Honey Bee Stamps & Chibitronics Blog Hop

* For Caring Hearts Card Drive post please scroll down or click HERE *



Hi peeps!! Happy World Card Making Day! To celebrate this special day, Honey Bee Stamps is teaming up with Chibitronics for a fun blog hop. Welcome and enjoy your visit. If you've been following the hop list, you should have arrived here from Vanessa Amann blog. In case you miss any link, below I have a complete list of all the blog.

I am pretty excited at the way my card turned out, cause it actually work! LOL. It's been a while since I made my last Chibitronic card. I had to watch how to do it all over again on YouTube. Of course, there's the manual,but as usual, am not the most patient when it comes to reading manual. I'd rather watch. 

So, here's my card using Honey Bee Stamps Gather Together set (I super duper love the critters in this set).




To start, I stamped and colored the critter image with Copic markers. Granted this set comes with coordinating dies. But, I really want the cut to be right on the line, so I went with fussy cutting the whole image with scissors and x-acto knife. 

Then I work on  the background. I watercolor a panel of watercolor cardstock with distress ink, let it dry. Then I stamped the sentiment from the limited edition STAMPtember Remarkable You set and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.



On the picture above, ifyou look closely, you can see I punched out 3 small holes. This is where I want the Chibitronics light to shine through. I marked  the location of these holes on my card base and adhere the copper tape from Chbitronics kit following the holes location.

Before I adhere the panel to the card base, I tested the lights to make sure they work and also to make sure I adhere them on the right position.




The pic above shows the card without the lights on and below with the lights on.




Cute critters, bright colors and light up card, perfect combination, right? Since I didn't put a sentiment push here directly on the card, when I mail the card I will simply include a note for the recipient to press on the squirrel for fun surprise. :)

Now, how about some fun giveaway? Honey Bee Stamps is giving away a $25 gift card & Chibitronics will be giving away a starter pack. Simply leave a comments on each blog and winners will be picked randomly. The winners will be posted on Monday 10/09 on both blogs.

Also, you want to stock up on some Honey Bee Stamps? Perfect timing. There's special offer going on right now for limited time only.
