Sweet Little Christmas Kitty - Stampin' Up! Sweet Little Stockings

   I had my last class of the year last week and we had fun making Christmas cards.  I always preorder way more products than I can ever hope to show to their fullest but I try to use each stamp set at least once in class.  Maybe I need to add a few extra Christmas card classes in next year??

  The Sweet Little Stockings set and matching dies caught my eye not just because of the sweet pets included but also because the little stockings and gifts were just so colorable!  They can be stamped on colored cardstock for a cute look but they really shine when colored with Stampin' Blends markers.  Also, the images aren't so big that it takes forever to color which in a class setting is a good thing too!  But at home stampers can zip through coloring a bunch of images in no time.

  For the class my stampers had a choice of pet to use as well as what colors to use to color them.  It was fun seeing them customize the pets to match their own dog or cat or to make them match the intended recipients pet.

   Some things to note on this card; the embossing is done with the Merry Melody embossing folder which I'm happy to say will be carrying over.   For the holly berries we used the Red Velvet paper which even in small amounts is a really cool element but is not carrying over.

  The Sweet Little Stockings and Stockings dies are on the Last Chance list.  The bundle is not on sale but the Stockings dies are on sale for 50% off on their own so order the dies and stamp set separately and save $10!
