My "Million Dollar" Stampin' Up! Set - Ribbon of Courage


I am so excited to be able to finally share this wonderful new stamp set with you!!  Today I am sharing the Ribbon of Courage set that I designed with designer Kathy Pitt when I visited Stampin' Up! in Dec. 2015 for my Million Dollar Achiever trip!! (see more about that trip HERE).  If you are a demonstrator, you have access to the catalog already and can find it on page 96 of the upcoming 2017-2018 Annual Catalog with the million dollar achiever symbol, and my name below the set.


Patty Bennett Ribbon of Courage Stampin' Up! stamp set - in honor of all cancer survivors - and for encouragement cards, fundraisers, and more! Available after 6/1/17.


This stamp set has a story, and I will be sharing it with you in more detail soon in a video.  I was honored to be asked to present the set and my samples at the Stampin' UP! San Diego OnStage event last weekend, but only had 8 minutes to share... and I truly wanted to share so much more with the audience, so I will redo my presentation with all the samples and share the extra backstory and more in my video.  Watch for it here soon on my blog!

For all of you expecting that I would have designed a flower set... the explanation of why it's not flowers will also be in my video. This set is dedicated to my mom and grandma who both fought the battle against breast cancer.  They are both angels in Heaven now, and I know they are smiling down on me and so happy and amazed at how my business has grown over the nearly 22 years I've been a demonstrator!

Below: THIS was an amazing experience.. at the end of the OnStage event, Stampin' Up! announced they were giving away the Ribbon of Courage stamp set to ALL ATTENDEES!!!!!  Oh my gosh.. everyone seemed SO excited!  Immediately a long line formed at our table and everyone asked me to sign their set!!  Never in a million years did I expect that.. it was thrilling and crazy all at the same time! I was honored, humbled and feel so blessed over the amazing reaction to my Ribbon of Courage set!!  So many demonstrators shared their cancer survivor stories with me that day.  I know this set will be a huge encouragement to so many people!!

And last but not least, I must share this special photo with you... My sister-in-law Tami (on the right) drove down to San Diego from Orange County just to see my presentation!  My brother was tied up with a tax appointment.. I missed him, but it was GREAT to have Tami there!   This photo of my upline, Sandy, with Tami and I is very special, because it was Tami who attended a Stampin' UP! party hosted by Sandy about 25 years ago, then mailed me the Stampin' Up! catalog and said, "you might be interested in this!"  :)   OH MY>>> that was the start of a 25 year relationship with Sandy and Stampin' Up!  I was a customer for about 3 years before joining as a demonstrator in 1995!!  Thank goodness Sandy had her contact info on the back of the catalog!!!

Hope you enjoyed that little (ok long) story with the sneak peek of the Ribbon of Courage set!!  I promise to share all the samples and a video very soon!!!

What a gorgeous stamp set Patty! I think that it is going to be a huge seller, because so many different causes use the ribbon as a symbol of hope. And it looks like there are still some florals incorporated through the doodles within the ribbon and heart image - so you got both :) So excited for you - what an amazing accomplishment!! It will be so fun for you to see all the projects people design using your stamp set over the coming year :)

Phyllis Werner

Patty, what an amazing stamp set. Such an exciting time for you. Looking forward to the new catalog.

Letha Kay

Love the stamp and story! Congratulations on being a celebrity :)

It's a beautiful stamp set Patty, and knowing the reason behind it makes it even more special. I have a very close friend who just commenced breast cancer treatment, so I will be buying this for sure. Your Mum and Grandmother would be proud for sure of your amazing achievements. Congratulations again!

Tonya Denton

Your stamp set is definitely on my wish list!! I love it! My beautiful mom died from Ovarian Cancer Christmas Eve 2014. It's so sad that so many have been affected by cancer. Thank you for designing such an awesome stamp set that can be used for fund raisers!! God Bless Patty!

Congratulations to you!! Must be so exciting ! It is one of the sets that caught my eye going through the catalog. Beautiful!

Teresa Harper

Patty, I love this stamp set! Thanks so much for inspiring us with it. It is definitely one of the first ones for my list. My mom has fought breast cancer. Fortunately, she is in remission and for that I am truly thankful. I lost my brother and sister-in-law to cancer, so I know a little of the heartbreak that brings. I can't imagine how it must feel to lose my mom. Thanks again!

Mary Beth Krakowski

Congratulations Patty! I love you blog posts and think you do a wonderful job. The set is lovely and is on my wish list.

Donna Kish

Patty - Congratulations on being able to design your own stamp set. Your Mother and Grandmother would be so very proud of you and for what you created!

Can't wait to get my set and then keep it forever since it was designed by someone I've actually met! Wooo hooo!

Keep inspiring us!

Good afternoon Patty,,,, I LOVE this set.... It will be on my very first order.....What a wonderful tribute to your mom and grandmother and everyone else that has this horrible disease. I have a good friend with stage 4 cancer right now and I know it's going to take her home and I had a wonderful friend, that her husband died of cancer when my mom died. I'm SO VERY PROUD OF YOU..... You are an ANGEL honey. Have a HAPPY EASTER and a great weekend.

Jan Hoyt


Thank you for sharing the heartwarming story of your special ribbon stamp set....I know it will be an extremely popular set for many years because of the message it send. I was in the audience in San Diego and we were all touched by your story....you did a great job sharing, not sure how you managed to avoid crying while telling it! We were getting a little teary eyed out in the audience just listening to it.

I live in central FL but because my UL lives in North County San Diego and I had FF miles to cash in with SWA, I was able to make the trip to my old stomping grounds in San Diego and it's as beautiful as ever...but has a lot more freeway lanes and commuter traffic than I remember! Guess that is true everywhere.

Thanks for sharing your beautiful story online as well as the many other beautiful and inspiring things you share on your blog year round! You are more than an inspiration to all of us.


Congrats Patty! Thanks for sharing your experience with us. How wonderful that your stamp set can touch the lives of so many!

Maria Willis

Congratulations Patty! I was lucky enough to get to see you present Ribbon of Courage in San Diego but enjoyed getting to hear about it again. Congrats on your $1.2+ million in sales and recent promotion. I'm so lucky to have a signed copy of your amazing stamp set already and I can't wait to get creating with it!
