Riley Class 2

Don't you think Riley is the most adorable moose ever??  Pair her up with these Funny Bone Sayings and you have the funniest cards!  Join us for the Riley class we are having at The Stamp Shoppe on Saturday, October 8th. Here are samples of two of the cards we will be making...
 This first card uses the Balloons Riley on a mini wobble that is popped up over the Funny Bones Birthday greeting.  Using the tree frame from Impression Obsession and the grassy border die from Cheery Lynn to finish it off!
This second card used Diet Riley on a flip card.  These flip cards are so easy when you use the Sizzix Flip-Its dies.  Then I used the Lawn Fawn stitched frame die to create a shaker card. with a peek-a-boo window that reveals the No Sprinkles saying inside.  Join us for this fun class!

Desk Calendars

Using the Mushroom Lane Stamps from Riley and Company, I created these Desk Calendars.  I thought they would be great for teacher gifts, or gift for someone when you would like to get them "a little something".  I used the Sizzix Stand-Ups dies to create the calendar stand.  Then I added papers and die elements to create the scene. After decorating the stand, I popped up the Mushroom House as the main image, then added the calendar to the base.
 Here, I added along with the cut out mushroom house, a cute little fox from Taylored Expressions.  Then for some extra dimension, I add some small dragonflies from Impression Obession.
 Finally, I used the same image to make a matching card to go with the little gift.
You can find more of these adorable Mushroom houses at Riley and Company.  They are fun to color with Copic Markers and have a cute, whimsical feel to these projects.  All products can be found at The Stamp Shoppe, in Weston, Wisconsin.  Come in and see us soon!

Here are a few cards to whet your appetite!

Tropical Riley

Today I am using two Riley Stamps that have a more tropical theme along with two new release funny bones stamps!
 Here I stamped the Be a Pineapple sentiment and cut it apart to place Carmen Miranda between them.  I used a scrap of paper that I cut a scallop circle out of.  Laying it over decorative paper, then adding a piece of pink cardstock make a background for Riley.  Then to finish it off with some pearls I made with the Viva Decor Pearl Pen.
Here is another funny saying that was just released this month!  This Hula Sophie was perfect with this sentiment!  I stamped her on white cardstock and mounted it onto some blue paper.  Then I placed a wobbles behind the image to create motion.  Just add some palm fronds from Cheery Lynn and die cut poinsettia flowers from Prickley Pear with some Candi and it completes the card. Be sure to check out the Riley blog for more fantastic cards!
