Raisin Boat will keep you afloat…

…in stamps, that is!  Here’s my Raisin Boat Review.

Ok, I know that ya’ll are think’n.  She’s out of her mind.  She’s a Stampin’ Up! independent demonstrator and she’s reviewing stamps from another company?  What gives?

Well, any crafter will tell you, there is too much good stuff out there, so you can’t stick with just one brand.

Yes I LOVE my Stampin’ Up! products and I love the company, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t recognize that there are other great crafting and stamping/craft products and brands.    This company is so unique that I HAD TO SHARE!

I was provided with a number of sets of stamps, along with a 3-month subscriptions.  I have had soooooooo much fun with them, and I can tell you that my experience has been fantastic. My rental stamps arrive in a happy white envelope.  Inside are the sets of stamps that I’ve placed on my Pick List,along with a stamped addressed envelope, to return the stamps in, when I’m ready to return them.  “So, what happens if I fall in love with the stamps and want to keep them?”, you ask.  Just head on over to Raisin Boat, log in, then go to your pick list and at the very top of the list, will be the most recent sets that you’ve received.  To the right of each of those sets, there is an option to purchase…just click on that , and Bob’s your uncle, you’ll be billed for the sets – at 20% off the purchase price!

I wanted to show you a few of the cards that I’ve made using the stamps that I’ve received.  This is going to be this year’s BD card for one of my son’s – in – law.

Is this not adorable?  I learned the technique when I purchased a tutorial (by the owners of Raisin Boat) on “food stamping”.

LOL – of course I would take a course that had to do with FOOD!

Here are a couple more.
