CASology Week 107: Stripe








Hello and happy Tuesday.  It's time for another challenge at CASology.  There were so many incredible entries into last week's challenge.  Our gallery was awash in bright and happy colors.  We have a new cue word for you this week--it's STRIPE.  

I decided to use stripes in two ways on my card.  The first way is one of my very favorite ways to use patterned papers.  Most 6X6 pads have at least one striped pattern.  A trick I learned at one of the on-line classes I took last year is to use a narrow strip of the striped paper along the side of my card--it is a great way to set the color scheme for my card.  I also used diagonal stripes on my card front--made using an impression plate.




Now, it is your turn.  What do you think of when you see the word STRIPE?  Have some fun with the cue word STRIPE, and then please link up your creation on the CASology blog by Monday at noon (CST). 
 

Check out the beautiful designs from the CASology Design Team members and see how they were inspired by STRIPE.  
Don't forget to keep your card Clean and Simple.





 
 Thanks for Visiting

  15. I remember that striped paper hint (but forget to use it). Your ice cream matches it perfectly and the wonderful embossed stripe background just sets it off.
