Riley and Company Summer Fun Sneak Peek #1

Are you as excited as I am about the new release of Riley and Company Summer Fun stamps!!!   There are 8 stamps and 2 new sentiments so the Design Team is starting today and showing you projects on our blogs and on Thursday night we will have a Blog Hop and the new stamps will be available at the Riley and Company Store........Are you ready?????...  Here is My Window Box Riley:

I thought Riley might like to look out of his house window from under his striped awning to welcome you to the first Sneak Peek.  The Flower Box Riley is so fun and perfect for a House Warming card, welcome to your new home, welcome to the neighborhood or just Hello. 

The awning is a very special antique stamp I found in an Antique store in Kansas last summer when I was visiting my new granddaughter Leigha.  I added a blue picket fence using my MS fence punch and flower buttons for the flowers.  The Welcome sign was hand written on vellum and placed under a Tim Holtz fragment tag.  I thought it looked like a plaque you might find at my house.

The house siding was hand drawn and shaded with copic markers, then sponged with distress ink. 

My next card is a very simple card using one of the new sentiments, it speaks volumes to me being the coffee drinker I am...the rest of you might need the rest of the, I just need CAFFEINE and lots of it LOL...!

I say this is a simple card because the coffee pot/cups is a dp sheet from the K & Company Brenda Walton adhesive paper pad.  I added a pink striped SEI ally's wonderland dp I got on sale at Michaels for the background and center strip.  I added some vintage lace to the borders of the center strip and a Spellbinder fancy tag was cut in half and attached to the sides of the Sentiment.  Isn't this the funniest sentiment!!!

I hope you have enjoyed the first two of my Riley and Company Summer Fun Sneak peeks. 

Be sure you stop by the rest of the DT's blogs and see what they have created for your viewing pleasure.  Mark the blog hop on your calendar, we'd love to have you and you get a chance to win a new release stamp from each of the DT members blogs during the Blog Hop.

Have a great Monday, Thanks for stopping by.

I just love the sentiment. Will definitely have to have that for me and perhaps a surprise for my friends as well.
Loved your Awning! I wonder which antique store you found that stamp in. As I am a Kansan myself.
