Technique Challenge—STC 2517 – Double Pocket Card
The technique challenge this week is the double pocket card. A step-by-step pictorial can be seen by clicking here.
Pin your creation to one of your SUDSOL boards with the tag STC 2517 so I can find it. Don’t have the necessary products? Then find cards on the internet created with this challenge and pin them. If we have at least five samples we can give away one week of free SUDSOL time (time will be added to the winner’s membership).
Do you have it in you to take on this challenge? I hope someone does!
SUDSOL Design Challenge – SDC 462 – 4th of July Card
This week’s challenge is to design a 4th of July card using only current product. This will be a big challenge since Stampin’ Up! retired all star punches and dies but two small ones, the one in the Wood Crate thinlits and one in the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits. Also think about maybe flower dies/stamps that might look like fireworks. You can also use the new Oh My Stars embossing folder.
To start us out, I share this card by Michelle Wright. She used the Timeless Textures stamp set for the flag’s stripes, fussy cut a star mask and then stamped over the mask with Sunshine Sayings ‘splash’ stamp.
I look forward to seeing what you create. Be sure to tag it with SDC462 so we can find it. Then check out what others share by typing SDC462 into the search field.

New PIN to WIN program – Crafting Forever
Get ready for the new PIN to WIN program! Each week I will pick a stamp set to focus on and encourage you to participate by finding samples for this stamp set and pinning them to SUDSOL. This week’s stamp set is: Crafting Forever
Pinning to SUDSOL is super easy (instructions are here)! Just go out and find samples shared on the web with each week's stamp set and pin them to SUDSOL! The samples can even be items you've made yourself if you like! The idea is to have a good selection of samples shared for each week's stamp set so everyone can benefit from the fantastic ideas. What's the WIN part? Well, each week I'll pick a random pin to reward the person who pinned it with a week of free SUDSOL. Play every week and have a chance to get your SUDSOL membership totally free! You get one entry for every new pin you make. Sorry, re-pinning from items already on SUDSOL doesn't count.
Question of the Week
