Stroll Gilli

Hello Gilli Girls,
Vivi here with a card for the ribbon and sparkle challenge!
I picked stroll Gilli this time, take a look:
Decided to pick a color that  is not usual for me.. yellow…  so it would be a bit different…
and I wanted to color her hair different than brown.. so I picked the BV family..
Here are the materials:
Here a close up on the flowers so you can see the sparkle!!  I added a little bit on the brads too.. but, unfortunately, it cant be see when we take picture!
I hope you liked my card and come on over to play with us!
Have a lovely day!


Sparkling Fairy Gilli

     Hi ~ Keep those glittering cards coming!  I inked up Gilli Fairy 2 for this challenge.  My multi-colored ribbon is hiding a little bit, but I thought it looked pretty under my MS die cut flowers.  I added Glamour Dust glitter to the edge of Gilli's wings and the swirls of the paper.  The butterflies received a coating of Crystal Stickles.

     Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by,  Ann

Oh Pretty…. Ribbon and Sparkles

Jo here to host another fabulous challenge here at The House of Gilli.

Our theme this time around is “Ribbon and Sparkles”. There are so many pretty ribbons out there. If you are like me you have loads and loads of ribbons. Yes I am a bit obsessed with ribbons and bakers twine and paper well let’s not go there. LOL

We challenge you to show us what you have with Ribbon and Sparkles on it. If you have a Gilli we would love to see it, if not no worries we love seeing your projects.

Today I have for you Gilli as a cowgirl. Is’t she just adorable. She is all deck out in her cowgirl outfit for a night of dancing.

Gilli is colored with my copic markers and little extra shading is done with colored pencils. Gilli’s shirt is covered with sparkle aka stickles.

My paper is from K and Company Sweet Nectar. I matched the copic colors to the paper. I would not have thought about using yellow with the pink but I really like the way it looks together. My die cut is a new one that I just got from Cherry Lynn. My ribbon is some that I picked up from AC Moore on clearance. It is much prettier in person.

I added a few pearls around just for a little extra. I hope you will join us for our challenge. Be sure and put your entry in the INLINKZ at the bottom of the page.

Thanks for stopping by today and checking out House Of Gilli.

Lady Gilli and her large beautiful flower

Time for another Gilli stamps challenge and this one is an easy one for me..Flowers. I tend to use flowers on most of my cards and I own large buckets upon buckets of paper flowers that are just begging to be used.

On this card I tried something different. I am working on one of Suzanne Dean's copic classes at her copic site- Color Me Creative- and in class five we do Hispanic skin tones. This site is filled with classes you can take, lots of fun groups to join and just in general some awesome people to chat with. Back to my colouring of skin tones her class inspired me to do some internet searches for other colour combos for skin tones. I mean- we are all different- why keep using the same copic colours :) 

This is my first attempt outside of my standard colour combinations and while it still needs more work and practice I think it turned out okay. I really enjoyed breaking my routine and thinking of all my friends of different ethnic backgrounds and how much nicer it would be to give them a card with a girl coloured more to match their own skin tones. I am going to keep practicing and have fun trying new colour combos! 

To highlight my sassy Lady Gilli I added a big flower to set a festive air to the card. I then matched my papers to her dress and shoes and of course added some sparkle too. Lady Gilli always needs to sparkle! hee hee. 

I hope you play along with us over at House of Gilli and add flowers to your creations too!

Cheers, Andrea

The papers I have used are from the Imaginisce Garden Party collection.

The flowers were created using Lifestyles die cut that a good friend gave me. A little white seam binding for the bow and some pearls.

Doesn’t Gilli look like she is stepping up to the counter to help you pick out that special flower arrangement?

I hope you will join us for the challenge here. If you have a Gilli stamp we would love to see it, if not no worries we love seeing what you come up with using our theme of flowers.

Challenge #31: Flowers

Happy Monday everyone. Today we are starting a brand new challenge here at House of Gilli: Flowers. I would like to thank everyone for all the beautiful entries for the White with one Color challenge.

I saw this easel card and thought it would be fun to try to create with Sitting Bride Gilli, who I naturally colored with Copics :)  For my flowers I used the Spellbinders Die, Rose Creations, I just love these dies. My papers are embossed using Cuttlebug Embossing folders: D'vine Swirl and Floral Fantasy.

This challenge will end on March 22nd, so we hope you will stop by and join in :)  Cannot wait to see what you all create.

A portrait of Lady Gilli

I'm back again today with a card featuring Lady Gilli for the current challenge at the House of Gilli blog! Our current challenge is to use white and only one other colour on your card. Thankfully we are also allowed to use our skin and hair colours as usual but other than that it must be white and one colour- in my case pink!

I actually coloured Lady Gilli in fully but I wasn't fond of how I coloured the pleats in her dress. I really liked everything else though and I was bummed at the thought of throwing it out and starting over. After a few minutes of sulking (hee hee) I got the idea to just frame her face and make her into a portrait. I think it turned out great and I got to keep the part of the image I really liked my  colouring on. Keep that in mind next time you make a booboo on your card too. Maybe you can salvage part of the image like I did today and take your card into a whole other direction. 

I then wanted the card base to really stand out so I used a Baroque embossing folder to make my white card base pop! I added a frame behind Lady Gilli and decorated it with crystals as I would imagine a ritzy frame would look like on her dresser lol. Some butterflies and a bow finished it off. Voila!

So come and play along with us at H.O.G. Scroll down below this post and you can also see more lovely inspiration from my fellow DT members. 

Cheers! Andrea
