Some Bunny…

Happy Weekend to you! I thought I’d pop in with a quick post sharing a cutie lil’ Taylored Expressions card!

This card cracks me up!! The little On A Hinge chick with swinging legs is enough to giggle, but then add some bunny ears from Flip the Script-Bunny Tag… gah! ❤

I colored this little guy with Copic Markers.

I’m pretty sure my son is going to get a kick out of this guy and his swinging legs! 🙂

You can find all my supplies and links to the Taylored Expressions Shop below:

Yay! Graduate!

Graduation season rolls on with this stinkin’ cute skunk and smart cookie from Lawn Fawn! 🙂

hawkins_jill_yay_wmPaired the Lawn Fawn Smart Cookie set & Stinkin’ Cute sets for a fun card! 🙂 Oh, I also used A Birdie Told Me for the speech bubble and die. 😉

I loosely watercolored the background with Distress Inks (Stormy Sky, Shaded Lilac, Seedless Preserves, and Mustard Seed). I masked, stamped, & colored the images with Copics. Then I fussy cut them, also using my college skills for X-Acto knife trimming so the cutie skunk could hold his diploma. LOL. Thousands well spent. 😉 Finished it up with some Wink of Stella sparkle, splats, stitching, some patterned paper and Lawn Trimmings.

I stamped a speech bubble inside the card, with the sentiment, “You’re One Smart Cookie”, but forgot to take the photo! Duh. I generally neglect the insides (the shame!), so I totally blitzed on remembering to share it this one time! Darn.

The current Lawnscaping Challenge is Distress Maniacs!! Distress inks rock! Check out all the fun HERE!

I guess Lawn Fawn is my go-to set for Graduations this year! 🙂 Yay! You can find my other recent card HERE. Super fun stuff!

Thanks for stopping by–have a great Wednesday!

Jill 🙂 P.S. It should be noted I used some purple. LOL!

The Places You’ll Flamin-GO!

Still snickering about this fun little Lawn Fawn set, Flamingo Together! The light bulb went on when I realized this flamingo wanted to graduate! 🙂

hawkins_jill_flamin-go_wmToooo fun! I paired the Flamingo Together set with the new Lawn Fawn Smart Cookie set, and bam,  a graduate! 🙂

I colored the images with Copics, and then blended on some Distress Ink for the background, finishing it up with some Wink of Stella sparkle, and a few Pretty Pink Posh sequins. The die cut frames are all from My Favorite Things.

hawkins_jill_flamin-go_00_wmThe tricky part is always thinking backward on masking. It’s not hard, by any means, but when it’s late at night, well, things aren’t always so streamlined in the brain, are they? LOL 🙂 Fortunately, I did have the forethought of stamping out a few of these at the same time. So, now I just need to color them!

Exciting that the current Lawnscaping Challenge is Sparkle It Up!! Perfecto for my sparkly graduate! Check out all the fun HERE!

Sidenote: As I was sparkling up my Flamingo’s hat and whatnot, my Wink of Stella pen had a surge of fluid roll out. It was close to ruining my card in the final touch. Ack! *sweats! I’m wondering if this common?

Lastly, thought I’d just share a picture of all the fun Lawn Fawn little ditties I recently finished and cut out, READY for cards! Whoot! 🙂 Cuties!

My Favorite Things meets Simple Stories!

bd5c3-mftandsimplestoriesToday I highly recommend checking out the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog: cardchallenges.com. In fact, if you haven’t see all the fun over there this week with Simple Stories, you may want to start HERE from Monday! Because: Our team has created some super fly stuff and Prizes. 🙂

The kind folks at Simple Stories were so generous in sending us some of their fabulously fun summery & rad goodies! I totally enjoy: So Rad! Let me tell you, it is Rad.

Here’s a card a made with So Rad and of course, some of My Favorite Things…including some of the fun new June goodness!

I’m a big fan of stickers, have been since I was a kid. I don’t tend to use them on my cards, but now I’m thinking…hmmmm? Why? Lol. These stickers are fabulous because you can also peel them up and re-stick them elsewhere, if you err. Ask me how I know! 😉

photoSketch Challenge #231 on My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration is kickin’ it today at MFT’s cardchallenges.com. Oh you know there is good stuff and good read over there. 🙂

Here’s this week’s sketch:MFT_WSC_231Here’s my take:

hawkins_jill_begin with yourself_WMOk. Really, this Abstract Cover Up is the bomb. OH my die cuts.

hawkins_jill_begin with yourself_00_WMI’m just warning you all now, this guy is going to be used A LOT! 🙂 Buckle up.

hawkins_jill_begin with yourself_0_WMI gave a few splatters to the inside. So 80’s. So fun. 😉

I squeezed in a second card. Because: Floatie & THAT sentiment. Gah! LOVE both!

hawkins_jill_miss you_wmI mean, really. How cute is this guy? 🙂

hawkins_jill_miss you_00_wmI gave his floatie some polka dots, but I’m pretty sure that doesn’t come through. 🙂
