MHKDesigns: Christmas in July!


Hello, friends! This month on the MHKDesigns blog we are celebrating Christmas in July! It's my turn to post, and I've got a fun tag that uses digital stamps from the MHKDesigns Etsy shop. Take a peek...


This tag uses an image from the Deck the Halls digital stamp set. I colored the image with various Sakura gel pens, including a metallic green pen to outline the leaf veins and a red Glaze pen for the berries. I love the shine and texture it adds!


The sentiment, also from the Deck the Halls digital stamp set, was punched out and layered, then some liquid pearls were added around the scallop circle matting. Some ribbon, a button, and some twine decorate the top of the tag. So fun!


I decided to add some eyelets to the holes punched in this tag to keep it from tearing and I also rounded the corners of the bottom of the tag to mirror the scallop matting of the sentiment. I am super happy with how this turned out! What do you think? I'd love 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! Don't forget to head over to the MHKDesigns blog for more inspiration and join in our challenge for your chance at winning some digital goodies from the MHKDesigns Etsy Shop! Until next time, HUGS and happy {digital} stamping, friends!

Paper Sweeties July 2017 New Release Rewind!


Hi, friends! It's time for one last release post for the July 2017 release at Paper Sweeties, and we have some super sweet products to share with you this month! This is also my last post for this team, as I will be teaching full time for the first time this fall! Thank you to Debbie for this opportunity! :) Today I'm sharing a card that uses some old favorites, along with the *NEW* Scallop Rectangle Sweet Cut dies and Kindness Matters stamps. Take a peek...


I started by creating the framed scene using the *NEW* Scallop Rectangles Sweet Cut dies, the Sweeties Pets stamp set, and the Sweet Borders Sweet Cuts dies. I then added a few Pink Grapefruit sequins with liquid pearl centers for a pop of color! The sentiment is from the *NEW* Kindness Matters stamp set and was cut and framed using the Oval Scallop Frames Sweet Cuts dies.


Finishing touches include some ribbon and a doily. I think this card turned out super cute! What do you think? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below! :)



Thanks so much for stopping by today, friends!  I hope you hop over to the Paper Sweeties store and grab these goodies TODAY!  For more inspiration, make sure to check out what the other DT gals have made this month!

Paper Sweeties July 2017 New Release Sneak Peeks!


Hi, friends! It's time for another release at Paper Sweeties, and we have some super sweet products to share with you this month! Today I have a CAS one layer card to share. Take a peek...


I started by heat embossing the wreath image from the *NEW* Kindness Matters stamp set in gold. I then water colored the image with bold summery colors and added some gel pen to the centers of the flowers. The sentiments, also from the *NEW* Kindness Matters stamp set, was stamped into the middle of the wreath last. The *NEW* Kindness Matters stamp set also has matching Kindness Matters Sweet Cuts dies, too! SCORE!


Finishing touches include some fun polka dot ribbon and corner rounding at the bottom of the card. I think this is super sweet, and I hope you love it! Let me know your thoughts in the comments below! :)

MHKDesigns: July 2017 Challenge


Happy July, friends! It's time for a brand new challenge over at the MHKDesigns blog. This month's inspiration has some beautiful summery colors and a lot of nature! If you don't want to follow the inspiration, but you're going to use products from the MHKDesigns Etsy Shop, then it's ANYTHING GOES! But, seriously. This inspiration...


Isn't that so beautiful?! I was inspired by the flowers and bold colors. I went pretty simple, but I love the effect. Take a peek at my finished creation...


This card uses an image and sentiment from the Get Well Flowers digital stamp set. I recolored the rose image to make it yellow, then printed it out on a panel. The sentiment was printed on vellum. I chose to use bright green and red to mat my various panels before adding them to a kraft card base. Some faux stitching and glitter were added for texture and shine.



I added some glitter gel pen to the heart of the sentiment to make it match the red the sentiment was matted onto. I LOVE the way this looks and I hope you agree! I can't wait to read your thoughts in the comments below!


Thanks for stopping by, friends! Come join in the fun on the MHKDesigns blog for your chance to win some digi goodies from the MHKDesigns Etsy Shop! Until next time, HUGS and happy {digital} stamping, friends!
