MHKDesign Inspiration: Shawna

Hello Crafty Friends,

For today I'm sharing a very simple, easy-to-make card using multiple images from the same set.  This is one of the first sets to hit the MHKDesigns store. It is an 'oldie' but a goodie called Stencil in Roses! This set is a 'must have' for any digital collection. Here is my card for today, enjoy.


This set comes with the flowers already colored.
This makes the design fast, easy, and very effective.
A calming and wonderful sentiment to
encourage or comfort.


The MHKDesigns stamp sets are so amazingly interchangeable. Each set can work independently or with other sets without any conflict. I have used these digital elements to create a clean and simple card.

The images was imported using photo editing software. I took the colored images and layered them around till I was satisfied with the layout. In a new file I imported the sentiment and added the lines you see. After the layout and sentiment banner were done I simply printed them out, popped up the sentiment banner for a bit of dimension, scored and folded the card. Easy-peasy!

There is a lot more to discover at MHKDesigns Etsy Shop! Stop on over and see what we have to offer. You will be inspired as our Design Team was created such beautiful cards for each set. Keep stopping by to see more inspiration. Until then take care.

All the best,

MHKD Designer Inspiration: SathyaSankaran

Hi Friends!!

This is Sathya here today with Monthly Inspiration using Butterfly elements and Butterfly Wisdom Digi set. If you are following my Blog, then you would know how much i love butterfly digi sets.




Love to highlight the sentiment this time with my favorite Butterflies.

Sponged the sentiment banner with Mustard seed, Wildhoney Distress inks. Butterfly from Butterfly wisdom is colored using Fabercastell bicolor pencils and fussy cut. These are mounted on a ivory base cardstock, which is sponged at one of the edge with Rusty hinge distress ink.


A flower from Open Bloom set is used here, which is colored, fussy cut, mounted near the sentiment.


This finishes off the card.

MHK Designer Inspiration - NanaConnie

     In keeping with all the fantastic Christmas sets Mynn released this month, I've done a Christmas card using one of her older sets, "Christmas Silhouettes."  This happens to be the 'Wise Men' image from that set and the sentiment I chose is from the "Holiday Deer" set (one of my favorites for masculine cards year round.)


     It's a very simple design, really.  I printed out the silhouette (I love that these are done in reverse!), then cut and matted it.  I did the same with the sentiment.  I layered each of those onto sparkle CS and added a strip of satin ribbon and a bit of holly as an embellishment.

     Here are photos of the complete sets I used.

     Don't forget to play along in our challenge which runs until August 20.
