Lady Gilli

Hello Friends,

It is time show you my card  for anything goes challenge over here at House of Gilli!

Oh, this is my first time using Lady Gilli from Winter Collection. You can get your Lady Gilli at Stamping Scrapping.

I colored my Lady Gilli with copic markers. I decided to do the paper piecing technique on her dress.
I just love this technique!

Background Papers I received in a paper swap.. love them...  I place my Gilli on a white cardstock cut with classic rectangule nestie and the purple one with scalloped rectangule nestie.. both using my Grand Calibur.

I added 2 purple crystal brads on the card!  and I also you Martha Stewart punch!
Flowers and ribbon are from my stash!

I hope you like my card and come on over to play with us!!!

Thanks for stopping by today!!

Hugs & Kisses,



Florist Gilli

Happy Friday to You and welcome to House of Gilli challenge #12!!!  You still have a few days to enter this challenge and a chance to win a Gilli goodie bag.  Can't get any easier than an Anything Goes challenge so be sure to join us!  My card is made using the Florist Gilli stamp.  I colored Gilli with Copics and paper pieced her shirt, then added some MS glitter to the polka dots.  I used My Minds Eye, Life of the Party dp which I absolutely love, and also some cute little flowers from Stamping Scrapping that I had in white and airbrushed with Copics.  Here's a look at Gilli:

Be sure to check out the brand new Gilli stamps here.  Thanks so much for stopping by; can't wait to see what you create!!!  Ann  :)


Anything Goes!!

Hi!  For my card today I used  Gilli Doctor and for her shirt I used the one from Tee Gilli and paper pieced it on.  I also used the stamp set from Stamping Scrapping Designs called Anglaise Lace.  I embossed the fuchsia paper with the Cuttlebug embossing folder Bloom Dots.  I hope you link up your Gilli anything goes card and play along too!  Thanks for stopping by!!  : )

This is my last day as a design team member and I just want to thank Anary for having me and wish her much luck in the future!!


Pretty in Pink

Hey everyone,
This is Dionne posting and I hope you are all trying to enjoy your summer as much as possible. I made my own version of a book marker for a friends daughter who loves pink. It has magnets in each half so they stay in the book.  She is very ill in a children's hospital and will be there for a long time. She loves when people read to her ,so I thought this would come  in handy. Can you guess what her favorite color is?  All girl I tell you. She also loves to swim so I thought Gilli Bloomers would suit her. Make sure you check out the new Gilli that were released at CHA they are soooo super awesome.


Getting Cozy!

Gilli Cozy_LoveS

My project for the anything goes challenge showcase Gilli Cozy! Ohhh I can see that many of us can relate to this picture LOL!

Gilli Cozy was colored with Copic markers. I used cryogen paper, can you see the nice sparkling over the copic colors? I just love the look this paper gives to the inked images. My base is made with Anglaise Die cut die. The die was embellished using stamp fro, StampingScrapping Design Stamps (they match with a ton of dies from Spellbinders). To give a different look I also colored the die cut with my copic marker…then added a little glitter on the top…I loved the soft sparkling look.

I created the sentiment by using 4 cuts from the smaller Anglaise die cut and stamped letters using memento ink (stamps from Studio G)…all the coloring was made using copics. The die cut was also inked using the little matching stamp from StampingScrapping designer stamp. Ribbons are Offray. For an extra touch a little pink twine to make it all girly : ).

I hope you liked the  project! So grab your coloring tools and your stamp! Make a project and join us for this “Anything goes challenge!”.


We hope to see you around for more inspiration! Keep in touch we will have more exciting news coming soon! Check out the New Gilli for CHA Summer!!!

Anything Gilli Goes!!

Hi Everyone!!  It’s Wini from LooneyBugDesigns with your new House of Gilli Challenge today!!  This time our challenge is ANYTHING GOES!!  So let’s see those great projects!  Create whatever your heart desires and be sure to enter it into our Inlinkz on the bottom of the page – for a chance to win a great Gilli prize!!  As usual, you do not have to use a Gilli on your project, but if you do you will get 2 entries into the prize drawing!!  How great is that??

Before I get to my project today - I have a VERY SPECIAL announcement for you!  This week at CHA the NEW GILLI'S will be announced!!  Yes that is right!! NEW GILLI'S!!!  They are being released on Tuesday, July 19th!!  Can you believe it??  New Gilli's!! 

My sister is getting married soon, so I have been working with Bride Gilli quite a bit.  I want to put together a fun little Gilli gift for her.  So today’s project is a set of coasters.  
Bride Coaster
These fun coasters are so easy to make.  I started with some tumbled tiles from Lowes and stamped Bride Gilli with StazOn ink.  Next I heat set it and then used Sharpie Markers to color her in.  Make sure you do not use your Copic’s when you use StazOn ink – as you can ruin your precious markers.  Now I wanted to make my coasters water proof – so after coloring them – you need to bake them in the oven for about 15-20 min.  That is it – no sealer needed!  I have made tiles like this before and have had no problems with them bleeding or running when wet.  My sister lives in South Carolina so it is important to have a coaster that will not run when she sets her ice tea glass on it.
Bride Coaster close
The tumbled tiles have grooves and flaws in some of them – so be sure to pick ones that fit with the theme you are wanting.  Here is a close up of some of the tile.
I can’t wait to see what you make!  Don’t forget to enter it below!!

Hi!!! You still have time to enter the challenge using ribbons and bows on your project.  I used Cowgirl Gilli for my card and she's available at Stamping Scrapping.  Here's my Gill; I picture her going out dancing:

I colored Gilli with Copics and gave her a little polka dot shirt with the markers, which are available here
Thanks so much for stopping by and remember you still have time to enter this challenge!  Ann


Ribbons and Bows!!!

Hi!  I chose Florist Gilli for my ribbon and bows challenge today.  I paper pieced her top and colored her with prismacolor pencils.  I used a Martha Stewart border punch and my cricut to cut out the banner and the tag.  I used other stamps from my stash and paper from Basic Grey and Wild Rose Studios.  I hope you link up your Gilli with ribbon and bows and play along with us!! 


Use Your Ribbon

Hey Everyone,
 It's time for my take on the Challenge Ribbons and Bows, and boy did I have fun being creative. The first thing I decided was that I want to do some ribbon weaving, so I want to my ribbon bin. I picked out scraps of blue,green,white, and added pink for pop. I then decided I wanted to use a different type of sentiment and thats how I decided on how to use my Gilli Lady stamp. I stamped a pattern on all my dresses in color ink and then used a Copic marker color to complement the ink. I hope you enjoy and give it a try.
