Nailed It for Autism Speaks April Blog Hop

Donate to Autism Speaks #stampcandy

I am honored today to help promote Autism Awareness by participating in the Autism Speaks April Blog Hop. The theme of this hop is, appropriately enough, Autism. We have created projects using the Autism Colors: red, blue and/or yellow.

Here’s why Autism Speaks:

Please help Amy’s fund raising efforts by clicking here to go to her Autism Speaks Fundraiser page. It’s very easy, and it takes just a minute. If everyone gave just $1-2, it would make a world of difference.

Here’s what I made:

I went to the Stampin’ Up! Brights family to choose three happy colors: Real Red, Pacific Point, and Daffodil Delight. I used the Nailed It stamp set – which is also available in a bundle with the Build It Framelits Dies to save you 10%!

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Pacific Point card stock (CS) to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • Real Red CS to 1″ x 4″
  • Daffodil Delight CS to 3/4″ x 4″
  • Daffodil Delight CS to 3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″ for inside

Stamped with the Nailed It stamp set:

  • sentiment in Pacific Point ink onto Daffodil Delight CS strip
  • saw image in Pacific Point ink onto the front of the card base
  • saw image in Pacific Point ink onto the Daffodil Delight CS piece for the inside

Colored using the White Stampin’ Chalk Marker:

  • highlights on saws on card front
  • filled in saw on Daffodil Delight CS

Notched with Banner Triple Punch:

  • right end of Daffodil Delight CS strip
  • right end of Real Red CS strip

Assembled the card:

  • trimmed left ends of Daffodil Delight CS strip and Real Red CS strip to desired length with Paper Snips, then glued them together
  • two small Pacific Point dots applied to the sentiment strip
  • sentiment strip adhered to card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Daffodil Delight CS glued to inside of card

SPEAKING OF RETIRING PRODUCTS

The Designer Series Papers always retire, too. So these products won’t be available after May 31. And just like the retiring In Colors above, at some point before the end of May, these items will become available only while supplies last. Don’t wait until the last minute. Get them now!
