MHKDesigner Inspiration: Shawna

Hello Friends,

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

I don't usually make tall cards but this design seemed to have
dictated the shape. Monochromatic'ish color palette allows it to be too busy.
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 really to enjoy the transparent acrylic at the top of the card.
You will see below behind the acrylic is iridescent DP. It adds a surprise bit of sparkle,
without it overwhelming the card.
I made this image extra large so you can see all the details and sparkle. 

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,

Supplies Used:
Christmas Candles digi stamp set

Designer Inspiration from NanaConnie

     I hope all of you in the U.S. had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day and I want to share a card which might inspire you to get a start on those Christmas cards which you still need to make.  Only five more weeks, can you believe it?

    For this one, I used the globe image from the "Rock My World" set and "Distressed Dots" dp from the "Glorious Gardens digital papers."  First I printed the paper, then printed the globe image directly on top of it.

     I used a die set from Die-Versions to cut the Santa and Sleigh twice (one brown, one eggshell white), then printed and matted the sentiment.  In finishing, I added only the red pearls and the red bow, wanting the focus to be on the image, not the embellishments.

      Don't forget that our final challenge for the year is playing right now and you can join in between now and December 15.  Hope to see you there.

MHK Designer Inspiration: Lorie

Happy Sunday all!  I'm on the blog today to share a card that I've made with the Wonderful Wreath set.  This is really one of my favorite sets of our October release simply because you can make a whimsical card or a super fancy card with it or in my case somewhere in between! Here is the set in it's entirety:
 And below here is the card I made with it: 
I have pulled out all of my Christmas/winter themed papers and decided to use this lovely, almost vintage colored paper.  Can you see Santa's face just peeking on the bottom of the largest circle?  :)  I did use a sketch (I used to think it was cheating to use a sketch but now a days I know I won't get a card made if I don't follow a sketch...anyone else like me?) for this card and added a couple of extra layers to it to give it somewhat of a luxurious feel.  I love using pearls or bling of some sot on my cards so I added some pearls here to play on the vintage feel. 

Make sure you check out all of the wonderful MHKDesigns sets HERE and join us in our challenge for the month HERE.  

Have a wonderful Sunday everyone!
