Chibitronics and Newtons Nook Collaboration Blog Hop

Hello friends, 

today is a very special day. I´m part of Newton´s Nook and Chibitronics collaboration Blog Hop. Since monday both design teams are showcasing their projects. For my projects I´ve used the holiday smooches Stamp set and the Chibitronics Starter Kit.

This set of three cards is pretty much clean and simple. Normally my cards are very complex, but this time I wanted to focus on the kissing couples. This is why the lightning is in the background. I had this idea in my mind with the couples in a cold night sky. And I´m really happy how the cards turned out. Creating this card was really easy; I´ll give you here a little instruction. If you want to know more please watch the video I´ve created for you!

Disclaimer: All supplies I´ve used are listend and linked below this blog post!
  • Stamp images (from Holiday Smooches stamp set) on white paper using an alcohol friendly ink and color the images with Copic Marker. Subsequently fuzzy cut the image
  • Create the background: I´ve used the Gansei Tambi watercolors on Bristol paper. I applied the color doing swirly motions with my paint brush. I did a second layer and let the first layer dry before applying the second. At the and I flicked white paint on top of the background to create the stars
  • Die cut the background using a circle die. And die cut a circle which is one number smaller from the card panel. This step isn´t needed but I liked it to hide the thickness of the card.
  • Poke wholes in the night sky background where the light will shine trough. Then dray on the card base where the LED will be. 
  • Create the circuit using copper tape, battery and the LED (all included in the Chibitronics Starter Kit)
  • Put the card together using different layers of foam tape. Behind the night sky background is a tripple layer; behind my card panel is one layer; between card panel and background is a double layer
  • Heat set the sentiment: stamp the sentiment using VersaMark ink and white embossing powder on a black strip of cardstock.
  • Apply a note on the card, so the recipient will now what to do so the light will shine. I´ve used the push here stamp set from Lawn Fawn. 
  • Finish the card scattering some sequins over the card
  • Now the card is all. Happy shining :)
