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!

Exotic flowers - quilled, of course!

Hello everyone,

Just popping in here quickly to show you a card I made recently for a customer. She liked this card:

but wanted the card matched to the colours of the wedding. Apparently the wedding is to be in Jamaica and the bridesmaids and groomsmen are wearing cornflower blue. The bride will be carrying  'exotic' Caribbean flowers! 

This is what I came up with:

I thought this was a good opportunity to experiment with a new technique for me - "beehive" flowers (the large orange and yellow flower). There are lots of videos about this technique on You Tube, if you want to have a go. 

The same customer (a regular!!) also ordered another wedding card, in a different colour scheme - I'll be back soon to show you that one.



  1. The original card is lovely (my fav colours) but the commission one is great I'm sure they will be thrilled. The beehive works really well.
    Well done for taking on the Guild membership - maybe see you at next years AGM!

  2. Thanks Jill - am looking forward to being more involved with the Guild,
