Riley New Release Day 3

I’m back with another project featuring the stamps of the Riley & Company August 2017 release.  This release has a great selection of fall, Halloween and Christmas sentiments and clear sets.

This week’s specials include free US Domestic shipping on orders over $25 and a bundle package with the three new Dress Up Riley sets, matching dies, a bonus t-shirt die and free shipping, for the low, low price of $88.50.

I had fun with this next project! I took the Retro Folk image, Marty and Mary and got them all ready for the holiday season with the new Dress Up Riley Christmas Outfits clear set. The sentiment is also from this New Release, Drink Up Grinches!

Now, who on your Christmas list wouldn’t want this card??

Check out the inspiration from my fellow Design Team members on the Riley & Company blog all week. And, I’ll be back here on my blog two more times this week with some last project inspiration for you….three words…Corner. Goo. Die.

This week’s specials include free US Domestic shipping on orders over $25 and a bundle package with the three new Dress Up Riley sets, matching dies, a bonus t-shirt die and free shipping, for the low, low price of $88.50.

This sentiment is one of my new favorites! It’s called If the Shoe Fits (Halloween). I have paired it with the Single Shoe stamp. I’ve also given it some sass and class with some bright red stickles on the hat and shoes. Lovely!

Mail Art with Prickley Pear

Hello Everyone! It’s a happy theme Tuesday over at the Prickley Pear blog. Today’s theme was suggested by the talented Irit Shalom of the Design Team. She suggested we make Mail Art.

What is Mail Art, you ask? Well, duh….just kidding, I  had to google it. Basically, it’s art for your mailbox. Envelopes decorated and ready to send. And let me tell you, they are a lot of fun to make!

This was my first attempt on an A2 envelope. I cut out the Flourish Oval Nesting Die on a post it and stuck it to the front of my card. This left a nice space for the mailing address. Then I took my Petunia stamp and stamped it around the edge of the frame. Next step was to color it up, which I did with regular pencil crayons. Once that was done, I took a black journaling marker and traced around the edge of my post it, then removed the post it from the envelope. Finally, I decided it needed a bit of color, so I sponged distress ink to the envelope.

This was attempted number two, which is my favorite!

Here, I started by stamping the Bicycle onto the envelope. Then I again masked off my address space.

The florals are from the Hibiscus 2 clear set, though I also used the darling three daisy stamp from the Scalloped Circle and Oval 4 – Floral set.  I didn’t want this one to have quite as much color as my first attempt, so I chose to just add select color to the images. The sentiment also comes from the Scalloped Circle and Oval 4 – Floral set.


Mail art is fun and easy to do! Give it a try yourself and see how addicting it can be. Need a few more ideas? Visit the Prickley Pear blog to see what the other Design Team members came up with.

Creating with Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps!

Hello Everyone! If you were over on the Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps blog on Tuesday, you’d have read our “Round, Round” feature. This week, we were creating with all things round, whether it be wheels, shapes, die cuts, etc.

Today I share with you the card I prepared, which was a round shaped card.
