MHKDesigner Inspiration: Mynn

Hello, friends! I hope your March is going by swimmingly! I am getting ready to go on a much needed and anticipated Spring Break! ;) But I digress. Today I'm back to share another card using the *NEW* Blessed Lily digital stamp set from the MHKDesigns Etsy Shop. Take a peek...

I used Photoshop to create my focal panel. I used watercolor brushes to color in the image from the Blessed Lily set, but kept the flower itself white. I added some glitter to the flower for added shine.

I then layered a few shapes over the lily. I recolored part of the sentiment from the Blessed Lily set (want to know how--click HERE), and then added a fun marker scribble brush behind it for more depth. A few pearls add more texture and interest to this part of the card.

I then layered the focal panel with some fun glittery papers and added them on top of each other, using alternating angles. I love the way this turned out and hope you like it, too! I can't wait to hear your thoughts in the comments below!

That's all I have for you today, friends! Thank you so much for stopping by! I always love to hear from you, so please do let me know your thoughts in the comments below! Don't forget to head over to the MHKDesigns blog for more inspiration and join in our *NEW* challenge for your chance at winning some digital goodies from the MHKDesigns Etsy Shop! Until next time, HUGS and happy {digital} stamping, friends!

MHKDesigner Inspiration: Jessica

Hello friends!

I am really excited to share with you my March Designer Inspiration! This month we are showcasing a beautiful Easter set called "Blessed Lily"

Here is what I created:

I am still loving all things water color, so that is exactly what I did! I printed off the digital image and used my Close to My Heart & SNS Pearlescent Watercolors to color.  Hints of Nuvo Crystal Drops were added to accent the lily.  A little piece of purple lace peeks out from behind the image to give a feminine touch. 

See you soon!

Hi everyone,

I'm honored to be sharing my latest New Release card for MHKDesigns, both here and over on my blog.  You can purchase this month's new release, Blessed Lily, at the MHKDesigns Etsy store

And here's my card...

I colored the image with alcohol markers, before cutting it and the frame with one of my favorite dies (details on my blog). 

I'll be back soon on my own blog with another creation, and next month on MHKDesigns, so I hope you'll join me then.  In the meantime, our current challenge can be found here, and don't forget to pop back to see what my amazing teamies have for you here.

February Freebie Panel

Hi, friends! I have decided to do something NEW for the NEW YEAR! Each month I will be providing you with a freebie panel using that month's release set from the MHKDesigns Etsy Shop! They will all be 8" x 10" so that they can be printed and used as home decor.

This month's featured set is Valentine Roses!

And here is this month's panel!

Now, some info about the freebie. There are just 3 rules about this, and future, freebie panels: 

1) You may not sell any cards you make using this panel. 
2) You may use this panel to enter MHKDesigns challenges ONCE.
3) You may ONLY alter the size of the panel as a whole. Cropping elements (images or sentiments) to use on their own is NOT allowed. 

I'm hoping the honor system will work with these freebies so that I can continue to share them with you all!

That's all I have for you today, friends!  Hop by tomorrow to check out our *NEW* challenge, and don't hesitate to grab the entire Valentine Roses from the MHKDesigns Etsy Shop!  Until tomorrow, HUGS and happy {digital} stamping!

MHKDesigner Inspiration: Shawna

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to another post of inspiration using the MHKDesigns release set for this month, Valentine Roses! Here is my card for today, enjoy!

Some of you may know my style by now. I like to enlarge images and take pieces from it to create a card. This design is no exception. Enlarging the rose gives the image a whole new look.

The inspiration comes from our new release set:
Valentine Roses
MHKDesigns vintage images work so well with each other._
I invite you to check out her Etsy store and see for yourself
the versatility of stamp sets and the variety of digital papers we have to offer

I do enjoy the white space with minimal distractions.
The sentiment banner and the single heart embellishment seems to be just enough to enhance the design.
 The watercolor effect is all digital.
I used the main stem of the rose as a literal divider then reversed the background on either side.
Since you are here, I encourage you to browse our blog and for more inventive ideas from the MHKDesigns talented design team. It is also our hope that you can play along with our monthly challenge. If not, sit back, and browse a bit of eye candy.

There is a lot more to discover at MHKDesigns Etsy Shop! Stop on over and see what we have to offer. It is certain to spark the imagination. So, thank you for stopping by and hope to see you soon. Take care and happy crafting.

All the best,
