~ Nina.B.Designs ~ Dream Team Blog Hop

**Winner is MICHELLE! More info on Nina's blog HERE. Thanks everyone who joined in the hop!**

Welcome to the first-ever Nina B Designs Dream Team Blog Hop!

I think I'm just about the only one on Nina's brand new Dream Team that didn't get a post in on the day of the announcement (just like me, yes). But today is the day of the grand blog hop and I can't wait to show my project to you.

This card features the Nina B Designs' Spellbinders™ Paper Arts Home Sweet Home set, as well as The Craft's Meow Stamps Sew Lovely set (I LOVE ME MY CRAFT'S MEOW STAMPS!). Here is my project:

I used Spellbinders Home Sweet Home die set to cut the wings and heart out from patterned paper, did some simple distressing and layered it with foam dots. The wings have a lovely embossed detail on it that doesn't show up on my photo too well, but it's there!


The Craft's Meow Sew Lovely is a new set that was released after my term with the team was over, so it's new for me and I LOVE IT! Nina designed it too... she's awesome!!!!!!!!! I used the sentiment stamp and one of the cute button stamps (in olive green ink, behind the wings).

I also used a mixture of Webster's Pages and BasicGrey patterned paper (mostly scraps from my scrap file), Prima pom-pom trim, Melissa Frances resin keyhole, and some random doilies, trimmings and beading lying on the scramble of my table.

That's my project for today (and I will create more and share soon!), but keep reading!
