MHK Designer Inspiration- Shawna

Hello MHK Friends,

I'm here to show you an inspiration card using your MHKDesigns digital stamps and papers. Shabby Chic has never been my style but I was so inspired by my teammate, Asmah Zainal Abidin work, that I had to give it a try. Here is my card for today, enjoy.

If you haven't checked out Asmah's blog yet, I highly suggest
it! She is a very talented and inspiring artist. She is sure to amaze.
For this card, I used a sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 folded the long length of the paper.
This card seems larger because it is large.
It can, however, fit perfectly in a business size envelope.
MHKDesigns vintage images work so well with each other.
I invite you to check out our Etsy store and see for yourself
the versatility of stamp sets and the variety of digital papers we have to offer.

Using the new Hoppy Easter digital stamp set!


My starting point was the clock patterned paper.
From there I used muted colors of peach and grays to round out the design.

Below/Left: The sentiment seems appropriate. It seems to be a happy card with the hope of Spring right around the corner.  Bottom/Right: You may have noticed the die cut roman numeral clock by the bunny. That was die cut and spritzed with white acrylic paint and water. I also added some faded text around the edges and also decided to distress them for a bit of texture.

Since you are here, I encourage you to browse our blog and see more inventive ideas from our design team. It is our hope that you can play along with our monthly challenge. If not, just enjoy a bit of eye candy.

There is also 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,
