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.

My Favorite Things: Sketch #262

photoI thought it would be fun to play along with the MFT Sketch Challenge #262 on the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog. Fun stuff to see there!
Here’s my take: I wanted a Manly Valentine, if there is such a thing? πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_heart you_wmI was hoping to use some die cuts I already had for this Chunky Chevron Cover Up. I found them from making THESE cards!Β  #winning πŸ˜‰

hawkins_jill_heart you_1wm This second photo is redundant, but I couldn’t get a detail photo to turn out. So here’s the closest thing. Ha! πŸ™‚

My card is made with the following supplies at My Favorite Things: Die-namics: LJD All My Love, Thank you, Chunky Chevron Cover Up, Stripes Cover Up. Card stocks:Β  Factory Green, Steel Grey, Cherry Crisp, Smooth White, Silver Sparkle, Vellum.

Merry and Bright

As mentioned previously, I give myself the pass on making our family Christmas cards. As much as I enjoy it, I sort of lose my mind somewhere along the production line. πŸ™‚

Of course, time is even tighter in December, but I kept these very simple and managed them in one sitting. I mailed them out before Christmas, to my teammates! Whoot! πŸ™‚ It’s the little victories!

hawkins_jill_merry&bright_06_wmI was also in a race with the mailman, so I snapped just a few quick photos. πŸ™‚Β  hawkins_jill_merry&bright_wmWhile these cards are very similar, they are all slightly different. πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_merry&bright_00_wmFun with non-holiday supplies! Always fun to stretch what you have in different ways. πŸ™‚

Don’t forget, 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!

My Favorite Things: Sketch #260

photoMFT Sketch Challenge #260 starts on the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration Blog today! Bop on over to the MFT Card Challenges page to see what the DT made. I can guarantee they all rock. πŸ™‚

This week’s sketch:MFT_WSC_260Here is my first take this week:

hawkins_jill_shine bright_wmI love the pieces out of the newest Diagonal Quilt Square Cover Up. So I die cut a bunch of quilts, then used the pieces. πŸ™‚ I think I stuck a lot tighter to the sketch this week!! Ha! πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_shine bright_00_wmI made another card the other night. I had to use this cutie reindeer!!

hawkins_jill_cutethanks_wmBetween the happy jumping Santa, and this reindeer, this BB Jingle All the Way set earned its way into my heart. πŸ™‚ I think I’m going to add a little sparkle to that bright nose.

hawkins_jill_cutethanks_00_wmI used watercolors for these little cuties. The wood paper warms it up so sweetly. πŸ™‚

My Favorite Things: Sketch #257

photoMFT Sketch Challenge #257 begins today on the My Favorite Things Challenge & InspirationΒ Blog! Hope you can sneak in some crafty time and join us this week!! πŸ™‚

This week’s sketch:MFT_WSC_257Here is my take this week:

hawkins_jill_warmest thanks_wmI was scanning my supplies of what to use this week, and there were these little mice, in their winter warmth. πŸ˜‰ I’m also in a blending phase, so I wanted to do that. Haaa! πŸ˜‰ MFT Die inks are stellar for blending. Especially on the blending card. hawkins_jill_warmest thanks_00_wmΒ Photos do not do the Sparkle card stock justice. It’s soooo sparkly in person! Ahhh sparkle. πŸ™‚

I hope to be back later this week with another MFT card, time willing! The holidays are beginning to have their rippling effects on time… πŸ™‚ Thoroughly enjoyable, but ripples nonetheless.
