SUO Challenge #119 – Fun Folds!

Most of the cards we all make are usually rectangles or squares folded in half.  Several weeks ago, we challenged you to use a different shape.  Your challenge this time is to make a greeting card that's folded differently than simply in half. We can all hardly wait to see the fun ways you choose to fold your cards!

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 March 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:  March 24, 2015  (3 am USA Eastern Time) –

Susie Nelson. The sponged sunburst background around the cross image is clean and simple, yet has such a perfect impact for this Easter card.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lindsey Bowe.  How sweet is this bunny basket?!  The darling punch art is beautifully accented by the dotted embossing on the basket and its handle.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bronwyn Eastley.  This butterfly on the basket is a perfect ensemble for Easter, using some of the newest Stampin' Up! products!

SUO Challenge 117, Cards for Teens – Our Top 3!

Thanks to everyone who participated in our challenge to feature a card made for a Teen. 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.

Joanne James.  Joanne made this card using My Digital Studio by Stampin' Up! to create the image of the skateboarder, which she cut with an e-cutter.  The way she used the black and silver ink to make spatters before adhering the image to the card set this image off perfectly.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tracey Vidal. We loved the use of the retired Sale-a-bration stamp set. This, along with the Gorgeous Grunge background and just the little spots of color in the button and Designer Series Paper make this a perfect card for a teen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mary Ann Rossiter (StampinMak). Mary Ann also used the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set as a background for  her card.  The colors in the stamping resist Sale-a-bration paper from this year along with the coordinating balloon images bring this card together to make it special for a teen.
