My go at it: I am so digging Tropical Teal right now! πŸ™‚

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

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 πŸ˜‰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 πŸ˜‰hawkins_jill_good things_00_wm

PrintToday’s Lesson: Hard vs. soft – For every hard line or edge you place on a card, the design is balanced by some softness, whether it be from a texture (like a ribbon) or a shape (like a circle); too much hard or soft might not work.

Here’s my take on this lesson:

hawkins_jill_for you_wmIt is definitely a literal take on this lesson, being that I used soft felt and all πŸ˜‰ But my thinking was the angles added an edge.hawkins_jill_for you_00_wmIf you missed my cards from earlier lessons this week, you can click on these links: Monday & Tuesday.

MFT Summer School: Asymmetry

MFT_SummerSchool3_MFTTVMy Favorite Things: Summer School Session Three rolls on! Day 2.
Print

Symmetry balanced proportions and Asymmetry The placement of non-identical forms to either side of a balancing point in a way that the two sides seem to be of the same visual weight but aren’t.

You want to pop over to the MFT Blog to be schooled. These lessons are well put together by Susan. πŸ™‚

Here’s my take on the lesson: Asymmetry.

hawkins_jill_lean on me_wmI’m all about symmetry in architecture. But there’s something about card making that makes it fun to rebel. πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_lean on me_00Hope you can check out all the fun on the My Favorite Things blog this week. The design teams have surely made plenty of cards to see and link to! A plethora of Inspiration!

MFT Sketch #240

photoMFT Sketch Challenge #240 on My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration begins rockin’ today!

Here is this week’s sketch:MFT_WSC_240This is my card for the week: One of my favorite Sketch cards to date. LOVE these dies.

hawkins_jill_you got this_wmI used a Fuse Green card base and stamped the new Wonky Chevron background on the inside. Adds a little fun for the recipient πŸ™‚ “You Got This” = Awesomesauce.

hawkins_jill_you got this_00_wmI really enjoyed this week’s sketch, so I made another card. Then I had ideas for at least three more, but, it was almost midnight. πŸ˜‰ Some other day…

hawkins_jill_congrats_wmThose little flags use the new August released Fringe die! Oh goodness, that’s a fun one too! πŸ™‚ The Primitive White base gives a nice warmth to the card.

hawkins_jill_congrats_00_wmThis one is being mailed to a friend…and it is WAY overdue. 😦
