Hope You are Feeling Better Soon





Today I was going through some of the drawers in my stamp room and found some flowers I had quilled some time ago.  I decided I should use them.  I thought maybe a basket of daisies would cheer someone up.  (My DD may need surgery in a few days, so I will give this card to her.)

I used four different Gina K Designs stamp sets for this card.  The background was stamped with Melanie's  "Inspiration Mosaic" on some swirled background paper.  The basket is from Gina's "Eclectic Summer" set.  I colored the basket then colored all the leaves and flowers in the basket green because I wanted to attach the daisies I made with some glue dots to fill the basket.  The butterfly is from Gina's "Take Flight".  It was colored with Copic markers then some turquoise Stickles was added to glitz it up.  It was attached with a piece of dimensional tape.  The verse is from Gina's "Elegant Flowers" set.  I forgot to mention that rust colored rhinestones were added to the middle of each daisy. 

Have you ever done quilling?  It is a lot of fun and will add a lot of dimension to your cards.

Hi Gina, I love your card. I've never done quilling but I've seen displays in stores. Looking at your wonderful flowers, I wouldn't have guessed they were "quilled". I thought that things that were quilled were swirled into circles or swirls.... I don't know if I'm making any sense. Do you have time to do a tutorial on how to make the flowers? They are really cute! :-)
