hawkins_jill_gold star_wmThe new Fringe die has lots of possibilities. Here I die cut the Fringe with the Stitched Basic Edges die, to add a little interest. πŸ™‚

(The Delicata Gold ink holds the embossing powder, but I decided to add another layer with Versamark as well. πŸ˜‰ )

PrintBonus! Today is Day Four of MFT Summer School: Session Three. Today is all about Color Saturation. Hop over to the MFT Blog to read about it all. Susan R. Opel will school us all real good! πŸ˜‰

Color Saturation – The intensity of color. The more white or gray that’s added, the less saturated the color becomes. Cards tend to work best when the saturation of the colors are on a similar scale.

Here is my card: I squealed with delight when I finished. You do that too sometimes right? πŸ˜‰

hawkins_jill_think happy_wmI definitely lean toward the bright/darker colors rather than the muted ones. I am often in awe of people who use the lighter colors successfully. I love these saturated colors together! πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_think happy_00_wmI die cut the new Four Way Chevron Cover-up several times and pieced together. Then I die cut that panel with the Stripes cover-up and pieced that together. Crazy clapping ensued. You just never know what things are going to look like and I do not enjoy wasting time. LOL πŸ™‚ This delights me ever so very much!

Here’s my card for the week: hawkins_jill_good luck love_wmI mean: Really. Too too! I thought the stitching added the finishing touch. But you know you’re crazy when you are stitching on a piece of card stock that is less than 1/8″ wide. πŸ˜‰hawkins_jill_good luck love_00_wmMy Happy Panda card was made with the following supplies by My Favorite Things:

Sweet Sunday Sketch: #272

Hope your weekend has gone swimmingly! It’s time for the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!! #272!

Here’s the sketch for this week:

Here is my card for the week:

hawkins_jill_you're my person_wmOh Happy Panda! πŸ™‚ This font is a favorite of mine too. Fabulous set!

hawkins_jill_you're my person_00_wm

These Stitched Basic Edges get a lot of use. Endless versatility.

I stamped this sentiment using the coveted MISTI tool. I saved up for many a months and finally gave in to ordering one. (No help from this group of Sweet Sunday Stampers to resist it! Enablers. Geesh. πŸ˜‰ ) I haven’t used it but this once (so far), and I must say for the ability to stamp this sentiment repeatedly, making it flawlessly solid, I like it a lot. πŸ˜‰

Be sure to check out the Sweet Sunday Sketch Blog for all the different takes! I love all the diversity of styles each week. These ladies are oh so fun! πŸ™‚

It’s a Sweet Sunday Sketch: #267

Today: Sweet Sunday for the Sketch Challenge!! #267!! Go see what everyone made this week! Here’s my card:

hawkins_jill_You Are My Fav_wmI believe I recently entered a *pink* phase. Ha! For the background on this one, I used Versamark to smoosh on the stencil, letting it shift around some to give that look. It’s definitely one of those things that is more visible in person vs. the photograph. The technique gave sort of a shadowy arrow look. πŸ™‚
