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 114, the Dotty Challenge – Our Top 3!

Thanks to everyone who participated in our challenge to feature a project with Dots – of any kind!. 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.

 

Marcee Rodgers.  What a beautiful Clean and Simple (CAS) card using the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set for the dots of this challenge.  The colors that Marcee used, along with the Linen Thread and the sequins, did a great job of setting off the greeting as the focal point.

 

 

 

 

Chris Slogar.  We really liked Chris' take on the Bokeh effect that's currently very popular with crafters.  How clever to use the various sizes of punched circles to make the dots that are the feature of this challenge!

 

 

 

 

Linda Callahan.  We were so glad to see the Sale-a-Bration stamp set, Lotus Blossom, featured in one of our Top 3!  Linda cut out the main image and then accented it not only with the dots on the Designer Series Paper dots, but also with the textured front of the card.  What fun!

SUO Challenge 113, PLxSU – Congratulations to All!

Thanks to everyone who submitted an entry in our challenge to use Stampin' Up! Project Life products.  With so few entries from which to choose our Top 3, you can imagine that we had a hard time, especially as all of the projects were wonderful.

So we're happy to thank each one of you individually for your projects.  I hope those of you who would like some ideas for using your Project Life by Stampin' Up (PLxSU) will find some inspiration in these projects.
