Some NEW Ellen Hutson FUN!

I am way excited to share a couple of cards I made for the new Essentials by Ellen Release! It’s always so fun to see their new releases! Eeeeeeep! #mayormaynotalwayswantitALL πŸ™‚

This first card I made with the new: Leading Ladies – Photo Lady by Brandi Kincaid

This sentiment is from: Totally Random Sayings Vol. 1 by Julie Ebersole. (awesome set!)

(This name includes “Volume 1″….this may be insinuating there is going to be another volume? Oh goodness. Note to self: Start saving! πŸ™‚ )

How much do I love this lady’s shoes?! A LOT! Such fun!! I colored all these ladies shoes with Copics. I added some black and white striped washi to the card base and some stitching to the panel to complete the card. This is a fave!! πŸ™‚

For my next card, I used: Abstract Paint Strokes by Julie Ebersole.Β 

This set is CRAZY versatile!! I love these kind of sets because the possibilities are endless!

This sentiment is also from: Totally Random Sayings Vol. 1 by Julie Ebersole.

I thought this was a fun take on a holiday card of trees! Paint Strokes to trees! Fun fun!

I stamped these with various Lawn Fawn and Hero Arts inks, heat embossed the sentiment and added a couple more gray cardstock strips. I finished it all off with some stitching and white gel pen details. πŸ™‚

Here’s a better look at the whole set: Abstract Paint Strokes by Julie Ebersole

Here’s this sentiment set:Β  Totally Random Sayings Vol. 1 by Julie Ebersole.And lastly, the Leading Lady Photo Lady by Brandi Kincaid:

Hello Again! :)

Happy Friday! I’m popping in with a card using Paper Smooches NEW November goodies! πŸ™‚

For this card I used: New Deco Edge Dies, New Layered Hello Dies, and the previously released Postage Stamp Dies.

I just love how this card turned out! Definitely one of my favorite kind of cards that includes a lot of white and some simple clean, designs that POP! These cards always take a little longer than you’d think to make, but in the end, ❀ them and really enjoy making them!

I added a few layers of the hello to give it some girth. πŸ™‚ I think I even doubled up on the Postage Stamp dies. ❀ These new Deco Edge dies are crazy versatile for edges, or underneath or just here as a background. They are well-loved already! πŸ™‚

All the November release from Paper Smooches can be found HERE! Such sweetness!

Have a GREAT weekend!

Thanks for stopping by!

New from Technique Tuesday!

Happy November! I am not recovered from Halloween yet, but Happy November! πŸ™‚

Hooray for lots of new stamps and dies from Technique Tuesday today! They can be found HERE!

Today, I’m sharing a card using the new Sassy Fashion Stamp set! Isn’t this fantastic!? I just cracked up when I saw this sentiment. Yes! πŸ™‚ ❀

I stamped and colored the dresses with Copic markers. For the card base, I used some silver washi tape and patterned paper. I added some stitching on,Β  and called it a day. I couldn’t decide if I should add a few sequins, but I thought the silver sparkle was enough. πŸ™‚

 

Be sure to hop over and check out the new stuff from Technique Tuesday HERE! Lots of fun!Β  πŸ™‚

Hope you don’t suffer from a Halloween candy tummy ache today! πŸ˜‰ Haaaaa!

Take care- Jill πŸ™‚

Hello!

Hooray! The November release from Paper Smooches can be found HERE! Oh goodness, super fun!

I thought I’d share this shaker card I made with two new goodies! The new Layered Hello Dies and Sympathy Sampler. The Sympathy Sampler works well for other things too. πŸ˜‰

Eeeeep!I love that HELLO! Kim has the best writing! I haven’t made a shaker card in sooo long! So this was cool to do. πŸ˜‰

Hope you enjoy your week! And Happy Halloween to those little trick or treaters! πŸ™‚

Good Tidings

Good Tidings to you! Following up on yesterday’s post, I thought I’d share a card I made with the new Paper Smooches Decorate a Tree die. This is a little more conventional use of this die, unless of course, you consider the colors! πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_good-tidings_wmThe little squiggle of garland that floats down the tree & the star can be used in many more fun ways. Love that.

hawkins_jill_good-tidings_00_wmIf you missed my post yesterday, check it out HERE. I used this die in a much different way! πŸ™‚ My other November release Paper Smooches posts can be found HERE, HERE, and HERE.

This great sentiment is from Paper Smooches new Be Merry stamp set.

See you back here tomorrow! πŸ™‚

More Paper Smooches fun!

Surprise, I’m back today with one more card using the fun November Paper Smooches release! The DT Blog Hop is bumped up to tomorrow, Wednesday, so I wanted to squeeze this one more in today!

Apparently, this month, I was all about mixing up the Christmas colors. Be sure to check out my previous posts, which I will link to at the bottom.

This card uses the new Triangle Tree Die from Paper Smooches. This die has some mega possibilities too! I have a bunch of cards unfinished on my desk with this one! Some can be finished, some were just experiments gone awry. πŸ˜‰

hawkins_jill_we-wish_wmThis card is a bit different, and is really non-holiday. I thought the geometric fun of this die was great to mix it up a bit! I also used the new Christmas Tree Die words on this. And a heart from another Paper Smooches die. ❀

You can find some of my previous November Paper Smooches posts HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE. Phew. πŸ™‚

Be sure to head back here tomorrow for the Paper Smooches DT Hop! I am excited to be filling in again for December, and cannot WAIT to share some of the new release. ❀ !! Such a pleasure to take part in the Paper Smooches fun! πŸ™‚

Thanks again for stopping by! πŸ™‚

hawkins_santa-tag_wmOf course, I added some googley eyes and a puffy beard. πŸ™‚ Cute cute! Also, I used the new Be Merry stamp set. I’m telling you, if you need one good holiday sentiment set, this is the one.
