A handful of cards today!

Happy Sunday! Today I’m just here to share a smattering of cards I’ve made recently. I thought I’d just share them all here at once. Many of these products are still available over at Ellen Hutson , but some were either a promotion or they are retired. I always think you can likely find a substitute if you’re interested in using an idea here as a launching pad. ๐Ÿ™‚

First up, I have a couple Avery Elle cards! ๐Ÿ™‚

This first one is ready for Father’s Day this year–perfect for my hubby! So shhhhh don’t show him yet. ๐Ÿ™‚ It uses the following from Avery Elle:ย Avery Elle Swell Stamp, Burst Elle-Ments, Avery Elle Sea-Prise! Stamps, Avery Elle Celebraytion Stamps (this one for the second card).

(The Happy Father’s Day is from well loved, but much older AE set.)

I colored everything with Copic Markers. The background I stamped with two different inks and pieced it allllll together. So fun how it turned out.

Next up, I created this one with the Burst Elle-Ments from Avery Elle… a long time FAVORITE die! (I used this same die to create the “porthole” above.)

I used pretty much the same Avery Elle goodies here, mixing it up a bit to create a card for our son. This sentiment below is from Avery Elle’s Celebraytion Stamps.

Next up, I have a couple cards using goodies from the Stamp Market: Hello Stencil, Leaves Stencil.

For both of these, I blended on background colors over these fun stencils and then added the Hi and Hellos on top. ๐Ÿ™‚

I like this repeating hello in just black and white, but I think coloring it could be super fun too!

Next up, I created a couple Spring Hi Cards. ๐Ÿ™‚ These are perfect to pop in the mail!

I always like the yellow and green blend…it never fails me. ๐Ÿ™‚

I used some Distress Inksย and some Distress Oxide Inks.

I had a lot of fun making these cards and I hope you too have some time to create soon!

So fun!ย Here are all the products that are available now and links again:

Avery Elle: Swell Stamp, Burst Elle-Ments, ย Sea-Prise! Stamps, Celebraytion Stamps.

The Stamp Market: Hello Stencil, Leaves Stencil.

That’s all I have for today! Now I am heading outside as we have unusually and VERY unseasonable warm weather here today….before three days of snow. Yikes! ๐Ÿ™‚

Take care– Jill ๐Ÿ™‚

Taylored Expressions: May Mini Release!

Welcome to a fun extra post for Taylored Expressions May Mini Release! All the new products for this cute release are available over at Taylored Expressions now!

My first card features the NEW Little Monsters stamp set. These little guys are so silly!

eeeeep! How cutie are they? I made a fun and splashy watercolor background by adding water to the panel and then dropping Taylored Expressions watercolors on there.

I love the fun bright colors on this one! ๐Ÿ™‚

My second card features the new Inky Fingers: Monsters set. I think these little fingerprint sets are the sweetest and so does our son! He’ll be getting inky sometime soon to make some cards for his Dad and Grandpas! ๐Ÿ™‚

Love these little guys peeking out! I was intending to put google eyes on them, of course, and then forgot! ha! I am actually going to give this one to our son. shhhhh! ๐Ÿ™‚

Both of these new sets are perfect for making Father’s Day cards, but I also completely enjoy that you can use them for any occasion or even for no occasion at all! ๐Ÿ™‚ *Just Because* is my favorite occasion. ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy Dad’s Day!

I had some fun mixing up some Technique Tuesday supplies, to make a cute Dad’s Day card!

hawkins_jill_fave dad_wmMy Dad doesn’t wear a bow tie, but I thought this made the little big bird that much more fun! ๐Ÿ™‚

hawkins_jill_fave dad_00_wmI stamped, die cut, and colored with Copic markers. Love these little birds!

I used the following Technique Tuesday supplies: Postage Card die, Chicks Rule, Summer (glasses die), and Man Day.

Here’s to all the great Dad’s out there! ๐Ÿ™‚
