Happy Thanksgiving from Raisin Boat!

It's fun to see the change of the seasons in the Midwest and with it comes a change in stamp sets at Raisin Boat! We have just released five new sets with the outdoorsman and hunter in mind.

Here's the first one, "Happy Thanksgiving." The set includes two turkeys, a pheasant, and one large pumpkin along with several nice phrases and thank you messages.

 
 
Here's a few projects I made with this one.
 
A simple tag is a nice addition to a hostess "thank you" gift for the one making the feast this season.
 
 
 

I made some cards, too.  For this next one, I used my Teal Zeal Memento ink to create the sky background. I had so much fun coloring pumpkins with this set. You can make them any color. Love that!

 
To help with the coloring, we created a new set of Copics that includes the colors I use over and over, especially on these cards. It's called Early Autumn and it complements our Rustic Pier tones well. Here's a link to them - Early Autumn.  These markers were used for this next card. Shading the pumpkins in C1, C3 and C5 really makes them jump off the page, too. Two of those markers are in our Skipping Stones marker collection.

I love the pheasant in this set, too. You can make it come alive with the coloring of the feathers. The Grassy Silhouette embossing folder was used for the background.

 
This last one uses all of the colors in the Early Autumn Copic collection. Love this warmth of this scene. It's so easy to do, too. I did "pop" the breast of the turkey to create a 3-D effect, too.


 
I hope you enjoyed these samples. Here's a link to all of them in our Idea Gallery. You can find all of the Copic colors and supplies I used to make these, if you are interested.
 
This set really puts me in the spirit of the holiday. I'm so thankful I get to do this for our business! Smiles, Bobbi
