The perfect holder for the perfect gift

Welcome to another Fabulous Friday here at Sisters in Stamping.  This week we are showcasing some great gift card holders.  Afterall, gift cards are marketed as the perfect gift and we thought we needed to show you some festive ways to give those awesome gifts to your loved ones and friends.

First up we have Karla's gift card holder. She used the traditional red and green colors with the Festive & Fun set.  Visit her blog for more information and to see the inside.

Next up, we have Debbie's gift card holder using the Jolliest Time of Year stamp set.  That Santa is so cheerful who wouldn't love to receive their card in it.  Visit Debbie's blog for more information and another picture of the inside.

Then we have Jacque's gift card holder using the awesome stocking die and the Big shot. The use of the patterned paper gives this stocking a whole new look, kind of a vintage looking stocking.  Check out her blog for all the details.

And finally, we have Rachel's gift card holder.  She also used the stocking die and the big shot but she went for a more elegant vintage feel.  Check out her blog for all the details.

Thank you for visiting us this week and be sure to come back next week.  We have so much more to share with all of you.

Terrific Tags!

Happy Friday!  Thanks for joining us for another Fabulous Friday here on Sisters in Stamping!  This week my stamping sisters and I are sharing Christmas tags with you!  Each year I make my own Christmas tags (at least for the most special gifts (okay, now I just realized, I'm going to have to put them on all of my gifts, lest someone think their gift isn't special!).  Here are some samples to inspire you this year to make your own as well!!

My tags are super easy as I used the Two Tags Big Shot die, some scraps of Frostwood Lodge Designer Series Paper, and some embellishments.  If you want to see how I stamped the inside of the tags, you can see a picture on my blog at

These cute tags were created by Rachel Yurkanin.  Quick and simple but still adorable for your last minute tag needs. Visit her blog for more information.

Here is Karla's tag project. There are photos of the tags inside on her blog here:  

Debbie is taking the week off as she has been busy getting ready for a three day show that she has this weekend.  If you're in her area you'll want to stop by and see her!
Since we won't "see" you again until after Thanksgiving, we want to take the opportunity to wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving!  May you have a wonderful day with your family and friends!
Jacque, Rachel, Karla and Debbie!
