Riley and Co. January ’17 Card Bonanza

It is Card Bonanza Tuesday on the Riley and Co. blog..

This week I have 2 cards featured along with Design Team members Joy Stagg and Katie Skiff

My first card features the Winter House from the Mushroom Lane stamps.  I love coloring all the details in the houses. I usually color multiple images at a time and fussy cut the to create all the layers.

The second card features the You Are A Diamond stamp. Diamonds, sparkle and glitter are always a girl’s favorite things.

Check back next week for Riley and Co.’s January Release Week. There are lots of new things planned. Can’t wait to share them with you!

Card Bonanza at Riley & Company for December 13

Design Team 3 (Katie, Joy and myself) is up with their cards this week. Stop by their blogs for some more insripation.

Today I am sharing 2 winter themed cards to go along with the snow we have here in the Midwest. Actually, I have had snow/winter on my brain for almost 2 years.  My daughter will be getting married this weekend and the theme is …. you guessed it winter.

The first card uses Snowman and Riley along with some snowflake buttons, and a pom pom.

This one uses Snowball Riley.  I created my own slider card for this one… He just looked like he needed to be rolling down the hill.

Lisa’s Look at Tim’s Tag for September 2016

tag9-16-1

This month I played with the techinques Tim used. I liked using the Distress Paints on the background. You can check it out here. Then I worked at using the Yupo paper, the alcohol inks and the Archival Inks. (Check out Tim’s technique here.) I just didn’t like the results I was getting. So I went with plan B and tried the Speciality Stamp Paper and the alcohol inks.  I was happy with my results. Then for embellishments I used some foil tape to create the leaves. I loved how the tags turned out so much I made a card for my husband for his birthday. (I will add a picture later. I forgot to take a picture before I gave it to him.

The ladies in class at Cafe Crop enjoyed making the tags.

Tickled Tuesday at Riley & Company

It’s Tickled Tuesday at Riley & Company. Check out what some of my MooseMates, Katie Skiff and Joy Stagg came up with this week. Here is what I have been working on.

schoolhouse1

With it being Back to School Time, I used the Mushroom Lane School House to create a shadow box that a teacher could place on a desk or shelf. I used multiple layers for the schoolhouse to create dimension.

I also created a card for the in honor of the end of summer and beginning of fall.  I used the A Fallen Leaf stamp for the sentiment and solid card stock and inks for the leaves. I love how the leaves look somewhat realistic.

The Painter Riley and Life is Art was a fun card to make. Love the sentiment… it is so true.

Tickled Tuesday at Riley and Company

MushroomLaneHouse2.1I have been loving the new Mushroom Lane Stamps at Riley & Company. Today I am featuring Polkadot House and House 2. I stamped multiple images of each and colored them with colored pencils. For this one I used some mulberry paper for the background and added cotton balls for the clouds.  I even used sand for the pathway.

Here you can see some of the layers.  The roof has 3 layers and the roots in front are two layers.

Here is the Polkadot House in purple and greens.  Again I used multiple layers for the house.
