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!

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 26, 2015  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:  January 27, 2015  (3 am USA Eastern Time) –

SUO Challenge #63, CAS Valentines – Our Top 3!

     Oh, my, what a wonderful collection of easy to make Clean and Simple Valentines you showed off during our last challenge!  Of course, some were more "clean and simple" than others.  But there is a wide variety of opinions on what constitutes CAS.  All these different ideas is what makes looking at all these wonderful project samples so much fun!

     Thank you to everyone who contributed a gorgeous project for this challenge – and they were ALL gorgeous!  We have selected a "Top 3," though, and they are:

 

Karren J.  made a card that we all agreed was the epitome of "Clean and Simple."  What a beautiful splash of red in the one corner of the card and the rhinestone accented it perfectly!

 

 

Gail Wheeler.  The Naturals Composition envelope and the distressed background complement each other so well – and provide the perfect background layout for the hearts and greeting.  Lovely card!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kristine Giampietro.  We loved the party favor, and especially the pearl heart on the tag.  The texture on the pillow box accented the two pieces of pink with their pearl accents beautifully.  What a fun project!
