I’m So Glad I Picked You!

Happy FRIDAY! What a week. Phew. 

Today, I’m sharing this floraltastic card using the Garden Blooms dies and the Kindness Sampler! ❀

I laid up some strips of cardstock and then die cut the flowers. I then overlaid the flower outlines on top in white. Finally, I stamped the sentiment as the stem to the flowers, and added some leaves. Fun! 

These flowers are awesome and so versatile! A perfect addition to the PS lineup! πŸ™‚

The new Paper Smooches June release can be found HERE! πŸ™‚

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!  πŸ™‚

Paper Smooches Fun!

I’m poppin’ in because the new Paper Smooches June release is available HERE! I was going to share my favorites from this release, but then the list just included everything, for one reason or another! Haaaa! So be sure to check it all out! πŸ™‚

I thought I’d share this fun card I made with the new Garden Greetings stamp set and dies. This set combines the sentiment and images, all in one! Super quick and easy for cards! πŸ™‚

I colored this “hi” with Copic makers and added some Glossy accents. I added it to the Tag Stitched Die that I die cut from patterned paper! (Yay me, using PP!)

I then busted out some old school corrugated paper and added the tags to a card. Kinda fun. Kinda retro, right? Haaa! πŸ™‚

While I’m here, thought I’d share these cards I made for my son’s teachers, as end of the year cards. I’m sure they need a summer break too, BIG time! So I ran with that theme. I’ll be sending these along with some summer goodies as a HUGE thank you for an awesome first year in Elementary School. Phew. I can’t believe it’s almost wrapped up! I will not cry. I will not cry. I’ll totally cry.Β  πŸ™‚

I used some Frosted Lace stickles to create an “icey” look. Kinda fun, but photographs like muck. haaaa! Better in person, thank goodness! πŸ˜‰

The little smiley is from the previously released Pineapple Crush set. ❀

I rubbed on some Persimmon Distress Ink to give the Popsicles a little touch, but it pretty much all soaked in to the paper. I have a knack for that too. πŸ˜‰

And of course, googley eyes! πŸ™‚

For this I used the Cool Treats dies. These are a staple! So so so fun! I also used the sparky Summer Sampler set! I just partially inked the sentiment stamps and stacked the words that way. It is probably MUCH easier to cut the stamp, but, I have issues. LOL!!

Getting in the summer grove!! Yay!

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you Relax and Chill!Β  πŸ™‚

I stamped all these balloons in white ink, and then I stamped over them again, in an ombre type fashion. πŸ™‚

The Celebrate die cut is from the Let’s Celebrate Icons dies. The “Boom” and “Bang” are from the Summer Sampler. A fave! ❀

These little cutie owls are from Paper Smooches Feathered Friends. I stamped them all and used my Zig pens to add a little watercolor. I added some Wink of Stella after that, to give them a little shimmer! πŸ™‚ So cute in person!hawkins_jill_sending-sunshine_wm

The Feathered Friends have coordinating dies, which I also used. This fun sentiment is from the Paper Smooches stamp set, Summer Sampler. It’s a great one to have in your supplies! πŸ™‚

Thanks for stopping in! πŸ™‚ Have a great week!

Paper Smooches September!

I am extremely excited to take part in celebrating Paper Smooches September release! (I may have squealed a wee little bit! πŸ™‚ ) I am a big fan of Paper Smooches ❀ . That’s no secret though, especially if you saw my collection from over the years! Shhhh πŸ˜‰

I was able to use the new die set, Super Star dies! Of course, I enjoy its versatility completely.. Stars are always a good idea! Always! πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_bang_00_wmThis PS release follows suit with every other one: Chock full of fantastic (and versatile) dies and sweet stamps. I love to mix them and use them in different ways. πŸ™‚hawkins_jill_bang_wmThese stars in a line speak to my graphic loving heart. So many possibilities. I kept this one slightly simple, with strips of card stock pieced and then die cut. I finished it off with some stamping from the Summer Sampler. I even attempted to make this all straight! Haaa! πŸ™‚

Naturally, I had to make a few more cards. Because: New dies, people. New. Dies. πŸ˜‰

hawkins_jill_awesomestars_wmThere are many different stars in this new set. Which makes me happy! For this card, I used the largest star, as well as the star frame. Such fun with some googley eyes! πŸ™‚hawkins_jill_awesomestars_00_wmI also used the Awesome die. Literally and figuratively. πŸ™‚

Be sure to hop over to the Paper Smooches blog today to check out more September fun there! I’ll be back again this week, sharing a couple more cards I made with the new Super Star dies. You might find them, or these on the PS Blog today? Just sayin’. πŸ˜‰

Ginormous thanks to Kim for having me along this month! You continue to make the best things to create with! ❀

Thanks for popping by today!

hawkins_jill_popsicle_00_0wmOk, so between this Flav-or-Ice die and the super fun sentiments in this Summer Sampler set, I was smitten!
