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 couldn’t help myself. For my card I used a new M-Bossabilities folder as well as  Scalloped Border dies from the new Spellbinders Winter CHA release. I know, I am a lucky one to have them already. A little birdie told me that Nina designed those border dies.
I started by scoring a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock at 3 1/2″ and 7″.  Next I used three dies from the A 2 Scalloped Border One Spellbinders™ Borderabilities® Card Creator dies to cut and emboss the 1 1/2″ edge of the tri-fold.  The other outer panel was embossed with the new Spellbinders™Infinity M-Bossabilities™ folder.
A sentiment from The Craft’s Meow Sent with Love was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock that had been cut and embossed with the 3rd smallest of the Classic Oval SM Nestabilities® dies. It was adhered to black cardstock cut and embossed with one of the Fancy Tags Three dies. A piece of a Beautiful Bloom Bling Border was adhered under the sentiment and flowers were threaded through one of the tag holes and adhered on the back.
The sentiment panel was adhered slightly over the scallop border side to close the card. A piece of a Finesse Rhinestone swirl finish off the card. I picked the black and white (with a splash of pink) color scheme to make the card work for the current Simon Says Stamp Challenge.

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

Prize Package #1 includes Spellbinders Venetian Accents and Motifs:
