Fun Wavy Patterns!

Happy Friday! Today I’m sharing a couple fun cards I made with the freshly released Paper Smooches Wavy Patterns die and the versatile coordinating Wavy Wishes stamp set. These stamps fit right into the pattern the die creates, and you can mix up the sentiments. ❤️! I have yet to crack the surface with possibilities! 
Love the movement! And these cutie birds that I colored  with Copics. 

This next card, I added an ombré happy whale from the Huge Hugs set. (I also used the coordinating dies for him.)
I really ❤️ the sentiment Happy Thoughts and am already planning to use it often. 

I made these cards weeks apart, and yet I used Distress Oxide Inks to blend on both backgrounds. Funny! The first one is Cracked Pistachio and the blue is Faded Jeans. They are fun to use! I’m pretty excited about the new, bright colors out, but am trying to wait on acquiring them. TRYING. Haaaa! 🙂

I finished both cards off with a little stitching and a couple of bits. 🙂

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you check out the new release from Paper Smooches!

Wishing you a happy day!

Even Miracles Take Time

Happy August! Great news, the NEW Paper Smooches AUGUST 2017 release is available HERE! 

I thought I’d pop in a share a card that made me laugh! I’m still waiting on my miracle to kick in this morning! 😉 Haaaaa! No seriously, I am! 😉 🙂
For this card, I used the new Wavy Patterns Dies to emboss the panel. I then stamped this fun sentiment from the new Magical Sampler. I finished it off with a favorite die of mine, the Cozy Coffee Die. ❤
Still makes me giggle!

Bee Strong! Adding a little coffee never hurts one’s strength! (Especially on Monday!) 😉

hawkins_jill_bee-strong_00_wmWhile I had the bees out, I made one other little card….though I can see the lovely overcast weather makes this look a bit yuck! The bee is carrying a pink heart <3. hawkins_jill_buzz_wm

Paper Smooches supplies: Bee die, Courteous Cuties 2, Cozy Coffee Die.

P.S. I am laughing because I forgot to trim a smidge off the right side of my first card, before taking the photos…can you see that? You just gotta love handmade.Haaaa! 🙂
