From Christmas Bells to Wedding Bells

I LOVE when I discover ways to use my Stampin' Up! products in unexpected ways. I especially love discovering ways to use my holiday products year round, not just for the holiday season. In this video, you'll see that I use the Christmas Bells in the Gingerbread Dies collection to make stunning cards for weddings, anniversaries, engagements, and bridal showers. This idea was definitely not something I thought of when I purchased the Frosted Gingerbread Bundle, but I'm so glad it came to me later.


Stampin' Up! Forever Blossoms Stamp Set & Gingerbread  Dies - Mary Knabe

Which is your favorite wedding card, the Basic White or Very Vanilla? Mine is the white one. My daughter Andrea is getting married in June and is wearing white, and the Soft Succulent color of the ribbon on this card is very similar to the color of her bridesmaids' dresses. I think this will be a wonderful wedding or bridal shower card to use for this special event in our family.Stampin' Up! Forever Blossoms Stamp Set & Gingerbread  Dies - Mary Knabe

Gingerbread & Peppermint Card & Gift Bag

I'm so excited to share today's card and gift bag project with you. I absolutely love it. I created this festive card with products from the Gingerbread & Peppermint Suite. Talk about FUN. This suite has it! Traditional bright red and green patterns and a traditional theme of yummy holiday treats - gingerbread and peppermints. Be sure to download the project sheet using the link below for today's Free Friday Download.

As an alternate to mailing this card, you can give it the additional purpose of decorating a gift bag. Card & Gift Bag together, no lost cards or tiny tag. To do this cut a 1 1/2" strip of coordinating color card stock the width of your gift bag. Use a strong adhesive (like Stampin' Seal+ or Tear & Tape) on each end of the strip only to adhere it to the bag. Slip the card over the strip and there you go!
