I really like this new set, Strength & Hope. It's a set that will be in the 2011 Summer Mini Catalog that begins on May 1st. I actually used all of the stamps in the set on this card. Not only is this stamp set beautiful, it benefits Breast Cancer Research. For each set sold during May 1st - August 31, Stampin' Up! will donate $2 to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. I'm sure a lot of money will be raised.
I also used some new designer paper. It's called Paisley Petals DSP, and it's going to be available in the 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog coming out July 1st. I do have good news, though. Stampin' Up! is making it available to purchase during the month of April. There is also a stamp set, Four Frames, that will be offered for April. I hope to have a project to show you using this set very soon. When you place a $20 (before shipping & tax) order in April, you can order the stamp set and the paper. If you host a $350 workshop (before shipping & tax) during April, you get both the stamp set and the paper free!
