Zva Creative December DT Blog Hop!

Zva Creative and the Design Team welcomes you to join us this month for a blog hop that we feel is always extra special!

There is now an added twist to our blog hops, YAY! As you know, Zva offers so 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.

The Blog Hop begins at Kim Hughes' 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 ...YAY! 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, December 27th and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, December 28th and the 5 winners will be announced on Wednesday, December 29th on each of the five winning blogs. The full list will be found on Kim Hughes‘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. 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.

My specific color combination for this blog hop project is red, cream and black. It's one of my favorite combinations. This card features the Double Flourishes Crystal Jet (CR03CA112).



Supplies: Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (Vintage Cream, Pure Poppy) | Clear stamps: Papertrey Ink (Background Basics: Text Style II, Basic Backgrounds: Hearts, Heart Prints) | Ink: Pure Poppy, Smokey Shadow, Vintage Touch Tea Dye Duo, Versafine (Onyx Black) | Button: Papertrey Ink (White & Cream Mix) | Twine: May Arts | Ribbon: Papertrey Ink (Pure Poppy) | Crystal flourish, adhesive dots: Zva Creative (CR03CA112, AD01CB101) | Tools: Papertrey Ink (Limitless Layers: 1-3/4" Circle Collection) | Other: doily

The blog hop begins here: Kim Hughes.

Your next stop on this blog hop is Angelica Franssen.

Thank you SO MUCH for joining us, and have a wonderful day!
