*Technique Tuesday and MISTI!* (pssst….Giveaway!)

Good Morning and Happy Weekend!! Today, we are having a fun blog hop between the My Sweet Petunia and Technique Tuesday! Whooohoooo! A perfect pairing of two of my most used companies. 🙂 Buckle up, there are prizes!!

On with my card, yes?

For this card, I used Technique Tuesday’s Happy Happy Happy Stamp set and Man Day stamps for the Birthday sentiment stamp. I stamped and heat embossed them in white, easily spacing them straight with MISTI. After that, I used my Kuretake pearl palette of sparkly watercolors from Kuretake. (This set HERE is a larger solid color set.)

Anywho, I polished off this card with a few Pretty Pink Posh confetti sequins and and some stitching.

Now, let’s chat about the Most Incredible Stamping Tool Invented from My Sweet Petunia! I gave my standard MISTI a little tune up and I am really loving it! First, you should know that I use my MISTIs  “backwards”. So, when I saw that you can replace your ruler strips with not only other colors, but that I could also have my numbers in the correct direction, I was all over it. You can check those options out HERE. (There are also turquoise replacement rulers.) Now I just need to retrofit my Mini MISTI!

Then I decided to add the Mouse Pad to my MISTI. I recommend this for quick clean up and ease. I’ll still use my grid papers (those are HERE), but this has made everything look cleaner overall. Highly enjoyable! 🙂

Ok, I mentioned prizes! Here’s the details: Two lucky commenters will be chosen from the hop to win one of two prizes: a $50 shopping spree at www.mysweetpetunia.com and a $50 shopping spree at www.techniquetuesday.com – You must leave your comments no later than Monday, May 28th, at 11:59 PM Central time and winners will be announced on Tuesday May 29th, on the Technique Tuesday and My Sweet Petunia blogs
Next on the hop, you’re going to head over to Susan Wymer‘s blog and see what she has in store! It is surely worth the hop over! 🙂
Here’s the list of all the fun stops today! Be sure to hop along and leave comments for your chances at the prizes above! 🙂
Good luck and have a wonderful weekend! Hope it includes some stamping! 🙂

Happy Dad’s Day!

I had some fun mixing up some Technique Tuesday supplies, to make a cute Dad’s Day card!

hawkins_jill_fave dad_wmMy Dad doesn’t wear a bow tie, but I thought this made the little big bird that much more fun! 🙂

hawkins_jill_fave dad_00_wmI stamped, die cut, and colored with Copic markers. Love these little birds!

I used the following Technique Tuesday supplies: Postage Card die, Chicks Rule, Summer (glasses die), and Man Day.

Here’s to all the great Dad’s out there! 🙂

Grandmother Love

Preparing for Mother’s Day and Teacher Appreciation all this week! Let’s see how many posts I can squeeze in too! 🙂 Here is one of my fun Technique Tuesday cards for my lovely Grannie. She is not online, so I’m in the clear to share! 🙂

hawkins_jill_grandmother_wmThe ‘crazy good looking’ part is so spot on. If only I inherit her genes, in that respect! 🙂

hawkins_jill_grandmother_00_wmI’m mailing this today, so I know it’ll be there in plenty of time! 😉 I only wish I could hug her in person too. ❤

I watercolored with Distress Inks, and used the following stamp sets from Technique Tuesday: Mom’s Day, Man Day, and Beary Sweet. It’s fun to mix the Mom set with the Man set! 🙂

Thanks for stopping by! See you again soon!
