Part 2: Make and Takes from Montreal Stampin’up Conference

For the Saturday’s Make and Takes, I was given the “Ornamental Pine” stamp set to use as the main stamp set. I was really happy because I love this set! Here’s the projects that I designed for the other demonstrators to make: one card, 2 mini-cards and a box (the cards fit in the box) and a Gift Card holder.

Here’s the card, made with the Ornamental Pine stamp set. The little ink splatters are from a stamp in “Gorgeous Grunge” stamp set and I used Gold Metallic ink. I also added Dazzling Diamond glitters on the pine cone, to mimic snow (use 2-Way glue to stick it, it dries instantly and hold well.) A 1/8″ Gold ribbon complete the card perfectly! This card has lots of “Bling” but the picture doesn’t really do justice…

The 2 mini-cards were 3″ x 3″. The Designer Paper in the background is from the “Trim a Tree” Designer Series Paper stack. I wanted to make a poinsettia, so I used the Petite Petal punch (2 flowers, on top of each other) and I used the Gold Stampin’ Dazzle Marker (love that pen!) to make the flower center. The “Merry Christmas” is from “Merry Everything” stamp set, cut with the Note Tag punch. (Get these 2 items 15% off when you buy this bundle).


For this one, I used the words from Ornamental Pine, heat embossed in Gold on Early Espresso card stock. A little Gold Glimmer paper star complete the card.

The Gift Card holder was cut with the new Gift Card Envelope & Trims Thinlits Dies. I used Garden Green card stock that I embossed with the Lucky Stars embossing folder. The Christmas ornament is also from the Ornamental Pine stamp set. I used the Daffodil Delight and Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities Markers to color it. The tag is from Merry Everything stamp set and cut with the matching Note Tag punch.

Finally, here’s the box made with the Gift Box Punch Board. I used the “Under the Tree Specialty Designer series paper . This is Cardstock-weight sheets with color print on one side and White printed patterns on the other. It’s perfect to make little cute boxes in no time! A Cherry Cobbler 1″ Sheer Linen ribbon is tied to the box.
