Light Up Halloween

Good morning and welcome to my blog, if this isn't your first visit than welcome back!
Today I am up on The Rabbit Hole Designs blog and I have a fun Halloween card to share with you!
You've got to love a holiday that says......"It's ok to combine orange and purple with each other!"
You wouldn't think that these colors would look good together but I just love them
blended next to each other! Maybe it's that they are so opposite, they do say opposites attract!
Anyway, I just love the color combination and I love the way this card turned out!

The best part about this card is the light up pumpkin!
I used the EZ Lights by Pear Blossom Press.
These lights are super easy to use and make easy work of making light up cards!
They consist of one battery pack attached to 3 mini lights.
I placed the 3 lights under the pumpkins eyes and nose.

Here is a quick recipe for my card:

1) I used the largest Wavy Wonky Rectangle die from Kat Scrappiness to cut a
panel out of Bristol Smooth card stock. (I love this paper for blending Distress Oxide Inks)

2) Blend Distress Oxide inks: Carved Pumpkin into Spiced Marmalade on the bottom and
Wilted Violet into Shaded Lilac at the top. Next I spritzed the panel with water using the 
Tim Holtz Distress Sprayer and dry to give your background a distressed look.

3) Stamp Happy Halloween from the "Boo To You" stamp set in black
ink at the top of the panel and add the little spider around the words.

4) Add grassy border at the bottom of the panel to ground your card. I used patterned paper
from the Queen and Co Dots Paper Pad and I cut it out using the Lawn Fawn
Grassy Border Die. I also sponged the top of the grass with dark green ink to give it a little depth.

5) Stamp the pumpkin image from "Hey Gord-geous" in Gina K Amalgam Ink
and color in with various Copic Markers. I added Gina K Glitz Glitter Gel to
hat, eyes and mouth for a little sparkle. Die cut pumpkin with matching die.

6) Lastly tape the EZ Light battery pack to a piece of black cardstock measuring
5 1/2" x  4 1/4" and place foam tape all over panel avoiding battery pack.
I placed my battery pack on the bottom left of the card
and threaded the 3 lights up through the bottom right of the main panel. I adhered the
3 small lights to the back of the pumpkin behind the eyes and mouth. I placed my pumpkin on foam tape to leave room for the lights and then I adhered the main panel down to the black panel.
Press purple button on battery pack and prepare to be amazed!

** I added a small half circle over the battery pack and hand wrote
"push here" however there are stamp sets available that already have these sayings.
Here is one by Lawn Fawn:

This card was so much fun to make and the EZ lights make quick work of light up cards!
In no time you can have a fun interactive card that will amaze your recipient!
