Christmas in July

Hello Readers,

For today we are celebrating Christmas in July at MHKDesigns! I will be featuring a partial release consisting of two stamp sets. Hop on over to the other DT's blogs and see what sets they have decided to feature. So without further ado, here is my card for today, enjoy!

I know I called the above focal point 'an image' but in fact
they are many images from two stamp sets. Candy canes and sentiment came from the Candy Canes and Crackers stamp set and the stocking came from the Deck the Halls set. Combining them creates a very pretty and festive card. 

Keeping it simple with MHKDesigns striped printable paper from the Stars & Stripes paper pack.
The image and sentiment look so nice against the white backdrop.

Trimming the tree card.. Very simple and so pretty. Printed the layout then colored the sentiment, tree, and candy canes. Also did some highlighting with colored pencils. I left a thin white border around the card to give it a bit more air to the card.

There is a lot more to discover at MHKDesigns Etsy Shop! I invite you to stop on over and see what we have to offer. I promise, you will not be disappointed.

Thank you so much for stopping by TheGrandStampede. I hope you will be able to join us this month at MHKDesigns challenge blog. If you don't yet have MHKDesigns product, not to worry, no purchase necessary to enter. See you there!

All the best,

Clever how you've put all the images together on the first card and the background sets them all of beautifully. Love the air around the second card x

Hello Shawna, my friend.
What did you do with these new stamps are brilliant. I love the first card for a wonderful combination of stripes socks and background. It's a real genius! It looks like a winner. The second card I love the fact that do not you put on the whole Christmas tree, a beautiful panel card you sharing the between sentiment and the tree. Yes, you once again revealed his genius!
Firmly hug,
and as usual I do not know if you understand something of my English writing ;-)

Love the angled panel on the first card and the fun stocking, Shawna!!! The yellow shadowing around the stocking is really effective and looks great!!! Such a lovely card!!! The tree on the second card is beautiful and how you've used only half of the image is great!!!! Your colouring is just wonderful and the card is so beautiful!!!! You do such great work with Mynn's stampsets, my friend!!!
Have a great day!!!
