Faux Quilted Background Tutorial


Hi friends! I hope your summer/winter (depending on the hemisphere!) has been great so far! I am really exited to share that starting this month, I will be sharing tutorials here on the blog each month on how to create one-layer digital cards with products from the MHKDesigns Etsy Shop that look like the have been cut and layered! I feel like a lot of the cards I make are never mailed because they get bulky, so this is a way I can ensure that some of them at least will make it out of my house! ;)  Take a peek at the first card I have to share with you in this series...


Isn't it pretty??? I love the way the papers are layered and look like a faux quilt! That's why I'm calling this digital technique "Digital Faux Quilted Background". The papers I used for this technique are from the Sunflower Sampler digital paper pack. The image (from the Stitched Sunflower digital stamp set) was not colored digitally, though. I colored it in with Spectrum Noir markers after it was printed. The burlap ribbon was also added for some added texture!


If you'd like to see a tutorial on how to create this technique, head on over to check out the video on the MHKDesigns YouTube channel!! The card I make for the tutorial is different colors and looks like this once it is colored and has ribbon added...


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 hop back and join in our *NEW* challenge tomorrow for your chance at winning some digital goodies from the MHKDesigns Etsy Shop! Until next time, HUGS and happy {digital} stamping, friends!

MHKDesigner Inspirations ~ Asmah

Hello friends! Asmah is here and I am back again with my newest June designer creation for MHKDesigns which I hope might inspire you to create using digi stamp.

I made a shabby tag combined with minimal texture paste and watercolors in the background.
I love all the chairs available in this digi stamp set namely Sit A Bit which you can get here at MHKDesigns.
Don't you wish you own all those chairs in your home? They look so antique and artistic.
I hope you like my tag this time. I hope to see your creation using the images above in our current challenge that is ending soon at the end of this month.

Until I see you again next month.
Have a blissful day.

Hugs and smiles,

And here is my card~

I went back to Photoshop for this focal panel and went with a feminine color combo. I made the image a medium gray so that the black sentiment would really POP! I added a few silver embellishments and then added my focal panel to the card base. I used paper from the Damsel in Distress paper pack for more texture and an extra bit of vintage vibe. I love the way this card turned out! What do you think?! I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments below! :)

MHKDesigner Inspiration: Tasha

Hi everyone, Tasha here with my June designer project for MHKDesigns digital stamps and papers. For my project, I created a card with the beautiful Flutter & Fly digital stamp set; one of my favorite sets!



To create this vintage card, I printed the frame and two bird images in black and colored them with markers in pale tones. I also used distress ink to age the white paper; the all-white background was too bright, but the lightly faded distressed color looks awesome!



The sentiment was printed inside of the lovely frame and I chose a dark purple font color to allow it to really stand out.  To embellish, I used gold glitter and 4 pearls. The glitter adds a soft sparkle and the pearls add to the vintage feel.



Lastly, a metallic gold striped pattern paper was layered on a dark red square card base.The gold shines in the light and the colors work great with the distressed paper. I love this card and this digital stamp set!

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed the card for today!

Have a wonderful day!

June Release: Season's Greetings


Hello, friends!  Welcome to the June 2017 Release for the MHKDesigns Etsy Shop!  I have 5 fabulous  new sets to share this month and they cover MANY occasions!  I just know you will LOVE all the creations that my team and I have to share, as well!  Today's set is called...


And here is my card set~

When I go to make Christmas cards, I usually go overboard and then find it difficult to mail them! Too many embellishments. So, I decided to keep these cards SUPER CAS and see what the result would be. I know it's not too clear from the photo, but the only embellishment on these is some Stickles in Diamond Dust in strategic areas all over each image. I think the final product is the perfect mail-able, and still festive, holiday card! What do you think?! I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments below! :)

And now, let's talk about how to get this new set OR the entire release for FREE!  Here's what you'll need to do...
  1. Comment here on the MHKDesigns blog.
