Happy Birthday - an Interactive card that Lights up - Just Add Ink #341

The challenge with Just Add Ink is to create a project that has an interactive element in it, whether it be a shaker, slider, pop up, or a light up element.
For about 3 months I have been working with putting lights in cards and have been moderately successful.  The technology initially intimidated me (and it still does) but I move forward, now using easier technology.
This card has a battery cell and a thin wire that has seven tiny lights along its lengths. Tiny holes are punctured in the card front to allow the light to shine through.

The card front is Night of Navy, layered with Whisper White and then Serene Scenic DSP.

The Lift Me Up stamp set and coordinating Up & Away thinlets were used to create the art piece of this card.  The large hot air balloon was die cut in Night of Navy cardstock, with the following colours built behind it: calypso coral, night of navy, peekaboo peach, and marina mist.

The medium balloon was stamped with Night of Navy ink; the smaller balloon in Calypso coral.  Both were die cut and adhered to the card front. 

Before adhering the large balloon, some clouds were stamped, die cut and added to the sky.  The balloon was then added using dimensionals.

After the lights were positioned behind the card front, some holes were poked in some strategic areas.  If you look closely you can see the pin prick holes.

A switch at the side turns the light on and off.

Isn't that terrific?

Supplies Used:
Stamp: Lift Me Up
Ink: Basic Gray, Night of Navy, Calypso Coral
Papers: Night of Navy, Whisper White, Serene Scenery DSP, Calypso Coral, Peekaboo Peach

Beautiful You in a Mediterranean Moment - a partial case

I saw this idea on Pinterest and was intrigued enough to make this card.  Two stamp sets are involved, and a masking technique is used.

Stamps: Beautiful You, Mediterranean Moment
Inks: Black Memento, watercolor pencils
  • Pacific Point 4 1/4 by 5 1/2"
  • Pacific Point 5 by 3 1/2"
  • Whisper White 4 1/4 by 5 1/4"
  • Whisper White (art piece) 3 1/4 by 4 1/2"
  • Animal Party DSP 3 3/4 by 5"
  • Pacific Point 3/4 by 2" for sentiment
Accessories: Gold thread, dimensionals, blender pen, Clear Wink of Stella

The image of the lady was stamped first, masked, and then the Mediterranean scene was stamped.  Both were coloured with watercolour pencils and blended with a blender pen.  Some Wink of Stella was applied to the lady.
