#133 Stripes

Leslie is hosting for us this time and she would like to see Stripes. Sadly this is Leslie's last challenge with us, and we will miss her, but we wish her luck in her new ventures.

Inspiration from the team

The clear embossed diagonal lines were created with the Impression Obsession Diagonal Lines background stamp. I cut and inked strips of GKD 6x6 patterned papers and affixed them on the opposite angle. The hello die cut is from Mama Elephant.


The Tatty Twinkle images were coloured and cut out before attaching them to a background created from my stash of papers.


I've used some paper from the Joanna Sheen Thomas Kindaid CDRom and dies from Sizzix and Marianne to create this card for my son's birthday.
I have used two different shades of blue stripe papers from Buckwells Craft Supplies the image is a stamp that I have had for many years.
I used a home made stencil and a blending tool with some Tim Holtz Scattered Straw and Hero Arts Tide Pool inks to create some diagonal lines as a backdrop for my spring romance card. 

I used one of the new Candibean Stamps from Di's Digi Designs, different
makes of striped papers.

I have cut some strips of papers and glued them onto a square of backing paper to achieve my striped background. I have also used a sentiment stamp, a butterfly and some ribbon, lace and pearls.

I chose some lovely My Mind's Eye striped papers from my stash to compliment the stamped and embossed flower.

My lovely stripes are from Bo Bunny and older range - Back to Basics.  I fussy cut out the banners and frame from these papers as well.  I popped up the green balloon to give it all a bit of dimension.

I picked this card frame from Crafter's Companion Sugar and Spice CD, and teamed it with two of the co-ordinating striped papers!! 

I used papers from Basic Grey for my Stripes, and an image from Sugar Nellie. Please see my blog if you want more details

I've been playing with Serif a lot lately - my card this time was composed using Craft Artist 2, but elements of it were cut out and layered physically.  The butterflies were a memory box die and buttons were from my stash.

There are all sorts of stripes in here, some obvious, some not... the papers are from MME, which I have used with the stripe going top to bottom and the corrugated card where the stripe goes horizontally.  Love the pop of red against the white and neutral colour scheme!
