Deco Diva Blog Hop - Love Is In The Air

 Welcome to the Sparkle N Sprinkle Blog Hop - Deco Divas - Love Is In The Air!
If you have arrived here from Shona, you are in the right place.  If not, you might like to start from the Sparkle N Sprinkle blog to become eligible for the four great prizes.  I know you will get some great inspirational ideas along the way.
My first card uses some non-traditional Valentine colors -  and Stamp Set #375 Cocktail Party.   What is a Diva without a gorgeous sparkly evening gown? The dress and oval background is done with Lacy Lilac and Pretty Princess glitter.  I left some white areas in the ruffles of the skirt to give the illusion of lace.    For complete directions, check out the gallery on the Sparkle N Sprinkle website here.


My second card is made with the Heart Cupcakes in the set Love is Sweet (#401).

I used two of my favorites from Sparkle N Sprinkle, Firecracker Red embossing powder and Sparkling Snow glitter.   A little bit of ribbon and some designer paper and you have a yummy looking Valentine! Complete directions can be found here.
Thanks for looking and don't forget to leave a comment to become eligible for a prize.  Now hop on over to Angie and see what great inspirations she has in store for you!

  15. woooo! You drew me right in, Gerlinde, with the fabulous coloring on the flamingo dancer! How EVER did you manage to get those glitters in such tiny little spots? The white areas definitely look like lace. You shaded it perfectly. Truly a work of art! Could your two cards be more different? Both showcase glitters magnificently, but completely different themes! I like the cupcakes a little "off center" like that. They look like they are dancing with the woman above! LOL Thanks for sharing a fabulous work of art.
