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!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to all my readers and followers.

Just popping in here quickly, to get the New Year off to a good start. This card was made for the birthday of my niece who celebrated her 13th birthday on Christmas Eve. It always seems such a shame to have a birthday so close to Christmas - never the same as when they are well spaced apart. One downside is that there is never anywhere for her to display her cards, as there are Christmas cards everywhere by that stage. However, I am hoping that this card was on display for a while at least.

This card is not a new design for me but I tweaked it a bit, as I was very short of time. For a start I usually die cut the letters for the greeting but decided instead to print it. The font I used is Hot Coffee I think, which is very similar to a Quickutz alphabet called Moxie. And then instead of adding quilled stems and leaves I cheated by using a punch - the leaves from the Stampin Up bird punch. The fringed flowers were made using a fringed quarter length strip of 6mm paper attached to a quarter length of contrasting 3mm. I always try to use 6mm rather than the more usual 5mm - JJ Quilling will cut papers in any width you need so its not a problem.

Hope you like the card. Will be back soon with another.
