Welcome to the House of Gilli design team hop! As part of the Gilli’s rubber stamp anniversary celebration….Gilli got a house!!!! Yeah! A cute rubber stamp that you can also make into your own little home!
You are about to go on a journey!!! We are opening the doors of the house of Gilli for you to have some fun!!!! Isn’t Gilli’s house a cool place? You will see a different take on this cute little house in each DT blog! I hope you will be inspired by this super sweet team!
Now it is my turn to let you into my house!
Come on in! Here the little home I created using the brand new Stamp “Gilli House”. I simply decorated the little house with an Autumn flair. A cozy little home with some cute flowers on the windowsill and a nice reef at the door : ). As you can see I colored the house with copic markers, but the cool thing was to add dimension and texture by using flower soft! I love this stuff! The flower on the windowsill just came to life!
I am already planning how I can change the décor and fit this little cute according to the seasons!
I think this card would be super cute as a house warming gift! Maybe a simple good fall wish card : ). I know you can make any way you like it!
For this project I used Gilli House Stamp, Copic markers, My Minds Eyes paper, Ribbon, Kraft paper, Twine and Flower soft.
Don’t forget to leave some love in each place (each blog listed) you drop by including this one. One person will be chosen randomly to win a GC for the Gilli Shop! So spread the word and come have fun with us!

Welcome to Fall Everyone!! This is Wini, from LooneyBugDesigns, with your new Challenge #17 today. Today’s Challenge is to make a Fall Card. Choose any aspect of fall that speaks to you and create a project. I hope you choose to join us – as always you do not need to use a Gilli on your project, but if you do you will get two entries into the chance to win a Great Gilli Goodie Bag!
Today I was inspired by this great quote “What Pensive Beauty Autumn Shows“ by William Wordsworth. It made me think of all the great fall colors and the feel of the autumn air. Shopper Gilli seemed a perfect fit for this card. I loved coloring her in earth tones with just a pop of color.

♥♥♥♥September 19 to October 19 :: Gilli Stamp Birthday Card drive for OWH
(Operation Write Home)
YOU COULD WIN A GILLI STAMP BASKET!!!!
One of the things that got me into card-making is how we all get together for a cause. No matter what, crafters all over the world pitch in with whatever they can. So I thought it would be a super fun idea to make a virtual drive for OPERATION WRITE HOME (OWH) to celebrate Gilli’s birthday month! OWH is a non-profit organization, which gathers handmade cards to be used by members of the armed forces in keeping in touch with their families while deployed! The troops do so much for all of us! Making a little something help make their lives and their families’ lives a little more pleasant is an honor!
Anary Design will coordinate the effort, performing a pre-triage, coordinating the collection of cards, inspecting, sorting, record keeping and forwarding to OWH.
What’s in it for you? In addition to the pleasure of helping out the troops, you can also be the winner of a great gift; a Gilli Basket full of goodies!!
Read on for full directions!
Let’s get started!!!
I know you will be needing some gift cardholders so here is one made with Graduation Gilli but I took her cap off and diploma out of her hand. Now she can be used for any occasion. I dry embossed the front oval and wet embossed the sentiment inside. For directions on how to make go to my blog
How are you all doing?! Oh I am so happy I am pulling out my Halloween decorations! The embossing challenge Vivi came up with gave me the right opportunity to get my cute little Cuttlebug Halloween Embossing Folders out and get in gear! Muahahha. So how do you like the transformation! Isn’t Gilli Balloon looking good on her good witch costume? lol. I colored Gilli with copic markers and added a few touches using copic multiliners and also white pen. Of course I had to sprinkle some sparkle with stickles.
Papers are bazzil and Authentique. The cool spider web frame was made using Martha Stewart punch. Oh I almost forgot…I distressed the edges of the papers with distress inks and added a little stickles to it.
This challenge brings me memories..I was very intrigued by embossing folders when I first started cardmaking! lol. More details about this project over my blog : ).
Now it is your turn to emboss away! We hope to see your project liked soon!
Copic markers, embossed the word surprise with a Versamark pen, and also used the Cuttlebug embossing folder.
First of all, I want to chance everyone that could participate! Great creations!!!
Hello Everyone!! So glad you were able to stop in today! It’s Wini from LooneyBugDesigns with my interpretation of an Easel Card with flowers for you today. This is my first attempt at an easel card – so if I can do it so can you!! Please make sure to enter your creation in the Inlinkz below for a chance to win a Gilli Goodie!! You do not have to use a Gilli stamp to participate but if you do, you will get an extra entry into the prize drawing!!!
Did you know that Gilli is turning 1 this month?? Well she is!! What does that mean? Well it means a PARTY – of course!! Stay tuned for more details. So in honor of her birthday I made her a birthday card. I used Balloon Gilli for this card – isn’t she beautiful? I also used some free digi stamps for the September Calendar and Sentiment.
So what do you think of this Easel card? Check out my blog for more details and to find out where you can get the free digi images I used.
Hello everyone! My turn to spread magical wishes upon all the crafters! lol I wish I could! For now we try to bring inspiration : )
My project today uses Gilli Fairy 2. I cannot get enough of this little cutie…and I bet you can use her in any card you wish! Jut like magic! : )
Gilli was colored with copic markers. Gilli Fairy 2 is seating on a stream of butterflies (Martha Stewart punch)..the butterflies and the papers were all distressed using Distress Inks. Touches of Stickles were added to the edges of all the paper pieces. Flowers from prima. Generic Skittles and tiny pearls are made of Liquid Pearls. Lace edges were created using Martha Stewart punch. The tag for sentiments was distressed using copic marker and a touch of stickles. This piece was punched using an EK punch.
I hope you will join us for the Easel plus Flower that Melanie is hosting! Also don’t forget…
SEPTEMBER IS GILLI BDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!
So Stay tuned for cool updates on how we will be celebrating with you!!!!!!!!!
