Work Of Art For World Autism Awareness Day Blog Hop

Anna' Stampin' Cave - rainbow watercolour wash using Stampin' Up! Work of Art Stamp Set for World Autism Awareness Day Blog Hop

Anna’ Stampin’ Cave – Work Of Art For World Autism Awareness Day Blog Hop

Hello everyone and welcome to my ‘stampin’ cave’!

Today, 2nd April is World Autism Awareness Day, and I am joining together with over 40 of talented Stampin’ Up! demonstrators across the world in honour of raising awareness for Autism. This fantastic blog hop has been put together by truly amazing Jenny Hall.

We hope you find great inspiration from our projects. You are currently visiting me – Anna Krol from the United Kingdom. 

Y’all probably know already that the symbol for Autism Awareness is the puzzle piece in bright colours, but do you know why? To be honest I didn’t know the answer to that question. So I’ve made some research and here’s what I’ve found:

The puzzle piece logo was first created in 1963 by the National Autistic Society. They explain “that the symbol of the Society should be the puzzle as this did not look like any other commercial or charitable one as far as they could discover. The puzzle piece is so effective because it tells us something about autism: our children are handicapped by a puzzling condition; this isolates them from normal human contact and therefore they do not ‘fit in’. The bright colours are said to represent hope.

And so for my project, I decided to go with my favourite watercolour wash in bright, rainbow colours.

Anna' Stampin' Cave - rainbow watercolour wash using Stampin' Up! Work of Art Stamp Set for World Autism Awareness Day Blog Hop

Work of Art card dimensions:

  • Basic Black cardstock: 11-6/8″ x 4-1/8″ scored in half at 5-7/8″ (29.7 x 10.5 cm scored in half at 14.8 cm)
  • Shimmery White cardstock: 4″ x 5-5/8″ (10.1 cm x 14.4 cm)
  • Whisper White cardstock (for inside): 3-7/8″ x 5-1/2″ (9.7 cm x 14 cm)
  • a piece of Basic Black cardstock for the sentiment

Anna' Stampin' Cave - rainbow watercolour wash using Stampin' Up! Work of Art Stamp Set for World Autism Awareness Day Blog Hop

First I created my rainbow, watercolour wash. I wet my Shimmery White piece generously, creating sort of diagonal spotlight area. and started adding my colours. I chose Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Pacific Point. I spread colours around using aqua painter.

To speed up my process, once I was happy with the effect I dried my panel with a heat tool.

Next, using aqua painter and Basick Black Archival ink, I flicked tiny black plotches all over my panel.

Anna' Stampin' Cave - rainbow watercolour wash using Stampin' Up! Work of Art Stamp Set for World Autism Awareness Day Blog Hop

For the sentiment, I chose ‘You are a fabulous work of art’ from Work of Art Stamp Set. I think it suits well the cause.

First I stamped it straight onto the panel in Basic Black Archival ink, but I didn’t like it. So I took a piece of Basic Black cardstock and die cut a circle using Stitched Shapes Thinlits Dies (2nd smallest). I stamped my sentiment in Versamark. Next to it I stamped a little butterfly image from Hold on to Hope stamp set. I heat embossed both in white.

Anna' Stampin' Cave - rainbow watercolour wash using Stampin' Up! Work of Art Stamp Set for World Autism Awareness Day Blog Hop

I wanted to bring that ‘rainbow effect’ to the inside of my card too but without watercolouring. So I stamped ‘the rainbow’ in the bottom right corner on the inside panel using long narrow strip stamp from Work of Art stamp set. I’ve used same colours like on the front.

Few black sequins from Metallics Sequins Assortment finish off the card.

And that’s it from me for today. I truly hope you liked my project. Now I want to encourage you to join in and hope along.

Anna' Stampin' Cave - Amazing You Card using Stampin' Up! Amazing You Stamp Set & Celebrate You Thinlits Dies - Bermuda Bay - Pool Party - Gold

Anna’ Stampin’ Cave – Amazing You Clean & Simple Card Using SAB Freebies

Are you pink or blue person? Why my question you may be wondering?

Couple of days ago I shared with you lovely, CAS card using Amazing You Stamp Set and Celebrate You Thinlits Dies with flower in pink – you can check it here.

Today, however, I have a very similar card using the same products and layout, but in blue instead of pink.

Here’s my card –

Anna' Stampin' Cave - Amazing You Card using Stampin' Up! Amazing You Stamp Set & Celebrate You Thinlits Dies - Bermuda Bay - Pool Party - Gold

Amazing You card dimensions:

  • Bermuda Bay cardstock: 11-6/8″ x 4-1/8″ scored in half at 5-7/8″ (29.7 x 10.5 cm scored in half at 14.8 cm)
  • Whisper White cardstock: 3-5/8″ x 5-3/8″ (9.3 cm x 13.6 cm)
  • Whisper White cardstock (for inside): 3″ x 4-5/8″ (7.6 cm x 11.7 cm)
  • a piece of watercolour paper for stamping the flower
  • a strip of Gold Foil cardstock for die cutting
  • Gold 1/8″ Ribbon: 8″ approximately

Anna' Stampin' Cave - Amazing You Card using Stampin' Up! Amazing You Stamp Set & Celebrate You Thinlits Dies - Bermuda Bay - Pool Party - Gold

In today’s card I still encorporated gold elements, but I swapped Berry Burst and Powder Pink inks for Bermuda Bay and Pool Party. I love this dreamy teal-y flower!

Anna' Stampin' Cave - Amazing You Card using Stampin' Up! Amazing You Stamp Set & Celebrate You Thinlits Dies - Bermuda Bay - Pool Party - Gold

I love the script on this ‘amazing’ die cut. It’s bit tricky to adhere but totally worth the hustle. ‘You’ is stamped in soft, Pool Party ink. For the greenery this time I used only one shade of green: Pear Pizzazz.

Anna' Stampin' Cave - Amazing You Card using Stampin' Up! Amazing You Stamp Set & Celebrate You Thinlits Dies - Bermuda Bay - Pool Party - Gold

To finish off the inside of the card I stamped the flower in Pool Party ink, in bottom right corner.

So? Are you pink or blue person? I would love to know.

– Gold 1/8″ Ribbon: 8″ approximately
Anna' Stampin' Cave - Let's Celebrate Clean &  Simple Card using Stampin' Up! Amazing You Stamp Set - Powder Pink, Berry Burst & Gold FoilFirst, I stamped my flower on a piece of watercolour paper in Versamark, heat embossed it in gold, and fussy cut it (without leaves).
To paint the flower I’ve used aqua painter. For the first layer of colour I chose Powder Pink ink pad. Once it dried, I’ve used Berry Burst ink pad to add more depth to the petals.

Anna' Stampin' Cave - Let's Celebrate Clean &  Simple Card using Stampin' Up! Amazing You Stamp Set - Powder Pink, Berry Burst & Gold FoilI took a Whisper White panel, decided where my flower will be placed, and using Stamp-a-ma-jig I stamped leaves in Lemon Lime Twist. Next, I stamped over them with Pear Pizzazz to darken them a bit and also stamped more leaves in Pear Pizzaz.

Anna' Stampin' Cave - Let's Celebrate Clean &  Simple Card using Stampin' Up! Amazing You Stamp Set - Powder Pink, Berry Burst & Gold Foil

Using dry brush I picked some of that Berry Burst ink, flicked it over the Whisper White panel and assembled my card before adding the flower.
I cut a piece of Gold 1/8″ Ribbon (briefly 8″), added it underneath the flower and adhered it to the card base with dimensionals.

Anna' Stampin' Cave - Let's Celebrate Clean &  Simple Card using Stampin' Up! Amazing You Stamp Set - Powder Pink, Berry Burst & Gold Foil

For the sentiment I die cut the word “celebrate” from Celebrate You Thinlits Dies in gold foil and also stamped “Let’s” from Amazing You Stamp Set in Powder Pink next to the flower. And that’s my card for today.

Stampin’ Dreams March Blog Hop

Anna' Stampin' Cave - Stampin' Up! Hold On To Hope Stamp Set - Bible Scriptures - Clean & Simple - Faith Card

Anna’ Stampin’ Cave – Hold On To Hope

Hello everyone! Welcome to the monthly Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop. This month’s theme is Easter/Spring. You are currently visiting Anna Krol from the United Kingdom.

I have to admit I am addicted. I’m addicted to all things that are related to Bible journaling and Bible scriptures art. And every time Stampin’ Up! release a set that includes Bible verses it always ends up in my shopping cart. I love to use them either in my Journaling Bible or to create cards of encouragement and hope.

And today I’ve got for you very simple card, showcasing beautiful Hold On To Hope Stamp Set from Stampin’ Up!

This stamp set comes with coordinating dies called Cross Of Hope Framelits Dies. And if you buy them as a BUNDLE you will instantly save 10% on your purchase.

Today I only used stamp set and here’s my card –

Anna' Stampin' Cave - Stampin' Up! Hold On To Hope Stamp Set - Bible Scriptures - Clean & Simple - Faith Card

Hold On To Hope card dimensions:

  • Whisper White Thick cardstock: 11-6/8″ x 4″ scored in half at 5-7/8″ (29.7 x 10.2 cm scored in half at 14.8 cm)
  • Crumb Cake cardstock: 3-7/8″ x 5-1/2″ (9.8 cm x 14.1 cm)
  • Whisper White cardstock: 3-3/4″ x 5-3/8″ (9.4 cm x 13.8 cm)

  • Pearl Basic Jewels

Anna' Stampin' Cave - Stampin' Up! Hold On To Hope Stamp Set - Bible Scriptures - Clean & Simple - Faith Card

To create this lovely card first I created the focal point: I stamped a Bible verse (Isaiah 46:4, from the stamp set) – on a piece of Whisper White cardstock in Pool Party ink and mat it with a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock.

Next, I took a Whisper White panel and using Stamp-a-ma-jig decided where to stamp the beautiful flourish (from the same stamp set) so it won’t be hidden once I adhere my sentiment panel. I stamped it twice, on opposite corners, using Always Artichoke ink pad.

Anna' Stampin' Cave - Stampin' Up! Hold On To Hope Stamp Set - Bible Scriptures - Clean & Simple - Faith CardTo add some more interest to a rather simple card, I stamped ‘Isaiah 46:4″ in Cherry Cobbler ink on a strip of Whisper White cardstock, snip the ends diagonally and adhered it at an angle to the sentiment. Little pearls in the centres of the flowers finish off the card.
