MHK Designer Inspiration - Rocky


     Welcome to my designer inspiration for April at MHK Designs, this card was made using the new set Caring Crocus.
     The image was changed to green before being printed on to white card. The leaves and body of the flower have been coloured with pencils, then the flower head outline has been foiled. Using a 2in1 glue pen I drew around the flowers petals and then used a small sheet of foil to give it a purple shine.
     A little ink around the edge of the image panel helps bring it into the purple mat layer before being mounted on a white card blank.
Caring Crocus
       I used to think digital images where just 'print and colour' so not very useful, oh how wrong I was!  They can be sized to fit your needs, turned around, you can alter their colour, and all that before you print. Once printed the colouring can be done with almost anything in your stash, even glittered or foiled.
    So I would like to say a big THANK YOU to MHK Designs for opening my eyes to the world of digital images.

Designer Inspiration: Julie

Greetings, crafty friends.  It's Julie with you today.  I'm totally in love with this month's release, Caring Crocus.

My favorite color of Crocus are violet, so that's what I used to create today's card:


The sentiment is part of the Caring Crocus digital stamp set. Papers used on this card are from the Rosy Posy Digital Paper Pack.

MHKDesigner Inspiration: Mynn


Hello, friends! I hope your April is going by beautifully! Today I'm back to share another card using the *NEW* Caring Crocus digital stamp set from the MHKDesigns Etsy Shop. Take a peek...


I used Photoshop to create my focal panel. I used dry brush brushes to color in the image from the Caring Crocus set, making the flower a sunny yellow. I then added a fun butterfly embellishment to add a bit more spring to the card.


I then added the sentiment from the Caring Crocus set by adding a black background and recoloring the words white. I like doing this so the sentiment POPS! A few glittery embellishments frame the sentiment in a triangle formation.


Finally, I added black matting with a punched border and more blue pearly embellishment. I wanted a bit of blue to mimic the spring sky! I think this card definitely screams spring, and I hope you agree! Tell me 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: Judy

Happy Friday!
It's Judy here with my turn to share a little inspiration
using this month's New Release Set from





I used a classic black and white color scheme
for my card and love the way it turned out.

I started with a 6.5 x 5 inch white card base.
I chose 2 coordinating  designer papers.
One of the papers was cut to 6 x 4.5 inches
and matted with a 6.25 x 4.75 inch piece of black card stock.
The other designer paper was cut to a smaller rectangular shape and matted.
The image was printed and die cut in a circle shape.
I adhered a black paper doily to the card and added the die cut image.
I printed one of the sentiments from the set and die cut.
This die cut was popped with foam tape.
A black satin ribbon was added to complete.


I hope I've provided you just a little bit of inspiration today!

chances to win MHKDesigns products!

MHKDesigner Inspiration: Jessica

Hello friends!


It's Designer Jess here today to share my April  MHKDesigns Designer Inspiration card! I used the new release stamp set called "Caring Crocus" to create this card.

Here is the Handmade Card that I created:




This is another sweet little notecard size (about 4x4.5"). I printed off the digi and watercolored with Nuvo Aqua Flow Pens. A few Crystal Drops were added as embellishment and a bit of twine around the bottom.  I can't wait to give this to someone who needs a little pick me up!

I hope you love this card as much as I do!  


Thanks for stopping by!  Feel free to leave a comment - I love to hear feedback :)
See you next time!
