Today the Newton’s Nook Designs Team is proud to be hopping along for the 2018 Stamping for Autism Awareness Blog hop!

We are joining Veronica Zalis and tons of other amazing stampers to help raise autism awareness!  We hope you will help us spread the word and follow along with us.  There are going to be TONS of fun prizes too – including a $25 store credit from Newton’s Nook Designs!  To learn more about this hop and see a complete list of sponsors and prizes, please visit this blog post by Veronica Zalis here.

For my project below, I am showcasing the Once Upon a Princess stamp set with the Uplifting Wishes stamp set.   I also used the blue foil by Therm-O-Web.

I started out by searching Autism awareness images on google.  I found the one that looked like a puzzle piece in black.  I saved the image in my computer and printed it out on Neenah 80 lb. card stock using my laser printer.   Since blue is the color for Autism Awareness, I wanted to foil this piece and make it look like a balloon.  I run it through my laminating machine with the foil.


I stamped my Princess and the little frog prince with Memento Tuxedo black ink and colored them in with my Copic markers. I die-cut the images using the coordinating dies.

I cut a 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 piece of Bristol smooth white card stock and used my handmade stencil using the Sky border dies to create my sky.  Since I am already using too much blue in this card, I wanted the sky to look different and sort of ethereal.  I used my Antique Linen and Tattered Rose distress Oxides for the sky.  I die-cut a piece of mint green card stock for the grass using the sky border dies as well.  I drew the balloon and confetti strings with my Micron Pens.  I finished the design by adding a heart enamel sticker on the puzzle and stamped my sentiment.


Here’s a little close-up:


I just love the simplicity of this card!  I hope you got inspired today.  I have also listed and linked the supplies I used below.
