Flourished Wishes

Best Wishes_PopColorBanana~
Hello my lovely friends. How wonderful is to be breathing the spring fresh air….and sneeze with the pollen lol. Yeah allergies get me too but honestly I love spring anyway…flowers sneaking in about everywhere. Of course the colors have a super influence on me as you can see on my new project.
You can see the spring influence of on my choice of colors.Best Wishes_PopColorBanana f Yellow! Super happy color with a perfect vibe to wish Best Wishes don’tcha think? Winking smile.
If you are into Su cardstock, you must check out PaperTemptress Pop Tones (she has two different paper weights). I am using a super cute yellow called Banana Split (kinda feel like having one right about now lol), These papers embossed beautifully without tearing. I just really liked this yellow shade…and I am already making plans to use in combination with some DP paper I got.
For this project I used three different embossing from Sizzix, Cuttlebug and SU, I made a commitment to myself and use my embossing folders a little more in my creations. Even though I wantedBest Wishes_PopColorBanana to use lots of yellow on my project…I could not resist adding this super pretty Blue ribbon also from Paper Temptress. I think it really wrap the good wish…right? Then bouquet of flowers are a combo of prima and recollection flowers. I kind of dyed the center flower with distress inks for a little pop. The swirls are Memorybox dies with a nice coat of glamour dust…you really didn’t think I was going to pass the bling…lol. Die cuts by silhouette and punched edge by Martha Stewart (all dusted with Glamour).
Well I hope you got a positive vibe from this little project. Please if you have a little time come visit the Paper Temptress community blog…lots of spring inspiration for you.
See you soon with a new project. Oh don’t forget I have CANDY here for you!

Gilli lollipop_happy birthday~
Hi icon ArcheoButerflies
ellooooo everybody!!! here! Thank you so much for coming by and celebrate CMC 2nd Bday! As a senior DT I am so honored and happy to help my lovely friend Suzanne with this celebration! At CMC I have made so many friends and have learned so much! What a great place to come and have some pure fun!
You just came from Steph’s blog right? Let me guess…you were blown away with her talent right? I knew it! The CMC DTs gals are such a great bunch!
Now it is my turn to share my birthday project!  I went girly all the way! LOL. Using pinks and a touch of coral to give the project fresh look : ). A girl got to try right? LOL. I used Gilli Lollipop for this project. As you will notice there is a tiny difference…Gilli lost her lollipops and got balloons! Well a bday party has to haveGilli lollipop_happy birthday some balloons, agreed? hehe.
My image (gilli rubber stamp) was colored with copic markers. To create the polka dot pattern I used white pen over the colored image.
I created the balloons by using my copic multiliners. The ballons were  colored with  copic markers and then added a heavy coat of glossy accents over it. I cut around the balloons and added the cords to create the dimensional effect. All the paper edges were distressed with Distress inks. I added a touch of stickles at the edges of the punched pieces (Martha punches). The sentiment piece and the cute vintage base for Gilli are cuts from Silhouette library (luuuuvv this tool). Papers by lilly Bee designs.
I hope you enjoyed my little Birthday project! Now it is time for you to head off to my buddy Tina….get ready to have your eyes Gilli lollipop_happy birthday apop! Tina is super creative! I am sure you will be super inspired!!!
Oh before I forget…look at the previous post …I am throwing a CANDY! Check it out!

Got Shamrocks?

Lil Gilli Jeans_St Patrick~

D icon winter

o you? LOL A little joke with my lil’ project for St. Patrick’s day. When I say little, I mean little! This card is tiny tiny measuring only 3x3” Smile. These mini cards are a quick to make and perfect for those moments you are in a pinch and have no time for a very elaborate work, but still want something nice to gift. As you can see Lil’ Gillis are fab fab for this type of project. Yes! You do have room to color and add details just like your regular size Gilli! (if you would like to order shoot me an email anary@anary.com)

Lil Gilli Jeans_St Patrick

To color this mini treasure, Lil’ Gilli Jeans I used copic markers. I also used my copic multiliners to add some detail to my coloring.

The cute sentiments are from studio G. I inked the clear stamps with memento inks in various tones of green. I am a nut about memento inks.

I didn’t want to leave my edges naked so I pulled my Shabby Lil Gilli Jeans_St Patrick ashutter’s green pad (Distress Inks). I am trying to make more use of my distress inks…they were a little lonely in the corner of my room lol. My tiny pearls, including the tiny tiny pearl earrings on Lil’ Gilli Jeans. DPs are from recollection and Authentique papers.

I hope you will get lucky and be able to create this week! If so, join us over the “Anything Goes” challenge over The Greeting Card Challenge over The Outlawz group! Prizes are sweet!!

Super hugs!



The magic of spring


D icon winter

reaming of spring! Well, the colors actually started to pop up. I have seen some crocus and even some daring daffodils showing up! Spring here it comes, or so it seems like. LOL. I love winter but the layers get me a little bit hehe. I just cannot wait to see my beloved tulips and some neat butterflies.

Since I am longing for my favorite spring things I decide to bring them all together in one project. Butterflies, flowers and colors! I prepared this project for The paper Temptress Community Blog. The community blog is a must stop. So many cute projects from all kinds of genres.

It’s no secret my ,eh eh, admiration (more like a craze) for papers. RainbowButtefliesSo I picked two super nice papers from The Paper Temptress to create my project.

Vellum Mother of pearl and Lustre Paper (Laser Silver Lustre) . I just loved how I was able to emboss the vellum. The pearlescent effect that this paper have is just delightful and gives a cool touch on the project. Since the vellum is a bit on the translucent side I though it would be interesting to continue with the theme and add the lustre paper. The stripes are very elegant and gave me the opportunity to “frame” the embossed part of the project.

The rainbow line of butterflies was created by using cuts of Martha Stewart punches colored with copics. I wanted the RainbowButteflies abutterflies to have a 3 d effect on this card as they were flying over the flower field. So I added glossy accents (helped with giving shape) and a touch of stickles….well butterflies are magic in my perspective..at least on this project. Lol. I just luv the effect. The lace bottom border is a Martha wide punch with a coat of glamour dust ( yeah yeah I like sparkle lol). My final touch was add a sentiment (I made a vellum tag) over a pretty sheer ribbon (also from Paper Temptress).

I hope you enjoyed this little project Smile. My goal always is bring a little something to make my friends smile.

See you soon with a new Project!




Dream on!

 Gilli Fairy2_Dream On~

D icon winter

ream on! Dream on! That is my wish for all of you! I hope this upcoming weekend you will have a little time to do something for yourself or someone you love! Never forget your passions! Passion  keeps life fun!

Working with crafts is part of my passion…I truly enjoy coloring, spraying glitter all over…lol. Oh yeah, if you come to visit…people will think you just might had gone to some kind of carnival LOL. I say in the other hand, you got a little fairy dust on ; ) .

Talking about fairies..I would love to share with you a project that I prepared a while ago. My Gilli Fairy card! For this project I colored Gilli Fairy 2. If you like to create pleats and color them, this is a good image. Not only for pleats but all kinds of other techs. Gilli Fairy2_Dream On

The beautiful swirls used in this project are from Memory box dies (for the fans out there Oozak.com will be carrying them – when I saw the Memo box wall at Rusty’s my jaw dropped LOL).

I wanted to give a romantic dreamy feel to this card, so I distressed all the paper edges with Distress Inks. All the cute lace paper edges are cut from Martha Stewart punches. These punches have such a classic Gilli Fairy2_Dream On aifeel to it…doesn’t it?

Now let’s talk about paper…oh dear. LOL These cuties are My Minds Eyes and Glitz paper pads (oozak). Cardstock are from Mike’s.

So how about you? Ready to put a piece on your dream on paper?

So let’s go! Grab all those pretty papers you got and let’s move!

Making pretty and dreamy one project at time! You will bring a smile on someone’s face!

Super hugs and see you super soon with a new project!
