Best Day Evah

Having some more fun with the June Paper Smooches Challenge! 🙂 Layers!

This card is waaaaay simpler in the layer department than my last card. You can see that one HERE. I still want to layer all the things after those hearts. 😉

hawkins_jill_best day_wmI rubbed some distress inks on the bottom layer and flicked some water. I then adhered the navy blue skyline. I thought this sentiment was fun to complete the card.

I definitely gravitate to Awesome. Literally. 😉 This card is made with Neat & Tangled’s Awesome die! I so enjoy the way this “Awesome” is written!I

hawkins_jill_awesome spiro_wmI have always loved Spirograph! My grandparents, that lived next door to us growing up, had a Spirograph kit. I loved using all those colored pens. That set is long gone. *sigh*. BUT, I just “borrowed” my son’s set instead! Bwaaaahaaahaaa! Shhh. 😉

hawkins_jill_awesome spiro_00_wmI know who I’m sending this one to! 😉

The Wonky Stitched Rectangle is from My Favorite Things.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a good week!

Happy Dad’s Day!

I had some fun mixing up some Technique Tuesday supplies, to make a cute Dad’s Day card!

hawkins_jill_fave dad_wmMy Dad doesn’t wear a bow tie, but I thought this made the little big bird that much more fun! 🙂

hawkins_jill_fave dad_00_wmI stamped, die cut, and colored with Copic markers. Love these little birds!

I used the following Technique Tuesday supplies: Postage Card die, Chicks Rule, Summer (glasses die), and Man Day.

Here’s to all the great Dad’s out there! 🙂

Granny Panties :)

I used some more fun little stamps from the Sweet Stamp Shop again. This little set just makes me laugh. And well, when can’t we use a laugh? 🙂

hawkins_jill_granny panties_wmI’ve also taken to just holding my cards to get a better pic! LOL. Something so simple, yet so elusive. 🙂hawkins_jill_granny panties_00_wmI colored these with Copics and used Glossy Accents on the glasses. This is another punny stamp set, Grannie Panties, from Sweet Stamp Shop. 🙂

The die and background stamp I used, is from My Favorite Things. 🙂

We Are All Rockstars!

Rockin’ out some more Technique Tuesday fun! This sentiment & tape stamp is from the Turn Up The Volume. Fun stuff. 

hawkins_jill_rockstars_wm I embossed the tapes and then used Distress Inks to watercolor over them. hawkins_jill_rockstars_00_wmAfter that was all set, I die cut some stars, stamped the sentiment, and stitched some sequins on.  🙂 

I think these music sentiments are fun & unexpected for cards. Plus, let’s face it…in my head is the only place I can actually carry a tune. 😉

Check out all the fun at Technique Tuesday!

Here’s to a happy Wednesday!!

PS Layered Hearts

Having fun with the June Paper Smooches Challenge! 🙂 Layers!

This is a card that really needs to be enjoyed in person, as you can see below, a photo straight on isn’t quite as fun as holding it on an angle.

hawkins_jill_all kinds_00_wmI used a bright yellow, a poppy orange, and a mint color to layer these hearts.hawkins_jill_all kinds_0_wmI thought I was photo challenged the other day? Ha! This brought things to another level of challenging. 🙂

hawkins_jill_all kinds_wmPaper Smooches : Linked Hearts die, and Fun and Flirty stamps.

Love all the fun hidden layers. So very cool. 😉 When I finished, I thought of Emily Leiphart’s super cool layered bike card (HERE) she made for Paper Smooches many months back. Emily, your inspiration is seeping into my subconscious! 🙂 Love that–thanks!

For the Record

I can’t stop using my favorite from Technique Tuesday’s June release, this Music Makers record die!

hawkins_jill_bono_00_wmSuch a super fun sentiment from this Memory Keepers Make Music! I drew a grid for the BG and kept this card very simple in the end. It sort of has a little 80’s feel, yes? 🙂
I’ll be back this week to show more fun from this Technique Tuesday release, so stay tuned!

Have an awesome weekend!! Jill 🙂
