NinaB Designs January Blog Hop

*** This post will stay at the top until the end of the Blog Hop
Please scroll down for new posts ***



  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. 




I have created a set of cards, including a birthday card -  LOVE is not just limited to Valentine's - we all love to show it in many ways during the year, sometimes for no reason at all - spontaneous...




For my sets of cards I have used Nina's set  TCM Flower Garden Stamp, cutting the flowers out and popping them up on foam tape for some added dimension.  I have also used  Spellbinders™ Wavy Rectangles  Nestabilities® and Classic Ovals LG   Nestabilities®, the sentiment from the TCM Sew Happy stamp set is cut out using the Ribbon Banners Shapeabilities.  My bling is from Want2Scrap



For my second card I have layered the flowers into Romantic Rectangles Nestabilities® and Fancy Tags Three  Shapeabilities®



My final card has a  flower layered onto Floral Ovals Nestabilities® and Grommet Tags Shapeabilities® All of my bling is from Want2Scrap
 

Here are the products I used for my cards:
