I really like the Free as a Bird set, and so had to have a stern talk with myself about the practicality of buying EVERY set that Raisin Boat sends me. Once I made up my mind that I would not be buying it, I was motivated to get stamping, i.e. to use the set as much as I could while I had it.
The little heart stamp, which is not part of the Free as a Bird set, was borrowed from Growing Love. Silver Dazzles add a touch of class.
Cards 2 and 3:
The decorative Elegant Eggplant panel is embossed with a Feathers embossing folder. The two cards are essentially the same, with the only difference being that one is on a textured cardstock base. The Dazzles once again add a lot to the cards.
This simple card speaks for itself.

The next batch of Clean and Simple cards are identical except for the colors of the card bases. My first one was on Crumb Cake:
On Baja Breeze:
and the full set:
It was hard to mail Free as a Bird back because it's such a pretty set, but I reminded myself that if I want to use the set again, it's easy enough to put it on my Pick List or to buy it.
In my next blog post I'll be featuring one more set of Raisin Boat cards before I shift back to Stampin' Up! stamps. I'd be interested to hear what my readers think about Raisin Boat and the stamp rental idea! Any comments would be appreciated!
As for me, it's time for some stamping therapy!
