Riley Tuesday

I hope you enjoyed the new release of Riley and Company stamps last week, but we still have lots more to show you!  The Riley stamps are fun to use with the Funny Bone sayings.  Because Riley is always the perfect size...not too big and not too small, he's fun to use on cards that have some moving parts to them!!
 For this wedding card, I used the Sizzix frame to create an arch to the card and put the Riley couple on the inside. The background uses the Taylored Expressions brick embossing folder on cream paper and the flowers and leaves are dies from Cheery Lynn Designs. Then I added the sentiment on top.  However, it was a little too big...no problem!! Stamp part for the front and add the rest on the inside!!
This second card uses the Scuba Riley.  My oldest son got his Diving Certification and I thought this would be a fun card for him.  I used the Slide On Over die from Lawn Fawn and after I cut out Riley, I put him on a slider tab.  I made a frame and embossed it with the Weathered embossing folder from Taylor Expressions and put acetate behind it to make a window.  At the top I used a water die to show water.  Then on the inside and outside the frame I used the Tree 2 die from Prickley Pear to make coral.  Finally, I added the sentiment across the top.  This scuba guy will pull up behind the sentiment the appear as the tab is pushed down.  Hope you enjoyed the cards and be sure to check out the Riley blog for more card ideas from the talented Design Team today!!

A Poem for mornings

Welcome to the final day of the New Release stamps from Riley & Company!  We hope you enjoyed all the new images and sentiments. But we aren't finished yet...
Grab a cup of coffe, sit back and enjoy!
 I think this sentiment is perfect for those of us that need to have a cup of Joe to get us on the right track to begin our day.  I used the top part of the sentiment for the card topper, then used the rest of the sentiment...the "poem" as a tag that fits behind the image of Coffee Riley.

So while you are still enjoying your morning cup of coffee, stop on over to the Riley blog and see more inspiration there!

Stacked Trees

I hope you have enjoyed our New Release week of Prickley Pear.  Today I am featuring the Three Piece  Trees.  There are three tree designs in the set.  These can be colored in different shades of green and blue, depending on your mood!  Pair these with the Christmas Banner Set to add some extra embellishments.  This Banner set also has great sentiments for all your Christmas cards! Both clear sets come with matching dies!
What about a Blue Spruce for a Blue Christmas?  It's fun to make a Non-traditional card sometimes too! Add a bow on the tree and presents under the tree...Oh what fun to mix and match!!
See more fantastic Christmas ideas on the PPRS blog today!  Don't forget you can still get free shipping if you order online.  Stamp will be in the store this weekend!

Celebrating a Birthday!!

Here's to another day of Celebrating the Riley and Company's new release!  Also, today is my Dad's birthday so...let's show you how the new Funny Bones sayings can lighten the Special day!
 This Popping out of the cake Riley seemed perfect for this cake sentiment.  Even though these are one stamp, I like to separate the sentiments and often put the punchline inside the card.
The Balloons Riley is my go to image with many of these Birthday Sayings.  Check out more of these Hilarious sayings at Riley & Company today.  They are guaranteed to light your mood and even bring a chuckle or two!  Check out more great ideas on the blog too.

Coffee Time

I love this stamp from Prickley Pear!

This Coffee Cup was released this week along with the Tea Cup...so whatever you prefer as your beverage of choice...you can use!  I love the versatility of these stamps. Thye are a silhouette so you can stamp and emboss as a solid image and make your own background with Color Burst, Distress Inks, or whatever medium you choose.  Then just add a sentiment and some embellishments to finish it off. With the Coffee Cup, I stamped the image with Toffee Crunch Moment ink and then colored over the ink with Copic Markers.  This creates painted look!
 Have fun with these images and play around with them to see what creative ideas you come up with!  Again, don't forget to hop over to the PPRS blog for more incredible ideas from the design team!!

Simply Hilarious

These new stamps are sure to tickle your Funny Bones!! Pair these sentiments to these adorable Riley images and you have a winner!  These Nurse Sophie seemed perfect for the Laughter is the best Medicine sentiment.  I used some die cut letter to make a prescription pad as the background.
 The Lessons Learned sentiment is great for this little Floating Riley. I just added a few decorative papers to the background and sponged the sentiment panel...finally, I added Riley to the card.  
Remember to join us everyday this week to see what else the design team has cooked up for your amusement on the blog!  Tell us what is your favorite saying...we would love to hear!

Here is the Polka Dot house 2.  I used some bright Copic Markers to add to the light mood these stamps inspire!  Just add a few decorative elements and a sentiment...and the card is complete!
This next card uses the Mushroom Lane Apartment stamp.  I used a scrap paper for the circle scallop opening to frame the building.  The sentiment was from using part of the new Friends Value You sentiment from the Funny Bones collection.
