Hi everyone! It is one of my favorite days…release day! Every single month Picket Fence Studios gives us so much to use for creating and this month is no exception. Another amazing release!! So I’m going to get right to my cards.
First up, I used this super cute selfie cat to create an interactive card. The name of the stamp is I Love Your Face and it is such fun. I colored the kitty to look a bit like my little Meg. We decided that Kate is far too dignified for selfies but Meg, well, she would totally be taking them! But then I wanted to take it a step further.
So I created an interactive light up card using Chibitronics Chibi lights. So when you push the cat’s paw, the camera “flashes”. I used my bone folder here to keep my hand out of the way. I dimmed the lights a bit too so you can see the light better. I’ll post a quick video over on my FB and IG pages later today. The foundation of this card is pretty simple. I used stitched dies to cut out the square of patterned paper. Then I used the actual die and traced inside it to make sure I knew where my boundaries are. I built the simple circuit and then poked a small hole in the paper under the cat’s paw so the light could shine through well. I think this is fun for anyone, don’t you?
Next up, I chose a set from the “Girls” series and this one is called Shop Hard. Now, I chose this image because it reminds me of one of my neighbor girls. So much so that I showed her mom (and mom agreed). This girl is like family to us and she is such a beauty. How could I not color her?? So out came the Copics and I chose some colors I thought would be right. While I love the sentiments in the set, they were not quite right for this girl (she is a super athlete and doesn’t have much time for shopping). Instead, I chose one from the new set called Let’s Shake Our Tail Feathers. I think it is perfect for a teenage girl!
The whole team will be sharing today and I hope you enjoy my cards. Make sure you go check out the whole release over at the Picket Fence Studios site! Thanks for stopping in today. See you soon!
