Today’s video is a bit special….it’s a SURPRISE bloghop! A group of us got together to share the Courage stamp set released earlier this year as a fundraiser for BCRF – and it’s a surprise to Ellen! The cause is near and dear to hear heart, and we all hope that if you haven’t purchased the stamp-and-die set, you’ll hop over and do that. Note: in this post I am ONLY linking to the stamp set, and without an affiliate link …. I want all the funds to go to breast cancer research!

I got out my airbrush for my card today….But even if you aren’t an airbrusher, you can possibly achieve something similar with Picked Raspberry distress inking and emboss over that – just be sure it’s good and dry before embossing (and use a de-static tool).

Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

This whole thing was a bit of a surprise even to me – I wasn’t at all sure what would happen. Or if I’d try re-airbrushing on top. But I’m super pleased with the result!

  • 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
