Freaking Amazing. MFT Sketch 284

Here’s my take on MFT Sketch Challenge #284. This challenge come from the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration Blog!photoI love to mix up colors, so I used Spearmint, Persimmon, Nightshift and Cement Gray. ahhhh πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_amazing_00_wmI die cut the chevron stripes and used the one in between as another strip. If you don’t snip them apart, you actually get three different chevron strips vs. two. Hopefully I can keep them together! I laid those up, then die cut them into the peek-a-boo circle. Inlaid that, die cut some lines, embossed on vellum, and stitched on the sentiment. LOVE the “You are Freaking Amazing” stamp. I always reach for it. πŸ™‚

I took this photo both early this morning, and just this evening. Neither time grabbed the colors fantastically, but so it goes. A never-ending issue. πŸ™‚hawkins_jill_amazing_wmMy card is made with supplies at My Favorite Things. Die-namics: Blueprints 13, Chevron Stripes, LJD Peek-a-boo Circle Windows, Basic Stitched Lines. Stamps: Amazing. Card stock: Spearmint, Persimmon, Cement Gray, Smooth White and Nightshift.

MFT Sketch #243

photoBuckle up, MFT Sketch Challenge #243 is on My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration posts up today!!

This week’s sketch:MFT_WSC_243My card for the week:

hawkins_jill_make happy_00_wmThis one is a doozy to write instructions for, that don’t sound wack…die cut the die cut and then die cut that die cut…etc. Several die cutting and inlay steps…but such cool results! That checkerboard! Weeeeee!

hawkins_jill_make happy_wmI made another card previously (for MFT Summer School) using this same method. You can see it HERE. I still want to do a myriad of colors with this checkerboard. That’s on my list for September/October πŸ˜‰

I squeaked in a second card last night for this awesomely versatile sketch:

hawkins_jill_bear hug_wmI could use several of this card to send out. ❀

hawkins_jill_bear hug_00_wmI used foam tape to pop the frame up. Adds a little something πŸ˜‰

MFT Sketch #239

photoMFT Sketch Challenge #239 on My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration is starting TODAY!

Here is this week’s sketch:MFT_WSC_239This is my card for the week:

hawkins_jill_hope your day_00_wmI so enjoy this little sunny dude! πŸ™‚ The Abstract stencil and background…well, I’ve mentioned my adoration of these many-a-times too! I stamped and embossed the Build-able Blooms for the sun. It ended up a little more subtle than intended, but, alas πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_hope your day_wmI squeaked in a second card. This one was made in probably five different sit-downs, so it feels a bit disjointed. But, meh, I think it’s kinda fun still πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_don't know_wm…and I think my stitching went a bit awry πŸ™‚

Here is my card for the week:

hawkins_jill_ForYoutoo_wmI blended on some Grout Gray ink at the last-minute on the floral layer. I just thought it was too stark ;). I used the sketch upside down and then *tucked in* most of the banner. πŸ™‚
