Easy Gift Wrap Ideas by Stampin’ Up

Today we are going to discuss some easy gift wrap ideas by Stampin’ Up and a big sale! This year things are a little different right? You may be mailing your gifts instead of giving them in person. Or you might need to resort to purchasing gift cards for family and friends because you are limiting the amount of time that you are spending in stores. Or perhaps, you are just running short on time and wrapping paper! Whatever your situation might be, Stampin’ Up can help.

Gift wrap doesn’t need to be boring! We can take the paper, ink, stamps, and dies that we already own to create stunning gift wrap. Also, our family and friends will think that we spent hours coming up with these ideas! 🙂

Adhesive Options

I wanted to clarify that the glue dots I used in today’s video will only provide a temporary hold. They will work just fine for a gift that just lives under your Christmas tree. However, if you are going to be giving this outside of your home, you will need to use something stronger. Seal+ or Tear & Tape would be my recommendation. I would steer away from liquid glue as it will look messy from the underside of the lid on the round tin. Also, it would most likely stain or mar the finish of the gift tins if you use directly on that surface.

Giant Year-End Closeout

Don’t forget our Giant Year-End Closeout sale that starts today! Place your orders early as items are as supplies last! Shipping is not guaranteed before Christmas. But, I feel that if you order today and choose 1 or 2 day shipping, things would probably work out. Take a minute and look over the lists below to see if something you’ve been wanting will be leaving our line.

A greeting card made with Stampin' Up's Curvy Christmas Bundle

It’s A Curvy Christmas

It’s A Curvy Christmas here in Stampin’ Up world! Earlier this week, Stampin’ Up released a new collection of products called the Quite Curvy Variety Bundle. There are swoops and curves and they are so much fun to play with on our cards!

Today’s Video:

Let Me Try To Explain It All

The Quite Curvy Variety Bundle consists of the Classic Christmas Designer Series Paper, the Curvy Christmas stamp set, and the Quite Curvy Bundle. The Quite Curvy Bundle is made up of the Quite Curvy stamp set and the Curvy dies. These two items must be purchased as a bundle. It is so confusing when they name things all so similarly! I hope I can explain this in a way that makes sense! 🙂 The Christmas stamp set and the paper can each be purchased individually. Furthermore, they will only be offered until the end of the year or until the supply runs out. The Quite Curvy stamps and dies must be purchased together. In addition, these two items will be in the upcoming January-June Mini Catalog but Stampin’ Up made the decision to offer it as an early release.

Hopefully these graphics will help you see the different components.

Also, If you want everything you can simply order the Quite Curvy Variety Bundle and save 10%!

Curvy Christmas Cards

I like that can create whimsical, rustic, and elegant cards all with this set. The paper pack is great! The featured colors are Cherry Cobbler, Shaded Spruce, Sahara Sand, and Whisper White. In total, here are a total of eight different prints.

A greeting card on a Whisper White base.  It has Shaded Spruce Designer Series Paper on the front.  It is stamped with a whimsical row of trees.  This card was made using Stampin' Up products.
The top layer of the card that I made with the Shaded Spruce ribbon bow on the front was glued together, stamped, and then embosses using the Subtle embossing folder. I wanted to take a photograph to show you that up close detail. It adds an element of texture to the card. However, it doesn’t show up well on video. Additionally, I love that the embossing mirrors the background pattern of the ribbon used on the card.
