Shine Bright with Lisa

Happy Friday, everyone! Lisa, here, and I'm taking over the blog today a few cards featuring this adorable Shamrock Light Bulb file. There are so many things you can do with this one file. It comes with two light bulbs; the one with the shamrock filament and one is just a plain light bulb. So this post started out as St. Patrick's Day cards but I decided I had to make the "Shine Bright" card. I wanted to show how you can use this for more than just St. Patrick's Day. 

For the shaker card I simply used my Silhouette Sketch Pen and cut the center of the shamrock out. I colored the image, carefully, with Zig Pens, cut acetate to adhere to back of image then added 3D mounting foam to the acetate(backside of light bulb panel), poured the gold sprinkles in, adhered to green cardstock that I attached to a 4.25" x 5.5" card base. I used my Silhouette Sketch Pen to create the sentiment and adhered with 3D mounting foam. Finishing off with three green enamel dots. 

This card was a little more work but not much and so worth it, in my opinion. I just added the sentiment by dragging it to the outline of the light bulb so that it snaps to the outline. Then I adjust the font size to fit the project. Now I did remove the outline of the bulb allowing the text to take its place. I then used a few COPIC markers to add color to the image, added googly eyes, layered it onto a green cardstock panel and then a 4.25" x 5.5" card base. 

For my last card, my favorite, I sized the plain bulb down, copy and pasted them, twisting and turning the bulbs creating a background. I die-cut the "shine" word and stamped the word bright using TH Distress Oxide Inks. Finished off with clear sequins. 
So, there you have it, three cards using one file. And I can see more cards being made in the near future. 

As always, thanks for joining us today!


  1. What a CREATIVE display of cards! I haven't used pens in my Cameo and you are making me want to do so! These cards rock.
