Fall Release from Taylored Expressions!

Taylored Expressions has a New Release today for FALL!! ๐Ÿ‚ This is not to be confused with the Halloween release because this one is all things Autumn! Well, besides Halloween! ๐Ÿ˜† too funny

Autumn is my favorite season so making these cards, I was getting all antsy for my sweatshirts and cozy blankets on the couch. And of course, I always love the warm colors of Fall too.

First up though, I decided to do a little fall and a little Guava. ๐Ÿ™‚ This is the new Signature Thanks die and backer die. The backer die is always the clincher isn’t it? Makes everything so easy to put together.

I also used the new Swirls Pierce Cutting Plate to create these backgrounds. Nothing is better than a simply made background to give everything so much detail and pop!

I feel like I should have made more of these at the time because I can use these for use for just about any occasion throughout the year.

I used Sweet Basil for the green on a continued journey of me branching out in my color ways. ๐Ÿ™‚

And then on the inside, (I actually remembered to stamp the inside!), I used the new Inside Scoop-Thanks. I’d definitely recommend using these sentiment stamps on the front of your cards too!

Next up, I have a fun one! This one uses the new What a Hoot Cling and Clear combo (and die!).

I REALLY branched out with all these colors I used and at first I wasn’t too sure about them, but now they are definitely growing on me. ๐Ÿ™‚ I

I also used the previously released Modern Tree Background and Stencil combo. That one is always a fun one to use in my book.

Naturally,ย  I had to add some googley eyes to the hooty owl. ๐Ÿ™‚ And of course, the fact I used purple anything still has me not knowing who actually made this card. Ha! We’ll see how much longer I continue on my branching on on color ways. ๐Ÿ™‚

This little What a Hoot set is too cute! ๐Ÿ™‚

Technique Tuesday! :)

Hello all! Phew! I’ve been MIA! ๐Ÿ™‚ It was weird to not create any cards for nearly a week?! We spent a lot of our Spring Break time visiting family. Loved it! Now, I’m getting back to it! Hooray!

Onward to the exciting news!! I have the super awesome pleasure of joining theย Technique Tuesday Creative Team!! What fun for me to work with products I โค ! Plus, Teri Anderson. Enough said. ๐Ÿ™‚ #terirocks

Annnnnd today is April release day for Technique Tuesday, so I thought I would share a project using one of the new little owl stamps: Proud Owl. There is a new owl each month! Love me some owls!! (The price point on these makes them irresistible! ๐Ÿ™‚ )

hawkins_jill_SO proud_wmI stamped the background with the Mom’s Day set. It says Favorite Son. Because I can say that. ๐Ÿ˜‰

hawkins_jill_SO proud_00_wmI loosely watercolored this guy with ink. I quite enjoy the way it turned out and I’m looking forward to trying this some more. I get all cookoo about trying to control watercolor, which if you ask me, is an oxymoron. I’m getting in the groove of just letting it rip! ๐Ÿ™‚ So much better!

Be sure to head over to the Technique Tuesday and check out ALL the new release there!! I’ll have more cards coming soon!

Thanks for stopping by & HUGE thanks to Teri and Technique Tuesday for having me along for the ride!!ย  ๐Ÿ™‚
