Just a Note…

Just a note 🙂

hawkins_jill_just a note_wmI always love using this Dodecagram set from Altenew.

hawkins_jill_just a note_00_wmI stamped, embossed, and watercolored these images. I stitched and matted the panel to complete the card. Delightful! 🙂

This is another card panel from the latest #thedailymarker30 day. My other projects are here on Instagram: jilldhawkins

Teacher Appreciation…

I thought I’d pop in and share the two Teacher Appreciation cards we delivered at the beginning of this fun week!

This first one’s sentiment from Altenew makes my heart warm. Especially when teaching preschoolers. I think there is a lot of love and care that goes along with teaching the youngest kids. 🙂

hawkins_jill_teachers_wmThis stamp is Teachers Rule from Altenew, the Notebook die is from Technique Tuesday, the PP is from Cosmo Cricket and the background die is MFT. 🙂hawkins_jill_teachers_00_wmBecause my son has two Awesome teachers:

hawkins_jill_thank u teach_wmThis stamp is Little Minds from Avery Elle. The dies are from MFT. 🙂

hawkins_jill_thank u teach_00_wmSuper enjoy these Teacher stamp sets. I stamped and colored these images a couple of months back, so I wasn’t rushing about this week. But guess what? Yup, didn’t get them assembled til late Sunday night. Ugh. Never fails! 🙂

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again…Teachers Rock! We have had the pleasure of two amazing teachers, two years in a row. Grateful for their energy and PATIENCE! 🙂

I just received this fantastic set, World’s Greatest Award from Technique Tuesday. Another fun one for Teachers! I hope to make something later this week with my little helper, and share it after. We’ll see what pans out!

Take care–

Happy Wednesday! I love this stamping technique, and I’m not sure I’ve used it recently? I first stamp in white, and then I stamp over that with dye ink. Every time, I sort of ooh and ahh how fun the results are, both at first, and when it dries. You can also stamp the color dye ink before the white is dry, and that’ll give another look! 🙂

This card is using stamps from both Neat & Tangled and Altenew. <3. I just wish I had stamped the ‘Thanks’ in gray. I had it out, and grabbed the wrong pad. 😦 Whomp whomp. Could have been worse, right? It could have been purple! Ack! 🙂

hawkins_jill_thanks_wmSo. Fun. 🙂

Have you seen the latest release from Neat & Tangled? Oh. My. Word. Such good stuff. Especially my friend Miriam’s designs. 😉 Dang, check this coolness out HERE and HERE. I die. 😉 And the Lumberjack Love stamp set is adorable!

This is the set I used from Altenew: Halftone Thanks. I have more cards coming soon using this cool set!

The Wonky Stitched Rectangles are from My Favorite Things. 😉

Thanks for stopping in!
