Hope everyone is having a great start to your Saturday!! I'm up this morning with a sneak peek at the second Riley that Hanna Stamps is releasing this coming Monday - May 4th. I hope this pic looks OK - it has been SO rainy and overcast all week - I've had to play around with some lighting to get decent pics of my cards and it's been terribly frustrating all week - I want my sunshine back!! And after making this card - I REALLY want my nice weather back so I can send hubby out to grill on the patio like Riley here is doing!! :) I stamped my Grill Riley first - masked him - then stamped the patio bricks from last summers's "Lazy Days" Hanna set. I colored in the bricks and then airbrushed the sky background. I used my rectangle nesties to create the frame around my image and the mat. I cut my red and white cardstock layers first to fit my card - then cut the centers out of them with my rectangle nesties. I cut my white frame before I stamped on it - the images stamped on it are from a couple of the new Studio G $1 stamps - I bought them especially to use with this Riley - hee hee...I think Riley's become an enabler - LOL!! Once I got all of my grill food images stamped on my frame - I colored them in with Copics then layered it onto my red mat. I used some screw brad by Spare Parts (HL) for accents at the corner. I also adhered the frame with foam squares to give my card some dimesion.
The new sets and Rileys will be available on Monday night - May 4th - after the release party over on SCS. The Hanna Stamps May release party is from 9-11 PM and it's always a blast!! There are lots of fun challenges, chatting, prizes, etc. in store - so be sure to swing by!! And be sure to pop in my fellow DT blogs for more awesome sneak peeks - as well as our 2 May guest designers - Nikki Fairbairn and Pam Varnell! Have a wonderful Saturday - thanks so much for stopping by!!
