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…

Layers and layers of hearts....

It's been weeks since I last updated my blog.....I have been so busy making cards and keeping up with the orders plus I was also busy with the new blog I set up especially for my bead craft. Below are some few new card designs that I made recently for a new customer of mine. She loved the design I made for SGC003 (blue colour) as you can view here

It was a big order and she decided to have them in a variety of colours. So I gave it a go and came up with all these new colour combinations for SGC003. It now comes in colours of peach, yellow, beige, soft green and soft pink too. I packed them up 5 pieces in a packet with their handmade envelopes. It was quite a tough task to do this design in the amount of order requested.....I thought that it would be easy....never did I imagine the load of work that needs to be done for such a simple design. Layers and layers of heart shape paper was needed to make the main design and that itself has taken so much of my time. It indeed was a learni…

Soccer Dad...


Looks like I went button crazy again with this design hehehe......but it looks just right for the soccer ball motif since it has a round shape too! :) This design is especially for those fathers who loves soccer so much! A black and white colour choice that was inspired by the soccer ball itself....the inside of the card is left blank for your own personal wishes for your dear father.



Another similar design pattern for Father's Day.....simply titled DAD......the inside of the card is left blank for writing personal wishes....I love the colour combination here....the tile like pattern really stands out from the dark green background colour. The olive green coloured paper is just so sweet. All the square patterned paper are hand cut from a template I made myself. Even the word DAD is hand cut from a template...quite tricky but managed to pull through in the end hehehe..... :)

Happy Father's Day....


Wow.....I've been so busy making beaded bookmarks lately that I have been neglecting my card making....I guess the beads really got to me can it not...they are just so much fun to play with......well today I am posting this Father's Day card that I would like to share here. I guess with this project I got button crazy hehehe! Love using the the different coloured buttons to decorate the card :). I also wanted to use the new craft punch I got recently, it's a leaf cute...I've been searching for this pattern for quite sometime now and recently I bumped into it when shopping for new stuff. Inspired by the chess board and a mixture of ceramic tiles was what came to mind when searching for ideas......weird huh? Oh well! hehehe! I don't have a father to give this card to now, because my father passed away years ago.....this blue colour combination card is dedicated to him because he loved blue colours, just like me.... :)
