Welcome to the NinaB Designs's 2nd blog hop! We had a great time last month and we just want to thank you for your enthusiasm and encouraging words. The NBD Team has new projects to show you today featuring NinaB Designs Spellbinders™ Paper Arts Home Sweet Home and Sewing Elements die templates. ***This blog hop consists of some awesome prize give aways, so be sure to visit Nina's blog for COMPLETE details or click HERE.
We have added a new twist to our hop. Not only do we have tons of inspiration for you, but we also are joining in the Crafty Friends Challenge that you also may participate in. And of course, there will be prizes up for grabs! You will find COMPLETE info on Nina's blog. The challenge is to create a project featuring at least TWO die cuts ~ they don't have to come from two different die cut sets.
For my project, I created a page in my art journal using a variety of Spellbinders die templates along with fun patterned paper from the Pink Paislee She Art collection. I've combined several techniques that I learned from taking Christy Tomlinson's She Art Workshop.
To create the little houses I used a combined Spellbinders Home Sweet Home designed by Nina :) along with a heart die from the Mix'd Media Elements:
The sun was made using a combination of a Spellbinders Standard Circles SM, Nested Lacey Pennants and Nested Pennants:
and lastly, the butterfly shown below was made using a die from Spellbinders Fanciful Flight:
Here's a photo showing the die templates along with the coordinating die cuts:
Here's to those who would like to know what paint and markers I used on this project:
