SUO #139, Cards in Wintertime

The holidays are over and the new year has begun. But up in the northern hemisphere we’re just really getting into Wintertime. What kind of a card do you make when you’re sending out a general kind of card during the deep winter months? Your challenge this time is to make one to share with us and our readers and enter it in our first full challenge of 2016.

To get you started with ideas, our Design Team has come up with a lovely assortment of cards. We look forward to seeing what you do with this 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 January 4, 2016.  This is a NEW challenge!  AND please mention/link to the SUO Challenge Blog in your post!

Of course, your projects must 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:  January 5, 2016  (3 am USA Eastern Time) –

SUO #138 – Into the New Year!

By now most of us have all of our Christmas projects done – oh, with some last minutes tags and gift card holders, probably. So now it’s time to look towards the new year. Where will your focus be? On cards with New Year’s Wishes? On Party Favors? Or maybe even on Thank You notes for holiday gifts? Whatever you’ll be working on over the next couple of weeks, your challenge for this group is to make a project with a New Year’s theme!

To get you started with ideas, our Design Team has come up with a lovely assortment of cards. We look forward to seeing what you do with this challenge.
