Glamour in B&W

Gilli Seating Bride_OldHollywoodB&W~
Hi icon ArcheoButerflies
ello everyone! Me again! I told ya we will be heating up things this week! Just check out the news about GILLI BDAY BASH at the end of this post! Did I hear fun and gift? LOL Read on!
So how are you all enjoying your weekend? I can for sure say I am doing one of my favorite things. Coloring! But coloring aside one of the things I love to to when I have the time, specially during cold weather months is to cozy up with a blankie and watch a nice old movie. I am not talking about 80’s stuff…I am talking about old Hollywood glam that is no longer in existence. Oh there is nothing like a fun Cary Grant movie…or a swing by Fred and Ginger!
My project for the CMC copic challenge was inspired by the Old Hollywood glamour. The classic movies that never goes out of style. Movies like “Now voyager” with Betty Davis (yes I named my cat after her lol), or “ Roman Holiday” with Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck…how about “Flying Down to Rio” with Ginger and Fred? Oh, who doesn’t want to dance like that!? I don’t know, but there is something about a black and white movie that just ooze class, romance and just plain fun…even when the plot is shmaltzy lol. I am am old movie fan…and to be honest as they say…”if you never seen the movie..the movie is not old!”
Gilli Seating Bride_OldHollywoodB&W
My idea was to bring all the sophistication and the style of the actresses from once upon a time Hollywood.
I colored Gilli Seating bride with shade of gray (all Cs). Her tiara…of yeah on those days not only princesses used tiaras…I colored with copics and added a little stickles to add a little sparkle. I added a few black pearls to Gilli dress using a Pearl Pen from Viva décor. oh I also add a little touch of black diamond to Gilli pump’s. The very enigmatic eyes were created by using copic multiliners and adding a little shade of gray…just like real make up!
The ornate frame was created by using a Silhouette die cut piece and adding an embossed backing. I created that cushion texture by tracing lines with my score pal! I added tiny pearls to the cross points…Oh you cannot beGilli Seating Bride_OldHollywoodB&Wart classy without pearls…did you see Gilli’s sweet pearl ring? Delightful ha? LOL. I should mention that I covered the die cut with a coat of Black Diamond Stickles and a coat of Glossy effects. I did the same thing with the elegant candelabra. My papers are Authentique (yeap once again..I told you I love this co) and embossed paper using a Spellbinder impressabilities with touches of distress ink. The single and dramatic (oh yeah we have drama too lol) red rose was dyed using copic.
So how about you? Do you like old movies? How about taking up this B&W (or sepia) tones with one punch of color challenge? Come on over CMC copic challenge and join us. The DT has created some beautiful cards…come take a peak! I am sure you will bring a beautiful project! Sweet gift for the winner!
Huge hug!

Happy Halloween!

Hi icon ArcheoButerflies
ey all! Holly molly just the other day I was winning about the weather…and here I come again! Who put the outdoor AC at full blast? Are you kidding? Gosh it has been chiilllyyy these past few days lol. I was quick in pulling out my flannel pj’s pants out of my pile of winter clothes! Ah…cold weather my uniform ready to go! LOL
Talking about being ready…I think this is the first year I am ahead on making my cards for Halloween! LOL Ohhhh that is scary! lol. I would love to share with you another project for Halloween! A very fashionable mummy! lol. Gilli Parisian is trying it on a cool Halloween costume! She will be a super Booutiful mummy don’t you think?
Okay just just check out those delightful shoes! All right I will say..I would love to have those lol. I colored Gilli Parisian with copic markers. The mummy outfit was created by using copic multiliners. I just added a few lines through Gilli face, arms and legs : ) to give that bandage kind of look. I also transformed her little bonnet into a scary Jack-o-lantern hat LOL…To give Gilli’s skirt a little bit if flair I added a few free hand  lines on the bottom of Gilli skirt to obtain a “tulle” effect.  I know you could totally make a Gilli mummy too..just get your Gilli out and go for it!
GilliParisian_BootifulCU A girl’s bedroom cannot be without a huge mirror and some clothing items hanging around right? So I created the little hangers by using some bead wire I had in hand. The big mirror was made by using a Silhouete die cut shape (altered) and covering the center with aluminum foil. Since we are talking about a very cool gal…we had to add a nice mirror message for everyone! The happy Halloween was written using white pen. The little calendar I made using a few pieces of scrap paper and twine I had around : ). The little spider web is a piece cut from a Martha Stewart punch. Paper from Authentique ( I told I was smitten!) and embossed paper created using Cuttlebug folder.
So how about you jumping into a cool challenge? Join us over Through the Craftroom Door Challenge (it is open to everyone and it is free!)..you can win some really cool stuff! Did I mention a cool GC? Ahhhh yeah…hop over there!
See you all soon with another project!

The Good witch::Happy Halloween

Gilli Ballon_Oct31~

Hi icon ArcheoButerflies

ow are you all doing? I hope doing good! Kiddos are back in school, normal house routines in place…although I truly believe house cleaning should have an app..lol

Halloween still a but further down on the road but I am trying to be good and getting ahead (ahem!), yeah, right, one day lol. Honestly I had this idea in mind for a little while and I was dying to to try it out! Take a look at this Gilli Ballon transformation…isn’t this “good witch” costume a cutie? It was super easy to do that just grab you Gilli and your markers and ta dah! Gilli will fit whatever you have in mind!

For this projects I stamped Gilli Balloon and colored with copic markers. Her bone chain and skull belt was created using white pen…I Gilli Ballon_Oct31might make me one . I also added a cute little spider hair pin over her head..hey wiLaughing out loudtch outfit! I used copic multiliner to created the spider and I added a little stickles for dimension. The ghost balloon were created using copic markers and copic multiliners. The creepy background is an embossed piece using cuttlebug embossing folder, one of the oldie ones. I colored the details with copic markers and distressed parts of it with distress inks. The cute little circles were cut from a super cute cuttlebug embossing folder. I used the debossed side of the images and distress the edges and added a touch of stikles around it to give a little touch. Gilli Ballon_Oct31_artTo frame the card I picked a Martha Steward spider web punch and added balck diamond stickles to give more texture and of course sparkle Laughing out loud

The yummy paper is from Authentique (gosh I am smitten!) and bazzil. To top it off little twine bows  Smile.

So how about plucking you embossing folder out of that huge stash of craft things (yeah I know where you were last summer…at the craft store! HAHHAHA..I was there too lol) and join us over House of Gilli for Vivi’s embossing Challenge! You can win a Gilli gift!

See you soon….muahahahahah..



Gilli Shopper :: Inspired by a song

Gilli Stroll_Youvegotafriend~
Hi icon ArcheoButerflies
ello everybody! It is me! Finally! It seems that I am getting rid of the junk I got! Phew! It took 3 weeks and antibios to get over the stuff I got…I will say it is not funny gasp for air. But thank to big G I am feeling much better. I will have to say  that it was also a touch of friendship power! This past weekend I had the ultimate pleasure of meeting some of my online gal pals! I met the adorable and full of positive vibe, Colleen, the original OUTLAW! Yeah Colleen is the owner of the NING ‘The Outlawz” an amazing community of crafters that is super inspiring. Free! I have the pleasure of participating in one of their DTs…I will say…the community is fantastic!
Also in the house was lady Ann and Melanie, dear friends and partners in crime ( They are enablers!!). Thanks ladies for helping me with setting up the bday space! Talia you were not in class but thank you for giving me a super hand! So good to share time with the gals! Last but not least my BFF Suzanne J. Dean, or simply the copic mogul like I call her LOL. Suzanne and I had a lovely time together and she even was brave enough to keep me company while I finished up some goodies for the Gilli Bday party! Suzanne’s class was fantastic as always and the students from the Tristate were a talented bunch! You should have seen the progress they made in just one day!! Congrats ladies! I will say that I cannot wait to be with these ladies once again! I am certain the good vibe of spending time with my my girlfriends helped me to get rid of the bug! lol
Talking about Outlawz…the theme for the current Greeting Card challenge is “Inspired by a song”. Almost instantly a song came to mind “ You’ve got a friend”. For some reason the voices of James Taylor and Carole King comes with the packageGilli Stroll_Youvegotafriend…I guess it is the classic version. Thanks to mom and dad that introduced me to this lovely song. There is some power in saying to someone…”all you’ve have to do is call…and I will be there..”. Soo good to be able to be there for someone.
I picked Gilli shopper (launched at CHA Summer) for my project and my sentiment says “ Friendship like ours grows like flowers”. Gilli was colored with copic markers. The sentiment was written using copic multiliner on Spellbinder nestability…I added a Gilli Stroll_Youvegotafriend_artlittle color to the edge also using copic markers. Leaves vine punch is from Martha Stewart (MS) collection. The cute butterfly is also a MS punch. All ribbons from Mikes. Kraft papper is recollection and I think my paper is MME (need to double check). The paper edge was distressed using distress inks. All that blings is stickles!
I hope you liked my little project! Hopefully you can join us over The Outlawz Greeting Card Challenge…pick a song and let’s have some fun!
I will share some fun pics of the weekend with yall soon….some are already floating around…
See you super soon with another project! Huggies!




Magical Wishes to you

Gilli Fairy2_MagicalWishes_front

Hi icon ArcheoButerflies

ello guys and gals! How is everyone doing? I hope you are all well and creating beautiful things! I am trying to keep my mind busy while sailing through my mega dose of antibios. Thank G for antibios…it can treat hard heads like me very easily! Just like magic!

Talking about magic here I come with a brand new Gilli Project for you. A card sending good wishes to all of you! Gilli Fairy 2 was colored with copic markers.  Gilli is seating on a streGilli Fairy2_MagicalWishes_easelam of cute butterflies (Martha Stewart Punch). The butterflies were distressed using Distress inks and detailed with Stickles.  The cute little lace border was made using Martha Stewart punch. The flowers are prima and skittles are generic. Drops are from Recollections. The lovely tiny pearls are madeGilli Fairy2_MagicalWishes using liquid pearls. Don’t laugh but one more time I forgot what paper I used but I will be sitting soon to check on my pads were this one came from…It is a lovely hue of creams and golds. The sentiment tag was made using Ek punch.

I made this project for the current challenge over House of Gilli Blog! Easel plus flowers! Come on over we have a link for you to try this card style! Let’s try something new!

See you soon!!

Don’t forget to join us in a CELEBRATION!
