Riley MermaidDiver wm

Hi everyone!

This month we have 15 new Riley images and a Travel Sticker Accessory set all with a vacation theme. All are NOW available from the Riley and Company Store.

All orders placed within the first 24 hours will receive a FREE Swimmer Riley!
Purchase the entire set - get a FREE Surfer Riley!

For my first card today I decided to use Mermaid Sophie and Scuba Riley, those two stamps work so well together. I stamped both the images and them masked them so I could airbrush my water and sand.

For my second card today I decided to create a Suitcase card so I could use a number of the fun images from the Travel Sticker Accessory set. Aren’t they so darn cute! This set features countries including USA; London (England); Italy; Switzerland; China and Australia. I just love the Aussie with the kangaroo, actually for the Aussies out there, there are two Aussie themed stamps in this set.

  28. Frances,

    I loved all of your cards. The use of the back ground colors really tied the entire card together. The suit case card was amazing as was the summer fun, but "I think I made a moose stake" was my favorite, because I always get lost.
