MHKDesigner Inspiration: Julie

Fall greetings, fellow crafters, and happy Thanksgiving!  It's Julie with you today from Muddy Paws & Inky Fingers.  Thanksgiving, here in the US, isn't very far away, and I was thinking about the many things I have to be thankful for as I made this card.  A year ago tomorrow, I started chemo treatments.  Now, I am full remission.  Give thanks!!!!

I used the sentiment from the Funky Fall Foliage digital stamp set and made it the focal point of my card.  Papers on this card, also from MHKDesigns, are part of the Autumn Accents Digital Paper Pack.

MHKDesigner Inspiration: Shawna

Hello Everyone,

Today I am going to show you some inspiration for your MHKDesigns digital stamps. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

The magic of layer made this card possible. I took my MHKDesigns Christmas Silhouettes stamp set and copied the image into another layer. I then made it white and offset it to have the white show through.
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

The sentiment and image play off each other nicely.
This is a large 8.25x4 card is perfect for a letter size envelope. 
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 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

  The digi papers are very good for making boxes, with so many to choose from it could be for any occasion. As it's fast approaching the festive season I have made a small gift box, a perfect size for gifting a few handmade treats.
      I printed the paper from Christmas Past on to thin card and then die cut the box, it measures 2.5 x 2.5 x 3 inches so it's a rather useful size.
     With just a little double sided tape the box is complete, it has a slot fastening star on top to go with the star paper. All that was needed to finish off was a tag which has a sentiment from Candy Canes and Crackers printed on it, a bit of red edging with ink to make it pop and a big foam pad behind it.
     I do hope you enjoy using MHK Designs images and papers for your projects, don't forget to join our challenge to show us what you've made.

MHKDesigner Inspiration: Judy

Good morning everyone!
Today is my day to share some inspiration!

With the holidays quickly approaching 
I decided to make a set of holiday cards.

I used "Deck the Halls" for the tree image
and the sentiment is from "Santa's Sleigh".

I colored the image with metallic pencils, gel pens and stickles.
The sentiment was cut with a label die.

Check out these sets and all the others available at
and get started on your holiday cards today!

Witching You a Happy Halloween!

Hello, all! Happy Halloween! It's my first Halloween as a teacher, so I'm not quite sure what will happen, but my goal is to keep it as calm as possible. I'll let you know how that goes. ;) Anyway, today's post is all about Halloween and a digital print I made using digis from the MHKDesigns Etsy Shop!  Take a peek...

This print measures 8" x 10". I used Photoshop to create my gradient background, added some texture with a variety of brushes and styles, then added my sentiment and image, both from the Flight By Night digital stamp set. I just LOVE how versatile digital products are and how quick it is to create something fun and fabulous that you can print and use! As a fun and festive gift for you today, click HERE to download a non-watermarked version of this print for PERSONAL USE for a limited time!

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 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!
