Play Date Cafe 109 - Girly Gift Enclosures


Smoky purple, blush and champagne - these are the new colors this week for The Play Date Cafe!  I love how soft they are.

Our sponsor, Sweet Stamp Shop, gifted each of us on the design team with a cute set.  Thank you, Nicole!!  I received  "Hello Beautiful" -

I used the nail polish bottle stamp and created some mini gift enclosures.  My 13 YO used one of them to include with a friend's birthday gift recently.  She gave her friend two Essie nail polishes, Beach Bum Blu and Power Clutch:

Here's the gift enclosure duo --

The card stock base is Blush Blossom from Stampin' Up!, the patterned paper from DCWV's Once Upon A Time.  It had just the right smoky purple swirls on there.


You can see the purple swirls better in this close shot, as well as the shiny layer on the bottles, made with Crystal Effects (SU).  And I just LOOOOVE pearls, so I threw a few on there, too!

Check out the creations made by the rest of our design team at The Play Date Cafe.  They've got lots of Sweet Stamp Shop inspiration brewing for you!

Thanks for coming by today.  :)  I always appreciate your visit!

This is just so cute. What a great gift card to include with that nail polish. Too bad we didn't live closer-there has to be a way to figure out how to make this into like a nail polish holder...hmmm...what fun. Darling!
