Snow Bunny (Hill)!

Happy Sunday! I thought I’d pop in to share a few cards I made for a holiday gift! I think this little Neat and Tangled bunny, Bunny Slopes (and Bunny Slopes die) by Elena Roussakis is adorable!! Eeeep! I especially love it because I am not a skilled skier. Well, I’m not even sure I can call myself a skier? My very good friend can attest to this…. quite funny! 🙂

Eeeeeeeep!

All of these I colored with Copic Markers. I had some trouble blending my Orange/Peaches, but in the end, it’s all good. 😉

I just cut these little hills with my scissors and stitched them on at the end. Quick and simple!

I added THESE sequins for a little sparkly snow action. 🙂

For all of these, I just free cut some clouds from post-it notes and used those as a mask. I then used Distress Oxide inks and brushed those on. I used both Cracked Pistachio and Broken China.

These sentiments are (PERFECT) from one of my favorite N & T sets, Scandinavian Prints Christmas! Love this set by my friend Miriam! If you do too, you’ll enjoy THIS stencil as well. 🙂 I have yet to nab it myself. 🙂

I couldn’t decide which pics to use, so I figured I’d just share them all.  🙂

I made these to gift as a set. Maybe I should have made five then? Hmmmm…. I’m thinking now, I might just have to keep them and mail them individually? Bwwaaahahahahaa! 🙂 I have some friends that these would be perfect for!

Since it’s a gift set (now up for debate as I type this…) I’m entering it in the Neat & Tangled Little Tangles this month! I haven’t been able to play along for some time and I’ve missed it!  Check it out HERE–always fun!! 🙂

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you enjoy these little bunny cards as much as I do! Cuteness OVERLOAD! 🙂 ❤

Take care! Jill 🙂

Sending Good Vibes!

Good Monday Morning to you! I was up extra early today to squeeze in a full day before the eclipse! But the weather is calling for a cloudy day, so yikes!

Anywho, on with this fun card to give! ❤️


For this card, I used Neat & Tangled’s Schoolhouse Good Vibes, and also the Geomentric Blooms stencil with Fossilized Amber Oxide Ink. There are a couple of things I learned and I’d do differently next time, but I never know what I’m doing until I do it. My cards are thought through as I go. I don’t know if that’s good or bad? Probably both. 😉
 LOVE these little mice! I colored them with Copic markers. 🙂

I’m joining in the Little Tangles Challenge this month. I was excited to see the challenge was birthday, and thought I’d catch up on making a bunch of birthday cards. Well, so far I have the one here. LOL!! But there’s still time! So, we’ll see!   🙂

Check it out HERE! 🙂 And a BIG HAPPY 5TH Birthday to Neat & Tangled! How awesome and exciting is that!?

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week!

I’m squeaking in my entry to this month’s Little Tangles challenge….phew! 🙂 I’m so glad I made it!

Eeeeee they are CUTE!Little Tangles Challenge: Masking! Masking is such fun when you take off the mask and it’s like magic! 🙂

I stamped and masked off the embroidery hoop from Neat and Tangled’s Hand Stitched set (that I won! Hooray!) and stamped these cuties from My Favorite Nut. I then colored them with Copic Markers and added a heart from the My Favorite Nut dies. I thought it was a sweet little card to pop in the mail! 🙂

Have a great rest of the week!! 🙂

Hello Awesome Friend

Happy Wednesday! I sat down last night to make a couple of cards, and this was one I churned out. This Neat and Tangled stamp set, Scandinavian Prints, has so many possibilities. I kept this simple with some straight up stamping. It’s funny how I don’t do that much? LOL

I chose this one tiny stamp, and stamped it repeatedly. Every time I get out this set, my mind swirls with ideas! ❤ ! I masked the sentiment, and stamped it above and below the Awesome die. 🙂 I need a few dozen of these cards now!

I added some stitching and a few sequin discs to polish it off!

I’m sneaking this in for the Little Tangles Challenge: Color Combo Challenge! I just love the colors and wanted to make more with them! 🙂 You can find my first card HERE.Yum. Yum. Yum!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hola! I ❤ this sentiment from Neat and Tangled! 🙂

I used Neat and Tangled’s stamp set Good Vibes and their stencil Scoops, blending on Distress Inks. I then sprayed it with water to get a little movement, but apparently it wasn’t having it! Haaaa!

I wanted to get in on this month’s Little Tangles Challenge: Color Combo Challenge! Plenty of time for you to join in too! How awesome and tasty is this image below?!Yum! Happy Summer indeed!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week!

Stencils are Awesome

Happy Wednesday! I’m popping in today to share a card I whipped up with some Neat and Tangled goodies! 🙂

For this, I used Distress Oxide inks. I was trying to avoid them, but after trying a friend’s ink, well, here I am! (They blend like butta’!)  A shout out to my crafty friends for helping me acquire them #troublemakers 😉 🙂

Originally, I had this “Awesome” die cut all white, and I was done! As I got up from my desk to go sleep, I instead grabbed my sponge and rubbed on some Worn Lipstick Oxide ink across the top. Then, I was really going to bed. Nope, grabbed the Wink of Stella to add some glimmer, and topped it off with Glossy Accents. It was WAY late at night! Luckily, I didn’t ruin the card…I think I made it better! Phew! 😉 In the fog, I forgot to stitch the panel, but I’ll still call this a win! 🙂

I was so excited to receive this N & T stencil, Geometric Blooms, designed by my crazy talented friend, Miriam. I also used  Neat & Tangled’s Awesome die! This stencil is fantastic, and the possibilities are endless!! 🙂 I lucked into these great sequins from N & T too, Pink Lemonade Sequin Mix. Yum!

Squeaking this in for this month’s Little Tangles Challenge: Stencil! Wish I had could make a couple more entries, but tick-tock!

I was fortunate to win this stencil & sequins from a Neat & Tangled giveaway on Instagram! Super fun! Thank you, Neat and Tangled! ❤

Thanks for stopping by! The rest of the week is downhill, right? 🙂

My Little Nut

I had to make this card for my little nut 🙂 . He is going to think these little squirrels are so cute! ❤

hawkins_jill_lil-nutI watercolored a rainbow for the background. It went a little awry, but that is what happens with watercolor, right? hawkins_jill_lil-nut_

I’m joining in the Little Tangles Challenge: Rainbow! Love a rainbow!! I’d love to make another one.

ntI 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!! 🙂
