Riley Sneak Peeks! Day 1

Oh boy, oh boy. Get your wallets ready, Riley & Company has a new release coming!

The official release day is this Thursday September 25th, 2014 and, as usual, we’re giving a big welcome to these 49 new Funny Bones family members with a blog hop. The hop starts at 8pm MST and you could win a $20 Gift Certificate to the Riley & Co online store just by stopping by and admiring our work. Oh, and maybe leaving a few comments.

In the meantime, we’re got FOUR days of sneaky peeky’s for you.

What have I got for you today? This fun new sentiment has been paired with Tourist Riley. I’ve made him into a suave and cool FBI agent. Wonder what’s in his briefcase?

Don’t forget to check out all the Riley & Company Design Team’s blogs for more sneak peeks everyday!

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!

Riley & Company – Sketch Challenge

Welcome to another challenge with Riley & Company!

Whose you’re terrific host this week? I am! What’s our terrific challenge? A sketch!

Here’s our sketch for the week:

And here’s my creation. Can you believe I messed up my own sketch?!? I put the two boxes down before I placed the circle. Duh!

I used a Funny Bones sentiment on this one. You can find it in the store with many, many other fabulous sentiments. This one is appropriately called “Askhole”.

Riley & Company – One Layer Card

Boy, oh, boy! Does Vera ever have a challenge for you this week over at the Riley & Company blog!

Her chosen challenge for the week is One Layer Card. If you’re like me, this one will be a real thinker…but I’m sure you’ll be proud of yourself for tackling it.

It appears these one layer and CAS challenge are getting easier for me, because this one wasn’t quite as difficult as I initially thought (which means you can do it too!).

I used my brayer to make the colored block on the cardstock, then stamped the shoe image. Then I used a darker color to stamp the Funny Bones sentiment, Losing Your Shoe, on top. Finally, added a couple of lines and a few rhinestones and there you go!

Unidentified Image Swap August 2014

It’s another round of my Unidentified Image Swap. Whose our host this month? It’s none other than ME! I chose a Whipper Snapper image to send to everyone.

And here is my fine creation!

Riley & Company – Get Sporty

Kendra is our host for the Riley & Company challenge this week and she’s chosen Outdoor/Summer Sports as our theme for this week.

This is a great challenge theme! There are so many fabulous Riley & Company images that you can use for this challenge. Which one will you choose?

Fishing Riley was the winner for my Outdoor Sports card. This image is perfect for creating masculine birthday or Father’s Day cards.

This card used MFT sketch MFTWSC9.

Sweet Sketch Wednesday #22

Can you believe I got around to another challenge this week? As mentioned in my last post, I have been working on some cards for a swap and decided to use a few sketch challenges in my creations. Of course, I made this shortly after the sketch was posted and then BARELY squeaked it into the challenge with 2 hours left…WHOOPS!

This card uses another Mo Manning image called Cupcake Thief, as well as the sentiment that comes with the stamp. I used Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2,#22 for this card. Love how this turned out!
