Riley and Company - For A Friend!

Today we are kicking off a new challenge at Riley and Company! Every other week we share a creation for our challenges and it's always a blast! This week Sandye is hosting our Riley and Company Challenge which is to create a card with 'Create a Card for a Friend'!

For my card I decided to use one my older favorite stamps, that always makes me smile, Schoolgirl Sophie! There are so many stamps to pick from it is a task in itself to decide which stamp to use each challenge. I thought this darling Schoolgirl Sophie would be perfect for a friend, and certainly make them feel loved! I do love dressing up our stamps and matching color from the designer series papers I pull out. Be sure to play along with us this week, and enjoy!

Thank you for stopping by and checking out our new challenge, be sure to come back again soon to see what I create next. Also, stop by the Riley and Company Blog to play along as well!

Today we are kicking off a new challenge at Riley and Company! Every other week we share a creation for our challenges and it's always a blast! This week Heather is hosting our Riley and Company Challenge which is to create a card with 'Paper Piecing'!

For my card I decided to use one of the wonderful Funny Bone stamps, Happy Homemaker! There are so many stamps to pick from it is a task in itself to decide which stamp to use each challenge. I thought this Happy Homemaker stamp would look lovely in shades of yellow, so I used this pattern from one of my many 6x6 paper pads for her darling dress and one of the layers.

Riley and Company Challenge - Love!

Today we are kicking off a new challenge at Riley and Company! Every other week we share a creation for our challenges and it's always a blast! This week Heather is hosting our Riley and Company Challenge which is to create a 'Love' creation!

For my card I decided to use one of the wonderful Riley stamps, Couch Riley! I love thinking about Valentine's Day and people who care about each other taking the time to show their feelings, but then again I also love chocolates! This darling image, Couch Riley, is perfect for the Love challenge, as well as how some people end up on Valentine's Day. The heart box of chocolates made me smile the first time I saw this stamp and while going through my stash I knew it would be the perfect stamp to color up for this challenge. I used shades of pink of course to match the couch and the box!

Here is the project I created for today's hop: 
For my creation today I used the fabulous new image My Heart Cake! I simply love coloring images from Crafty Sentiments Designs, and these cuties are no exception! I think our stamps keep getting better and better!

Today I went with the traditional pink card, but I didn't use just any shade of pink, I used HOT pink! I wanted this darling image to really pop off the card and grab your attention. I used almost tone on tone for the card layers so that stark contrast of the white around the My Heart Cake stamp would be more noticeable. I also added little touches of Candy Dots to finish off the layering and corners of my finished card.
