We are so excited to be participating in this year's Autism Awareness Blog Hop!
Veronica Zalis organized the blog hop to raise autism awareness and to celebrate all those with autism and those whose lives have been touched by autism. When she contacted us, we knew right away that we wanted to join in!
For more information on the blog hop (and the prizes!), you can read her post here.
Some of you may know that I teach elementary music, which means I see hundreds of students each week. I am so fortunate to teach every student in my school! I have to say that my students with autism are among the sweetest and it's an honor to see them grow from year to year.
For my card today, I started with a piece of 4.25″x5.5″ cardstock. I blended Warm Sunshine ink over the Layered Kaleidoscope Stencil A, followed by Coral Berry ink over Layered Kaleidoscope Stencil B. I focused the second layer of ink in the center of the panel only, inking more heavily in the middle.
Then, I stamped out a little dude from the Ninja Invasion Stamp Set and cut him out with the coordinating die. I adhered him to the inked panel with foam tape so that his foot lined up with the pink burst in the center. I love how it looks like he's got a powerful kick!
The sentiment was created with the ASL Love Stamp Set and each letter was cut out with its coordinating die. I popped these up onto a strip of cardstock and then adhered the strip with foam tape as well. To finish the card, I mounted the panel onto an A2 sized white card.
Veronica has all of the links on her blog, so please visit her blog to see everyone's amazing creations!

What a worthy cause for a blog hop, thank you so much for spreading the awareness, and being one of the amazing sponsors! The card is really cool, and so apt for the cause!
Thank you for being part of this blog for autism awareness. This disorder is pervasive meaning it affects every aspect of the affected individuals life. Very difficult for the person to deal with. My son has aspergers and crafting and card making has helped me so much in coming to terms with what we face daily as a family.
Great card and great cause.

My son is on the spectrum (aspergers). Thank you for participating in this cause. Your products are so lovely.

I didn’t realize you were a music teacher, how awesome would that be??? My oldest grandson just started school this year and he loves his music teacher and learning new songs. He is always so excited and chatty about what he learns in that class so I can only imagine the fun conversations you must enjoy on a daily basis.
This is a wonderful cause to learn more about, thanks for being a sponsor.
WOW! Here is why I am awestruck..and have a big smile on my face—What a wonderful crafting community we have and the impact that we can make together. I am so proud! Veronica and all the sponsors- THANK YOU!
My son has been diagnosed on the spectrum recently. We’re still learning about Autism, treatments and what to expect later in our life. Thank you for this awareness blog hop. We know that we’re not alone. Bless all the families that have been touched with Autism!
This is a great cause because we have a daughter who has Asperger Syndrome. So your card is fabulous and bright colors which I love. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful week.
I have a co-worker with two boys with Autism and a dear friend has a little boy with it. The time they both spend to continually learn about this condition is unreal. Bless all those who are dealing with this. Thank you for being a teacher too!

I am teaching with 4/5 years children and there are 2 autistic children in my class. The boys are sweetie and everyday, I get to learn more about them. Thank you for this wonderful blog hop which make more crafters aware of autism.
Such a lovely card. The ninja stamp set is so pretty. Such a great cause for a blog hop.
This blog hop is a great way to make awareness for Autism. There is so much research needed to understand this illness.
Awesome ninja card! Reminds of the fight to deal with autism successfully. A great cause!
I love the ninja card!
Thank you so very much. It chokes me up to see all the support. Art/crafting are the most therapeutic and relaxing things for both those on the spectrum and those who care for them. I simply can not imagine a day without craft for my son and I it makes my heart so happy to see the companies I know and love so readily contribute to this cause. Also, the ninja card is fantastic it fits so very well. From the bottom of my heart – thank you.
Fantastic creation! Love this stencil and the beautiful effects! Thanks to everyone who are part of the awesome blog hop, and to the sponsors!
I am continually in a state of admiration that the crafting community always steps up and steps up a lot to support worthy causes. If you think about it, it is not something you see done a lot by other hobbyist communities. ? Thanks Altenew and everyone on the hop.
No, YOU rock! Love supporting this worthy cause!
This card is so neat. Really like how you used the sign language letters on the bottom.
Love this little ninja guy! Your card is so cute and fun.
What a great card for encouragement!

Awesome card for an awesome cause.
Fabulous card for such a worthy cause! Thanks for being a sponsor!
Great background for this cute Ninja dude. I like the ASL letters for the sentiment.
