Back with Sunday Suites. Today let’s feature the Gingerbread and Peppermint Suite.

I have to say I don’t like Gingerbread or Peppermint but this suite is cute.

The images in the stamp set, dies, Memories & More Card Pack, and the Designer Series Paper will help you create dozens of intricate “iced cookies” to decorate all your Christmas paper projects. How cute! I could go for these type of Gingerbread.

This suite contains lots of different products not just the bundle and the paper. Let’s check it all out.

Below is the full Gingerbread and Peppermint Suite Collection. ($250 AUD)

It includes:

  • The Frosted Gingerbread Bundle (Stamps and Dies)

  • Real Red 3/8″ (1cm) Mini Ruffled Ribbon

The Gingerbread and Peppermint Memories and More Card Pack can create lots of “Christmas cookie” projects. They can be used for quick card fronts, pocket scrapbooks and so much more. It includes 60 double-sided printed cards with images, sentiments and some foil type elements. And it is only $19.25 AUD. What great value is that!

Add the Gingerbread and Peppermint Memories and More cards and Envelopes. ($17.50) It contains 20 cards and envelopes and will make quick and easy cards with fun elements from the Memories and More Card Pack.

Add real craft “frosting” using the Adorning Designs Decorative Masks ($14 AUD). Create raised backgrounds with Embossing Paste and Palette Knives, or use Classic Ink and sponges to add more colour.

You can see how these are used in the 2 samples below.

Another card to share with you today with the Merriest Moments Bundle. I have been loving these gorgeous stamps and dies. I have showed you a number of cards in the last few posts. (Check back on my blog posts if you have missed them).

Today’s card is a CASE of one shown in the catalogue on p43.

The difference on mine – I added a card mat for the stamping and changed the colours of the Poinsettias. I used Poppy Parade and Cherry Cobbler. I also just stamped by sentiment in Basic Gray ink rather than heat embossing. (OK I was being lazy to get my heat tool and embossing powder out). I think it turned out ok just with that though.

I hope you have managed to grab the Merriest Moments Bundle. It will be great for your Christmas creating.

You can see it in my store now -> HERE. If ordering there please use the Host Code: F4PDXAY7

Or you can contact me directly on 0439 844574.

Don’t miss out on my Added Bonus this month. I’m extending your Sale-A-Bration.

Choose one of my select products as a gift with orders over $90.

Have a great day,

The card in today’s video I showed briefly in the last video 2 weeks ago. I showed 5 ways to use the Merriest Moments Bundle. I shared the cards on other social media channels and had a huge response to this particular card.

I thought I would create a video just on this card particularly with some tips in putting it together. I hope you find it helpful.

Check out the video below.

Note: If you missed the last video on 5 ways with the Merriest Moments bundle be sure to head back a few posts or you can go to to Youtube -> HERE and see it.

The Merriest Moments Bundle is gorgeous and has been very popular. I hope you can grab it for your Christmas creating.

    cards, Challenges, Stampin' Up!


    I have new products …That’s always exciting! 🙂

    To warm up to them I looked up a sketch to play along with. The Inspire.Create.Challenge #095 email arrived in my inbox so thought I would have a go. So I made 2 cards with it.

    This is the sketch. You can find the details on their blog -> HERE.

    These are the cards I created. Both used the upcoming Sweet Stockings Designer Series Paper which you will be able to order from August 3rd. It’s such cute paper!

    That cat doesn’t look too impressed but then how many cats would be impressed with deer antlers on it’s head. 🙂

    The sentiment and santa hat is from the stamp set Sweet Little Stockings. The santa hat was coloured with the Stampin’ Blends.

    This card below I flipped the sketch. The sentiment and the leaf diecut is from the Tidings and Trimmings Bundle which is available now in the Annual catalogue. The shiny ribbon is the Gold Shimmer Ribbon which will be in the Mini Catalogue.

    Simple cards but then what more do you need with this sketch. Let the paper make a statement.

    Speaking of the new Mini Catalogue.

    If you are in Australia and would love a paper copy sent to you then let me know in a comment or email. They are heading out in the mail now.

    Have a great week,

    What more do you need really when you make a card? Some pretty paper and a sentiment.

    The paper from the Dandy Garden Designer Series Paper with lots of fluttering dragonflies makes for a very quick card. I added some strips of the striped paper behind it for added contrast. Just use strips too. Don’t use a whole piece of the paper behind it as it is wasted.

    I added some loops of the Midnight Muse Twine behind the sentiment with a small punched Bumblebee dragonfly.

    The Dandy Garden paper is retiring and leaving VERY SOON. It is reduced too. 🙂

    I have lots of Dandy Garden Suite projects that I haven’t even shared with you. I have one today and will get and share some more very soon.

    Today’s card uses the cute little bees on the Dandy Garden Designer Series Paper. I have to be honest. I am not a huge “bee” fan in terms of paper and stamps. So I wasn’t sure what I would do with this one.

    The Lighting is not great. It was a little overcast when I took this one. It gives you an idea though.

    The card is simple. A strip of the bee print on some white card that I had stamped with the butterflies and then embosses with the Subtles Embossing Folder. I love doing that. It just gives an added texture to your cards.

    Really I don’t use the Gray Granite Shimmer Ribbon that much so it was good to be able to pull it out on this card. It matches it well I think.

    The Dandy Garden Designer Series Paper below.

    The Dragonfly Garden Bundle. It has the matching Dragonfly Punch although I didn’t use it on this particular project.

    We have a new Host Code for March if you order online in my store. (Australian residents only) Or if you need me to place your order for you then you can contact me on 0439 844574.
