NinaB Designs April Blog Hop

***This post is a sticky and will remain at the top until April 22
For new posts please scroll down! ***


Welcome to the NinaB Designs Blog Hop! The theme of this month's Hop is Stamping Techniques. Nina challenged the team to do a technique, which could be as simple as coloring, die-cutting or more involved like emboss resist, making your own embellishments, etc. If you have arrived from Lea Lawson's Blog, you are in the right place!



I have used the Sew Lovely stamp set, designed by NinaB Designs for The Craft's Meow and have used the Emboss Resist Technique - this is one of my favourite techniques, along with Die Cutting and Stenciling.



I have stamped the image using Imagine Crafts/ Tsukineko VersaMagic - Cloud White Ink and embossed using White Embossing Powder and a Heat Tool.  I have then sponged the image using VersaMagic - Pixie Dust and Versafine - Vintage Sepia

It has then been cut out using the Spellbinders Grand Calibur® Machine
 and Labels Eight Nestabilities® then mounted onto the Decorative Labels Eight Nestabilities® using foam tape.




The button image has been cut out using the Standard Circles LG Nestabilities®
 Want2Scrap©  Self Adhesive Pearls have been added around the edge of the circle and a button glued to the center to create a unique embellishment.   This is added on top of vintage lace and a border of  Want2Scrap© - Beautiful Bling Borders-Fancy Waves! by Nina Brackett.  Finishing off with a Mulberry Rose and some floral touches from my stash.




The NinaB Designs team is giving away these TWO PRIZE PACKAGES:
