For those of us in the United States, we will be celebrating our national Independence Day. the Fourth of July, just about the time that this challenge comes to an end. But having so many of you from throughout the Stampin' Up! world – not just the United States – we wanted to make sure that this was a topic that would appeal even if there isn't a current holiday to celebrate. I'm anxious to see entries from all over the world featuring colors and designs that you consider patriotic.
So Patriotic Projects are what we're looking for in the SU Only Challenge #73! Of course, as always, the challenge is to make this with Stampin' Up! products only. The rules are printed over to the left and embellished a bit at the end of this blog post.
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 June 17, 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!
Challenge Dates: June 18, 2013 (3 am USA Eastern Time) –
June 29, 2013 (6 am USA Eastern Time)
