Stars OR Stripes, Forever... plus Double Trouble Challenge

It's time for Christmas in July and once again we've teamed up with the gang at Double Trouble Challenge which means you'll have twice as many opportunities to link up AND to win prizes!

You can link up ANY Christmas themed project with Double Trouble. Here at Jingle Belles, we're excited to be celebrating the USA's Independence Day next week, so we're asking you to incorporate either stars or stripes into your card design (it needn't be red, white or blue) … just stars or stripes (or both) in any medium you choose.

Here's what we did with our Stars and/or Stripes:

Stephanie says, "I started with scraps of striped paper from PhotoPlay's Not a Creature was Stirring that were the perfect holiday stripes and built my slimline card using other paper scraps and a collection of striped washi tape.  I added one of the images from the same collection (which sneaks in some stars) and finished with some sequins and a stamped sentiment from Impress Holiday Word Set (did you ever think about Santa decorating his own Christmas tree?)Layout is the flipped Sunday Stamps Sketch."

Lauren says, "My stars and stripes are, as you can see, subtle... just one starry and one stripey patterned paper, plus some really fun glitter foam star stickers; but it just goes to show that the "Stars and/or Stripes" theme is pretty flexible! I've built a little Doodlebug sticker collage on top of a cluster of patterned paper circles and added a wordfetti sentiment from Photoplay."


Oh yes, we mentioned prizes, didn't we? Head over to the Double Trouble Challenge to see what you might win by linking up with them. Meanwhile, one randomly selected cardmaker who links up a newly made Stars and/or Stripes card, will win two adorable clear stamp sets from Pebbles!

Link your Stars and/or Stripes cards right here by 6pm (Eastern) on Wednesday, July 12th. Then head over to the Double Trouble Challenge Blog to link up with them as well! Our keyword for galleries and Flickr is JB2314. 

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
