As part of their Making a Difference program, Stampin' Up! is partnering with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation in the Strength & Hope Campaign by donating $2 from the proceeds of each "Strength & Hope" stamp set and/or digital kit.  These products will be available for purchase throughout the Summer Mini Catalog sales period (May 1 through August 31).  Since my sister is a 25-year survivor of breast cancer, any campaign that focuses on breast cancer research (and eventual cure) is near and dear to my heart.  Demonstrators are able to pre-order the Strength & Hope products, and I ordered the digital kit today.  All of the images on this card are from that kit, which includes a 4-piece stamp brush set, 12 designer papers, and 10 embellishment pieces.  After designing and printing my project from Stampin' Up!'s My Digital Studio software, I used the Scallop Edge Border punch along the bottom of the printed design, layered it onto Always Artichoke card stock, adhered a Whisper White punched strip from the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch to the bottom, converted one of the digital images into a circular tag (attached to the card with linen thread), and added rhinestone jewels to the butterfly antenna and the digital antique brad on the seam binding bow.  It seems kind of cruel to give a sneak peek of a product that's not yet available, but I think it's never too early to make plans to make a difference by supporting the Strength & Hope Campaign this May.
