Family Laughs

Happy (Technique) Tuesday! The new Technique Tuesday release can be found HERE!

I soooooo enjoy THIS new set from Technique Tuesday called Sassy Family. I think sometimes a sentiment is all you need for a card. With two of these cards below, I did just that:

I would never ignore a call. πŸ™‚

For this card, I stamped in orange and heat embossed it clear. Then I added some patterned papers and some stitching to keep it simple.

This sentiment, I find particularly hilarious and OH SO TRUE! πŸ™‚Β  I scored the paper on this card before adding watercolor with Distress Inks. I was hoping the ink would pool up in the creases, but no such luck. It’s always an experiment with watercolor!

And of course, this sentiment above about the bathroom and silence, is my FAVORITE of this set. I just think is so funny and SO TRUE!! πŸ™‚ I think I might have one last sentiment to ink from this set? Otherwise, I’ve used them all. Such fun!

Don’t forget to check out the new stuff from Technique Tuesday HERE! Happy March!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello Sunshine! Stay Cooool

When I saw Ellen Hutson’s Mix It Up Challenge this month was with Paper Smooches, well, I had to jump in! I was so excited to mix it up with some super faves πŸ™‚ . I’m hoping I can sneak in another soon, since I have many things splayed across my desk already. Haaaa! πŸ™‚

Oh my word!! I cannot handle how cute this little bear is with these giant PS glasses! πŸ™‚ I think he might be struggling a bit, since his treat is upside down. πŸ˜‰hawkins_jill_sunshine-smooches_00

I clear heat embossed this little guy. I colored in the Sunshine with both Copic markers and colored pencils. I could not decide how I wanted it to look! πŸ™‚ I admittedly snickered when I finished this last night. Such fun! πŸ™‚

For this card, I used Ellen Hutson’s All Inside (and dies),Β  Bear Ware (and dies), and Warm Fuzzies. From Paper Smooches, I used the Rainbow Die and Glasses dies. SOOOO fun! πŸ™‚

I’m entering this in the Ellen Hutson March Mix It Up Challenge: Paper Smooches…I’m actually early this time, so be sure you check it out too!! πŸ™‚

Thanks for stopping by! Have an AWESOME sunshiney weekend!!

Somebunny Loves You…

Happy Wednesday! I thought I’d give a shout that the new Technique Tuesday goodies are released online! Oh happy day!

I was pretty excited when THIS new set from Technique Tuesday came out and now there is THIS one, called Sassy Family. I cannot capture how much I laughed when I first saw it! SO perfect! πŸ™‚

I’ll be back to share some cards with Sassy Family soon, but in the meantime, you can find the whole new March release HERE! Whooooooot!! πŸ™‚

I thought I’d share this card using the new Bailey the Bunny stamp set. I cannot resist a good bunny tail, and these bunnies are so cute together! πŸ™‚

awwwwwww! ❀hawkins_jill_somebunny_wm

Just to sweet! ❀

Bailey also has a die set, and that can be found HERE. I used just that die to create this delightful little number. πŸ™‚ Teehee. Chocolate bunnies!

I used a ❀ die, the Heart Strings die for the banners above. The sentiment is from another favorite sentiment set, You Aren’t Normal. ❀ ❀ #stampallthethings πŸ™‚hawkins_jill_might_wm

The keyword above is: Might. LOL! πŸ™‚

Oh, Deer

I was excited to ink up these new little cutie deer from the new Ellen Hutson Oh Deer set last night. I was anxiously awaiting Julie Ebersole’s new sets, and of course, she did not disappoint. πŸ™‚

I say “oh dear” a lot, and I thought it would be punny to make a little *party animal* scene. πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill-oh-deer I used a silver ink to stamp the background “confetti”, but when it was all said and done, it doesn’t have the sparkle I was hoping for. That’s ok, it’s still festive looking! Especially because she has lost control of her party hat. Haaaa! πŸ™‚hawkins_jill-oh-deer_00

I also used Ellen Hutson’s Bear Ware and dies for the fun party hats and cupcake! I clear heat embossed and colored on Bristol paper with my Zig markers, before die cutting everything out. I then used some Tumbled Glass and Peacock Feathers Distress Ink for the aqua background.

I’m entering this in the Essentials by Ellen February Pin-Sights Challenge. Check it out. I always love the jump start of inspiration!

hawkins_jill_granny_00

I quite enjoy how this card turned out! πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_granny_wm

I also used the new stamp set Let’s Party! πŸ™‚ I white heat embossed those stamps on the panel, and then blended on some Distress Inks. The word Celebrate is from the new Celebrate die set! I used my always-go-to paper strips and then die cut the word out. I think this card screams PARTY! πŸ™‚

You can check out all the fun new stuff from Technique Tuesday HERE!

I used my Zig pens to add some color to these cuties. πŸ™‚ I also used my go-to TT die, Memo Pad Card die.

It’s all about Birthdays!

Hey Hey!! Technique Tuesday has another fun release! Party!! Check it all out HERE! I don’t know about you, but I can NEVER have too many birthday cards ready to rock. NEVER! πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_birthday_00_wm

This sentiment from the new Many Candles Stamp Set, is too funny! πŸ™‚ I stamped the candles from the set repeatedly and use some Stickles to add a little glitter sparkle!hawkins_jill_birthday_wm

I thought it would be fun to stamp some white on kraft. I think this card rocks for giving a guy on his birthday. πŸ™‚ I double stamped and off stamped for a fun effect. πŸ™‚hawkins_jill_candles_00_wm

I also enjoy that this sentiment offsets the snarky one, right? Ha! πŸ™‚hawkins_jill_candles_wm

For this last Birthday card, I used the new TT set, Let’s Party! πŸ™‚ I think this stamp set screams festive, so I went with a very loose watercolor. It’s a party! πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_wish_wm

I’m used Distress Inks to color this fiesta!
