I have another card for you today for the Whimsy Stamps Halloweener Design Team, and this one LIGHTS UP! This card features the Headless Horseman Clear Stamp Set, The Shaker Maker Glitter Globe Die Set, Nevermore Paper Pack, Tree Silhouette Rubber Stamp, and the bats are from the Build a Graveyard Die Set. Links to these are at the bottom of this post as well as links to the EZ Lights from Pear Blossom Press.I filmed a tutorial as I was making this and threw in a mini ink blending tutorial as well as a mini machine stitching on paper tutorial, so it ended up being kind of long. Regardless, I hope you find it informative and helpful.
I used the EZ Lights with the set of three lights on wires for this card. The push button for them is the lowest bat on the card. It lights up just the Headless Horseman's Head. You do have to fussy cut the teeny, tiny eyes, nose and mouth with a Craft Knife, but it is worth the time and patience in my opinion!
That being said, the card and stamps are still just as great when his face doesn't light up, so if you aren't in to the trouble of the fussy cutting and fooling around with the lights, not a problem. Just stamp it all and you still have a great card!
I truly hope you enjoyed the video tutorial on this card and like Jennifer McGuire did for me, that it sparks an idea or inspiration for your own make.
Have a crafty day!
