Happy Thursday! Thought I’d pop in quick with the finished card I started for The Daily Marker 30 Day challenge! 🙂
This is a great woodblock stamp of Chicago by Hero Arts. 🙂 It is called Destination Chicago.
I used Distress Inks for these colors. I think I’m trying to combat the winter blues with rainbows lately 😉 . I like the way it turned out in the end. And as I’ve said many a times, you just NEVER know with watercolors! 🙂
Thanks for stopping by!
I had to make this card for my little nut 🙂 . He is going to think these little squirrels are so cute! ❤
I watercolored a rainbow for the background. It went a little awry, but that is what happens with watercolor, right?
I’m joining in the Little Tangles Challenge: Rainbow! Love a rainbow!! I’d love to make another one.
I colored these little cuties for Kathy’s The Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge. If you haven’t joined in, I recommend it! Kathy is a star for keeping it going and dropping smiles everywhere. You can find my attempts on Instagram here –> jilldhawkins . If you join in once or twice, it’s all good! I’m wondering if I’ll complete another full 30 days myself?! Here’s hoping! 🙂
This stamp set is Neat & Tangled’s My Favorite Nut.
Have a great week!! 🙂
When I saw Ellen Hutson’s Mix It Up Challenge this month was with Paper Smooches, well, I had to jump in! I was so excited to mix it up with some super faves 🙂 . I’m hoping I can sneak in another soon, since I have many things splayed across my desk already. Haaaa! 🙂
Oh my word!! I cannot handle how cute this little bear is with these giant PS glasses! 🙂 I think he might be struggling a bit, since his treat is upside down. 😉
I clear heat embossed this little guy. I colored in the Sunshine with both Copic markers and colored pencils. I could not decide how I wanted it to look! 🙂 I admittedly snickered when I finished this last night. Such fun! 🙂
For this card, I used Ellen Hutson’s All Inside (and dies), Bear Ware (and dies), and Warm Fuzzies. From Paper Smooches, I used the Rainbow Die and Glasses dies. SOOOO fun! 🙂
I’m entering this in the Ellen Hutson March Mix It Up Challenge: Paper Smooches…I’m actually early this time, so be sure you check it out too!! 🙂
Thanks for stopping by! Have an AWESOME sunshiney weekend!!
I was excited to ink up these new little cutie deer from the new Ellen Hutson Oh Deer set last night. I was anxiously awaiting Julie Ebersole’s new sets, and of course, she did not disappoint. 🙂
I say “oh dear” a lot, and I thought it would be punny to make a little *party animal* scene. 🙂
I used a silver ink to stamp the background “confetti”, but when it was all said and done, it doesn’t have the sparkle I was hoping for. That’s ok, it’s still festive looking! Especially because she has lost control of her party hat. Haaaa! 🙂
I also used Ellen Hutson’s Bear Ware and dies for the fun party hats and cupcake! I clear heat embossed and colored on Bristol paper with my Zig markers, before die cutting everything out. I then used some Tumbled Glass and Peacock Feathers Distress Ink for the aqua background.
I’m entering this in the Essentials by Ellen February Pin-Sights Challenge. Check it out. I always love the jump start of inspiration!
Aqua is always good thing! 🙂
Thanks for stopping by! Have a GREAT week!:)
I could spend an entire day using Neat & Tangled’s Hexastar Cover Plate! I always think I will trim it up and use it differently. And eventually I will, but I love to inlay it! So that’s what happens when I sit down to use it 🙂
I also used their awesome Awesome die. 🙂 Can you use the same adjective to describe the noun? Haaaaa! 🙂
This is a dark navy color and a bright flamingo pink. Quite spring like, and fitting for the most bazarro warm weather we have been having here this February! 😉
I’m joining in the Little Tangles Challenge by the skin of my teeth! Check it out HERE.
Also, my friend Miriam, who designed this Hexastar Cover plate I used above, designed more gems for Neat & Tangled that just released… THIS and THIS! So brilliant! Both are on my wish list, along with a dozen other things. Always, right?! 🙂
Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
I think this little bunny is so stinkin’ cute with his floppiness <3. I’ve been wanting to use him in bulk. 🙂
When I saw the current Ellen Hutson’s January Pin Sight Challenge, I thought now is the time! The photo inspiration directly and indirectly refers to COZY! ❤ Perfect! 🙂
I used Ellen Hutson’s All Inside, Bear Ware and Warm Fuzzies! I colored these cuties all with Copic Markers, and die cut them out. I then used some Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink to add a little watercolor to the panel. I heat embossed the sentiment and stitched it right on. To finish, I matted the panel and put it all together. This took a little bit of time overall, but in the end, the cute result was worth it! 🙂

Thanks for stopping by! Have a GREAT week!:)
Sometimes you get an idea in your head and it has to come out! This is one of those! 🙂 Love these cutie bees!!! ❤
Bee Strong! Adding a little coffee never hurts one’s strength! (Especially on Monday!) 😉
While I had the bees out, I made one other little card….though I can see the lovely overcast weather makes this look a bit yuck! The bee is carrying a pink heart <3.
Paper Smooches supplies: Bee die, Courteous Cuties 2, Cozy Coffee Die.
P.S. I am laughing because I forgot to trim a smidge off the right side of my first card, before taking the photos…can you see that? You just gotta love handmade.Haaaa! 🙂
Happy Monday! 🙂
