Just playing around...

Hi everyone!  Happy Saturday night.  It's been a busy day at my house.  Grocery shopping, cleaning, washing bed linens, etc.  You know that routine.  Anyway, after treating the kids to pizza for dinner I finally got a chance to play at my craft table.

I received my first shipment of stamps from Raisin Boat.  If you've not heard of Raisin Boat, this is a really cool company created by two mom's - Kim & Bobbi.  They created the Netflix of the stamping world.  It works a lot like Netflix but it's way more fun.  They have an exclusive line of stamps that are fantastic and a store stocked with card stocks, embellishments, papers, etc.  I can't wait to have more money so I can get some of their card stock - the colors are gorgeous!  Raisin Boat will be sponsoring Tuesday Morning Sketches in the very near future, but I am also trying like heck to be on their design team - so I wanted to play with the stamps to become Boat Crew worthy.

This is from a set called Imagine.  It's beautiful.  I combined my favorite colors (purple and olive green) with a great layout from Quirky Crafts Challenges.  I am super pleased with my card.

Card stock:  Neenah Classic Crest, Perfect Plum, Pale Plum
Paper:  Latte matstack (DCWV)
Stamps:  Imagine (Raisin Boat)
Ink:  Perfect Plum, Pale Plum, Mellow Moss
Tools:  Oval cutters (CM), Cuttlebug, Script embossing folder, 7/8" circle punch
Embellishments:  brads (SU!), satin ribbon, button (StampingScrapping dot com)
