If I purchase a program that has graphics in it can I print those graphics for my craft projects and sell them? Can I purchas wrapping paper, cards,  fabric or other paper with designs on it make, a craft with it and sell it?

I'll address part II.
 
Yes to the use of fabric, wrapping paper, cards.  However, you can't copy the design on the paper/cards and reproduce them and use those.
 
I also humbly suggest the use of a disclaimer.  
 
"This is not a licensed product although it has been made from licensed material from so and so and I am not affiliated with nor sponsored by so and so"
 
Having said all that, although you are protected under First Sale and Fair Use Doctrines that doesn't stop the rights holder from trying to bully you.

I guess I should have made myself more clear. If I purchase wrapping, card or fabric can I cut that design out, glue it to something else and sell it?

I don't see why not, but with the caveat of using a disclaimer.  And of using the actual paper, not making a copy.
 
I use fabric on the badge-a-minit stuff and make magnets.  I would think the same would apply to the wrapping paper.
 
But, I've been within the law on things I've done and companies like Disney, Major League Baseball Properties and United Media have made me prove it in court.  Good thing for me I can represent myself.
 
I would be iffy on using software to print out things and using those.

Dear JennL,
 
I would want to know what the terms of purchase are and the Copyright status and instructions of what you have bought.
