MHKDesigner Inspiration: Shawna Standish

Hello MHKDesign Fans,

For today I have an inspiration card using your MHKDesigns digital stamps. Here is my card for today, enjoy.

A shaker card seemed to add an extra Christmas
touch to our adorable rocking horse.
Lightly sponged the edges gray to create a more subtle feel to the card.
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 variety of digital papers we have to offer

I used three sets from MHKDesigns stamp sets. These stamps are so versatile
and fun to play with. You can resize and flip the image which is something that is
nearly impossible to get this resolution when flipping an image with rubber/polymer stamps.
Digital stamps- no problem!

 Above Left: Detail showing the luster and shininess of the sequins. Right: Another detail showing the beautiful iridescent sparkle and shine.  

I will encourage you to stop by the MHKDesigns blog to see more inventive ideas from our design team, and then play along with our monthly challenge, or just enjoy 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,

Stamp Sets Used:
Rock My World Digital Stamp Set  Christmas Candles Digital Stamp Set  Deck the Halls Digital Stamp Set
Left/Top:Rock My World; Middle:Christmas Candles; Right/Bottom:Deck the Halls

MHKDesigner Inspiration: Lorie Ames

Hello and Happy Saturday all!  This is Lorie stopping in with a card for that upcoming rather cool season here in the Pacific Northwest called...winter, ugh, I know cold and snow.  Being that I grew up in Wisconsin the weather here isn't really all that bad.  (Trying to put a positive spin on it can ya tell? ;) )

I know you aren't here to read about the weather though so lets get to the cuteness shall we?

Eek, that Snow Baby is adorable isn't it?  As with all of her designs this vintage look is so on point with this Snow Babies set and the sentiments wonderful!  No special techniques on this card other than some fun with paperclips, bling, and some enamel dots.

Soooo...have you been to check out our challenge for the month yet?  NO?  What?  Okay, click HERE and check it to play along!  Well, that is it for me!  Go...have a wonderful weekend and I'll see you again later!

MHKD Designer Inspiration : SathyaSankaran

Hi Crafty Friends!

This is Designer SathyaSankaran for the Monthly Inspiration.

This time, played with one of my fave digiset, "Blossoming "

  • Printed the digi images in the drawing sheet and colored it with Faber castell bicolor pencils.
  • Fussy cut them and added with few MFT florish diecuts, which are colored using Zig clean color brush pens.

  • Wish to keep the sentiment as Focal element and so, diecut it with Spellbinder frame die and added the fussy cut florals around it.
  • These are mounted on to the base A2 white cardstock using foam adhesives.

Hope you like this simple card.
