Hi all, Sandra here with you today and I am so excited to show you my light-up card I made for the Picket Fence Studios and Pear Blossom Press Blog Hop Collaboration!

It was the perfect reason to combine the PFS new July/August 2023 Release with some amazing EZ lights I had never used before and I honestly was a bit afraid of. But it was so easy and fast done I almost couldn´t believe it.

Pear Blossom Press EZ lights are all-in-one light-up units that are already attached with long wires so you needn´t build up a circuit. Just add the included battery and get started crafting!

For my card I decided to go with an alcohol ink on thin Yupo paper created background so the lights would shine through without problems.


I die cut the A2 Ghost House Cover Plate Die three times and glued it together to create some dimension, then stamped, colored up the cute little witch, the ghosts and pumpkin and embossed the sentiment with WOW white embossing powder on black cardstock.

My cardbase was made with the Double Stitched Layering Rectangles Die and I added 2mm foam tape around it and taped the 3 lights and button in place so the eyes and mouth of the house would light up if the sentiment is touched.


Then layered the background over the cardbase and added the little ghosts, witch, pumpkin and sentiment.

Whimsy Stamps - Life begins after coffee

Hey lovelies, any coffee lover out there? Today´s card is a special one for all the halloween loving coffee addicted fellows!

I used the fantastic crafty halloweeny stuff range you can get at Whimsy Stamps to make this creepy but also funny scene.

The Zombie coming out of the muddy earth and dark grass between the graveyards is holding a sign saying that "Life begins after coffee" so I think he really needs a big cup of hot maybe black coffee to get back to life, right?

It was funny to change the sentiment into "You´re the Scream to my coffee" and adding the ghost flying by. 
I also loved giving the Zombie hand a slightly yellow glowing cup of coffee between its creepy green fingers.
The background was made in nearly no time by using a sheet of paper from the Nevermore Paper Pack and adding all the layers of my card on top of it.
