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 🙂

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. 🙂

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. 🙂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.

Sweet Sweet Sunday #280

Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!! #280! 🙂

Here’s this week’s sketch:

This is my take on the Sketch for the week: Those Abstract pieces were itching to be used!hawkins_jill_happy_wm I ended up rotating the sketch to be a horizontal card, which is highly abnormal for me…the horizontal part, that is. I prefer a vertical card for whatever reason. I love these Sketches Karen whips up! 🙂

Sweet Sunday Sketch: #277

Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!! #277 fires up today! 🙂

Here’s this week’s sketch:

Here is my card for the week:

hawkins_jill_happy birthday_+wmI used MFT’s new Party Patterns stamp set for this square panel. I think those random shapes and squiggles are the best! So versatile! 🙂 I like that a lot. AND I also quite enjoy the other stamp set and background I used. The Birthday Wishes & Balloons (font! LOVE!) and the Balloon Strings background. When I saw that background, I knew it had to come live with me 😉

hawkins_jill_happy birthday_00_wmP.S. I’m a MISTI supporter. That tool really is incredible and lets me use stamps in ways I would not normally be able to… like this card. Stamping on an inlaid panel could yield even wackier results if I couldn’t double stamp them. It. Is. Awesome.

MFT Sketch #224 AND Shaker!

photoSketch Challenge #224 TODAY on My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog!! Sure to be rockin’ cards by my teammates! 🙂

Here’s a peek at my card this week: Die-namics Stitched Jumbo Fishtail Banner STAX. Oh yea! 🙂hawkins_jill_sketch224_00_wmI used the Die-namics Stitched Jumbo Fishtail Banner STAX repeatedly to get that one banner. It came together so well. LOVE that! Go check it and all the other fabulousness from the DT on the MFT Card Challenges blog today!

Here’s the sketch 🙂

MFT_WSC_224Also this week, the MFT Stamps Blog is all about Shakers!!PrintHere’s one for today!hawkins_jill_sending happy_wmI recommend static treating all parts of your shaker card before you put the goodies inside. I did that here, but as you can see, some still sticks wacky. But hey, that’s the nature of the card. They are meant to shake, so a still shot is never quite as enjoyable as a good SHAKE!! Ha!! 😉 The MFT Blueprints #24 has sequin die cuts, so that is what I used here. The possibilities are endless to make shaker cards. 🙂
