You in Spandex Scares Me :)

I’m using these cute little stamps from the Sweet Stamp Shop again. I love this little set!

I thought this would be fun for Father’s Day… to give to my husband. 🙂 I used my Kuretake watercolors for a quick coloring, and then did all the die cutting.hawkins_jill_spandex_wm

So enjoy the little funny and punny stamps from Sweet Stamp Shop! 🙂 You can check out my card I made previously with this set HERE.

The dies I used are all from My Favorite Things. 🙂

My Favorite Things: Sketch #253

photoMFT Sketch Challenge #253 is jumpin‘ on the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration Blog!

This week’s sketch:

MFT_WSC_253Here is my take this week:

hawkins_jill_smore fun_00_wmEEEEEEEEEE!! S’mores! So tasty and super fun to die cut for cards.hawkins_jill_smore fun_wmI stamped up a second card for this Sketch because I had to use this little doggy. I initially wanted this Top Dog set specifically for this dog. Too cute:

hawkins_jill_it's been_wmI colored this pup with Copics, straight up. No shading, no nothing. I don’t know that I have ever done that before and I’m not quite sure why? LOL. 🙂 It’s weird how this card photo shows variation in the brown, because in person, it’s a solid, even brown. Wacky. My best skill is not card photography, but I have been working on it little by little. 🙂

My Favorite Things: Sketch #252

photoMFT Sketch Challenge #252 begins rockin’ on the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration Blog!

This week’s sketch:

MFT_WSC_252Here is my take this week:

hawkins_jill_you are cool_wmYum! I am a big fan of all Laina Lamb’s designs each month. They are always delicious aren’t they!? I may need to make a card with all of them on it! Hmm and mmmm! 🙂hawkins_jill_you are cool_00_wmI pieced together different strips of card stock and then die cut it all with the Snow Drifts Cover-up. Another one I can’t stop using! 🙂


I squeezed in a second card this week because: Halloween!!!

hawkins_jill_trick or treat_00_wm I went a little STAR crazy on this one. If I had more time to redo, I’d have omitted the stars from the Trick or Treat die cut. But, alas, had to catch the daylight to photograph. 😉hawkins_jill_trick or treat_wmHappy Halloween! Trick or Treat’ers, Enjoy!! 🙂

MFT Sketch #250 AND Holiday Tag!

photoMFT Sketch Challenge #250 begins on the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration Blog today!

This week’s sketch:

MFT_WSC_250Here is my take this week:

hawkins_jill_elfie_wmI sort of stretched the center panels wider and shifted the feature element (in this case, the Elf’s selfie) to the side. I then used the letters for the banner element. Just a little creative interpretation right? 🙂

*elfie! I still giggle.

hawkins_jill_elfie_00_wmThis week is also an exciting, fun-filled Handmade Holiday celebration on the MFT Blog!

PrintBe sure to hop over there and catch up! Today, there are Tags-O-Plenty from several members of the Design Teams. I love tags! Here is my contribution:

hawkins_jill_joy tag_reWMOh my word–How much do I love the way the Four Way Chevron die cut with the Snow Drifts Cover Up and then with the Stitched Tag. I pulled it out of my machine after all the cutting, and just sort of gasped! LOL 🙂 Be sure to go join in the fun!

MFT Sketch #244

photoHey hey! MFT Sketch Challenge #244 is on My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog today!

This week’s sketch:MFT_WSC_244My card for this week:

hawkins_jill_dew_WMSoda POP! And DEW!? Dewey love? Yes we Dew! 🙂 haaaaa! Laina rocks great designs. I also completely enjoy this stencil and cover up. Ahhh September new releases! 🙂

hawkins_jill_dew_00_WM

I have a second card to share using this sketch. It is quite a loose take. I used the building as the “tag” and went from there. I usually look at a sketch to start and don’t look at it again. That’s how things get a little wacky, often. 🙂

hawkins_jill_you're sweet friend_wmI decided I had *medium* control issues after making this. The watercolors want to flow, not be controlled. 😉

hawkins_jill_you're sweet friend_00_wmSuch a fun set nonetheless. And I’ll keep practicing. 🙂

My go at it: I am so digging Tropical Teal right now! 🙂

hawkins_jill_M_wmI know, I used the Four Way Chevron Cover-up again…but I had to! It’s awesome!! 🙂

hawkins_jill_M_00_wmIn my continuing effort to make quicker cards now-and-again (ha!), I made this one below with remnants and pieces made previously for other cards. That sure makes it quicker!! LOL 😉hawkins_jill_good things_wmThen, I accidentally starting stitching in the wrong place. Soooo, that placement was decided. Nuts. I’m not sure I’m loving it overall, but there are some takeaways for sure 😉hawkins_jill_good things_00_wm
