I was pretty excited about inlaying these stars in on a card. Um, bad idea jeans. Different sizes, different shapes. You know you are crazy when… πŸ™‚hawkins_jill_one_wmI didn’t have a plan when I started this card, but it worked out swimmingly for a first birthday, in the end! πŸ™‚

My card is made with the following supplies at My Favorite Things: Die-namics: Wonky Stitched Square STAX, Die-namics Stars in the Sky – Vertical, Rolling Hills and Big Numbers. Stamps: BB The Whole Herd. Card stock and Black Licorice Hybrid ink.

My Favorite Things: Sketch #253

photoMFT Sketch Challenge #253 is jumpin‘ on the My Favorite Things Challenge & InspirationΒ Blog!

This week’s sketch:

MFT_WSC_253Here is my take this week:

hawkins_jill_smore fun_00_wmEEEEEEEEEE!! S’mores! So tasty and super fun to die cut for cards.hawkins_jill_smore fun_wmI stamped up a second card for this Sketch because I had to use this little doggy. I initially wanted this Top Dog set specifically for this dog. Too cute:

hawkins_jill_it's been_wmI colored this pup with Copics, straight up. No shading, no nothing. I don’t know that I have ever done that before and I’m not quite sure why? LOL. πŸ™‚ It’s weird how this card photo shows variation in the brown, because in person, it’s a solid, even brown. Wacky. My best skill is not card photography, but I have been working on it little by little. πŸ™‚

MFT Sketch #244

photoHey hey! MFT Sketch Challenge #244 is on My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog today!

This week’s sketch:MFT_WSC_244My card for this week:

hawkins_jill_dew_WMSoda POP! And DEW!? Dewey love? Yes we Dew! πŸ™‚ haaaaa! Laina rocks great designs. I also completely enjoy this stencil and cover up. Ahhh September new releases! πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_dew_00_WM

I have a second card to share using this sketch. It is quite a loose take. I used the building as the “tag” and went from there. I usually look at a sketch to start and don’t look at it again. That’s how things get a little wacky, often. πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_you're sweet friend_wmI decided I had *medium* control issues after making this. The watercolors want to flow, not be controlled. πŸ˜‰

hawkins_jill_you're sweet friend_00_wmSuch a fun set nonetheless. And I’ll keep practicing. πŸ™‚

Here is this week’s sketch:
MFT_WSC_241This is my card for the week:hawkins_jill_lets be friends_wmThe Encouraging Words stamps set is fabulous.

hawkins_jill_lets be friends_00_wmI love to inlay die cuts, so I couldn’t wait to try out these Scribbled Rose dies. More to come with those! πŸ™‚

Next up: MFT Summer School! Session Three, Day Three πŸ™‚ Hop over to the MFT Blog for the REAL lesson and all the link ups to fabulous cards by the MFT Team! πŸ™‚

PrintToday’s Lesson: Hard vs. soft – For every hard line or edge you place on a card, the design is balanced by some softness, whether it be from a texture (like a ribbon) or a shape (like a circle); too much hard or soft might not work.

Here’s my take on this lesson:

hawkins_jill_for you_wmIt is definitely a literal take on this lesson, being that I used soft felt and all πŸ˜‰ But my thinking was the angles added an edge.hawkins_jill_for you_00_wmIf you missed my cards from earlier lessons this week, you can click on these links: Monday & Tuesday.

MFT Sketch #239

photoMFT Sketch Challenge #239 on My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration is starting TODAY!

Here is this week’s sketch:MFT_WSC_239This is my card for the week:

hawkins_jill_hope your day_00_wmI so enjoy this little sunny dude! πŸ™‚ The Abstract stencil and background…well, I’ve mentioned my adoration of these many-a-times too! I stamped and embossed the Build-able Blooms for the sun. It ended up a little more subtle than intended, but, alas πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_hope your day_wmI squeaked in a second card. This one was made in probably five different sit-downs, so it feels a bit disjointed. But, meh, I think it’s kinda fun still πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_don't know_wm…and I think my stitching went a bit awry πŸ™‚

Here’s this week’s sketch:

Here is my card for the week:

hawkins_jill_ForYoutoo_wmI blended on some Grout Gray ink at the last-minute on the floral layer. I just thought it was too stark ;). I used the sketch upside down and then *tucked in* most of the banner. πŸ™‚
