Celebrating 10!

My Favorite Things is celebrating 10 years!! How exciting! Happy Birthday to MFT, Kim, and the whole MFT team!! 🙂

I’m sneaking this in for the little bonus challenge this month. Details can be found HERE! For my use of 10, I used TEN FLOWERS!  🙂

hawkins_jill_darn great_wmThis color combo is not totally my thing, but I figured I’d share it anyway. 🙂

Here’s another card I made last year with the Buildable Blooms set. This one might be my favorite. 🙂

Hello Color!

Here’s my take on MFT Sketch Challenge #286. My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration Blog!photoI made a horizontal card which, feels a little foreign to me nowadays. 🙂

hawkins_jill_hello2_wmI used this MFT diagonal coverup, so the sketch took an angle by default. 😉

hawkins_jill_hello2_00_wmI die cut everything and then did some stitching. Finally, I added glossy accents to all the letters. I was on the fence about doing that, but it always adds a little pop of fun, I think. If only I didn’t get hand cramps from squeezing my Glossy Accents bottle. Haaaa! 🙂

Bonus! I used the colors from the Color Throwdown Challenge this week–#398! When I saw that awesome combo this week, I was hoping to get in on it 🙂 Success! So summery and spunky! Check out their Color Challenge this (and every) week HERE.

My card is made with supplies at My Favorite Things. Die-namics: Stitched Cover Up Companion Diagonal, and the Highrise Lower Case Alphabet. Card stock: Smooth White, Black Licorice, Limelight, Lemon Drop, Razzle berry, and Cherry Crisp.

Peeps!

This week is MFT Sketch Challenge #272! (My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog.)photoI have a weakness for iconic Peeps! Not so much eating them, but their sweetness! 😉

hawkins_jill_my favorite peep_wmPeep! 🙂

Totally random note, as I was making this, I just grabbed ink pads, not sure how many peeps it would take to complete the circle. And I just noticed they are ROYGBIV! Totally not intentional, and I love that Rainbow just happens. Haaaa! 🙂

Inspired by SRO! :)

Rockin’ along with MFT Sketch Challenge #270! (My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog.)photoThis may be my most literal take on any sketch ever. LOL. 🙂

For this card, I was inspired by the one and only, my friend, Susan R. Opel. Susan literally writes the blog on inspiration, so I find it fitting. ♥ SRO has an eye for fashion (and other fun) inspired card creations. Check out these examples of Susan’s awesome inspirations: HERE, HERE, and HERE. I mean, Yo! That’s fun. 🙂

Way back in October (?), I was flipping through TV channels late one night, and saw Julianna Margulies on Stephen Colbert. Checkout her spectacular Chevron dress!! 🙂 It stuck in my head, and I told Susan I would just have to make something inspired by it. 😉

Happy Valentine; MFT Sketch #264

photoSqueaking one in for the MFT Sketch Challenge this week: Sketch #264. (My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog.)
Here’s my take: Abstracting and label making love. ❤

hawkins_jill_happy valentine_00_wmAnd the Stitched Heart STAX! So <3. I put everything on a wonky angle, because apparently that’s what I do! 😉hawkins_jill_happy valentine_wmI used the Abstract Stencil, spraying pink & gray Copics with the Distress Marker Sprayer. It’s always on my desk, but I’m trying to clean and purge. So I moved it to a “better location” and it took me 10 minutes to find it. I think I function better in the organized chaos? Ha! 🙂

My card is made with the following supplies at My Favorite Things: Die-namics: Stitched Heart STAX, Wonky Stitched Rectangle STAX. Stamps: Label Maker Love. Stencil: Abstract. Card stock and Inks (Tickled Pink and Gravel Gray)

My Beaker Bubbles; MFT Sketch #263

photoAnother week, another MFT Sketch Challenge. Sketch #263 on the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog. Yana’s guest projects over there this month are fun!! 🙂


Here’s my take: Love. This. Chemistry. ❤
hawkins_jill_my beaker1_wm
I stamped gray on gray here, but the ink really soaked into the card stock overnight. Wacky.

Also, I believe this is a flask, not a beaker. But I color owls blue. So, you know. All is fair in creative endeavors, right? 😉

hawkins_jill_my beaker_00_wmLaina’s newly released sets for January make me so very happy! The minute I saw it, I knew there was Undeniable Chemistry! 🙂

My card is made with the following supplies at My Favorite Things: Die-namics: LLD Chemistry Set, Basic Edges, File Folder Edges, Wonky Stitched Rectangle STAX (LOVE!), Stitched Fishtail Banners. Stamps: Undeniable Chemistry. Card stock and Inks.

Thanks for stopping in!
