Welcome to the NinaB Designs‘s 2nd blog hop! We had a great time last month and we just want to thank you for your enthusiasm and encouraging words. The NBD team has new projects to show you today featuring NinaB Designs Spellbinders™ Paper Arts (Home Sweet Home and Sewing Elements), The Craft’s Meow Stamps, and Want2Scrap bling.
We have added a new twist to our hop. Not only do we have tons of inspiration for you, but we also are joining in the Crafty Friends’ challenge that you can participate in. And of course, there will be prizes up for grabs! You will find more info below.
I started out by stamping one of the gorgeous frames from The Craft’s Meow’s Lovely Label 18 in Espresso Colorbox Craft Ink on Kraft cardstock. Once it was dry it was cut and embossed with the largest Label 18 Nestabilities die. A piece of My Mind’s Eye Follow Your Heart Be Happy paper was cut and embossed with a Standard Circle Nestabilities die, sanded and adhered to the center of the label with dimensional adhesive.
Another piece of Be Happy paper was cut and embossed with the dress form die from Sewing Elements. The edges were sanded and the embossed parts colored with Espresso ink. Vellum paper was embossed with the Wing dies from Home Sweet Home and adhered under the dress form. The dress form was taped to the circle layer with dimensional adhesives.
More Be Happy paper was cut and embossed with the second smallest Grand Rectangle Nestabilities die. The edges were sanded and and Classy Corner Bling were added. May Arts ribbon was tied around the layers before the paper was adhered to the card base, white cardstock cut and embossed with a Grand Scallop Rectangle die.The layers were adhered to the card base. A sentiment from The Craft’s Meow’s Sew Lovely stamp set was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed with a tag die from the Home Sweet Home collection. A heart from Sew Lovely was stamped in Tattered Rose Distress Ink. The tag was tied to the ribbon bow with Linen Thread and a button.
