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:

Awww thanks so much Barbara!
Love how you did the front and back. The looks on the little pug faces made me laugh. =)
Awww thanks so much Jessica! Yes, those little pug faces are so cute!
This is FABULOUS and SO creative. I hate to use that term “Ugly Sweater”, but it reminds me of the “Ugly Sweater” parties people have at Christmas time. If this were a sweater, I would understand….but it’s an ADORABLE piece of art, and I could never say that about this sweet creation. I hope you know what I mean….LOL You are SO creative, and this is such a fabulous idea. I also love how the back is done so perfectly as well. Super creative and really just an AWESOME project. Thanks SO MUCH for sharing it with us.
