Stampin up mojo monday quilling technique punch rubber stamps video
Aren't those mod little flowers the bomb!  The technique of "quilling" was featured this month in my Stampin' Up! demonstrator magazine.  Once I saw how easy it was, I was hooked.  You'll definitely see more of this technique from me.  Today is also a new Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO205)


Paper Quilling offers so many 3-D possibilities.  Here's a quick video tutorial to share some of the basics to get you started!

      1. Mary, this reinforces my desire to do more paper quilling. Just tried my first one a couple of weeks ago while meeting Pam at a local craft shop that was doing make and takes with this technique. Your card is absolutely gorgeous… so sweet!

        Love this! Can’t believe I haven’t looked at the demo mag yet, so didn’t realize this was in there. Years ago I bought the quilling tool with the hole but never used it. I’ve always meant to, just never have. I’ll definitely need to do this now.

      3. So soft and pretty! I just love those flowers!! Great job!!

      4. WOW, I really like this card – great colors and so “clean and simple” – love it!!!

      5. Fabulous tutorial, Mary! Can’t wait to try it! And this card is adorable!

      6. I love your blog – the cards are always ‘out of the park’ hits, but it’s the information you provide on you video tutorials that just blow me away! TFS!

      7. Such a beautiful card and I’m so excited that I have the paper piercing tool to try it out as soon as I get off here!! Your tutorial is very helpful and it does sound simple. Thank You!

      8. This card takes the cake! I just LOVE it! Great job!

      9. SO beautifully done, Mary! I love the effect quilling provides and should break out my quilling tools as I’ve had them for years now. My mom was quite the master when she was younger and she taught me her secrets. The colors you used are beautiful as well!

      10. Mary, you have just changed my mind about quilling. I’ve seen it for years and simply ignored it because it’s not something ELSE I needed to get involved in. I spent less than a nano second on the article in Stampin’ Success, and couldn’t turn the page fast enough as I went right on past it. But this has given me reason to pause. The flowers you’ve made and the “string of pearls” made me go to the not-quite-finished stamping space this afternoon. TFS! ~Celia

      11. Mary-
        Your card is so soft and simple! I love the technique. I remember quilling in the 80’s and it was so complex- thanks for sharing the video- I believe I can actually do this again and enjoy it!

        Mary, your quilling turned out great. I have been playing with the technique, but have not made a card yet. Your video and card really want me to play more. Don’t we have fun?!? TFS

      13. This card is stunning. Thanks so much!

      14. This is darling!! I will have to go and try it as well! Thanks for sharing—

      15. Such an adorable card! What a great technique to give our cards a new look & we don’t even need to go buy the special quilling tools the stores are showing. Love the look you get also & so many possibilities. Thanks for sharing!

      16. Mary, I love your card. I love that you can use the paper piercer to twirl the paper, but they also sell a little quilling tool that holds the end into a slot so you can twist it a little easier. I purchased one at Joanne fabrics. I’m glad paper quilling is coming back because it adds so much to the card without being too bulky. Thanks for the tutorial.

      17. Mary, another WOW! Wonderful card and thanks for sharing the twilling – must try when my SU order comes with new score tools! The colors and the additions are super. I also cannot stop looking at it. Thanks, Mary!

      18. This is a beautiful card – I love the flowers.

      19. GREAT CARD!! I finally had a chance to read my demonstrator magazine yesterday and quilling was on my ‘to do’ list for the week! How’s that for timing? ;o) I watch you video before I give it a try on my own. Thanks, Mary!

      20. No, YOU are the bomb!!! This card is gorgeous. Wow!

      21. Very pretty indedd love it

      23. Oh this is adorable and the quilled flowers are perfect with that DSP! Great video as well!

      24. Oh, Mary! I haven’t used this paper yet, OR this technique, so thank you for the ideas!!

      25. Thank you Mary for showing us how easy this technique is. The DSP circles really set off the quilled flowers.

      26. Mary …. thank you for sharing this technique. This looks like so much fun! Your idea of placing the quilled flowers on designer paper circles (along with the cute dp leaves) is really the perfect addition! The color scheme you used on this card is BEAUTIFUL … I agree with Jan D. who posted that she can’t stop looking at this card! This is such lovely eye candy!

      27. Mary, I love quilling and I have even introduced it to my grandchildren and they love making different shapes. Thank you again for sharing.

      28. Love your card. Thanks for sharing the quilling. I saw the article and wanted to try it; you’ve convinced me it’s not as difficult as it seemed.

      29. Your cards never disappoint….I can’t stop looking at your card today. Love your tutorials, too. That’s how I have learned most of what I know about cardmaking. Love the “visual” aspect. TFS your wonderful talent.

      30. This card makes me want spring back. What a beautiful card to start the week out with.

      31. What a beautiful card! I love the colors and the quilling that you did on the card, such a sweet touch!

      32. Happy Monday! Your card is so fresh looking! Making me re-think that paper pack!

      33. Good morning, Mary: WOW!! this is just so pretty. I’ve seen quilling kits at the craft store but I’ve always been a bit hesitant to give this a try. This video is so great and you make it look so easy so, I will definetly will give it a try.
        Thank you for always teaching fun and easy techniques to make paper crafting such a joy.

      34. Very beautiful. I love the color… and your quilling is simple and perfect.
