Chibitronics is SO cool! To create my card I started with lots of fun Avery Elle products! I stamped and colored Caroling Critters first. Then blending the sky with Distress Ink using the Falling Snow die to cut out sky (that will later light up!). Next I stamped the sentiment from the Comfort and Joy stamp set.

Once the front of the card was complete I was ready to work on the lights behind them!

To set up my lights I placed the battery behind the "bright" word of the sentiment, then placed the three lights in a row on the horizon of the scene. This will make the whole sky glow! TIP: I didn't want the animals to glow so I placed black cardstock behind them to block the light. TIP 2: I put a piece of copy paper behind my die cut hole to hind any copper tape and to diffuse the light. 

Finally, it was time to put it all together and light up the card! The lights are amazing! The glow is super cool! 

Enjoy the rest of the hop!

Christmas caroling is one of the best activities to do in December! I've loved every time I've done it... even if it was very cold and windy the last time I went. :) I love your design which pays tribute to this fun time. Your critters and background are colored perfectly and then the chibitronics add another fun element of light! Great card!

Ellen Hutson & Avery Elle Blog Hop!

Hi Everyone! I'm SO excited for today's blog hop! This collaboration set is amazing and I can't wait to see how all of the talented designers used it today and how YOU will use it! To create my card I started by stamping, die cutting and coloring several of the images from Peek a Boo Pals Camp Wanna Stamp (love that name!). It's available HERE with stamps and dies or HERE with just stamps.  Next, I blended and splashed ink on a piece of cardstock to create the background. Then, I stamped the lightening bugs and added their glow, along with coloring their wings white. TIP: I used a Q-Tip to add just a small amount of Distress Oxide to make the bugs glow.  Finally, I added the sentiment and adhered everything to a card base. This set is amazing and it's PACKED full of images! There are still more images that I can't wait to stamp. Check out the set... Next up is Heather Campbell . She is SO talented, I'm sure you'll love what she created. Finally, it wou

Mama Elephant: October Anniversary Stampede!

It's Mama Elephant Birthday Stampede time!  This is so awesome, right? I'm so excited you've joined me from Stephanie's blog! Today I'm a sharing a lot of stamping goodness! Now that I'm counting, my card uses 4 new Mama Elephant stamp sets ! This card all started with the sentiment. My kids are always buzzing around the house singing and one of their favorite is Everything is Awesome (Lego Movie anyone?). :) I started with a faint pencil line to create AWESOME from the new Block Party Letters . I colored them in with Copics and then did some creative masking and stamping from Happy Everything to add the beginning of the sentiment. Next I stamped the penguin and hat (from the new Artic Penguins ), colored them and die cut them for a perfect cut. The soft, grey striped background was created using the new Boutique Borders . All stamps and dies can be purchased NOW at the Mama Elephant store HERE . Next up? The very talented JJ Bolton !
