Here are some more Stampin Up! Convention Make ‘n Takes. When you go to Convention Stampin Up! gives you these packets that are filled with the supplies to make a bunch of projects. This year they gave us three stamps sets. The sets were Gorgeous Grunge, Hello, Lovely and Tag It (which is the Ronald McDonald set this year).
This particular Make ‘n Take packet was supposed to be used with the Hello, Lovely stamp set but I added the Gorgeous Grunge set to change it up a bit. When I first saw Gorgeous Grunge in the catalog, it was a set I would never have purchased. It looked like it could be used for a card with road kill on it (a story for another day). Now that I have it, I like it. It is a great set for making “vintage”, ‘messy” cards but it can also be used to make “clean” cards.
This is another Make ‘N Take we did at Convention. It uses a Tag A Bag Gift Box from the annual catalog. They are 6 7/8″ x 2 1/8″ x 2 1/2″ and come with an acetate sleeve to slip over it. They are great for filling with cookies to give away as gifts. They also are a great way to store your Washi Tape because the rolls fit perfectly inside. I used the stamp set called Hello, Lovely to stamp the Thank You and You’re The Best in Calypso Coral and then cut the stamp apart to make two separate ones. I attached the Thank You to the cover on the inside of the box and the You’re The Best Stamp on top of the acetate cover with a Glue Dot. The feathers were made out of card stock and were so easy to make.
This is one of the Make ‘N Takes they gave us to do at Convention. It uses two stamps sets. One is called Gorgeous Grunge. It is a great set for those who like to splatter ink and not have to use a straw or any kind of splatter tool. There are actually three different splatter patterns included with this set. I use two of them in this card. You all know that I am a “clean” stamper but I like the way this card came out using a stamp set I normally would shy away from.
The second stamp set I used is called Hello, Lovely. I used this set to make the arrow (which I cut out by hand) and the sentiment. I really like this set. It has 10 great stamps that can be used with various punches if you want to.
The stamp set called Moving Forward is this year’s Stampin Up’s Ronald McDonald stamp set. For every set purchased, Stampin Up makes a donation to the Ronald McDonald house. It is one of those sets that you may not notice at first because it is on the back cover of the catalog. I remember seeing pictures of cards make with this set and could not figure out where they came from. Once I found it, I had to buy. Not only does it help a good cause but it is cute!
Help the Ronald McDonald House
We used this set at our November Club meeting. I made one card for a boy and one for a girl and let the members choose which one they wanted to make. I sometimes forget that other people do have girls in their lives!
Can Be Used For Either a Boy or a Girl
The card on the left uses Real Red and Pacific Point colors. The card on the right uses Pink Pirouette and Wild Wasabi. The bicycles were punched out using the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch and the larger circle used the 3″ Circle Originals Big Shot die.
I bought this great picture frame holder at Pier One after seeing it on another blog. It holds cards perfectly. All these cards were made using the Mixed Bunch Stamp Set, the Blossom Punch and The Designer Printed Kit called Blossom Builders in the Occasions Mini. Some of these the cards were Make ‘n Takes from the Stampin Up Leadership Conference I went to in San Antonio. The Blossom Builders Kit includes two sheets of the cut out flowers as well as pink rhinestones in two different sizes.
