If you're at all like me, there is a favorite Greeting or Sentiment stamp to which you go for a particular kind of card. This week our challenge is to make a greeting card that includes your favorite sentiment for that kind of card. Once you have your card done, post a photograph of it on your blog or in any other open online gallery, and then add a link to our Link Tool at the bottom of this post. 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!
Of course we have guidelines and they are detailed at the left and summarized below,, including the dates that this challenge is open.
Please remember this is an SUO (Stampin' Up! Only) challenge. Cards using non SU images, paper, etc will be removed. We also ask that you do not have advertisements for products (i.e. classes and subscription services) in your post. Please respect our criteria.
We're saying, "Goodbye," to one of our long-time Design Team Members!
We on the SUO Challenges Design Team are sad to have one of our long-time members leave the team. Deb Hoekstra will be providing her final bit of inspiration to all of us – as well as to all of you – with this challenge.
We wish Deb well and hope we will see her work back here from time to time as a challenge entrant!
We are excited already to have someone to fill the vacancy in the Design Team,
and we know you will be excited when our newest team member joins us for the next challenge!
And now on to some inspiration from our talented design team for this week's challenge!
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 November 4, 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: November 5, 2013 (3 am USA Eastern Time) –
