Global Stampers July 2018: 3D Project

Global Stampers Banner

Hi there,

Our theme for the hop this month is 3D projects & I absolutely love creating these kinds of projects. However, I have to admit that I almost forgot that this was due today, so it was a mad panic to figure out what to make in a short time. I kinda had an idea & hoped it would work out on paper, which doesn’t always happen for me!

Thankfully, it worked & I’m so pleased with how it turned out. Here’s my explosion box featuring the Follow Your Dreams bundle…


The explosion box measures 7cm x 7cm x 7cm and features a watercolour wash background on various areas of the box and the baby wipes technique on some elements on the inside panels.

Here’s what it looks like opened…


It was a lot of fun playing with the 2018 – 2020 In-Colors to create this project. Can you tell I really love these new colours? I just can’t stop creating with them!  😀

Let’s take a closer look at the individual elements, starting with the lid of the box…


I think the rainbow colours are perfect for the word ‘dream’.

Now let’s take a look at the inside of the box lid that has a dream catcher hanging from it…


I love how this rainbow dream catcher turned out. It is my favourite element in this project. I added some Fine-Tip Glue Pen to create the shine on it.

Now for the inside of the explosion box…

GSJUL18 3D Follow Your Dreams Explosion Box inside panels

There’s a lot of bright colours on the inside and I love how the black centre panel helps bring them all together & almost softens them a little. The flower crown images were stamped using the baby wipe technique. I coloured over them with my aqua painter to create that rainbow water coloured look.

And now for the final elements, the mini tags that fit inside the pocket panels…


I kept the tags simple for writing little messages of inspiration to the recipient.

I hope you enjoyed this project today. Please hop along to see the other amazing projects & be inspired to create your own 3D project.
