Snow Fun Tia is NEW at Some Odd Girl!

Hi, everybody! As temperatures are getting warmer, and the snow is starting to thaw, we’re wrapping up winter this month at Some Odd Girl stamps with a new digi release! 
Snow Fun Tia is the first of two new digis being released this month at Some Odd Girl. I made a card with her today, but I bet she’d be a perfect accent on any scrapbooking layouts you’re planning using your winter photos! 
I made the snow effect with white Liquid Applique’, which puffs up when you use a heat tool. I like that it gives a little touch of dimension to snowy scenes.

New Digi Tuesday at Some Odd Girl Stamps!

Hi, everybody! Hope your week is off to a great start! Since it’s Tuesday, that means I have a project to share with you featuring a brand-new digi at Some Odd Girl Stamps!  
The fairy digis and clear stamp sets are super popular, since we see so many fabby creations with them in our Facebook community, our monthly Linky Party on the blog and on our Oddies Project Board on Pinterest! I know this one will be super popular, too! Meet “Petal Fairy“:
Isn’t she gorgeous? I colored her to match some retired papers from my stash, and heat-embossed a sentiment from the “Make A Statement” clear set to match the frame on the card front.
And since we’re on the subject of new digis, did you see the new contest that kicked off yesterday at Some Odd Girl Stamps?
I’m sure you have a wish list of digis that you’d love to see in the Some Odd Girl Stamps lineup (I know I do). With the “Digi Me” contest, your idea might come to life as a new digital stamp for Some Odd Girl!
You can find all of the details on the contest at the Some Odd Girl blog, including some OUT OF THIS WORLD examples from the super-creative Odd Girls!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! 

You’ll HEART today’s new Gwen digi at Some Odd Girl Stamps!

Hi everybody! I know the new clear release at Some Odd Girl Stamps is making your heart skip a beat, but there’s one more newbie that you’re sure to love…meet “I Heart U Gwen“, the new digi being released today!
I couldn’t let her get lost in the excitement of the clear release, so this post is just for her! Here’s my take:
To create the sentiment, I chose a stamp from the “Flirty Mae” clear set and a wood veneer heart from our friends at Freckled Fawn! I also used some delicious Blue Bamboo Twine from the Odds & Ends section of the Some Odd Girl Store!

Digi Release Tuesday at Some Odd Girl Stamps!

Happy Tuesday, everybody! I’m back with a couple of cards featuring this week’s new digital stamp release at Some Odd Girl Stamps
This week’s release is near and dear to my heart because it’s an idea that I submitted to Kristy a few months ago! My husband is into history, particularly the Crusades and Renaissance periods. He is part of a few re-enactment groups that get together across the country during the year, and even has his own suit of armor!
I’m always on the lookout for knight-related stamps that I can use to make cards for him, so when Kristy asked for stamp ideas in the Some Odd Girl Facebook group, my first instinct was to suggest a knight in shining armor, and I was thrilled when I saw that he was being made into a digi stamp!
Here’s my first card, which features another one of my pocket scrapbooking cards that I made with Some Odd Girl digis! It’s more of a close-up of “Knight Kody“, and I also used one of the new digital “Knight Sentiments” on the card.
I had a bit of fun with this next card, because it’s the one I made for Scott for his birthday. You also get a better view of the full “Knight Kody” image! He LOVED it, and keeps it on his bedside table. I managed to borrow it while he was at work to take a picture for my blog post.

I resized the “Sweater Pup” digi stamp and colored it to match our dog, who also makes an appearance on each birthday card that I make for Scott. I drew the paw print on the sweater to make it look like he’s wearing a tunic. The sentiment is from the “Big Wishes Mae” clear stamp set.

It’s Digi Release Day at Some Odd Girl!

Hi, everybody! Hope your week is off to a good start! I’ve been doing a lot of coloring, and am trying to work on shading and light sources. Even though I’ve been through both of the Copic certification classes, there’s still so much to learn!
Images like the “Grands” digis at Some Odd Girl are great for practicing shading techniques. For today’s card, I worked on creating more dimension in the face and the clothing. The main image, “Grandpa Feeds the Ducks“, is one of two new digis in the Some Odd Girl store:
Because the paper was so bright and kind of busy, I went with a softer mat panel under the main images. I didn’t want to make it plain white because of the ducks, so I chose a light blue woodgrain pattern from my stash. I also made a custom accent by stamping a sentiment from the “Make A Statement” clear set on a piece of adhesive cork.
Did you have a chance to stop by the Some Odd Girl blog yesterday to check out my inspiration post? I made a felt coffee sleeve, stamped a few images from my Some Odd Girl clear stamps onto pieces of felt, then stitched them to decorate the sleeve!
Here’s a look at the front of the sleeve:

Football Tia makes a touchdown at SOG!

Hey everybody! Just popping in today to share a card that I made with one of the two new digis released today at Some Odd Girl! Here’s “Football Tia“:
Since my husband is a San Francisco 49ers fan and I follow the New Orleans Saints, I couldn’t decide which team colors to use…so I colored her up in some fierce hot pink and black gear! Maybe she’s playing Powder Puff Football?
My card layout is inspired by CAS(E) This Sketch! #53:
