Blessed Lily Freebie Panel

Hi, friends! By now, I think you all know that I have decided to do something NEW for the NEW YEAR! Each month I will be providing you with a freebie panel using that month's release set from the MHKDesigns Etsy Shop! They will all be 8" x 10" so that they can be printed and used as home decor.

This month's featured set is Blessed Lily!

And here is this month's panel!

Now, some info about the freebie. There are just 3 rules about this, and future, freebie panels: 

1) You may not sell any cards you make using this panel. 
2) You may use this panel to enter MHKDesigns challenges ONCE.
3) You may ONLY alter the size of the panel as a whole. Cropping elements (images or sentiments) to use on their own is NOT allowed. 

I'm hoping the honor system will work with these freebies so that I can continue to share them with you all!

That's all I have for you today, friends!  Hop by tomorrow to check out our *NEW* challenge, and don't hesitate to grab the entire Valentine Roses from the MHKDesigns Etsy Shop!  Until tomorrow, HUGS and happy {digital} stamping!

MHKDesigner Inspiration: Shawna

Hello Everyone,

Today I am going to show you some inspiration for your MHKDesigns digital stamps. I am also going to feature our newest stamp set, Blessed Lily. Before I get to that, here is my card for today, enjoy!

The vintage Easter Lily and its background were largely created using digital software. The center of the lilies and some dark yellow accents were hand colored.

 The inspiration comes from our new release set:
Blessed Lily

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 the variety of digital papers we have to offer

I think the background is truly what makes this card shine!
I added lots of digital color wash and a woodgrain 'embossed' texture. 
A simple small bow adorns this Easter card. 
Since you are here, I encourage you to browse our blog and for more inventive ideas from the MHKDesigns talented design team. It is also our hope that you can play along with our monthly challenge. If not, sit back, and browse 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,

MHK Designer Inspiration - Rocky

     This month my MHK Designer Inspiration is another flat card, making it a standard postal charge in the UK, this month's release set is Blessed Lily so that's the image I have used.
     Using my photo package I have made a splodgey green background, then overlaid the image in white, along with the sentiment and a butterfly from Butterfly Wisdom.
     I added a little yellow around the stamens before adding another layered image, this time in a dark grey and slightly off the original to give a ghosting effect.
     Our very own Mynn has several YouTube videos you can watch to learn how to manipulate the images, this opens up many possibilities for your digital images.

Butterfly Wisdom

     Don't forget if you come and join in with our challenge you could win some of these gorgeous images, you don't have to use an MHK Designs image to enter either.

MHKDesigner Inspiration: Mynn

Hello, friends! I hope your March is going by swimmingly! I am getting ready to go on a much needed and anticipated Spring Break! ;) But I digress. Today I'm back to share another card using the *NEW* Blessed Lily digital stamp set from the MHKDesigns Etsy Shop. Take a peek...

I used Photoshop to create my focal panel. I used watercolor brushes to color in the image from the Blessed Lily set, but kept the flower itself white. I added some glitter to the flower for added shine.

I then layered a few shapes over the lily. I recolored part of the sentiment from the Blessed Lily set (want to know how--click HERE), and then added a fun marker scribble brush behind it for more depth. A few pearls add more texture and interest to this part of the card.

I then layered the focal panel with some fun glittery papers and added them on top of each other, using alternating angles. I love the way this turned out and hope you like it, too! I can't wait to hear your thoughts in the comments below!

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 head over to the MHKDesigns blog for more inspiration and join in our *NEW* challenge for your chance at winning some digital goodies from the MHKDesigns Etsy Shop! Until next time, HUGS and happy {digital} stamping, friends!

MHKDesigner Inspiration: Jessica

Hello friends!

I am really excited to share with you my March Designer Inspiration! This month we are showcasing a beautiful Easter set called "Blessed Lily"

Here is what I created:

I am still loving all things water color, so that is exactly what I did! I printed off the digital image and used my Close to My Heart & SNS Pearlescent Watercolors to color.  Hints of Nuvo Crystal Drops were added to accent the lily.  A little piece of purple lace peeks out from behind the image to give a feminine touch. 

See you soon!
