Bold & Bright Collaboration Hop with Hero Arts & Pear Blossom Press: EZ Light Up Card

  


Hello Crafters! 
I'm alive, in case you were wondering. 
Kidding kind of lol. It's been a minute. My apologies. My creativity took an unexpected break but it seems to be back and it returned at the perfect time! 

Welcome to the Hero Arts & Pear Blossom Press Bold and Bright Blog Hop! 

You’re going to see some of the coolest light-up cards, all featuring your favorite stamps and dies from Hero Arts. Get ready for lots of inspiration, and be sure to comment as you hop along, for your chance to win a $50 store credit! 

This card was so much fun to make. Interactive cards aren't usually my jam but I absolutely adore the way this one came out!!


The front looks a bit meh I know. It's cool. I wanted there to be a little peek-a-boo moment happening on my card front. I used the Hero Arts Porthole Fancy Die along with some metallic silver paper to create my window. I added some detail with my copic markers and colored the background with my distress inks. Spatter on some Perfect Pearls for good measure. 



This scene ya'll. All the puffy hearts. This is the Bold & Bright Hop after all! 
This scene is all one layer. 
I didn't want to add any more bulk knowing I was going to mount my panel with foam tape in order to accomodate my light up mechanism from Pear Blossom Press. 


Stamp and mask accordingly. Color with distress inks while your images are masked. Remove masks. Color images with Copic markers. 
Of course I added more Perfect Pearls in the background because I cannot get even shimmer sparkle glitter glimmer on all the cards. :) 

Oh did I say light up earlier?
Yes. I. Did. 
Are you ready for how cool this is?! 


Ahhh! 
I love it! 
I mean come on. It's pretty cool. 
I said before interactive cards aren't my jam. It's not because interactive cards aren't awesome, they totally are. It's because typically I get super frustrated trying to make the pieces parts work together. 
Not this time. It was SO easy. Insert battery. Tape wires where they need to go. Mount with foam tape. Done. 
BAM. Completely awesome card. 


I took a second picture at night just so you could how much this baby really illuminates your card. 
Super love it. 

Every good hop has prizes, right? So Hero Arts, and Pear Blossom Press are each giving away a $50 store credit! Comment on this post by January 29, 2021 to be entered to win. Winners will be posted on the Pear Blossom Press Blog on February 6, 2021.

I did manage to get the video together for this whole process. Enjoy!




Thanks so much for stopping by!

  29. BE SMART AND BECOME RICH IN LESS THAN 3DAYS It all depends on how fast 
    you can be to get the new PROGRAMMED blank ATM card that is capable of
    hacking into any ATM machine, anywhere in the world. I got to know about 
    this BLANK ATM CARD when I was searching for job online about a month 
    ago It has really changed my life for good and now I can say I'm rich and 
    I can never be poor again. The least money I get in a day with it is about 
    $50,000.(fifty thousand USD) Every now and then I keeping pumping money 
    into my account. Though is illegal,there is no risk of being caught 
    ,because it has been programmed in such a way that it is not traceable,it 
    also has a technique that makes it impossible for the CCTVs to detect 
    you. For details on how to get yours today, email the hackers on :
    atmmachinehackers1@gmail.com Tell your 
    loved once too, and start to live large. That's the simple testimony of how 
    my life changed for good. Love you all . the email address again is
