MHKDesigner Inspiration: Tasha


Hi everyone, Tasha here with my April designer project for MHKDesigns digital stamps and papers. For my project, I created a Clean & Simple card using the Get Well Flowers digital stamp set.


To create this card, I printed one of the floral images out in purple and layered clear glitter over it. I colored the petals with light pink and purple markers to add more detail. 
Layers of metallic purple and purple glitter paper were used to coordinate with the flower color and add shimmer. I really enjoyed working with various shades of one color!



The sentiment selected was "Get Well Soon" and it was printed in a dark purple font color. I cut the ends to create a banner and layered it across the printed image with foam tape.




Lastly, I added two sizes of pearl embellishments and created a base from textured pastel purple paper to complete the design.


I hope you enjoyed this card and be sure to check out the MHKDesigns Blog for more inspiration!

MHKDesigner Inspiration - Monica

Hi everyone and welcome to my Designer inspiration for the month of April.

Today I am sharing with you an image from one of the Masculine sections over at MHKDesigns called Dear Dad. There are several great images and sentiments in this set that work great for Father's Day.


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



I wanted to go with a Retro grunge feel to this card. After I colored in the images, I used a stitch die cut to frame my image. I then stamped the a few grungy dots on various parts of the card.

I adhered the framed image to some polka dot paper and added some washi tape. I Outlined the washi tape using a distress crayon - Black Soot.

Thanks for stopping by!

MHKDesigner Inspiration - Julie

Hello, everyone!  Is this really almost the middle of April?  I hope you are having springtime weather where you live!  This is Julie with you today from Muddy Paws & Inky Fingers.  If you've been following my cancer journey with me, I had a PET scan last week, and it showed that I'm in complete remission!  Thank you for all your prayers and kind thoughts!  Tomorrow, I have a bone marrow biopsy.  It is (hopefully) the last test needed to show I'm in remission.  We won't know whether the cancer is gone from my bone marrow & spinal fluid without this test.  Your prayers are appreciated for this one, too!

There are many new releases this month in the MHKDesigns Etsy Store.  I'm featuring one today that has a masculine feel.  It's perfect for Father's Day or masculine birthdays.  Here's a tag I made featuring "Dear Dad".
