We BEE Stamping Team Blog Hop - Favorite Bundle

Welcome to the We BEE Stamping TEAM Blog Hop and thank you for joining me today.

This month's Blog Hop was a tough one for me.  There are so many great Stampin' Up! bundles in the new Mini Catalog that I had a difficult time choosing my favorite!  I ended up going with the Frosted Gingerbread bundle because the bundle, and the Gingerbread & Peppermint Suite, has so many possibilities.  

This card features the Frosted Gingerbread Stamp set and Gingerbread dies.  The stamp set and dies are offered as a bundle, a 10% savings.

Do you notice anything "different" with the stamped bells?  I inked the stamp with Real Red ink and stamped onto Linen Specialty paper and popped out the image using the Gingerbread dies.  Who knew, right?  The cardbase is Old Olive and coordinates beautifully with the Gingerbread & Peppermint Designer Series Paper.  I added a simple knot bow using the Real Red Mini Ruffled Ribbon.  I love the Sending You Peppermint Kisses greeting. 

Here's a close up shot where you can see the texture of the Linen paper.  I made another card using the ornament stamp.  "Auntie Leigh" will be sending these Christmas cards to her twin great-nieces, Skylar and Riley.

Peppermint kisses are included on the inside of the card using Stampin' Write Markers.

This Gingerbread & Peppermint card appeared on my blog August 10th.  There are no dies to crop the trees from the Gingerbread DSP, but fussy cutting did the trick.

Let's move away from the Folk Art look of this suite and see what else the Gingerbread & Peppermint Suite of products has to offer.  This card is one of my non-traditional Christmas color favorites, at least so far.

I used the snowflake mask from the Adorning Designs Decorative Masks to spritz a Fresh Freesia background on watercolor paper.  The snowflake is from the Gingerbread dies. The Designer Series Paper, Penguin Playmates, is FREE during Sale-a-Bration.
