Riley Release--Day Four

I love new release time with Riley.  Tanya always has many new offerrings--and this release is no exception! My favorite sentiment from this release is one that all people from the US should be living now--Hold Hands. Not Grudges! This is a time that we, as US citizens, should be following this advice!  The image I used with it is Gingerbread Riley and Sophie.  This style is a criss-cross card, one of my favorites to make!

I certainly enjoyed making cards with this new release--and I am sure you will too!  This is a good time for you to go to our store and check out the new release.  With FREE shipping through Sunday, November 20, it's also a good time to order stamps for your Christmas cards.  There's still plenty of time to get those made (I finished mine today!).  Don't forget too that the rest of the design team has inspiration for you today, and every Tuesday!

Riley New Release Day Three

It's another great day for the Riley design team.  We have SO many wonderful new stamps to share with you!  As you may know, Tanya released a new line called Mushroom Lane in August.  The original images are available in our store, plus now there are more!!!  I used a new image called House I.  With it, I created a recipe card.  What do you think is eaten in houses on Mushroom Lane?  Why baked mushrooms, of course!  I know you will love these images (and the recipe for mushrooms is a very good one also!) I'm sure you will think that these images are fun to color, so be sure you realize that there are also two Mushroom Lane coloring books available.  Can you say Christmas presents?!!!

Next I'm featuring a stair-step card with some poetry on it.  The sentiment is called A Poem for Mornings. I totally agree with it!  A poem for mornings:  coffee, coffee, coffee, Coffee Coffee, Coffee Everyone shut up.  Coffee.  My sentiments exactly!!!

And now--my favorite for the day!  The sentiment is Shark Music--and says "I don't know how people get eaten by sharks...I mean, how do you not hear the music?  I would have loved to put one of the discs in the card that would have played the Jaws theme, but I couldn't get one soon enough.  Instead I just settled on a gel card.  The circle is filled with hand sanitizer and really looks like water--it even has bubbles!  I created a shark from an oval with a "V" cut out and filled in with deckle scissors (resembling teeth).  My granddaughter will love this card!

More inspiration from the other design team members.  More new stamps in our online store.  FREE shipping still available through Sunday, November 20.  Don't miss out!!! Come back again tomorrow!

Riley New Release--Day Two

Back again with more new goodies for you.  Be sure to go to the Riley Online store and check out this wonderful release.  Tanya has outdone herself--plus she is offerring free shiping through Sunday, November 20. What a deal!

My card today uses a sentiment called Do Not Read. (the inside of this card). I'm a retired teacher--and I know that if you tell someone not to do something, they will!  The inside of the card says "you little rebel. I like you."  I wanted to find CSI caution tape to use, but when I couldn't, I just diecut the word "caution".  I think it mimics CSI tape in the yellow and black color scheme.

The inside of the card:

Lots more inspiration from the rest of the design team--and come back tomorrow for more:)

Riley New Release!

It's a much anticipated day here--a new release from Riley and Company--and it's a great one!  Tanya has so many fantastic new images and sentiments for you.  Check them out here--and remember that there is FREE shipping through Sunday, November 20.

The first card that I'm sharing has a sentiment that hits home with me.  It's called Now That I'm Old and it says "Being old doesn't seem so old...Now that I'm old.  Happty Birthday Anyway.  Can you relate?  I sure can!  The image that I used with it is Jack.  Hope there is enough of the background designer paper for you to see that it says "old guys rule".  Love it!!!

Next is a card with a lovely sentiment called Being Kind.  I always love making a card with a pink and black color combo!

Don't forget to check out what the rest of the design team has created (links on the right hand side of this blog)--and come back tomorrow for more!  Remembeer that FREE shipping!

Tickled Tuesday

It's Tickled Tuesday for Inkspot!  You may know that Tanya released a fantastic new line called Mushroom Lane in August.  My first card uses one of these images called Library.  When I look at these Mushroom Lane images, I immediately think of fairies living around the places.  Becasue of that, I created a shaker card with fairy dust inside (it is really gold flakes).  I know just the little girl I want to send this card to!

My second project is one I truly love!  It is a cake made with Hershey nuggets, and was hard for me to make--the reason being that I sent my hubby to buy the candy which he ate before I had time to make it.  I then went to several stores and could not find the nuggets--but finally had success! The image I used is Farmers Riley and Sophie.  I think this will be so cute to sit on the dessert table on Thanksgiving!

Be sure to check out our blog and see what the others have created.  After getting all this inspiration, you should then also head over to our store and buy some of these wonderful stamps so you can create!  Enjoy--and have fun:)
