Celebrating 10!

My Favorite Things is celebrating 10 years!! How exciting! Happy Birthday to MFT, Kim, and the whole MFT team!! 🙂

I’m sneaking this in for the little bonus challenge this month. Details can be found HERE! For my use of 10, I used TEN FLOWERS!  🙂

hawkins_jill_darn great_wmThis color combo is not totally my thing, but I figured I’d share it anyway. 🙂

Here’s another card I made last year with the Buildable Blooms set. This one might be my favorite. 🙂

hawkins_jill_hello_wmI’m so glad I finally got this card out of my head! 🙂 I haven’t done all these pieced stripes in a while, and I love them so. 🙂

hawkins_jill_hello_00_wmI combined the stripes with this fun new Lighthouse die and an older favorite, Hello Love…and boom! A delightful, bright hello! Too fun! 🙂

Hello Sunshine

Hello Sunshine! Here is one more card for the Ellen Hutson Mix it Up Challenge with Neat & Tangled! I used Neat and Tangled’s Say Yes to Donuts and Ellen Hutson’s All Inside stamp set for this card. You can find my other two cards HERE and HERE. Eeeeep! Love these together! 🙂

hawkins_jill_hello sunshine_wmI almost tossed this card because I did not like the way the inked background turned out. But after a while, I decided it was completely tragic and would still bring sunshine to a mailbox, right? 🙂

hawkins_jill_hello sunshine_00_wmThis card isn’t too different from my first card, because I actually thought to stamp two cards at once! Haaaa! Something I never do, so I was glad. These few stitches took the longest. Because there are so few, they are delicate and pulled out. So that took a couple attempts. Ha!! Of all things. 🙂

I also used a die from My Favorite Things: Wonky Stitched Rectangle STAX. 🙂

Have a great week!

Love Inside

Here is my second entry for the Ellen Hutson Mix it Up Challenge with Neat & Tangled! For this card, I used Neat and Tangled’s Say Yes to Donuts and Ellen Hutson’s All Inside stamp and die set. Too sweet! 🙂

hawkins_jill_love inside_wmI stamped and masked the LOVE and then finished stamping and colored the images with Copic markers. Simple and fun! 🙂

Hugs

I was delighted to see the Ellen Hutson Mix it Up Challenge is with Neat & Tangled! I was finally able to make a couple of cards last night for the challenge. Whoot! I used N & T’s Scandinavian Prints and Ellen Hutson’s All Inside stamp and die set. A match made in delightfulness! 🙂

hawkins_jill_hugs_wmThis little bear is just the cutest and I think it is genius that the die cuts him so that he can hold things! Too fun! Mixed with the extremely versatile Scandinavian Prints for a background. I was originally thinking I’d give them stems, and then I decided I liked them just like this. If I did it again, I’d bring them down a bit. 🙂

hawkins_jill_hugs_00_wmI should note that I have NEVER tried no line coloring before! I’m not even sure how I decided to do it here? I was thinking ombré, and then next thing I knew….ha! I never knew how much i relied and on the lines until I tried this. I can’t say that I enjoyed it either. Haaaa! If you want to see no line coloring at its finest, check out my friend Alice’s work HERE. Alice always blows my little coloring mind. 🙂

I also used two dies from My Favorite Things on this card: Wonky Stitched Rectangle STAX and the Stitched Fishtail Flag STAX. Staples I tell ya. 🙂

Get Well Soon!

For this cute card, I used my tag from Day 8 of #thedailymarker30day and completed this sweet Lawn Fawn card. It has already gone postal! 🙂

hawkins_jill_get well soon_wmI used Lawn Fawn’s Get Well Soon cutie set. 😉

hawkins_jill_get well soon_00_wmI loosely watercolored everything with Distress Inks. Finished it up with some Wink of Stella sparkle, googley eyes (googley eyese make everything better!), stitching, some patterned paper and Lawn Trimmings (that I re-purposed from a package Lawn Fawn sent awhile back.) 🙂 The tag die is from My Favorite Things.

The current Lawnscaping Challenge is a Mood Board!! Check out all the fun HERE!
