Cats and dogs are two of my main loves.  Actually most animals make me smile and want to hug them.  So the North Pole Mischief stamp set was an immediate hit with me.  I have shared a couple of cards using the images of the cat.  Today I have used the mischievous pup as well.


Stampin' Up!, North Pole Mischief, Celebrate Everything , Polished Pink, Jackie Beers



I can imagine this cat sitting on top of the gift!  That is an ingrained cat habit to sit in or on a box.  At least it is at my house!  And then all it takes is a little pup to come along and play with the ribbon.  Or it could have been another cat doing the ribbon playing.  But the cat is sitting there planning revenge as the pup is happily playing!  LOL!!!

The adorable image is stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then colored with Stampin’ Blends.  I chose the colors from the paper of course.  The debate was wether or not to color the dog and cat or leave as is.  I think the black sections made when stamping were sufficient for their colors.  Of course that took a bit of thinking on!

Paper and Embellishments

The gorgeous ornament paper is from the celebrate Everything Designer Series Paper.  It is a Host reward and well worth the price!  And as is the norm, all of my colors came from that piece of paper.  I chose to go with a Thick Basic White card base because of all the white in the DSP piece.  But layered a bright Granny Apple Green to pop the colors.  I actually thought ahead about how I was going to finish the card.  When the “package” look was decided, I went with the Polished Pink Open Weave Ribbon.  And that made the ribbon choice in the stamped image so the two coordinate.  With the busy DSP and the fun image, I decided that no other bling was needed.  That is another rare occasion!
