LOVIN' NinaB Designs Blog Hop!!

Welcome to the NinaB Designs* first team blog hop of 2013! We hope you have had a relaxing holiday break and ready to join us for another year of inspirations and prizes!
*NinaB Designs is a product designer for a few paper crafting companies including Spellbinders, Want2Scrap and Penny Black, and The Craft's Meow.
For this month's hop, Nina challenged the team to create a project with the LOVE theme, which can be interpreted in many ways: Valentine, Anniversary and Friendship.


To create this card, I embossed the cardstock with a Spellbinder Bricks and Bark M-Bossibilities folder.  After adding a rectangle cardstock and Pink Paislee pattern, I adhered a trim across the midde.  

Next, I stamped the bottom part of the house with black ink and the top with red.  Then I cut them out with the matching dies.  I was actually going to stamp the heart in the center and cut out seperate so that I could pop it with foam dots but after I got my heart die out on the scrap table...it vanished!  Ugh!  LOL  Although I cannot find it anywhere, I know it'll show up.  The nice thing about these house stamps is that you can stamp which ever heart you want right in the center where there is a spot for it.  So I chose the 'Love You' one and stamped it right in the center.  Then I colored the outer frame and added some glitter!

Here are the products I used for my card:

Love Dwells Here
