Strength & Hope Butterfly Card – Let’s Fight Breast Cancer!

This past weekend I held a workshop and my make-and-take was a card I saw in the May issue of SUCCESS.  SUCCESS is a magazine for Stampin’ Up! demonstrators and is a valuable tool to helping us with our business.   I used the colors and punches I own to create the card.  My customers loved making it.  Plus it showcased the stamp set so well.  With each purchase of this stamp set Stampin’ Up! will donate $2 to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.  BCRF is dedicated to preventing breast cancer and finding a cure in our lifetime by funding clinical and translational research worldwide.

A tisket a tasket a Mother’s Day basket

This week we’re celebration mom at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  The challenge is to make any project – card, gift set, gift card holder, scrapbook page or any 3D project with mom in mind.  We’d love to see your creativity.

I’m so excited about my project this week because it is a sneak peek for the Strength & Hope Stamp set which donates $2 from every purchase of this set to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.  This set is so beautiful.  I also used the Four Frames set which is available through the end of April and it is a set that will next be available with new 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog.  I would love to see how you’re going to show mom how much you care.  I can’t wait to see your creation.

The basket is from a template I saw on Sassy Scrapper’s blog.  I embellished the basket with a rose I made using the Fancy Flower punch and the butterfly from the new Strength & Hope Stamp set which will be available on May 1st.  The card featured DSP from the Strength and Hope Digital Download.  If you’re wondering how I made the butterfly two-tone, I sponged the lighter color of Pear Pizzazz then Marina Mist on the outer edge, stamped then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  For great instructions on how to make the quilled rose.  Go to Tara Bilbao, she has a great instructional video on her blog on how to make them.
