Pear Blossom Power Pack Hop

Welcome to my blog if this is your first time stopping by and if you've
been here before than welcome back!
Today I have a really exciting project to share with you!
My friend Amanda from Pear Blossom Press has asked me to join in on her
The Power Pack is an incredible device that allows you to make easy 
light up cards! Trust me when I tell you how easy it is!
I was intimidated at first but I'm so glad I gave it a try because it turned out
to be SOOOOOO much fun! I even made a video to show you my entire
process for making my card. I had never made a light up card until now but I 
know I will be making more thanks to Amanda's awesome Power Packs!

Here are 2 pictures of the card I created for the Blog Hop,
the second shows the card lit up in the dark.
I'll give a quick description with links to products used but 
for the full instructions please see the video below.

Card Recipe:

Step 1 - I used the Kat Scrappiness Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Dies to cut a piece of Bristol Smooth Card Stock.

Step 2 - Next I taped the Brutus Monroe Tangled Waves Stencil to my card stock and used the Picket Fence Life Changing Brushes to blend Twisted CitronPeacock Feathers and Salty Ocean 
Distress Inks over the stencil.

Step 3 - I stamped the Angler Fish and Starfish from The Rabbit Hole Designs  SoFishticated Stamp Set in Gina K Amalgam Ink and colored with Copic markers.

Step 4 - I used my Scan n Cut to cut out the images and painted Inkon 3 Liquid Pixie Dust to them. This will give your images beautiful sparkle and shine. I used the Stitched Flag Dies  to stamp my sentiment on to and colored with Twisted Citron Distress Ink.

Step 5 - Place your stenciled panel over your card base and mark where you want your Power Pack 
battery and LED light to go. Build your circuit with the copper tape included in the Power Pack by connecting positive to positive and negative to negative. Use a double layer of foam tape to build up your card around your circuit.  Make sure not to cover the copper tape with the foam tape.


Step 6 - Press the button and watch your LED lightbulb light up!
Step 7 - Repeat step 6 over and over and over because it's just SO MUCH FUN!!!!
