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! ๐Ÿ™‚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. ๐Ÿ™‚ 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!

MFT Color Challenge #33

Color Challenge #33 is on the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog!

MFT_ColorChallenge_PaintBook_33I’m really enjoyed working with this combo because it evokes such coziness. Hence my cards for this Challenge:

hawkins_jill_let's cuddle_wmThis card makes me oh so happy! The new Chunky Chevron Cover up is AWESOME. Just so cool. The possibilities! ๐Ÿ™‚

For this card, I cut the cover up out of Sweet Tooth and then inlaid all the pieces. After, I overlaid the hollow Steel Gray cover up in the opposite direction. I shrieked a bit! Die cutting and stamping are definitely my happy. ๐Ÿ™‚

hawkins_jill_let's cuddle_00_wmI made another card with this combo, this time using the chevron pieces only ๐Ÿ™‚

hawkins_jill_the snuggle_wmAgain, The Snuggle is Real. I keep joking I may need an intervention to stop using these two products. Of course, I’m kidding. Or am I? Haaaaa! ๐Ÿ™‚

hawkins_jill_the snuggle_00_wmThis color combo just says: Winter. ๐Ÿ™‚

MFT Color Challenge #32

It’s the 2nd Thursday of the month! That means Color Challenge #32 is on the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog!

MFT_ColorChallenge_PaintBook_32Here’s my card for the week:

hawkins_jill_let it snow_00_wm(This stinker was so oddly challenging to photograph.)

I think these little dies to the Winter Wonderland set are so fun on their own. You get double duty from your die sets this way! ๐Ÿ™‚hawkins_jill_let it snow_wmI made a quick tag (& added a little sparkle!) with some of my remaining die cuts. Have I mentioned my love of the Sketched Chevron Background? I think I’ve used it on just about everything since it arrived in my house. LOL ๐Ÿ™‚

CC14Today is the next Color Challenge #14 on My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog…weeeeeee!

Go over there today & find out all the details! Here’s a peek: (hint: I rather seriously enjoy these dies! ๐Ÿ™‚

hawkins_jill_CC14_detail_WMI also quite enjoy these Color Challenges and I sure hope you join us and give it a whirl! ๐Ÿ˜‰

The color combos we use are just so fabulous–they really inspire me and make me try new things! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Sooooo, I had to make another card–make that TWO cards! I am all about the expeditious cards this week–which is also a challenge for me! ๐Ÿ™‚

hawkins_jill_MFT CC14_thankful_WMhawkins_jill_MFT CC14_thankful_01_WMI’ve always avoided violet, and look at how this color combo makes me like it! I had one of those aha moments! So silly, but true… And here’s yet one more card because the first went so quickly, I still had a few minutes to create another:

hawkins_jill_MFT CC14_grateful_WMTHIS one is even more mind boggling…Wild Wisteria flowers!? I’m so thrilled that I stamped violet flowers on a one layer card (hooray for ONE layer!) and actually liked it! So here’s to stepping out of your groove–try something new! You may be wow’d with the results… I certainly am! ๐Ÿ™‚ I crushed many of my “I never ___” this week! I hope you’re inspired too ๐Ÿ™‚

inspired by…

I thought it would be fun to make a card “inspired by…”. After all, that is a main point for the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog!!

I’m definitely not a “pink” person…not to say that I don’t use it, I just tend to use less of it. However, in the spirit of inspiration, I sat at my desk recalling Susan R. Opel’s lovely first card for the MFT C&I blog and whipped this one up! (And I used the sketch from this week!)
