It’s a special day today, because us Chibitronics gang are teaming up with the amazingly talented individuals over at MFT Stamps for a super awesome COLLABORATION!
Over the course of today and tomorrow (15th & 16th Feb), please head over to the chibitronics and MFT stamps blogs to start the hop and see all the inspiration.
If you hop along, please remember to leave a like and a comment – and then you can be in with a chance to win a Chibitronics starter kit or a $50 voucher to the MFT stamps store! What are you waiting for!?
So let’s talk about my project. If you are familiar with my work, you will probably know that I louuuurve an interactive card. BUT sometimes I get these crazy ideas in my head and I want to push it to the LIMIT! I get totally overexcited, and I have a mindset of ‘MAKE IT WORK!’.
A few months ago, I made a slider pop up card, and I thought it would be awesome if I could find a way to incorporate the slider element into a Chibitronics circuit. And this was the perfect occasion to try.
Scroll down to watch the video tutorial on how I made this card, which features the Blueprint sketch 28 dies, Otterly love you stamps and the Bitty Bears stamps, all from MFT stamps. I also used a small ‘Pull Here’ stamp from Heffy Doodle Stamps’ Interactively Yours stamp set.
At first glance, this card looks clean and simple – what a cute little otter, huh? The background I made using Distress Oxide inks and I spritzed a stencil with some water (with a little perfect pearls powder mixed in), then laid my inked background on top. This results in this beautiful transference of the stencil design. At the top, can you see the little ‘pull here’ sentiment?
When you slide up the card, it reveals BIG SURPRISES! Not only do you see the ‘You have my heart’ sentiment on the pull tab (from the Bitty Bears stamp set), and of course you get to see the ‘I’m otterly in love with you’ sentiment on the revealed section…. but the little otter has popped up AND the heart in his hands is GLOWING PINK!
Like I said, the circuit is indeed one of the more advanced circuits – but it just goes to prove that there are lots of possibilities with these fun little light stickers. Don’t let it scare you though, there’s loads of amazing projects using a simple circuit. Search my blog for Chibitronics to find more if you want to take a look.
Here’s a little peak from the side. I am in love with this guy. My daughter Piper (6yo) has been playing with him all day!
Don’t forget to watch the video to see how it was made, and to be in with chances to win a prize, leave a comment below.
Here are the links that take you to the other blogs in this hop for today. There are more fantastic projects on the line up for tomorrow, 16th Feb.
“Otterly” cute card!! Exciting to be able to put lights in cards.

What magic is this? I may have to watch this video a few times in order to replicate this but I love literally EVERYTHING you’ve done here. I love your stencil technique for getting that water effect, the way you modified that die to fold blew my mind and you’ve created the cutest little card here. Really fantastic!
