Delightfully Dolores-Halloween Fun!

Hello everyone! We have another treat for you today! It's time for another Delightfully Dolores project. I actually squealed out loud when I saw it. Dolores really blew my socks off this month! Check it out and read the description in her own words:

Happy Halloween, Riley fans.  This month I used a box card die from Our Daily Bread for the base of my project.  Each character, FrankenRiley, Bridezilla, DracuRiley, Wicked Witch Sophie and Mummy Riley, was colored with Copic markers and cut out by hand.  "Boo" is a Poppy Stamp die placed on the moon along with some wisps of cotton for clouds.  All the characters are glued to a strip of acetate.  The spiders are from a Martha Stewart punch on glossy black card stock and the graveyard is a die from a Used Stamp Sale. Unfortunately, I don't know the manufacturer.  I wish you all a Spooktacular Halloween. See you next month. 
 









I told you Dolores knocked it out of the park, didn't I? See you next time, until then I'm going to drool over this card a bit longer. Hehe

Designer Highlight-Heidi Erickson

Hello everyone! Happy Monday! To start your week off right, we are featuring another fantastic design team member. This month our designer is Heidi Erickson! Heidi is a wonderful designer and always comes up with the neatest ideas. Not only does she design for Riley and Company, she also owns her own stamp store, The Stamp Shoppe! Be sure to check out her blog and if you are anywhere near Schofield, Wisconsin do make it a point to stop by and visit her store! On to her wonderful project...Lookie:

Heidi used Mushroom Lane Schoolhouse to make a calendar. What a perfect teacher gift!






Isn't that just the cutest calendar project? Useful and adorable, what more you could you ask for? I think any of the Mushroom Lane images would make awesome mini calendars but choosing just one would be so hard!

I hope you are inspired to look at your stamp stash with fresh eyes. 

Until next time,
Angji

Delightfully Dolores-Riley on the Farm

Hello everyone! Today is the start of our monthly series featuring the work of Dolores S. Dolores has worked for Riley and Company and the brick and mortar store (now closed) for 10 years! Dolores is the reason why Funny Bones exist. I bet you didn't know that, huh? Dolores does fantastic work and I can't wait to share her projects with you. For her first project, she took Riley down to the farm and it couldn't be any cuter! Check it out:











Here is Dolores' process in her own words:

 "I used a precut side accordion card. The Our Daily Bread "Grass Border" was used to cut several layers of grass in colors of greens and golds. The stamps used are Riley and Company "Tractor", stamped the original way and then stamped in reverse, and "Farmers Riley & Sophie". Copic markers were used for coloring. The stamped images were cut out by hand. The sunflowers were cut from patterned paper. A strip of ribbon was used on the front to cover up raw edges. The grass layers were popped up, as was the Farmer stamp.


The Riley and Company "Wheat" stamp would also work on this card."



I am huge fan of Dolores' work. Look at all of the detail she puts into her work! I don't know about your but I'm sure inspired to look at my Riley stash with new eyes!
