Memory Box Challenge #51 Striped Cards

Challenge icons

Greetings friends.  It is a new month and time to introduce another Memory Box challenge. We hope you will play along with the theme through the end of the month.  You will even have the chance to win prizes!  Thank you SO MUCH to everyone who played along with us for our last challenge. We are always inspired by your submissions!

The winner of the blog badge and the random winner were both Jo Jo's Spot from the Jo-Jo's Spot blog.  She created a lovely and elegant butterfly card:


Please contact me at [email protected] to claim your prize.

Want to play along in this month's challenge?  The rules are simple - just create a project following the theme, use at least one Memory Box stamp or die on your project and link your entry to this blog post.  You can make a card, a scrapbook page, a home decor item, etc..  To encourage participants with various levels of stamping experience, one entry will be selected at random to win a prize. Enter as many times as you want, but your name will only be entered once into the random prize drawing.   In addition, the design team will select their favorite entry to  be highlighted on the Outside the Box blog and that designer will receive our winner badge to proudly display on their blog. 

You don't have to have a blog in order to participate.   You can upload your project to any online gallery and link it to this post.   In fairness to other players, we reserve the right to remove entries that do not use at least one Memory Box product.  You are also welcome to link your design to other challenges.  Feel free to grab our badge to post on your blog post or side bar.


This month's theme is all about stripes.  There can be striped backgrounds, stamps, dies, layouts, etc.  How do you use stripes in your cards?  We would love to see your projects that have stripes on them.  All we ask is that you use at least one Memory Box product in your entry.

Here are some design team samples to get you started:

Congrats to Jo-Jo. Fun theme and lovely inspiration from the team. My prize for winning the CAS challenge arrived so thinking of ways to use stripes under the sea LOL. Thanks so much for a fab challenge and prizes. Hugz

Happy Dance to the winner - Yeah - thanks for the new challenge - also the DT did a fab job! TFS your ideas!

Sorry I made a mistake. I have used a poppystamp die instead of a memeory box die. Nr 6
