I love Riley, this adorable moose originally created by Hannah Stamps. Riley is now created (and sold) by Riley & Company.
Riley does everything — he drives, swims, plays Santa and more. I have dozens of Riley stamps and I always want more.
This week on Riley’s blog, there is a challenge to create a project using Riley in Love. And, on the iCopic blog, there is a challenge to use a heart on your creation. So, I decided to combine the two and I came up with this:
This is one of my favorite Riley stamps because a friend gave it to me.
Since I planned to give this card to my husband, I wanted to make it extra special, so I combined several techniques.
I used one of the Tim Holtz/Sizzix texture folders to emboss the red cardstock. Then, I used Fired Brick Distress Ink to highlight the texture.
I stamped Riley on X-Press It Blending Card with Memento Ink and colored him in with Copic Sketch Markers. Then, I matted both the textured background and Riley in black cardstock.
Next, I used Art Glitter Designer Dries Clear Adhesive to attach black ric-rac ribbon and some pleated black ribbon from Maya Road to the front of the card. Then, with the Tiny Attacher, I stapled on this awesome beaded ribbon I found at Hobby Lobby.
Since the staples really stood out, I colored them with N9, which helps disguise them in the ribbon.
I cut the heart out of red cardstock with a Lifestyle Crafts die and stamped I Love You on it. I used Pop Dots to attach it.
Finally, I covered the heart in Rock Candy Distress Stickles and the card and center of the flower in Fired Brick Distress Stickles.
Here are the supplies I used …
My husband loved the card … what do you think?
