Quilled Flowers

Hope everyone is OK..........sorry I've been a bit quiet, still playing catch up at work after a week away for the wedding and craft has had to take a bit of a back seat.

But I have managed to create one card using the brand new Cuttlebug Quilled Daisy Kit newly arrived at Sir Stampalot. The first delivery sold out double quick but more are on their way. I have always fancied having a go at quilling, but never quite got round to buying all the bits and pieces you need, so when I saw this set had to give it a go and so pleased I did because it is super easy. The set contains all the dies to cut the petal, stamens, central spin and leaves, plus has a quilling took and some wire stems.


I randomly stamped a card with Hero Arts F5942 leaf swirl and K5058 friendship writing using Tim Holtz bundled sage and Victorian Velvet. The Crate Paper DP down the side is punched with Martha Steward embossed butterflies and I used the little cut outs to decorate the finished card. I made two flowers with the quilling set using the same DP and created swirly stems with Sizzix dies run through the Big Shot. The little sentiment cut on Nesties is an unmounted one of which I have no idea of the make and I coloured some core with Copics to match.

This card is my entry for this weeks Tuesday Taggers who have the theme "all that Blooms", Everybody Art Challenges who want to see "Things with Wings" and A Spoonful of Sugar whose new theme is "Floral Delights".

  1. It's fab Brenda. I didn't even know this set existed. Love the papers used and the gorgeous stamped background and of course the MS border. I'd love that tiny butterfly one myself.
    A really beautiful card.

    Those flowers look gorgeous - much nicer than I imagined they would. Must be your brilliant paper choices.

  18. Hi Brenda!!!
    Like allways your work is stunning..I´d like to see the quilling thingi ...the gadget to make the flowers! I´m blogging my quilled flower in a bit but it looks very different from the beautiful once you made. I cut out a square and then cut of the corners...cut a spiral and then glue the rounded end to make the flower stick together!!
    Have a great evening
    Hugs Lina
