Right at Home’s Anemone set

I’m over on the Right at Home blog today, sharing a few more cards I created with the latest Right at Home release! You can also check out the whole release HERE!
All of these cards are made with the super easy to use Anemone set! It’s a lovely set that can be used in quite a variety of ways. I’ll share the cards here, but please head over to the RAH Blog to read more! 🙂
This first card, is one of my favorites!
I used a scalloped circle to mask off the stamping area. Which is why the edge is “blurred”. You can easily make it a crisper edge with a solid circle. 🙂
 And here is a PURPLE card! 😉 Rare!
So easy to layer exactly OR slightly offset! 🙂
And here is a whole set, one of which I shared a couple weeks back!
You can make this simpler and crank them out much faster in a pinch.
I’m digging the blue one! I didn’t think I’d like it, but it looks good!
I used a white Prismacolor pencil to color in the sentiments. I go back and forth on if I like it or not? I wish I had thought ahead and left the sentiment stamp to be stamped precisely on top again. But, I make decisions as I go vs. planning ahead on cards. Ha! 🙂

Also, I used sentiments from RAH’s previously released set, Make Something Beautiful for a few of these cards! ❤ that set!

I hope you have a chance to check out all of the new Right at Home release! Thank you again to Nicole! I’ve loved inking up all these Right at Home stamps and I’m looking forward to more! 🙂

Wishing you all a wonderful week!

MFT Sketch #277

Here’s my take on MFT Sketch Challenge #277! This comes from the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration Blog!photoI thought I’d get ahead for either Teacher Appreciation or more likely, the end of the school year! 🙂 My son’s teacher is beyond AMAZING! And I like to tell her that. ❤ hawkins_jill_teacher_wmI thought this was a little different take on the sketch this week. I clear embossed the Roses All Over BG and then rubbed in distress inks. Pretty quick and easy, which is what I like these days! 🙂


My card is made with supplies at My Favorite Things. Die-namics: Wonky Stitched Rectangle STAX, Candy Jars, Stitched Fishtail Flag STAX. Stamps: Roses All Over BG, LLD Soda Pop, and Rainbow of Happiness. Card stock: Ripe Raspberry and Smooth White.

Out of the Zone

I received THIS Fuchsia stamp set from Technique Tuesday, and was wondering if I could do it justice. I cannot lie: Flowers, especially lovely, realistic ones, are not my forte. But, always up for a challenge, I tried! 🙂

hawkins_jill_you make my_wmDefinitely something different for me overall. I also tried using watercolor over watercolor. Does that makes sense? Haaa! Something to build on going forward. 🙂

hawkins_jill_you make my_00_wmFor these cards, I used Technique Tuesdays’ set Fuchsia – Greenhouse Society Stamps – April 2016. I know many people who would rock these stamps, and they are issued monthly. Very cool. If you want to see some pretty examples with this set, check these out HERE.

I also used the Be Happy set. ❤

Thanks for stopping by to see something out of my comfort zone. 🙂 I figure, if nothing else, it is good for my brain. 🙂
