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…

Pop up fish......

I can't remember exactly when my cute little aunt ordered this pop up birthday card from me, but it was definitely quite a while back. She constantly reminded me about it over and over again....week after week.....then days after days.....and yet I never came down to doing it until just a couple of days ago. Honestly I was literally out of mind was occupied with other orders and work that had to be done and I kept postponing making this birthday card for her cute little friend. Then when the time was running out, the deadline was drawing nearer and nearer, I had to force my brain to function otherwise my cute little aunt would murder me for not doing this for her hahaha......LOL!

Her cute little friend loves to go fishing......with her family whenever she has the spare time. So in other words, fishing is the theme and my cute little aunt wants it to be a pop up fish or a pop up sailing boat. I was thinking of doing that sailboat but in the end …

My first engagement invitation card

Phew! Finally all of the engagement invitation cards are done! Painstakingly made with lots of care and love as always. :) This engagement invitation card was custom made for a customer of mine from Sarawak. I almost wanted to turn down the order since I was afraid I couldn't get them all done on time.......but my customer managed to persuade me hehehehe......LOL

It looks like a simple design right? Nothing too fancy but when I got down to doing it in a large quantity I realized how hard it is to make them all by myself. This was a real challenge for me.

What I do love about this card design are the tag at the bottom of the card that has the initials of couples, with the gold strings on it too.....and the punch out engagement/wedding rings are so cute as well.....luckily I bought that craft punch when it was available at the store, so I can use it for this design and not have to cut out the rings one by one by hand. Ouch! That would have really hurt my hands. hehehe....


Happy 60th Birthday whenever it is.....


The photos of the card on top is an order I got from my customer to do a similar card just like HB031 but without the number 60th between the Happy Birthday......and she also wanted a 7 flower pop up inside it. I made something different with the flowers to make it look suitable for the card design. :)


Ain't it just simply sweet? I really adore this new combination of colors. This card design is actually a request from my own Mommy's for her school girls gathering. Ex-students from the Sultanah Asma Secondary School who were Form 5 students in 1967 will be doing a gathering in Alor Setar sometime in March for the reunion. So this birthday card is to commemorate the all of them will be turning 60 this year......whenever it is, which ever date or month it may be. So all of the ex students who will be attending this reunion will be getting o…

Slowly opening up the the see pop up hearts! :)


This card design is an order I got from one of my regular's her 1 year wedding anniversary hehehe.....and so it's the first time I had to make an anniversary card :). With this's always a first time for me to do anything hehehe......and she always make me try new kan???? :) She wanted a square card......and you know what??? I think I love this shape too! It's like one of those Memory Lane card shapes you can find in the market but this one is a bit smaller......couldn't make it any bigger than this! hehe!

I wanted to try a V fold pop up I tried making one....and realized that this po…
