Eureka!

Did I say Eureka?  That's what I'm talking about Eureka Stamps, that is.  I think everyone will be making a STAMPEDE - I FOUND IT!  I FOUND IT!  EUREKA!   We have two sponsors for the Die Cut Divas August challenge, Eureka Stamps and QKR Stampede.

Eureka Stamps is the sister company of QKR Stampede and offers wonderful hand drawn calligraphy, verses, large alphabet letters and backgrounds  There are fine art animals, whimsical Valentine characters and lots of cute Christmas and birthday stamps for cat and dog lovers too.

QKR Stampede offers unmounted rubber stamps, digital stamps, full sheets and supplies. Visit QKR Stampede for those unique, somewhat quirky styles with lots of humor and character.

I followed Paula's fantastic sketch for the month of August.  You have to love it and enter our August challenge.                                                    
Paula's sketch
I love the digital parchment stamp as there is so much you can do with it.  The image is blank the parchment devoid of writing or any inscription.  It feels like a fresh slate on which to hand-write your thoughts with an old-fashioned fountain pen.  Eureka Stamps offers both rubber and digital stamps. The Scroll Frame below comes in both.  I think this would work well in a vintage style card too.  Don't you?

I love this card. It looks textured/weathered and is so appealing to my eyes.

This is beautiful Arlene. I so love the elegant, but yet vintage style of this card. Your ability to always pair up amazing patterned paper with die cuts just blows me away every time. Miss you sweetie. It has been awhile since I been over at the HA group that we share. Hope all is well with you. Your cardmaking is well on it's way as this example shows today. Love the scroll and the calligraphy pen. Reminds me of the day when I took classes back in grade 6. Wow that was a bit ago. Lol. Take care sweetie.
