Autism Awareness Blog Hop


Hello Crafty Friends!

Today I am honoured to be participating in the 2018 Stamping for Autism Awareness Blog hop. This blog hop was started in 2016 by two moms of Autistic children, Veronica Zalis and Tenia Nelson. Be sure to head on over to Veronica’s blog to see the full list of blog hop participants!

Together our goal is to help bring awareness to the world and celebrate World Autism Awareness Day. Today the Honey Bee DT, myself, and many others in the stamping industry are painting the crafting community blue. So if it's blue you will know what the card represents! Help us raise awareness and join the celebration of all those with autism and those whose lives have been touched by autism.

For my "blue" project, I thought it would be fun to color the fox from the Feelin' Foxy Stamp set blue. Why not paint a fox blue?! I believe you should be yourself no matter what, be unique, be you... because that is what makes us beautiful!


I began by stamping out the fox and butterfly, then masking them off. I then used the Outdoor Scene builder stencil to add the clouds and the mountains, of course in Blue distress oxide inks (Broken China and Salty Ocean). Next, I colored in my fox using spectrum noir markers. Once the fox and background was all colored in I placed the panel back in the stamp positioner and re stamped the fox and heat set the image with black embossing powder. I then stamped the sentiment out using the Foxy and Cheerful Sentiment stamps as well as added my hearts and heat set them and the sentiment with a clear embossing powder. I then used my largest stitched rectangle die and cut out the card front. Added a black layer and adhered that layer to another blue piece of cardstock. Finished the card by adding it to a top folding A2 size card.


I hope you’ve enjoyed my Blue Fox today, and that you will be visiting the other blogs along the hop! There are a bunch of great projects created by very talented crafters that you don’t want to miss as we celebrate Autism Awareness 😁
