SUO Challenge #79 – A Favorite Technique!

     As we work on our paper crafting projects, many of us have a favorite technique that we add to our projects when it's possible.  I didn't need to sit and figure out what my favorite technique is – I knew immediately when we got to this challenge what I would like to show off.  Now that I see our Design Team projects for this challenge, I can also see where I might just have to rethink "favorite"!  I love them all, and I hope you do, too!

     And speaking of you – we'd like to know what YOUR favorite paper crafting technique is!  That's your challenge for SUO Challenge #79 – to create a project using your favorite technique.  What's the technique that you use that makes you smile the most when you're working on or have completed a project? Make a card or any paper crafting project – using Stampin' Up! products, only, of course – and enter it in this challenge through the link tool at the end of this post.

     The details of our guidelines are over at the left.  But I summarize them at the end of the post, including the dates that this challenge is open.  If you have any questions about linking your project or problems in creating the link, be sure to let the challenge coordinator, Robin Messenheimer, know.  We cheerfully help crafters out just about every challenge, so don't be bashful about asking for help!

     And now for the entries from the ladies AND gentleman of our Design Team!

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 September 9, 2013.  This is a NEW challenge!  AND please mention/link to the SUO Challenge Blog in your post!

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:  September 10, 2013  (3 am USA Eastern Time) –

September 21, 2013 (6 am USA Eastern Time)
