Freaking Amazing. MFT Sketch 284

Here’s my take on MFT Sketch Challenge #284. This challenge come from the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration Blog!photoI love to mix up colors, so I used Spearmint, Persimmon, Nightshift and Cement Gray. ahhhh 🙂

hawkins_jill_amazing_00_wmI die cut the chevron stripes and used the one in between as another strip. If you don’t snip them apart, you actually get three different chevron strips vs. two. Hopefully I can keep them together! I laid those up, then die cut them into the peek-a-boo circle. Inlaid that, die cut some lines, embossed on vellum, and stitched on the sentiment. LOVE the “You are Freaking Amazing” stamp. I always reach for it. 🙂

I took this photo both early this morning, and just this evening. Neither time grabbed the colors fantastically, but so it goes. A never-ending issue. 🙂hawkins_jill_amazing_wmMy card is made with supplies at My Favorite Things. Die-namics: Blueprints 13, Chevron Stripes, LJD Peek-a-boo Circle Windows, Basic Stitched Lines. Stamps: Amazing. Card stock: Spearmint, Persimmon, Cement Gray, Smooth White and Nightshift.

MFT Sketch 283: Coolest Pop!

Here’s my take on MFT Sketch Challenge #283. This challenge come from the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration Blog!photoI wanted to keep this simple, so I masked off a central area and stamped up a Dad’s Day card! 🙂 Of course, I rotated the sketch and rectangled it too. 😉

Merry and Bright

As mentioned previously, I give myself the pass on making our family Christmas cards. As much as I enjoy it, I sort of lose my mind somewhere along the production line. 🙂

Of course, time is even tighter in December, but I kept these very simple and managed them in one sitting. I mailed them out before Christmas, to my teammates! Whoot! 🙂 It’s the little victories!

hawkins_jill_merry&bright_06_wmI was also in a race with the mailman, so I snapped just a few quick photos. 🙂  hawkins_jill_merry&bright_wmWhile these cards are very similar, they are all slightly different. 🙂

hawkins_jill_merry&bright_00_wmFun with non-holiday supplies! Always fun to stretch what you have in different ways. 🙂

Don’t forget, there is a little time left to participate in Sketch Challenge #260 and over a week left for joining Color Challenge #36 on the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog!

hawkins_jill_warm wishes_wmOverall, I don’t have the die cuts for many of the stamps sets. But I splurged to get this one and I’m glad I did! I think I may need to acquire the London Mouse set too. Because, I love to die cut the buildings. 🙂hawkins_jill_warm wishes_00_wmThe new Die-namics, Basic Stitch Lines is awesome. Just sayin’. 🙂

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!

Another Sweet Sunday: #285

Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!! #285 starts kickin’ today!  🙂

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. 🙂

SSS Challenge #282

Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!! #282! This one is crazy versatile for your imagination! 🙂

Here’s this week’s sketch:

My card for the week: hawkins_jill_ms c_wmGetting ready for Back-to-School…and EARLY no less!! Wahhhoooooo!

The card base was stamped with Grout Gray polka dots, but overnight, I think the card stock absorbed the ink more than I anticipated. ha! 🙂 You can just barely make them out.

hawkins_jill_ms c_00_wmFor this panel’s background, I actually *stamped* the Abstract Stencil with the Field Day die ink on a card stock panel. The panel had been laying around my desk for a while and I finally used it! Double whahoo! 😛

My card was made with supplies from My Favorite Things: (background stamps rock!)
