I Miss Your Face

Hello and Happy Friday–hope your Halloween was a good one! We have too much candy here now, but it will be dispersed down different avenues and be long gone soon. πŸ™‚

Today, I’m sharing this sweet Paper Smooches card. I LOVE this sentiment and wanted to keep it simple. πŸ™‚

I die cut the hearts from felt and added them on with some stitching. Then I stamped the sentiment simply and added some scoring lines to finish off the panel.

I just love the sweet simplicity of it. πŸ™‚ But I do laugh at how long it takes to come to this simplicity sometimes? Haaaaa! πŸ™‚

Thank You, Favorite Human

We meet again! Yay! Thanks for stopping by πŸ™‚

This Friday’s Paper Smooches card is brought to you by these sweet little birds! Thank you Thank you Thank you! I stamped this background awhile back and it has been sitting on my desk to use for months. It finally got its day in the sun.

I colored these fun little birds with Copic Markers. Next, I die cut the notepad window for them and added some scoring lines. I then white heat embossed the sentiment strip and adhered everything down with foam tape. To polish it off, I added some stitching, of course. πŸ˜‰

Such a sweet card to say Thank You to our favorite human! πŸ™‚

Love Birds

Sharing another card the September Paper Smooches Anything Goes Challenge! I’m hoping this one arrived at its destination by now. πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_lovebirds_wmI had previously stamped and watercolored a bunch of little birdies from Paper Smooches Feathered Friends, which made it quick and fun to make a few cards!hawkins_jill_lovebirds_00_wmI hand drew in the line on the bottom and then added some ink blending. Fortunately, it looks a lot smoother in person! πŸ™‚ The little heart is from the Heart Die Frame. I just added some sparkle! Oh, and I colored the edge of a white card base to perfectly match the card details. Whoot! πŸ™‚

The Feathered Friends have coordinating dies, which I also used.

You Are My Sunshine

Love these little cuties from Paper Smooches Feathered Friends!

I had to get busy with a couple more cards for the September Paper Smooches Anything Goes Challenge! (I’ll post the other one soon!)

hawkins_jill_sunshine_wmI also used PS’s new Heart Frame Die. Gah! Perfecto for this happy little couple.hawkins_jill_sunshine_00_wmSuch fun! I also used the Feathered Friends coordinating dies. Paper Smooches sentiment is from the Fun and Flirty set. The tiny heart was laying on my desk, so I’m not sure where this is from? Haaa!

More PS September! :)

I thought I’d share a couple more Star Cards I made with Paper Smooches September release! I feel like I have barely cracked the surface of possibilities yet! You can find my previous celebratory Paper Smooches post HERE. I also used the cute new Feathered Friends set HERE.

These cards are made with the new die set, Super Star dies! ❀

hawkins_jill_miss your face_00_WmEeeeep I love the stars with the City Super 2 dies! I watercolored the background with distress inks for this one.

hawkins_jill_miss your face_WmAnd the sentiment is from Fun & Flirty! πŸ™‚

The next one is made with the same Super Star dies and sentiment set, Fun & Flirty! I’m telling you, that is a fantastic sentiment set! πŸ™‚

hawkins_heybeautiful_wmJust a touch of watercolor for an easy background. The hard part is letting it dry! πŸ˜‰

hawkins_heybeautiful_00_wmI thought it was fun to trim up with Star frame into strips and create this card.

Be sure to check out all the awesome new Paper Smooches goodies HERE! Such FUN!! πŸ™‚

Hey Beautiful

Happy Long Weekend, USA! I had some fun coloring and arranging the new Feathered Friends from Paper Smooches! You can check out another release post I did HERE. (I’ll have another coming soon!) πŸ™‚

Fantastically coincidentally, the September Paper Smooches Challenge is Anything Goes! Whoooot! Lots of time, and the sky is the limit on this one, crafty friends! πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_hey B_00_wmAren’t these cute little birds so tweet?! What fun to color them! I love having the coordinating dies too. I often don’t, so it was fun to use them here, especially with those little birdie legs! πŸ™‚hawkins_jill_hey B_wmFor coloring these cuties, I used my Zig watercolor pens. For the background, I blended on some Distress Inks in Twisted Citron and an Orange (I can’t recall which, LOL.). I purposely made them a bit splotchy to get a wee bit of texture. πŸ˜‰

Paper Smooches sentiment I used is from the Fun and Flirty set. ❀

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 fun!

Fortunately, I have not been voted off the island as February Guest Designer at Paper Smooches!! πŸ˜‰ Such fun to use some of my favorites!! Hop over to the PS Blog today!

I will not mention how long this first card took to land on. I tinkered and tinkered and tinkered, and then #boom. Funny how the simplest things take me quite a long time! πŸ˜‰

The sentiments and fonts in the new Fun & Flirty stamp set can truly hold a card, as you can see here:   hawkins_jill_wonderful_wmI mean, really. That’s fun. πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_wonderful_00_wmFor my second card this week, I used the fun new Wine Glass die! Got things shakin’! πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_amazing_wmYou are Ridiculously Amazing. My sentiments exactly. Go figure! πŸ™‚ hawkins_jill_amazing_00_wmI’m clearly in a Distress Ink watercolor mode, and the results are fun. I decided I don’t enjoy  when I make cards too “neat”, so this technique is fitting for me to use! If that makes any sense, at all. LOL πŸ™‚

Love Love Love this Fun & Flirty sentiment set! So fortunate to have it on my desk! πŸ™‚

Paper Smooches! :)

Have I mentioned how excited I am to be the February Guest Designer at Paper Smooches!! It’s like going over to hang out at one of your favorite places. πŸ™‚ Be sure to hop over to the PS Blog today!

I simply love the sentiments and fonts in the new Fun & Flirty stamp set. I think I’ve stamped almost every sentiment already! πŸ™‚

Here is my first card this week: I masked and inked a hexagon for the background. 

hawkins_jill_hey beautiful_00_wmThis card also uses the new Rain Boot die! Just so fun and fitting for Spring!! πŸ™‚ hawkins_jill_hey beautiful_wmWhen I saw this next sentiment, I couldn’t wait to stamp it! πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_favorite human_wm I initially did the panel, with the peeks of color. Couldn’t decide if I should just leave it alone or what? So naturally, I stamped the little guys from Space Cadet, creating a fun little backdrop! πŸ˜‰hawkins_jill_favorite human_00_wm_Love that simple font. ❀
