About Me

Chertsey, Surrey, United Kingdom
Hello, I'm Jill - mother of three grown up children and wife to Geoff. I have been crafting one way or another for as long as I can remember. In the1990's I discovered quilling and in 2009 I began selling my quilled card designs online (https://folksy.com/shops/PaperDaisyCardDesign) - this continues to go from strength to strength. My blog "Paper Daisy Cards" features my handmade cards, quilled or otherwise! More recently I re-discovered rubber stamping and became an Independent Stampin' Up! demonstrator, showcasing and selling high quality paper crafting materials including rubber stamps, inks, cardstock, punches and dies. My blog "Paper Daisy Crafting" features my creations made with Stampin' Up! products, a list of all the papercrafting classes I run, all the latest news and offers and a link to my online shop , so that you too can join in the fun!

Quilled 90th birthday card

Hi everyone,

I seem to have had a lot of requests recently for 90th and 100th birthday cards - seems like more and more people are living to see these ages nowadays. This is a card I made a while ago but haven't got around to photographing it until today.

The quilled flowers are mounted on an oval cut with a Nestabilities die and likewise the scallop mat. The message is punched out with a Stampin Up punch called Elegant Label, I think. Add a bit of chalking around the edge of the label, a piece of ribbon to mount it on and TA DA!!

Just off to list it in my Etsy shop. I have to admit my Folksy shop has been sadly neglected recently - I have had so many sales from Etsy that I've had very little time to maintain the other shop. However, I am wondering if the strong sales to the USA will continue after the huge hike in postage costs here in the UK this week. It now costs £3.30 to ship a card to the USA, Canada, Australia etc. Add the cost of a padded envelope etc and I really need to charge £3.50 for shipping!! At the moment I've increased it to £2.95 and I'll absorb the excess myself, but eventaulally I'll have to put them up.

Just before I sign off, I'd like to send birthday wishes for Friday to my crafting friend Lesley, who sometimes reads this blog I think. It's a very special birthday for her this year! I'll show you the card I made her next week.

Bye for now,
