This project has been a highly personal endeavor for Chaitali, Ellen and I because all three of our beloved mothers have battled breast cancer; Chaitali and Ellen’s mothers lost their battle.  I am very lucky that my own mama is currently a 3+ year survivor.  You can read our family’s story here:  My Amazing Mom

Because of our three amazing mothers, we teamed up to find a way that we could make a difference–to honor them and actively contribute to finding a cure for breast cancer. Together we created the Courage Stamp & Die Set.

$25 of the purchase price of each Courage Stamp & Die Set will be donated to

the Breast Cancer Research Foundation

We know that many of you are affected by this disease or other forms of cancer and we are turning to you for help. After much research our team made the decision to support the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.  BCRF is the highest rated breast cancer organization in the nation. To learn more about BCRF please visit their website at https://www.bcrfcure.org/

Through this fundraiser, it is our goal to educate and raise money for research and support services for patients and survivors battling breast cancer.  Research has led to incredible advancements in treatment and while there is no cure today, I believe research will find it and it is my hope that breast cancer will become something my daughter and her daughter will never have to contend with because we ended it, once and for all.

Will you join us?

Donate, stamp, share, create—there are many ways you can contribute!  Visit the Ellen Hutson BCRF fundraiser page to find out how and to follow our progress.  Together we can #BeTheEnd !
I so appreciate the designers joining us today and contributing their talents!


And, thank you for joining us in the battle against breast cancer–United we conquer!



  1. Just beautiful…soft!

  2. Your cards are beautiful, delicate and feminine. Those feelings are sometimes lost along the way of this disease.

  3. Thank you so much for your inspiration Julie and for all you’re doing for this cause. My co-worker’s Mom is going in for surgery tomorrow. Praying for her and for a cure.

  4. It is an honor to join with you in this fight to end breast cancer. I remember reading your post when your mother was diagnosed- I was so touched. This August will mark 27 years since my diagnosis, surgery, & treatment. We’ve come a long way since then, but there’s still work to be done.You, Ellen & Chaitali have done an amazing thing with your stamp set & campaign- I applaud you. I’m anxious for my set to arrive, so I can do my small part. Bless you, Julie.

    • Thank you so much for supporting our campaign, Pat. I am SO happy that you will celebrate 27 years as a survivor–that is so uplifting to me. If I were standing next to you, I’d have to wrap you up in a mondo squishy hug! XO!

  5. So touched by your video. My niece is a breast cancer survivor and the sentiments in this release are perfect. A wonderful release for such a worthy cause.

  6. Beautiful stamp set and cards. Great cause!

  7. Gorgeous cards Julie.

  8. I am breast cancer survivor. Thank you. Beautiful card!

  9. Love both of these cards, so pretty and the sentiments are great

  10. Beautiful stamp set Julie, and your video teared me up. Both my mom and my grandmother are breast cancer survivors (although I did lose my grandma in January). I’m pretty sure it’s in my genes, so this is a very important cause to me personally as well. Off to buy the stamps! Thank you for doing this. xoxo

    • ((((Libby)))) Thank you so much for your support! I’m so happy to know your mom and grandma survived it. I am hopeful that some day it will be something you and I and future generations never have a worry for. In the meantime, we battle and stay vigilant! XO!
