Challenge #9 - Easter/ Spring Projects. Enter to win!


It's time for challenge #9, and this month, we'd like to see your Easter and/or spring projects! First, let's announce the winner of last month's flower challenge... and that was the randomly drawn #5, Andrea, with this very clever flower card:


Andrea used Raisin Boat set, Central Park. We love how she created each petal of the big flower and the center using the tree toppers in this set -- what fabulous, out-of-the-box (or should we say "out-of-the-tree") thinking!!
Central Park

Congratulations, Andrea, 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.



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

Get busy on those Easter and/or spring-themed cards and link it up below. If you are looking for a set to rent, check out the wonderful collection Raisin Boat has in stock here.


We look forward to your "Easter" and springy creations for this challenge! Did you see the wonderful Easter cards created by the Raisin Boat Crew Team designers? Check them out here.

Now, for a few more ideas...


This springy sample features Raisin Boat sets Chicken Coop,
Chicken Wire background, and Bunny Hop.




This sample features Spring Cakes, which includes different toppers
that can be stamped 
onto a separate cupcake wrapper or used alone.
Our
silk lime ribbon lies flat for mailing.



Use Bunny Hop to make a cute topper for our mini pails,
and fill with sweets for Easter!

White liquid applique makes a fluffy bunny behind in this card
featuring Spring Is in the Air!



New release this week at Raisin Boat - Birthday Brewing

Raisin Boat just released a new set called, "Birthday Brewing." It includes a tapper, stein and bottle along with clever phrases to send a birthday, get well or St. Paddy's Day message to those you know that enjoy an occasional beverage now and then.



We've got many ideas to share with you in our Idea  Gallery. Here's just a few to inspire you!

Remember the song, "99 bottles of beer on the wall..." We've all heard that one before. Why not send a few "notes" along with a cold one to someone celebrating a birthday?

Sometimes men are hard to make cards for, but this set helps share some fun and humor in a way that will make those men chuckle. The next card is perfect for someone that is sick. I used the set, "Goes with Hope Medical Gal" for the bandages and prescription sheet.

Don't forget to add a wet-look using our Pearl Pen - Magic Transparent or Glossy Accents. It's look like the bottle is cold and wet! I also love to use liquid applique for the beer foam. Here's a card using the stein and foam technique.

Birthday Brewing is now available at www.RaisinBoat.com. Get it today, just in time to make a few St. Paddy's Day cards, too! Smiles, Bobbi

Some-Bunny Loves You!

Our new Design Crew Team is gearing up with some awesome creations to share with you. Here's a few fun projects they've made that I wanted to share, just in time for Easter. These are fun projects you can make for some-bunny that loves you!

We'll be introducing our Design Team formally in our newsletter, but I just couldn't wait to give you a peek at their recent creations.

Crew Team member, Kendra Sand, used the medium pillow box to make this cute bunny package using stamp set, Bunny Hop. She used the egg in the set to make the pattern belly band for the package. Add candies or a gift card inside the box for those you love!

For a complete list of products used, visit our Idea Gallery
at www.RaisinBoat.com.


Crew Team member, Katherine Schmitt, had the same idea using our small pillow box and stamp set Bunny Hop. Cute for daycare, school and office, make the little ones and share the love to more!

at www.RaisinBoat.com.


Linda Lapotka, Crew Team Designer, used the same bunny from Bunny Hop and colored it brown to make a card with jelly beans, all shiny with Glossy Accents. She added an Action Wobble Spring to the back to make this bunny move! The springs are available in 10 and 25 packs (save more with the bigger package!)

at www.RaisinBoat.com.


Crew Team Designer, Allison McCutcheon used Tree's Company to make this next card for Easter. Its quirky and whimsical approach is so cute! I love the idea of using a non-Easter set for Easter. (Challenge yourself! I did and I'll share mine creations later this week.)
