Seasons Givings Blog Hop: 2019!

Hello! I’m here today to share with lots of creative people and share the goodness for the Seasons Givings Blog Hop!! Big Thanks to my friend Latisha for putting it all together and coordinating again this year! ❤

I truly appreciate all the support, reading, kind comments and sharing on my blog throughout the year, and this is my (and everyone today!) way of saying THANK YOU!! Everyone along the hop today will have some sort of giveaway to share!

I thought I would share a couple favorite cards I have from the year. Of course, I am horrible at picking faves, because I often have dozens (and I do mean dozens), but for the sake of time, here’s a few! 🙂 Other favorites can be found in Scrapbook & Cards Today 2019 issues! ❤

This one above is Taylored Expressions and you can find it on my blog HERE.

This one above is Honey Bee Stamps and you can find it on my blog HERE.

This one above is made with Ellen Hutson and can be found on my blog HERE.

This card above is made with Concord & 9th and can be found on my blog HERE.

This card above is made with Paper Smooches and can be found on my blog HERE.

Here is the WHOLE Blog list to hop around to! Be sure to check out all the fun:

I have many things to send and share with others, so I have packaged them up into these MYSTERY boxes below. *Disclaimer: I have found more goodies after I took this photo, so I am now thinking I will get one BIGGER box and pick one winner for a full bounty! I’ll be heading to the Post Office next week to get a new box! 🙂 (Please note that the winner must have a US mailing address.) 

If you are a new stamper or a seasoned stamper, I’m sure you will find a few things you like in the box for sure. There is a variety of styles and manufacturers that I have collected over the course of the last year (or two). It’s mostly stamps and dies, maybe a few this and thats too. Honestly, I’m thinking the box will be pretty packed. And anything you don’t like, I just ask you share it forward with someone that does. ❤

**All you need to do is add a comment below telling me:

What your favorite kind of card to make is? Birthday? Holiday? Get Well? Just because? etc.

And/OR

What is your favorite style of card? CAS? Floral? Layers? Graphic? etc.

My favorite cards to make are funny and graphic *Just Because* cards. But I love to see others styles, especially if it’s not something I could ever pull off making myself! 🙂

You have until January 10th to comment and I will post a random winner next weekend, January 11/12! And I will mail it out the following week! Hooray!

If you’re interested in following me along on Instagram I’m here @jilldhawkins and of course, on my blog here at FastestTurtle.wordpress.com! You an subscribe in the sidebar over there >> . (I do post often throughout the month.)

Spellbinders Dies of the Month: November!

Happy Friday! I’m here today to share a few cards I made with Spellbinders Large and Small Dies of the Month Clubs!

You can hop over to the Spellbinders website to check out all the information on Small Dies of the Month HERE and you can check out the Large Dies of the Month HERE. There are also a Value Clubs HERE if you’re interested in joining multiple clubs at once.

This Spellbinders Small Die of the Month is  Kaleidoscope Snowflake and you can find it HERE. There is a new Small Die of the Month EVERY month!

I thought this turned out so delicate, which I don’t think is my usual gig?  😉
I just used  silver thread to thread thru the snowflakes and added two layers of foam tape to give the frame I cut out with my craft knife a little lift.

The sentiments are from Lawn Fawn’s sentiment set: Offset Says Christmas HERE.


Next up, I have the Spellbinders Large Die of the Month! This one is my FAVORITE!! I mean, HOW CUTE is this Santa?! Gah! Adorable.  And I thought he wanted to be on trend in Buffalo Plaid 😉 . This one is called Santa’s Helpers  and you can find it HERE.

I just think he is cutie patootie!! And I thought this sweet sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Greetings Mix 1, Believe in You (HERE) was perfect to stamp and give this card to our son at Christmas. ❤

The stencil is called Hot Dot from Paper Smooches! ❤

Such a sweet little guy! The Large Die of the Month is available HERE!  🙂

________________________________________________________________________

There is one little bonus card from me this month featuring the add on and it is called SANTA’S REINDEER ETCHED DIES – SANTA’S HELPERS ADD-ON SET and you can find that one HERE!

You can add this little cutie to the same body that Santa has on the above card, just tweeking it slightly.

This sweet sentiment is from Ellen Hutson’s Oh Deer set. (I think this set is retired?)


Well, I think that is all from me today! Thanks for stopping by to check out my cards using Spellbinders Small Die of the Month Club HERE , Large Die of the Month Club HERE, and the add on Reindeer HERE. Check it out and join in the fun!
