Catalog Christmas Ornament

Hi there!  Hope you've had a wonderful weekend.  Mine improved once I got rid of the migraine!  The weather has been great but I chose to work in the studio today.  (The windows are open and I'm enjoying the fresh air!)  All in all, it's been a pretty productive day.   Thought I'd share my version of the beautiful ornament that graces the cover of the Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog.  There are several video tutorials out there if you want to try to make one yourself.  Linda Heller and Angie Kennedy Juda both have videos - here and here.
Instead of using linen thread, I used some silver filament from my stash. (Yep, contraband!)  The 1-1/4" Silver Glimmer circle creates the base for the button, which sits upon a lollie.  A Silver Glimmer flower from the Itty Bitty punch pack and a pearl give the button some additional bling.  The ornament was actually pretty easy to make - once you get all 40 ornaments cut out!  lol  A strip of the large stamped ornaments and a strip of the small ones placed side by side on the platform/cutting plate was run through the Big Shot at one time.  This was a time saver for sure.

OK, need to finish up a few things before hitting the sack.  Tomorrow is a busy day of errands and grocery shopping.  Thanks for stopping in this evening!
