Bird Sond Pendant

Today I wanted to share with you the item that is actually my avatar! It is called my Bird Song Pendant. When I wanted to try my hand at more things for the store I thought of making pendants with some of the super cool designer papers that I have for stamping/scrapbooking. This started with a wooden heart that I picked up at a craft store, here is the result:

I was really happy with how this turned out. This first photo is a photo that made it to Craft Gawkers . The pendants I offer in my shop all start from a wooden base which I paint and add all the decorative touches. The top is a seal of a crystal lacquer which gives it dimension and shine.

Here are a few more photos:

My pendants come with a nice cord and can easily be replaced with your favorite chain.

Thanks for stopping by today for a little glimpse into my Etsy Shop!

Till later...

Butterflly Mosaic

Today I wanted to feature another greeting card from my shop called Butterfly Mosaic. I love the butterfly images, they are always so beautiful and elegant.

This piece is made using some fantastic stamps by Gina K. Designs. The background is a intricate paper pieced background. The different patterns you see were all hand cut out and then adhered to the design. The actual background design you see is a stamp which is very cool.

Here is my Butterfly Mosaic:

This sits on a black base for a card but I used white cardstock inside so you do have some nice writing space in a white color. All my cards otherwise are not stamped on the inside they are blank.

Here is a close up of the butterfly:

Well that's it for now.

Till later....

Greeting Cards

My main reason for starting my shop were my greeting cards. I have been rubber stamping/papercrafting for over 10 years now! So I thought it was time to start my store with my fun card creations.

I wanted to start sharing items that are listed in my store with you. Here is my Sleeping Bunny card:

This cute little bunny is indeed fuzzy in texture. I love to add texture and layers to all my cards. Check out his tail and ear, that is fun glitter which adds alot of glitz to the bunny. Gotta have some bling.

Here is a close up of this adorable bunny:

Stay tuned there will be lots more. As always I would love to hear from you feel free to leave me a comment or send me a convo via Etsy.

That's it for now.

Ria Creations on Etsy

Welcome to my blog for my Etsy store Ria Creations . I started this blog as a way to showcase some of my items and ideas about my Etsy store.

I started my shop about 5 months ago and have been loving making and adding things to it. It originally began where I wanted to share all the cards I make as well as some supplies I would like to see get new homes. Since that I have also added some fun gifts i.e. pendants (charms) for necklaces and fun magnets.

I am also very much involved in the papercrafting world and serve on a few design teams. I have a blog dedicated to that also called Ria Creations. This title I may have to slightly change so not to confuse anyone. But I would love for you to check it out, many items you will see me post there will end up in my shop. So if you visit and find something you think is worthy for the shop please let me know.

As always I would love to hear your thoughts and suggestions for my shop. Always trying to keep up with it and improve it anyway that I can.

Thanks for stopping by!

I hope that you will come back again soon!
