Advantage of age

Tia's TRIO's- A little something new here on my blog. To celebrate all the work that I am designing for Riley and Company, I will be introducing TRIO's. Showcasing the three designs created for each Riley Funny Bone that has been newly released!

This TRIO features the following Funny Bone now available in the Riley (the Moose) and Friends store.

Card #1-My absolute favorite!!! And was so much work!

  • Card Outside

  • Card Inside

Yes, I am that old that I remember the Village People! And who doesn't love the song YMCA?

Card Front: I used Police Moose and Car Riley. I masked Police Moose, so he would appear 'in-front' of Car Riley and pulling him over. I had drew the street, sidewalk and then stamped a tree in the background. I stamped the Funny Bone in red to carry your eye from the words to the car and cut it into thirds.

Card Inside: I used the Basic Dress Up Riley stamp and added clothes from the following Dress Up sets: Motorcycle Dress Up/ Professional Dress Up/ Cowboy Dress Up (Coming In Oct.).

I used the Banners and Accents Cut-Ups for the word bubble.

Card #2 Get Your scare on

  • Card Outside

  • Card Inside

Image is Mummy Riley Halloween is HUGE at Riley and Company! So many great stamps, I really went all out with them on this release so keep coming back to see more TRIOS!

The background is hem-tape! Picked it up at JoAnn Fabrics! Used my heat gun to set it to the paper. Loved how it would shrink and tear, it really helped to "age" it! Be careful! Too much heat will dissolve the tape to the paper. Just use little bursts and press with your fingers.

The card inside was cut with the new Cut-Up Corner Spider Web. I used a piece of mulberry paper. I used liquid glue to adhere it and when it dried it was still translucent to the black paper underneath-LOL! Happy accident, love depth and texture it gave it!

Card #3 Well Hello AARP!

**Team Riley got over excited and sent me an image that will not be released until October-But I have permission to give you this early peek.**

  • Card Outside

  • Card Inside

I used Wink of Stella for the letters. Just had a blast coloring this image! If you like it, remember to keep your eyes on the look out for it in the store in October.

Thanks for following along! I'm excited for this new TRIO journey! This was a really big release for Riley and Company! I was assigned five of the new Funny Bone sentiments, so make sure you come back to see the TRIO I create from them.

You will also see the Veggie Lane card I made!

You can purchase the entire release right now in the shop in discounted bundles-until September 3rd.
