Totally Adorable

Happy Easter! I hope those who celebrate had a wonderful Easter! Our weather was unreal here today, and I can’t remember a nicer Easter day, weather wise.

I thought I’d pop in to share some more fun from this month’s Technique Tuesday release! They can be found HERE!

I used purple and it all turned out OK! LOL! I am not a huge fan of purple, but I did try to it give it a few nods last month. Too funny!

This card uses the new fun set, Bunny Owl. (You cannot beat this price point for a cute lil’ set!)

I also used the new Kids Are Cool stamp set, which I ❀ ,and need more time in the day to use all the stamps there! πŸ™‚ I think if you journal or scrapbook, this set would be extra perfecto for you!I also used the Memo Pad Card die. This die never fails me. πŸ™‚ I used my Zig pens to watercolor this cutie, and added some googley eyes, of course.

And while we are here, enjoying some spring cards, I thought I’d share this silly one I made using the Bailey the Bunny stamp set. That tooshie is the best!

I was definitely doing some snickering while making this lil’ nutty one! πŸ™‚

This sentiment is from Sassy Family. If you haven’t checked out the latest series of stamps in the “Sassy” line, I recommend them highly. I think they are super funny!! I love to send cards with laughs. πŸ™‚ These bunnies were colored with Copic markers.

Here’s to everyone having a great week! I’m hoping to catch up on some stuff sometime this week? Yikes– I’m a bit behind on things–no pun intended! Haaaa!

Take care–

Sunny Day!

Happy Wednesday! Since we haven’t seen the sun in sooooo long, I decided I would just have to make my own! ❀

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!

Love Birds

Sharing another card the September Paper Smooches Anything Goes Challenge! I’m hoping this one arrived at its destination by now. πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_lovebirds_wmI had previously stamped and watercolored a bunch of little birdies from Paper Smooches Feathered Friends, which made it quick and fun to make a few cards!hawkins_jill_lovebirds_00_wmI hand drew in the line on the bottom and then added some ink blending. Fortunately, it looks a lot smoother in person! πŸ™‚ The little heart is from the Heart Die Frame. I just added some sparkle! Oh, and I colored the edge of a white card base to perfectly match the card details. Whoot! πŸ™‚

The Feathered Friends have coordinating dies, which I also used.

You Are My Sunshine

Love these little cuties from Paper Smooches Feathered Friends!

I had to get busy with a couple more cards for the September Paper Smooches Anything Goes Challenge! (I’ll post the other one soon!)

hawkins_jill_sunshine_wmI also used PS’s new Heart Frame Die. Gah! Perfecto for this happy little couple.hawkins_jill_sunshine_00_wmSuch fun! I also used the Feathered Friends coordinating dies. Paper Smooches sentiment is from the Fun and Flirty set. The tiny heart was laying on my desk, so I’m not sure where this is from? Haaa!

Six! 6! Seis!

Geesh! I have not made a card in many days! I don’t know how long it has been, but awhile. Mid-August to Mid/Late September is action packed around here! It’s been fun/busy/crazy for certain, but I am looking forward to regularly scheduled programming again. Or Christmas break, whichever gets here first! πŸ™‚

Anyway, a quick share today to freshen’ things up around here!

hawkins_jill_6_00_wmI made some little gift cards for my son’s friends a while back. Well, he wanted a fish birthday card too! So voila! πŸ™‚hawkins_jill_6_wmI used Avery Elle’s super fun fish: That Bites. Of course, searching for this stamp set link, I see there are many new Avery Elle stamps that I will be adding to my wishlist! Dang. Love that peeps keep making the Awesome! πŸ™‚

Oh, also, I used Avery Elle’s Numbered Balloons.

Here’s the fun cards I made prior (in progress, that is.):

hawkins_jill_fish_wmI did actually remember to take a pic after I finished them, but no time to hunt it down now! πŸ™‚

Ok…gotta run! Happy Birthday to my favorite little man! I love him so. ❀

Take care all- Jill

Hey Beautiful

Happy Long Weekend, USA! I had some fun coloring and arranging the new Feathered Friends from Paper Smooches! You can check out another release post I did HERE. (I’ll have another coming soon!) πŸ™‚

Fantastically coincidentally, the September Paper Smooches Challenge is Anything Goes! Whoooot! Lots of time, and the sky is the limit on this one, crafty friends! πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_hey B_00_wmAren’t these cute little birds so tweet?! What fun to color them! I love having the coordinating dies too. I often don’t, so it was fun to use them here, especially with those little birdie legs! πŸ™‚hawkins_jill_hey B_wmFor coloring these cuties, I used my Zig watercolor pens. For the background, I blended on some Distress Inks in Twisted Citron and an Orange (I can’t recall which, LOL.). I purposely made them a bit splotchy to get a wee bit of texture. πŸ˜‰

Paper Smooches sentiment I used is from the Fun and Flirty set. ❀

Smiles to the Teacher!

I had to make a card with Technique Tuesday’s new planner stamps! TT (and Teri! #TArules) had me at the smiling ruler! I mean, really. I am a fan. A big fan. πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_teacher_wmThese stamps just make me happy. Is that so wrong? Nope. πŸ™‚ I watercolored these with my Zig markers and used some patterned paper for the card base. I must use more PP. Must. I have put a moratorium on obtaining anymore til what I have is gone. It will be dust by the time that happens. LOL.

hawkins_jill_teacher_00_wmThere are the NEW Planner Stamps HERE and HERE. Student and School! ❀ Oh and I used a fave: TT’s Clipboard die. And also: World’s Greatest and Sending Smiles.

Technique Tuesday is also having a fantastically fun week with Random Acts of Cardness! You can learn about it HERE. I’ll be sharing a couple snaps of some cards I made for this soon. (AND eventually a bunch of other TT cards I see I have not posted here yet? I send them to TT and forget to come back and write posts after the release happens. Blergh. I’ll catch up someday…right?)

Happy Back to School to all the kiddos and parents that are both happy and those that need BIG HUGS too! I’m in the later category. But eventually in both, I’m guessing! πŸ™‚

Thanks for stopping by!
