MFT Sketch 285. That is All.

Here’s my take on MFT Sketch Challenge #285. My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration Blog!photoI looked at the sketch, and all I could recall was linear, so I ran with that, as you can clearly tell. ๐Ÿ™‚

hawkins_jill_that is all_wmI inked up the Distressed Patterns stamp in all different colors. Sometimes I pick them out in advance. Often, I wing it as I go. This being a prime example. I’m not sure which tactic is better? But I tend to get more of an atypical combo if I wing it! ๐Ÿ™‚hawkins_jill_that is all_00_wmI do love me some lines. And this sentiment. It is far from being a clear stamp anymore. ๐Ÿ˜‰

My card is made with supplies at My Favorite Things. Die-namics: Blueprints 24, Stamps: Penguins in Paradise and Distressed Patterns. Card stock: Smooth White.

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. ๐Ÿ™‚ 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! ๐Ÿ™‚ You can check out my card I made previously with this set HERE.

MFT Color Challenge #35

Today, Color Challenge #35 is on the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog! I hope you can hop on over to see what the rest of the Design Team made. Each person really brings their own unique style to their projects. I eagerly wait to read the posts myself! ๐Ÿ™‚MFT_ColorChallenge_PaintBook_35Here is my card for this Color Challenge:

hawkins_jill_remember that_wmThe Amazing stamp set is a staple sentiment set. It’s font is simple (my fave!), and therefore can fit gracefully into any card type. And the Stitched Stars STAX is another staple. Products like these, are crafty money well spent in my book because of their versatility. Dig that. ๐Ÿ™‚ hawkins_jill_remember that_00_wmI have another Color Challenge card waiting to be photographed. So I’ll post that one very soon too. I just can’t get a decent photo without the daylight. And well, it’s 10pm. Haaaa!! See you back for that card soon!

My card is made with the following supplies by My Favorite Things:
