It's a Riley Card Bonanza!

I hope you all enjoy our Card Bonanzas as much as I enjoy creating for them!  My first card today uses some of the dies from Karen Burniston in cahoots with Riley and Company.  These dies are SO much fun to use. This card features the Tree Pop-Up Die Set--the tree trunk, the flowers, and the leaves were all from this set.  I also used the Nature Edges Die Set for the grass and clouds.  The word celebrate on the inside is from the Word Set 2: Birthday Die Set. The Riley image is called Tent Riley.















Opened:















My next card uses one of the Retro Folks called Winking Gal. I think those images are so easy to pair up with Funny Bones stamps.  The one I used here is Damn Girl.















My last card is one I always need to keep on hand--as I am always forgetting something--in most cases a birthday!  The image is The Moosehatter.

Happy Father's Day!

Here's a Riley card for all you fathers celebrating today!  The image is Riley's Band and the sentiment was computer-generated.  Love the little one at the end playing the flute as it reminds me of our granddaughter, Liz!

It's a Riley Card Bonanza!

Don't you just love Riley card bonanzas!  I have a few cards for you today.  I needed some graduation cards so I had to get out my stamps and get to work!  I love both of these Funnybone stamps which are so appropriate for graduates.  The one on the left is Life Holds Special Magic and the one on the right is Make Your Parents Proud.  Love these cards even though they don't look like a traditional graduation card.
















My next card looks more traditional for the graduate.  I used the image called Holding Diploma Riley. It's a good feeling to have my graduation cards finished!















Since we are in the middle of baseball season, I decided that would be my theme for my next card.  I used Baseball Riley on it.















Check out what others have created on the Riley blog.  While there, also look for info about the new Karen Burniston dies in cahoots with Riley.  OH MY!!! You will love them!!!

New Dies in Town!!!

To any of you who love dies as much as I do--you will be pleased to know that Karen Burniston is in Cahoots with Riley and Company!  They have new dies that are getting ready to ship on June 1--and you won't want to miss them.  You can check them out at www.KarenBurniston.com.

My first card uses Snowman Twist Circle and the Hills die from the Nature Edges.  The outside is cute--but the inside is even cuter.  See the second picture to see the card opened up with a sentiment called The Weather Outside is Frightful and the Wine Glass Die.















Opened:















My second card is a shaker card made with Cupcake Pop-Up and Happy Birthday to You from Word Set 2/Birthday.















Stay tuned, as I have lots more dies to use.  I'll be back when crafting time is found.

It's a Riley Card Bonanza!!!

I have two cards for inspiration for you today.  The first one is perfect for one of the hardest groups to create for (in my opinion)--little boys!  I used Pirate Riley and die cut letters to spell that pirate phrase--AARGH!  With a skull embellishment, I thought it was just perfect.  The second card uses such a sweet sentiment (Be a pineapple. Stand tall. Wear a crown and be sweet on the inside).  I found these little pineapple embellishments which paired up perfectly with the designer paper I had.

















Thanks for looking!

Riley Release--Day Five

The last day for this new release.  Don't you just hate to see it end.  Be sure not to be left out--go to the store and check out the stamps, dies, sentiments--and specials!!!

My first card for today uses a new sentiment--Aspire to be the person your dog thinks you are.  I paired this up with Tucker the Dog.  I always love adding googly eyes to this image. This card also uses one of the circle dies which I am SO pleased to have.  There are squares, circles, and ovals--and it is so easy to use them when crafting.















My next card is an accordion fold card, again using the circle dies.  The images I used are Bubbles Riley abd Bouncy Ball Riley.  The inside of this card shows the new sentiment--Some people outgrow childish shenanigans. Some of us master them!  Love it!!!

 









Opened:















And my last card for this release uses one of the wonderful new Mushroom Images paired with
Car Riley.  The inside of the card says "I'm a craftaholic on the road to recovery. Just kidding, I'm on the road to the craft store."  Haha--how true!!!















This release has been so much fun for the DT members; I hope you too have enjoyed it.  Be sure to shop!!!
