Pear Blossom Press Power Pack Kit Blog Hop

Hey there!! Welcome to the Pear Blossom Press Power Pack Kit Hop!

What great fun these power packs are. I thought they would be really difficult to put together, but actually, the kits are super easy to use. I recorded my setup for these cards and you can find the video below. It’s a real privilege to receive this kit from Amanda at Pear Blossom Press!

Let’s Dive In

The Power Pack Kit has the lead role in this post, but I paired it with an incredible stamp set from Concord and 9th, some amazing inks from Catherine Pooler, some beautiful cardstock from Gina K and Cardstock Warehouse, and some other supplies you will find in the grid below.

Card 1 Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. To begin, I created an A2-sized card base and put it aside.

  2. Then, I trimmed some strips of Gina K’s cardstock in Sweet Mango and Blue Raspberry.

  3. I trimmed down an A2-sized panel taking off a quarter inch off one side and one end. Then, I adhered the colored cardstock strips at an angle to the front of the panel with double-sided adhesive.

  4. Next, I stamped out the base of the bulb image from the Shine On Stamp set from Concord & 9th with some Midnight Ink. Then I die cut it out with the coordinating die.

  5. Earlier, I had stamped and die cut the light bulb image from the same set on some Parchment Paper from Cardstock Warehouse.

  6. I adhered them both to the front of the panel. Then I poked a hole in the panel with a paper piercing tool where I wanted the light to shine through.

  7. Next, I set up the Power Pack circuit on the front of the card base (see the video below), being careful to place the light under the hole I made.

  8. Finally, I popped up the panel on some foam tape over the card base. I wrote, “Push Here” in white gel ink on the bulb base. I also glued down the end of the bulb image with a Zig Glue Pen.


Card 2 Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. For the second card, I started by stamping out the Hero Arts Star Light Background Stamp onto a 6 x 6 piece of cardstock. I inked up the stamp with Flirty Fuchsia, Grape Crush and Black Jack Inks from Catherine Pooler.

  2. Then, I trimmed down the panel to 4 x 5.25 inches and pierced it several times.

  3. Next, i built the circuit of the Power Pack Kit onto the front of a black A2 card base.

  4. Then, i popped up the panel over the Power Pack with some foam tape.

  5. For the sentiment, I die cut the Shine shadow out of some Grape Jelly cardstock and stamped the shadow image for the word, Shine, with some Grape Crush ink.

  6. Next, i die cut the word Shine out of some Neenah Solar White Cardstock and adhered it to the from of the Shine Shadow Die Cut with some Gina K Connect Glue.

  7. To finished off the card, I heat embossed the words, “It’s Your Time To”, on some black cardstock with Alabaster embossing powder from Brutus Monroe. I adhered them all to the front of the panel and pressed the button for three days straight! :D hahaha… It’s a lot of fun.
