This week's challenge is SFC3614 Stripes

This week's challenge  is to add something with stripes to your card. That could be something in your image that is striped, striped paper on your card, a striped embellishment (like a flower or brad) or surprise us, as long as your card has some stripes.  We'd love for you to use a Squigglefly image, to be prize eligible it's required, but everyone is welcome to play along.

 Elizabeth Hart designed this gorgeous card using a brand new stamp from Squigglefly artist Cheryl Alger called Autumn Swing.  Don't you love the striped paper in her card's background?  Just lovely.  How about those tiny acorns?

 
 Jen Leeflang created this adorable Christmas theme card with a lovely image from artist Tam Hess.  Isn't her coloring stunning?  This image is called Winter Fox.   That sentiment is too cute.

  
Darlene Pavlick created this gorgeous two tone card.  I just LOVE this color combination, did you notice both papers she chose have stripes on them?  She is using a brand new image from artist Fawn Palmer. This image is called Hurt Bunny.  This sweet image comes with the sentiment shown and one additional saying.

 
Tammy Hair created this get well card using a new stamp from artist Fawn Palmer. This lovely image is called Hurt Bunny.  Can you tell what the stripes are? Yep, it's done with gauze bandages.  How cool is that?

 

And lastly, I (Holley Barnhart from Holley's Blog) used this adorable image from Squigglefly artist Sandra Caldwell.  This cutie is called Raggedy El and Ellie.  There's both stripes in my image, as well as on my card base.

Squigglefly Challenge #34, SFC3414 Let's go 'round the Block

Welcome to the Squigglefly Challenge Blog!

Hello everyone! Welcome to this week's Squigglefly Challenge. First let's announce last week's winner.  Last week, our challenge was to create a card using Red, Brown, Yellow, and Orange.   The winner is Suze, who used a beautiful perched owl image from artist Deena Perault.
  
This week's winner can please contact Holly at usyungs@gmail.com for your prize.
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This week's challenge is SFC3414 Let's go 'round the block

This week's challenge  is called let's go 'round the block.  The challenge is to round everything on your card.  You can use die cut shapes (like ovals, circles...) that are already rounded, but any square corners are not allowed.  We'd love for you to use a Squigglefly image, to be prize eligible it's required, but everyone is welcome to play along.
 
Let's start with some great examples from the Holley Hobbyists:
 
Pat Martin thought up a great idea for this project!  She made a clock!  This wonderful image is from artist Sandra Caldwell and she is called Angel and the Birdy.  I am guessing this project will go round and round and round,....
 
Kecia Waters  created this adorable card using a new image from Squigglefly artist James Sandra Caldwell.  She used some rounded corners and enclosed her image in circle diecuts. This image is called  Bearly in School..  I love the colors she used!



 Elizabeth Hart designed this gorgeous card using a new stamp from Squigglefly artist Norma Burrell.  This image is called Dreamer. Isn't the color combo on this card just stunning?  How about those pearl dots on her image?
 

 Jen Leeflang created this stunning card with a lovely image from artist Norma Burrell.  Isn't her coloring stunning?  This image is called Pussywillow Fairy.   Below shows the inside of the card as well.

  
Darlene Pavlick created this stunning monotone masterpiece using a wonderful image from artist James Horvath. This image is called Notepad and Pencil. Now, could you tell that is just what this image was? she added an amazing cover to the notepad!  This image is on sale at the store for just $1!  Look at how clever and stunning this card is, perfect for that history buff/traveler you know.  Think of all the clever things you can do with this simple image and Darlene's idea.
 
Tammy Hair created this bright and beautiful card using a new stamp from artist Cheryl Alger. This lovely image is called Hello There Neighbor.  The sign on the stamp is actually left blank so you can fill it in. Don't you want to reach out and hug her?
 

And lastly, I (Holley Barnhart from Holley's Blog) used this adorable image from Squigglefly artist Sandra Caldwell.  This cutie is called Bearly on a Cloud.  I used a corner rounder punch on all my corners for the challenge.
 
I hope these cards have inspired you to make a card to play along this week.  You are always welcome to play no matter what images you use, but to be eligible for the prize, please use at least one stamp from Squigglefly!
