MFT Color Challenge #33

Color Challenge #33 is on the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog!

MFT_ColorChallenge_PaintBook_33I’m really enjoyed working with this combo because it evokes such coziness. Hence my cards for this Challenge:

hawkins_jill_let's cuddle_wmThis card makes me oh so happy! The new Chunky Chevron Cover up is AWESOME. Just so cool. The possibilities! 🙂

For this card, I cut the cover up out of Sweet Tooth and then inlaid all the pieces. After, I overlaid the hollow Steel Gray cover up in the opposite direction. I shrieked a bit! Die cutting and stamping are definitely my happy. 🙂

hawkins_jill_let's cuddle_00_wmI made another card with this combo, this time using the chevron pieces only 🙂

hawkins_jill_the snuggle_wmAgain, The Snuggle is Real. I keep joking I may need an intervention to stop using these two products. Of course, I’m kidding. Or am I? Haaaaa! 🙂

hawkins_jill_the snuggle_00_wmThis color combo just says: Winter. 🙂

My Favorite Things: Sketch #254

photoMFT Sketch Challenge #254 drifts on in to the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration Blog today!! Join us!

This week’s sketch: I really like this week’s sketch! 🙂MFT_WSC_254Here is my take this week:hawkins_jill_snuggle_wmEggplant, grays, hot cocoa with marshmallows…and The Snuggle is Real. ❤ I could not wait to use this sentiment again, and again, and again… 🙂 Plus, I’ve always loved that banner type piece from Blueprints #25. Geometrically fun!

hawkins_jill_snuggle_00_wmOh goodness, I am so so very happy MFT has introduced the two new GRAYS! They compliment the existing ones I use so often. I am trying hard not to order a back up pack of each gray. I believe this is a common crafter problem, right? A version of hoarding your supplies you most adore. So silly! 🙂

My Favorite Things: Simplicity

Sometimes you just need to make a card, and you need to be on the quicker side. That was the case here. These MFT Party Patterns stamps are a go-to for something like this.

hawkins_jill_bestest wishes_00_wmI inked the stamps, then wiped them off with a cloth. I thought it gave a fun touch. 🙂 Something a little different, but keeping this one quick and simple. I completely enjoy spending and hour + on a card when time permits, but sometimes, you just gotta rock it out. Plus, I can’t resist a one layer card…or a rainbow! 😉hawkins_jill_bestest wishes_wmThere is still a smidge of time to get in on the MFT Sketch Challenge #253! Don’t forget to upload your card! See you back here tomorrow for the new MFT Sketch!photo My card is made with the following supplies at My Favorite Things:

My Favorite Things: Sketch #253

photoMFT Sketch Challenge #253 is jumpin‘ on the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration Blog!

This week’s sketch:

MFT_WSC_253Here is my take this week:

hawkins_jill_smore fun_00_wmEEEEEEEEEE!! S’mores! So tasty and super fun to die cut for cards.hawkins_jill_smore fun_wmI stamped up a second card for this Sketch because I had to use this little doggy. I initially wanted this Top Dog set specifically for this dog. Too cute:

hawkins_jill_it's been_wmI colored this pup with Copics, straight up. No shading, no nothing. I don’t know that I have ever done that before and I’m not quite sure why? LOL. 🙂 It’s weird how this card photo shows variation in the brown, because in person, it’s a solid, even brown. Wacky. My best skill is not card photography, but I have been working on it little by little. 🙂
