UNITED WE CONQUER! Ellen Hutson BCRF Fundraiser

UNITED WE CONQUER! Ellen Hutson BCRF Fundraiser

In honor of their three amazing mothers, Chaitali, Julie and Ellen teamed up to find a way that they could make a difference and honor these very special women in their lives and actively contribute to finding a cure for breast cancer. Together they have created the Courage Stamp & Die Set. It’s soooo beautiful:

Many of you are affected by this disease or other forms of cancer and we are turning to you for help. After much research our team made the decision to support the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.  BCRF is the highest rated breast cancer organization in the nation. To learn more about BCRF please visit their website.

Through this fundraiser, it is our goal to educate and raise money for research and support services for patients and survivors battling breast cancer.  And I’m honored to join in this bloghop to celebrate and encourage these efforts!

Won’t you join us? Donate, stamp, share, create—there are many ways you can contribute!  Visit the Ellen Hutson BCRF fundraiser page to find out how and to follow our progress.

Together we can!

And now, on to MY project! I saw all the flowers – meant for layering – and knew others could do amazing cards with stamping and layering inks. But what could I do that would make this set “sing” in my own way? And as I pondered….I started seeing each one of the layer-able stamps as separate flowers…what would happen if I added to each one with a little bit of color to make them all totally different flowers? Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

A little something really special…

I hope this has given you another view of what you can do with this stamp set – so perhaps you’ll have more encouragement to buy it and help the cause. There are no giveaways for this hop, and I do know it likely means folks won’t be motivated to comment or share….so here’s what I’m going to do to encourage that:

For every comment on this post by Friday, AND for every pin of my card on Pinterest: I will donate $1.00 to BCRF. Get busy! Let’s raise some money!

Today, I’m only linking to the stamp and die set used on this card – and it’s not an affiliate link. All of the proceeds will go to the cause, not to anyone on this hop! So please do join in and pick up a set…then go share the card you have created using #BCRF #BCRFfundraiser #cancerresearch #BeTheEnd #essentialsbyellenbcrf

  26. Sandy,

    I have been motivated to comment on the other blogs because, like Ellen, Julie, Chailateli, and so many others, this is a cause near and dear to my heart.

    I love what you have done with the stamp set to show the versatility it has. And, of course, for you yellow is the best color you could have used to make a card that was sure to wow us! You do always seem to find a new way to show off stamps that I don’t see anyone else come up with.

    Thank you for making a difference! You are such an inspiration!

  27. Wow Sandy, way to go above and beyond in everything you do!!!

  28. (Just love to watch you color and draw- it’s very calligraphic.) Your generosity is one of your many gifts, Sandy. It is both a comfort and an inspiration. Bless you
