Autism Blog Hop with NND!



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

I have Three posts today for the hop so be sure to scroll to see the other projects! 


To learn more about this hop and see a complete list of sponsors and prizes, please visit this blog post by Veronica Zalis here.


I created an A2 size White card base and then I added a piece of rainbow paper from Doodlebug along the bottom of the card front. For the focal panel, I die cut a piece of Distress Ink Watercolor paper using the small stitched rectangle in the Frames and Flags Die set. I added some Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink to create a background. 


I stamped the unicorn and cloud images from the Believe in Unicorns stamp set onto some X-press it Blending cardstock and colored them in with Copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut the images out. I adhered them to the panel with some foam tape. For some extra sparkle, I added some Clear Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen and some Mixed Sparkling clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

  27. Happy to see such wonderful card made for a wonderful cause to bring awareness to such great group of individuals with autism.
    I have a daughter with autism who is 25 years old as people so misunderstand this disorder as parents we get judged as if it is something we did or have not done right raising our child.
    Sadly many more tears come as people expect your adult looking child should be doing typical adult things.
    Thanks for inspiration. Crafting is my outlet to escape the challenges.
    Have a blessed day!

  31. I was going to use the unicorn for my card today too! (but changed my mind, obviously.) Unicorns seem perfect to represent people on the spectrum (or simply with special needs), they're still horses, just a bit different ;-) LOVE your gorgeous card!
