Nina B Designs Dream Team

March 9, 2012

Happy Friday, everyone!  I said in my post yesterday that I have some fun news to share, and I am here today to share it with you!!  My crafting friend, Nina Brackett, has asked me to be part of her Dream Team!  Nina designs stamps for The Craft's Meow, diecut sets for Spellbinders, and bling stickers for Want 2 Scrap.  Nina decided that she needed a group of crafters to showcase her product each month, and thus- the Dream Team was born!  I am super excited to be part of her team, and use all of her fabulous product!!

In celebration of the announcement, I have created a card using one of Nina's stamp sets designed for The Craft's Meow.  Here is what I created!
  "A Special Note" supplies:
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics
Paper/Twine: My Mind's Eye (Lost & Found 2 "Breeze" 6x6 paper pad) 
Doily: Wilton
Stamps: The Craft's Meow (Sent with Love set)
Ink: Clearsnap (Chalk: blue lagoon & Stephanie Bernard Dye: chocolate)
Distress Ink/Blending Tool: Tim Holtz (antique linen)
Button: American Crafts
Jewels: Doodlebug Designs
Ribbon: May Arts
Dies: WPlus9 (Label Layers 1 & Timeless Tags)
Diecut Machine: Cuttlebug by Provo Craft

Instructions:  Make card from orange cardstock.  Cut ledger paper slightly smaller, and distress ink the edges.  Distress ink a white doily, and adhere folded in half over the top of the ledger paper block.  Wrap ribbon around the left side of the paper block, then adhere the entire block to the card front.  Fussy cut the banner from patterned paper, distress ink the edges and adhere to the card front.  Diecut the label and tag from patterned papers and distress ink the edges.  Stamp the image & sentiment to the tag, and adhere to the label cut using foam adhesive.  Tie a double bow from twine, thread a button around the middle and adhere it to the tag top.  Adhere the entire sentiment block to the top of the card.  Add jewels to the bottom side of the banner to finish.

Well, that is everything that I have to share with you today! I hope that you have a wonderful rest of your Friday, and a great start to your weekend!! ♥♥♥
