Relax my friend! Gilli Florist by Guest DT Marti Wills!

Today we have a very special guest in the house! The talented designer Marti Wills!! Gilli asked Marti a few quick questions for us to learn a bit about Marti and what she is up to!

I have been crafting for as long as i remember.  Paper and mixed media are my favorites.
· What do you like best about Gilli Stamps?

· Tell us a little about yourself.
I am a work at home mom with 2 grown boys and a 4 year old daughter.  I work as a designer for a number of paper crafting companies, co-own a crafting mini magazine, Through the Craft Room Door & I do digital design work for companies and private people. 
Thank you Marti! Now let’s see what you created for us!
I created a little gift set to encourage some relaxation for a friend - it is an embossed metal bucket lined with a stamped napkin.  Then I filled it with a good book (Gate to Women's Country), a some scented lotion, a decorated candle and a card with a little pocket for tea inside.
The napkin was stamped using VersaCraft Ink pads and colored with Fabrico Markers - both can be machine laundered with no fading - even when using bleach or washing in hot water.  simply heat set with an iron when you are done.  The ribbon is attached with iron on Heat-n-Bond.  The pearls are done with Liquid Pearls.
The candle was a plain white candle.  I simply took Alcohol Ink and covered the candle.  then I adhered a ribbon around it and added some pearls with Liquid Pearls.
The adorable Florist Gilli on the card is colored using Prisma Colored Pencils.  i cut the panel on the front using The Elegant Edges Cricut Cartridges.  the pocket on the inside was cut using the Fabulous Finds Cricut Cartridge.
The two shimmering pink flower embellishments were made using Pardo Polymer Clay and a silicone mold.  They are quite easy to do - in fact they are so easy you can see 4 year old Pezza making them and showing you how in this video*!
* You will be able to see this adorable video tomorrow (Monday) at Marti’s blog!! You cannot miss! Little Pez is a whiz when it comes to crafts! Martha be aware! : )
