Stamp Out Autism Blog Hop


Welcome to the Stamp Out Autism Blog Hop!  Thank you for stopping by!  I’m stop #11 on a blog hop with 17 fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrators.  You may have hopped over from stop #10, Laura Milligan.  We collectively are sharing projects that showcase our love of stamping and paper crafting as well as raise awareness and funds for those affected by autism.  There’s an opportunity to help with your donation below!

  • Did you know the color for autism awareness is blue?  It inspired my combination of Stampin’ Up! Bermuda Bay, Night of Navy and Pool Party!
  • Seeing stars!  Simple rows of stars create a colorful, striped pattern.  I used the star die from the Stampin’ Up! Gift Card Envelope & Trim Thinlits Dies to produce the rows.

  • Cropped stars left over from die cutting the rows found new life when randomly sprinkled at the top.  I added a touch of rhinestone bling.

  • The sentiment “celebrate” is from Endless Birthday Wishes (photopolymer), a perfect little stamp set of essential sentiments with a sweet font!
  • Pin my Stampin’ Pretty Color Mix! Visit my Stampin’ Pretty Color Ideas Board on Pinterest for more ideas.

Each participant in the hop is sharing a fact about autism.  MY FACT:  As early as infancy, a baby can begin to show the three hallmark features of autism:  communication challenges, impaired social interactions and repetitive behavior.


My friend and fellow Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Lee Conrey has organized this hop and autism awareness/fundraiser.  Thank you, Lee, for your passion and dedication to this cause.  If you would like to help, you may donate through her link HERE or by clicking the image above.
