MHK Designer Inspiration - Monica


Hi everyone it's Monica from Taylormadecards4u. I am here today with my Designer inspiration for MHK Designs. I am using one of my favorite sets called "The Write Stuff".


Many people may not know that not only am I am paper crafter, but I sew as well. My sewing machine has been put away for awhile, but recently I have been inspired to bring it out of the closet and start incorporating my sewing into my paper crafting.


I was at a local fabric shop recently as saw this cute fabric. I just couldn't resist it as I know I had the perfect digital images to create a note card set.  I think they are a pretty cute pair, what do you think?

Thanks for stopping by!

MHKDesigner Inspiration: Jessica

Hello friends!

It's Designer Jessica here to share my May Inspiration!

I chose to work with a Stamp Set called "Birds & Branches".  I just love this set!  It is so versatile and lovely.  I printed off the digital stamps and watercolored.  

Birds and Branches Digital Stamp Set

Here is what I created:




All I added from my stash were the buttons and some ribbon.  I used a bit of shimmer spray as well.  I hope you LOVE this card as much as I do!

Thanks for stopping by! 

Until next time,

MHKDesigner Inspiration: Julie

Hello, fellow crafters.  Julie is with you today. Today is a very big day for me!  Not only am I on this blog sharing with you, which is always a treat, but I'm also heading back to work after being away for 5 months.  I had 4 months of chemo and a month to recover.  Now, it's time to return to the people and the job that I love.  My heart is ready, and I hope my body is, too.

Langston Hughes said, "Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly."  It has taken much courage to keep my dreams alive some days this winter, and it has taken support from many incredible friends and family.  I thought of those people when I made this card, using MHKDesigns Birdcage Silhouettes.


Both the printed birdcage and the Langston Hughes quote are part of the Birdcage Silhouettes digital stamp set.  I found the birdcage charm in my stash, and just had to use it!  Designer papers on this card are also from MHKDesigns.  They are the Get Well Flowers digital papers

MHK Designer Inspiration - Rocky


     Hello and welcome to my very simple inspiration project for this month. A tag to go with a handcrafted gift that also has a sea theme.
     I used the sand dollar to make a background in my photo package. The contrast has been changed on some of them to get them near white, with the others having the opacity changed to get shades of grey. The main image was done last so it sits over all the others but it is at 75% opacity so the greeting stands out in black.
    The whole background was then placed over a sheet of paper from Country Farm to get the sandy colour. Once the printed paper was stuck on the tag it was then trimmed and edged with blue ink, with the addition of  two colours of string the tag was complete.
    Don't forget to pop over to the current challenge for a chance to win some gorgeous MHK Designs goodies or visit our Etsy shop to browse the huge collection of digital delights.

Happy Crafting.

MHKDesigner Inspiration: Judy



Hello everyone!

It's Judy here sharing a little inspiration with you!

I created a set of tags using one of the newer sets




I cut some tag shapes out of cream colored card stock
and covered with a DP  from the Paper Studio.

 I had some paint chip samples laying around
and repurposed them on the tags as the background
to the images that were colored with pencils and fussy cut.
The sentiments are from



I added some mesh, buttons and ribbon.



It's so easy to create great projects with these products.
