Blog Hop

Welcome to the Sparkle N Sprinkle 
Deco Divas - Love is in the Air Blog Hop!

If you arrived from  My Creative Corner - Gerlinde then you are hopping along the blog party trail just fine.  There are four fabulous prizes to be had; to be eligible just start from the beginning at the Sparkle N Sprinkle blog and comment along the way for your chance(s) to win. 

My inner Diva is throwing a Romantic Art Deco party!! The Roaring 1920's were a time of new freedoms in art, dress, design and music. I love Sparkle N Sprinkle South Beach stamp set, it has a great mix of art deco design with a touch of art nouveau, and it makes my heart swoon.

For my first project I made wine glass charms from polymer clay...you don't want to forget which glass is yours!  With all the colors of glitter available at Sparkle N Sprinkle you can invite as many guests as you wish and still let each one have their own unique color.  Using the Palm Border Stamp makes this project easy because with only one stamping you complete 4 charms.  Check out the directions here.
  

Can't let you go home empty handed, so for my second project I made goodie bags. Not able to resist the urge to use an Alphonse Mucha image, it was a great match to the intricate Floral Border stamp.  These are really nice and deeply etched stamps that work well with detail embossing powder . Directions for this project are here .



So now with drink and bag in hand you can hop along to your next destination:


Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to leave a comment to be eligible for the fabulous prizes being given away.

Angie, those wine charms are so precious with just the palm head showing. Using glitters so guests remember "whose is whose" is a marvelous idea! And makes a great gift idea, too. The use of your white detail EP in the gift bag is so pretty! Love your techniques and styles.

A beautiful job and a great way to show the Diva in all of us....

Beautifully created and written. Even though I do not use polymer clay I always appreciate the work that goes into creating with it. I own quite a few one of a kind polymer clay pieces created by great crafters, like yourself.

A French Accent said...

Beautiful Angie! So nice to see you work with different medium. Those charms are just a wonderful idea and the image you embossed looked out of an ancient book. Great job!

aileenf said...

I loved the decoration on the goodie bag, the Mucha image. You mention that it is copyright free. Is there a specific website you use? I love fine art. The side panels were also very fine and worked so well with the image. If you have the time, I would like an answer to my question. My email is danda88@verizon.net. You gave me a new perspective, a new set of possibilities. Thank you very much.

Jann said...

Love the fully functional wine tags. As for the bag front-- that is a true work of art (and love)
