MFT & chibitronics Collaboration

Print

Hi friends! This month, My Favorite Things is collaborating with Chibitronics. I had so much fun playing with the Chibi Lights and saw my card light up! The circuit is also really easy to create. Here is what I came up with.

MFT Chibi Light (1)

AmyLee_MFT_Aug_Chibi_Lights (1b)

  1. Blend Grape Jelly, Peach Bellini, In the Buff hybrid inks and Antique Linen ink on the background. Die cut with Die-namics Stars in the Sky – Horizontal. Add ink splatters
  2. Stamp the aliens from Out of This World Stamp Set with Latte hybrid ink. Color with Copic markers. Die cut with coordinating die-namics
  3. The sentiment is silver heat embossed on white card stock, then die cut out with Pierced Traditional Tag STAX
  4. The big star is made with Star STAX Die-namics and colored with Copic marker

That finishes my card front. For my circuit part, I made a simple circuit with one light using the Chibi Lights Kit. I positioned the light directly behind the big star. Here is a picture of how I made my circuit. The battery is placed inside my printing paper switch (bottom right corner). The copper tape is touching both sides of the battery in order to close the circuit, resulting in the light lighting up.

Circuit

To finish, I mounted my card front onto the circuit panel with double layers of foam tape.

MFT Sketch Challenge #294

Hi friends, Happy Hump Day! It is time for me to share my card for My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge #294. Here is the sketch.

MFT_WSC_294

My original plan was to make a bad ass dragon trying to burn down New York city, but this dragon is way too cute and the colors I used are too sweet. So, my card ended up being a cute one :P

Here is how I made my card:

  1. Die cut the New York Skyline, blend with Scattered Straw and Wild Honey, then die cut with Die-namics Wonky Stitched Rectangle STAX
  2. Stamp the dragon and the fire smoke from BB Magical Dragons Stamp Set in black. Watercolor with distress inks. Die cut out with coordinating die-namics
  3. For the sky, blend pink distress inks with a cloud stencil that I made using Die-namics Stitched Cloud Edges
  4. Silver heat emboss the sentiment from the Rainbow Greetings Stamp Set on Wild Wisteria card stock. Then, die cut out using Die-namics Blueprints 27
  5. Lastly, mount everything on the card base and embellish with sequins from PPP
