Jessica’s Beautiful Balloon Sketch Card

The Card Sketch Challenge will be open until this Sunday, April 19th at 11:59PM ET. There is still time to enter your projects! We can’t wait to see where your creativity takes you!

Good morning! Jess here with a card for our current Card Sketch challenge! For my first card this month I followed the sketch pretty closely so this time I wanted to take a slightly looser approach! 🙂

To start I die-cut balloons from Party Balloons with Lawn Fawn cardstock in Guava, Raspberry, and Mermaid. I also die-cut two clouds from Spring Showers with Pixie Dust Sparkle cardstock. I added a few accents with a white paint pen and then set those aside while I worked on the rest of the card.

Next I blended distress oxide inks in Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, and Blueprint Sketch over the Cloudy Stencil to create a cloudy sky! I let that dry for a few minutes while I tied Silver Sparkle twine around my balloons. I also die-cut the sentiment from Scripty Hello three times from Black Licorice cardstock and adhered them together. Then I adhered my balloons and clouds to the stenciled panel with foam mounting tape. I tucked the balloon tails around my sentiment and then adhered it with foam tape as well. Finally I knotted the twine and trimmed off the ends to finish the card!

And that’s it! You have one more weekend to get crafty and I can’t wait to see what you’ll create! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fantastic weekend!
Jess

Now let’s see how our amazing Design Team was inspired by the card sketch!

Caly featured Say What? Spring Critters in her pretty close version of the Sketch! She used Outside In Stitched Circles and a sentiment from Simply Sentiments! How cute is the Hello Sunshine Remix paper peeking through the circle windows!

Franci chose to follow the sketch more loosely! She used the placement of the images from Butterfly Kisses as her interpretation of the sketch! For the sentiment she used a fun one from Ready Set Shake!

For her Sketch design, Joyce created cute little Oh Gnome! scenes in the windows of the Foursquare Backdrop: Portrait!

Karin switched up the the sketch a bit by using Heart Shaker Gift Tag to create the grid design! The cute Chirpy Chirp Chirp chicks are perfect on this Easter design!

For her adorable Easter card, Samantha used Scalloped Circle Stackables to follow the sketch! The cute bunnies and baskets are from Easter Before ‘n Afters!

Jessica‘s beautiful sketch design combines dies from Shadow Box Card Rainbow Add-On and Spring Showers to remind us to look for rainbows! The sentiment is from Rain or Shine Before ‘n Afters. She used the stitched circle from the Magic Iris to assemble the little weather vignettes but you could use any stitched circle die set!

Christy‘s card is so bright and happy! She used A Bug Deal to fill the windows of the Foursquare Backdrop: Portrait! For the sentiment she combined a phrase from A Bug Deal with Finley’s ABCs!

Samantha went for a more abstract look for the sketch design! She used the Outside In Stitched Cloud Stackables and the little speech bubble in place of the circles! Her adorable card also features Super Star as well as mice from You’re Just My Type and Love Poems!

Jenn‘s card is a festive design in honor of Mister Harley’s birthday! Her card features all three of her cats with images from Meow You Doin’! She also used images from some of our birthday mini sets: confetti from Year Nine, balloon from Year Four and the sentiment from Year Two!

We will share Design Team inspiration for you over the next 2 weeks and we’ll announce our Featured Fawnatics and random winner for Challenge 73 tomorrow!
