MFT Sketch 281

Here’s my take on MFT Sketch Challenge #281 (and inadvertently,  MFT Color Challenge #45)! These challenges come from the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration Blog!photoI stamped and practiced coloring a bunch of unicorns this past week, so used one of those. 🙂

hawkins_jill_wishing unicorns_wmMy son picked the colors for me to use as I was coloring along. I wasn’t sure at first, but in the end, I think he might have a secret color talent! LOL!! 🙂

When I put this all together later that night, I realized it was the Color Challenge colors! WHAT are the chances!!!? So anyway, throwing it in that pool too. 🙂

hawkins_jill_wishing unicorns_00_wm The sparkle, which never photographs, is really what make these unicorns POP! Too bad it isn’t reflected in the photo. A pretty basic card, but fun to give to someone! 🙂

My card is made with supplies at My Favorite Things. Die-namics: Stitched Mini Scallop Square and Rectangle STAX. Stamps: BB Magical Unicorns.

hawkins_jill_happy birthday_wmI kept this one simple too, diecutting and blending ink into the new MFT Stencil Chunky Herringbone.

hawkins_jill_happy birthday_00_wmThis was definitely a card where I looked at the sketch, started working, and didn’t refer to the sketch again. But, I’m sure you can see the sketch’s inspiration overall, right? 😉

My card is made with supplies at My Favorite Things. Die-namics: Brushstroke Birthday Greetings, Stitched Rectangle Frames, Blueprints 23, Brushstroke Birthday Greetings. Razzle Berry, Orange Fizz, Cornflower, and Green Room dye ink.

MFT Sketch 268

I thought I wouldn’t make it this week, but here I am! MFT Sketch Challenge #268! (My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog.)photo

I hope to be back ASAP with a better photo, but I have to use this not-so-good one for now! 🙂

hawkins_jill_celebrate in color_wmLines! Lots of lines. I also enjoy these newer rainbow sentiments and dies. I’m looking forward to really taking them out for a spin! 🙂 I can’t say I love the way the spatters stuck on this. I’ve been using so much watercolor paper, I forgot how blah they look on regular stock.

My card is made with all supplies at My Favorite Things: Die-namics, Stamps, & Card stock.

Sending Hugs

Yesterday, I shared cards using non-holiday products for making Holiday cards. Today, I’m sharing a card I made using holiday products for non-holiday cards. 🙂 Did you follow that? I barely did! 😉 (Click HERE for yesterday’s post.)

I made this to send some healing hugs a little while back.

hawkins_jill_sendinghugs_wmI used the Winter Wonderland stamp set & dies. When I saw these little envelopes and mailbox, well, that was that. 🙂 It’s one of those stamp sets that I’m glad I have the matching dies for.hawkins_jill_sendinghugs_00_wm Fun with holiday supplies! Stretching those too!! 🙂 And of course, the Sketched Chevron Background stamp…which I think I have used on at least 90% of my cards since it arrived. 😉

There is a little time left to participate in Sketch Challenge #260 and over a week left for joining Color Challenge #36 on the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog! Tomorrow is the last MFT Sketch for 2015!! Wait, what?! Wow.
