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 and Thank You

Hi there,
A very Happy New Year to all my blog readers. Starting off this year as I mean to go on, with a blog post. I expect a lot of you are like me, with a lot of thank you's due to the people who kindly gave us Christmas gifts. This little card would fit the bill nicely. Here I've used an unusual colour scheme for me - chocolate and cream.  However, as always, this design could be made in a whole range of different colours.

I've used patterned paper from Stampin Up (long retired I'm afraid). The message is stamped and then punched out using Stampin Up punches. These punches are still available - contact me if you interested in purchasing any of them, as I have recently become a Stampin Up demo. Stampin Up products are not available on the high street, only through independent demonstrators. If you are interested in seeing more Stampin Up products take a look at my other blog Here
Of course the real point of interest on this card is the little spray of quilled flower - I love the effect of outlining the petals in brown and the leaves in cream. Very simple but effective.
Would you like to buy this card? It's available here.

Til next time, have fun!
