Tinks lights up with LED Stickers from Chibitronics

 Hi Everyone,

For today's card I have used a stamp set from CC Designs and used LED Stickers from Chibitronics to light up the wings on the image.




Ingredients

Stamp Set:  Tinks

Medium:  Copic Markers

Sentiment:  Included in stamp set

Background:  Distress Ink, Shimmer Spray

Electronics:  LED Stickers, Fabric Conductive Tape & 2025 Battery

Card Stock:  X-Press It Blending Card

Ink:  MFT Extreme Black

Other:  Silhouette Cameo, Shimmer Pen, Glossy Accents, Acrylic Stars, Liquid Glue


Method:

1. Background & Image

I have stamped the image onto X-Press It Blending card using black ink and coloured it with Copic Markers.

The background has been created using Distress Ink and a Shimmer Spray.



2. Card Base (Battery Holder)

This card will measure 14x10cm once complete.

I have used the Silhouette Cameo to cut the layers for the battery holder (Card base).  I glue 8 of them together for a 2025 battery.

I have glued them together using liquid glue from Bearly Arts and allow them to dry completely before completing the card.

I put plain card stock on the back of this to finish the card.



3. Circuit

The circuit is designed on the battery holder.

I have marked where the lights will go (from the card front).  I then mapped where I want the circuit to go in pencil. This makes it easier for me to complete the circuit.



4. Completing the Circuit

The Circuit has been completed using the Fabric Conductive Tape and LED Stickers.

This card works by press the battery compartment and the light will shine under the wings of the fairy.



5.  Adhere card front

It is time to adhere the card front I prepared earlier to the battery holder/card base.

I have used double sided tape to do this.

The Coloured image has been adhered using foam tape.



6.  Let's light this card up!

This circuit uses a 2025 battery to power this card.

Just press on the batter compartment or the 'press here' and what the card light up!




A full video tutorial is available on the Chibitronics YouTube Channel or my YouTube Channel after the 20th May 2022.

I hope you have found this tutorial helpful.

Please do not hesitate to ask any questions.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenge:

Until next time
