SUO Challenge #117 – Cards for Teens

For this challenge, we've decided to focus on a group of people for whom it's often really difficult to come up with a card design – Teens!  So your challenge is to make a card for a teenager.  There doesn't have to be a particular theme – it can be birthday, holiday, congratulations, or no theme in particular.  It just had to be something that would be appropriate for a teen.

Need some ideas to get your creativity started?  Then check out our Design Team projects – and have fun with your own project!

To participate in our challenge, make a card  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 February 23, 2015  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:  February 24, 2015  (3 am USA Eastern Time) –

SUO Challenge 116, Shape Up – Our Top 3!

Thanks to everyone who participated in our challenge to feature a project with an unusual shape. Thanks especially to our Top 3 whom we felt did the best job of capturing our theme for the week!  Click on the pictures of their projects to go to their blogs or galleries for more details.

Kathe Deck.  This donut design for a greeting card is so sweet – how clever! The bite out of it along with the cute sprinkles are the perfect accents.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lisa Walsh. Another clever design!  We love how each of the "stacked" boxes has its own pullout and "secret" message!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Donna Centamore (Butternut Sage). The quilling makes this beautiful card so very elegant.  We all want one!!

SUO Challenge #116 – Shape Up!

With most of us already having our Valentine cards in the mail, and no holidays on the immediate horizon, we decided to try something a bit different.  Yes, the focus will be on cards – but not just any cards. Your challenge this time is to make a card that has a shape that is not a rectangle or square. Hearts, circles, triangles, die cuts — you name it!  If it's not a square or rectangle it belongs in this challenge! Need some ideas to get your creativity started?  Then check out our Design Team projects – and have fun with your own project!

SUO Challenge 115, Valentines – Our Top 3!

Thanks to everyone who participated in our challenge to feature a project with a Valentine Wish! Thanks especially to our Top 3 whom we felt did the best job of capturing our theme for the week!  Click on the pictures of their projects to go to their blogs or galleries for more details.

 

Michelle Long.  What a stunning card this is!  It's so much fun being taken back to the days when every Valentine had some lace on it!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cindy Brumbaugh.  This is a beautifully made gift bag!  Everything about it coordinates so well.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jenny Gauthier.  The black heart-dotted background just makes the bit of red in this card "pop."  And the hand stitching is just lovely!
