Catherine Pooler Designs & Pear Blossom Press Together!

Welcome to the Catherine Pooler Designs and Pear Blossom Press Collab Hop! We're sharing fun, interactive cards that will really brighten your day. They feature awesome new stamps and dies from Catherine Pooler Designs, and with help from Pear Blossom Press, they all really light up! Be sure to hop along with us for loads of inspiration; our designers have come up with some brilliant cards.

I have three cards to share with you today!

My first card features the fab "Bright Days" stamp set by CPD paired up with the genius "EZ Lights" by Pear Blossom Press:

Sadly, I forgot to grab a photo of my circuit design behind my card front but the EZ Lights are SO amazing and quick to add, that it's easy to kind of figure out where I placed the lights and the battery pack.

When you press that little blue heart, here's what happens...

To get the heart part of the bulb to be "colorful", I used my Copic Markers and colored the hearts in from the BACK so when the light shines through, the color shows!  SO easy to do too!

For my second card, not only did I used the "Bright Days" stamp set again but I placed my fun bulbs in the arms of the adorable Octopus from the "Ocean Chums" stamp set.  For the sentiment focal area, I cut out a circle to reveal the greeting...

For this card I used the super bright circular "Halo Lights".  All you do is carefully punch out the whole light assembled from it's card and adhere it to your card base.  The little red button is where you press to activate the light on your card front.

When you push the subtle "Push" word on the middle of the right hand side of the card front, the entire greeting is engulfed with a beautiful white, bright light!

For my final card I wanted to see if I could the "Halo Lights" again but beneath my card front entirely.

So I designed the stamping of the bulbs on my card front panel so that 4 of the bulbs sat right above my 4 LED lights in the "Halo Light" assembly.  I added some circles of yellow Copic Marker to the back side of the bulb images so that the yellow would show through the cardstock when lit from behind.

Here's the end result!  A fun group of bulbs all a-glow!  I know my sister and her boys are going to LOVE this one!

I just LOVE making and sending interactive cards to my friends and family!  I can't wait to get my hands on more of the EZ Lights and Halo Lights!

Now, make sure you check out the rest of the talent today...

Oh my gosh, all pretty, but that octopus has stolen my heart! The halo EZ lights against those gorgeous spectacular oceany colors, gasp! To put the sleek long slender lightbulbs in the "hands" was so neat, kinda wished those lit up too with the 3 bulb EZ light. Love it!
