Sweet Sunday: #286

Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #286 rolls out today!  πŸ™‚

Here’s this week’s sketch:

Here is my card for the week: I sort of twisted up the elements a week bit, but they are there! πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_I don't know_00_wmThis card was one of those accidents. I was watercoloring this Concentric Circle stencil for a different idea and then, I lifted it off and thought: Hmmmmmmm? So I stamped it :). I couldn’t decide if I should add more to it or not? I feel if that debate goes on for several minutes, the answer is: No. Stop. LOL. πŸ™‚ hawkins_jill_I don't know_wm

I wanted the sentiment to bleed out a bit…so I stamped with Grout Gray Hybrid a couple of times, then I stamped it with the Steel Blue dye ink, giving it this slight bleed.

Other than that, I kept it super simple in the end. The die cut panel and matte helps give it a finished look.

MFT Sketch #243

photoBuckle up, MFT Sketch Challenge #243 is on My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration posts up today!!

This week’s sketch:MFT_WSC_243My card for the week:

hawkins_jill_make happy_00_wmThis one is a doozy to write instructions for, that don’t sound wack…die cut the die cut and then die cut that die cut…etc. Several die cutting and inlay steps…but such cool results! That checkerboard! Weeeeee!

hawkins_jill_make happy_wmI made another card previously (for MFT Summer School) using this same method. You can see it HERE. I still want to do a myriad of colors with this checkerboard. That’s on my list for September/October πŸ˜‰

I squeaked in a second card last night for this awesomely versatile sketch:

hawkins_jill_bear hug_wmI could use several of this card to send out. ❀

hawkins_jill_bear hug_00_wmI used foam tape to pop the frame up. Adds a little something πŸ˜‰

MFT Summer School: Let me take your temperature, Color

MFT_SummerSchool3_MFTTVMy Favorite Things: Summer School Session Three rolls on! The final hoorah.
PrintColor Temperatures – Color hues to create a mood. Neutral (black, white, brown, gray), Cool (blues, purples, greens), and Warm (reds, yellows, oranges).

You want to pop over to the MFT Blog and read this lesson, along with the whole week if you missed those. Good stuff. You will be happy.

Here’s my take on the lesson: Neutral.hawkins_jill_sorry crash_wmThese little Bionic Bots are oh so fun. I thought this would make a good card for someone not feeling well or for someone needing a little pick-me-up. πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_sorry crash_00_wmHope you’ve learned a few things on the My Favorite Things blog this week. The MFT design teams rock. And the teacher? Well, we all know she rocks. πŸ™‚

Here is this week’s sketch:MFT_WSC_240This is my card for the week: One of my favorite Sketch cards to date. LOVE these dies.

hawkins_jill_you got this_wmI used a Fuse Green card base and stamped the new Wonky Chevron background on the inside. Adds a little fun for the recipient πŸ™‚ “You Got This” = Awesomesauce.

hawkins_jill_you got this_00_wmI really enjoyed this week’s sketch, so I made another card. Then I had ideas for at least three more, but, it was almost midnight. πŸ˜‰ Some other day…

hawkins_jill_congrats_wmThose little flags use the new August released Fringe die! Oh goodness, that’s a fun one too! πŸ™‚ The Primitive White base gives a nice warmth to the card.

hawkins_jill_congrats_00_wmThis one is being mailed to a friend…and it is WAY overdue. 😦
