Fall is finally here for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere! And in North America, we’re getting close to the time when Canada and the United States celebrate Thanksgiving. Many of us send greeting cards or make fun table decorations for this holiday. So a challenge to make a Thanksgiving card or decoration is the first part of this challenge. But for those of you who would rather simply make a card or other project that expresses, “Thanks,” we’d love to see your projects, too. Make any kind of project you’d like, post it online, and link to our link tool at the bottom of this post to post a thumbnail of your project here.
And now here are the projects from the Design Team!
PLEASE remember this: We’re looking for projects posted to the internet AFTER September 26, 2016.
Challenge Dates: September 27, 2016 (3 am USA Eastern Time) –
October 8, 2016 (6 am USA Eastern Time)
Around the world the seasons are changing. In the northern hemisphere, we’re headed into Autumn and in the southern hemisphere, heading into Spring. In either part of the globe, this is the time of year when you can have just about any kind of weather there is! So your challenge for mid-September is to make a card or any other paper-crafted project featuring any kind of weather (and one of our Design Team members even made an “under the weather” card!). Make any kind of project you’d like, post it online, and link to our link tool at the bottom of this post to post a thumbnail of your project here.
Before I introduce the Design Team’s projects for this challenge, I would like to introduce the newest member of our team, Jason Loucks. Here is his very own introduction to all of us:
Born and raised in upstate New York, I currently reside in the state of Connecticut, where I live with my fur-baby, Lucky. I started card making when I joined Stampin’ Up! in the spring of 2012 but had to resign due to unforeseen circumstances, I have since rejoined and I’m enjoying every minute of it. When not working on my Stampin’ Up! business, I work for a local motorcycle apparel shop who has been in business for over 30 years. Though I don’t ride, I’ve enjoyed working for the company for over 6 years now.
In my free time, I like to relax and enjoy a good television show or movie on Netflix/Amazon. If I’m not watching the television, I can usually be found on my phone or computer, watching the latest crafty videos or spending too much time on Pinterest; it’s amazing how much time you spend on Pinterest and don’t even know it!
And now here are the projects from Jason and the rest of the Design Team!

Thank you very much to those who participated in our challenge to make a card or other paper-crafted design focusing on the 3 Primary Colors of Red, Blue and Yellow. Thanks and Congratulations 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.
For those of you who are in our “Top 3” each week, we have the code for a blog widget over to the left. Be sure to grab the code if you’d like to announce this on your blog page.

Black and White as a design theme seems to come up a lot these days. While I’m sure we all revel in all the colors that Stampin’ Up! offers in its collections, it’s always fun to see a beautiful project made using just Black and White. We’re not going to go quite that far in this challenge, though. Your challenge this time is to create a Black and White project and add a pop of color for a delightfully artistic look.
Check out our Design Team’s projects for some great ideas. We look forward to seeing what you do with this challenge.
To participate in our challenge, make a card or other paper-crafted project, using Stampin’ Up! products only, 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. If you are linking to a blog, please link to the specific post that contains your project.
PLEASE remember this: We’re looking for projects posted to the internet AFTER July 18, 2016. This is a NEW challenge! AND please mention/link to the SUO Challenge Blog in your post! We’d really like it if you’d mention us early in your blog 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!
