Explosion Box and a new Baby

This is the explosion box I did for stamp camp on Saturday. I used my new Big Blooms set and Bashful Blue and Elegant Eggplant cardstock and inks. The flower on top was stamped in both colors and cut out so that the eggplant center is popped up and then I used the 1/4" circle punch for a bashful blue center.

For the 3 flowers on the outside of the box I didn't want the inside of the fold to be stamped so I used "Post-it notes" to mask off the folded part. You can kind of see it in the 2nd picture. For directions for the explosion box click HERE .

Last night we went up to the neighbor's farm to see the new baby horse. He is only about 12 hours old in this picture. It was so cute to see him wobbling around. His name is Charger. Isn't he just too cute?!?

Is the box something you designed or can you buy them from SU? I love the colors!! Nicky and Time had three baby horses born last spring...They are amazing! They take no time at all and they are walking right along side their mom.How was your visit with Amy?
