MHKDesigns: Caring Crocus


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!

MHKDesigns: April Challenge + Caring Crocus Release


Hello and happy April, everyone! I'm here today to share a card for this month's challenge at MHKDesigns. As you know, I've revamped how my Etsy shop will be running this year, so our challenge posts will ALSO include a monthly release set! This month's set is called...



And here is our challenge inspiration:

This month's card's focal panel (that was interesting to type!) was created in Photoshop. Here is the completed card: 


I made the image from the Caring Crocus set white and did some watercolor brushing behind. I was inspired by the colors in this month's photo inspiration!


I chose to use the scripture from the Caring Crocus set as my sentiment. I think this is a wonderful reminder of God's love and mercy to us all!


Some yellow gingham ribbon, silver elastic cording, and a purple flower shaped button finished off this card. I matted the panel with black before adding it to the card front. I do love this card and hope you do, too! I can't wait to hear your thoughts in the comments below!

MHKDesigns: Blessed Lily Freebie!


Hi, friends! By now, I think you all know that I have decided to do something NEW for the NEW YEAR! Each month I will be providing you with a freebie panel using that month's release set from the MHKDesigns Etsy Shop! They will all be 8" x 10" so that they can be printed and used as home decor.

This month's featured set is Blessed Lily!
To grab the FREEBIE panel, head over to 

Here's what I did with the freebie.

I printed the freebie onto thick white cardstock. I then colored the image in with Spectrum Noir markers.


I even added a bit of Spectrum Noir to the sentiment to add more depth! I love the way the yellow helps the other colors POP!


I cannot wait to frame this panel and display it in my home for Easter! I hope you like it, too! I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts in the comments below!

MHKDesigns: Blessed Lily


Hello, friends! I hope your March is going by swimmingly! I am getting ready to go on a much needed and anticipated Spring Break! ;) But I digress. Today I'm back to share another card using the *NEW* Blessed Lily digital stamp set from the MHKDesigns Etsy Shop. Take a peek...


I used Photoshop to create my focal panel. I used watercolor brushes to color in the image from the Blessed Lily set, but kept the flower itself white. I added some glitter to the flower for added shine.


I then layered a few shapes over the lily. I recolored part of the sentiment from the Blessed Lily set (want to know how--click HERE), and then added a fun marker scribble brush behind it for more depth. A few pearls add more texture and interest to this part of the card.


I then layered the focal panel with some fun glittery papers and added them on top of each other, using alternating angles. I love the way this turned out and hope you like it, too! I can't wait to hear 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!

MHKDesigns: March Challenge + Blessed Lily Release


Hello and happy March, everyone! I'm here today to share a card for this month's challenge at MHKDesigns. As you know, I've revamped how my Etsy shop will be running this year, so our challenge posts will ALSO include a monthly release set! This month's set is called...


And here is our challenge inspiration:

I decided to play around with Photoshop and create a two card set--one layered card, the other a one-layer card. Here are my cards...


Both of these cards use the same Photoshop-created panel and the *NEW* Blessed Lily digital stamp set. One was printed, then layered and gussied up...


And the other was kept one-layer with simple rounded corners added.


The layered card had some faux stitching added as a border. I love that using digital images make it super simple to create cards using the same product in a variety of ways! The possibilities are endless! What do you think? I would love to hear in the comments below! :)
