I wanted to make a special crafty friend of mine a personalized Puggly Christmas Sweater Ornament. She has two pugs and absolutely adores them just like I love my Biscuit and Bandito.
I won’t re-hash all the how-to’s of easy ways to make front and back images of stamps. HERE is the video where I show everything step by step on an ornament I made of my pups for me and my hubby this year.
For this ornament I used the Maymay Made It Ugly Sweater Weather Stamp Set (reversing the image on my computer for the exact mirror), and this time I used two of the adorable pugs from the Joy Craft Love Dogs Stamp Set.
For the back images (which I realize I should have flipped the boy and girl pugs’ positions), I simply wiped away the ink on their faces and the bottom of the bow before stamping them out so that it would look like the backs of the pugs. Above the pugs I doodled in a little bunch of mistletoe tied and hung up with a red ribbon bow using a Copic Multiliner Pen in a 0.03 pt.
I used the following Copic colors to color up these ornaments:
Sweaters: 0, C00, C0, C2, C3, C5, C7, C8 and 100
Pug bodies: E50, E81, E51, E84, W5 and W7
Pug eyes: E23 and E25
Bows and Mistletoe: $24, R27 and G14
After fussy cutting out both fully colored sweaters, I inked the edges of the cut sweaters with a Tuxedo Black Momento Marker. I glued the two sweaters wrong sides together with some Art Glitter Glue with a fine tip nozzle and then used a 1/8″ McGill hole punch at the top of the sweater turtleneck. To finish it all off, I pushed through the hole a bit of Lawn Fawn Peppermint Baker’s Twine and made a little hanging loop.
The following is a quick video sharing this Puggly Christmas Ornament:
