Happy Happy Happy!

Well, here we are. Sunday. I have a love/hate with Sunday. πŸ™‚

I’m popping in with another card I made for Technique Tuesday this past month. I love me some Happy! This set is the Happy Happy Happy set! What a great name huh? And there is a coordinating die HERE. I used the little banner from it. πŸ™‚

I love the font of this happy, so I just used it over and over! Nothing says happy like a rainbow!

If you missed the announcement last week, there is a new Technique Tuesday team in the house! Hooray! Quite excited and feeling fortunate to be working with these creative people!!

Be sure to check out the rest of the Technique Tuesday release HERE! Lots of exciting posts coming from me this week too! See you back here Tuesday! So fitting. πŸ˜‰

Have a great week!

Take care- Jill πŸ™‚

Clucking!

I’m interrupting your Super Bowl experience this evening to bring some crafty fun πŸ™‚ !

It’s February! And that means there are new stamps aboard from Technique Tuesday! I love a good play on words, and naturally, this month does NOT disappoint! πŸ™‚

For these cards, I used Technique Tuesday’s newly released, Chicken Family Stamp set (and Chicken Family dies)Β  the previously released, Funny Farm stamp set and coordinating dies.

Oh my word! This is the perfect card to send from our house! LOL! πŸ™‚

I colored this scene with Copic Markers. I mean, chickens are blue, right? πŸ˜‰


This next card uses the SUPER FUN new set, Cheeky Chicken. These sentiments are so stinkin’ funny to me! πŸ™‚ They also have coordinating dies HERE. Just crack me UP!

I actually gave this to my hubby for his birthday. Because he really wants chickens. Bwaahahha!

For this card above, I used my Zig Clean Color Markers for a little loosey “goosey” watercolor action.

Be sure to check out the rest of the Technique Tuesday release HERE!

Hope your week starts out with a win!! πŸ™‚

Take care- Jill πŸ™‚

To be brief…

This new AWESOME set from Technique Tuesday CRACKS me up!! It is called Sassy Birthday, and it is gooooood stuff! πŸ™‚

I quite enjoy how this card turned out! πŸ™‚

I also used the new stamp set Let’s Party! πŸ™‚ I white heat embossed those stamps on the panel, and then blended on some Distress Inks. The word Celebrate is from the new Celebrate die set! I used my always-go-to paper strips and then die cut the word out. I think this card screams PARTY! πŸ™‚

You can check out all the fun new stuff from Technique Tuesday HERE!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great Sunday!

These cards are made with the new Kyle the Cool Cat stamps. He’s pretty suave, it seems. I also like his little mouse buddy. πŸ™‚ You can find Kyle’s bio HERE. teehee.

I used my Zig pens to add some color to these cuties. πŸ™‚ I also used my go-to TT die, Memo Pad Card die.

Here’s another fun card with Kyle, and his coolness.

jill_celebrate-word-die

I kept this card pretty simple and let the new word die Celebrate do the work!jill_celebrate-word-die_00

I also used the Star die frame from the Super Star dies and I embossed with the Celebrate Balloon dies. OH, and I also used the Celebrate mat from Let’s Celebrate Icons dies. Such a sparkly little number, this one! I like having this card on hand to send for any celebratory occasion! πŸ™‚

Thank you again for stopping by–enjoy your weekend!

It’s all about Birthdays!

Hey Hey!! Technique Tuesday has another fun release! Party!! Check it all out HERE! I don’t know about you, but I can NEVER have too many birthday cards ready to rock. NEVER! πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_birthday_00_wm

This sentiment from the new Many Candles Stamp Set, is too funny! πŸ™‚ I stamped the candles from the set repeatedly and use some Stickles to add a little glitter sparkle!hawkins_jill_birthday_wm

I thought it would be fun to stamp some white on kraft. I think this card rocks for giving a guy on his birthday. πŸ™‚ I double stamped and off stamped for a fun effect. πŸ™‚hawkins_jill_candles_00_wm

I also enjoy that this sentiment offsets the snarky one, right? Ha! πŸ™‚hawkins_jill_candles_wm

For this last Birthday card, I used the new TT set, Let’s Party! πŸ™‚ I think this stamp set screams festive, so I went with a very loose watercolor. It’s a party! πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_wish_wm

I’m used Distress Inks to color this fiesta!

Technique Tuesday time! :)

Yay! Thank you for joining me on another Technique Tuesday Thursday! You can hop over to the TT blog for this week’s scoop!

First up, The Struggle is (very) Real! I Can’t Even! πŸ™‚ The minute I saw this Say What?! stamp set month’s back, I wanted it crazy bad. The sentiments are so stinkin’ fun!!

hawkins_jill_the struggle_wm…and the Clipboard die!! I stamped the red back card with the Measure Up set, that I have had for years! It still sees a lot of ink here. πŸ™‚
hawkins_jill_the struggle_00_wmI’ve always had a thing for office supplies, so this combo of dies, stamps, and papers makes my organizational heart sing! πŸ™‚

I then busted out the Heart Strings die again. This die is sweet and versatile!

hawkins_jill_with love_wmI used the Memo Pad die too. I sorta kinda want to use this die on EVERY card! Is that wrong? πŸ˜‰ I inlaid and layer inlaid these die cuts in…Delightful!

hawkins_jill_with love_00_wmThis sentiment is from the Sending Smiles stamp set. You know I gush over Teri’s handwriting, mixed with this typeface, so naturally, I totally dig this set too! πŸ™‚

Well, that wraps another Technique Tuesday Thursday for me. Such fun products with endless possibilities!! Be sure to head over to the Technique Tuesday blog today. I’ll be back here next Thursday with more fun! πŸ™‚

In case you missed it, you can find my previous TT posts: HERE, HERE, and HERE. πŸ™‚
