Good Luck Riley for Neglected Rubber Swap

This card was made for April in our SOTC—Sisterhood of the Traveling Cards—Neglected Rubber Swap.  There are many of us who have stamps that have not seen ink at all or in a long time (note—yes, if you are reading this, it applies to you too!)   So, we each sent someone in our group a stamp or two or three that we have not used in a bit and the recipient was to make a card with that stamp and send that card back along with the stamp.  April sent me three awesome Riley’s to chose from, so I decided to make her a St. Patrick’s Day card!

Image/Sentiment—Good Luck Riley Hanna Stamps; Stampin’ Up So Happy for You

Cardstock—PTI White; Stampin’ Up Garden Green; Reminisce Lucky Me Micro Clover

Ink—SU Garden Green

Accessories— Shamrock Brad; Copics; Green/White Ribbon



And, I must say it is great inspiration to ink up this Riley myself!


Love the dp! That riley sure is a cutie!


Too....too cute! I love the papers you used! :)


So, how cute is this??!! What a great idea too - to send some neglected rubber to each other, and then have it returned with a creation! Brilliant idea. Love the colors on this and the DP, your borders, the coloring of Riley - love all of it. You did a fantastic job with this, Barb.


this is such a cuteeee card Barb!!
Love your coloring and the fact that U used a 'mix' of greens in the background...your dp rocks too by the way!! Very cheery and perfectly executed!!:o)

Barb, this is adorable! Love that Riley, April should quit neglecting him... and wow! You rocked the coloring, papers, etc. Absolutely perfect!


What a cutie this is! I'm Irish, so I'm automatucally biased, hee hee! Super fun - you sure went all the way and set the bar high for those of us slackers that haven't done this yet *grin* x0x0

So cute. I don't have any stamps from this moose collection, I should, he is so cute. You are right Barb, there are so many stamps in my bookcase that didn't see ink in years!!!. One of my goals this year was to ink each one of them... we'll see!!!


Mmmm. I love Riley stamps!! Great card. Love all the green.
