Hello Paper Crafters!

Here is my first Christmas project for you. I have always liked the idea of using an embroidery hoop to make a Christmas Ornament. Cardinals are one of my favorite birds and I love Poinsettias for Christmas. So, I combined the Toile Christmas and Poinsettia Petals stamp sets and coordinating dies to make this ornament with classic red and green Christmas colors. I also incorporated a piece of Feels Like Frost DSP. The reds really pop against the blue and white DSP.

Step 1:

Cut your pieces.

  • Position the embroidery hoop on the DSP in the desired location and trace around the hoop. Cut out the circle.
  • Poinsettia: Use the smaller flower with the nesting embossing die and cut 2 from the Cherry Cobbler CS.

  • Gold Foil: Cut 1 of the flower centers from the Gold Foil.
  • Real Red Sheer Ribbon: 20”
  • Real Red Braided Lined Trim: 10”

Step 2:

Stamp your images.

  • Cardinal: Stamp the cardinal onto Real Red CS with Memento ink. I used my Stamparatus because the cardinal needs to be stamped twice to get a good image. Use the die to cut out.
  • Branch & Leaves: Stamp 1 branch, 1 larger leaf and 2 smaller leaves onto Shaded Spruce CS with Memento ink. Use dies to cut out.

  • Sentiment: Stamp the sentiment onto Real Red CS with VersaMark ink. Sprinkle with White Embossing Powder and heat emboss. Use the die to cut out.

Step 3:

Color images.

  • Beak: Stamp the head of the cardinal onto a scrap of Pumpkin Pie CS. Fussy cut the beak and color with the Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends to tone the color down a bit. Use a little Multipurpose Glue to attach to the cardinal.

Step 4:

Putting it all together.

  • Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to attach the DSP to the back of the hoop.
  • Paint the embossed veins with watered down gold paint. Use Mini Glue Dots to put the flower together.

  • Loop the trim around the screw and tie. Place the knot in the space between the screw and the hoop. Use a little hot glue to glue in place.

                         

  • Tie a double bow with the sheer ribbon. Attach to the hoop with hot glue.
