NinaB Designs November Blog Hop

Welcome to the monthly 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, I challenged the team to create something with Winter and Holidays in mind.

The holidays provide many opportunities for paper crafters to give an extra personal touch to every occasion.  Whether you are doing place cards for a dinner, tags for gift giving or even just hand made projects using your supplies on hand, it is a blessed season indeed!

I used a lot of scrap papers for my projects today. That is one advantage of using dies.:) My first card uses my Sweet Folk Art dies with Simple Stories and My Mind's Eye papers.
Angel
I used felt for the hair/halo and the heart.Using my white pen, I connected the holes on the wings to make them look stitched. All the dies in this set have the holes for a quilted/stitched look. The sentiment is TCM's Season's Greetings.
Angel-det
My second card is a winter scene using my Home Sweet Home and Sweet Folk Art dies (heart banner). Again these were die cut using My Mind's Eye scraps. I hand cut the snow drift.
All-is-Calm
The background snowflake is Madison Paper pack by Penny Black.The sentimet is from All is Bright stamp set, also by Penny Black.

Here are the products I used for my project:
