Good afternoon! I am SO SO excited to help kick off Ellen Hutson’s Summer of Stamping with the brand new collaboration release from Lawn Fawn: S’More the Merrier!! This stamp and die bundle is available exclusively at Ellen Hutson and you can find it here! Snag yours soon as this adorable set sure to sell out quickly!!
When I saw S’More the Merrier I knew it would pair perfectly with Chibitronics LED stickers to create a magical summer scene! I have a video sharing how to create a circuit with multiple lights and how to use a thin, removable battery holder so that your card doesn’t require extra postage for mailing!
I’m having a little trouble with Youtube today and the video isn’t live yet but should be up very soon! You can watch the video below or over at my YouTube channel here.
When you push the button the fire glows red and the stars shine in the summer night sky!
To start I stamped all the images with versafine and heat-embossed them with clear embossing powder. I colored all the images with copic markers and die-cut them with the coordinating dies. Then I stamped the campfire onto a panel of strathmore bristol cardstock and colored it with copic markers. After I finished coloring I masked the campfire and ground. Then I blended the sky with scattered straw, broken china, blueprint sketch, chipped sapphire, and black soot distress oxide ink. Next I used antique linen, tea dye, evergreen bough, pine needles, and black soot distress oxide to blend the ground and grass. I splattered the panels with water and concentrated distress oxide ink and let it dry.
I stamped the sentiment from S’More the Merrier and heat-embossed it with white embossing powder. Then I arranged the stamped images to create my scene and adhered them. At this point you could be done with the card but I decided to add a little something extra! 🙂
Honestly it’s easier to watch the video for all the details on creating a circuit but below I’ll include photos of my circuit for reference:
In the first photo you can see the layout of the light stickers, in the second you can see the sketch of where my copper tape will go, and in the third you can see the copper tape with the light stickers on top! I’d also recommend watching the video for more info on the battery holder that I’ve recently started using. Instead of needing to use a double or triple layer of foam mounting tape on your card you’ll only need a single A2 panel of fun foam, your card can be mailed with regular postage, AND you can remove or replace the battery easily without destroying the whole card! 🙂 It’s a total game-changer!
After I finished the circuit and adhered all the layers together I added a little crystal glaze with chunky and prisma glitter to finish the card with a little extra sparkle!!
I hope you enjoyed my video and card today! I can’t wait to see what you’re going to create with S’More the Merrier!
