A Different Kind of PS Love

I just think these Paper Smooches flower dies with their long stems are such fun! For this card however, I chopped those lovely stems right off. The horror! I cringed. 😉

hawkins_jill_love_wmI had this card idea floating around in my head for weeks and weeks and finally got it out. The original plan was to use a rainbow of colors though. Then this happened! 😉

hawkins_jill_love_00_wmDefinitely out of my comfort zone combining the uncontrolled watercolors with the precise die cutting! I always like a good challenge though. 😉

I stacked a few of the Love die cuts up to give it a little more oomph. I also used the negative to get an “extra” flower.

Paper Smooches supplies: Dainty Flowers dies, Dainty Flowers 2 dies, Love Word die.

I’m again playing along with the new January Paper Smooches Challenge! 🙂 Check it out! Pick four colors (and neutrals, as needed) and make something fun! My first card HERE, I tried to use colors from this photo. This time, I just went rogue! 😉

Avery Elle: Winter!

I have so many supplies that have been screaming at me to use them. So, I am doing just that! 🙂 This time, I busted out another favorite, Avery Elle.

My Grannie lives in sunny Florida and recently moved. I thought she would get a kick out of a “Cool Digs” igloo card in Florida! 🙂

hawkins_jill_cool digs_wmThis Distress ink watercolors look pretty dang cool in person, but yet, I just can’t get the photo to cooperate. (The photography saga goes on! Ha!! 🙂 )

hawkins_jill_cool digs_00_wmI thought it would be fun to do a tone on tone background for this jazzy tag. So I used the Happy Camper set and did just that. Delightful 🙂 The igloo and sentiment are from the fun set, Home Sweet Home. Love that teepee! 🙂

This works out to play along with the AEI♥U Challenge this month: Winter!Challenge 32Here’s just a few other Avery Elle projects I made previously: here, here, here, & here!

My Favorite Things: Sketch #262

photoI thought it would be fun to play along with the MFT Sketch Challenge #262 on the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog. Fun stuff to see there!
Here’s my take: I wanted a Manly Valentine, if there is such a thing? 🙂

hawkins_jill_heart you_wmI was hoping to use some die cuts I already had for this Chunky Chevron Cover Up. I found them from making THESE cards!  #winning 😉

hawkins_jill_heart you_1wm This second photo is redundant, but I couldn’t get a detail photo to turn out. So here’s the closest thing. Ha! 🙂

My card is made with the following supplies at My Favorite Things: Die-namics: LJD All My Love, Thank you, Chunky Chevron Cover Up, Stripes Cover Up. Card stocks:  Factory Green, Steel Grey, Cherry Crisp, Smooth White, Silver Sparkle, Vellum.

Thanks for stopping in!

Dang, You’re Freakin’ Great

I had been itching to use these glasses. I combined Paper Smooches sets and sentiments to make it say what I needed! “Dang, You’re Freakin’ Great!”  🙂

hawkins_jill_dang_wmThis card took WAY too long to make! LOL 🙂 But in the end, I think it is fun!

hawkins_jill_dang_00_wmPaper Smooches supplies: Slang Gang, Space Cadet, Glasses Dies, & Shadows.

I was originally using the other eye glasses die in this set, but I wanted to Man it Up instead. 🙂

I’m playing along with the new January Paper Smooches Challenge! 🙂 Check it out –pick four colors (and neutrals, as needed) and make something! 🙂
