What is this blog?

This blog is about my crafts as I'm sure it's obvious, but rather specifically I post about my quilling. I suppose I didn't include quilling in the title simply because that would limit what I could put in this blog. In other words, 99% of this is in fact quilling.

There ARE periods where I don't post anything for a long time, but that doesn't mean I'm done with quilling! I'll post again. Eventually.

Mother's Day card

I made this card for my grandma for mother's day, and since she's coming over for Easter tonight, I made it early.  Though it may not look like much compared to what it could be, still, it took me easily between four and five hours.  That's what I get for making intricate flowers!  LOL.

Wedding Shower Boquet Card

Hey guys!  I haven't quilled in a while, I've been on a quilling break.  I made this card yesturday for a Wedding shower!  Funny story.  I had prom yesturday, and the shower is about 5 hours away from my house and I needed to sleep in from being up so late so I couldn't make it!  But, at least I could make a little card for the bride to be!

The green paper is actually new (well, I bought it a month or so ago, but I just opened it).  It's called leaf green, so I thought it would be fun to go for a "realistic look".  It's hard to tell, but I did stamp the background with a rolly stamp.  It was with white ink though.  I didn't want it to stand out because I wanted the quilling to play the main part, but I thought it would give it a little something extra!  I don't know if you can see it from this picture, it's mostly just a perspective thing, but I can see it!  It doesn't look super complicated, but it still took me two hours to make!  I was busy yesturday so I couldn't do more, but my mom liked its simplicity anyway.
