This card ended up pretty simple in the end and nothing like I sat down to do. I always think that’s funny! šŸ™‚

I die cut both the die cuts I used, and I think the result was good! šŸ™‚ My stitching went a little wrong, but I just added more to make it work. Ha!

MFT Challenges, Another Twofer

Here’s my take on MFT Sketch Challenge #308 and Color Challenge #56! My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration Blog <<<<<<.photo Once again, I’m able to combine the two!

hawkins_jill_dinomiteThis little dino from You’re Rawr-some, is a little cutie! I especially love the T-Rex and his sentiment. I can’t wait to use him next! šŸ™‚ I used Zig Clean Color pens to watercolor her, and Distress ink for the background I masked off.hawkins_jill_dinomite_00I wanted to use this color combo, but was thinking Holiday card. Aren’t we all?! <3! But then, I took a right turn and made a chicky dino card instead. There is some sparkle (that never photographs) in the tree/plant/hearts, that in person, adds just the right touch.Ā  IĀ  had to cut off the grass I was originally using for the sentiment. It was too *all up in the dino’s grill*. LOL šŸ™‚

Here’s my take on MFT Sketch Challenge #305 and Color Challenge #56! My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration Blog.photo

 

 Thought it would be fun to the combine the two!

I am a fan of the funky Fuse Green. šŸ™‚  Basically I die cut, stamped, and scored this card base, putting it all together with foam tape. I changed the oval to a circle, only because I like circles better! Ha!!

Hedgehugs | MFT Sketch 302

Here’s my take on MFT Sketch Challenge #302! My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration Blog! Wow, I barely missed a few MFT Sketch Challenges in over a 1.5 years, and then I missed a lot of them! Ah, Life. ā¤ šŸ˜‰photoI just enjoyed an awesome crafty weekend full of laughs, and hugs, and craftiness! I am having a hard time adjusting back to reality. šŸ™‚ To hug your crafty friends in person is priceless, and then I met so many new friends too. Just AWESOME and so heartwarming! ā¤

Anywho, they were all generous to share their stamps, so I borrowed these, and made this cutie card. šŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_hedgehugs_wmThis little guy! Too fun! šŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_hedgehugs_00_wmI used Copic markers to color him, and kept the rest pretty clean and simple.

hello

I remember watching the MFT Superstar Design contest last year and thought how much fun it looked to participate. I was excited to see year two of the contest this year. As time goes, well, I’m barely sneaking one in, but here it is!

PrintI do love a colorful card! šŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_hello-bright_00_wmSome good ol’ die cutting of the die cut. Good times. šŸ™‚hawkins_jill_hello-bright_wmFor this, I first die cut the Four Way Chevron and inlaid that. Then I cut that panel with the Chunky Chevron Cover Up. I put down the Chunky Chevron panel and glued on all the Chevron bits in and removed it. The letters are the HIgh Rise Alphabet. (A long time fave!) I added a little stitching to finish it off, and whammo, done! šŸ™‚

I admittedly almost binned this one, because it seemed too busy. But in the end, I kept going, and eventually warmed to it a bit. šŸ™‚

I’m going to hop over there and check out some of the entries soon! I love a good contest–so much talent! šŸ™‚ Check it all out HERE.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello, Sunshine | MFT Sketch 294

Here’s my take on MFT Sketch Challenge #294! My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration Blog! It’s so worth hopping over there to read Susan’s posts! You will not be disappointed. Ever. šŸ™‚photoGeesh, I almost missed this week’s sketch. I thought about it a few times and then bam, it’s Monday night! Phew. Squeaking in with this little number.

hawkins_jill_hello sunshine_wmI stamped and embossed some of the stamping. Then I watercolored in the image and background with my Zig markers, via an acrylic block. Sometimes, that just works better for me, depending on the look I’m going for.

hawkins_jill_hello sunshine_00_wmI mixed up the elements of the sketch a bit, since the chameleon had to be on the right, for tail purposes. šŸ™‚

MFT Color Challenge #51

Here’s my take onĀ MFT Color Challenge #51! These challenges come from the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration Blog!

I thought I would use the Happy Birthday Centerpieces die cut, and change it up a smidgen. šŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_HB_wmIt has a bit of an 80’s feel to it, doesn’t it? šŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_HB_00_wmAnd now that I have these die cuts in all four colors, I am ready to make 3 more cards!! šŸ™‚ Bonus! šŸ™‚
