Gumball Birthday

Mom sent me a box this week which included some wonderful books my grandparents & parents collected during their travels as well as this fun "Goody Goody Gumballs" stamp & die set by Taylored Expressions. I wanted to make the Gumball Machine 3D, so I used the die to cut pop-up layers from foam take-out containers. This worked almost better than regular craft foam, and was certainly easier than using foam tape. The images were stamped on white paper & colored with Copics. The sentiment was stamped on yellow paper, die-cut & backed with more foam, and colored with a Copic & covered in Glossy Accents. The banner is cut from a Washi sheet. The backing DP is from my stash, as are the acrylic embellishments.
