Stay Crafty April 2024 Challenge Reminder - Happy Anniversary

Hello everyone.  I have a reminder card for the April Happy Anniversary/Birthday Stay Crafty  challenge over on the Hero Arts (HA) blog.

HA products used
▪️Yay Birthday stamp 

I made another birthday card and guess who made her first light up card!?💡  That’s right… ME! 😂 

Started by die cutting heavy weight white alcohol marker friendly cardstock using the rectangle infinity die.  Stamped the cake slice on it with Memento Tuxedo Black ink then coloured in with Copic Sketch markers.  Stamped the sentiments with red dye ink.  Inked the bottom of the sentiment stamps in black and re-stamped.  I wanted to tone down the bright red a bit.

Copic markers used:
browns - E31/23/25/27/29 
reds - R32/35/39 
yellows - Y000/11/13/15 
shading - C00/1/2/3 

The one light from Pear Blossom Press was the light up mechanism.  A hole was punched out in the flame and the opening backed with vellum.  Aligned the light to shine through the hole when the button is pressed and mounted the front panel on top with 2mm foam adhesives.  

Used a white gel pen to add “confetti” (probably should have skipped this step 🤷🏻‍♀️) and adhered the “PRESS” strip (printed out with my label maker) over the button to finish.  Here’s a short video. 

To qualify for one of two HA $50 gift cards to their online shop, your project must include at least one HA brand product.  One winner will be chosen randomly (so everyone has a chance) and the other will be voted on by the DT.  To link up your entry by 5:00 pm PT on May 5, 2024, please click HERE.  Thank you for stopping by.

The birthday girl was certainly delighted with the glowing card. I think the batteries in the glowing set are exhausted at this point :-)
This piece of cake looks so realistic that I want to reach out and eat it.
