Collab: Chibitronics and Lawn Fawn - Well Done!

Hi everyone,

I am super duper excited to be joining this awesome collaboration with two of my favorite crafty brands: Chibitronics and Lawn Fawn! If you've been reading my blog for a while, you've probably seen me post many projects featuring both products.  I create things with these products on a regular basis.

Here are two projects that I made featuring Lawn Fawn's Let's BBQ stamp set along with Chibitronics Light Stickers.  My friend, Patricia, who runs Chibitronics LOVES to eat... so I made this card for her!


Materials:

  • Chibitronics Starter Kit
  • Lawn Fawn: Let's BBQ stamp set
  • Lawn Fawn: Scalloped Rectangle Stackables die 
  • Lawn Fawn: Grassy Border die
  • Lawn Fawn: Let's Bokeh In the Snow Patterned Paper
  • Simon Says Stamp: Stitched Rectangles Die
  • Distress Ink: Tumbled Glass
  • Copic Markers
    • Grill: C3, C5, C7, C9
    • Burger Patty: E55, E57
    • Burger Bun: E53, E55
    • Lettuce, Ketchup, Cheese: YG07, YG13, R22, R24, Y21, Y35
  • Versamark Ink
  • White Embossing Powder
Directions:
  • For the card: 
    • Stamp the grill, patty and burger images on Copic-friendly cardstock.  Color with Copic Markers and fussy cut.
    • Cut two shades of green cardstock from the grassy borders dies. Offset one on top of the other.
    • Using the Tumbled Glass distress ink, color a blue cloudy sky on some white cardstock
    • Layer the Grass and sky together and die cut the whole piece using the stitched rectangle dies
    • Also cut a piece of the red striped patterned paper from the stitched rectangle die.  Then go back and use the scalloped rectangle die to cut the edge forming an awning.
    • Using Versamark Ink, emboss the "Well Done!" sentiment on the awning using white embossing powder.
  • For the lights:
    • Punch two holes on either side of the burger patty on the grill.
    • Mark these holes in each layer leading to the card base
    • On the card base, line up the lights so they match the holes and create a parallel circuit using two red stickers.  This is what the circuit looks like (pardon, the ripped, paper... I forgot to take a photo while making the card, so I went back and removed the front to take this photo)
  • Using foam adhesive, prop up the card front.
  • And there you have it!

Check out all the exciting projects that the Design Team members made over at the Lawn Fawn blog and the Chibitronics blog.

Okay, who's hungry now????

Enjoy!

  3. This card is way too cute! I always wonder how you come up with ideas like that! Wish I could stretch my budget on the stamps as well as the lights! But another month to work, another month to spend money on fave crafty things. Love your idea and thanks for sharing!
