Sneak Peek Day Three!

Wednesday, December 3, 2008

Who doesn't love Riley?? I know I sure do! And what's better than one Riley on a card?? Two of course! The two Rileys being released this week work perfectly together on a card. Van Riley and Trailer Riley are their names and they make a dynamic duo!

I stamped the two images on watercolor paper, colored them up with SU inks then cut them out with my trusty precision scissors. I then stamped out two extra Rileys, colored, cut and mounted them on the original images for some depth. The patterned paper is a great die cut piece that I found at Michaels. It's in the shape of a road sign, but I cut it down to fit the card. The size of this card is 4" x 8.25", which should fit in a standard sized business envelope.

My second Riley card for you isn't what it appears to be. It's Van Riley disguised as an ambulance! Can you tell? I masked off the back panel window with a post it note (or rather a bit of one), inked him up and stamped him out. Then I colored a scrap piece of watercolor paper in Real Red and Cranberry Crisp, drew a cross over it with a Micron pen and cut it out. Adhere it to Van Riley in place of the window and voila! You now have Ambulance Riley! :D The charm is from Hanna Stamps. If you haven't checked out the charms at the store, you really should because there are so many of them and you're bound to find one that fits your card theme!

Some of my lovely friends left comments saying they wanted to see our Christmas tree, so here it is! The photo doesn't do it justice though. I wish computers had 'smell-a-vision'! I don't need to light any Yankee Candles at the moment because the smell from this tree consumes you as soon as you walk in the door!
Well, only one more day until the release party! I hope to 'see' you all there.....err, I mean HERE! I have my last two sneak peeks for you tomorrow, so y'all come back now yer hear?!

Sandra, love both these Riley cards. You always make such fantastic cards! Love your tree. Sure wish I could have a real one 'cause I love the fragrance but, unfortunately, they are such a fire hazard here in the dry SW desert.
