A Ear-y Twist & Dinos! :)

I thought I would use the new Paper Smooches Dog die in a different way too: Ears or mountains?! Haaaa!
jill_cat-and-dog-die_huge-hugs
I had this one in my head and had to get it out! I also used the Huge Hugs! Seriously, this Dino: ❀ ❀ ! I colored the Dino with Copic markers and gave him and his balancing hearts some dimension with foam tape. I used my white pen to snow cap the mountains.jill_cat-and-dog-die_huge-hugs_00
For this card, I also used bits from the following: Heart Frame Die, Feathered Friends Icon dies, and Snowdrifts dies.
Here are a few more Dino-mite cards to enjoy using the new Dinosaur Die! Once I started, I couldn’t stop using him/her! πŸ™‚
This one also uses the Tag Stitched die. This little guy is Wild! He is riding the Bicycle die πŸ™‚Also, the sentiment is from the new Huge Hugs 2 set. ❀ Paper Smooches sentiments! Of course, I had to make this little cutie a girl too! πŸ™‚ This is made with the Love Word 2 die, Heart Frame die, and the Dainty Flowers 2 die.
She is too cute!! Eeeep! I love the navy and pink together.

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a Dino-mite weekend!! πŸ™‚

I kept this one pretty simple because the dies do all the work. Love that! I added some big googley eyes for added fun. πŸ™‚ This sentiment is from the forthcoming PS stamp set, Critter Card Puns.jill_cat-dog-card-die_inside

This die set is chock full of fun pieces that you can add or mix up and use in different ways! Eeeep! Wait until you check out all the other fun shaped dies coming from PS this month too! They are fun to use and surely fun to receive! 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!
