Getting Ready for the Holidays

I am starting a new series of posts today featuring Stampin' Up product that you can use to get ready for the holidays.

The first post features some holiday ornaments created with the Gift Bow Bigz L Dies.

The ornament may look familiar to you.  It is the actually the same construction as the small pumpkin from a couple weeks ago.  See the Truly Grateful Pumpkins post.  I have replaced the stem with a Candy Dots Brad Base blinged out with a large Basic Jewel Rhinestone and Silver 1/8" ribbon as a hanger.

The angel is very sweet and easy to construct.   I cut 2 Small bow loops and 2 bow tails from Pool Party.  I then stamped the pieces using the Mixed Bunch stamp set with Island Indigo ink.  The halo is punched from Silver Foil Sheet using the 1 3/4" and the 1 1/4" circle punches.  The face is punched from Pink Pirouette using the 1 1/4" circle.  The center piece is Island Indigo cardstock punched with the 7/8" scallop circle and layered with a Frosted Finishes embellishment.

My upline, Dawn Olchefske has a video on her website featuring this project.  Check it out:  Stampin' Up Gift Bow Die Angel
