The Blog Hop begins at Zva Creative's blog! Be sure head on over to check it out! Leave a comment there for a chance to win an extra prize package just for visiting the blog and telling us that you stopped by! You will also find a complete list of all the participating blogs there (in case there is a glitch along the way).
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 what you see you can find a list of stores and online retailers that sell Zva HERE.
My colors for the month of May are purple/lavender/grape. I don't normally use these hues, but when I paired it with some beautiful Zva flowers, rhinestones and pearls, it made me think that I should use these shades more often!
I made the shape of my card into the Spellbinder's Fleur De Lis design. I cut out two of the largest die in white paper and tied them together with some Orchid Organdy ribbon. I cut out the next largest design, stamped my sentiment and added the silver cord, Zva paper flower and rhinestone flourishes. I outlined the perimeter with pearl strips and topped off each corner with a single, large pearl. These are the Zva Creative products I used:
PE-02CB-107 (Lines(Pearl)- white (0.3 cm & 0.5 cm)PEB-03CB-109 (Fancy Butterfly Pearl/Crystal - Lavender)
FLBK-03CB-142 (sweet rose (72 stems) 1-3/8" or 35mm - LavenderPEW-03CB-153 (Basic Lines Pearl - lavender (0.8 cm)
If you would like to play along with our design team, 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 designer's 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, May 28th and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, May 29th.
The 5 winners will be announced on Wednesday, May 30th on each of the five winning blogs. The full list will be found on Zva'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 blog post... you do not need to leave a comment on each and every designer's blog post to qualify. However, the more times you comment along the blog hop path, the more chances you will have to win.
We also thought it would be more fun to add even more chances to win our blog hop prize! 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.
*Hop over to Zva's blog and leave a comment there to tell us that you made it there!
