Hi everyone and welcome to the 2018 Stamping for Autism Awareness Blog Hop. I am thrilled to be a part of a fantastic group of designers as we do our part in spreading Autism Awareness to our crafting community.
This hop was created and hosted by Veronica Zalis. And, I am supporting her effort to spread the autism awareness not only because she's my friend, but also to honor my foster brother in Indonesia teach at school for autistic children. I think it's a honorable, hard work that not too many people chose to do.
3 of the companies that I am designing for are proud sponsor of this hop, SugarPea Designs, The Ton & Honey Bee Stamps. So, for my card I am proudly representing all 3 companies. :)
I first cut the diagonal background using SugarPea Designs Diagonal Striped Cover Plate out of watercolor cardstock and then add the watercolor. Let dry and adhere to card base. Next, I work on the critters & flowers. The beaver is fromSugarPea Timber set & the bear, bunny & hedgehog trio is from Honey Bee Forest Friends set. The flower is from The Ton Fresh Cut Sunflower Outlines. Color all of them with Copic and once that done I simply arrange them all on the card and adhere with pop-dots.
There's more dimension on this card in person as on top of adhering the images with pop dots, I also like to curl the pieces before adhering them, so they don't look so flat. Finished by stamping the sentiment.
These are the generous and just flat out fantastic companies that have donated over $1,100 in prizes!! Make sure you visit Veronica's blog for the prize detail and visit all the companies who generously sponsor this hop (see the links below).
