SUO Challenge #63 – Clean and Simple Valentines

     With so many new – and not so new – Stampin' Up! products to use for Valentine Cards, it's a wonder that they're not all just covered with layers of papers and dozens of embellishments!  It's so easy to put lots of Stampin' Up! products together to create elegant cards, especially for such special card-giving times as Valentine's Day!

     But some of the most elegant cards that we've seen here at Stampin' Up! Only Challenges are elegant because of the Clean and Simple (or CAS) way that elements have been put together on the cards.  Sometimes it takes a bit more thought and planning than for a more complicated card.  But the results can be absolutely stunning.

     So that's your challenge this time – to make a Clean and Simple Valentire's Day Card!   There's a wide variety in what different stampers consider CAS, as you'll see in our Design Team entries for this week.  And we're looking forward to what YOU have to offer with your own take on the CAS Valentines!

    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.  We're looking for cards posted to the internet after January 28, 2013, and (of course!) 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:  January 29, 2013  (3 am USA Eastern Time) –

February 9, 2013 (9 am USA Eastern Time)
