Hugs!

Here’s my take on MFT Sketch Challenge #314 and MFT Color Challenge #60!

photo I arrived home late from a school meeting last night, but still wanted to make something. Our household has been under the weather, and I was behind on creating anything! Ahhh! 🙂

I was itching to inlay something, and of course, the strips of card stock is always a fave of mine to do!

I wasn’t sure how it would look with the strips on an angle, but I like it! It’s getting mailed today!hawkins_jill_hugs_wm

I rotated the sketch, so the HUGS is the big rectangle, and the nod to the then vertical piece, is my stitching. I couldn’t decide what to do for that element, but I think the stitching turned out fun, albeit a little off from where I intended. Ha! I held my breath as I started stitching, and as I did that little piece at the bottom. I wanted them aligned, and I wasn’t sure where my needle left off! Oh silliness 🙂

Sending Hugs

Yesterday, I shared cards using non-holiday products for making Holiday cards. Today, I’m sharing a card I made using holiday products for non-holiday cards. 🙂 Did you follow that? I barely did! 😉 (Click HERE for yesterday’s post.)

I made this to send some healing hugs a little while back.

hawkins_jill_sendinghugs_wmI used the Winter Wonderland stamp set & dies. When I saw these little envelopes and mailbox, well, that was that. 🙂 It’s one of those stamp sets that I’m glad I have the matching dies for.hawkins_jill_sendinghugs_00_wm Fun with holiday supplies! Stretching those too!! 🙂 And of course, the Sketched Chevron Background stamp…which I think I have used on at least 90% of my cards since it arrived. 😉

There is a little time left to participate in Sketch Challenge #260 and over a week left for joining Color Challenge #36 on the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog! Tomorrow is the last MFT Sketch for 2015!! Wait, what?! Wow.

MFT Color Challenge #35

Today, Color Challenge #35 is on the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog! I hope you can hop on over to see what the rest of the Design Team made. Each person really brings their own unique style to their projects. I eagerly wait to read the posts myself! 🙂MFT_ColorChallenge_PaintBook_35Here is my card for this Color Challenge:

hawkins_jill_remember that_wmThe Amazing stamp set is a staple sentiment set. It’s font is simple (my fave!), and therefore can fit gracefully into any card type. And the Stitched Stars STAX is another staple. Products like these, are crafty money well spent in my book because of their versatility. Dig that. 🙂 hawkins_jill_remember that_00_wmI have another Color Challenge card waiting to be photographed. So I’ll post that one very soon too. I just can’t get a decent photo without the daylight. And well, it’s 10pm. Haaaa!! See you back for that card soon!

My Favorite Things: Sketch #257

photoMFT Sketch Challenge #257 begins today on the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration Blog! Hope you can sneak in some crafty time and join us this week!! 🙂

This week’s sketch:MFT_WSC_257Here is my take this week:

hawkins_jill_warmest thanks_wmI was scanning my supplies of what to use this week, and there were these little mice, in their winter warmth. 😉 I’m also in a blending phase, so I wanted to do that. Haaa! 😉 MFT Die inks are stellar for blending. Especially on the blending card. hawkins_jill_warmest thanks_00_wm Photos do not do the Sparkle card stock justice. It’s soooo sparkly in person! Ahhh sparkle. 🙂

I hope to be back later this week with another MFT card, time willing! The holidays are beginning to have their rippling effects on time… 🙂 Thoroughly enjoyable, but ripples nonetheless.

Inspiration…

Inspiration is EVERYWHERE. Literally.

Cath Edvalson has a new adventure: Hip and Hooray!! Well, I’ve always found Cath’s finds inspiring, so I wanted to participate in her inaugural Tuesday’s Take…details found HERE.

Tuesday's Take LargeYou can participate in these challenges as well. There are most certainly not limited to papercrafters, just your imagination. 🙂

This was the image she selected to inspire…and boy does it ever! Colors, pencils, rainbow…ahhhh! 🙂 I just had to make something.

Rainbow Pencils | brightboldbeautiful.comI don’t do many pastel-ish colors, but I just am enamored with how this turned out…so maybe I should!? Hooray for Sherbet colors! 🙂 hawkins_jill_hi two_wmEnjoyable.

MFT Sketch #242

photoMFT Sketch Challenge #242 on My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration begins today!

Here is this week’s sketch:MFT_WSC_242My card for the week: hawkins_jill_hi_wmI am obviously completely enjoying this new Four Way Chevron Cover-Up from the August release. 🙂 🙂

hawkins_jill_hi_00_wmI die cut the Four Way Chevron many times and pieced it together. Then I die cut that whole thing with the Stripes Cover-up and pieced those in. And then die cut that whole thing with the Rectangle STAX. Dang–so so fun! 🙂

Check out the card I made for the final session of MFT Summer School HERE. Other pieces. Two cards. Dynamite.
