Strength & Hope Campaign in new Summer Mini

I wanted to take a moment to let you know about an upcoming campaign and how you can help raise money for this worthy cause that has affected all of us in some way…and give you a sneek peek at a stamp set in the new Summer Mini.....


Campaign Dates: May 1-August 31, 2011
As part of our Making a Difference program, Stampin' Up! is proud to partner with The Breast Cancer Research Foundation in the Strength & Hope Campaign.
Throughout the 2011 Summer Mini Catalogue sales period, Stampin' Up! will donate $2* from the sale of each Strength & Hope set to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF).


Today’s card was made using a new set that is going to be in the new summer mini coming out very soon. It is called Strength and Hope.

The card base is Early Expresso, and I layered some DSP (retired Baja Breeze) on Baja Breeze card stock and place those layers on the card.
 I used a Nestabilities die.

I first stamped the flourish second generation ink on with Baja Breeze then sponged the outside with the die still on. I stamped the HOPE and embossed it with clear embossing powder from Stampin Up. 

I stamped and embossed the butterfly with white embossing powder and cut it out. Beautiful butterfly it is. I added some colored rhinestones to its body.
 I also added three pearls to finish it off.

Here's what I used: 

Stamps: Strength and Hope, Elements of Style 
Paper: Baja Breeze, Early Expresso, Whisper White 
Ink: Baja Breeze, Early Expresso 

Inky hugs til next time!
