Pi Delivery! :)

I think I have a punny problem? Haaaaa! πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_pi multi_00_wmLawn Fawn stamps are puntastically pun for punage. So I cannot (obviously) resist. Plus, with their Alpha sets, it’s so easy to put everything together. (Well, this card took me a couple of days, because time is not my friend, but that is neither here nor there. LOL πŸ™‚ )

hawkins_jill_pi multi_wmI used Lawn Fawn’s new stamp sets: Cutie Pie and Home for the Holidays. πŸ˜‰ I used Harold’s ABCs for the sentiment once again. That set can’t be beat! πŸ™‚ Oh wait, there’s a pun waiting to happen in there….beat|beet! LOL! πŸ™‚

I’m also excited I got to play along with the current Color Throwdown Challenge #408! Check that out HERE! (I combined the Red and Yellow to make the Orange. Shhhh) πŸ™‚

(The stitched Rectangle die is from My Favorite Things. Blueprints!! πŸ™‚ )

Thanks for stopping by–hope your day is full of pun! Seriously, I canNOT turn it off. πŸ˜‰

Hello Color!

Here’s my take on MFT Sketch Challenge #286. My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration Blog!photoI made a horizontal card which, feels a little foreign to me nowadays. πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_hello2_wmI used this MFT diagonal coverup, so the sketch took an angle by default. πŸ˜‰

hawkins_jill_hello2_00_wmI die cut everything and then did some stitching. Finally, I added glossy accents to all the letters. I was on the fence about doing that, but it always adds a little pop of fun, I think. If only I didn’t get hand cramps from squeezing my Glossy Accents bottle. Haaaa! πŸ™‚

Bonus! I used the colors from the Color Throwdown Challenge this week–#398! When I saw that awesome combo this week, I was hoping to get in on it πŸ™‚ Success! So summery and spunky! Check out their Color Challenge this (and every) week HERE.

My card is made with supplies at My Favorite Things. Die-namics: Stitched Cover Up Companion Diagonal, and the Highrise Lower Case Alphabet. Card stock: Smooth White, Black Licorice, Limelight, Lemon Drop, Razzle berry, and Cherry Crisp.

Color Throwdown #392 :)

Enjoying my second week guesting over at the Color Throwdown this month!

Color Throwdown

This week is much more masculine than last week, though I fully believe you can make this girly sooo easily! πŸ™‚

Here are this week’s colors for #392:IMG_5533I certainly DIG this combo! πŸ™‚

Here’s my take:

hawkins_jill_super cool_wmThis Robot is one of my favorite TT stamps! I thought I’d go back to some repetitive stamping and loose watercolor. This would be quick to make in bulk. Wish I had! πŸ™‚ Ha!hawkins_jill_super cool_00_wmAnd of course, added some googley eyes! πŸ™‚

This card was made with the Favorite Human & Fan-tastic sets from Technique Tuesday.

Be sure to hop over and see what everyone made this week! Fun fun! πŸ™‚

Throwing Down! :)

A fun month ahead, as I have the pleasure to Guest over at the Color Throwdown this month!

Color Throwdown

I love seeing my IG feed on Wednesdays because of the consistency of color cards these ladies post for this challenge! (That yellow and blue last week… <3!)

Here are this week’s colors for #391:

IMG_5532Oooo that ^ says nothing but SPRING! πŸ™‚

Here’s my take:

hawkins_jill_happymom_wmMother’s Day is this Sunday and I’m suddenly hoping no Mother in my family reads my blog, because: Spoiler Alert! πŸ˜‰

hawkins_jill_happymom_00_wmThese flower circles are made with the newly released Beautiful Bouquet from Technique Tuesday. This stamp would be perfecto for wedding cards! I mean, perfecto! Quick and easy, or get in there, and get your detail on! πŸ™‚

I stamped the bouquet and die cut it into circles. Then I chose to do a quick watercolor with the CTD colors. The hardest part is arranging the circles, right!? πŸ™‚

I also used these two Technique Tuesday sets for the sentiment: Be Happy (<–awesomesauce) and Mom’s Day.

Be sure to hop over and see what their whole team made! Sure to be happiness with these colors! πŸ™‚
