Challenge #15 "Boo!"

Wow, summer is over and it's time to get your "Boo" on! Challenge #15 is all about Halloween. Show us your creative tricks and treats with a card, scrapbook page, gift, etc. that you make with a Halloween theme, and link it up below.

Now for the winner of Challenge #14! Anitra, #9, created this beautiful card using "Stunning Silhouettes":

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

For this Halloween challenge, use any stamp 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!

Be sure to check out all the wonderful Halloween stamp sets and examples in the Raisin Boat Gallery. Remember, you can either buy  OR rent Raisin Boat sets -- no guilt in using a set for just one project, such as this Halloween-themed challenge!

We look forward to your Halloween creations!
Now, a few ideas to get your spooktacular creativity going!
Linda Lapotka featured Haunting Potions, with a backdrop using Damask Elegance, to create this very spooky card! She cleverly made the bottle look dimensional by adding a coat of Glass Effect Gel Crystal Clear over the top.

Check out the variety of bottles and bags we have available to help you create
a fun creepy-crawly treat! The tag was made with Halloween All Around.
See all supplies used here.

We also have window tins that fit Hershey Nuggets perfectly! Create matching wrappers by stamping on self-adhesive printer labels, like Melissa Craig did here featuring Sheet Happens - so cute, Melissa!

Another fun take on Sheet Happens by Kelly Pitzlin - we love it, Kelly! Add real stitches
on your card OR use our wonderful black LePen to draw in stitch-like detailing!

Kelly Pitzlin also created this adorable card with Wrap Party and Eerie Night --
Note the googly eyes in the punch bowl! :-)

No one begs for treats better than this cute little canine!
Check out all of our Canines in Costume.

There's more scaredy-dogs in our Howl-ween Hounds set --
featured here along with the mood-setting background elements from Fright Night.

Linda Lapotka brought to life a creative new kind of Frankenstein, using our Halloween All Around set and a green candy-filled pillow box! Thanks for introducing "Frank" to us, Linda!

 If you're looking for just the right words and fonts to express how scary Halloween is
on your projects, you'll love our Scary Voices set! Create boo-tiful patterned paper with the words in the set!

More new sets for our Florals Section

Raisin Boat is adding new sets in our Florals product category. Don't miss out. Check these sets out today!

 Courage in Bloom offers a large solid flower and coordinating junior size flower as well as artsy scrolls, leaves and scripted words to offer hope and encouragement.

Wonderful Day includes a lovely bird bath, various birds and florals to create stunning outdoor garden scenes. If you like a realistic-looking set and bird watching, this one is for you!

"You are My Sunshine" will absolutely bring sunshine to your projects with its bold flowers and and whimsical accent pieces. This one is so fun to color using our BoatHouse(TM) Collection Fresh Picks Copic set colors. 

To go along with the florals, Raisin Boat also released this lovely scripted word set, "All the Write Words." We love this set because the size of the words are large enough to be the focal point or accent piece.
