Make and Take from the Abbotsford Stampin’up Conference

I had the pleasure to be chosen by Stampin’up Canada to be the designer of the make and takes for the Abbotsford Stampin’up Conference, that took place this week-end.  For the Friday night, I was given the “Christmas Bauble” stamp set to use and I was asked to use the Blendabilities markers. Well, that was great because that stamp image  is perfect to color with the Blendabilities!!!

For the Friday Make and Takes, demonstrators made a Shaker Card, a gift Card holder, a mini card and a Gift box.

Make and Take Friday2

Here’s the Shaker Card, which features the Christmas Bauble stamp. The bauble was colored with Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and Crumb Cake blendabilities markers. I used the new Confetti Stars punch to cut the tiny little stars that I put in the center of the ornament to make the shaker frame. The background is embossed with the Lucky Stars embossing folder.

Here’s a close-up of the shaker frame before assembling it behind the Bauble.

They also made a Gift Card holder made with the new Gift Card Envelope & Trims Thinlits Dies.

The gift card holder was make with Cherry Cobbler card stock stamped with the little stars from “Be the Star” stamp set. The front was made with 2 bigger stars cut with the Star Collection Framelits and the tag from “Merry Everything“.

They also made a 3″ x3” mini card. The card was made with Old Olive card stock with some “Watercolor Wonder” Washi tape and Gold Glimmer paper little stars. The “Merry Christmas” was stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with Gold powder.


Last item was a Gift box and tag made with the Gift Box Punch Board and Merry Everything stamp set. The stamp set has a matching “Note tag” punch. Buy them together as a bundle and save 15% on both! A beautiful Cherry Cobbler Sheer Linen ribbon was tied on the box.

A good news I can finally share!

Back in September, I was contacted by Stampin’up Canada to be one of the 4 designers for the Canadian Fall Conferences. I was really honored to be chosen to design the Make and Take projects for the Montreal and Abbotford Conferences. The 2 sets I had to use was the “Christmas Bauble” and the “Ornamental pine” sets.

The Montreal Conference was yesterday and Friday night (Oct.24-25). So the secret’s out! Here’s the Make and Take that they did on the Friday night. Come back tomorrow for the Make and Take they did on the Saturday!

Christmas Bauble projects1

I decided to go with a Silver and Night of Navy color theme. It’s a bit unconventional, but I thought it was different and elegant!

Here’s the card, featuring “Christmas Bauble” stamp, that I colored with the Smoky Slate and Night of Navy Blendabilities markers. In the center of the ornament, I glued a Silver Sequin (from Frosted Sequins) and a small rhinestone. I thought it really completed well the ornament. The Frosted Sequins also have some white beautiful snowflakes that I glued on the card. (Glue dots work best for those sequins!) Behind is a strip of the beautiful foil-embossed “All is Calm” Specialty Designer Series paper.

Here’s the box and Star Decoration topper. The box is made with a 12″ x 12″ Night of Navy card stock, stamped with stars from “Be the Star” stamp set in Silver Metallic ink. The box was made with the new “Gift Box Punch Board“. The gift box band is made from “All is Calm” specialty Designer series paper.

Gift Box

The Star ornament is a Shaker “star” that acts as a Box topper as well as a tag. (Plus, you can keep it as a Christmas decoration!) I used Smoky Slate card stock embossed with the new “Lucky Stars” embossing folder and cut with the Star Framelits. The smaller star is made with Silver foil sheet. The star opening is also cut with the Star Framelits. I used a Shaker frame filled with “Frosted Sequins” and a silver ribbon.  At the back, I added a little tag stamped with “Merry Everything” set and cut with matching “Note tag” punch. (Buy those 2 items as a bundle and save 15% on each!!!)

Star Topper Star Topper back

Lastly is the Tag to complete this set. I used the Scalloped Tag Topper punch and the Merry Everything stamp set. The “Merry Christmas is heat embossed with Silver embossing powder, on Night of Navy card stock. It’s cut using the Note Tag Punch (but I simply cut the rounded part with scissors.) I used the little star from the “Star ornament” opening on the tag and a tiny piece of All is Calm DSP.

Gift Box punch Board #135863 $24.95

Here’s 2 boxes that I created with the Gift Box punch board:

Gift Boxes

The biggest box is an 4″ square and the other is 3.25″ x 1.75″. I used the new “Under the Tree” Specialty Designer Series paper to make the box. This paper is cardstock-weight kraft sheets with color print on one side and white printed pattern on the other. It’s acid free and lignin free.  It’s perfect to make these cute boxes in no time!

I also used the new “Merry Everything” stamp set that coordinates with the Note Tag punch.  Get it as a bundle and save 15% on the stamp set and the punch!

If you want to try this wonderful “Gift Box punch board”, I invite you to my Stamping Club night, Monday September 22, at 7:00pm. Please email me at julie_olivier@hotmail.com to register for the class. (Registrations end on Sept. 19).
