shaped card and finished quilled card

Hello and many thanks to everyone who sent me good wishes for my new venture, I am taking in my work tomorrow so I am hoping to see them in the shop by next week. I will let you all know how I get on.

I have finished my paper quilling card, it is a technique that I haven't tried before it was a bit slow learning at first but like anything else with a bit of time and patience things came together. I found this shoe pattern in a book I got from the library and there are lots more designes that I have seen on the internet.


This next card is one I made for the shop, I have cut the card out into the shape of a flower to make it look more interesting.

Embroidered Anniversary card and paper quilling

Hello everyone it has been a few days since I posted anything on my blog but things have been bussy. I have had a bit of luck with my cards, there is a shop opened in Wigan called Wiganplus and it is for local crafters to display and sell there work. When I saw a note in the window to say they wanted crafts for their shop I jumped at the chance and took a few of my cards to show them. They were very interested and would like to sell them in the shop. They keep them in for two months and if they do not sell you have to remove them but if they do sell they will keep on having them, so I am taking my cards at the end of this week to give them a try.

This week I have made this Anniversary card, not for the shop but for a friend



I have also been learning how to do paper quilling, this is my efforts so far.

More card making delights

Yes I have been busy again card making, I have found a good tip for all you card makers, I was looking at all the backing papers that you can buy when I had the idea of using wallpaper so I took a trip to the DIY shop and got lots and lots of wallpaper samples and I was amazed at what I came away with, I have now got a stash of all different colours and patterns for free.
Here is a few cards that I created this week.


The pink backing is a wallpaper sample. The tatting pattern is called Quantiesque Snowflake by Jon Yusoff.


This tatting design is called Rose Window by Jon Yusoff.


This card I made entirely from wallpaper samples, I made the oval frame by covering and sticking it to a backing then I cut out the roses and leaves from the wallpaper and used them like decoupage. The roses in the foreground were brought forward by by placing sticky pads behind.

These next two cards are what I made using my own designs.
