Welcome to the Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Riley Blog Hop!

Be sure you started at the beginning
which is here:

I am the last stop.  As you travel along
be sure and leave a comment on each
blog because each design team
member is giving away your choice
of one of the new release stamps

There were so many adorable stamps
this time but I had my faves....

First up who could resist celebrating
along with Sophie on her engagement?

Introducing Engagement Sophie!

Again I used crepe paper pleating and some
Teresa Collins Blingage and paper.

Then how about Rock Star Riley?  Love love
love this stamp! Perfect for masculine cards
or girlie cards....

This one uses an oldie but goodie DCWV stack called
Rock Star.  I knew I was saving it for something!
The paper is embossed with a Tim Holtz embossing folder
and has a couple of Spellbinder Nesties cutouts for accents.
 I love the new You Rock stamp!
I stamped it on an embossed tag from the Cuttlebug
Emboss and Cut set called Embossed Tags.
A bit of Vintage Photo distress ink was added as accent.

Yes another new stamp!  You are a Rock Star!

Paper and ribbon from the DCWV Rock Star collection.

I hope you enjoyed the hop!  Be sure and add comments
as you go so you may have a chance to win one of these
great stamps!

Sneek Peek 3 for Riley!

Welcome to sneek peek number 3!

How about a sweet little Moose in the Moon?

Be sure and stop by tomorrow (Thursday) at 9 pm central
for our blog hop for all these wonderful new release stamps!

See you then!

Sneek Peek 2 and a Challenge

Sorry for the delay!  Seems like I have been moving
in slow motion since my trip to Dallas this last weekend!
Hello to anyone who was at the Cricut Stampede!

We have a challenge from Frances.  It is a great sketch!

Please join us in this challenge.  You may post your
creation at Splitcoast Stampers and please use the
keyword Riley0611.

Ready for a sneek peek on my card?
This stamp is just too sweet....
New Parents Riley and Sophie.

Paper is by K & Company.  I also have a new love.  Crepe paper!
I picked this technique up from a Teresa Collins class this
weekend. (More on that later.) 
Just use double sided tape (red line) and
pleat the crepe paper on to it.  I just folded up the crepe paper
and cut lengthwise down the bundle to make a narrower strip.
Fun fun look!

Thanks for stopping by!
