Nina B Designs 1st Blog Hop with GIVEAWAYS!

Welcome to the first ever Nina B Designs Dream Team Blog Hop! We are so thrilled to have you join us on this very special day. My friends and I have some projects to show you that feature the Nina B Designs' Spellbinders™ Paper Arts (Home Sweet Home and Sewing Elements), The Craft's Meow Stamps, and Want2Scrap bling.   This is the card that I made to share with you today!



To create this card, I used American Crafts cardstock for the base and then cut/embossed a S5-090 Romantic Rectangle from cream cardstock.  I layered Kesi'Arts and October Afternoon pattern paper and sewed them to the rectangle.  Before adhere to the card, I wrapped my ribbon around and tied a bow.

Then I stamped NinaB's gorgeous Sew Lovely stamp set from The Crafter's Meow, colored the dress in with Copic markers and cut it out.  I stamped the sentiment from the same set and cut a banner to adhere to the card.  I added trim, a flower and pearl pin to embellish.  Before adding my dress image to the card, I covered the bottom with glue gloss and added Martha Stewart chunky glitter and then adhered a small pearl flourish from Want2Scrap.  I also added Want2Scrap pearls around the neck line and bow.  Then it was ready for the card!  I  adhered it with foam squares.

Next I cut several layers of dictionary paper with the Spellbinders S5-089 Home Sweet Home die template (heart.)  I sewed the layers together and inked the edges.  Using foam squares, I adhered it beside the dress.

Here are links to all the amazing products that are apart of Nina B Designs collection.  I'm loving each and everyone of them and I'm so thrilled that I get to create with them!
