Passed from Mother to Daughter

I've always been proud that from an early age my Mam encouraged me to craft she makes some wonderful cards so I thought it would be nice to feature one of her creations,
This is a quilled bird that she first made for an Uncles Birthday and since then she has had many requests for her to make more, I think you can see why.
Although they take a long time to make she enjoys creating them and has made several in different colour ways.

I would love you to leave a comment for her, as she calls to my house on a Friday and it would be lovely for her to read what you think of her card

Tell your mum that her card is a fabulous work of art. I've never had the patience to try quilling myself, but the results are so beautiful I wish I knew how.

Hi Jak's Mum,

Your card is fantastic. I want to learn quilling and if I get to be half as good as you, I will be pleased.

Congratulations.

Lynn said...

What a spuerbly beautiful card and the quilling is so beautiful. Not surprising that she gets so many repeat orders for that. Could Jak's mum tell me please-do you use an outline for the bird and then quill the shapes to fill in??
Beautiful and thank for sharing.

Hello Mum of Jak! What an absolutely wonderful wee bird you have created. Of all the winter "babies", Chickadees are my alltime favorite. I will give you a big hand for all the patience it takes to do this type of papercraft, we all have our talents but this is not one of mine. I enjoy very much the talents of your lovely daughter, and can see where it springs from. You have both brightened my day with your contributions. Thanks ever so much.

What a beautiful bird and placed onto a beautiful card.

And Jak, those are gorgeous pins. I was browsing at my local craft store and couldn't figure out what to get, but I definitely will.

Cindy Holshouser said...

Wow! I tought myself to quill about 5 years ago but have never seen something so elaborate and beautiful as your bird. What a wonderful piece of art. I would love to see more of your work in the future!

Sharron Gregory said...

What an absolutely lovely card. I adore chickadees and I am so sorry that they are not as common in our area as they were a few years ago. Your mum is very talented. I can see why the demand is great for her cards! She should be so proud! You both do fantastic work....

sarita said...

this is so beautiful - great use of colors...Mum ya did good!

Theresa Tyree said...

OMGOSH! I had to go back and reread your post, Jak. You mean to say your MOM made this card? I'm so blown away! I can't believe the patience it must've taken to make all those beautiful quills. Now I see where you get your talent. It's outstanding! Give her a hug from me and tell her I said, "very nicely done!"

What a stunning and fabulous card - why Jak had to tell us it was a bird is beyond me though. It is however obvious where she gets her talents from.
I love quilling and would love to get my hands on more patterns.
Keep up the good work, and please show us more of your cards.

Lavender Rose said...

Absolutely stunning!!!!! I love the little bird, amazing to think it has all been quilled and so beautifully done too, really love this card, well done Jak's mum, you are very talented :) I think you should start your own blog showing your gorgeous cards!

Dawn said...

WOW Jak's Mam - you did real good. I tried Quilling once - but was not very good at it. Oh if I could only do what you have done.
For Jak - I just LOVE the way you speak about your lovely Mam. This will return to you in later life m'dear - what goes around comes around. LOVE your creativity and I can see that you honour your Mam for that.

What a beautiful card! The bird is spectacular!!! It looks just like the little black-capped chickadees that came to my window for food each morning this winter. Love the quilling as a 3-D element on a card.

Jak's Mum, that is so beautiful, you could image the bird just taking off and flying away. Stunning.

Sylv xx said...

Well done Mum. I think that is the best quilled card I have ever seen done it is beautiful. I personally dont like doing quilling as I find it to fiddly with Arthritic hands. But love to see others cards with it on.

Ann Whitfield said...

WOW this is breathtaking - wonderful work Jak's Mum.

Karla said...

Hi Jak's Mam,

your quilled card is absolutely gorgeous. I have a book on quilling but have never tried it but I think you have just made me want to.

Jenn said...

This is probably the finest example of quilling that I have ever seen. Just stunning!

Janey said...

Quilling has never appealed to me but then I've never seen anything as stunning as this! What a clever lady you are Jaks Mum. I now feel inspired to give it a go.
