Don't you love when Tigger calls himself *Stripedy*? I always think it's so cute.

Today's Ways to Use It Challenge at SCS was to use stripes. Well, it wasn't until this afternoon that I could get to anything, but sheesh I almost didn't upload. The ideas in my head did not translate the best to paper.

Glitterfied Stripes

Last week my upline showed me a fabulous card with the sticky cuts, a heart that was in stripes...she said they cut the top layer (red/pink layer) of the sticky cuts with a craft knife and then added the different colors of superfine glitter in stripes! So SMART! And boy was it fabulous looking. So I thought I'd try it, but it wasn't as easy as it looked...I think I remade this card 4 times. In the end, it's cool looking...just frustrating!! Yes it really is that glittery (and more) in real life!

Scooters and Stripes

This was for a boys birthday party (again!) I love this little retired set The Wheel Thing...I don't think I'll ever part with it. And remember *The Donna* technique? Where you stamp once then do repeated stamping to give the feeling of motion? So cute.

I paper pieced the parts of the scooter in the paper colors. My sentiment isn't quite straight...but I was in such a rush to finish it so he could get out the door to the party.

New large brads on the wheels too as hub caps! Hee hee!

I LOVE YOUR BLOG/Style. You don't use tons of layers and DP's and your cards are still wonderful. I think that's great.

I love the fabulous colors in the striped card Christine, so bright and cheery. Totally loving the scooter! I've never tried the motion technique, it's as Denise put it, "flippin' cool!" Way too funny, she's so adorable!
