Riley & Company – Fall Colors

Welcome back to another week of Riley & Company challenges!

Monica is host of our challenge this week and her challenge to you is to make a card using Fall Colors.

I love fall shades and colors in my cards! I happily dug into my scrap pile to find the perfect pieces of paper and came up with these beauties! Orange, yellow, green and brown…reminds me of the river valley as it changes in the Fall.

This card uses a Retro Folk image, Midge Winking, and a Funny Bones sentiment appropriately called Mosquito.

Want to play along with us? Then all you have to do is make a project with a Riley & Company image and then head over to the Riley & Company blog to link up your card/project so that we can see what you created. No blog? No problem! Just use the keyword RILEY2014 when uploading your card to a public gallery (such as Splitcoast Stampers).  We can’t wait to see what you create!

Don’t forget to check out the rest of the Riley & Company Design Team’s blogs to see what fabulous creation they made for this challenge:

This card used MFT Sketch MFTWSC64.

Riley & Company New Release Blog Hop

Hello everyone! If you’ve been reading my blog this week, you’ll know that today is the New Release Blog Hop for 49 new Funny Bones sentiments from Riley & Company.

You’ve seen a number of the new stamps already, but you can hop your way through the 11 designers of the Riley & Company Design Team and see many more new stamps tonight. Plus, you can head over to the Riley & Company store to check out the Blog Hop specials and see all the stamps now available.

You should start the hop at the Riley & Company blog. While you’re there, make sure you leave a comment because one lucky commenter will win a $20 Gift Certificate to the Riley & Company online store.

If you hopped through in order, you’re visiting my blog from Vera’s wonderful blog.

Tonight, I’ve got two projects to share with you. The first one is a new sentiment that made me laugh and I paired it with two Retro Folk images previously available in the Riley & Company store. This sentiment is one stamp, but I’ve split it when stamping and used half on the outside of the card and half on the inside.

Well, Wondering Midge. That’s a great question! And you’re alter appearance, Pointing Midge has the answer for us…

I’m half hoping I get pulled over by some nice officer, just so I can give them this card.

And my second project of the night is this cute purse card, which I made into a gift card holder.

And on the inside I’ve used the new PMS sentiment stamp, plus Shoe Shopping Sophie. (You’ll have to excuse the Shoppers Optimum card in my holder. I didn’t have a shoe store gift certificate to model my holder).

Okay, from here you’re headed over to Stephanie’s blog.

Hop on, Riley Fan!

I’ve got another holiday sentiment for you today. This is one of my favorites from this new release. It really cracks me up! Here is the outside of the card I made:

And the other half of the sentiment is on the inside of the card:

It occurred to me as I posted this that this sentiment could be used for Thanksgiving or Christmas. If your wondering which Riley image that is, it’s Couch Riley and is available in the Riley & Company store.

Riley & Company – Off the Edge

Riley & Company is back with another fabulous challenge!

Kelly is our host this week and she’s called her fun challenge “Off the Edge!”. Your instructions? Make a card with an image or sentiment extending off the border of your A2 card.

And here’s my card!…….

Wait. Where’d my card go??? Oh yes, now I remember. I didn’t do it. <hangs head> It’s been busy around here, including a cold running through our house. I tried to find the time and energy to craft and it just didn’t work.

But that doesn’t mean you can’t play along!  Show me you’re better time management skills and make a project with a Riley & Company image and then head over to the Riley & Company blog to link up your card/project so that we can see what you created. No blog? No problem! Just use the keyword RILEY1914 when uploading your card to a public gallery (such as Splitcoast Stampers).  We can’t wait to see what you create!
