Riley Jan Sneak Peak Day 3

Hello, well today is day 3 of the new Riley sneak Peaks which means Blog Hop tonight at 10 pm! I hope you can make it. The new releases will be available tomorrow Jan 21 at Riley and Company.

This is the new Heart Balloon Riley. I used a Valentine theme, but you don't have to , he's very versatile, check out Frances's card today to see a different look!

So this Riley was coloured with copics, and then I thought it would be funny if he was wearing a pair of those silk boxes you see out at valentines! I tried making some but I was having trouble getting the silk look. Then I put a piece of ribbon across him & I loved that, but I thought it would be great if the sentiment was on the ribbon. Tried that several times so now I have a bunch of red satin ribbon in the garbage! lol Then I decided to return to the paper, but keep the ribbon idea...this is my usual process!

The card base is white, with a layer of red embossed with the heart block EF. I wrapped ribbon around that, I thought I had just bought some nice white ribbon with satin & sheer mix, but of course I couldn't find it! So this is two ribbons. I found the ribbon when I went to take the picture, my batteries died, and so I reached for my camera bag for more and was sitting on my new ribbon! I knew I bought some!

The main panel is the spellbinders pendant fleur de lis, then a panel popped up. The corners are rounded and the xo is a stamp from Michael's $1 bin $1.50 if you're Cdn.! Then Riley who is also popped up with his ribbon! lol

So what do you think?
