Before you go score on this amazing sale, let me share a project that I made....

Now, I don't just love RB stamps - I LOVE LOVE love the card stock.  The quality of the Boathouse Collection card stock is amazing!


I found a tutorial on You Tube for this beautiful wreath.  Using a punch I picked up at Michael's over the weekend, I punched out snowflakes using Brighton Beach White and Varsity Blue card stock.  I cut a 3-3 1/2" circle and about a 2" circle in the center to create the base.  I glued down the first layer of snowflakes in white and then added the blue on the front and back.  Then added another layer of white snowflakes to the front.  Then I went totally bling-y.  I added rhinestones and then used Glitter Liner (Holo Iridscent) pen to add more sparkle.  Added ribbon that I had in my stash that matched the Varsity Blue perfectly.  But you don't need to worry, Raisin Boat has ribbon in stock at very reasonable prices.  Then I took a scrap of silver ribbon and stamped the greeting on it to make a banner.  When stamping on ribbon, you want to use StazOn, it's the only ink that won't bleed and smear your words.


Here's the tutorial that followed.  Now let me wish you HAPPY SHOPPING!

Supplies
Stamps: No Loss for Words
Ink: Jet Black (Staz-On)

How gorgeous! I love this idea...I wonder if I have enough time to make these for my sister's ornaments for the year? Maybe I can enlist the kids for the punching :)
