To make it easier to read about our trip to Ireland, I have made a page that is just for that. There is a tab above for Ireland Trip 2014 or click on the Home tab to read my other posts.

Eureka! Stamps masculine/grunge challenge

Hello crafty friends!
It's time for another Eureka! Stamps Challenge
This weeks theme is 
"Masculine or Grunge"
I decided to make 2 projects for you with this theme.
For my first project I made a card using
"Celtic Background" (#31601) from Eureka! Stamps
 and
"Happy Birthday" (#36314) from Biblical Impressions
a sister company of Eureka! Stamps.
I stamped Celtic Background onto white card stock with VersaMark ink
 and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.
I then applied Distress Ink to the entire surface.
The embossing resists the ink leaving a beautiful background.
The Happy Birthday was stamped onto white card stock,
then was cut to size and inked with Distress Inks also.

For my 2nd project, I decided to go outside the box for me
and made a tag.
For this tag I used
"Fern Background" (#58401)
"Feather on Side" (#6303) and 
"Tree Losing Leaves" (#34502)
all from Eureka! Stamps


I used the same technique for the background on the tag of
heat embossing and inking.
I then stamped the Feather and Tree onto 
hand made paper and tore pieces 
and adhered them to the tag.
I haven't yet decided how I will use my tag.
I may use it as part of a card
or on a scrapbook layout
or just as a tag on a gift.

I hope you have been inspired in some way and will join us 
for the Eureka! Stamps Challenge this week.
Hop over to the 
for all the details and more inspiration.

Thanks for stopping by today,
leave a comment if you will
and come again soon.

Until next time, Happy Crafting!

Hey Kristie, I love that Celtic background stamp! That must be a rubber stamp? I cant figure out how you would have done that with a digi. I'm stumped! DT sister, Julie

Kristie, both the card and the tag are such great projects. I love the look of both.
