SUO Challenge #94, It’s Easter Time!

Spring is here and Easter is on its way!! Your challenge this time is to make a card or other papercrafted project that features Easter.  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. If you have any questions about linking your project or problems in creating the link, be sure to let the challenge coordinator, Robin Messenheimer, know.  We cheerfully help crafters out just about every challenge, so don't be bashful about asking for help!

Of course we have guidelines and they are detailed at the left and summarized below,, including the dates that this challenge is open.

Please remember this is an SUO (Stampin' Up! Only) challenge.  Projects using non-SU! images, paper, embellishments, etc., will be removed.  We also ask that you do not have advertisements for products (e.g., classes and subscription services) in your post.  Please respect our criteria.

And now on to some inspiration from our talented design team for this week's challenge!

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 April 7, 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:  April 8, 2014  (3 am USA Eastern Time) –

SUO Challenges 93, Boxes, Bags and Baskets – Our Top 4!

A big, “Thank You,” to those of you who joined in our latest SUO Challenge, to make Boxes, Bags or Baskets.  We usually name our Top 3 of each challenge the Monday following each challenge.  This time, though, we’ve decided, based on the small number of challenge entries, that each of the entrants was deserving of being named a “Top 3” even though there were four of them! 

Each one of these entries was delightful and we hope you will visit each of the blogs through the links at the bottom of the previous post.

Congratulations to:

  • Louise Cyr
  • Lyndsey Bowe
  • Denise Diuk
  • Holly Carlin

We look forward to your joining in our next challenge to be published tomorrow!


SUO Challenges #93: Boxes, Bags and Baskets

When I went to upload all the Design Team projects to this SUO Challenge blog post, my very first thought was, "I wish I had a place to shop for all these fun Boxes, Bags and Baskets!"  Such fun designs and wonderful colors.  But the best part is that there will undoubtedly be more as you undertake this challenge to make any kind of a Box, Bag or Basket – 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. If you have any questions about linking your project or problems in creating the link, be sure to let the challenge coordinator, Robin Messenheimer, know.  We cheerfully help crafters out just about every challenge, so don't be bashful about asking for help!

SUO Challenges 92, Pinks & Purples – Our Top 3!

Thanks to everyone who participated in our latest challenge. There are so many beautifully different ways that Stampin' Up! Pink and Purples can be used – and we enjoyed seeing so many of them!

Thanks especially to our Top 3 whom we felt did the best job of capturing our theme for the week!  Click on the pictures of their projects to go to their blogs or galleries for more details.

 

Heather Van Looy.  This is such a soft and lovely card.  We love the way that Heather fussy cut another flower and added it to the outside of the design.  With this and the dry embossing of the top layer, there is such nice texture to this card!  The Sahara Sand is a beautiful neutral for this design, too.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Julia Quinn.  We really liked the lacy soft  touch to these bookmarks.  The "Viola's Lace" wheel design with these colors almost makes it look like real lace!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stacey Ailes.  What soft vintage loveliness in this teabag holder.  The ribbon detail and the scattered pearls are the perfect accents.
