Quilling is Not as Easy as it Looks

The card I am sharing today is a quilling card. I only make these for special occasions because they take me a long time to make. (For those of you who do not know, I suffered an injury 3 years ago and have limited neck mobility and limited fine motor coordination in my left hand, etc.). I started making cards as my own form of occupational therapy (once a nurse, always a nurse).

My husband and I have a large, blended, crazy fun, extended family. Between us, we have happily blended six girls together (alright, adult women now, but forever my girls). The card I am sharing is for a 31st birthday that is coming up soon. The years sure pass quickly, don’t they?

I have taken a few classes from a master quiller (her work is amazing). You can find her card kits at her Etsy shop @HeirloomQuilling (Heidi Theon). If you find yourself in the Longview, Washington or the Portland, Oregon area, I suggest you take a peek at her card class schedule. You can also access a few good beginner videos on YouTube.

Of course, I am always happy I have my stash of Stampin’ Up supplies. Dimensionals, a small banner, pearls, ink, Wink of Stella and a few other supplies allowed me to modify the design of the card and make it my own.

Birthdays should always be celebrated! Now to find the perfect gift…

Colleen Light Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator and DIY Crafter I love all paper crafting and I’ve been a Stampin’ Up! Independent demonstrator since 2018. Not only do I love the Stampin’ Up products but I am also working towards my quilling accreditation through the Quilling Guild. You will see some of those cards pop up every now and then. I started this latest paper crafting hobby of mine following an accident. I use it as my own form of occupational therapy (we nurses can get creative with our therapies.. haha). What I found was a great admiration for my fellow creative demonstrators and a great sense of community. I especially enjoy sending out my hand-crafted cards. It makes me happy when people tell me they save the cards!! If you are in the United States, I would love to be your demonstrator or have you as a member of my team. Check out the details of becoming a demonstrator at my on-line store (the discounts are definitely helpful). Feel free to drop me a comment! I look forward to working with you.
