Be charitable: Last Chance to buy the Strength and Hope Stampset!!

All year Stampin' Up! has been selling the beautifully elegant 'Strength and Hope' stampset:

For every stampset sold Stampin' Up! will give £2 to 'The Breast Cancer Research Foundation'!! This stampset will sadly be retiring at the end of September (I'm sure Stampin' Up! will support another well deserving chairty for 2011-12 - watch this space for details.)

So why not put in an order for this beautiful stampset before its too late and you could make lovely projects like this 'Pillow Box':

The 'Pillow Box' has been created from some 'Bashful Blue' cardstock, which has been run through my 'Big Shot' using the 'Pillow Box Die'. Next i cut out a strip of 'Baja Breeze' cardstock, which i ran through the 'Big Shot' using the 'Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder' and then wrapped it around the 'Pillow Box' securing it in place with some 'Red Sticky Tape'. I punched out a 'Scallop Circle' from some 'Bashful Blue' and a '1-3/8" Circle' From 'Baja Breeze' and then stamped (in 'Bashful Blue') the butterfly from the 'Strength and Hope' set on 'Very Vanilla' card, carefully cut it out and layered it onto the punched shapes, raising it with a Stampin' Up! dimensional. Finally i placed a couple of 'Basic Rhinestones' on the centre of the butterfly!

Keep checking this blog - i have at least one more project this month that uses this stampset - i'm sure you will agree this stampset is a must have!!!
