HAI Collab with Angela Myhre

Welcome guest designer, Angela Myhre, to the blog today!

I’m so excited to be a part of the Pear Blossom Press/HAI Supply collab hop! I’ve created a card using Amanda’s amazing EZ-Light pre-wired lights and Victor’s beautiful washi paper.
 
 
I decided to use black watercolor paper to make the colors of the washi paper stand out more. I cut a panel using a deckled edge die (Honeybee) and then added splatters of two different colors of iridescent watercolors (Altenew). I then heat embossed ‘press me’ on the bottom right corner where I would place the on/off button for the lights. Press me stamp is from Lawn Fawn.
 

I used the Hero Arts September 2018 card kit to cut 3 vases from washi and stamped some foliage with embossing ink and heat embossed with silver embossing powder on black card stock. I die cut the foliage and glued it to the washi vases.
 
 
I lined the vases up on the card front and poked 3 holes where the lights would be. I then turned the panel over and placed the lights on the holes and taped everything down, making sure the on/off button was right below the press me.
 
 

I popped the vases up on many layers of foam tape so the lights would diffuse more. When you press the button:

 
Finally, here is a short video showing me pressing the button and the card lighting up:
 

 

Hope you give these EZ-Lights a try! They are so easy to use.

Also, check out HAI supply! Victor has wonderful embellishments as well as the beautiful washi tapes and papers.

  1. I bought my EZ lights some time ago and when they arrived they sat on my desk for months and I kept looking at them thinking I could never make them work for me. Finally I bit the bullet and tried a card. They are so fun and EASY or EZ to work with and now I want to light up everything. Thank you so much for making this so easy. I think I could be your biggest supporter by telling people how easy they are to use!

  2. that is so super-fun … love how the colors just pop against the black and the lights are awesome.
