MFT Color Challenge #18!

MFT_ColorChallenge_PaintBook_18Today starts Color Challenge #18 on the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog… I can’t emphasize enough how fun these color combos are once you start working on them! πŸ˜‰

We continue our collaboration with SRM Stickers this month. I went with this little bag and masked it to stamp on. Turned out sooooooo fun! πŸ˜‰ SRM’s little treat bags and containers are oh so very cute. They make me want to just make treats to make cute receptacles for such! LOL πŸ™‚

Head over to cardchallenges.com today & find out all the details! Here’s a peek: hawkins_jill_CC18_00_wmI whipped up another card for this combo. This one is for my “nephew” as he turns FIVE! Where does time go!? This is now belated, but I actually had it made before his big day. Impressive for me! ha! Hope it’s still cool to have Peeps at FIVE! Happy Birthday D!

Sunday! Sunday! Sunday!

It’s another Sweet Sunday for the Sketch Challenge! I hope you have had a chance to play along! I loved the wonky panel last week….and this week, I went a lil’ rogue?! πŸ™‚

You can check out the full post and ALL the creative cards (and link up) on the Sweet Sunday Sketch Blog. Here’s my card for the week! πŸ™‚ hawkins_jill_fav peeps_wmhawkins_jill_fav peeps_01_wmI resisted every little bone in my body telling me to inlay this tag! I really wanted to “stencil” the stamping and then emboss it. and I DID! πŸ™‚ Yea! I did inlay the circle at the top of the tag though. *wink*

The Peep from MFT makes me cookoo happy!! πŸ™‚ I can’t believe I hadn’t stamped the little guy yet, only die cut him (a hundred times). So, what does one do then? Stamp him a couple dozen times to make up for it. Ha!! I started out making this and thinking, this would never float. I really don’t gravitate toward pastels (aka, the use of purple) ever. But hot dog: I like it, I really like it! It all comes back to the Peep. LOVE the PEEP!! πŸ™‚ I’m branchin’ out people! LOL.

This card was made with the following supplies by My Favorite Things: Die-namics In & Out Diagonal Stitched Rectangle STAX, Stitched Trad Tag STAX, Stitched Circle STAX (dies), Candy Jar Companion (stamps), Lemon Drop, Limelight, Wild Wisteria, Black Licorice (hybrid inks), Summer Splash, Ripe Raspberry (dye inks), Smooth White (card stock), embossing pad. I mixed ink types! Livin’ on the edge. πŸ˜‰

MFT Sketch #216…

photoSketch Challenge #216 starts today on My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog!

Here’s a peek at my card this week: (This is an odd color combo for me, but a challenge to try new things? Hooray!)

HAWKINS_JILL_SKETCH216_00_wmThe Ride the Wave dies are fabulous! I mean, I can’t stop using them…and the Donuts! I decided I need more wave dies, that would fit comfy cozy on the top and bottom of these waves… hmmmm?…*wink wink*… πŸ™‚ teehee πŸ˜‰

Here’s the sketch πŸ™‚ MFT_WSC_216Naturally, I had to make another card with a totally different take. Sure, the wave dies are a perfect fit for this sketch…but if you don’t have the waves, what do you do? Get creative!Β  I did that here:
HAWKINS_JILL_sketch216_1_WMI rotated the sketch, and then cut the card stock in three pieces to create that “dividing” element. I wanted to emphasize it, so I then scored the card stock. I used the Peep shaker element as the “circle”. In my mind, the circle just represents an element and it can be whatever! Be crazy! πŸ™‚ Go literal, go loose…but just GO make something & join in! πŸ™‚HAWKINS_JILL_sketch216_00_1_WMI have a major love of Peeps (the bunny versions seen here), so I had to purchase this die set for just the little bunny Peep. I may have a problem πŸ˜‰

This card is made with the following supplies by My Favorite Things: In & Out Diagonal Stitched Rectangle STAX,Β In & Out Diagonal Stitched Square STAX, Die-namics Candy Jar (dies), CS Candy Jar Companion (stamps), Orange Fizz, Night Shift, Summer Splash, Kraft (Card Stock), Vellum,Β Steel Grey & Black Licorice (dye inks) πŸ™‚
