Slide Switch LED Card - Create a Smile Stamps Comeback Party!

Hello everyone,

I´m today over at the Create a Smile Stamps Blog to show you a light up card using some stamps from the new release and the Chibitronics Starter Kit. 

When I first saw the lampion Sets I knew I had to use it for a card that lights up. Long time ago I saw Jessica creating a card with a slider switch and I wanted to recreate it. This was the perfect opinion. 

  • Stamp the mole with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on Copic friendly paper and color him in. I used E42, E44, E82 and E84 and  for the glasses I used B000 and the glas frame R39. Then fuzzy cut the image. 
  • Stamp all the lampion images on your panel in the way you want it to look like later. Then cut the lampions out and ink the panel and the grassy border in using distress inks (chipped saphire, mowed lawn, twisted citron) and distress oxides inks (wilted violet, faded jeans, broken china). At the end just spritz with some glitter spritz over the panel, so it would have a nice shine. 
  • Emboss the lampions on vellum and the sentiment in the card panel. And glue the lampions behind the cut part from the card panel. 
  • You have to create the circuit on the card base. It is a little bit hard to explain written but in the video it is explained in German and linked to the video from Jessica, who explained in English. 
  • To finish the card put everything together and give it a little finishing touch using sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. 

Tipps & Tricks: 

Creating LED cards can be tricky sometimes especially when the circuits are a bit complicated. It is helpful the create a sketch before making the card. 

I hope you found that tutorial helpful and you enjoyed this card. I wish you all a great Create a Smile welcome back event and hope to see you again soon.

  1. Hallo Vanessa!
    Ich hoffe, ich darf auch auf deutsch kommentieren! :-)
    Wow, das ist ja eine schöne (aber aufwändige) Karte! Wahnsinnig toller Effekt! Ich sehe, du hast deine Technik verbessert, indem du schwarzen Farbkarton zwischen die Schichten geklebt hast. So scheint nichts mehr durch. Sehr geschickt!
    Liebe Grüße
