Explosion Box

Good day everyone. I'm glad you stopped by. I have a house full of sickies!! Katie has viral pneumonia and my hubby has bronchitis. Josh is coughing but that really isn't anything new, he has allergies. I'm hoping everyone will feel better soon, we are travelling to Michigan on Friday for my niece's wedding shower.

Anyway, on to today's post! Bubbles, Bubbles, Bubbles everywhere! I made this explosion box for Magnolia-Licious Birthday Bash! I really liked making this box, I won't kid you it was A LOT of work, but I think it was well worth it and I had so much fun making it! I have posted a lot of pictures but with something like this I thought you needed to see all the angles.


Design papers are The Paper Loft and Imaginesense. Can you see the acetate bubbles?? It's a little hard to see them but I think they turned out kind of cool!

All of the stamps shown can be purchased at Magnolia-Licious. They are all from the Fairytale collections (which I have to say is one of my favorites!).



Finally the inside of the box. Bubbling Tilda is standing on a mound of bubbles and flowers.



Here is the box top and inside together. I really wish you could see the acetate bubbles better, they really make the box.

Here are the copics that I used to color with:

Thanks for popping by today. Hope your day is full of bubbles!!

Hi Lisa,
Your explosion box is so lovely. I love the bubbles done in acetate. Very clever idea. The DP's are super and your coloring is amazing.
I love the way you have colored bubbling Tilda and her wings look awesome. Love it all.
