Hello Kitty Sunshine and Garden Fence Card

~ hello everyone ~
...says kitty :)

My classmate had a custom request for Hello Kitty on the same background as Totoro, for another classmate who was crazy about Hello Kitty - everything she comes to class with is either pink, sparkly or Hello Kitty themed : bags, shoes, clothes, down to her hair accessories and sparkly pink phone.

Added some bling to her bow and hem for extra sparkle! 

Her facial features were rather difficult because they were so tiny and I'd lose them as soon as I cut them.

A bigger bush than last time, and stray leaves on the ground to add a little liveliness.

Someone said Kitty looked Chinese because the dress is cheongsam-ish. What do you think? 

I wasn't entirely sure how to quill a cute enough Kitty, so I used Google for inspiration. Finally found a card by Cheryl which was based on another quiller's Kitty - I would link the post, but Cheryl's blog is now open to invited readers only. 

Oh well! Good day and hello everyone!


Update : Here is the link to Cheryl's post.

Quilled Flowers Card - If people were flowers you'd be the one I'd pick!

I've always loved flowers - and what a very lovely coincidence that it's perfect for quilling.

Rhinestones for sparkle and bling!



Just listed on Etsy - here.

Happy Valentine's Day everyone - hope you have a flowery day!

Christmas Tree Pop Up Card with Peeing Dog

Merry Christmas! (about a month late). This is a very late Christmas pop up I made with another Rich template. BOY was it complicated to cut.

So this was the way the tree left my house (a perfect square pyramid), but unfortunately when it arrived at the recipient's doorstep the tree's top section was flat and didn't pop the way it was supposed to =( 

I guess 2 weeks of being flat in the mail made it stay that way, because it was only paper. I did try using cardstock so it'd be more sturdy, but cardstock is much, MUCH harder to cut.

p.s. Dear You-Know-Who-You-Are, this was how it was supposed to look.

A little peek at the Dalmatian sneakily peeing in the tree, thinking no one can see her! 

Close up of the peeing leg. It was supposed to resemble the recipient's Dalmatian (and I even copied the spots from photos of her!) but apparently girl dogs do not pee that way. Whoops.

Simple card front, with a lacy border and taped ribbon.

This was the first version I made, with thick cardstock instead of paper. Sturdier but extremely tedious to cut, and I made a mistake by cutting one corner of the tree. I even coloured the lights with glitter! though the sparkle can't be seen in the photo. 

It was fun making this card! But I probably won't be doing it again anytime soon. Thanks for reading, have a sweet day everyone.

Quilled Sheep Thinking of Ewe (You) Love Card

My first "Thinking of You" card, which can be used for all occasions. But who says you need an occasion anyway? Nothing sweeter than a message to let that special person know that he/she is in your thoughts, any time of day! 

I must say, though I thoroughly enjoy crafting and quilling and exploring new ideas, the tech part of this does get a little tiring sometimes! Taking photographs (searching for good lighting and angles), editing photographs when they don't come out as an accurate depiction of the card, posting the pictures online, making a new listing on Etsy and Blogspot - wow! 

If only there was a Marketing Department :) but alas! I do not have that luxury.
