Christmas Stockings Ornament with Deb Riddell

Hello everyone and thank you for stopping by at this very busy time of the year.  It’s Deb Riddell here with you today and I have a quick and easy Christmas ornament to share with you created with Southern Ridge Trading Company’s Ribbon Bows, Merry Christmas Greeting Pack and Christmas Stockings.

For the base of my ornament I used Eileen Hull’s Embroidery Hoop die, cutting it once form white Little Sizzles Mat Board and twice from some Carta Bella ‘A Very Merry Christmas’ scrapbook paper.

The front of the mat board die cut was covered with the Night Before Christmas paper;

And the back of the mat board embroidery hoop covered with the blue snowflake paper.

Southern Ridge’s Ribbon Bow was painted with gold metallic paint and then embossed with gold embossing powder, this powder from my stash has flecks of green and red in it so perfect for the Christmas season.

One of the sentiments from the Merry Christmas Greeting Pack was painted with dark green acrylic paint and then Deco Foil Adhesive was applied over the entire piece.  Once the adhesive was dry and tacky, green Deco Foil was burnished overtop of the Merry Christmas sentiment.

Three of those adorable little Christmas Stockings were painted with gold and silver metallic paints and once the paint had dried they were embossed with Emerald Creek Craft Supplies Iridescent Shimmer embossing powder for a little more sparkle (‘cause you can never have enough sparkle at Christmas time!).

All of the Southern Ridge chipboard embellishments were going on the front of the ornament so I stamped and embossed one of Tim Holtz’s Swirly Snowflakes stamps with some blue shimmer embossing powder from my stash to decorate the back of the ornament.  I die cut the embossed snowflake with the coordinating die from Sizzix and then popped it up on some 3D Zots Singles adhesive dots.

And then I just layered all of the chipboard onto the front of the ornament, the embossed Ribbon Bow was adhered at the top:

The foiled Merry Christmas sentiment was adhered on the tails of the Ribbon Bow:

And finally the three little embossed stockings were tied onto the Merry Christmas sentiment with some button thread coloured with green Distress ink.  There was a bit of bare spot between the second and third stockings so I quickly die cut a Mini Paper Snowflake from some Deco Foil Toner Sheet I had in my stash that I think was covered with Rebekah Meier Designs Vintage Tin Mixed Media Transfer Foil.  A ribbon hanger was added to the embroidery hoop and the ornament was complete.

I hope that you’ve enjoyed seeing how my Christmas Stockings ornament came together, it would make a quick and easy last minute gift.
