Challenge - Stripes

Hello all and welcome to another challenge at A Passion For Papertey. We had a lovely selection of cards to choose from in our book-themed challenge - some very clever ideas came out!!

This time we're asking you to make a card or project which showcases some form of STRIPES! You could use patterned paper, card, stamps, ribbon - what ever takes your fancy! Can't wait to see what you all come up with this time round.

Caryn, Kate and Aimes.

First up is Caryn...
I was totally influenced this week by the current Tuesday Trigger Challenge over on Moxie Fab World. They have a yummy picture of a cake and I was inspired to use that as my starting point. This is what I came up with:
{Recipe} Hi
CS: Dark chocolate, Hibiscus Burst, Vintage Cream
Tools: Seeing stars dies, Block Alphabet dies, Linen/Canvas Impression plate
Ribbon: Top Notch Twill (Dark Chocolate, Sweet Blush), Solid Satin (Hibiscus Burst, Dark Chocolate), Swiss Dot (Berry Sorbet)

Funnily enough this card was made without any stamps or ink!! It's a totally tool-based card!

Over to Kate:

"I chose to make that ever-difficult card - one for the boys! I used the Chevron Stripes set to make the striped background, wow that set is so much fun to use. I hope you have as much fun with your stripes as I did!"

Card Details:
Stamps: Chevron Stripes/Fillable Frames 1
Card: Basic Black/Kraft/Vintage Cream
Ink: Basic Black/Pure Poppy/Spring Rain
Other: Fillable Frames Die 1/Border Punch

Aimes is trapped in some remote part of ice-stricken England at the moment and so I am posting one of her fabulous cards from her blog whilst we wait for her to defrost! She will be back sometime in the week with a new card for the challenge!

Card Deets {Many Thanks}
Stamps: Sentiment from Frame-It (Waltzingmouse Stamps)
Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Cardstock: White, True Black (Papertrey Ink)
Accessories: Butterfly Die (Papertrey Ink)/Grand Calibur, Circle Nestability (Spellbinders)/Pigment ink pen (Zig)

So what is up for grabs for a lucky random winner this time?

The stunning Mehndi Medallion stamp set (yum).

I am loving this CAS layouts! I love the subtle texture of the linen/canvas impression plate. I can't wait to snag a set of the chevron stripes, the bold and fun effect they create is fantastic. I never would have thought that stripes could compliment an organic shape such as a butterfly, but I really like the effect of that is well. Beautiful work ladies! =)

Thanks for the wonderful inspiration, ladies! I do struggle a bit with incorporating stripes into projects so maybe I should take the time to play along with you :) Have a wonderful Sunday, all!
