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…

My latest quilling kit for quilling beginners

I think I have changed my quilling kit/set for several times over the years. This latest one is my favourite so far. My most favourite item inside the kit would definitely be my slotted quilling tool. I used quilling papers as decorations inside the tool. All the colours of the rainbow. I love it :).
Another cool item in the quilling kit is of course the small nozzle white glue. The small nozzle makes it easier for us to apply the white glue on quilling paper. Easy to clean and easy to refill the white glue once the bottle is empty.
I'm selling the quilling kit specifically for quilling beginners who are looking for cheap alternatives when buying quilling tools. As we all know, not all of us can afford expensive craft tools and I'm just doing this to help those who are in need. I was one of them and I sure wished someone could provide the cheap alternatives back then. But since there weren't any, I had to resort to buy the expensive ones.

Big brown quilling teddy bears

These quilling teddy bears were created in October this year when I was high on making my quilling teddy bear tutorial. After making those small colourful quilling teddy bears, I just had to try to redo my old big brown quilling teddy bears that I created years ago. 
The old design was special in its own way and I only made minor changes to it to give it a new life. I must say I adore the new one more as it has some nice facial makeover haha! 
I pasted these big brown quilling teddy bears on a gold die-cut card stock as they are flying to USA to see my good friend there. I didn't want the quilling teddy bears to get spoiled in the flight so I thought this is a good way to get them there in good condition. Plus, my friend can easily use them as decorations on her handmade cards etc if she wishes. She has never done quilling before and I was afraid that she might not know how to handle these quilling pieces. So by gluing them for her on the die-cuts, it would be easy for her to han…

Welcoming a new born baby boy

I got a request to make a new baby card for a new born baby boy and I was excited to try using those 3D pop up stickers that I bought last year.  I remember using something similar on a new baby girl card I did before. You can view that card at the link HERE. When I did that new baby girl swing card last year, I wanted to do a baby boy version of it too but never got around to doing it till now.

The design for both cards are more or like the same except for the colours and some minor details. I wanted the baby boy card to have the same polka dot pattern paper but since I didn't have one on hand, I decided to create my own using some teeny tiny dots made from a craft punch. I just love doing that on my handmade cards. I've done it so many times before. It's a good way to fill up an empty space and make it look more exciting and interesting.

I actually like to sew on felt but as usual I'm just too busy with other projects to do so. But for this card I do get to sew…
