Heartwarming Hugs Carol Dennison
Hello Friends,

My dear friend and Stampin' Up! Team member, Carol Dennison of Mansfield, Ohio, has been having loads of fun in her craft space.  Look at all the lovely things that she dreamed up using the Warm Hugs Bundle from the August-December 2020 Stampin' Up! Catalog!

Spa gift Carol Dennison

Carol is especially enjoying the Mini Coffe Carrier.  Here's the beginning of her next project.  What a perfect way to present a spa gift!   Carol advises using the Mini Coffee Carrier, "Don't limit yourself to cups only, try adding muffins or cookies, etc."

Stocking Stuffers by Carol Dennison

Carol was also busy making cute stocking stuffers with her little Mini Coffee Cups and the Warm Hugs stamp set.  Adorable!  Thanks for sharing all your fabulous ideas, Carol!

Quick-Fold Gift Card Holder

Warm & Toasty Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Do you give gift cards for Christmas and other occasions?  If you do you will want to take a closer look at today's simple Quick-Fold Gift Card Holder made with the adorable the Warm & Toasty stamps from Stampin' Up!.  They are oh so easy to make and they are sure to bring a smile.


Warm & Toasty Stampin' Up!

The little singing bunnies in the sleigh (Warm & Toasty stamps) made me think of the stamp that says, "The Best Way to spread Christmas Cheer is singing loud for all to hear" (Christmas Means More Stamps).  What a perfect combination!

How to Make a Gift Card Holder

Make this simple but cute Gift Card Holder with a few quick folds.

Cut a piece of card stock 11" x 4-1/4".  Score at 5-1/2" and 2-1/2".  Punch a half circle centered on the edge of the 2-1/2" section as shown.  This makes it easier to grasp the gift card.  Add a slender bead of glue along both sides of the 2-1/2" section and fold over to form a pocket.

Cut coordinating designer paper to decorate your panels.  I used the festive Tis the Season Designer Paper.

Stamp the bunnies in the sleigh and color with coordinating Stampin' Blends, then cut with Layering Circle Dies.  Using the same dies cut a coordinating scalloped circle as a mat for your bunnies.

See the complete list of card supplies below.
