The Coloring Challenge Creations

Oh man! I’m having lots of fun with this coloring challenge. Need more info on the challenge. click here. Love this Thinking of you card using one of the flowers and the sentiment from the FSJ February stamp of the month!

Carson’s Birthday Card! I tucked this in his care birthday care package since he’s away at school.

Clean and simple with a touch of Washi Tape. Another one of the of the sentiments and flowers from the FSJ February stamp of the month!

This GinaK floral stamp really pops on the A2 scallop dies from HoneyBee. (umm these are my new favorite layering tool)

How fun is this chef card using some plaid paper from GinaK? Of course Valentines day is just 6 days away and I think this one will be for my hubby.

Off to color some more. It’s getting easier to blend my copics! the more you use something the easier it gets to use! At this point, I have been using so many markers I have not been recording colors. They are literally scattered all over my stamping table.

So here are the main supplies for the above cards. If you prefer to check out at one store, Simon Says Stamp has most of these products!


The 30 Day coloring challenge

Do you follow me on Instagram? (@jillmhilliard). Come follow me! Regardless, I joined a 30 day marker coloring challenge (by @Kathyrac) for the month of Feb. and I wanted to share the first several days with you.

The challenge is to color something everyday and share it to instagram. No stress, just a little coloring! Day 1 is from Honey Bee Stamps:

Day 2 is from Gina K designs called “Your on My Mind and in My Heart”

Dusted off the adorable Hog Heaven from My Favorite things for day 3. Love those piggies!

The new February Stamp of the Month- Orange Blossoms for day 4!

Finally, for Day 5 its the Chef from My Favorite things called Recipe for Happiness.

You don’t have to make cards right away with these. As I am now on to day 5– that’s a LOT of coloring and it will be a big pile of stuff to use. So I will be making cards as inspiration strikes. Tomorrow I will share some of the cards I created from a few of the above images.

Here are the stamps I used above. Almost everything is available at Simon Say Stamp!!!


Another Orange Blossom Card

Clean and simple for this one. The oranges really do fell like sunshine! So Cheery!

Check out how easy it is to color these oranges with ink blending in my video tutorial:

Introducing Orange Blossoms Stamp of the Month

The February Stamp of the month is Orange Blossoms, from Fun Stampers Journey. Available today, February 1! An undeniably beautiful stamp set that was a refreshing break from the snow, ice and frigid temps here in PA.

For this beauty I used simple masking. I stamped the sentiment 1st, then created a mask for the sentiment area and used a black marker for the faux layer. How fun that the Orange creamsicle cardstock was a perfect match!

Did you know that the orange blossom is a historical sign of good fortune and is the Florida State flower? Totally WISH was I was in Florida right now!

So far I have used just a few supplies. For this one I added Panpastels to the card base and some journey glaze to the orange. I colored all the images with these copics:

Typewriter Cards

The You’re Just my Type card kit come with an adorable die set that includes a typewriter die. Today I am sharing a few cards that I made with the exclusive dies that come with the card kit.

Its been many years since I made any card with a typewriter. I had a stamp once many years ago from SU. Guess what? Typewriter cards are so much fun!

They can be for all occasions! The cute alphabet paper is from the Follow year heart 6×6 stack. Totally lucky that it was a perfect match!

At any rate, the inside is what makes this LOVE card so cute. Stamp is also from the card kit.

How fun is this? you can use just about any sentiment on the inside but the paper scream birthday.

Here is one more card share with the typewriter.

Right now the only way to guarantee you get the Typewriter is to subscribe to the Spellbinders Monthly card kit. click the link below to subscribe:


A Few Card Kit Scrap Pages

Today I am sharing a bunch of my recent scrap pages I made with the Spellbinders card kit components. As I have said, I do love these kits! why not create pages with them too!

Spellbinders card kit scrapbook pages, Stamp with Jill

First up is the January card kit with my Mom and my daughter on our annual after Christmas shopping trip. I used the you’re my type 6×6 paper. The flowers and stems are the card kit dies. Even the sequins are from the kit too. The gold letters are from the December card kit. I added a paper doily, bubblegum and sage card stock and fashion gold accents. “Cherish” is from the Small doe of the month.

Second are some puppy shots from last summer. The black striped paper and the chipboard embellishments are January You’re My Type card kit components. This time I added matching card stock, washi tape, black thread and rhinestones.

The third is a winter page from last fall of Thomas. He loves the snow! Winter wishes card kit components for this page. The printed paper, gold letters, the tag, the tiny snowflake dies and the polar bear die were part of the card kit. This time I added the cardstock, the paper doily and die cut the snow flake with the Spellbinders ___die.

Finally, we have Gus’s gotcha day. The components of this page are a little more diverse. The emblishment (hearts, scallop, camera, sentiments) are from the January You’re my type kit. I added some GinaK and FSJ designer papers, card stock and enamel dots. Without a doubt, I love this layout and it is totally scrap-lifted from Paper Issues Scrap lift Sunday. You can check that out in the Paper Issues friends and fans Facebook group HERE.

It’s Spellbinders Card Kit time!

I absolutely stalk the mailbox for my Spellbinders Kit and Caboodle club box. It has become one of my favorite things to create with each month and the fact that the large die and small die of the month are included makes it a GREAT VALUE.

My box came last week. The only downside of this kit is that it takes a good 2 weeks to get to the east coast. Hoping that Spellbinders improves on that! In spite of the slower shipping, I LOVE everything in the kit and it is totally my style!

These are primarily from the You’re My Type card kit. At any rate, I will be working with the dies this week. Stay Tuned because they are so cute!

Coffee Cards with the Frappe Shake die

Coffee, coffee and more coffee! It’s Coffee Cards for todays post. I love the Frappe Shake Die from Honeybee stamps. I altered the cup just a bit and made these adorable regular coffee cup cards.

Getting more use out of a die that you invested in is always a PLUS. This die is no exception. You can see my original post that uses the Frappe Shake die in its original form here. Let’s get right to the video tutorial:

Now that you know how to make the coffee cards, lets take a closer look at the designs. My favorite is the Llama Latte! (the design is cased from Amy Tsuruta). This uses the Follow your heart 6×6 paper pack, No-Prob llama stamps and the Perfect Blend.
