I made two cards and kept them both pretty simple. I wanted the adorable images and light up features to really "shine" haha!
Let's start with the Autumn themed card. I created quite possibly the simplest of scenes with just a bit of stenciling! I used the Rectangle Trio Stencil and centered it at the top of my card and blended on a few Autumn colored inks. I started at the bottom with brown, then red, orange, and just a bit of yellow.
I colored some cute images from the My Favorite Things Happy Campers Stamp Set and cut them with the coordinating dies and arranged them on my scene. I pokes some holes where I wanted my lights to shine through and EASILY added the EZ Lights behind my card panel to make it light up. Emphasis on the easy! All you have to do is line up where you want the lights. Watch my video above - I walk you though just how I like to line them up!
I love to use Double Thick Foam Tape from Pear Blossom Press to assemble my card. It's no fuss! No need to double up the tape and the backing comes off super easily! I added a stamped sentiment under my scene and this card is done! I chose to place the push button behind the fox so when you push on his guitar the moon, campfire, and lantern light up! You could have a special place with a "push" sentiment, but I like to just add a little note for the recipient to push for a special surprise!
I decided to go spooky with my second card! I made a little trick-or-treat scene outside of a haunted house using some new stamps and dies from My Favorite Things. I created my background with some ink blending and the Rolling Clouds Stencil. This stencil is one of my new favorites! I added a road to the bottom of my panel. It's really just a strip of black cardstock that I added some white gel pen dashed lines to! I cut a bunch of elements from the Haunted House Die Set - the house, trees, a door knob, and some boards to make my windows creepy!
All of my trick-or-treaters are from the Boo Crew Stamp Set. Aren't they cute!? I colored them with Copics and cut them out with the coordinating dies. I created this card the same way as the first - I arranged my scene and poked holes in the jack-o-lantern, moon, and the top window of the house and easily assembled the EZ Lights mechanism behind my panel.
I again assembled my card using the Double Thick Foam Tape from Pear Blossom Press. It just makes my life so easy! I have a confession - I forgot a sentiment! It's something I do ALL the time! Usually I catch it, but I didn't! That's no problem, thought! I'll add one to the inside of the card!
I hope you've enjoyed this collaboration between My Favorite Things and Pear Blossom Press! And hopefully you've learned some tips and tricks, too!
