Riley's Winter Wishes


Over the weekend I had a chance to play with a couple of my new Riley's! Yay! I love Riley, he's so darn cute and does so many fun things on his stamps!!

The Hanna Stamps forum released some new stamps last week (I won the new Riley in his pyjamas too) and they posted a couple of cool challenges. I played in both of them but today I'll just show you the layers challenge. I really like it when challenges are pretty simple and general so that everyone can play along. I don't usually take part if there's a big technique or a lot of restrictions involved.

Anyway this challenge was to use more than 2 layers on your card, so I decided to use my new Riley with his Christmas tree and some scrap dp from DCWV that was laying on my desk (along with many other scraps). I stamped Riley on Wausau bright white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured him in using my handy, dandy......Copics!! Oh I had a deja vu of Blue's Clues there for a minute!! haha!




The card base is Certainly Celery, I matted Riley on Soft Sky and stamped the Verve Visual sentiment on So Saffron. I punched a couple of Martha Stewart snowflakes from some turquoise glitter paper and added some matching glitter brads in each of the four corners. I pop dotted the main layer and then added sparkle to the snow with Stardust Stickles!! Ain't he cute???

For those who are interested, yesterday's library trip was actually not as painful as I'd envisioned. We started off very early and made good time travelling to each of our destinations. We picked up a lot of ideas of what to do....and what not to do, when renovating our own library. I went with a fun group of ladies so we did a lot of yakking and laughing. But after a full day and a long drive home, I was whipped! I'm heading in to work the late shift today, so maybe I'll have a little nappy-poo this morning!

Have a great Friday!!!
