It's Tickled Tuesday Time!

I have two cards for you today from the Ink Spot Design Team!  My first card is a side stair step card.  My cards are so often just regular cards--and I'm trying to branch out!  Almost the majority of cards that I make are for females, so I'm trying to make more masculine cards.  This stair step card uses Tool Time Riley, perfect for that man on your card list! Love this sentiment called Get Your Husband to Fix Things (isn't that the truth!)?
















If you look at my second card, you will think the front is very plain--and not even related to The Ink Spot team--but wait until you see the inside!  The inside is a book fold card, using School Boy Riley and Schoolgirl Sophie.  This really makes a cute "back to school" card.  I love those--as I am a retired teacher so as the kids go back to school, I don't!  Teaching was great, but retirement is better:)

It's Tickled Tuesday Time!

If you follow the Riley blog, you'll find some new features (along with a new design team).  Today's new feature is Tickled Tuesday.  Several cards will be highlighted--and here are two of mine.  I created a side stairstep card using Hula Hoop Riley and Invisible Hula Hoop Riley.
















My other card is a circle accordion card.  It uses the images This Wine is Making Me Awesome, Wine Glass, and Wondering Midge.  Doesn't Tanya have great images!
















And here is the card opened:
















Be sure to check out these two and all the other wonderful images available at our online store.

The Ink Spot New Release--Day 5

It's almost over--the new release and my summer!  As a retired teacher, I still LOVE using all my summer time wisely.  Hope you have used your Ink Spot release week wisely--and have placed a big order!  I think the Riley I used on this card (Floating Riley) is my favorite.  I tore blue paper and glued it to a card front to look like water and waves.  The sand was torn out of cork (I love using it or sandpaper for beach sand).  Riley is relaxing on his raft--and enjoying every minute of his summer--just as I plan on continuing to do.  Hope you enjoy the rest of yours also, but find time to fit in some crafting time with new images from this release.  You can find them in our store here. Have fun!  Thanks for visiting.

The Ink Spot New Release Day 4

And the fun continues!!!  I wish you could see this card in person.  It's a spinner card--and the beer stein just rolls and rolls around.  It is sparkly and even has foam on top.  Tanya sure did a fantastic job designing all these stamps.  If you like this one (Beer Mug--Small), there is even a bigger one!  Be sure to check out all of the stamps in the online store here . You don't want to miss out on these stamps.  I love them all.

The Ink Spot New Release Day 3

Welcome back!  I have a project for you today.  Have you checked out all of Tanya's newly released images and sentiments? You can see them on the website here. They are fantastic!  I used the new dog image (Pumpkin Puppy).  I added him to the front of an apron recipe card (the recipe is for Witches Brew Punch).  This makes such a cute project.  There is SO much more to see--be sure you visit all the design team members (links on the right of this blog)--and visit daily until Friday.  Be sure to place an order!!!

The Ink Spot Release--Day 2

I have another newly released image to share with you today!  My husband and I are cat people--and although no cats live here now, Leon and Leonard lived many years with us.  Leon was a Siamese (really a mixed breed but looked just like a Siamese) so I always color my cat images to look like Siamese.  I love this new cat from Tanya called Felix the Cat! His hand is outstretched so he can hold balloons (like I did) or beer mugs (part of the new release) or many other things.  He's just so much fun to work with!  Be sure to check him out on our site. I'm sure you will find lots there that you like! Speaking of liking, be sure to check out what the rest of the design team is sharing.  Enjoy!
