Are you YETI to PARRRRRRRTAY?

Hi, everybody! Today, we’re wrapping up release week at Some Odd Girl Stamps with “Yeti”, the second new clear stamp set in the Some Odd Girl Stamps store! Are you YETI to PARTY?
And, I just HAD to use some of the delicious new “Sunshine Sorbet” paper and sequins! I cut along the side of the diamond-patterned paper to create a custom border and had the yeti throwing up some confetti/sequins to get the party started!
The sequins and designer paper are brand new Odds & Ends that were released Monday in the Some Odd Girl Stamps Store
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hope you enjoyed all of the fun things we’ve shared during Release Week!  Make sure to stop by the Some Odd Girl blog for more inspiration with Yeti!

Get Warm and Cozy with Sweater Kaylee!

Hi, everybody! Today I’m sharing a card with “Sweater Kaylee,” the first of two new clear stamp sets releasing this week at Some Odd Girl Stamps
I turned one of the woodgrain-patterned sheets from Some Odd Girl Stamps’ AWESOME new “Sunshine Sorbet” paper pad on its side to make this fun shaker card:
The sequins and wood veneer hexagons are brand new Odds & Ends that were released yesterday in the Some Odd Girl Stamps Store! To make the snowflake accent, I flipped one of the wood veneers over and stamped a snowflake on the smooth side. (By the way, the solid blue bamboo twine is also in the Odds & Ends section of the SOG Store! There are four solid colors and five twist colors of twine to choose from.)
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I’ll be back tomorrow with a project featuring the second new clear stamp set in Some Odd Girl Stamps’ September release, and I hope you’re YETI to party! Make sure to stop by the Some Odd Girl blog for more inspiration with Sweater Kaylee!

Ahoy! New stamps are sailing in to Sweet Stamp Shop!

Ahoy! It’s time for a new release at Sweet Stamp Shop, and we have four fabulous sets arriving in the store today!

I made three cards for this release, and each has a little secret. My first card features mirror stamping with the “Fishy” set:

The fish on the left is stamped like normal, and the fish on the right was mirror stamped. I used the info I found in this tutorial on the Sweet Stamp Shop blog to flip the image. It’s so much easier than I thought it would be!
My second card uses the “Fishy” and “Beach Bum” sets, with a guest appearance from the “Alpha Tabs” set for the crab’s “salty” language. The secret on this card is how I stamped the sun…with the back of the beach ball stamp in the “Beach Bum” set.
I saved the most elaborate surprise for my third card. I wanted to make a treasure chest, but there wasn’t one in the set. I made my own by stamping the clay pot from the “Stuck on This” set twice, using one as the lid and the other as the base. I cut a strip of acetate to open and close the chest. (It’s hidden behind the sequins in the chest and I made an inner layer with the lid to hide the sentiment, and the other half of the acetate.)
Here’s a look at what the card front looks like with the lid closed and with it open:
I used stamps from the “Ahoy” set to create the treasure map corner, for the banner sentiment, and of course, the parrot on the top of the treasure chest. The stamped sand texture is from the “Beach Bum” set. The pirate hat is from the “Too Hip” set, and the fox and birthday stamp are from the “Foxy” set. 
Here’s another look at Sweet Stamp Shop’s August release: “Beach Bum“, “Sail Away Sayings“, “Ahoy” and “Fishy“:

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hope your week is off to a wonderful start!

Some Odd Girl Stamps has the cutest School Supplies!

Hi, everybody! Welcome back to the second day of the new release at Some Odd Girl Stamps!
I have to say, my favorite part of every new school year when I was growing up was buying school supplies! From the cutest pencils, notebooks and folders to the coolest Trapper Keeper binder, I loved picking out everything! I still have a love for school/office supplies even though my school days are long gone!

I’m sure it’s no surprise that I had a blast putting faces on the stamps in this month’s release. Here’s my first card with “School Supplies“:

I also used the A+ stamp from the “Teacher Mae” set…I love how both sets work so well together!
Lucky for me, this set has a happy face, so I can add smiles to the pencil and crayon stamps and create my own happy notebook paper! (Did you notice my happy ruler from yesterday’s post?)

 And why have just one crayon when you can have a whole rainbow of happy colors?

Here’s a peek at the “School Supplies” set; it’s a perfect companion to the new “Teacher Mae” set!

 
You can find more inspiration with “School Supplies” AND “Teacher Mae” at the Some Odd Girl blog, and both of the new clear sets are available NOW in the Some Odd Girl Store!
We’re halfway through July, but there’s still time to link up your Some Odd Girl projects with this month’s Linky Party on the Some Odd Girl blog! All you have to do is link up your latest Some Odd Girl projects for a chance at being featured, or winning some fabulous prizes! (You’ll find the linky tool on the right side of the SOG blog!)
Did you know that Some Odd Girl Stamps now has a Pinterest board for Oddies to pin their creations? You’ll find all of the info on joining the new board on the Some Odd Girl Stamps Facebook group!
Thank you SO MUCH for stopping by today! Hope your week is off to a wonderful start!

Class is in session with Teacher Mae at Some Odd Girl Stamps!

Hi, everybody! It’s time for a new clear stamp release at Some Odd Girl Stamps, and we’re getting a head start on the new school year with “Teacher Mae“, the first of two new sets available today in the Some Odd Girl Stamps Store!
After I colored the main image, I chose one of the sentiments from the set and made a chalkboard, because you can’t have class without one! (And of course, Mae gets a gold star because she’s so wonderful!)
I’m trying to work on different clothing patterns, so I attempted a tweed skirt. I think I’ll use smaller lined pens next time to get a finer pattern.
I also couldn’t resist making a sticky note holder with the ruler stamp in the set. (There’s a little sneak peek at tomorrow’s set…I love that I could put a happy face on the ruler!)

You can find more inspiration with “Teacher Mae” at the Some Odd Girl blog, and both of the new clear sets are available NOW in the Some Odd Girl Store!
Even though we’re in the middle of July, there’s still time to link up your Some Odd Girl projects with this month’s Linky Party on the Some Odd Girl blog! All you have to do is link up your latest Some Odd Girl projects for a chance at being featured, or winning some fabulous prizes! (You’ll find the linky tool on the right side of the SOG blog!)

It’s a magical release at Sweet Stamp Shop!

Well, hello there! Glad you could join me for today’s new release celebration at Sweet Stamp Shop! Our July release is a MAGICAL one, and you’ll soon see why, because I have LOTS of fun stuff to share with you!  I have three cards, starting with this one, which I made with the new “Dragon” clear set:

I also used stamps from the “Cookie Sprinkles” set for the large heart, “Cheeky” for the small heart, and the “Alpha Tabs” set to stamp the custom sentiment.
For my second card, I stamped the stars from the “Enjoy Calligraphy” set with watermark ink on a piece of vellum and heat embossed the design to soften the background paper. I stamped one of the sentiments on black card stock to give it a chalkboard look. 
For my third card, I made a scene with the stars from the “Enjoy Calligraphy” and “Princess” sets, then stamped and heat embossed the sentiment on vellum. 
I drew and colored a hill, then colored and fussy cut the castle to complete the scene. To help line up the castle and flags, I also stamped the castle on the background paper. That way, I didn’t have to worry about cutting the flag poles out, too!
Here’s another look at the new sets in today’s release at Sweet Stamp Shop: “Princess“, “Dragon“, “Enjoy Calligraphy” and “Royal Wish“:
AND, the new “On Cherry Street” kit is being included in today’s release celebration, too!
So, what about the new kits? Here’s some info:
  • No monthly subscription – buy only the kits you like!
  • It’s here to stay (as permanent as any other Sweet Stamp Shop product has been…and if you miss out on July’s kit, there will be more of the same kit in the store in August, along with a new monthly kit)!
  • It’s 100% made in the U.S.A.! From the wood die cuts to the clear stamps to the printed paper, everything in this kit is purchased from small businesses in the United States!
  • Every kit is filled with more than 35 pieces — from an exclusive stamp set found only in the kit, to pocket style cards and wood die cut embellishments, you’ll find so many creative possibilities with each kit!
  • The price of each kit is $15.95 — a great deal in itself!

Tomorrow, the new stamp sets will be available in the Sweet Stamp Shop for $7.95 each, and the kit will sell for $15.95.

New stamps have arrived at Sweet Stamp Shop!

Hi, everybody! It’s time for another new clear stamp release at Sweet Stamp Shop! I have cards with three of the new sets to share with you today, so let’s grab our sleeping bags and kick things off with the “Campout” set:
Now, I’ll be the first to admit the outdoors doesn’t feel so “great” to me. I don’t think I’d go camping unless I had a nice little trailer like this one! I chose pastel colors to go with the retro style of the camper, and whipped up a wedding card. (As an added feature, the camper is mounted on a wobble spring.) Here’s a closer look:
My second card for today’s new release is this fun birthday greeting featuring the “Koala” stamp set:
I paired the Koala Family images with the “Balloons” and the party hat stamp from the “Too Hip” set. The sentiment was created with the “Alpha Tabs” alphabet set. Because the koalas are colored grey, I chose to color the balloons brighter so they gave the card pops of color like the background paper has in its design!
Here’s a closer look at the dimension on the balloons! After coloring, I added some clear dimensional glaze to give them shine and shape:

My third card for today features the new “Condolences” set, paired with the “Elegant Flowers” set. I went with a soft, watercolor look for this card. I know a lot of my crafty friends have a hard time making cards for sad occasions, and I admit, I do, too! Keeping the design simple and the colors soft seems to work well.
Now that you’ve seen all three of my cards, here’s a special treat for you!
