Quill Butterflies


I had a hard time making these kind of quilling butterflies at first.  But I was determined  to learn and then they were not so hard any  more because...... look at the butterflies that I've made.

I made more than these.  I used some of them on my cards.

Always a pleasure to have you stopped by my blog.

 I am off to the Valley Forge scrap booking convention now, Yay!!!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Final Press Cake Boxes

Hello Bloggers!

I really enjoyed making these Stampin' Up! cake boxes. I used Core Destination card stocks from Joann Fabric. The papers are shimmery and made such elegant cake boxes.  I made two sets of cake box.  I was planting to give them for raffle at the craft show but I think I am going to keep one set.

I made the top of the cake the same.

and here is  the individual cake box. I love those strips. they made the cake slices look so real!

Here is the side of one of the cake boxes.  I made this set first.  The scallop icing were made using circle scallop nestabillities.

Here is the side view of the second cake boxes. I love this one!

Aren't the bows and the pearls so elegant.  Here is the bow tutorial.  This is the set I am keeping.

Quill Monogram "H"

Hello Bloggers!

I had wanted to do this quill monogram "H" for quite sometime but I just wasn't ready.  It looked hard then I got bored with my card making and didn't want to do anything else so I thought it was time to try the letter.

I drew the "H" on grid paper then cut it out and traced it on the white card stock.  It's a little slanted.  You can find the tutorial here. My "H" was big.  It's 8 1/2" x 11". I got the frame from Big Lot.

My daughter wanted a pink one.  I wasn't too happy with the result.  I was trying to make the letter to fix in the box.

I was so happy I stumbled upon a blog recently that had a tutorial on making a square shadow box.  I played around a bit and  I made my shadow box 5 inches x 8 inches.  I'm hoping to share the tutorial soon.

Until then, happy quilling!

Black Just Believe Silhouette


I am still making  postage friendly card.  The image I used was from Stampin' Up! called Just Believe. It is very hard to see.  I sponged clouds behind the image.

I couldn't help but added the ribbon. 

Here is another one with no pop up embellishment.  I added die cut buttons.
Both cards are inspired from Split Coast Stampers.

Trellis Cards

Hello Bloggers!

I saw this card on Youtube and love it.  Then I also found a blog that had a flower tutorial that I couldn't resist.  I put the two tutorials together and made these cards.

For this card I used the Spellbinder die cut to cut the center out.  It was such a hazel trying to line the die cut on top of the two card stock.  

So for these two cards I just hand cut the rectangle shape out.   It was much easier. These two cards are much bigger than the first card.  These two cards measure 5 inches x 7 inches.  The first one is an A2 card.

I'm linking this card to

Altered Wooden Photo Frame

Hello Bloggers!

I'm sharing another altered wooden photo frame.

I really like the Stampin' Up! Riding Hood Red and Chocolate Chip with a touch of pearls.
You can fine the tutorial of how to alter the wooden frame here. But for this frame I cut out the heart shape in the center then I cut a small piece of paper and glue  in to cover the wooden area.  You can fine the flowers tutorial here. I'm using the same technique except for these flowers I used a die cut.

Thanks for looking.  Enjoy the weekend!

Quill Jewelry


I made these quill jewelry since last year but just finished putting them together.  They are very simple and like the one that I had made before.

 I saw this purple and black here.  Susan made the most elegant quilling.

I made this one for myself.  I just wanted something different.

I boxed them in Stampin' Up! match box with matching color.  The finished boxes looked something like this.
  I'm entering this to:
Take a Quill Pill

Bliss Note Card # 2

Hello Bloggers!

This is another eye catching card that I saw on SCS. The original card was in black and white.  I was working with Riding Hood Red and I didn't feel like cleaning the stamp so I made my card in Riding Hood Red.

Thanks for looking.

Clean and Simple Quilling Butterfly

Hello Bloggers!

Another great blog that I like to visit is the clean and simple stamping blog.

There are lots of simple yet pretty sketch that I can use.  For this card I used quilling butterfly and stamped the flourish stamp from Stampin' Up! called Priceless (retired).  The embossing section was also from SU embossing folder called Final Press.

Thank you for stopping by.

Crumb Cake Silhouette

Hello Bloggers!

I was making some quick and simple cards then got bored with the simple cards and made this card after seeing some cards on Split Coast Stampers.

At the same time, I was helping my daughter added some purple ink on her ink pad and somehow the ink got on my card.  Not a problem! the butterflies covered the purple ink nicely.  I added the crochet trim that I made.  I should made more crochet trim.  I thought it added elegant to the card.

To the Nine Note Cards

Hello Bloggers!

Goodness! it is July 1st already! And it is the 4th of July weekend.  I smell B.B.Q already.  If you are going to have burgers throw in an extra one for me because I'm coming. :)   

I didn't have the 4th of July card but I was making some quick, simple, and postage friendly cards.
 Some cards I made using the One Sheet Wonder technique and some I used the Clean and Simple technique.

The pattern papers were from SU called To the Nine.  I always leave all my cards blank both the front of the card and the inside of the card.

There are lots of  One Sheet Wonder templates out there but I somehow like this one the most.
Thanks for stopping by again.  Have a great weekend!  Enjoy the long weekend if you are in the states.
