Quilled Flower Card

Hi guys!

Today I'm gonna tell you about my new passion, quilling!! :D

Here’s a picture of the first quilled card that I made. Made it just for the fun of it. 

So I have something to share with you guys about quilling. You can find loads of quilling supplies in the market, such as quilling tools and papers.

But the good news is, you don’t have to buy any of these to quill! You can just get some coloured papers and cut them into strips of about 4mm of width (it's the perfect size in my point of view) and as for the quilling tool, get a toothpick and cut a small slit in it. Below you can see my quilling tools made from two toothpicks or kebab sticks rather. But don't make em from a small toothpicks because the smaller it gets the harder you will find it to quill.

And you can check out Yulia Brodskaya's creations here for inspiration.

If you have any questions please feel free to ask! :)

Valentine card

Hey guys,

Today I’m gonna tell you about the first order I got. T’was from a friend of mine for a V’day card.
The requirements were for it to be a white card with some bright blue design and it had to be simple with nothing written on it. So this is the card that I came up with.

If you look closely you can see a rose embossed in the heart. :) (Click on the picture to enlarge) 

My mom says it’s too simple. But I simply love this card! In my opinion it's elegant! So I guess there are two kinds of people. The ones who like simple cards and the ones who like complicated cards with lots of designs. Hehe. 

Wonder what my friend likes. :)

Valentine card - Gothic

These are the one of the Valentine cards that I told you guys about. :)

 I made this one for my other half. I've always wanted to make a Valentine card with a goth theme so thought I'd make it this Valentines.

This is an origami heart.You can find a lot of YouTube videos on origami. I also made a card with an origami shirt. I will post it soon! 

I wrote this inside the card. Saw a stamp like this when searching the net and I loved it. It gives a personal touch to the card.

Hope you enjoyed! See you soon!
