each designer was will be sharing a creation using a specific color or
color combination on their blog hop project. If you like what you see

I used my Swirlydoos June kit Antiquities to create this layout. With the addition of the beautiful flowers and bling from Zva Creative, how could you go wrong. Everything but the Zva products on this layout is in the main and embellishment kits, with the exception of the doily behind the pic. Krissy does a bang up job in creating these wonderful kits!! She sure knows how to coordinate beautiful product.
I nestled the beautiful Zva Blue roses among my hand made flowers. The large one is 1.5" graceful roses -Blue -[FL-04CA-133]
The smaller ones are mini rose (144 stems) -1/2" or 12mm - soft blue [FLBK-03CB-109
For the handmade flowers I used Spellbinders Grand Peony die to create them. A single layer. I topped them off with the gorgeous gold netting trim from "Antiquities" and placed one of the wonderful Bo Bunny brads in the middle. Then I used the gold Distress Crackle paint to kiss the edges of the petals.
This is a sneak of a line Zva Creative will be unveiling at CHA next month!! Zva sent me samples of 3 colors to work with. The blue is just stunning. I don't have a product number yet for them as they haven't been released, but you're going to love the new line!! If you are familiar with Zva Bling, you know just how much it makes your projects pop off the page!!
Just a closer look at the beautiful blue flourish. I created a File of the Butterflies for Swirlydoos
for one of our past kits and you can find them by clicking on the link. I added some sparkly Stickles in Icicle to the wings, then covered it with Glossy Accents.I always cut out antennae while I'm cutting out the butterfly, then color them with a black Sharpie, but you could use wire to create them. The doily in the back ground is from Wiltons. You know, the kind you use for cakes!! I have had 4 bottles of Walnut ink that I never use, well I broke out one bottle, and I love the chocolate color effect..Gorgeous.
Just another closeup of the flowers, The Zva tiny roses and buds are perfect to fill in your floral sprays. They add the perfect touch. The leaves were stamped on card stock from the Swirlydoos add on Card Stock kit using one of all time fave Heartfelt Creations
stamps. I think the stamp is retired now...I cut the leaves out, sprayed them with Glimmer Mist in Olive Vine and touched them up a bit with Suede. I wrinkled distress them a bit while slightly damp for texture.
The letters are actually stickers from the embellishment kit. I have a great tutorial on how to make them look like real scrabble tiles.The little tiles were perfect for journaling.
Here is a close up of the butterfly and flower.
