And here is my card~

Once again, I used Photoshop to create the focal panel for this card. The Light of the World image and sentiment were placed on top of paper from the Worn and Weathered digital paper pack. I added some sequins, faux stitching, and distressing to the edges of the matting to add more texture. Some Wink of Stella was added to the image, although it is difficult to see in this photo. I do love the way this turned out, though! What do you think? I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!

Designer Inspiration: Julie

Hello, Crafty friends!  Julie is with you today from Muddy Paws & Inky Fingers. I hope you are enjoying the New Releases this month!  Flowers are my favorite thing to color. I love to experiment with different color combinations.  

I'm featuring the New Release, 'Marvelous' Digital stamp set on today's card, along with one paper from the MHKDesigns Radiant Rainbow digital paper pack...


I colored the flower from the Marvelous stamp set with Copic markers, then used a Spellbinders die to cut it out.  The sentiment is also from the Marvelous Stamp Set.

And here is my card~

Once again, I used Photoshop to create the focal panel for this card. The Light of the World image was placed on top of some colored digital work and the sentiment (also from the Light of the World set) was given a yellow shadow to help it POP! A few gold sequins and some gold glitter on the yellow "light" in the bulb add more shine and texture. I love it! What do you think? I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!

MHK Designer Inspiration: Rocky


    Light of the World will be the next new set released by MHK Designs this month, so I thought I'd show you something you could make with it.
     Using the plain lamp from this set I made a circle of them with my photo package, printed them and then cut them out. They have been coloured with alcohol markers and stretched with a ball tool to resemble petals on a flower.
     Using a background from Damsel In Distress with foliage helps make this look even more flower like, along with layering two lamp circles on foam pads. The centre was die cut and coloured before removing the die to get a white, even border, this is also mounted on foam pads.
     The lamp butterfly is two large lamps and two small, all lamp bases are overlapped to get the body. With the addition of a flower stamen for antennae the butterfly, once coloured and trimmed, is complete, there are foam pads under its wings.
