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.

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!!!)

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.

One of the new product that you will soon discover is the Stampin’ Blendabilities markers! These alcohol ink markers are really awesome! They are great for blending and shading, plus they color on plastic surface (like window sheet or even rhinestones)!

Here’s my first attempt with these markers! The flower is also a new stamp called Blended Bloom. Blendabilities markers will be available to purchase at the end of June/beginning of July. The rest of the items in the new catalog will be available to purchase on June 2, 2014.
