It's The Holiday Time Blog Hop!

 It's the Holiday Time Blog Hop for Riley and Company.
Be sure you started here and I am the last stop.

This release has it all!  From ice skating to sledding, from
Angels to Santas.  What a collection!

I am introducing Antlers Riley and Angel Riley tonight.

First up Antlers Riley....
how cute is he? 

This Joy ornament is from the Target Dollar Spot.

This is a lattice edge folded card.

Next up is Angel Riley
 I fell in love the minute I saw this stamp!
Isn't he adorable?

Again a wood snowflake frame from Target's
Dollar Spot.  The gold frame is from Michaels
dollar bins.

Then a quick yet cute card.
Made me think of the phrase
Angels we have heard on high!

Day Three and more Sneek Peeks!

Wow day three already!  Be sure
and join us tomorrow night at 9 pm for
the blog hop!

Now for another peek.... 
how about Christmas trees and gift boxes.
Riley style.  LOL!

Meet Ornaments Riley.  Only Riley
would try to hide in the Christmas tree!

This is a tree ornament I picked up
in the Target Dollar Spot.  A quick and
easy item to make.

Then remember I said I had more
more framed Rileys!
How about Ornaments Riley
and the new Gift Box Riley.

Then last but not least a very untraditional Christmas card
done in brown tones.  I think this one would also work
with a Happy Birthday saying instead.

Have a wonderful day!  See you tomorrow for the blog

A Holiday Time Riley Challenge

Today we had a challenge from Laurie to make something
 with an outdoor theme.  How perfect is that for these new
stamps!  All sorts of winter fun!  Thanks for the challenge

How about a couple more dollar items all decorated up?
First a cute little box found in Target's Dollar Spot
with Ice Skating Sophie.

Then another photo frame from Michaels with Snowglobe

Last but not least a card done with Snowglobe Riley
This stamp is fast becoming one of my faves!

Please join us in this challenge.  Post a link here in
the comments or post at Splitcoast Stampers
with the keyword Riley2210.

See you tomorrow with more sneek peeks!


A Sneek Peek at a Sweet Stocking Sophie!

Isn't Stocking Sophie sweet?
I have to admit I love this little project. These
frames caught my eye at Michaels. Yes just
a dollar. It did have a plastic type film
instead of glass but I just cut it out.  Wait until
you see some of the other stamps in these frames!

Now this one used a bit of patterned paper which I stamped
Sophie on and then cut out the stocking to add to another
stamped Sophie. Super quick to color and you just pop it up
in the open frame with pop dots. Add a bow and you have
a sweet little smile bringer.

How about a quick card?  More dollar bin cards from Michaels.
I did use two cards to make one fancier card. 
I embossed the front of one.  Cut out the square design
then pop dotted it up on the second card.
Add Stocking Sophie popped up in one corner and a velveteen bow.

Super simple and super quick!

I know we all are so busy this time of year so I hope these
give you some quick ideas!

Until tomorrow!

Holiday Time for Riley and Company!

So who loves shopping the dollar bins at your favorite stores?
I do I do! LOL!  I am addicted to Michael's dollar bins
and do stop ever so often at Target's. Who loves
sneek peeks?  I do I do!

So how about some quick and easy Riley projects with my
latest dollar finds? I will tell you which store to grab the
dollar items at and of course just nab all 10 Riley stamps
Thursday night and you are ready to do some quick and
easy holiday cards and ornaments!
This set is absolutely awesome.

For those of you who do not have a Michaels or Target
nearby - just look at your favorite dollar store for photo
cards to be filled, small colorful frames and ornaments
with either a photo opening or a flat surface.

So come along with me this week while I show you
some fun ideas and of course some really cool cards
to make if you have a bit more time.

First up - Sledding Riley and Snowball Riley.

Oh so cute and oh so simple done in bright colors.
Grab some photo cards from Michaels (8 cards for $1)
and some photo frame ornaments from Target (just $1!)

All you need to do is cut some shapes for the ornament
and a 4x5 card for the photo frame.
I actually covered up the photo opening in the ornament.

Add some ribbon to the frame so it can hang up,
a bow at the bottom and the all important
Star Dust Stickles after you color your stamped images
and you are good to go.

Super simple with no need for patterned paper
or paint for ornaments.

Hope this gives you a idea to start with.
Stay tuned more to come! This set of
stamps is so versatile for Christmas!
These stamps are not just for cards. :-)

Can you believe it is November already?  Time for our first
Riley and Company challenge.
Cindy Haffner gave us this fantastic sketch for today's challenge.

Thanks Cindy!  I had so much fun with this
I tried it twice!  LOL!

I just love fall colors and what better stamps to use
with those than Popping Pumpkin Riley and
Raking Leaves Riley.

Please join us and try a card or two with this sketch!
