Hi, everyone. I’m super excited to share a card I made for today’s post with you. It features products from both Heffy Doodle and Chibitronics! We were super lucky to be able to team up with the Chibitronics team and make some awesome cards for this hop. You can win a Chibitronics Starter kit and a £50 Heffy Doodle gift certificate! Two winners will be chosen May 6th 🙂 Here’s the fun card I came up with.
I started the card by planning out my circuit. This meant I drew a rough sketch of my card and then started creating the card. I used my Distress Oxide Sprays to create the background. This was fun, and super easy. I just sprayed Worn Lipstick, Spiced Marmalade and Fossilized Amber over an A2 card base and that was it! I let the sprays do there thing, and completely dry before I came back to die cut the hearts from it. Once the hearts were die cut I took a piece of vellum and my Misti and stamped the hearts from Eggcellent News and heat embossed them with white embossing powder. Beneath the hearts is where I put my Chibitronics red light bulbs from the starter kit. The starter kit has everything you need to make your first light up design!
I made sure to get my copper tape circuit right where I needed it to be to get the lights to work, and did a lot of testing before I moved on to make sure I wasn’t going to run into any problems after the card was put together. Then I added foam tape around the battery and card base so as to give the battery room so that the lights weren’t on all the time.
I used the Grassy Lass border dies and Stitched Slopey Joes border dies to create some dimension below the volcano that I stamped from the Geology Rocks stamp set. I also stamped out all of the dinosaurs from the Dino Time stamp set. These cuties just go so well with the volcano-I couldn’t pass up using them to finish my scene!
I also couldn’t resist adding a speech bubble from the Whatcha Sayin stamp set for the T-Rex. Too cute! I finished the card by heat embossing the sentiment “I Lava You” and adhering it to the bottom of the card.
All right! That’s it for my card, but be sure to hop along to the rest of the projects and leave some comments for your chance to win! Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed my project and get inspired to make some cool light up cards 🙂 I’ll see you again soon with another card!

Welcome back! The Your Next Stamp April release is here, and it’s so sweet. We are kicking it off with a blog hop. I had so much fun making the card for today. Let’s get right to it.
I made this card by die cutting the Cool Tags Five dies and creating a spot for the cute little fairy and dragonflies from the Wishing Well Fairy stamp set. I colored in some of the images from the set and arranged them around the tags. I also stamped one of the sentiments from the set on the smaller tags and popped it up with foam tape. I used more of those awesome sparkly gumdrops from the new release! I love that the purple ones actually look like gumdrops! This release is so cute and you’re going to want to see it all.

Hi, everyone! Happy Monday. This week is going to be a busy week for me, so I decided to make an encouragement card for today’s Penguin Palace post. Anyone else needing a little encouragement to get through Monday? Let’s jump in!
I started the card for today by die cutting two of the Cross Stitched and Dots Large and Small die sets. The larger one I die cut from some light gray card stock and the smaller from some white card stock. I love the detail that these dies add to a card. It’s so sweet.
Next I did some creative masking to stamp out the “you are” sentiment from the Get Well Soon stamp set. I love searching other stamp sets to create my own sentiments. To finish the sentiment I die cut some of the Heffy Doodle alphabet dies to spell out “souper” from white card stock. I colored the letters in with my Copic markers for a fun pop of color.
Finally, I stamped out the chef from the It’s Your Day and colored him in with my Copics. I used the coordinating dies to cut him out and popped him onto the card with foam tape. And that finished my card for today! I hope you enjoyed this creation, and that it brightened up your Monday a little 🙂 Thanks so much for stopping by today. I’ll see you again soon with another card!
Hi, crafty friends! II’m back to share a cute spring card with you that I made for the HEffy Doodle blog today. Let’s get started!
I started the card for today by die cutting my sentiment “hello chickie” with the Stitched Alphabet Dies from an A2 size card panel. This took a little maneuvering, just because I only have one of each letter and there are doubles in the sentiment, but it wasn’t too difficult to get the spacing pretty close to even! Once that was die cut I ink blended the front of a card base with Fossilized Amber ink and adhered the panel with the die cut letters over top so that the yellow showed through.
I also ink blended some Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide ink over the corners of the front panel, as well as splattered from of the Distress Oxide spray over it in the same color. Next I moved on to the scene. I die cut a little hill of grass with the Grassy Lass dies from some 110 lb white card stock and ink blended Mowed Lawn and Twstited Citron over it to give it some color. Then I stamped out images from the Eggcellent News stamp set. I colored those images in with my copics, adding some white gel pen details to each of them. Then I die cut them out with coordinating dies!
Finally, I adhered the die cut images to the card and it was complete! This card came together really quickly, and I think you could do a set of them in lots of springy pastel colors! It’d be so cute. Thank you so much for stopping by today! I’ll see you again soon with another card!
Good morning, everyone! Happy Wednesday. I’m back today to share my final My Favorite Things project as a guest designer for their challenge blog! I’m so sad the month is over, but it’s been so much fun getting creative with their sketches.
This sketch was a fun one to end on, and I had the perfect idea for it. I was inspired by the freebie that comes with orders of $60 or more from MFT and the adorable new stamp set Purrfect Friends.
I die cut the tree branch from white card stock and ink blended Stained Walnut Distress Oxide ink on it. I also splattered some of the Stained Walnut ink watered down over it. I also ink blended Broken China Distress Oxide Ink over an A2 size card panel. I splattered some watered down Faded Jeans Distress Oxide over the entire panel. I attached the branch to the card panel using some foam tape once they were both dry.
Next I stamped out three of the birds from the Purrfect Friends and colored them in with my Copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and attached them to the branch with foam tape and some glue. I could resist stamping one of the cats so that it looked as though he was watching the birds from the ground.
Finally, I stamped out one of the sentiments from the new Anything But Basic Encouragement stamp set with VersaMark ink and heat embossed white embossing powder. Then I ink blended some pink ink over it and trimmed it down. It was also attached to the card with some foam tape. And that was it for my card! I hope you like the projects I’ve made for my month as a special guest designer for MFT stamps! I’ve had fun sharing them with you 🙂 Be sure to head over to their challenge blog and see more great inspiration! Thanks for stopping by and I’ll see you again with another card!
Hello, everyone! Happy Monday. I’m back today to share a cute and simple birthday card I made by mixing some new and old Penguin Palace products. Let’s jump right in.
I started by doing some ink blending with a stencil I made using the new It’s Your Day Bubble Call-Out die. Using the negative of the die cut I ink blended some Distress Oxide onto an A2 size card panel. I positioned it so that it hung over the top edge of the panel, and splatterd some water droplets over it for a textured look.
Next I die cut one of the borders from the Fancy Hearts Scalloped Boarders die set to use as a frame on the card. I colored the frame with one of my Copic markers. That piece was adhered to the card panel with a liquid adhesive.
Finally, I stamped and colored one of the adorable unicorns from Birthday Unicorn stamp set. Once it was colored I die cut it out with the coordinating dies and adhered it with some foam tape below the speech bubble. After adding some white gel pen details to the card it was complete! I hope you enjoyed this card I made for today. Be sure to check out all the newly released products from Penguin Palace! Thank you for stopping by today, and I’ll see you again soon with another card!
Hello, crafty friends! I get to share a bonus card with you for Your Next Stamp! I love this new stamp set So Mush Fun, with all the cute little mice and super sweet sentiments! Coloring the images, and coming up with a card design was a breeze 🙂
How sweet is this little mouse on the mushroom? And that sentiment?? So cute. I used a Polaroid die from YNS to frame him, and did some easy ink blending for the picture’s background. Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you’re all having such a great weekend, and I’ll see you again soon with another card!
Hello, everyone and happy Friday! I’m popping in today to share a card I made for the new Your Next Stamp challenge. The new challenge is all about pastels. Here’s my card!
I just had to use the new panel die from the March release along with the So Mush Fun stamp set! I think they’re so darn cute. I ink blended some of my favorite Distress Oxides over top of the panel die (Worn Lipstick, Shaded Lilac and Dried Marigold) and splattered it up. Then I added my die cut pieces over top with foam tape! How much fun is that?? And so springy! Be sure to head over to the Your Next Stamp blog and see the rest of the inspiration form the team. Thanks for stopping by, and I’ll see you again soon with another card!
Hi, everyone! I’m back to share my project for today. I decided it was time to use the Mark My Words bookmark dies. I have a lot of family and friends who I know are going to love getting some adorable bookmarks with these dies! For today’s bookmark I decided to go with a spring/Easter theme.
I started by die cutting three of the same bookmark shapes. There are two designs in the set, but I wanted to use some twine on mine, so I went with the one that had the hole at the top. On one of the bookmarks I ink blended Broken China and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide over it. Then I splattered it with Blueprint Sketch and Milled Lavender Distress Oxide that I’d watered down a little. Over the second book mark I ink blended over the entire die cut piece with some Distress Oxide that I’d mixed myself with reinkers. Finally, for the last bookmark, I used the Grassy Lass Border dies to cut the bottom off. Then I ink blended Twisted Citron and the hand mixed green-ish color I used for the back side. All three pieces were set aside to dry completely while I worked on the other pieces.
I stamped out the bunny and carrots from the Honey Bunny Boo stamp set and colored them in with my Copic markers. Then I die cut them out with the coordinating dies and added some white gel pen details. I adhered the grass bookmark bottom to the blue bookmark, as well as the bunny and carrots. I decided I didn’t like how empty the top was, so I went ahead and die cut some of the Swirly Clouds and adhered them down, trimming off the part that hung over the edge.
For the back of the bookmark I heat embossed a sentiment from Honey Bunny Boo, mixing two of the fonts. I like the way the ‘bunny’ is so big and pretty! I added adhesive only to the top 1/2 inch of the bookmark, so that the two pieces could be sandwiched together and be used like a clamp. To finish off the bookmark I added white dots to the back side, and a dainty twine bow at the hole at the top. And that’s it for my project today! I hope you enjoyed it! I have a feeling this is going to be sent out in an Easter care package to one of my friends 🙂 Thanks so much for stopping by today! I’ll see you again soon with another card!
Hi, everyone! Welcome to my stop on the Pink & Main 5th birthday blog hop!! Who doesn’t love a birthday celebration?? There are so many fun projects and some amazing prizes to be won. But first, let’s get to my card!
I started this card by die cutting the Celebrate die from a piece of A2 size white card stock. I did both the outline and the word celebrate, setting the word aside to use later. Then I got to stamping! I stamped out the four different balloon designs in Pumice Stone, Fossilized Amber, Worn Lipstick and a greenish blue Distress Oxide Ink. The greenish blue ink was one that I created using Distress Oxide reinkers and a custom Distress ink pad. If you haven’t tried that yet, you definitely should!
I let the ink dry completely, helping it along with my heat tool, and then I stamped the cute designs over each balloon in VersaMark ink. I heat embossed them all with white embossing powder. I think the designs for these balloons are SO cute! They add so much character to them, and are such a cute detail. Once that was done, I stamped the balloon tails and some confetti in the open spaces of the card panel. It’s hard to see in the photos, but is a nice subtle finishing touch for the balloons.
To finish my card I put a piece of yellow card stock behind the opening that I die cut and then adhered the ‘celebrate’ die cut to that. I attached the whole panel to a card base and stamped the “let’s” from the Celebrate stamp set to finish the card!
Alright, ready to try your hand at winning some prizes? There are going to be five random winners picked from comments left on each bloggers post. You could win $50 to the Pink & Main store just by leaving some comments!
