Good morning! After posting my Christmas Card Challenges card this weekend I received a few requests for a tutorial using the Chibitronics LED light stickers so I decided to get over my fears and do a video!
I did things a little differently this time and would love your feedback! Over the summer I realized that I just cannot create and talk at the same time…so this time I recorded my video while binge-watching Grey’s Anatomy and then added a voiceover. I’m hoping the sound quality is acceptable and that things line up correctly…please feel free to offer advice or suggestions! Anyway, *deep breath*…here goes!
Watch on Youtube
I wanted to create a card using a similar circuit to my card from Sunday but I didn’t want to make the exact same design so I decided to use this fun scene-building set from Concord & 9th to create a starry summer night sky!
If you wanted to create this card without the lighted element you could add stickles or a gemstone to the star for a little extra sparkle. To create this card I stamped the trees, telephone poles, and sentiment from Concord & 9th’s Written in the Stars (which I mistakenly identified as Missing You in the video…oops!) with versafine and heat-embossed them with clear embossing powder. I used my MISTI to repeatedly align and stamp the telephone poles. I stamped the shooting star in versamark and heat-embossed it with silver embossing powder. Next I blended salty ocean, blueprint sketch, and chipped sapphire distress ink to my panel and spritzed it with water to create stars. While that was drying I worked on my circuits.
I punched a tiny hole in the center of the star for my light. On a smaller separate piece of cardstock I created my circuit with copper foil tape and added a white LED light sticker. I used a double layer of foam tape to build up the circuit piece so that it would be level with the battery needed to power the LED light (otherwise the card will be lopsided). Finally I lined up the hole in the star with the LED light and adhered them together! I create the circuits to be temporary…meaning, they are only lit when they are pressed together. It’s possible to make them permanent circuits but I prefer to preserve the battery life!
I’m sorry for not explaining the circuit process better but it’s really much easier to explain it via video! (If you’d like to skip right to that part of the video head to the 00:56 mark!) You can also see previous cards that I’ve made using the Chibitronics lights here, here, and here! If you have any questions about the lights please leave me a comment and I’ll try to help you out! 🙂 And a thumbs-up on my Youtube video would be great encouragement if you’d like to see more videos in the future! 😉
Thanks so much for visiting and have a fabulous day!
