Chibitronics and Winnie & Walter bloghop

Today I’m part of a collaboration blog hop between two of my absolute favorite companies in the craft world. Chibitronics and Winnie & Walter. I have stalked followed Winnie & Walter since the start and I adore their wonderful products. And I found the perfect sets to pair up with some fun Chibitronic lights and effect stickers.

I totally fell for the birthday themed stamp set called Wish Big with Evelin T Designs and I found some dies, In a Word: Birthday Tiles Cutaways, that was to die for. Sorry, couldn’t resist it! The big birthday words were perfect to make a window with lights behind with and to add some extra fun I used a blinking effect sticker.

To use an effect sticker is not hard at all. Just connect the negative side of the battery to the – on the effect sticker and then on to the – on the LEDs. The + side of the battery (the top) goes to the + on the effect sticker. Then another connection from blink on the effect sticker and to the + side of the LEDs. My picture of the inside was after the foam tape was added and it looks super messy so I drew a picture of the connection instead.

The switch is of the type you pull out to start the lights. I have gotten the idea from Eiko on the Chibitronics team, it’s pretty brilliant, here’s a picture from a previous card to show you what it looks like.

So the switch is in the shape of an X and the copper tape goes around it to connect both sides of the cut circuit. I find that it doesn’t drain the battery as easily because there is no connection before you want it. A regular push switch sometime connects when something is put on top of it or when you mail the card.

If it's crafty I have probably tried it. Or plan to try it tomorrow. I love to be creative in all ways, but I tend to gravitate to making cards, coloring and diecutting. I also have a bad yarn shopping.... ehm... KNITTING... habit. I live in Sweden with my husband, two cute minions (also known as kids) and three dogs. I work from home at a small international development company during the days, and craft while listening to audio books or follow my favourite series at nights and on weekends. I love it when I don't have to leave the house, being an introvert and socially awkward and all. That's why my slippers to shoe ratio is close to 1:1 and I'm not ashamed to admit it ;)
