Riley fishing!! Is he not the cutest little guy ever? I used the prisma pencils along with the gamsol to color. I am trying to get the hang of that technique, having fun playing. Also used the cuttlebug embossing folder and a couple buttons for a little extra.

Riley camping! This card I did the 'making' technique with the tree behind the tent. Still getting the halo effect, not sure what I am doing wrong, but it turned out okay. The fire and flys are stampin up Roughin it set. Tree is from lovely as a tree, and of course 'little Riley'
The minute I seen the stamp of Riley fishing, I knew my stamps by judith stubbie "fish" would be perfect. I sponged the water on, Kinda cute.
This is an older set from stampin up that I always wanted. And finally got online. I love this sentiment along with all them little guys having fun in the pool. Cuttlebugged the background. giga, and mega punches, postage stamp scissors, and coloring with gamsol.
"How does your garden grow".... Kind of a plain card, but I like it the same. I wish I was better at matching papers together for cards, but mine never really turn out good. I also used a stampin up rub-on for the watering can. gamsol coloring

I love this little chick... I think it is adorable. I used the cuttlebug on this one as well, and also some basic grey paper. When I went to my first ever stamp convention this spring with my boyfriends mom and sisters, they turned me onto basic grey paper. I never heard of it before. I love those little 6x6 pads.
More of my Judith stamps. This one was fun to make, and so so simple! I also used the liquid pearls on the flowers, and the verse if from stampin up
Who doesn't love the bellas????? ADORABLE!!! I love this one, and I also used my rubber stamp tapestry strawberrie stamps for the corner. (Another stamp company I learned about at the convention!) I colored her with prismas and gamsol.
Yet more Judith stamps.... and the verse is stampin up. So simple, yet it looks kinda classy. I love judith stamps, and stampin up stamps, and ..... well I guess I LOVE all stamps!!!

Dorky Bird

With this little fella, I had to laugh. Tall bird, beating Dorky Bird over the head with a hammer. All stamps are judiths except the alphabet. I showed this to my boyfriend, and he's like, "Why is he beating up dorky bird?" I just laughed and said "Cuz he's dorky bird"... Don't get me wrong, I love them both, but this card makes me laugh. Fun to make...


Another Judith stamp I fell in love with, and by the looks of it, this silly giraffe is in love also with all the hearts fluttering around. How could a person not fall in love with a face like that??

Judith Stamps

I made the best trade ever on SCS. A lady traded me a bunch of her Judith stamps for some of my stampin up sets. I LOVE this bird, actually I love all of her stuff, from the birds, to the stubbies. They are all great. Still trying to get the gamsol technique down, but loving it. The hat is pop-dotted.

Over the Hill

Another Riley. This card was so fun to make. I'm not sure who I will give it to, but at least I will have it on hand when someone turns "over the Hill"... He is so dang cute in that little car! I'm glad I am hooked on him as well now. I do my coloring with prisma pencils and the gamsol. I'm still trying to get that perfected, but am having so much fun trying.

Riley loves to Camp

I have seen so many cute "Riley" cards, I jumped on the bandwagon as well, and ordered me a couple. (Well, actually more like 8).. anyway.... I wanted to share the first card I made with him. Thank you Kittie747 for answering all my questions on masking. It will take some practice, but love this technique.
