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!
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.

This week at Riley and Company, there are a variety of projects created by my MooseMates for Halloween being featured.
Here is a set of treat bags that could be for co-wokers, friends, family or those special trick-or-treaters this Halloween. I used Burt R.I.P.,
Pumpkin Puppy, Standing Witch with Broom, and Holding Pumpkin. The backgrounds are done with soft chalks.
I also have an accordion type card that features Mummy Riley . Good thing I do put more into my career.
Check out my MooseMates Joy Stagg and Katie Skiff for more inspiration.
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.
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.
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.
Thanks for stopping by today. Don’t forget to check out Riley & Co. and their Facebook page Riley (the Moose!) and Company.
Just a quick post… I almost forgot to post my look at Tim’s tag for August.
I 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.
Check out the other Mushroom Lane stamps at Riley and Company.
Some you you know I have been working on a top secret project. This week I can finally reveal what I have been making. It is new release week over at Riley & Company. They have several new stamps available this week.
This cute moose is Floating Riley doesn’t he look like he is having fun!!
