Eureka Stamps Challenge #108

Happy Monday and welcome to the Eureka Stamps weekly challenge.

This week's challenge, #108, is "Add Some Bling".  Here's the card I created for this week's reveal.

I decided to make a Christmas card this week.  What better way to add bling?  I always think of bling when I think of Christmas.  The digi stamp is from QKR and you can find it in the store here.

I used patterned paper from my brand new Carta Bella Christmas Time collection.  The "bling" is on the gold sparkly ribbon, plus I added a matching rhinestone to the corners.

Here's a different view of the card.

Here's a close-up of my blingy bow.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week.

Eureka Stamps Challenge #107

It's Monday and time for a new challenge at the Eureka Stamps blog.

This week's challenge, #107, is "Vintage or Distressed".  Here's the card I created for this week's reveal.

I used a QKR image this week ~ and you can find it right here.

I printed the digi stamp out on tan cardstock so it would have more of a vintage feel.  I used lots of distress ink on the outside edges of the image.  I tucked the little "time to remember" index card underneath the stamp and added the two pocket watches.  I tied bows to the top of the watches with twine.

Here's a close-up of the digital stamp.

I love this paper by Echo Park because it already had the distressing on it.  

Here's a close-up of the pocket watch at the bottom of the card.

Here's a close-up of the smaller pocket watch and the little index card.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week.
