Technique Tuesday + Zva Creative Blog Hop


Hi everyone.  Today Technique Tuesday is teaming up with Zva Creative for a cross promotion and blog hop.  It is really a treat to get to work with some of their gorgeous gems!  For this first card I paired the Carefree Cosmo stamp set with these pretty blue pearls and then added some blue crystals to the flower center.  I did the watercoloring with a few Distress markers I recently picked up.



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. 

Technique Tuesday  is a manufacturer of top-quality clear stamps, Technique Tiles and other innovative products for paper crafters and scrapbookers. Visit our web site and blog  to see our products and find even more ideas for using them.


Here is one more card



I used this pink pearl flourish along with stamps from Vintage Lace and Swanky Sentiments.

If you are following along on the hop you should have arrived here from Robin's blog.

The next stop on the hop is Lisa Somerville.

If you want to start at the beginning, go to Andrea's blog.

There will be random drawings from the comments for a $25 Technique Tuesday gift certificate and a Package from Zva Creative valued at $30.  Coments must be left by midnight on the 19th and winners will be announced on the 20th on the Zva blog and the Technique Tuesday blog.

Thanks for stopping by.
