March Freebie!


Hello, all! It's time for the March freebie panel, and this panel features a favorite set of mine--Realistic Roses!  I decided to color the sentiment purple so that you could use this panel to create something for April's challenge, so make sure to join us! Take a peek at the panel...


I decided to stick with the purple theme and watercolor my roses using ink and gel pen. I added some faux stitching, rhinestones, and striped ribbon as my only embellishments. Here's the completed card...


Now, some info about the freebie. The print size of this panel is 3.75" x 5". 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 the March 2017 MHKDesigns challenge only.  Entries in future challenges using this panel will be deleted. 3) You may NOT alter the panel in any way, including recoloring or cropping digitally.  This includes cropping the panel so that you may use the sentiment on other projects.  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 Realistic Roses set from the MHKDesigns Etsy Shop!  Until tomorrow, HUGS and happy {digital} stamping!

I am back again to share my inspirational card made for MHKDesigns using her fabulous digital stamps.
Here is my clean and simple black and white card.
The pretty blooms, Get Well Flowers were printed and neatly adhered on the card.
The sentiment on the top left is from Lovely Ladies digital stamp set.
Don't they look gorgeous?
And here's a little close up.
I sure hope you will find that less is more can be very eye catching too.
Have fun creating and see you again soon.

MHKDesigner Inspiration: Tasha

Hi everyone, Tasha here with my March designer project for MHKDesigns digital stamps and papers. This month I wanted to create a card using the beautiful Realistic Roses Digital Stamp Set; the rose images are so pretty!



The digital stamp design was printed on white card stock and I used distress ink create a more vintage look. The roses were colored with markers and accented with glitter and white gel pen. The pink is perfect for a spring card!



The sentiment was printed in a dark pink font color to coordinate with the roses. I love this quote and wanted it to pop off the page, but not over-power the roses; I think it's a great balance!





To complete the card, I created pink ribbon corners and used textured green and navy layers. I adore pink and green color combinations, so lovely!




I hope you enjoyed this project and are inspired to create with Realistic Roses Digital Stamp Set!

MHK Designer Inspiration - Monica

Hi everyone and welcome to my Designer inspiration for MHKDesigns.

Today I am sharing with you an image from one of the Easter sets over at MHKDesigns called Bunny Love.



It is available over at the MHKDesigns Etsy shop along with many other wonderful sets.



This card was so simple to make and I was able to play with some of my new "magicals" and some resist paper to create the background. Magicals are a powder substance that when sprayed with water create fun vibrant colors. 

I printed my sentiment onto some vellum paper so that the color would still show through. I love the way this turned out. The simplicity of the white image really goes well with the colorful background. 


Thanks for stopping by!

MHKDesigner Inspiration - Shawna

Hello Friends,

For today I have an inspiration card using your MHKDesigns digital stamps and papers. MHKDesigns makes it easy to create fantastic, elegant cards. Case in point, here is my card for today, enjoy!

This one card packed a punch.
I love all the visual texture of the flowers and chocolate stenciling!
______________________________
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
______________________________

This card seems to be an unconventional Easter card.
Yes, but I think it is a modern and elegant design.
The halos around the flowers was done using photo editing software
The white around the stenciling was (obviously) done by hand.
They have the same effect but using different mediums to create it.
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,


Supplies Used:

MHK Designer Inspiration - Rocky


     With Easter approaching here's a little project for table decorations using images from Tweet Tweet and papers from Egg-cellent Easter.
     The little bird house is cut from the patterned paper, with just a little ink added to the roof to darken it slightly. The birds are printed out twice for each design, with one image flipped to face the other way so they can be stuck together once cut out.
     I have chosen to 'tangle' the birds but this would be an ideal make for children as they could colour them in themselves. The only part that is not stuck together is the feet so they can stand up freely, they could just as easily be hung by a thread from a decorative tree branch arrangement.

Egg-cellent Easter
 


    We have many more gorgeous designs available in the Etsy shop so please pop over and have a look.

    Our monthly challenge can be found here, you'll find lots of inspiration and an opportunity to win some stamps so this is well worth a look.
