NinaB Designs Dream Team Blog Hop #2 and Craft Friends Challenge #2


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 have created a wall hanging using the gorgeous NinaB Designs gorgeous Licensed Dies for  Spellbinders™ Paper Arts.


using both the Home Sweet Home and Sewing Elements Dies.  The base for my Wall Hanging is from the Creative Book Pages Grand Template, closely followed by the Grand Labels Eleven


add some divine bling from Want2Scrap - you know it goes hand in hand with Spellbinders Dies - and don't we love that!  My stamped image is one of Nina's Designs for The Craft's Meow 


I have used the Tsukineko Brilliance Ink range for this project and I have to tell you - I am loving the subtle shimmer it has - love this combination of Pearlescent Olive and Pearlescent Rust, along with the added shimmer, it gives such a warmth. THe ink has been added using one of my newest discoveries - the Tsukineko Fantastix - I have always used Blender Pens and have to say...I am very impressed with this alternative.....


Finishing off with some gorgeous crochet lace, large pearls and Mulberry Roses - what do you think?
