2018 Stamping For Autism Awareness Blog Hop

IMG_8434

Hello, everyone! It’s Jenny here and if you just arrived from The Ton’s Blog, you are at the right place! I am so honored to be a participant of the 2018 Stamping For Autism Awareness Blog Hop. According to my quick Google search, about one in 68 U.S. children has an autism spectrum disorder (ASD). As we must do our best to embrace our uniqueness and differences among us, I think it’s crucial to understand ASD by educating ourselves and raising awareness. 

For this hop, I wanted to go with something very cheerful and uplifting in every way. Therefore, I chose our Daisy (Full View) Close Up Cling Background stamp along with a sentiment “You are amazing remember that” from the Pyrotechnics stamp set.

Here’s the card!

I started off stamping the Daisy (Full View) Close Up Cling Background image on a watercolor cardstock in Versamark ink. I heat embossed the image with white embossing powder and watercolored it with Ken Oliver’s Color Burst powders. Colors I used are: Peony, Orchid, Sap Green, and Kiwi Green. I went with wet-on-wet technique by pre wetting the area, dropping the pigment toward the center of the flower, and blending it out with the Aqua Brushes. I also used the Dark Brown Zig marker for the stamen of the flower. I let the panel air dry completely.

Next, I trimmed the panel down to 5.5″ square and rounded off all four corners with the Corner Chomper. I popped it up on a pink 5.75″ square cardbase with fun foam and moved on to the sentiment.

On a smooth white cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Pyrotechnics stamp set  “You are amazing. Remember that” in our Iris Blooms Dye ink. I die cut it out using the smallest Die from the Small Double Stitched Rectangle Dies and popped it up on the card using the dimensional foam tape. I embellished with Clear Dew Drops and Glass Slippers Sequins and the card was complete!


The Ton’s prize will be a $25 gift code to our shop (gift codes only apply to The Ton branded stamps, dies, gilding and inks only) and a stamp of choice from our collection. These are two separate prizes.
