I’m back on the Some Odd Girl Stamps Team!

Hi, everybody! I can finally let you in on some news I’ve been waiting to share…I’m going to be on the Some Odd Girl team for another year! WOOHOO! We’re gearing up for what’s going to be another AH-MAY-ZING term, and you’ll love what we’re working on!
Today, I’m sharing my favorite project from the past term. You may remember the “Daffodil Fairy” digital stamp, which was released in mid-February:
It was so hard to pick my favorite project, but I kept going back to this little cutie. She makes me smile, and I’m pretty pleased with how the shading came out on her flower and dress. And, I love the paper collection that I used on the card! (You can find all of the details on this card at my original post.)
What’s new this time around is that Some Odd Girl will have two Design Teams, one for Clear Stamps and one for Digital Stamps! I’m pleased to say that I’ll be sharing projects with both the clear and digital stamps this term, and bringing you more tutorials and inspiration, too!
You’ll also want to join us next week as we kick off Clear Stamp Release Week at Some Odd Girl! (And, I hear that there will also be a few new digi stamps in the store on Tuesday)! See you then!

A FAIRY wonderful digi release at Some Odd Girl!

Hi, everybody! Can I just say that I’m SO over winter? We got pummeled with snow late last week, and while I have experience driving and walking in it, the “fun” of it wore off a long time ago!

Because I’m looking forward to Spring (and I’m sure you are, too), I’m sharing two cards that I made with the newest digi stamps at Some Odd Girl! Both of the images and cards make me smile and put me in a Spring-time frame of mind!

First up is “Daydreaming Fairy“:
Some Odd Girl supplies: digital stamp (“Daydreaming Fairy”) Other supplies: patterned paper (American Crafts/Dear Lizzy), washi tape (We R Memory Keepers – yellow, orange, blue; Little B – gold lace), rub-on letters (American Crafts/Pebbles), circle punch, assorted Copic markers, Stickles glitter glue.

And next is “Daffodil Fairy“:

Some Odd Girl supplies: digital stamp (“Daffodil Fairy”), clear stamp (“Sunny Mae“); Other supplies: patterned paper (“Park Bench” 6×6 pad – Fancy Pants Designs), Assorted Copic markers, Stickles glitter glue, opaque white marker. 

Can you tell that I spent lots of time on the shadows and shading? I’m really trying to improve my technique with pleats and shading and light. I’ve found the best way to get better is to practice! And, there are so many awesome technique videos out there, and I definitely look them up when I’m stumped! (Kristy has lots of live color along videos on the Some Odd Girl UStream channel!)

The layouts for both cards were inspired by the current Deconstructed Sketch (#138):

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope I brought you some sunshine with these cards…and I hope you have a wonderful week! Don’t forget, there’s still time to show us your mad misting or masking skills (or both)! Make sure to link up your entry at the SOG blog!

And, in case you haven’t heard, we’ve changed from the old ning community to a new group on Facebook…there are lots of fans chatting and sharing their Oddest creations already, so make sure you get in on the fun ASAP!
