Layers of Color's Nina B Designs Release Hop

Thank you for joining us today for the Layers of Color's release of my former Angel Company stamps.
 After TAC closed, I received so many emails inquiring about my designs. I was disappointed when TAC didn't work out, but was encouraged by the response to my stamps there. Even better, I met several new friends who were TAC fans, so not all is lost...not at all! And now some of these TAC stamps can be purchased through Layers of Color. And because the plates are different between two companies (LOC's are bigger), I have added new images to the set that complement the others in each set. It's great to have a second chance at designing the same sets :). I hope you will like them, too.

I have a few photos to share with you today. My first card uses Dotted Dahlias, which was colored with Copics, as the main focal point. I also used the Fairy Wishes set as a background. The sentiment is from the Beautiful Lace set.
Here is the close up of the dahlia. I had so much fun coloring this.

My second card is a little more involved than my usual cards, but I had so much fun putting it together. The butterfly is from Fairy Wishes set. The word "Mom" is from the Sweet Silhouettes set and the "i love you" is from The Love Chapter set.

I also found some burlap fabric to play with and die cut that using Spellbinders Heart Nestabilities. The birdcage is also die cut (links below). The papers are Webster's Pages and the bling is from Want2Scrap.
As with any LOC hop, we also have giveaways! Leave a comment here on this post and tell me which of my new sets do you like the most. I will pick a winner who will receive that set for free. You have till midnight tonight to enter. The winner will be announced tomorrow! I also have a referral contest going on now in my Nina B Designs Facebook page. Refer your friends to like it and I will pick a random winner who, along with his/her referrer, will win one of my LOC Christmas stamps.

 Make sure you stop by the Layers of Color blog for another chance for a giveaway! And here are the DTs' blogs for more inspiration:
