About Elite Challenges

Welcome to Elite Challenges.

We are Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrators from the Elite Stampers group. We are all downlines of Angela Sargeant and have gathered together to form this blog.

Here you will find many projects created in response to the challenges posted on this blog. Our hope is to give you inspiration for your stamping and scrapbooking, using products from Stampin’ Up!

Artist: Marelle Taylor

How does this blog work? Challenges are posted to the blog and then members upload their responses in separate posts. Every month three new challenges will be posted, though we can always revist old challenges.

On the right hand side, you will see a heading called CATEGORIES.  Under this heading you will find a drop-down menu with the names of the Challenges. CC stands for Colour Challenge, SC for Sketch Challenge and SSC is Stamp Set Challenge.  Click on a challenge category and you will find all the artwork for that particular challenge.

Below Categories is the TAGS heading. This lists the most used tags on our blog with the most common tags appearing larger. Posts are tagged with the artists name and the stamp sets used. If you are looking for inspiration with a particular stamp set you will get more results with the Tag selection than the Category selection (eg Baroque Motifs is a past Stamp Set Challenge, however it has been used on projects not posted for that challenge, so there are more tag listings for it). In the coming weeks we’ll also include theme tags, so finding inspiration for a specific occasion will be even easier.

If you cannot find a specific stamp set in the Tag section, try the search box below the Tags section. Results will be a summary of the posts, by clicking on a post title you will be able to see the whole post, including image/s.

We hope this makes viewing projects simple for you.  You will also have the ability to comment on individual work.

Check out our personal blogs on the blogroll. If you’d like to know more about Stampin’ Up! and their products, feel free to contact any of us.

Hope you enjoy this site and come back often.
