MHKDesigns: Valentine Roses FREEBIE!

Hi, friends! 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 Valentine Roses!

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 roses in with Spectrum Noir markers. I chose to use color blocking to keep the image as simple as possible, and I love the way it turned out! I hope you do, too!

That's all I have for you today, friends!  Hop by tomorrow to check out our *NEW* challenge, and don't hesitate to grab the Valentine Roses from the MHKDesigns Etsy Shop!  Until tomorrow, HUGS and happy {digital} stamping!

MHKDesigns: Valentine Roses

Hi, all! I'm back with another card using the *NEWLY RELEASED* Valentine Roses digital stamp set from the MHKDesigns Etsy Shop! I used a variety of patterned paper packs to create this card, as well as this *NEW* set. Take a peek...

I created the focal panel for this card in photoshop using the Digital Paper Fill technique to "color" in the image from the Valentine Roses digital stamp set. The paper packs used are Rosy Posy, Get Well Flowers, and French Country.

I "rearranged" this simple sentiment from the Valentine Roses digital stamp set to fit inside of a circle, then recolored it using THIS technique. The sentiment circle was punched out and given dimension and I added a bit of glitter gel pen for a shiny shadow effect. A tiny enamel heart was added, as well.

Some shiny washi tape, twine, and a flower shaped button finished the focal panel off. I then matted it with black and added it to a craft card base. What do you think? I would love to hear 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!

Sending Love to Dawn: An MHKDesigns Blog Hop

Hello, dear friends! Today the MHKDesigners are banding together to tell one of our own dear gals, Dawn Bennett, that we are thinking of her during a difficult time in her life. Dawn recently lost her mother-in-law, and we wanted to let her know how much we care! We hope you take some time to leave Dawn some love, then hop with us to see the cards our team has created in her honor.

Here is the hop order~

Here is a sneak peek of what you will see along the way.

And here is my offering.

I used the *NEW* Sentimental Lily digital stamp set to create this card. I created my focal panel in Photoshop, then die cut it with a stitched rectangle die. 

I matted the focal panel onto navy card that was also die cut with a stitched rectangle die. I added some ribbon and enamel dots to add more texture, finish, and a bit of shine. I also added some glaze gel pen to the sentiment to create an embossed effect. I am happy with this card, and hope Dawn is, as well! What are your thoughts? Please do leave me a comment and let me know!

Dawn, please know that all of us at MHKDesigns is thinking of you and sending many prayers and well wishes! You and your family are close to our hearts during this difficult time. 

We will be randomly selecting 5 participants to receive the *NEW* Sentimental Lily digital stamp set from the MHKDesigns shop on the 15th of this month. Thank you for helping us show Dawn how much she and her family are loved and cared for! Until next time, hugs and happy {digital} stamping!

MHKDesigns: February Challenge + Valentine Roses Release!

Hello and happy February, everyone! I'm here today to share a card for this month's challenge at MHKDesigns. 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 that uses different colors, but the same effect. Here are my cards...

I made the image from the Valentine Roses digital stamp set white, gave it a drop shadow, and added background and texture in Photoshop.

I kept them one layer, but added some sequins and liquid pearls for added shine and texture. I love these, and hope you do, too! Please let me know 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!
