This week Newton’s Nook Designs and Chibitronics are partnering for a fabulous inspiration week! All week long both design teams will be sharing ways to light up your cards using Chibi lights with Newton’s Nook Designs stamps! This is a match just made to work together since so many of the NND sets have features that are perfect for lighting up.
As soon as I heard about the collaboration, my first thought was this dragon from Knight’s Quest. I just knew that somehow he had to have “real” fire! I started by coloring the images with Copic Markers (I have colors listed in my YouTube video). I cut the hills using the Land Borders Dies (NND) and stitched rectangles dies (SSS). My base is the new Tranquil Tide card stock (a Stampin’ Up In Color) that is sponged with Night of Navy ink. The hills are Night of Navy and Smoky Slate (SU). I put one of the red lights behind the fire and yellow lights behind the windows to create this awesome interactive card. Want to see it lit?!
It is so awesome in person too! I created a short video to show you a few more specifics on how I created the circuit and the “switch” for this. Things I learned along the way….Think of a fun place for the switch so that it is easy for the recipient, make sure you press the copper tape on really well (I used a bone folder), check your circuits before gluing stuff down (I may have checked a few too many time, haha). The kit comes with great directions on building your circuits. Mine is a pretty basic parallel circuit. Here is my video so you can see the rest:
