

Then I cut them up along the lines....all of the pictures from the wrapping paper are not of the same size and it was really tricky to sort them and figure out how to use them in the best way. But I did a design for a card and some bookmarks too. I made a few paper beaded bookmark using those pictures as you can see above. Click here to view the bookmarks in detail in my bead blog.


I really like this card for it's colours.....the mix of brown, mustard yellow, gold and dark brown just suits each other real well. The dots of gold completes everything else. I used the picture from the wrapping had to be cut this way because the picture was not square or rectangular in shape. So decided to choose this shape as it is something different from what I have …
