Challenge #26 Happy Birthday

Summer is all about celebrating! The entries in last month's challenge were so creative. You can check out all the entries by clicking on each person's name. What a great way to get inspired!

The winner for Challenge #25: Summertime was #10, Amy Marshall, with this  adorable card:

Amy used Raisin Boat set Off to Party to create a clever summer card complete with sand, sun and fun! See the "Wash me" message in the window from all the sand? :-)

Congratulations, Amy, you you will receive a free Raisin Boat stamp set of your choice! Please email with the name and item number of your set selection, as well as 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.)

Thank you to everyone who joined the challenge. We hope you will continue to share your wonderful creations with us!

Now on to Challenge #26... It's that time of year between "Summer Celebrations" and "The Holidays," which makes it a great time to stock up on birthday cards. With so many birthdays to celebrate all year, wouldn't it be nice to have a pile of hand-made cards ready whenever you need one?

Well, here's a chance to do just that and maybe win a FREE stamp set of your choice! You can enter as often as you like. 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!

Remember you can rent or buy sets from Raisin Boat. No guilt in using a set for just one project, such as a challenge. We look forward to seeing your creations!

Here are the upcoming challenges for 2014 to help you get the perfect sets into your rental Pick List:
August: Birthday
September: Halloween
October: Thankful
November: Christmas

This challenge will close on the 12th of September.

Here are some creations from the Idea Gallery to get you started:

One of our most beloved birthday-themed sets is Wish Big, featured in this colorful sample. The candles can be colored in or two-step-stamped with solid or designed fills. See supplies here.

Birthdays are for monkeying around! The backdrop for this card was created with the Birch embossing folder and ink refills (watch our tutorial video here). See supplies here.

What would a birthday be without cake? Our Fill With Cake set offers plates you can dress up with various patterns and sayings. See supplies here.

This birthday card would also be cute for a girls' sleepover party invitation -- promising pancakes for breakfast! :-) Add "syrup" with Pearl Pen Magic Transparent and a dollop of whipped cream with white liquid applique. See supplies here.

Whatever your recipient's astrological sign, you can customize his or her card with images from What's Your Sign?See supplies here.

A little humor for the guys! Don't Blow It and Icing on the Cake come together for this masculine greeting. See supplies here.
