Challenge #17 Christmas

The title says it all! Yes, Christmas is just around the corner... time to get out those decorations, baking supplies and card-making supplies. What?! You don't have any Christmas stamps -- or you don't want to keep using the same holiday set every year?!

Good news! You can rent your Christmas stamps from Raisin Boat! You will find over 25 holiday-themed sets -- from whimsical to elegant to graphic styles -- in the store. You can rent them and send them back, but if you fall in love with your set, you can put it on your Christmas list! Renters even get a 20% discount on any stamp set they buy!

For the challenge, make a Christmas card, set of tags, wrapping paper, treat, gift, or any other project and link it up below. You will be happy to have your holiday projects underway, and you'll also have a chance to win a free Raisin Boat set of your choice!

We have some inspiration below for this month's theme, but first we'd like to announce our winner from Challenge #16:
number 4, Heather Mills, with this adorable card:




Congratulations, Heather, you will receive a free Raisin Boat stamp set of your choice! Please email customerservice@raisinboat.com with the name of your set selection and your mailing address. (To view your stamp set options, go to www.RaisinBoat.com, click on the Products tab, and click on any category or the catalog link.)

Now for this month's challenge...  Use any set you have (you don't have to limit your entry to Raisin Boat stamps), but if you use a Raisin Boat stamp set, it will count as two entries. That gives you twice the chance to win a FREE stamp set of your choice! You can enter as often as you like.


Remember, you can either buy  OR rent Raisin Boat sets -- no guilt in using a set for just one project, such as a Christmas scrapbook page or cards, teacher gift, classroom treats, gift tags or any other project.


We look forward to seeing your Christmas creativity! 

Here are a few cards from the Idea Gallery to get you started:

Linda Lapotka created these fun tags using Tiki Hut and Bear Cub BoatHouse Collection cardstock and the stamp sets Nature's Reflections, Naughty or Nice, North Pole Toymakers and Dear Santa.


Try creating some treats with our selection of boxes, bottles, tins, and other alterables! The images and poem on this "snowman poop" are from Days Till Christmas.



You just saw snowman poop... now it's reindeer poop! :-)
Check out our fun Night Before Christmas set to decorate various treats (see various tubes/bottles here).



This is a beautiful and serene approach, with no coloring involved!
Let the white liquid qpplique do the "wow" work!


Invite a friend or your child for tag-making time! They're quick and easy, and you'll have a wonderful time creating all kinds of designs together! See all supplies used here.

 For all of you animal lovers out there, here's a holiday card idea featuring A Dog's Life and Let It SnowAdd a little sparkle to the bow and snow with our Stardust gelly roll pens.
