SUO Challenge #158 – Thanks and Thanksgiving

Fall is finally here for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere! And in North America, we’re getting close to the time when Canada and the United States celebrate  Thanksgiving.  Many of us send greeting cards or make fun table decorations for this holiday. So a challenge to make a Thanksgiving card or decoration is the first part of this challenge. But for those of you who would rather simply make a card or other project that expresses, “Thanks,” we’d love to see your projects, too. Make any kind of project you’d like, post it online, and link to our link tool at the bottom of this post to post a thumbnail of your project here.

And now here are the projects from the Design Team!

SUO Challenge #157 – All Kinds of Weather!

Around the world the seasons are changing. In the northern hemisphere, we’re headed into Autumn and in the southern hemisphere, heading into Spring. In either part of the globe, this is the time of year when you can have just about any kind of weather there is! So your challenge for mid-September is to make a card or any other paper-crafted project featuring any kind of weather (and one of our Design Team members even made an “under the weather” card!). Make any kind of project you’d like, post it online, and link to our link tool at the bottom of this post to post a thumbnail of your project here.

Before I introduce the Design Team’s projects for this challenge, I would like to introduce the newest member of our team, Jason Loucks. Here is his very own introduction to all of us:

Born and raised in upstate New York, I currently reside in the state of Connecticut, where I live with my fur-baby, Lucky. I started card making when I joined Stampin’ Up! in the spring of 2012 but had to resign due to unforeseen circumstances, I have since rejoined and I’m enjoying every minute of it. When not working on my Stampin’ Up! business, I work for a local motorcycle apparel shop who has been in business for over 30 years. Though I don’t ride, I’ve enjoyed working for the company for over 6 years now.

In my free time, I like to relax and enjoy a good television show or movie on Netflix/Amazon. If I’m not watching the television, I can usually be found on my phone or computer, watching the latest crafty videos or spending too much time on Pinterest; it’s amazing how much time you spend on Pinterest and don’t even know it!

 

Welcome, Jason!

And now here are the projects from Jason and the rest of the Design Team!

SUO Challenge #156 – Primary Colors

In most parts of the United States this is Back to School time. But it’s not necessarily back to school for our entire Stampin’ Up! world. So this year, rather than celebrate back to school, we showing off Primary Colors, as in the colors that get most kids started in the early school years with their art work. Of course, besides Red, Blue and Yellow (the true primary colors), there are other bright colors that adults as well as children love. So your challenge this time is to use the Primary Colors, or maybe a color or two made up of two of the primaries, in a project. Make any kind of project you’d like, post it online, and link to our link tool at the bottom of this post.

Some quick reminders about our rules. There are more details over on our left sidebar under “About.”

  • Please use Stampin’ Up! products only. We will remove any entries with products from other similar companies.
  • Please mention SUO Challenges and link back to this post in your post. Projects that do not will not qualify for Top 3 consideration.
  • Please do not post projects in which you are selling tutorials. We will remove any entries if you’re selling anything but Stampin’ Up!’s own products.

Check out our Design Team’s projects for some great ideas. We look forward to seeing what you do with this challenge.
