Chibitronics Blog Hop

Welcome to the Avery Elle and Chibitronics blog hop! 

Avery Elle and Chibitronics are pairing up for a fun collaboration today.  Chibitronics has products that we can use to easily illuminate our  cards, paper crafts, textiles, and more.  They are so cool!  Be sure to check out their website for videos, tutorials, examples and templates.

For my card for the hop, I used the new Avery Elle Elf-tacular stamp set and created a die cut sky in the background to illuminate with Chibitronics!

I just used die cuts to create holes and then marked where I wanted the LEDs to hide! 

So so fun and special! My daughter loved modeling this card for me!  (She promptly stole it to her room!) Chibitronics are really fun and rather easy to use - I can't wait to teach my kids how these work and let them create with them too!

We are giving away one Chibitronics STEM Starter Kit as well.   Just comment on this post or one of the design team members posts by Midnight, PST October 9th to be entered to win.  There is no purchase necessary and you must be 18 years of age or older to enter.  This giveaway is void where prohibited.  Winner will be announced on the Avery Elle blog on Monday, October 10th.

Let's get to the hop shall we? The Avery Elle and Chibitronics design teams have some amazing projects to share with you so be sure to check them out at the following links.

Cute Christmas

I've got 2 cards to share with you today!   
First I used the new Avery Elle Holiday Glass and sentiment from Comfort and Joy to create this card. I embossed the images in gold and colored them in lightly. 

Next, I used the new Holiday Packages stamp set and accented them with cuties from the North Pole Pals stamp. Mrs. Claus and the reindeer look so cute with these holiday packages in this last card by Heather.  I love the white gel pen accents.  They really finish off the card.

Avery Elle & SSS Stamp-tember

It's an Avery Elle and Simon Says Stamp Stamptember exclusive!  I'm thrilled to share this set with you today! 
These sentiments and snowflakes are amazing!!!

Here's my project! 
I embossed all the images in gold and then used my watercolors to add light color behind them!  So fun and would actually work great for mass production! 

Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing part of your day with me!
