Zva Creative November DT Blog Hop!


Zva Creative and our talented Design Team welcomes you to join us this November for a blog hop that we feel is always extra special because it is the first hop for many of our new 2011-12 team members!  We also thought it would be more fun to add even more chances to win our blog hop prize!  See details below.
 
As you know, Zva offers many beautiful color groupings for pearls, flowers and crystals.  We want to make sure that they shine bright for you, so each designer was asked to share a creation using a specific color or color combination on their blog hop project.  If you like Zva's products you can find a list stores and online retailers that sell Zva HERE.
 
The Blog Hop begins at Windy Robinson's blog. She will have the complete list of all blogs that are participating in case there is a glitch along the way. If you would like to play along, just follow along the blog path.  I am linking to one of the Zva designers and that designer is linking to the next and so on. Be prepared to be inspired along the way!
 
Hidden on FIVE of the blogs is a Zva Creative prize package! Winners will be randomly chosen after the hop is over, so it's important to leave a comment on as many blogs as you can along the way.
 
The Blog Hop starts today, November 28th and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, November 29th.  
The 5 winners will be announced on Wednesday, November 30th on each of the five winning blogs. The full list will be found on Windy Robinson's blog as well. We will do our best to notify each winner, but it's best if you can pop in to all of the blogs once again on Wednesday... plus, you never know what kind of inspirational creation that you may find there.
 
All you need to do is leave a comment on this Zva Blog Hop post...you do not need to leave a comment on each and every designer's blog post to qualify. However, the more times you leave a comment along the blog hop path though, the more chances you will have to be one of the lucky winners.
 
To increase your chances of winning:
* Comment to let us know that you posted on your Facebook page about our hop (link to any of the blog hop posts)
* Comment to let us know that you "tweeted" about our hop (link to any of the blog hop posts)
* Comment to let us know that you asked your local store to carry Zva creative products.  If they already do, that's fantastic, maybe you can suggest other products that they don't carry
So you have FOUR chances on each blog to win one of our FIVE prizes!  That's a lot of chances to win!

Today I'm working with the most gorgeous irridescent jewels. They're so unique and shine in a way photos can't do justice too!

I wanted to create a simple card that really let the jewels stand out, with some simple sponging and stamping I created a one layer card to act as a base for all that sparkle!

I sponged the circle with Antique Linen, Old Paper and Tea Dye distress inks before stamping the snowflakes with Soft Sky and Marina Mist ink from SU. The snowflakes all got a gorgeous Zva Creative center - I've used rhinestones CRW-04CB-123, and a bow in Marina Mist ribbon tops it all off! 

I wish you could see this in real life, those jewels really do make for a simple but elegant Christmas greeting.

If you need to start at the beginning, the blog hop begins here: Windy Robinson.
 
Thank you for joining us!
 
P.S. Next month's blog hop will be happening one week early so mark your calendar to join us on Monday, December 19th for another inspiring Zva blog hop!

 Thanks for stopping by!
