NinaB Designs November 2012 Blog Hop

Friday, November 16, 2012


Welcome to the November NinaB Designs team blog hop. NinaB Designs is a product designer for a few paper crafting companies including Spellbinders, Want2ScrapPenny Black, and The Craft's Meow. For this month's hop, Nina challenged us to create something with Winter and Holidays in mind.


For my card I combined two gorgeous stamp sets from The Craft's Meow, Season's Greetings and Vintage Ornaments. To create the background I stamped the round ornament from Vintage Ornaments in a repeat pattern using Cherry Red ink. I distressed the edges using Antique Linen Distress Ink. I also used Spiced Marmalade Distress Marker on the edge of the label. 


I really wanted this card to have a nice warm glow, I wasn't sure if the burnt orange and rich red color combo would work but I love how it turned out. Stamping the ornate label from Season's Greetings in the same shade of red really brought the look together. Here are the products I used for my project:
