Riley & Company More New Release!

It’s the last day of the Design Team Inspiration week with Riley and Company Design Team. If you haven’t been here yet this week, here’s what you missed: 42 Funny Bones stamps, 11 Inspirations stamps and 4 brand new images with a cat named Burt….All. Available. Now.

Like right now.

What do I have for you today? There’s a few new Christmas sentiments in the mix and here is one of them, “If Kisses were Snowflakes”. Isn’t this a cute sentiment??? Love it.

And, sometimes when we have a new release what starts out as an okay sentiment turns into a terrific “I JUST LOVE THAT” moment. I love those moments. One of the 11 new Inspirations stamps caught my eye and went running for my Yellow Brick Road Riley to pair it up. Doesn’t this sentiment fit PERFECTLY with the theme of this book?

Last day of our Inspiration Week, but I’m certainly not the last of the fun. There are seven other terrific Design Team members waiting for you to wonder by and check out their projects.

Thanks for visiting me this week! Happy shopping!

The Perfect Halloween from Riley & Company

The Riley and Company Design Team are celebrating another new stamp release! This month, 42 Funny Bones stamps, 11 Inspirations stamps and 4 brand new images with a new character are introduced.

Today my inspiration post theme is Halloween. There are a number of fantastic new Halloween themed sentiments in this release, plus some great Halloween images such as the ones featuring Burt that I showed you yesterday.

I love this sentiment, “You Say Witch”. And, it would make a great friendship card anytime of the year, right?

Also a great sentiment is this “I’m To Sexy for My Boom”. Wouldn’t this sentiment pair nicely with “You Say Witch”? This time, I paired it with the Riley titled “Witch on Broom”, but the Riley & Company store has many great Riley images that would pair nicely with this one.

And, last card of today is an old sentiment, but new image that is perfect for Halloween. I realized after I was posting this that I”m not sure if this is a Halloween card or not? Or, you can make it a birthday card too, right?

This is day 4 of our new release inspiration week, but you don’t have to wait to snap these stamps up in the Riley and  Company store. They are available right now. Before you make your shopping list, head on over to the other DT members’ blogs and check out some of the other fantastic things available with this release.

 

Meet Burt! from Riley & Company

The Riley and Company Design Team are celebrating another new stamp release! This month, 42 Funny Bones stamps, 11 Inspirations stamps and 4 brand new images with a new character are introduced…best part? They are ALREADY in the Riley & Company store.

I gave you a hint on Monday that there was something new coming…it’s Burt!!! Maybe you’ve already seen him on the Riley & Company website or in one of the other DT members sneaks. But, he’s so fantastic you’ll want to see him again and again.

The images released this time have a bit of a Halloween theme, but stay tuned and I’m sure we’ll see more. Plus, he is a versatile critter and you can dress him up for whatever holiday you’d like.

This Halloween card features one of the new Funny Bone sentiments, “I Love Halloween” alongside the new Burt image. Burt looks pretty satisfied with himself.

The “I Love Halloween” sentiment has a second part that can easily be separated from the first line and used inside of your card too. Or, on it’s own, or paired with other Halloween themed Riley & Company stamps.

Here, Burt’s being paired up with an older Riley & Company Funny Bone.

And, this Burt image is the most versatile of the four new releases. I dressed him up a bit and, since we’re all going to love him, gave him a Valentine theme. That smile on his face makes me know Burt’s got an attitude and, sure enough, here he is thinking he’s gosh darn amazing!! Hopefully you’ll think so to.

In celebration of this new release, the Design Team presents Inspiration Week! Each day, from the 17th to 21st, we’ll have projects featuring the new stamps posted on our blogs so please hop through and see what we’ve got to show you.

 

 

Riley & Company Tickle My Funny Bone

It’s Day 2 of our Inspiration Week with Riley and Company, celebrating the release of 42 Funny Bones stamps, 11 Inspirations stamps and 4 brand new images. But, it’s also our regular inspiration day where the Design Team posts for you some inspiration around a specific theme.

Today, we’re celebrating those stamps that give you a giggle and using a FunnyBones sentiment in celebration of National Tell a Joke Day on August 16th.

Today, since it’s New Release week, I have two cards for you. The first uses an older stamp in the Riley & Company store, but the inside is all new. And it pairs perfectly.

First, here’s the outside:

And what do you have if you’re blessed with awesome brains and physical attributes? Pretty much everything!! All you need is a little…

And, this here’s a good joke for your National Tell a Joke Day enjoyment. This is another sentiment that can easily decorate both the outside and inside of your card by separating it into two pieces.

And, here’s the punch line on the inside:

Okay, you know the drill. Eight Design Team members, eight hops to check all the goodies out. You’re already done one, so get going!!

 

 

Riley & Company New Release!

The Riley and Company Design Team are celebrating another new stamp release! This month, 42 Funny Bones stamps, 11 Inspirations stamps and 4 brand new images with a new character are introduced…best part? They are ALREADY in the Riley & Company store. Don’t believe me, just go check it out.

In celebration of this new release, the Design Team presents Inspiration Week! Each day, from the 17th to 21st, we’ll have projects featuring the new stamps posted on our blogs.

Let me begin by telling you that this is a FABULOUS release. So many wonderful new sentiments and a new…..no, I can’t tell you today, you’ll have to come back on Wednesday to find out who the new character is. Unless he’s posted on one of my fellow Design Team member’s blog before then.

Today I have for you three of the new Funny Bones sentiments.

When I saw this one, it made me giggle! This one is called “Win the Lottery”. I can’t wait to use this one in a new 2016 calendar. There are so many great exercise themed stamps in the Funny Bones line that they’ll make a wonderful calendar project.

One of the things I love about the Funny Bones is that they pair so well with my main man, Riley. Here’s another great sentiment, “Turkey Hunting” with Hunting Riley. I am sending this one to my sister-in-law. They participate in a turkey shoot every year (not shooting real turkeys, but the prize for getting the paper turkey is a frozen one), so I think she’ll get a real kick out of this sentiment.

And, my third card for today (busy beaver, I’ve been), is a Retro Folk image with the new “Hating Everybody” sentiment. In case you’re wondering, the Retro Folk is called Coffee Lady.

Stop by the other Design Team blogs to check out more sneaks today and throughout the week.

These new (and old) stamps are available to purchase on the Riley and Company website now!

Hey everyone!

Did you check out my post on August 1st for Crafty Time Challenges? Our sponsor this month is Rick St. Dennis digital stamps and our theme is Movie, Book and Song. Our challenges run once a month, but we’ve been posting a mid-month reminder on the challenge blog, featuring a new DT member every month.

This month, it’s my turn. So, I wanted to share my mid-month creation here with you to. Everytime I look at this card, “Get Together” by The Youngbloods plays in my head.

If you’d like to play along in our challenge, come on over to the Crafty Time Challenges blog and link up your project. You have all month and you can win prizes!

From the Heart Stamps

There is this awesome digital stamp company that I’ve been meaning to play with for awhile. Finally I have a printer that easily and properly prints digital images and finding a company that has regular inspiration, awesome challenges, adorable images and reasonable prices…well, you just can’t help but join up!

The company is From the Heart Stamps and the variety of images and quality of downloads is wonderful.

Anyway, while I was patiently waiting for time to craft with them, a Design Team call popped up. Ack! What??? Decision time.

Now, I may be crazy but here’s the thing. One of the things that I love about being on a Design Teams is that it gives me is an excuse to craft. After the kids go to sleep, I could always do laundry, wash the dishes, or clean the house. But, sometimes it’s nice to have that commitment that gives me a little me time. So, here goes.

There. Did it. This adorable image is called Candy Cane for Snowman and he also happens to be the August stamp of the month. Here’s a close up of the snow effects I added.

Now, while I was browsing the store, I fell in love with this adorable cutie too, “Candy Run”. He was perfect for the current sketch challenge they have posted, so here is my entry for that challenge as well.

I don’t know what it is these days, but I’m starting to enjoy these adorable Halloween images. Normally, Halloween is not my thing and I don’t typically give out cards. Not this year!

Happy crafting people! And best wishes to the fellow entrants on the From the Heart Stamps DT call.
