A rainbow of colors

Elements heart_forever yours~
B icon winter
ring on the color! For the past couple weeks we have been challenge to make a few projects inspired by rainbows. Gosh I know how a rainbow  happens…it’s all physics. But honestly a rainbow still amazes me. Don’t get scared seeing me with my jaw dropped or smiling like a fool when I see a nice rainbow. I am glad even with tiny little ones that happens by accident when a garden hose happens to make the right spritz… That is me, a color fool! Proudly. lol

Today I am sharing with you’re a CAS (clean and simple) project. Sometimes lean and simple is a huge challenge for me. I got used to adding patterns and mixing things together.  I absolutely liked this challenge. I will try again very soon lol. CAS here I come!
My card was created by using Gilli element heart stamp (first series). I stamped my image and then colored with copic markers. After I was done coloring I added a coat of glossy accents to each heart to make it shiny (okay that starts not sounding so simple..bare with me lol) and give a little more dimension. I let the gloss dry and bordered the hearts with a thin coat of stickles (yeah, you knew I would not pass the bling…lol). Elements heart_forever yours
The embossing background was made using a Sizzix folder (luv how deep they emboss). The lace detail is a punch by Martha. Oh I almost forgot..the ribbon….colored with copics! I told you I was a coloring fool! LOL
I guess that is how my sentiment came about (made using copic multiliners)…forever yours….all the colors of the rainbow!
Please join us for a colorful challenge over TTCDR challenge (you have a couple days left) for a CAS challenge!
See you around soon with a new project!

oday we are going Irish! Hey,everyone is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day! Right? LOL. It is quite fun preparing a green card! So many cute traditions on St. Patrick’s…like those sweet potatoes candy. Humm. They are yummy..and I don’t even care for Cinnamon (I know I just offended more then 1/2 of the population..but the spice makes me choke – so I do have an excuse : ) ). Oh, the Soda bread….even that Silly Green Milkshake from McDonald's. I have a very dear friend that green milkshake is her St. Patrick tradition ; ). Cheers! Every time I see that shake pops she comes to mind!

Please someone tell me what “ Erin-go-Bragh” means? I heard some explanations but I am still puzzled LOL. It sounds so funny.
As you can see I did have a good time making this card. Since I found this little sentiment from Studion G…right away  I knew what Gilli  I would use! Sassy Parisian Gilli! I colored Gilli with Copic markers and created a little stripped pattern on her tee using my copic multiliner (I cannot go without it - if you cannot find them locally check out oozak.com, Rusty got them all and all the trimmings). For a more fun and party like look, I added a little ruffle lace to Gilli’s skirt! Of course I had to add bling ; ). How about those shoes..yeah she is very in with her glitter pumps…Gilli’s Lebuttin LOL (matching the hat too! Winking smile).

The base and the clovers were created using the Silhouette cutter. That Celtic knot is super cute!. A cute little lace makes a frame for the base. The trellis is also from the Silhouette library.DP papers are from MME and Crate Paper. Little embellish stamps, from Studio G.
If you are feeling lucky this week join us over The Greeting Card challenge over The Outlawz! If you are feelin’ really really lucky (or just wanna have fun) come over To House of Gilli, the house is going green this week!!
Super hug!

Thanks Jojo. Jojo was kind enough to educate me!! Here is what Jojo explained to me about the sentiment I used on my card : ) 
"Erin go bragh is a way to express allegiance to Ireland. They say it means Ireland Forever"

Lather and Vellum paper By anaRy

S icon winter

ay…hello there!

craving flower sights? I am. love the rainbow of colors that pops up every week when spring comes.

Today I am sharing with you a project I made using the luxurious papers from Paper Temptress.  I had this idea in mind to make a very delicate card,  but you know me, I like texture. So I run into my special folder where I keep my PT special papers and ta-da!

My best wishes card is made with Leather papers. The leather paper has just enough texture to give a very nice feel and beautiful looks to a project. To add a little extra touch I added distressing ink to the border of the paper…and this effect worked better then I expected thanks to the paper. The little leather “wrinkles”, sorry I cannot find other way to describe lol, allow the ink to go deeper into the paper adding such a rich feel to it. I was pleased. : ). My next step was creating the tiny flowers. I used a SU punch to create these little ones, but there is a catch, I used vellum. Peach velvet stripped vellum to be precise, reallyLather and Vellum f paper By anaRy cute paper. At PT you will find amazing quality vellum. Don’t try this using flimsy stuff or you will get frustrated lol. So go to Patricia she has what you need..and more LOL. Winking smile

The beautiful swirls are dies from memory box, and the cute sentiment cut a SU punch. I use copic multiliner to write the sentiment. 

Please come visit the Paper Temptress community. You will be delighted with the variety of projects the DT showcase over there. Mojo gone? Come over for some neat ideas!

Thanks for dropping by!



Party Nana !

Senior by anaRy

D icon winter

delightfully funny! That is how I describe these humorous seniors images from Delia’s from “I brake for Stamps”. They crack me up. I hope someday I will be full of energy just like Champagne Pearl here. LOL What a party gal! I bet she is the terror of the senior’s center LOL.

Pearl was colored with copic markers. I used the BV family for this card…and yikkkes..gosh..Oh lordy…this is one of the groups that I have to be very cautions. I went with it anyway. I had to color her in purples…a fashionable senior do keep things matching. I personally love when I see the white hairs with that cute “purplish” (yeah I know..not a word lol) tone to it LOL.

I also used liquid pearls to give a 3d impression of Pearl’s pearls ( Senior~ by anaRysorry I couldn’t resist lol). Since we are talking about a party dress here…yeah “babay” (with “a”) stikles on those lacy details on Pearl’s party dress.

If you are a fan of bright colors join us at Color me creative challenge this week…all mediums are welcome! Yeap prismas, copics, promarkers, etc! spread the word and join us for the fun…for a chat and you can even win a treat!

See you around soon!

An old time love

Gilli Victorian_Jetaime ~

T icon winter

ime goes by so fast but love never gets old…

Sometimes when I get lucky to come across a nice antique store I always look around for old images. Victorian Valentines are among the cutest ones. I love the colors and swirls and frills of once upon a time. Although I don’t use much on my daily life. I keep the inspiration from old times near by.

Today I am sharing with you a project I made inspired by old times….and the papers. Oh my the papers…all from the Paper Gilli Victorian_JetaimeTemptress. Gilli Victorian was colored with my faithful copic markers. I am having so much fun experimenting with deep tones. I cannot wait to try more combos like that. I wanted colors that would give me a velvety and luxurious look. I am getting there…I think LOL. When I design Gilli, I always leave a lot of empty space on purpose so you can create patterns change the lines on her clothes and make your creations kick up a notch…your style. This time my idea was to create an illusion of a corset like top on Gilli. I also draw some tiny doodle flowers as embroidery on her puffy sleeves. After all we have to dress  you for a romantic date.

The papers I used are from Paper Temptress. Just take a look at the Peach velvet stripes. Yes the stripes on this paper feel like velvet..it is just so pGilli Victorian_Jetaime airetty. It is also a bit on the see though range (vellum), this can give you sooo much room for creativity. I dry embossed the paper with a cuttlebug folder. What is cool is that the loop cracked a bit exactly in a way that I could use as a “Frame hold” for Gilli. To enhance the swirls I added a super fine line of stickles over it.  Now I was veryEmbossing_PaperBagPTpaper very excited how beautiful my embossing came out on the Eggplant brown bag paper. This paper is two sided..one brown and the other is eggpplantish color (did I just write that?lol)…I just love it.. It is such a cleaver color. You guys have to visit the store and check the papers. Forget DP for a second check this papers out…it will sure make you cards super chic.

Thank you for coming by and sharing some crafting love!

See you soon with another project
