autism awareness blog hop

I'm so happy to be joining with the Stamping For Autism Awareness Blog Hop! How cool is it that we can support awareness with our crafts?! And what a wonderful community we have!

Our lovely & amazing host Veronica suggested a theme for our cards today of feel good encouragement and I knew exactly the sets I wanted to use, Essentials by Ellen Totally Awesome and Positive Words. These are sets I keep coming back to over and over because everyone needs to hear how awesome they are! And in addition to the encouragement theme, we are painting the internet blue! Here's what I created...


To create my card, I used my MISTI to stamp "awesome" down the front in Distress Oxide Blueprint Sketch.

I colored many little Lawn Fawn Yetis before I settled on this one, foam mounting him on the card front.

For the sentiment, I used my Copic B000 to color a scratch strip of cardstock. Then I stamped the "you are". And to complete the sentiment, I layered one black "awesome" word die cut over 4 white ones.

Does anyone else do this? When I choose a image, I stamp it bunches of times so I can have "practice shots" for the coloring. And I still need lots of practice with my coloring, LOL!
Here is the full hop list:
And don't forget to check out our awesome sponsors!



Thanks so much for stopping by and have fun hopping!
Carly

Laetitia Lisa said...

you're card is so fun :) (and by the way, good idea to stamp images multiple times to practice, I'll try this instead of stamping once and think I'm too bad for being successful at first try ;) )

Such a great card! Fun! I love this initiative! After homeschooling my 5 children for 27 yrs, I took a job as an EA/TA to a 7yr old boy who was on the autism spectrum. He also had FASD. I was with him for 3 years and LOVED it all! Thank you for bringing forward more awareness of the awesomeness of these children.

Kellie Whitmire said...

I would like to say how much I appreciate that you are participating in this. My son is 12 and he has Aspergers syndrome. He also has aggressive ADHD and it was hard to get the autism diagnosis and therefore to get it treated. This is a wonderful way to raise awareness

Carolyn Bounds said...

Such an awesome creation to raise awareness and spread the love for such a worthy cause. Thank you for the smile your card put on my face! :)

Isabelle Baudin said...

Your card is adorable ! I'm like you, I need to practice my techniques. So I usually stamp many times my pictures and if I finally find more than needed which are good enough to be used on a card, I keep them for a future project. But my future project box is very small and still quite empty..... I've got to practice, practice and practice some more, and I love it - LOL !

Thank you for this fantastic blog hop !
