World Card Making Day | Chibitronics & Honey Bee Stamps Collaboration Project!



Welcome and Happy Card Making Day!!!

I had so much fun playing with the Chibitronics Starter Kit and my Honey Bee Stamps




I started this card by first stamping the snowman and little bird from the Let It Snow Stamp Set. It's stamped on both Bristol Smooth Card Stock for the scene and masking paper. I fussy cut the images on the masking paper and adhered them over the images on the card stock. Using a set of hill dies, I cut the hill from masking paper as well. Once all of the masks were in place I began to blend Distress Oxide Inks to create the background. The first color (just around the snowman's heart) is Fossilized Amber. Next is Antique Linen. Did you know that Antique Linen doesn't turn green when mixed with the blue shades??? Me neither until a super sweet friend told me to try it out! I was able to create the warm glow around my snowman without the greenish tone. Score!!  The next colors radiating out from the snowman are Broken China, Faded Jeans, Wilted Violet and Black Soot. 



After the oxide ink blending, I gently pulled off the masks. I did some super simple Copic coloring of the snowman, bird, and snowy hill. For the falling snow, I used a white gel pen.....soooo easy! I also sprayed a tiny bit of shimmer mist over the project, which is really hard to capture in photos. In "real life" is is super glittery and beautiful. I used a heart die found in the Coffee Break Die Set to die cut the area for the snowman's heart. I colored a small piece of vellum with Copic Markers and die cut it with the same heart. I inlaid the heart and used a small bit of clear tape to hold it into place. 


Now.  this is my first project using the Chibitronics Lights. I was super nervous, but followed the instructions laid out in the manual that comes with the stater set. I practiced a circuit in the little workbook and then set to work building the circuit for my snowman. After putting together my little light, with my switch being the little bird, I built housing for my battery out of foam tape. I used a triple layer of tape going around the battery so it has to be pushed to turn the light on, and then also added foam tape to the other open areas around the circuit. I added my snowman scene to all of the exposed foam tape and pressed my little bird for the snowman's heart to light up. Voila!!! My snowman had a warm and glowing heart! These things are so stinkin' fun!!!
