SUO Challenge #153 – Black & White with a Pop of Color

Black and White as a design theme seems to come up a lot these days. While I’m sure we all revel in all the colors that Stampin’ Up! offers in its collections, it’s always fun to see a beautiful project made using just Black and White. We’re not going to go quite that far in this challenge, though. Your challenge this time is to create a Black and White project and add a pop of color for a delightfully artistic look.

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

To participate in our challenge, make a card or other paper-crafted project, using Stampin’ Up! products only, 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. If you are linking to a blog, please link to the specific post that contains your project.

PLEASE remember this: We’re looking for projects posted to the internet AFTER July 18, 2016. This is a NEW challenge! AND please mention/link to the SUO Challenge Blog in your post! We’d really like it if you’d mention us early in your blog post!

Of course, your projects must 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: July 19, 2016 (3 am USA Eastern Time) –
July 30, 2016 (6 am USA Eastern Time)



SUO Challenge #152 – Delight in Nature

One of the things we’ve noticed about the new Stampin’ Up! Catalog is that there are lots and lots of images that occur in nature – land, sea and sky.  Your challenge this time is to share a project that features something delightful about nature that you can create with Stampin’ Up! products (and retired products are good for this, too!)

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

To participate in our challenge, make a card or other paper-crafted project, using Stampin’ Up! products only, and post a photo of it to your blog or a gallery on the internet.

SUO Challenge #145, Cute Critters

As we get into Spring in the Northern Hemisphere and Autumn in the Southern Hemisphere, there is a lot of activity going on in the world of critters. Our domestic pets are spending a different amount of time outdoors, and wild critters are seen more or less, depending on where you live. But all the critters are cute in some way, and your challenge this time is to create a card or other project featuring cute critters.

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

To participate in our challenge, make a card  or other paper-crafted project, using Stampin’ Up! products only, 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.

If you do not celebrate this holiday, you’re still welcome to join us by showing off what you’re making this time of the year to celebrate the arrival of Spring! We love to see what everyone is making!

To get you started with ideas, our Design Team has shared their ideas for Easter.  We look forward to seeing what you do with this challenge.
