Strength and Courage

Hello Everyone and welcome to the JustRite Stampers Blog Hop!  Today we are showcasing the new Strength and Courage set.

JustRite Crafting For a Cause
In an effort to find an early diagnostic test or screening tool for Ovarian Cancer, JustRite Crafting For a Cause will donate 20% of the sales from Be Strong and Courage and Strength in 2011 to Ovarian Cancer Research. To learn more about the symptoms of this “silent killer “ visit

 These sets are close to our hearts as our sweet and extremely talented illustrator, Amy Tedder is a 6yr Ovarian Cancer Survivor!!!  Thankfully she insisted on having tests done and in so, found out early enough that she could be treated!!  So many of us have been, or know someone who has been affected by some form of Cancer and we celebrate those who have defeated it!  Not everyone is so lucky.  With your support, 20% of sales will go to Ovarian Cancer Research - let's find a way for early detection so that more women have a chance against this deadly disease!!  Although we are donating to Ovarian Cancer, these sets are versatile and can be used for any kind of Cancer support projects by simply changing the colour of the ribbon.

 My base is made of teal bazzill, white, chocolate chip and some MME Hattie DP.  Across this I've added more teal (punched with the MS Loop punch), chocolate chip and more Hattie DP.  Over this panel I've added some white crochet lace and some white satin ribbon that has been coloured with a BG13 Copic Marker.  I've stamped the border and centre from Strength and Courage twice, cut the centre out with scissors from one and popped it up over the second that I've coloured with a BG13 Copic and cut out with Large Oval Nestabilities.  This has been framed with more teal bazzill cut with Large Scallop Oval Nestabilities and then matted again with white cut with Labels 20 Nestabilities.  Next I've attached a bow (coloured with BG13), some silver cord and silver charm and topped with a white button, airbrushed with BG13.  Finally I finished with a few white pearls in the top corners.
