Hi icon ArcheoButerfliesello everybody! Welcome to atelie. My home for my general crafts aside my first passion designing Gilli rubber stamps ; ) at anaRydesign. Today we are saying thank you to all the companies that provided some of the pretty things we use over SSCC blog. I am thankful for being able to experiment and share ideas using these products.
My project today uses Lalaland Stamp – Marcy. She is a cutie. Isn’t she? I have a super cute idea for the future using this stamp…can you say a fun time with Gilli stamp? I colored Marcy using my preferred coloring tool. Copic markers. The beautiful background paper is part of the new Basic Gray paper collection. The colors of the paper blends in so nicely no matter piece you pick : ). The delicate frame is part of the new release of Spellbinder™…this cut is called Fleur de lis (I used my time saver here…Grand caliber, the huge base is perfect for cutting many die cuts  in one run. The lovely stamp design on the frame is from the matching stamp set Fleur de Lis from StampingScrapping design stamps. It was super easy to create my card base with my score pal, gosh what a simple and neat tool…gives a beautiful crease every time.
Well it is time to say thank you creative partners…so I did what a crafter and added a little a thank you note using Frou Frou die cut tag…a die cut from anaRyDesign & StampingScrapping die cuts line. The delicate design and the tiny thank you is part of the Frou Frou stamp set from StampingScrapping design stamps.
I hope you are having fun and getting lots of inspiration from my lovely DT friends over SSCC…so many ideas so many pretty things to try…thanks to our lovely creative partners Smile. Keep in touch. Huggies! Now you will be heading to lovely Billie!

I love their papers…so happy! The skitles are generic.

Gilli Victorian :: Playing dress up! It’s spring!


Hi icon ArcheoButerfliesey!!!!!!!!!!!! Guys, guys!!!! Spring is here!!!!! OMG! It is official! I think all of us up north is super duper ready for a little sun! The winter was so harsh that the crocuses are popping out late….together with the daffodils! LOL. Well usually I see some stubborn crocuses coming out with snow on the ground…not this year!

GilliVictorian_Violet&Cream_frontWith spring a whole new season of good things will be happening! Flea Markets, Yard sales, Festivals!!!!!!!!! YEAH!!! I said festivals! HAPPY PURIM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Today we got to celebrate Purim…Today is a day to be merry and celebrate…for that we also wear costumes! Gilli as you can see is ready to go!!! She is doubling the party because she is also having a ball with lovely friend Suzanne J. Dean over CCMC during the birthday week!!! This project is part of the Color challenge (hey! you can win some cool stuff!!).


For this project I used Gilli Victorian stamp over cryogen paper. Inked with memento ink. Gilli was colored using copic markers and the lace detail on her top was made using copic multiliners (I am hooked). All the layers in the card were made using K&Co paper and Cardstock from stash. All the bling..yeap Stikles. My best friend when I need bling in a hurry and don’t want to mess with real glittah (witch I LOVE!). The swirls and the die cut is from my silhouette (on line..I thin these guys are from Samantha Walker..need to check) library…gosh I love this machine (ask Cindy to price for you if you don’t see in store). Gilli earrings, lovely pearls, were made with pearl pen…so as the delicate detail ( I draw the little swirls on the die cut) on her frame. I added a little distress ink to give a soothing and better transitional effect between the layers of paper…it worked…dontcha think?! My favorite part of this project? The lace blouse and the white gloves!


I am soooo ready to PAR-TY! LOL. I have been working hard…I need some FUN! Humm maybe I will share some cool pictures with you all later…we will see LOL. For now I will leave you with Gilli! Don’t forget to pop over CMCC for the party!!! I will drop by too…the girls are having the time of her lives!

Easter tag


Hi icon ArcheoButerfliesummm!Humm! Yummy! Season for chocolate is just around the corner. I think it is soooo cute to see the kids looking around hunting for those pretty colored eggs! That is one of the times you see kids doing kid stuff…now a days it seems the whole world keep on pushing the poor things to grow up soo fast…It is good to see moments like that..like egg hunts!


My turn to host a little challenge over MSL Challenge..and the theme is…DIE CUTS! Yeap…well I can say I am hooked. I use die cuts in almost project I make! : ) Just love these babies! For this project I am using a Magnolia stamp based on a Anglaise die cut from anaRyDesign & StampingScrapping line (developing this dies was a super cool process I wish you all could sit down and brain storm with Cindy : )). The paper is from K&company. To create the gift tag I just tied a thread through the very handy loops of the Anglaise die cut. The sentiment was made using jewelry tag punch from SU and copic multiliner…a touch of color was added by using distress inks. Ahh you though I had forgotten…I added stikles for added glam!Seriously easy!

Now it is your turn to pull out your die cut and make your magic work! Don’t forget to show off over MSL challenge, deal? See you all soon!

Buttons & Bling


Hi icon ArcheoButerfliesello everyone! Ahh it is good to change seasons…Change of season is something I will never get tired of. I enjoy every single one. Each season brings new and fresh inspiration and lots of  ideas!


Today I have a very simple project based of the MSL challenge Buttons & Bling…hello that is me all over! LOL. That is easy breezy (hey join us over there you can get a GC for StampingScrapping…Cindy is just getting CHA goods in!!). I colored my Magnolia stamp with copic markers and added a little stikles (I cannot live without this stuff..lol although I do like the hard core glitter too! LOL). My papers are from K&company and a little cardstock from stash. Maggie is sitting pretty on a Frou Frou die cut (cut with my bad boy Grand caliber)…stamped with matching Frou Frou Stamping Scrapping design stamp…the impression is super good..I love the little tiny dots around the circle…so darn cute! For added touch, distress inks around the card edges. Added a little button here and there…tied a little thread and va-vom…you got a nice card Smile…I should say envelope card thanks to my loyal score pal..lol.

See you around soon…I will keep the card making machine on! Watch out!!




Gilli Jeans :: Baby on Board!! & News!

Hi icon ArcheoButerfliesello Hello! I have great news to share!
Starting this week I will be participating as a Design Team over Color me Creative Challenge Group by my dear friend Suzanne J. Dean. I am sure I will have a great time! SUCH A JOY to be giving a little hand to my buddy and also having fun with great people that have one passion in common…COPIC markers.

Color Me Creative Challenge GroupMy CMC teammates are so nice and wait and see the beautiful projects they will be showing over there! The CMC challenge group is open to anyone so come on over and  join us for the current challenge that started on March 4 and will run until March 18! There is always a great prize for the winner!

Take a look at my very first project over CMC challenge Group! Gilli Jeans sporting a baby bump! The whole idea about this card was so funny! I think this idea was one of the fastest I ever had to make a card! As soon as I saw the challenge  inspiration picture the whole thing popped into my mind LOL…TG..because I was sharing with my friends Stephanie and Wini (DTs from House of Gilli Challenge and also SSCC) that I had to cut a little on how long I make my cards LOL….I literally had an Eureka moment! LOL (Let me enjoy they don’t come often LOL)…Why not make  Gilli Jeans wearing a nice maternity outfit! This card is a great example what I have been sharing with you…Gilli can be whatever you want..just grab you copics a little embellishment and your idea will come true! Any occasion!
I challenged my self while coloring this image. I wanted to create a lot of contrast at the hair part. I tried to achieve my goal by enhancing the highlights and also making sure the folded parts of the hair were plenty darker so I could give an illusion of the wavy look that her hair style calls for. Well not bad..don’t you think? Well, I kind liked the results…I don’t care much for perfect..why would I…since the whole process is already a load of fun!?! LOL….Hey what are you waiting for? Take a peak at the inspiration pic, grab you stamps and your copics and hop over CMC challenge group! We will be waiting for your project! See Ya!
