Memory Box Challenge #86- "Waving" Hello (Water-themed cards)

Challenge icons

Greetings friends. Thank you to everyone who participated in the challenge last month. We loved seeing all of your spectacular metallic creations.

The winner of the blog badge from June's challenge was Greta H from the GG Creations blog. We loved her multiple uses of metallics:



The random winner selected from all the entries to win the prizes was loll from the Stamping With Loll blog.

Please contact me at [email protected] with your full name and US address 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.

Please note, because of issues with shipping internationally, only domestic entries will be eligible to be shipped prizes. We are so very sorry that we had to add this stipulation.


July is here, and with it, a lot of us are headed to the ocean, lakes or pools. Water is all around us, even in the form of an afternoon summer rain. For this month, we would like to use water as your inspiration. Do you feel like an underwater scene? A beach sunset? A day on a boat? Staying at home out of the heat and listening to the rain? You really can do whatever you want! We just ask that you use some element of water on your card and that you use at least one Memory Box product.

Here are some samples to help inspire you:





There are several ways for you to enter the contest:

1.)  Link your finished work below

2.)  Enter on Instagram by tagging your sketch project with the #mbchallenge86 hashtag

You have until the end of the day (EST) on Saturday, July 30th.   Don't forget, you have to use at least one Memory Box item on your entry and only domestic entries are eligible to be shipped prizes. 

Here is what you could win:





Thank you so much for picking my card! I loved making it!
