Add-on Week, Part 2

Add-on Sketch #10

You can download and print this sketch by clicking on the add-on sketches link found under the "printable sketches" tab on the right sidebar.


“Baby Canvas” by Melissa Elsner
Supplies - Patterned Paper: Lily Bee Design; Cardstock: American Crafts, Core'dinations; Alpha Stickers: Basic Grey; Paint: Craft Smart; Spray Ink: Clearsnap; Glaze: Glossy Accents by Ranger Industries; Adhesive: Helmar; Pen: Uniball Signo; Electronic Cutter: Silhouette SD; Canvas, Jute: Unknown

Variation #1 - I added an inch in measurement to all dimensions of the largest and medium balloons and kept the original measurements for my small balloon to create three different sizes.


Variation #2 - I chose to use solid cardstock and use multiple colors for each balloon to make my simple design more colorful.

"It's Your Day" card by Jill Sarginson
Supplies Used - Cardstock: Bazzill Basics; Patterned Paper: Pink Paislee (Hometown collection); Tools: corner rounder, Creative Memories star punches; Ink: Vibrance; Stickers: Simple Stories; Adhesive: Pop dots

To make the balloons, I simply googled "balloon template" in Google images, selected one I liked, resized and printed and then used it as a template to cut the balloons out of cardstock. I pop-dotted the
two balloons on top and then stitched the strings on.

Another great day of inspiration.

Melissa - love your choice of colours. So bright and cheery. The detail on the balloons with the white pen is awesome.

Jill - another fabulous card. You are the best at them. I love how you used the twine to do the balloon strings. The layering of the stars is awesome too.
