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…

A pink blue quilled bird

I'm so excited about this design. It's a request from my aunt actually. This birthday card is for her dear friend and ex boss hehehe! :) She wanted a birthday card with a bird on it. I am really out of ideas and I just did a simple design with the usual technique I've done before. Only this time around I made more branches and leaves but just one bird sitting on it. And the bird has an eye! A black eye with silver glitters on it...hahah...kinda funny looking though. By right it doesn't seem to make any sense how a bird can actually stay on the branch like that and not fall off of it! LOL! But in the art world....anything can happen hehe!
I also made a pop up cake inside it......a very soft color combination that would suit the colors of the card itself. Sweet pastel colors. :) I didn't print any wordings for the card but I did use a clear stamp to stamp the Happy Birthday wordings on the card. Love that one. That clear stamp is a gift from a dear friend. Thanks…

Colorful quilled gift cards

It's all done! Yay! All the gift cards are all done and ready for delivery. They will be delivered by hand. I sure hope my customer will love them. I had a great time making them. It's so easy to do and it's all about playing with colors. 
I wish I had time to do more but time is kinda limited right now and I'm only able to make 25 pieces of them. There is one of them that is soft lilac in color but the color doesn't seem to show very well in the photos.  In the photos it looks like blue. Don't know why. This is always the case whenever I take photos of that particular color paper. :(
My favourite would be the soft blue and the yellow ochre. Love those two color combination a lot :).

Quilled gift cards

What have I been up to lately? Well since my PC is down......I've been busy keeping up with small orders and I have also been busy doing this small project. It's an order I got from a dear friend. She has always been ordering gift cards from me. She uses them to put money in it and write in short wishes for wedding couples on their wedding day. I do the same as well if I ever go to weddings as I prefer to give money instead of giving gifts to the newlyweds. I believe they need the money more than another new iron hahaha. ;)
I've never made gift cards with quilled decos on them before so I thought of doing it this time around for her. Was planning on making multi colored gift cards, all in soft toned colors. The quilled flowers are just simple designs. Tried to make it as simple as possible coz I need to make a lot of these for her.
I'm not that happy with the color choices.....wish I can come up with some other color combination for the gift cards. I don't hate them.…

Black felt electric guitar

:) Finally I get to blog again here today hehehe with the help of my aunt's laptop again but but but......I'm not quite satisfied with the photos I'm sharing here with you today. Due to the problem with my PC, I am not able to upload photos I took of this new design using my digital camera...instead I had to use photos I took with my hand phone instead for this post today. The colors are not that clear and the sharpness of the photo is not up to my satisfaction either but no worries because I have kept the nice photos of this design elsewhere so that when my PC is fixed I will upload them here to replace the ones shown here today hehehe!
I've made an electric guitar before but I made it using foam can view the card I made before at the link HERE.......but this time around my customer insist that I use felt materials. I've never in my life used felt before in any of my card designs. I've never bought any before either. Luckily there are a …

Quilling paper!!

Gosh! I feel like it has been so so so long since I last saw my blog in a big screen! For the past few days now I've been looking at it through my small hand phone screen. I tried to blog using the hand phone but it seems to be taking so long to type a few words...and I just lost my patience. :P Right now I'm at my aunt's house and blogging using her laptop. Thank God! hehe! I'm still having problems with my PC ....not sure yet when it will be resolved. :(
I just wanted to update the blog today by saying a million thanks to my dear fellow blogger Cheryl for sending me this wonderful and lovely gifts! I received it a couple of days ago. I knew she was sending me something but didn't know what it was and what a lovely surprise it is! I received two sets of Acid Free Quilling paper from her! I love love love the colors she chose for me! Even my Mom loved it too! I feel very very blessed indeed! Thank you so much Cheryl!!! :)
I haven't the slightest clue of  what I …

Printed shirts

I received an order from a customer to make a birthday card for a teacher. And she requested the card to be made with combination from a couple of my previous designs. For the front design, she wanted a design that is similar to the design I made at the link HERE where I made some origami shirts.
For the inside of the card she wanted the pop up cake from the card I made in this design HERE , but instead of making 27 candles, I was asked to make only 25 of them since the person receiving this card will be 25 years old soon.
I took so much time making this card. Reason.......because the pattern paper I needed was out of stock. So I had to find a replacement for it that matches the blue color of the card. Luckily I found this particular pattern paper and it's the only one I have! No more available....huhu. I made the shirts dark red in color instead of dark blue and it's also because I ran out of the dark blue paper. So again I had to improvise. As long as the colors matc…

I'm so thankful that I can still blog even though I've got this problem with my PC. I'm really hoping that all this problem is just temporary so that I can do work without any worries.
Today I found out about this blog from Indonesia that's offering a blog candy I'm crazy about. Can you guess why? Well....if you didn't know yet, I'm a collector of clear stamps now.
