Are you ready for Christmas?  I’m not.  We are in the middle of doing some redecorating – replacing furniture which now includes painting all the walls and replacing the baseboards in the main floor of the house.  So I haven’t even pulled out any Christmas stuff.  Instead I’m trying to find a place to put the stuff that was in/on the furniture I’m getting rid of until the new stuff comes – hopefully before Christmas (but maybe not).   On my card today this little dog is ready for Christmas!


This is the Ready for Christmas bundle in the Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog.  It’s the fun staircase stamp set and coordinating thinlits dies.  Right now you can still purchase as a bundle and save 10%.  In the new year these two will still be available but not as a bundle – only as individual items.

On this card I’ve also used one of the Stampin’ Blends – Bronze color – to color in the little dog.  Oh my he looks so good! It was just the perfect color for him and for the Chocolate Chip Cookies.


The plate and sweater are colored in with Stampin’ Write Markers because the colors I wanted to use don’t come in the Stampin’ Blends.  I did hear that we will be adding more colors in the future!

The little table is stamped on the Wood Textures Designer Paper Stack – since there is all different sheets with different types of wood you could pick what you want for your table.  Then I used the die set to cut it out, and the dog and the cookies.

The Holly Embossing folder was perfect for the background – don’t miss it – it’s in the annual catalog.  And the rug is a strip from the Quilted Christmas Designer Paper Stack.

On the inside of the card (and also on the envelope) I stamped a portion of the Christmas Tree.


This card was part of my November Christmas Stamp-a-stack class.  Everyone that came made 5 of these during the class.

Don’t miss the Year-End Sales Event going on now.  We are saying good-bye to retiring products from the Holiday catalog.  Because once January arrives it will be time for brand new stuff in our Occasions Catalog.


Thanks for stopping by today.
