Raisin Boat Stamp - card and video

A few days ago I shared cards I made using a class taught my the ladies who run Raisin Boat stamps.  This was the first I'd heard of the company and their unique concept.  They let you rent stamps.  What a wonderful idea!  It is like Netflix.  You can sign up for a program - depending on how many sets you want per month.  You create a pick list of sets and they ship them out in order of what is on your list and availability.  When you are done, you return them in a self-addressed, postage paid envelope.  The next set(s) are shipped according to how many sets you get each month.

I'm trying it out and have my first two sets.  I think I signed up on a Tuesday and had the sets on Friday. Super fast!  The clear stamps are a very good quality, work well with Stampin' Up! and Distress Ink.  These are my first two cards.

Both were made with the Stunning Silhouettes set.  Many of their other sets are outline stamps to color.  I loved this one because I could do a lot of things with it. For the first card, I stamped and embossed.

For this card, I stamped and stamped off in two colors of purple - Elegant Eggplant and Wisteria Wonder:

Here is the video for the first card at YouTube:

My 2nd Raisin Boat set is an adorable Christmas one.  I'll have some cards up with it before the end of the month.

I won't have a scrapbook video this week.  I'll be back with one next week.  Hope you have a wonderful 4th of July holiday!


  1. Love the way you secured the ribbon with the twine. That's a really fast way to finish it off instead of tying a complete bow with the ribbon. Sometimes my bows just won't behave, so this is a handy technique, particularly for a rustic look. It would look great on a masculine card, too.

  2. These cards are fabulous! I like the twine idea too.

  3. Lovely cards! I think renting stamps sounds like a great idea.

  4. Renting stamps, huh? What a great idea! I love emboss resist. You did a wonderful job with it; I love that you went multi colour.
