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.

You will find all the new Paper Smooches productsΒ HERE. Β 

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

Family Laughs

Happy (Technique) Tuesday! The new Technique Tuesday release can be found HERE!

I soooooo enjoy THIS new set from Technique Tuesday called Sassy Family. I think sometimes a sentiment is all you need for a card. With two of these cards below, I did just that:

I would never ignore a call. πŸ™‚

For this card, I stamped in orange and heat embossed it clear. Then I added some patterned papers and some stitching to keep it simple.

This sentiment, I find particularly hilarious and OH SO TRUE! πŸ™‚Β  I scored the paper on this card before adding watercolor with Distress Inks. I was hoping the ink would pool up in the creases, but no such luck. It’s always an experiment with watercolor!

And of course, this sentiment above about the bathroom and silence, is my FAVORITE of this set. I just think is so funny and SO TRUE!! πŸ™‚ I think I might have one last sentiment to ink from this set? Otherwise, I’ve used them all. Such fun!

Don’t forget to check out the new stuff from Technique Tuesday HERE! Happy March!

Thanks for stopping by!

Somebunny Loves You…

Happy Wednesday! I thought I’d give a shout that the new Technique Tuesday goodies are released online! Oh happy day!

I’ll be back to share some cards with Sassy Family soon, but in the meantime, you can find the whole new March release HERE! Whooooooot!! πŸ™‚

I thought I’d share this card using the new Bailey the Bunny stamp set. I cannot resist a good bunny tail, and these bunnies are so cute together! πŸ™‚

Bailey also has a die set, and that can be found HERE. I used just that die to create this delightful little number. πŸ™‚ Teehee. Chocolate bunnies!

Awesome

Big fan of the Awesome. πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_awesome_wmKept this pretty simple by just blocking some card stock and die cutting it. You could also probably use a marker to color different shades. I like the crispness of this style though. πŸ™‚ hawkins_jill_awesome_00_wmPaper Smooches supplies: Awesome die

I’m playing along with the April Paper Smooches Challenge! Black and White with a POP of color! πŸ™‚ Dig this challenge!Β  I had a couple more ideas, so let’s hope I find time before month’s end. It’s already Mid-April?!
