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!

Something different

Hi everyone,

Hope you've had a happy weekend. Not the best weather here in Surrey, but that's just a good excuse for staying in and making cards!

Today I want to show some cards that are a little different from my usual style. I was inspired by a card I saw online somewhere - apologies for not being able to give credit, but I spend far too many hours every day surfing blogs and can't find the original source. Anyway, I have changed the design enough to make it mine.

I have a whole raft of birthdays of friends and relations in June and July so mass produced these cards to be ready and organised.

These colour combinations just make me sooooo happy!! A far cry from my usual colour palette of muted pastels, but I really love them. Which is your favourite?

I used a Sizzix embossing folder on the black card and the daisies are cut from a Sizzix die which I've had ages but not used much. There is a similar one (if not the same) in the current Stampin Up catalogue. Each daisy has a quilled fringed flower as a centre. The message banners on the pink and yellow cards are again from stash I've had ages - from Craftwork cards. I didn't have a turquoise one, so made it from a scrap of card and a peel off.

Hope you like them. Also hope none of my friends with birthdays coming up are reading this! Haha!
