Stampin’ Up!’s mission statement, called its Statement of the Heart, reads: “To love what we do and share what we love, as we help others enjoy creativity and worthwhile accomplishments . . . in this we make a difference.”
To help fulfil this statement, Stampin’ Up! launched Making a Difference program in 2003. This program facilitates corporate giving and promotes service among demonstrators and employees.
Through the Making a Difference program, Stampin’ Up! partnered with Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC). Each year, we design an exclusive stamp set to promote the partnership with RMHC and donate a portion of the proceeds from each sale of that set. To date, more than $95,000 has been donated from RMHC stamp set sales.
Stampin’ Up!’s demonstrators are also encouraged to volunteer their time teaching local Ronald McDonald House guests the creative art of rubber stamping through the Making a Difference program. Demonstrators also create cards at training events which are donated to Ronald McDonald Houses. Those staying at the Houses then use the cards to keep in touch with loved ones while they are away from home.
And this year is no different…except now there is a matching Tree Builder Punch that coordinate with RMHC stamp set “Sprinkles Of Life”.
Isn’t it awesome! First of all this stamp set consists of a whopping number of 22 stamps! Yep! You hear me. And it’s so versatile. You can create cupcakes, ice-creams, trees, flower pots, piles of leaves, clouds…and many, many more. With just one stamp set. Pretty amazing, right? So let me share my little make.
And truly, I won’t tell you how many techniques I’ve used on this single card: watercolouring, heat embossing, clear heat embossing on the stamped image, using glitter, sequins, washi tape… and I had tonnes of fun creating it!
It just looks yummy! Oh, and cherry on top?!
Cherry is made from an apple, water coloured and clear embossed to add a little bit of shine.
Hope you like my little project.
