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!

I’m back with more new Technique Tuesday goodness!

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.

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!

Take care- Jill πŸ™‚

P.S. Next week, I’ll be here sharing something super fun! Hint: Cute. πŸ˜‰

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™‚

Thank you, Paper Smooches!

I have SO enjoyed having the privilege to be the February Guest Designer at Paper Smooches!! Happy 5th Anniversary to Kim and her Paper Smooches!! πŸ™‚ So many great designs in those 5 years! Be sure to follow the celebration on the PS Blog!

My first card uses the new Thank You die. This is such a great basic to have. I was eager and thankful to use this! πŸ˜‰ I also used the fun Bicycle die.

hawkins_jill_thank you_wmI cut the strips of dark gray and then started stacking the bright Thank You die cuts. In the end, it sort of reminded me of a school chalkboard and learning cursive writing! Ha! And: Rainbow. *sigh* πŸ˜‰

hawkins_jill_thank you_00_wmNext up: I was also really itching to use the Bird House dies again. I think there are so many more possibilities ahead with these little cuties!! πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_imissyourface_wmI mixed the dies with the the new Fun & Flirty stamp set and the Bitty Bungalows. Eeep! πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_imissyourface_00_wmI thought the birds wanted a few little add-ons. πŸ˜‰

Paper Smooches supplies: Fun & Flirty,Β Birdhouse Dies, Thank You die,Β Bicycle die and Bitty Bungalows.

My gratitude to Kim, for an AWESOME February of creating and (oh so much) happiness! πŸ™‚ You are truly a gem, Kim! Keep the awesome coming! πŸ™‚ #bigfan. I’m super grateful I’ve had this fun opportunity to create things and share!! πŸ™‚ ❀ ❀

Thanks for popping in! Be sure to check out the Paper Smooches blog! I’ll naturally be using many, many more PS goodies here in the future too! πŸ™‚

It’s a Great Thursday for Technique Tuesday!*

Welcome to my third week of Technique Tuesday Thursdays*! You can hop over to the TT blog for this week’s low down!

OK, prepare for some fun! Teri’s new little Robot set, Favorite Human, is so very fun! I’m not kidding when I say I had to hide it from myself for a while, so that I would diversify! πŸ˜‰

My first card is actually the first card I made with the new TT goodies! I still geek over it. πŸ™‚ hawkins_jill_my heart beeps_wmBeep! This set: <3!! I also used the Clipboard die, which is a staple die set to own, in my opinion. No pun intended, but close, with an office supply and all. πŸ˜‰ haaa!

hawkins_jill_my heart beeps_00_wmSo after I made the above card, with the fun robot background, I thought, hmmmm…and made another! πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_talk nerdy_wm“Talk Nerdy to Me”?!! I yelped! SO FUN! πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_talk nerdy_00_wmThe Favorite Human stamp set has lots of fun stamps all tucked into one smaller price-point. And, let’s face it, that is enjoyable in and of itself! Because: MORE STAMPS!! Be sure to head over to the Technique Tuesday blog today! I’ll see you back here next week for more! πŸ™‚

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