MFT Sketch 285. That is All.

Here’s my take on MFT Sketch Challenge #285. My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration Blog!photoI looked at the sketch, and all I could recall was linear, so I ran with that, as you can clearly tell. πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_that is all_wmI inked up the Distressed Patterns stamp in all different colors. Sometimes I pick them out in advance. Often, I wing it as I go. This being a prime example. I’m not sure which tactic is better? But I tend to get more of an atypical combo if I wing it! πŸ™‚hawkins_jill_that is all_00_wmI do love me some lines. And this sentiment. It is far from being a clear stamp anymore. πŸ˜‰

My card is made with supplies at My Favorite Things. Die-namics: Blueprints 24, Stamps: Penguins in Paradise and Distressed Patterns. Card stock: Smooth White.

MFT Sketch #239

photoMFT Sketch Challenge #239 on My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration is starting TODAY!

Here is this week’s sketch:MFT_WSC_239This is my card for the week:

hawkins_jill_hope your day_00_wmI so enjoy this little sunny dude! πŸ™‚ The Abstract stencil and background…well, I’ve mentioned my adoration of these many-a-times too! I stamped and embossed the Build-able Blooms for the sun. It ended up a little more subtle than intended, but, alas πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_hope your day_wmI squeaked in a second card. This one was made in probably five different sit-downs, so it feels a bit disjointed. But, meh, I think it’s kinda fun still πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_don't know_wm…and I think my stitching went a bit awry πŸ™‚

MFT Summer School: Complementary

PrintDay TWO of fun on the MFT Blog! MFT Summer School: Session Two! Sharpen your pencils! πŸ™‚

Today’s lesson:PrintComplementary sometimes just happens, but it is a quick way to pick your colors if you get stuck. They are opposite colors on the color wheel…such as yellow/purple, orange/blue, red/green…Β You’ll definitely want to hop over to the MFT Blog to see what Susan wrote up for today’s lesson. That’s where the real schooling is πŸ˜‰

There is also a great download for your school notebook πŸ˜‰

Here’s my card:

hawkins_jill_you're the coolest_wmThis was a very happy accident. I wasn’t making this card! I was going to edge a piece of card stock with this Notebook Edge die:

As I did, I got this negative piece and thought it was TOO fun to just leave in the scrap pile…so these little strips happened instead. Hence this card.

hawkins_jill_you're the coolest__00_wmThis reminds me so much of that pom-pom fringe that was used to often in the 70’s/80’s? I remember pink curtains somewhere in my world that had that pom-pom fringe. Awesome. πŸ™‚ Stretching those supplies! Hooray! πŸ™‚

Hope you can check out all the surely fun projects today too πŸ™‚ The My Favorite Things blog is where to hop to!

My Favorite Things meets Simple Stories!

bd5c3-mftandsimplestoriesToday I highly recommend checking out the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog: cardchallenges.com. In fact, if you haven’t see all the fun over there this week with Simple Stories, you may want to start HERE from Monday! Because: Our team has created some super fly stuff and Prizes. πŸ™‚

The kind folks at Simple Stories were so generous in sending us some of their fabulously fun summery & rad goodies! I totally enjoy: So Rad! Let me tell you, it is Rad.

Here’s a card a made with So Rad and of course, some of My Favorite Things…including some of the fun new June goodness!

I’m a big fan of stickers, have been since I was a kid. I don’t tend to use them on my cards, but now I’m thinking…hmmmm? Why? Lol. These stickers are fabulous because you can also peel them up and re-stick them elsewhere, if you err. Ask me how I know! πŸ˜‰
