My son would paint the world orange if he could, so I always try to work in his requested color. šŸ™‚ This is a pretty direct take on the sketch, except that I moved the sentiment up. I simply stamped and die cut everything. I then used some orange caution washi strip down the side. I mounted it all up on foam tape for a little something! šŸ™‚hawkins_jill_monster_wm

These monsters get a workout around here! šŸ™‚

Eye Like You

Here’s my take on MFT Sketch Challenge #311. Always a delight to have a good read over at the MFT Card Challenges blog!photo

I wanted to play along, and but had to be expeditious! Even making just the quickest of cards, is such a great way to end the day!hawkins_jill_eye-like-you hawkins_jill_eye-like-you_00_wmI just masked some circles for these little guys, and then did some quick stamping. This is a set that will get inked often for kiddo’s birthday parties! šŸ™‚

This card ended up pretty simple in the end and nothing like I sat down to do. I always think that’s funny! šŸ™‚

I die cut both the die cuts I used, and I think the result was good! šŸ™‚ My stitching went a little wrong, but I just added more to make it work. Ha!

MFT Challenges, Another Twofer

Here’s my take on MFT Sketch Challenge #308 and Color Challenge #56! My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration Blog <<<<<<.photo Once again, I’m able to combine the two!

hawkins_jill_dinomiteThis little dino from You’re Rawr-some, is a little cutie! I especially love the T-Rex and his sentiment. I can’t wait to use him next! šŸ™‚ I used Zig Clean Color pens to watercolor her, and Distress ink for the background I masked off.hawkins_jill_dinomite_00I wanted to use this color combo, but was thinking Holiday card. Aren’t we all?! <3! But then, I took a right turn and made a chicky dino card instead. There is some sparkle (that never photographs) in the tree/plant/hearts, that in person, adds just the right touch.Ā  IĀ  had to cut off the grass I was originally using for the sentiment. It was too *all up in the dino’s grill*. LOL šŸ™‚

Here’s my take on MFT Sketch Challenge #305 and Color Challenge #56! My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration Blog.photo

 

 Thought it would be fun to the combine the two!

I am a fan of the funky Fuse Green. šŸ™‚  Basically I die cut, stamped, and scored this card base, putting it all together with foam tape. I changed the oval to a circle, only because I like circles better! Ha!!

Hedgehugs | MFT Sketch 302

Here’s my take on MFT Sketch Challenge #302! My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration Blog! Wow, I barely missed a few MFT Sketch Challenges in over a 1.5 years, and then I missed a lot of them! Ah, Life. ā¤ šŸ˜‰photoI just enjoyed an awesome crafty weekend full of laughs, and hugs, and craftiness! I am having a hard time adjusting back to reality. šŸ™‚ To hug your crafty friends in person is priceless, and then I met so many new friends too. Just AWESOME and so heartwarming! ā¤

Anywho, they were all generous to share their stamps, so I borrowed these, and made this cutie card. šŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_hedgehugs_wmThis little guy! Too fun! šŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_hedgehugs_00_wmI used Copic markers to color him, and kept the rest pretty clean and simple.

Hello, Sunshine | MFT Sketch 294

Here’s my take on MFT Sketch Challenge #294! My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration Blog! It’s so worth hopping over there to read Susan’s posts! You will not be disappointed. Ever. šŸ™‚photoGeesh, I almost missed this week’s sketch. I thought about it a few times and then bam, it’s Monday night! Phew. Squeaking in with this little number.

hawkins_jill_hello sunshine_wmI stamped and embossed some of the stamping. Then I watercolored in the image and background with my Zig markers, via an acrylic block. Sometimes, that just works better for me, depending on the look I’m going for.

hawkins_jill_hello sunshine_00_wmI mixed up the elements of the sketch a bit, since the chameleon had to be on the right, for tail purposes. šŸ™‚
