Raisin Boat: Painted Peace with Deborah

I really enjoyed working with Painted Pace. So many cute stamps are in the set. I could not wait to add them to this layout of me with my puppy and her brother which belonged to my roommate :)

The Stamp Set:



Raisin Boat: Forever Love with Jen

Just had a blast making this card! The large floral element just seems so elegant so with this set I made this black and white card with a pop of fuchia ribbon and stickles to add some bling.

Raisin Boat: Lawn King with Michelle

I stamped on a cardstock using Staz-on Black. Fussy cut the lawn mower out. Red Stickles on the engine and parts.

The Stamp Set:


Raisin Boat: Formal Phrases with Silvana

I did this card with a template that a friend shared, and because of the shape it didn't have too much space to write something, so this FOR YOU stamp is perfect.

Raisin Boat: Hey, Cupcake,Live, Love Laugh with Jen

Just thought of happy when I saw this flower stamp and so I stamped the flourishes and then doodled around them to give them more whimsy and then stamped the flowers on pink paper and cut them out and adhered them to the page.

Here are the stamp sets:





Raisin Boat: Breezy Butterflies with Deborah

I decided when I saw the Breezy Butterflies stamps I would have to make a card set. I then challenged myself to only use 3 sheets of 8.5x11 paper for fun! So the cards came together nicely and are in several sizes. I stamped each and added glitter and a white gel pen...perfect combo of butterflies and bling :)

Raisin Boat: Going in Circles,Talking in Circles with Heather

Here are the stamp sets:






Raisin Boat: Distressed with Darlene

Raisin Boat's Distressed background stamp was so fun to play with! I love the look of distressed papers, but I hardly find that pattern in stores, with this stamp, I recreated the distressed look on my background with some Glimmer Mists and some random patterns!

Raisin Boat: No Limits with Michelle

Stamped the thermometer on white cardstock and cut out. Colored in the red with a glitter gel pen.

Here is the stamp set:



Raisin Boat: Full Circle with Doreen

I used the "Full Circle" background stamp to help spruce up my cheap 25cent piece of patterned paper. I love the way the stamping doesn't go all the way to the ends of the paper! I also love the way the circles of the stamp mimic the circles on the paper making it look like it came that way!

Raisin Boat: Perfect Pears with Darlene

Just some scrap lace, pearl luster paper, and some sweet anniversary or wedding themed Perfect Pear stamps will give your next card recipient a smile! :)

Here is the stamp set:


Raisin Boat: By the Beach with Deborah

As I created this picture to sit in my scrapbook room, all I could think about was how much I am longing to be near the ocean. Until that day gets here I will just keep staring at this, lol! I have to say that one of my favorite things about this awesome stamp set was the sand!!! Isn't it adorable? I used water color pencils on the lighthouse after it was stamped :)

Happy Summer!

Raisin Boat: A Dog's Life, Hey Cupcake with Doreen

When I saw the "A Dog's Life" stamps, I knew I had to play w/ them! My favorite stamp is the sleeping dog stamp because I know I'll get a lot of use out of it since my poor little old fur baby sleeps alot! The "sleeping dog" stamp you see is actually 3 stamps from the set: 1 = dog sleeping on the dogbed 2= dream bubble 3 = dog bone. I also used the banner stamp from the "Hey Cupcake" stamp set. It doesn't really go w/ the dog theme of my layout, but I have always wanted to try using banners since it's such a craze right now, so I figured it might be a cute way to spruce up my layout. Love that the stamp is reusable so I can make as many banners as I want and never run out!


Here are the stamp sets:




Raisin Boat: For the Birds with Michelle

Here is the stamp set:


Black Cardstock stamped with White Pigment ink, Feathers used Liquid Appliqué and heat gun to puff up. Gold brush pen for legs and beak color and pearl Stickles neck and head.

Raisin Boat: Distressed with Darlene

My girl is a sassy thing if I’ve ever seen one! She sure knows how to work her smarts and wit to get what she wants all right! Oh, what will I do with her as a teen? ::shakes head:: None the less, I am enjoying her as my sweet, cute, and lovable daughter at all of her stages. :))

I decided that this photo of Ally was so adorable that it demanded a layout of its own. :) She reminded me of a little rock star so I ran with that theme in this Raisin Boat background Distressed stamp (made with black and dark pink mists as the ink) and used many rub-ons (some from Glitz and Jenni Bowlin) in this layout on the star, border, title, and even some on the photo (which I thought looked like a neat chest tattoo. HAHA!). She does, after all, really ROCK! :)

Here is the stamp:



Raisin Boat: Hey Cupcake with Jen

Let me tell you how much fun I had using this Raisin Boat Hey Cupcake stamp set!!!I used the cupcakes on my baby daughters birthday banner and her birthday hat. I just simply stamped on patterned and solid paper and cut the cupcakes out and added it to the banner and hat I decorated. Tfl!

Here is the stamp set:

Raisin Boat: Highly Confidential with Deborah

See that cute little "Approved" stamp? I can just see it now sitting on an old timey desk and in walks the husband and I stamp him lol!!!

Here is the stamp set:



Raisin Boat: Breezy Butterflies/Formal Phrases with Silvana

For this card I chose orange, green and beige colors and stamped the butterfly from the Breezy Butterflies set to match my papers and the thinking of you phrase from the Formal Phrases set to add a sentiment. Love this butterfly!!!! The set comes with a base same shape butterfly which I used with orange ink and for the top I uses black ink and some orange pearls.
