Rory’s Lil’ Reindeer Christmas Ornament

Howdy from Oklahoma! It has been a long time for me to be able to post anything, but I am back in my studio and enjoying every minute.

Today I have a very cute Christmas ornament using Rory’s Lil’ Reindeer and some of my on-hand supplies. You can find Rory’s Lil’ Reindeer exclusively at Sweet Pea Stamps in a digital format or as a rubber stamp, which ever media you prefer to work with.

Rory and her little reindeer was printed out on X-press It blending card. After the ink had cured I was ready to color with Copics and white gel pen as accents.

Copics used:
Skin: E000, 00, 04, 11, 21, R20;
Hair: E29, 37, YR25, Y15, 26;
Antlers: E70, 71, 74, 77, 79;
Reindeer and Feedbag: E21, 23, 27;
Clothes & Scarf:
YG03,17,21, 67, and
RV13, 19, 34, 69, and
V01, 05, 06, 09;
Holly: G40, 82, 94, 99;
Basket: E23, 37, YR24, Y26, and
RV13, 19, 34, 69, and
V01, 05, 06, 09;
Shoes: C1, 3, 5, 7, 9;
Background: W00, 0, 1, 2, 3, and
White gel pen.

After the coloring I started the assembly. First I decided that the ornament was going to be oval.
I die cut the image and Fun Stampers Journey Lavender Fusion cardstock with an oval die
My oval die is Spellbinder’s Pierced Ovals from their Celebrations line.

The next steps were to trim with the cotton lace on both pieces, 2 rows of lace per piece.
The Lavender Fusion cardstock oval has a Fun Stampers Journey ATS (Artist Trading Stamps)
Merry Swirl. That stamp was stamped with white pigment ink and white embossing powder.
My gold trim is from the miniature tree section at Hobby Lobby. I always check there because some of those miniature trimmings are perfect for paper crafting. My choice for adhesive is Fun Stampers Journey's Journey Glaze.
Journey Glaze is a dimensional glaze, but quick drying when used an adhesive.
Rory’s Lil’ Reindeer ornament is complete.

 I have tied the ornament on a stand with some gold ribbon. Now it is ready for display.
