Cards for a Cure

Hello Stampers

Stampin' Up! love giving back to the Community which is another big reason why I love being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator :)   Not only because of the highest quality and beautiful stamp sets and accessories that help me bring out my creativity but also because they donate to two very worthy causes here in Australia.

One is the National Breast Cancer Fund (NBCF) and this is very close to my heart as I am sure everyone of you out there has either a family member or friend who has been affected by this disease.  I certainly have and to help with further research to eliminate Breast Cancer is a big one for me.  So Stampin' Up! will donate $10.00 to the NBCF for every "Ready, Set, Send" Kit sold.  This "Ready, Set, Send" Kit features hand made cards and includes five thank you cards, five birthday cards and 10 envelopes.  So easy peasy anyone can  make them.

Item # 133384

You can buy the kit through my website shop here for just $19.00

The other wonderful cause that Stampin' Up! support is the Ronald McDonald House Program. Stampin' Up! partners with Ronald McDonald House Charities® (RMHC) to bring comfort and creativity to the lives of Ronald McDonald House guests. For every "Flamingo Lingo" Stamp Set sold  SU will donate $3.00 to the RMHC in the State of purchase.  So for every stamp set I sell $3.00 will go to the Brisbane Ronald McDonald Houses.

The Flamingo Lingo Stamp Set comes in both wood (# 134303) and Clear Mount ( # 134306)
Check them out here at my Website store.

Happy Stamping

The Many uses for Silver and Gold Baker's Twine.

Hello Stampers

Are you in two minds about the new Metallic Silver and Gold Baker's Twine???

Silver Baker's Twine Silver # 132976      Gold Baker's TwineGold # 132975

I was too when it first came out and have used them both as they come,  but you can also take the strands apart very easily and use the 2 components separately.  Here I have made a card for a friend's daughter's birthday coming up this week.  I added a Stampin' Dimensional to the back of the elegant butterfly and attached a length of the silver thread randomly behind then attached it to the card.

Cardstock:  Crumb Cake
Stamp Sets:  Kinda Eclectic #135347 W & 135350 C; Four You # 130535 W & 130538 C
Accessories:  Lullaby Designer Series Paper # 133695; Fancy Foil Designer Vellum Silver # 133364; Elegant Butterfly Punch # 127526; Bitty Butterfly Punch 
# 129406; Stampin' Dimensionals # 104430; Glue Dots # 103683;  Rhinestone Basic Jewels # 119246 and the silver thread from the Silver Metallic Baker's Twine # 132976.

Happy creating
