I have been exploring the wonders of Pinterest yet again for inspiration - and low and behold inspiration hit me straight between the eyes when I chanced up a gorgeous exploding box complete with nail varnish, by none other than one of my own team.
So Yvonne, it was you who inspired me to come up with this little baby - thank you. With your permission I will add a link to your Pin later.
I used Melon Mambo card stock and Designer Series Paper from the 12 x 12 Designer Series Brights Collection, some Whisper White card stock and Black.
Out came my gorgeous Botanical Builder Framelits Dies and Ribbon Builder Punch too !!
The sentiment inside is from the Cottage Greetings stamp set which I am delighted to say is carrying over into the new annual catalogue which will become available in June. I will be sending a copy free of charge to my customers as soon as I have them to hand.
Whilst this may look like it would be tricky to make, it really isn't. I just needed my trusty Simply Scored and two punches, my 1" Circle Punch and the 1 1/4" Circle Inch Punch to create the holder which the Maybelline Colour Show Nail Varnish fits into perfectly.
I am planning on doing an afternoon workshop where my attendees will create one to take home, complete with Nail Varnish of course !!
Also - Who fancies a give-a-way ? !!!!
All customers who place orders over £25 excluding postage from me during May will be entered into a draw on 1 June. The name which is pulled out will receive a cute Exploding Gift Box and Nail Varnish, together with a Wink of Stella Brush (clear) worth £7.25 and my own retiring Corner Garden beautiful background stamp (which has been slightly used)
