Today I have a very fun card as a collaboration between Lawn Fawn and Chibitronics!
I'll admit it did take me a little while to figure out the mechanics of my card, but then again I was trying to create something with 5 lights and still trying and hide my battery. But it all worked out in the end. I created a parallel circuit and all is hidden behind the colored panel which is popped up on lots of foam adhesive.
The foam keeps the batter from making a connection until you press the heart down. (Thanks to my husband for pressing the heart for this picture <3) Yainea made a video showing how she created her firefly card which you can watch HERE on the lawn fawn blog. the circuits and mechanics that work behind the scenes of my card are the same as she used for hers. She allowed the lights to glow behind the paper making the fireflies completely light up. I wanted mine to be more of a pin point light like bulbs you would see on rides at the fair to I used a small hole punch to punch out the locations of my lights.
The night sky was colored with distress inks in Victorian Velvet, Dusty Concord and Chipped Sapphire. I created a mask for the image before using the distress inks, then I colored the Ferris wheel in with copics. I use the simple stitched hillside border for the ground and stamped the sentiment in Yeti ink. The stars in the sky were made with a silver pigment pen.

It's the last day of Lawn Fawn Inspiration week and today we are featuring the Flower Border die and Stripey Backdrop die.
I cut the Stripey Background from white cardstock then I lined up the stitched border dies with the stripes and ran it through again to get the stitching details. I layered the background over a piece of cardstock blended with Picked Raspberries, Worn Lipstick and Tattered Rose distress ink.
For the sentiment I used the Scripty Mom die along with a stamp from So Much To Say. I added glitter to the mom die cut and finished it off with a frame cut with the largest stitched rectangle frame die.
My second card is colored completely with distress ink blended onto watercolor cardstock. I used Victorian Velvet, Shaded Lilac and Tumbled Glass. The flowers are colored with Worn Lipstick, Wilted Violet and Scattered Straw. I used Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn for the stems and the ground.
The sentiment is from So Much to Say and I added a few dots with white gel pen in the sky for more detail.

Back today with some more Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week projects! The first set I am focusing on today is Ready, Set, Shake. This new set will let you to play with the snowglobe from Ready, Set, Snow all year long!
I used the snowglobe to make a spring card with some Chirpy Chirp Chirp chicks inside. For the background I used green polka dot paper from Let's Polka in the Meadow and cut it with the grassy border die then layered it over some Mermaid cardstock. I stamped the little clouds from Hello Sunshine in Yeti ink in the sky.
My little chicks are colored with colored pencils and I filled the my spring globe with a yellow shaker mix from Little Things from Lucy's Cards.
For my second card I used the planner set for something other than a planner or course. I just love these little images, I think they would be super fun to make a background with!
I cut some stitched squares from various colors of cardstock and stamped images in black ink. The sentiment is from Scripty Sayings.
