Intoducing the Power Pack

 Hello there, I've got something so fun for you today. I am apart of a mega blog hop for the introduction of the Power Pack by Pear Blossom Press.  It's an easier way to make a light up card.

Here is a link to Amanda explaining the process in more details too.

 https://pearblossompress.com/power-pack/


The Power Packs are available three ways:
  • Power Pack Kit (set of 3 power packs, batteries, copper tape, and 3 LED stickers) retail $15.99 USD
  • Power Pack (3 units) (3 power packs with batteries only - perfect for people who already have Chibitronics kits, but don't want to make paper switches and battery holders) retail $9.99 USD
  • Power Pack (single unit) (1 power pack with a battery) retail 4.99 USD

Customers in the US can enter the code FREEUSA to receive free shipping on orders over $9 until May 11, 2019
International customers can enter the code INTL5 for $5 off International shipping until May 11, 2019.

Customers in Canada will be able to order kits from my amazing friend Kim Brown-Blyleven's Etsy shop here https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheCreativeCard/ I'm sending her kits to sell so Canadian shoppers won't have such high shipping costs. As soon as she receives them, she'll get them listed in her shop. The coupons above will not apply to orders from her shop, but I think customers will still come out ahead.

The Power Packs are available three ways:
  • Power Pack Kit (set of 3 power packs, batteries, copper tape, and 3 LED stickers) retail $15.99 USD
  • Power Pack (3 units) (3 power packs with batteries only - perfect for people who already have Chibitronics kits, but don't want to make paper switches and battery holders) retail $9.99 USD
  • Power Pack (single unit) (1 power pack with a battery) retail 4.99 USD
Now I'll show you my card.  I started off by creating the circuit with the copper tape, the power pack and the light.  For more details and a visual on this check out the video on my YouTube channel.   After that was all done I was ready to create the front my card to go over the light up part.  I adhered the power pack down with the advanced tape glider.

I used a retired stamp set from My favorite Things and stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Then I created a mask with the same stamp with Inkadinkado stamping mask paper and put it over so I could add some color to my background. I used fossilized amber with the Dollarama make up brush to on the background.  Then I took of the mask off and grabbed my spectrum noir makers to color in the image.   I used spectrum noir colors EB8, TN7, CT3, CT4, BT4, EB2 and IG8.  Then I added some gold washi tape I had in my collection to add something extra to the card.  Then I stamped the sentiment "You light up my life" from that same stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I stamped the sentiment 3 times just to emphasis the saying.  At this point I stamped an arrow to point to the button to show you where to light up the card and wrote in push here and I don't have a stamp for that.   Then I adhered the card front to the card base with foam tape to add a bit of dimension between the button and and allow everything room to light up.
