Nina B Designs Blog Hop and a Challenge

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), The Craft's Meow Stamps, and Want2Scrap bling.

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 can participate in. And of course, there will be prizes up for grabs! In addition, I am posting some ATCs for a WORTHWHILE cause. You will find more info below.

I have several projects for you today. First are 2 cards for you today that use Home Sweet Home and Sewing Elements dies. For my first two, I used up scraps of My Mind's Eye papers. I've made similar cards on previous posts, if you want to know how I made these.

I die cut the center the the house body and roof from Home Sweet Home. Here is the negative cut, accented with the heart die cut and Want2Scrap bling.

The sentiments on both cards are from The Craft's Meow's Just Sayin' set.

Here is the positive cut of the house. The border is Spellbinders' Edgeabilities dies.

Some twine and buttons finish the card.

THE CHALLENGE: If you choose to participate in the challenge, create a new project that uses two die cuts. They don't have to come from two different die cut sets. Then, link it to the Crafty Friends' challenge blog. One participant will win the Sewing Elements dies. You can enter as many as you want.

THE RULES: Leave a comment on as many blog hop stops as possible. FOUR commenters left on the NinaB Designs team blogs will be picked to win prizes. One comment per blog please. This is open to our international friends. Here are the links to the NBD team:

My second set of projects includes 3 Artist Trading Cards that I made for Want2Scrap and was posted on their blog yesterday. The W2S team members are donating our projects for an auction to benefit a charity that is very dear to all our hearts. I believe almost all of us have been affected one way or another by cancer and its effects. This is one way we can give back even in a small way. I hope you will check out the Want2Scrap blog for more info and spread the word. Thanks, friends!
