The Greeting Farm: Thick Cut Letters + Born Again

 
Happy Tuesday! Today, I'm showcasing some new Faith Stamps from The Greeting Farm. These Faith based stamps will be releasing every other month on the last Tuesday. The next release will be in June so make sure to mark your calendars!

This release features an Upper and Lower Case Alphabet set along with a butterfly set called Born Again. I LOVE all 3 of these sets! And the great thing is that these sets are so versatile that you can use them for anything!!!

Thick Cut - Caps

Thick Cut - Lower

Born Again

I decided to make a card along with something to put on my wall just to show how versatile these stamps really are. For the card, I gold embossed the butterflies and then watercolored them with Distress Inks. After I colored them I loaded ink onto my paintbrush and tapped it again a marker to make splatter marks all over


On the wall hanging, I just added random drops to my paper and then sprayed transparency film with water, placed it on top of the ink and smeared the ink. Then I did the same splatter technique. Next, I ink up the letters from the Thick Cut Alphabet stamps using Versafine Black Ink. The word "beautiful" was handwritten. I gold embossed butterflies from the Born Again set onto watercolor paper, painted them, cut them out, and raised them on pop dots.


Head over to The Greeting Farm Store to snatch up these awesome sets!! You can see more inspiration from my fellow DT sisters HERE!

Hugs,
Rosie

The coffee paper is a digital file I got off Etsy called Coffee and Donut Lover Digital Paper.

Stamping for Autism Awareness Blog Hop!

Happy Saturday everyone! I'm back today participating in a Stamping For Autism Awareness Blog Hop! I have several friends who have autistic children so when I was asked to join in this Blog Hop I jumped on board to show my support. 

Having an autistic child is a tough job. While there are many blessings there are also a lot of struggles, and not just within the family. Some of the struggle comes from the outside world with people not being understanding or helpful or inclusive.

While I don't have an autistic child, I do have a brother and sister who both have special needs so I've seen first hand the ostracizing and bullying that can occur from children and adults. So my challenge to you and even myself is to be more understanding, more helpful, and more inclusive!

For my card today I used this stamp set from The Greeting Farm called Little Heroes. The one thing I often hear from parents of an autistic child is how much of a hero their child is to them so I knew I had to do a superhero card. These cuties were colored with Copic Markers.


The puzzle clip-art was Designed by Freepik. I also resized the same clip-art into a tiny square so I could paper-piece parts of their outfits. Why is a puzzle piece a symbol for Autism? On a nationwide level, the Puzzle Piece symbol reflects the mystery and complexity of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Also, since every puzzle piece is different in some way, a puzzle piece accurately represents the diversity of the individuals affected.

 The link up below is the list of crafters participating in this event with me! Have an awesome weekend! Rosie
