Good morning! Today I’m sharing a video tutorial showing how to use Chibitronics LED stickers and effects stickers to create a twinkling starry night sky!
Before I forget…there’s one step that I left out of my video (that, to be honest, I kinda wish I hadn’t done). After I finished the card I decided to add a little more shimmer to my sky so I added spectrum noir clear sparkle all over the card. It definitely reacted with the distress ink and created more of a mottled texture across the card (as you can see in the photos below). Oh well, you live, you learn! 😉 However, it’s incredibly sparkly which is always a plus!
And here’s what my card looks like when the lights go out! 😉
To be honest, it’s probably easier to watch the video to explain the process of adding the interactive circuit to the card, but you could also create the card without the circuit. I stamped the bunnies from WPlus9 onto my card and masked them with post-it tape. Then I blended distress inks over the background to create my sky. I also added a few spritzes of water, a few spritzes of shimmer spray, and a few flicks of white acrylic paint to add dimension and sparkle to my sky. I colored the bunnies with copic markers and then added the ground using die-cuts from Lawn Fawn. I also stamped and heat-embossed the sentiment from WPlus9.
Thanks so much for visiting and I hope my card inspires you to add a little technology to your papercrafts! Have a wonderful day!

I love the card. I’m going to try something similar. My son is a skateboarder who, because he works long hours, does most of his skating at night. I’m going to try doing a nighttime sky with stars, and a skateboarder. I don’t have the special effects stickers, but I think he’ll like it anyway.
Thanks for the great directions. If I can pull this off, it will be due to your inspiration!
