It’s Jo again. anaRy asked if I would mind filling in for Dionne for the next couple of challenges while she is moving. I am very happy to do so.
This challenge is to create a project using flourishes within the project.
I am using Cozy Gilli for my card. I have colored her with my copics. Can’t you just see her lounging on the rug in front of a roaring fire with a hot cup of coco?
The papers I used are from the My Mind’s Eye Lost & Found Christmas Collection as well as a Fancy Pants Designs Saint Nick Collection
I cut the bottom of the card with a Paper Trey Ink die and added a little bit of a white gel pen stitch to make it show up a little more.
My Flourishes were made with my Slice. I tried to match up some of the flourishes that are in the paper. I also added a chipboard star and some red hearts that I punched out to the area on the papers that had this design. I put them on foam dots to give the card a little dimension. The little “ Happy Holidays” stamp is a Studio G set I picked up at my local Walmart. The ribbon is some that I had in my collection.
I sure hope that you have been checking out the other beautiful cards that the Gilli DT’s have been posting. They sure are inspiring. I hope that you will join in on this challenge and let your creative side shine. Thanks for stopping by, see you soon.

Well moving on…My project to day is all about a cozy holiday! A new take in a holiday card . I used Gilli Cozy stamp and colored her with copic markers. LOL every time I see this stamp the first thing I notice is her little cute finger…LOLPapers from Authentique, DCWV and BoBunny. Ribbons from mike’s…my old stash lol. This was my first time using copic xpress and I love it! You should try!
Signing off wishing you a cozy holiday season and see you all soon!
isn't she a cutie. I have to tell ya, I showed my Mom this card last night and she really loves this image. I used my Copics to color her and hopefully she looks apple green :) A very dear friend gave me the ribbon and I thought it was perfect for this challenge.
You still have time to stop by and join in on our Monochromatic challenge, I hope you will :)
Hi Everyone! It’s Wini, from LooneyBugDesigns, with your Monochromatic Inspiration project for today! I can’t wait to see what you create – be sure to scroll down to the bottom of the page to enter your project into our challenge for your chance to win a great Gilli Goodie.
I used Graduate Gilli today. I started with a piece of Glossy Paper and used my Paisley Impressabillities to create the background texture. Then I added Alcohol Ink in Black and Silver Mixative to color the paper. I added some black lace and some black I-Rock faux brads. Some Black Recollections Mulberry Mini Roses (my favorite roses of all time) to anchor the card and add some more texture. My scalloped oval is cut from silver foil and I used dimensionals to give it some added depth.
Gilli is colored with my Copics. I sometimes struggle with getting enough dimension when I color with blacks – but I keep practicing. I added some silver pen to accent some of the folds in the graduation gown.
I can’t wait to see what you come up with for our Monochromatic Challenge!
It is my turn to show you a card for the Monochromatic Challenge over here at House of Gilli.
Hum, it was quite difficult for me to decide which stamp I was gonna color this time but then I thought this one would be nice for the monochromatic challenege.
Here is the Classy Gilli:
Isn`t she a cutie?? I colored her using copic markers BG78, BF75, BG70, E11, E00, R20, BG10.
I used the beaded oval nestie and the standard one to place my Gilli.
I cut the bottom paper with Martha Stewart punch and then punched another piece of paper few butteflies to place near the flowers.. These background paper is from DCWV.
I hope you like my card and come on over to play with us. Anary will give a gift bag to one lucky winner.
Thanks for stopping by today!
Hugs & Kisses
Hello hello everyone! Here I come with my Gilli monochromatic project! I loved this theme. I chose to do my card in earth tones…or maybe it was brown bag tones ? LOL. Anyway I decided to make a little funny card to joke with all my dear friends shoppers and partners in crime! lol
Gilli was colored with copic and all the details in her clothing made with white pen and copic multiliners. I was so glad to be able to make her shirt so feminine…just like her hair pins. I cannot tell you how many more ideas I have for this image. I hope to be able to share with all of you soon! : ). Papers are Authentique, Echo Park and MME. Frills were made using my silhouette sd cutter. Punches from Ek and Martha Stewart. No surprise all that blings is stikles! LOL
I hope you will have time to make a little project and join us for this challenge! Perhaps after that trip to the craft store ; )…lol
More details over my blog!
See ya’ll! Hugs
It’s Jo and I am back with my project as guest designer. This is my take on the monochromatic theme this week.
I am using Angel Gilli for my card. Isn’t she pretty. This is the second time that I have used Angel Gilli and I love coloring here. anaRy has designed her so that you can create pleats in her gown if you like. Coloring pleats and folds are one of my favorite types of coloring at the moment. I kept the card more on the simple side because I didn’t want to take away from Angel Gilli’s beauty. She is colored in the earth tones of copics.
The papers are from My Minds Eye Lost and Found Christmas collection. I love this collection of papers it is muted but yet with very pretty designs. I have also added a few brown pearls and brown satin ribbon to finish it off. I hope that you will jump in and give the monochromatic challenge a try.
I also want to take a moment to thank anaRy again for inviting me to be a guest designer. This has been fun.
I'm the hostess for this challenge. I love using monochromatic colors it gives you a very subtle yet beautiful look. I decided to use the new HOUSE stamp for this project, and a different type of fold on my card. I also picked a color that went well for winter. Enjoy and come back and check out my teammates take on this challenge.
See more details on this card at my BLOG !
This is Jo Ham, anaRy recently asked me to be a guest designer this month for The House of Gilli. I have to tell you I was thrilled when she did. Gilli stamps are some of the cutest stamps. Oh and Gilli just recently celebrated her 1st birthday. anaRy designs Gilli to be used in many different ways. She draws the images so that you can add your own creativity like adding a sleeve length or drawing a design on a dress. The possibilities are endless. I think that is one of the things that first caught my eye. anaRy also is very passionate about the quality of the stamps and that they are made in the USA. The stamps are deeply etched so none of the extra ink where you don’t want it. I can’t say enough about anaRy, she is one of the sweetest people I have meet.
I have been a crafter most of my life and I started stamping back in 1994 when someone gave me a card with a single image stamped and embossed on it. Boy I thought wow, I have to learn that. After lots of looking around, reading and traveling out of state to find stamps they started to catch on. I started with some stamps, markers and went on to stamp my first card. Then as it caught on more I got into embossing and coloring on different types of papers etc. We use to have two stamp store here but have since both went out of business like many. I started teaching at the stores and had so much fun teaching other the wonderful craft. Then the internet and stamping started taking off and that is how I found much of my supplies that and a local convention in Ocean City Maryland. I was introduced to Copic markers after taking a class in October of 2010 with the talented Suzanne Dean and I have not looked back since. Taking her class advise “practice, practice and practice some more”. I still feel like I learn something every day. I have meet so many wonderful people along my journey.
My card today is made with Lady Gilli
Lady Gilli was invited to a party and was able to walk down the red carpet. The challenge for The House of Gilli is to use texture and something recycled.
I created texture with my cuttlebug embossing folder for the layer at the bottom of the card and on the lenses of the camera.
The recycled items were items that were used in a note that was sent to me. The bakers twine and the Gilli postage and par avion that were stamped on the note. Of course I had to add a little bling. A girl can never have too much bling when walking the red carpet.
I hope you enjoyed my card, I know I had a blast making it. I will have a couple more photos on my blog
Have you been watching the site to see all the DT’s great inspiration for this challenge? Aren’t they fabulous?
I hope that you will join in on the challenge.
Thanks for stopping by today.
