Day #2 - Ginger Snap Scraps Grand Opening Blog Hop - Wearable Art


Welcome to the Ginger Snap Scraps Grand Opening Blog Hop!  This is Day #2 and we’ve got even more lovely projects to showcase products at Cori’s online shore known as Ginger Snap Scraps located at www.gingersnapscraps.com Please visit Ginger Snap Scraps today and enjoy free shipping on $25 orders to the U.S. and Canada!

If you didn’t hop yesterday, I encourage you to scope out my posting below this one. 

So let’s enjoy a bit of crafty fun with these talented ladies in the line-up!
  

My love of making brooches is well known in my crafty zone – these can be worn on a jacket, blouse, purse, scarf, etc.  I even have customers who like to put them on old lampshades to dress them up.  The possibilities are endless. 

For this brooch I used DCWV Chateau Lavender cardstock (like one of yesterday's pocket cards) – I punched out the blossoms using a SU flower punch, a prima mini rose for the center, and worked some magic piecing together this wearable art.  I've included front and back pics of my wearable art piece.










Also I made a few more pocket cards using DCWV Lace and Linen Stack, La-La Land Marci in two different images, and suitable sentiments by Pink By Design.  The two cards were from one sheet of paper because it's double sided so you can see the economic benefits to employing such paper for several different cards.  For the last one I used Fashionista DCWV cardstock and a Loralie Design Art Stamp, that I embossed and then colored for more of a vintage look (for more info on the pocket cards see Day #1 posting below).
