I prepared this little project inspired by the magical aura that people seems to get this time of the year. Touch back with innocence past that once again resurface : ). No matter what you celebrate..you play the dreidel, you décor the tree..you feast in abundance for Kwanzaa…it is time to gather and enjoy love in its essence. Wishing that this feel could last every single day..in moments that life challenge us.

For this project I used a Gilli Fairy rubber stamp colored with copic markers and decorated with dies from Silhouette cameo. The little ornaments I made by hand..just any round cut will do it..you just have to embellish your way. : ). Papers from Authentique..one of my favorite lines of paper (you can find  at Oozak). Lots and lots of glittah! Hey it is the season (but if you follow me..glitah is a whole year season for me LOL).

well I will keep this post short but soon a new one to rise LOL. For now enjoy your real gifts…blessings and hugs!

If you have  a little time on hands don’t forget to drop by The outlawz! Greeting card challenge is rolling and it always fun fun!

H- Hi  Icon Fallellooooooo! Thank you for coming by! I bet you are having  load of fun already at the CMC bash party! So how many people have you visited yet? Now the cool part is there is a lot more to go! Have you seen the CRAZY good prizes? Also a ton of inspiration and fun!

Wasn't Karen's project divine? Yeap my fellows DTs have their way with markers..Don't you think? LOL

So here is my contribution to the party...I know we are still a little away from it, but honestly days are going by so fast that maybe this project is not so far aheadGili Lady HNY 13 of schedule! Since we are on a party mode..how about go into a NEW YEAR'S groove! AHA!

In my book all that sparkle and glitter suggest party time...Gilli is dressed for the occasion. Doesn't she look like a "Dream girl"? LOL. Yup her metallic plus sparkly sequins dress was all colored with copics. Nothing like metallic sheen and sequins to makes you have 'Supreme" glam!

Also who doesn’t want to start a brand new year wishing upon a gold star? I do! The little golden stars (Cut with Silhouette cameo btw) were colored with copic..Markers are my best buddies! LOL. If you would like to learn quite a few Gili Lady HNY 13 dettricks about coloring you definitely should take a look at Color me creative classes. You can study on your own time and there is a whole network to help you out all the way through your journey…not forgetting the fun biweekly challenges!

Back to the layout..I used four different embossing folders to create all the textures in the card. The circles and ovals were cut using Spellbinders and the bubbles and numbers were die cuts made with the Silhouette Cameo. Toss in a super cute Sea foam glitter and voilah! The show can get started...Shall we start the countdown? LOL

I hope you enjoyed this little project! I will see you soon...in 2013! LOL I told you it is around the corner! LOL 10..9..8..7..

Season Greetings

Gilli Fairy 2 Candy Fairy~
H- Hi  Icon Fall
ey you all! Long time no see! Smile I had to take a tiny break, some changes happening and one of them involve packing my studio. Do I hear a “WHOA!? Yeap..you trully know what I mean...just take one quick look around you…how do you pack all your craft stuff? HEHHE. Well I am about to start that challenge…hang on…Did I tell you I like to crochet, knit, paint and cake decorate? But wait there is more….Sewing! I am not even telling you my craze with wrapping paper…yes, I go all the way when I hand a gift…full experience. So I am taking a deep breath…and getting started. If you notice some hic ups on my presence around…you know where I will be …under my embellishment pile probably!!! LOL
But now is holiday season time. I hope even though reality sucks sometimes, we can keep in mind the tons of blessing we receive every single moment. I will share with you what I do…I give myself 5 minutes of self pity evry day. That is all LOL. I can tell you I am booked HAHAHHA. The rest of the time I try to focus on positive things…here is a big example. Share my work with you! I always have a load of fun sharing ideas and learning from you my fellow crafters!
This new Gilli Project was inspired by the lights and cheer that this time of the year bringGilli Fairy 2 Candy Fairy us. For this project I used Gilli Fairy 2…she lost her wings as you can see, but make no mistake the magic is within Winking smile . I used copic markers to color the image…lots of blues and high contrasts. I added a little bling to the dress. It’s the holidays after all.
It has been a while I created and I missed all my knick knacks and tools. So I pulled my dies and my designer papers and went to town! At Oozak blog
challenge this month we have a different challenge! Anything goes with a twist…Red! So I picked my color choices..blues (one of my fav colors and sprinkle of reds). The little candy canes I created by using a wired ribbon that I found last year at Michaels. Since I wanted a heavy “winter wonderland feel” to this card without being too traditional I added glitter to the swirls and flourishes I used. Another way of adding a little holiday touch was by adding little berries around the layout (I used liquid pearls and stickles for that).
Gilli Fairy 2 Candy Fairy aTalking about layout, this one was inspired by the Greeting Card challenge over The Outlawz…It’s an eye sideways. A little cherry winky hehe. The theme focusing on eyes inspired me to do a holiday make up to Gilli eyes too. I loved doing that (I can use some practice) and I see myself doing this more and more.
Well I hope you are having a lovely season and please give yourself sometime to enjoy what really matters…the people that we love…the friendships and every good thing that comes with it. Forgive and forget…reconnect and reach out. Rekindle…don’t hold back…magic does happen. Winking smile. Although twisting my nose seems not to be working when comes to get my studio packed HAHAHAHHAHA. See Ya!

 Ps: Don't forget to join us also at House of Gilli Challenge...easy one!!! See you there.
