A few days ago, Sara Douglass, Stampin’ Up! CEO and several Stampin’ Up! employees went live on Facebook and made some cards. Each card was inspired by the people of Ukraine, adopting the colours of their flag or featuring their national flower. Together we have so far raised over 10K for Lifting Hands International – a grassroots, humanitarian, nonprofit movement dedicated to providing clear and meaningful ways to help refugees, both at home and abroad. Read about the emergency aid Lifting Hands is providing for the people of Ukraine HERE.
Here’s what Sara had to say :
“Thank you so much to everyone that joined in Making A Difference for Ukraine! We’ve surpassed $10,000 USD in donations for Lifting Hands International and the donate button is still available on the video replay, as well as on this post. It’s so amazing when our community comes together to care about people first. If you missed the LIVE fundraiser, you can still watch the video here on my page and donate to contribute to Lifting Hands International’s humanitarian efforts in Ukraine. If you’d like to recreate the cards from the event, you can find the recipes here: https://su-media.s3.amazonaws.com/…/Ukraine…“

Here’s another close-up of my card :
I’ve used the retiring Blossoms in Bloom Bundle…..which is actually cheaper if you order the stamps and dies separately right now during the Last Chance Products Sale – Blossoms in Bloom Stampset is 40% off (NOW just $22.80) and the Many Layered Blossoms Dies are also 40% off (NOW just $46.80) – that’s a total of $69.60 as opposed to $104.25 with the 10% off Bundle – available only while supplies last!
