New Riley's in DA House!!

Have you seen all the new Riley's? Oh man... they are all SO cool. So many Meese, so little time. LOL. I'm in Meese heaven and can't wait to stamp them all!

I missed the PJ party at SCS on Friday. I was so sad. I had a very scary weekend. My sweet Grandma called and told me she couldn't breathe. My heart sank when I got her to the hospital and they thought she was having a heart attack. Filled my big girl panties, then called my parents. I managed not to cry in front of Gramma. They admitted her and took good care of her. They now think she was getting pneumonia an it wasn't a heart attack. THANK GOD. She gets to come home today! Her new house will be done soon, and she will be right next door.... I can't wait to have her closer so that we can all be there for her and make sure she is always comfortable and safe.

Back to the card. I got those pretty brads from Hanna Stamps. They are the pink and brown collection from Heidi Swapp. I'm so happy to have some brown brads! And, well, you know I can never have too much pink of anything. The designer paper is from Chatterbox and it's called Rosey Villa Vines. Riley is colored with Copic Markers and paper pieced with the same Chatterbox paper. The antlers are covered with glue from the Quikie Glue pen, then covered with Caramel Latte Tan Fun Flock.

The Recipe:

Stamps: Riley Stamps (Hanna Stamps)
Paper: Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie, Chatterbox Rosey Villa Vines.
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic Markers.
Other: Copic Air Brush System, Nesties, Cuttlebug, Heidi Swapp Brads, White Taffeta Ribbon, Crafter's Tool Kit, Quickie Glue Pen, Fun Flock, Dimensionals, Janome Sew Mini, Scor-Pal.

Hope you all had a great weekend. Thanks for stopping by.

I just love Riley! He is ADORABLE as is your card! :D I just ordered some and I am super excited! I have a question for you though, if you buy Riley unmounted, are you supposed to mount him on something or can he be used with an acrylic block like the clear stamps?

Hi Stephani!

Yes, get a sheet of eZmount, and then mount and trim on that.Then, he'll stick to any acrylic block. LOVE eZmount. :)

First of all, glad to hear that your grandmother is doing ok.

I check your blog everyday, even tho I don't comment all the time. I LOVE YOUR WORK!!!!! They have given me a lot of inspiration.

I do have a question - how do you paper piece Riley stamps? I own a several (read: lots) of them and want to try the technique.

Thanks and as the saying goes, keep up the great work! :o)
