Chibitronics and Newton's Nook Collaboration

Hi Folks! You may have noticed the Chibitronics and Newton's Nook design teams have been having a lot of fun together this week showcasing how the adorable Newton's Nook stamps can look paired up with the magical Chibitronics lights.


 You can join in on the fun by leaving a comment on the blogs throughout this week for a chance to win a $30 starter kit from Chibitronics or a $30 gift certificate to Newton's Nook. Winners will be randomly chosen at the end of this week!


My card features the adorable Cosmic Newton peering through his telescope at the night sky. Only problem is, his lens isn't quite long enough to find the stars he's looking for. 

That's where you come in. Once you help Newton extend the lens by pulling on it, he's finally able to see all those stars twinkle in the night sky! To make the telescope extension piece, I stamped the end of the telescope on a separate piece of paper and cut parallel lines to make a long strip. Then I cut a slit in the main telescope image, slid the telescope lens in and adhered a T stop so the lens can't come all the way out. This allows you to slide the lens in and out. To make the lights go on and off, the strip is wrapped in copper tape and will complete the circuit as it's slid along the battery underneath the panel.


To give the stars an extra glimmer and shine, I punched tiny holes in the center so they will really twinkle when the circuit is connected.


This one was super fun to make! I like that once you finish sliding out the telescope and reading "Reach for the," the stars turn on to finish the sentiment without having to stamp the actual word "stars." Don't forget to stop by the Chibitronics blog to see the other cards featured today.

Thanks so much for looking!
