Quilling Birthday Card

Today’s card is a birthday card using the quilling technique. There are some fabulous YouTube videos out there that will help with learning technique. If you can, I would suggest you take classes from an accredited quilling instructor. It takes about 3 yrs (!!!) to become accredited, so I have a ways to go. This is one of Heidi Bishop’s designs. Take a moment to check out her Etsy site @ HeirloomQuilling.

The Stampin’ Up products worked perfectly for this design. For the background, I used the retired Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper, along with Poppy Parade and Whisper White card stock. The “Happy Birthday” tag was cut out using the Layering Circle Dies and stamped with Poppy Parade ink. The Wink of Stella glitter pen was used on the tips of the tulips to give them extra sparkle. I added some ribbon and bling to complete this project.

I loved making this card for my daughter. It reminds me of her…happy and sparkly. She plans on framing it which makes me very happy (I did include a white frame with her other gifts).

Wishing you all good health. Happy Crafting….Colleen

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.
