Freshly Made Sketches Guest Designer, Week 3! :)

Hello again! I’m happily enjoying my third week of contributing with the Freshly Made Sketches crew! You can check out their great challenge blog HERE.

And here is this week’s sketch:

And my card:

I took a little creative interpretation when creating the layout on this. ๐Ÿ˜‰! I stenciled the background and die cut that portion. I die cut all the other pieces and adhered them in order after stamping the sentiment and <3. I love this Paper Smooches city skyline! I added some patterned paper and stitching and voila! ๐Ÿ™‚

I thought this would be a fun hello card to pop into the mail!

Supplies I used: Paper Smooches Super 2 dies and All Year Cheer for the Hello. The stenciled background isย  Altenew’s Halftone and then paper isย  Ombre Stripes from Lil’ Inkers! ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks so much for stopping by! And thanks to the FMS for being so awesome to me this month! ๐Ÿ™‚ Great fun!

Take care– Jill ๐Ÿ™‚

More PS September! :)

I thought I’d share a couple more Star Cards I made with Paper Smooches September release! I feel like I have barely cracked the surface of possibilities yet! You can find my previous celebratory Paper Smooches post HERE. I also used the cute new Feathered Friends set HERE.

These cards are made with the new die set, Super Star dies! โค

hawkins_jill_miss your face_00_WmEeeeep I love the stars with the City Super 2 dies! I watercolored the background with distress inks for this one.

hawkins_jill_miss your face_WmAnd the sentiment is from Fun & Flirty! ๐Ÿ™‚

The next one is made with the same Super Star dies and sentiment set, Fun & Flirty! I’m telling you, that is a fantastic sentiment set! ๐Ÿ™‚

hawkins_heybeautiful_wmJust a touch of watercolor for an easy background. The hard part is letting it dry! ๐Ÿ˜‰

hawkins_heybeautiful_00_wmI thought it was fun to trim up with Star frame into strips and create this card.

Best Day Evah

Having some more fun with the June Paper Smooches Challenge! ๐Ÿ™‚ Layers!

This card is waaaaay simpler in the layer department than my last card. You can see that one HERE. I still want to layer all the things after those hearts. ๐Ÿ˜‰

hawkins_jill_best day_wmI rubbed some distress inks on the bottom layer and flicked some water. I then adhered the navy blue skyline. I thought this sentiment was fun to complete the card.

I’m once again playing along with the June Paper Smooches Challenge: Layers!! Check it out! ๐Ÿ™‚
