Technique Tuesday: Christmas in August!

A new month, a new bunch of stamps and dies from Technique Tuesday ! They can all be found HERE! Not only are Christmas stamps in this release, but lots of camera-y goodness and of course, the latest flower. πŸ™‚

Today, I’ll share the Christmas cards I made because they make me laugh! And I NEED to make more…so hoping this gets me going! πŸ™‚

Both cards use awesomely funny new sentiments from this Dear Santa set. Crack. Me. Up. πŸ™‚

I stamped this on kraft and colored with colored pencils. I also used the new planning set, Christmas Doodles ( ❀ these little doodles!) for stamping a tone on tone background for this card base. The die is a favorite go-to: Postage Card Die.

This next card, I also use the same Dear Santa set, but also I used the newly released, Spirit of December. A versatile set with simple images (aka, not intimidating) and great sentiments for scrapbook use (and ALWAYS cards)! πŸ˜‰

I colored the images with Copic markers and added some washi tape along the bottom before stitching the panel on.

How super funny is this sentiment?! LOL! How many of these could I send out? Bwwwaaahahhaa! πŸ˜‰

Be sure to check out ALL the fun new stuff from Technique Tuesday HERE! It’s a release I can’t wait to get out and use some more!Β  πŸ™‚

Have a great Sunday!

Enjoy- Jill πŸ™‚

Good Tidings

Good Tidings to you! Following up on yesterday’s post, I thought I’d share a card I made with the new Paper Smooches Decorate a Tree die. This is a little more conventional use of this die, unless of course, you consider the colors! πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_good-tidings_wmThe little squiggle of garland that floats down the tree & the star can be used in many more fun ways. Love that.

hawkins_jill_good-tidings_00_wmIf you missed my post yesterday, check it out HERE. I used this die in a much different way! πŸ™‚ My other November release Paper Smooches posts can be found HERE, HERE, and HERE.

This great sentiment is from Paper Smooches new Be Merry stamp set.

See you back here tomorrow! πŸ™‚

More Paper Smooches fun!

Surprise, I’m back today with one more card using the fun November Paper Smooches release! The DT Blog Hop is bumped up to tomorrow, Wednesday, so I wanted to squeeze this one more in today!

Apparently, this month, I was all about mixing up the Christmas colors. Be sure to check out my previous posts, which I will link to at the bottom.

This card uses the new Triangle Tree Die from Paper Smooches. This die has some mega possibilities too! I have a bunch of cards unfinished on my desk with this one! Some can be finished, some were just experiments gone awry. πŸ˜‰

hawkins_jill_we-wish_wmThis card is a bit different, and is really non-holiday. I thought the geometric fun of this die was great to mix it up a bit! I also used the new Christmas Tree Die words on this. And a heart from another Paper Smooches die. ❀

You can find some of my previous November Paper Smooches posts HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE. Phew. πŸ™‚

Be sure to head back here tomorrow for the Paper Smooches DT Hop! I am excited to be filling in again for December, and cannot WAIT to share some of the new release. ❀ !! Such a pleasure to take part in the Paper Smooches fun! πŸ™‚

Thanks again for stopping by! πŸ™‚

We Wish You…

I have a few more Paper Smooches cards to share, ramping up to the DT Hop on Thursday! Did you check out the November Paper Smooches releases!? ❀

For this card, I thought it would be fun to go rogue on the traditional Christmas colors. I mixed it up, big time! πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_merry-christmas_wmThis card uses the new Christmas Tree Die, that is both a tree and words! Double the fun! Plus, I love that this PS die says *We*. I think that’s fun to send from the whole fam. πŸ™‚hawkins_jill_merry-christmas_00_wmI first cut strips of card stock and pieced them all together. Then I die cut the words out of that and black card stock, and inlaid the black. Pretty cool look with this die! πŸ™‚

Hope your weekend was a good one! Be sure to hop back here tomorrow for more. My previous Paper Smooches posts for this release can be found HERE and HERE.

Have a great week!
