After weeks where we had such colorful cards to show off here at SUO Challenges, this week we're dialing it back a bit. We'd like to make this a week for Monochrome – or just one color – cards. Now, that's just one color besides a Neutral or pale color you choose for your accent color. I, for example, used Vanilla as my accent for Not Quite Navy. But any of the browns and even gray and black can be perfect to set off one of the other colors in the Stampin' Up! rainbow!
So that's your challenge for the week – just one main color to go with your neutral accent. Heavens, you can go without an accent "color" if you'd like! The general rules for our challenge are at the left, and are summarized at the bottom of this blog post.
We're looking forward to your entries! And here to get you started are our Design Team entries.
Ooops! I almost forgot – we're losing one of our Design Team members to other activities! This week will be the last Design Team posting for Heidi Baks, who has been with SUO Challenges almost since Day 1. We are all sorry to see her go. But she'll still be around the Stampin' Up! community online, so please be sure to look her up and see what she's up to!
Bye, Heidi – and the best of wishes for everything that you do. We've loved having you!!!
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 8, 2013. This is a NEW challenge!
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!
