SUO Challenge #108: The Treat’s the Thing

As we get closer to the fall and winter holidays, we begin to think of making fun treats for all our holiday events.  There's Halloween and Trick or Treat.  Then there's Thanksgiving (in the USA and Canada) with favors and treats for the holiday table.  And finally there are Hannukah and Christmas and other winter holidays where treats are all around us.

Your challenge for this SUO Challenge is to make a treat or a container for a treat – using Stampin' Up! products only, of course!.  Once you have your project done, post a photograph of it on your blog or in any other open online gallery, and then add a link to our Link Tool at the bottom of this post.

Need some ideas to get your creativity started?  Then check out our Design Team projects – and have fun with you own project!

To participate in our challenge, make a card or other paper-crafted project and post a photo of it to your blog or a gallery on the internet.  Then come back here and use our link tool at the bottom of this post to share the photo with us.

PLEASE remember this:  We’re looking for projects posted to the internet AFTER October 20, 2014.  This is a NEW challenge!  AND please mention/link to the SUO Challenge Blog in your post!

And, of course, your projects should be made with Stampin’ Up! products only.    The products may be those that are in current catalogs, or they may be retired products.  But (as our blog title says) SUO – Stampin’ Up! Only!  This means that products from other papercrafting, rubber stamp, die-making or other companies may not be included in your project or in any other project included in your blog post if Stampin’ Up! sells a like product.  For example, Stampin’ Up! does not sell sewing thread.  So use of sewing thread from another company is just fine.  Stampin’ Up! does sell the Sizzix Big Shot, so use of die-cuts, texture plates or other such products from another company is not fine.  If you have a question, please send an e-mail to our Coordinator, Robin Messenheimer, and she’ll be glad to answer it!

Challenge Dates:  October 21, 2014  (3 am USA Eastern Time) –

Jodi McKinney.  Jodi's artistic use of the yellows and purples shows off this scene so realistically.  It's all so peaceful – we wish we could be there!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cindy Brumbaugh.  What can we say but that we loved this Clean and Simple outdoor snow scene with the adorable shaker effect.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Christy S.  The acrylic block technique that Christy used is perfect for this row of trees. The fall colors add to this outdoorsy feeling beautifully.

SUO Challenge 107: Out in the Woods

Whether you're in the season of Autumn or the season of Spring, it's a great time to be outdoors!  Even when we get towards the winter holidays, we focus on the beauty of the outdoors, whether nature's beauty or beauty we've created.

Your challenge for this SUO Challenge is to make a card or other project featuring something you'd find out in the woods.  Once you have your project done, post a photograph of it on your blog or in any other open online gallery, and then add a link to our Link Tool at the bottom of this post.
