Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Hiddleston and more celebrities design and sign cards for Coram with Stampin' Up!

Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Hiddleston and more celebrities design and sign cards for Coram with Stampin' Up!


And the charity auction Cards for Keeps is live! All money raised will be donated to Stampin' Up!'s chosen charity partner, Coram.

Stampin' Up! sent some of the UK’s leading stars of stage, screen, music, art, sport and more a selection of Stampin’ Up! goodies and asked them to let their imaginations run wild. The celebrities were given the freedom to create whatever they like and a wonderful variety of designs were received from some truly fabulous names:

Benedict Cumberbatch came up with a bird design and an inspirational quotes inside the card. Bidding is sure to be sky-high on this one.  Fans of Sherlock may cause a stampede!


Alison Steadman used only a suggestion of Stampin’ Up! materials. But the design reflects her individuality - and what a fantastic name to support the cause,


Tom Hiddleston of Thor fame produced a wonderful design featuring a heart - I am sure he has stolen plenty!


Axel Scheffler, the illustrator responsible for bringing the Gruffalo to life, no less, used Stampin' Up! paper and embellishments so cleverly, creating what will surely be one of the auction’s top sellers.

All money raised will be donated to Stampin' Up!'s chosen charity partner, Coram. Founded in 1739 Coram is the UK’s first-ever children’s charity. 2014 will mark the start of their 275th year of transforming children’s lives. Through services such as Adoption and Creative Therapies, Coram helps some of the UK’s most vulnerable children to feel safe and loved and have access to the education and opportunities in life all children need. 

Why not check out all the designs - you might even be tempted to buy a Cumberbatch or Brand masterpiece!
