It's Blog Hop Time for Riley and Company!

Yeah it is Moose Madness time!
Come make the rounds of our Design Team members'
blogs, leave a comment as you go and you just might
win the unmounted stamp of your choice from

So first let's get our bearings....
You should have arrived here from Patti's Blog.

To start at the very beginning go here:

Now for the fun part!

PRESENTING TV RILEY!   (buy it here!)

When I saw this stamp I knew it was so me
and my family. We just love to watch tv.

First up - this card was inspired by this last weekend.
Do you know how hard it is to be a KState grad
married to the biggest KU Basketball fan?
Solution - His and Hers TVs!























Paper used is the MVP collection by
We R Memory Keepers.
Embossed with Bubbles Cuttlebug embossing folder.
Basketball brads from Hobby Lobby.
Saying was computer generated.
All coloring was done with Copic markers.

Okay this next one is just silly!
Things can get totally crazy sometimes at
Riley and Company Headquarters
(aka Stamper's Ink.)

Well what can you expect from a place
with so many moose on the loose?
The conversation was what Riley stamps could
represent a tv show?  It got too hilarious!
So this idea was born.  A wheel card
that the tv shows change on.























The story so far:
Riley sat down to watch tv one evening.
"Hum let's see what is on."
-Click-



















"The Riley and Company Ballet .... oh no quick
change channels before Sophie comes in."
-flip-


















"CSI : Riley City.... oh darn it's a
rerun."
-flip-



















"Oh yeah this is more like it... a new episode
of The Vampire Riley Diaries!"

Giggle! That Vampire Riley in the tv just did me
in when I made this wheel card.
Riley just had to pick that show.
The other Riley stamps are Ballet Sophie and
Detective Riley.
Diecuts are all from the Mickey and Friends
Cricut cartridge. Saying was computer
generated.

The print paper is Bo Bunny Dots. The cardstock
Black Magic Coredinations - I used both sides.
All coloring done with Copic markers.

Yes it is a big card 6" x 8" and I still could
only fit three images on the wheel.

Leave me a comment on what tv show you would have
a Riley stamp depict! All comments will be entered in
the drawing.

Now hop on over to Dana's Blog.

Come back tomorrow for the last of my new release
projects.

Whew!

acpriess said...

I love that flipping card....but I think I would depict either American Idol or Dancing with the Stars.....LOL

Monique said...

Very Creative!! Awesome job :)

Laurie H said...

Love the idea of the 'house divided' card! I will have to do this for my aunt and uncle.

April said...

Love this....I think you need Racecar Riley....multiple uses there and would make a great TV Show. ER Riley with the Riley that is in bed sick with the thermometer. Sorry, I am no good with names....lol

Virgo5 said...

OK your cards are over the top with fun and creativity! I was laughing at the TV programs...if my Hubby's home then we're definitely watching a detective show!!!

Dawn said...

That card is absolutely adorable! Great job!

ksqueenb said...

Therese you just kill me with how creative you are! I too could have used that House Divided card last week. But mine is one son likes KU the other likes KState and Hubby and I are Huskers. Love the wheel card idea. This would make a great Let's go camping card or occupational card for a recent high-school/college grad. Thanks for sharing!

Judith said...

Therese,

Love this. Thank you

Library Lady said...

What a riot - CSI Riley! LOL. What an inspired idea.

Janet said...

That TV wheel card is the cutest card I have ever seen. I have a son-in-law and brother-in-law that are never seen without a remote in their hand so I need that Riley TV stamp. Thanks for the great fresh ideas.

Kathy H said...

Adorable!!! Wonderful release!!!

Gina said...

Both cards are fantastic, but I LOVE that House Divided card, I know several people I could make a similar card for during sports season!

Robyn said...

oh my goodness! How cleaver can you be?

Koolkards said...

SOO creative. Love the idea.

Nancy said...

I love your wheel card! You could have Riley watching the weather with umbrella Riley, too. Or one of those nature shows with Riley camping (tent or trailer.)
Nancy

Roxie said...

So funny, loved the KU and KSU card, understand it completely!

Joyce said...

ok, those are the cutest card i've ever seen. too creative. love it.

Joyce said...

ok, that is the cutest idea ever. very creative. love that couch riley. makes me think of my husband and i get warm and fuzzy thoughts. lol.

Lissa said...

Okay, now those are just TOO STINKIN' CUTE!!! I love the idea of the wheel card and the 3 totally different TV shows... LOL "Oh no quick
change channels before Sophie comes in."
LOL! My house is divided, but in a different state... I root for UF, but Hubby likes FSU...
HUGS & Great job!!!

love2stamp said...

Oh my gosh, the his and hers TVs and Riley programs are too cute! So clever and creative!

Hmm... some more programs based on Riley images. How about the Bbq Riley having a show on the Food Network channel called Barbecuing with Riley?

Or using the Campfire Riley to do a take on the show Survivorman, called Survivormoose, demonstrating how to survive in the wild with no supplies, other than marshmallows of course!

Or the Painter Riley could have a show called Riley's Joy Of Painting, a take on Bob Ross's Joy Of Painting program.

Or the old Hee Haw show could be brought back, featuring Wheat Riley and Farmers Riley & Sophie!

Gosh, I could go on and on with my silly suggestions... LOL!

Lissa said...

Forgot to post my TV show... ;) I would have a cooking show or "Shear Genius"... LOL Could you imagine Riley or Sophie with some whacked out hairdo??? LOL!

Cristen said...

Ok what a cute card and a lot of thought nice work

Judy Applegarth said...

Love the moose TV!!hahhaha

redstampinsam said...

Moose TV is a riot! You've got great ideas!

mari said...

Now that is really creative. I am not sure which I like more, the house divided or the one with both Riley and Sophie. Great!!!

jody said...

Haha that's what it's like around our house with the remote.

Kathleen said...

Moose Tv is perfect especially the house divide too funny.

JessicaK said...

Wow - fantastic! Love the TV shows, but the House Divided card just cracked me up - perfect for the March Madness month :D

Lauri said...

Therese, you are so creative! You could have basketball Riley on TV with March Madness. I'm sure that's the channel that Riley would choose to watch!

BTW I haven't seen you in ages. When are you in the store?

Amelia said...

How cute - these seem to get more interesting the farther I get along on the Bog Hop.
Nodaker

Brandy said...

Great card! Interactive and all what more cold you ask for?

Bonnie said...

His & hers T.V.'s is a must in my household too! Great work!

Stampin_melissa said...

OMGoodness, just TOO funny! I love the house divided!

Crafty Guam Girl said...

Both cards are soooo cute!! You did such an awesome job.
And the t.v one? Oh My Gosh! How smart is that? For me it's a toss up between the CSI: Riley city and Vampire Riley diaries....though I might be leaning more towards Vampire Riley diaries!!

Sprytebyrd said...

Oh My Gosh!! What clever card designs!!
Thanks for the fun hop!

Blue752 said...

Dunja said...

Beth Ann said...

What adorable cards. Hard to pick my favorite as I love them both but I would have to say the changing of the channels is it.

Diane (djuseless) said...

I love your examples using TV Riley! Very creative!

Gael said...

Your channel changing card is AMAZING!!! I LOL'd with your "house divided"

Dorothy said...

Not the vampire (LOL)- probably CSI, but most definitely basketball would be choice #1 - hopefully KU/KSU - wish 2 KU grads in the family, the choice is obvious!
What a clever idea you have...

Candyce said...

What fun cards. I Love the house divided! Never find a card like that in the stores. Now on to the TV card. How Fantastic is that especially that you can click the channels... again never find a card like that in the store!

Super Work
TFS

Finja said...

Kristi said...

so cute! Love the house divided card (well the KU side of it anyway ;)) And the wheel card is too perfect- everyone has a channel surfer in their home, although I don't think that they make a wheel big enough to handle my husband's flipping thru...

Tanya/Riley and Company said...

I have to say - you have topped yourself this time! I can't wait to see what is next! I laughed so hard I had tears! AWESOME!!!!!

cantrell6 said...

What about Sophie? I think Cheerleader Sophie might be a great addition to Glee - the newest Cheer-io member! Cute card, very cute idea.
