My Beaker Bubbles; MFT Sketch #263

photoAnother week, another MFT Sketch Challenge. Sketch #263 on the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog. Yana’s guest projects over there this month are fun!! πŸ™‚


Here’s my take: Love. This. Chemistry. ❀
hawkins_jill_my beaker1_wm
I stamped gray on gray here, but the ink really soaked into the card stock overnight. Wacky.

Also, I believe this is a flask, not a beaker. But I color owls blue. So, you know. All is fair in creative endeavors, right? πŸ˜‰

hawkins_jill_my beaker_00_wmLaina’s newly released sets for January make me so very happy! The minute I saw it, I knew there was Undeniable Chemistry! πŸ™‚

My card is made with the following supplies at My Favorite Things: Die-namics: LLD Chemistry Set, Basic Edges, File Folder Edges, Wonky Stitched Rectangle STAX (LOVE!), Stitched Fishtail Banners. Stamps: Undeniable Chemistry. Card stock and Inks.

Thanks for stopping in!

Another Sweet Sunday: #285

Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!! #285 starts kickin’ today!Β  πŸ™‚

Here’s this week’s sketch:

Here is my card for the week:

hawkins_jill_bushel_wmOh this Birdie Brown set is so darn cute. Perfect with its fall touches. I colored it with Copics on Kraft. Tricky because you cannot saturate the card stock like you would with a blending card. It’s a light touch or bleeding occurs. πŸ™‚

MFT Sketch #239

Here is this week’s sketch:MFT_WSC_239This is my card for the week:

hawkins_jill_hope your day_00_wmI so enjoy this little sunny dude! πŸ™‚ The Abstract stencil and background…well, I’ve mentioned my adoration of these many-a-times too! I stamped and embossed the Build-able Blooms for the sun. It ended up a little more subtle than intended, but, alas πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_hope your day_wmI squeaked in a second card. This one was made in probably five different sit-downs, so it feels a bit disjointed. But, meh, I think it’s kinda fun still πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_don't know_wm…and I think my stitching went a bit awry πŸ™‚

How much do I enjoy these new background stamps!!? πŸ™‚hawkins_jill_wishbig_00_wmI used the Wink of Stella to brush over the sentiment giving it a little something, but darn, that thing is hard to photograph, especially with the added acetate and shiny stars! Ha!! I think I’d just heat emboss it next time πŸ˜‰

Blueprints 26: Oh yes!

I enjoyed making a second card with this sketch. I made these a week+ apart, but geesh, are there similarities or what? πŸ˜‰

hawkins_jill_enjoy_wmThis Balloon Strings background makes my crafty heart go pitter-patter. What fun this can be! πŸ™‚

Here is this week’s sketch:MFT_WSC_234Here’s my take:

hawkins_jill_even though_0wmFlowers. Again. Unbelievable. πŸ™‚

I twisted the sketch a bit, die cut the background pattern, inked it, and tried to piece it all back in the same way. Tricky πŸ˜‰ .
