Riley BLOG HOP Time!

Welcome to the Riley and Company Blog Hop! If you're following the Blog Hop in order, you should have arrived here from Cathy's. If you didn't I'll have a link to all the Designers at the bottom!

All the new stamps are available now at Riley and Company! There is a 10% discount if you decide to purchase the whole set! And I'm sure you know by now, each Design Team member is giving away a Free Riley (winners choice) to one lucky randomly drawn winner! All you have to do is leave a comment to be entered.

My first project features the New Mummy Riley! I stamped him onto a white tag made with the Tag #3 nesties die. I cut around the edge and then matted this with a black tag. The edges are sponged with Tim Holtz antique linen. I stamped Mummy Riley again on white, and coloured both with copics. I cut one out and popped it up.

I started with a regular can, Manwich to be exact, and coloured the top and bottom rims with black permanent marker. Then to make my faux gauze, I took one 8x11" piece of white cardstock, off stamped it with the Canvas background stamp in Tim Holtz antique linen ink. Then I tore the sheet into strips. The strips were then crumpled, opened and I sponged on more ink. I put a strip of scor tape on the backs of the strips to cover the can. One piece of cardstock was more than enough to cover this size can.

There's jumbo eyelets in the sides of the can and wire for the handle. I also used cording, fibre and gauze to tie the tag on and decorate!

This card features the new Hiking Riley! I stamped Riley onto white and coloured him wth copics. I guess I got stuck on the tag idea! lol I used the EK pine edge punch to make the tree line, and added it to the baja breeze tag, then backed it with early espresso. Pretty much all the edges are sponged. I cut Riley out and popped him up. The sentiment is from the 'Things Riley Might Say' set. I finished this off with a wood bead and some twine. The whole tag is on dimensionals too.

The card base is early espresso with cajan craze embossed with the Quickutz leaves EF. The edges are sponged and I added some faux stitches with a fine tip marker.

So next up is Silke, hop on over and see what wonderful creations she has tonight!

Here's a list of the whole Hop incase you missed someone!
