Pretty much all of our paper crafting projects using Stampin' Up! products feature paper, ink, and accessories. But in the realm of accessories there's a special category called "Embellishments." For a good definition of "embellishments," turn to pages 208 and 209 of the 2014-2015 Stampin' Up! Catalog. There are buttons and clips and jewels and other fun accessories for your projects. Your challenge for this SUO Challenge is to make a card or other project featuring as a highlight at least one of the embellishments on those pages in the catalog, or similar types of products in the Stampin' Up! 2014 Holiday Catalog. Once you have your project 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.
If you need some inspiration to get you started, and for different ways that our Design Team Members used embellishments, check out their fun designs below!!
But before we all get started enjoying the Design Team projects, I'd like you to join me in saying a fond, "Farewell," to Design Team Member, Bronwyn Eastley. This is her last Design Team Challenge, and we're all so sorry to see her go. But I have it on good authority that she'll be around sharing her projects with us in other venues. We'll miss you! Here is one last project that she has for 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 September 8, 2014. 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!
