Technique Tuesday + Zva Creative Blog Hop!

Hello!  I am super excited to be a part of the first ever Technique Tuesday and Zva Creative Blog Hop!! More info can be found on the TECHNIQUE TUESDAY BLOG and the ZVA CREATIVE BLOG.
Technique Tuesday  is a manufacturer of top-quality clear stamps, Technique Tiles and other innovative products for paper crafters and scrapbookers. Visit their web site and blog to see their products and find even more ideas for using them.

Zva Creative produces many beautiful color groupings of high quality pearls, flowers and crystal embellishments that can be used on scrapbooking, card making and mixed media projects. You can visit Zva’s gallery or blog for many great project ideas and find a list of stores and online retailers that sell Zva HERE.

This was my first time ever playing with the Zva Creative gems!!  Oh, they are soooo pretty and fun to design with!

Here is my fist card:

I started out with one of the smaller gem clusters, since it was my first time using them!  The butterfly is from the set TAKE FLIGHT, the frame is from SWANKY SENTIMENTS, and the sentiment is from the APRIL GREENHOUSE SOCIETY, all from TECHNIQUE TUESDAY.

My second card:

I was ready to move on to one of the big gem designs!  So pretty!  I again used the butterfly from TAKE FLIGHT, and the sentiment is from SIMPLY YOU, both from TECHNIQUE TUESDAY.

You should have arrived to my blog from WINDY ROBINSON  and your next stop on the hop will be ROBIN SHAKOOR.  

And it just wouldn't be a HOP without prizes!!  
Technique Tuesday will be giving away a $25 gift certificate to TechniqueTuesday.com to one lucky hopper picked at random from the comments during the hop. The winner will be announced on the Technique Tuesday blog.

Zva Creative will be selecting one lucky winner who comments along the blog hop to win a Zva prize package worth $30. All comments must be received by 11:59pm on Tuesday, June 19th. That winner will be announced on Zva’s blog on Wednesday, June 20th at 9 am EST.

Thanks for spending some time with me today!
