YEEHAW! Cowboy Kody is riding in to the Some Odd Girl store!

Well howdy, everybody! There’s a new cowpoke in town, and he’s riding in to the Some Odd Girl store today! I’m much obliged to share a card that I made with “Cowboy Kody.”
I mixed and matched some retired patterned papers from my stash, and made a custom sentiment by cutting apart some label stickers. I also added some texture to the woodgrain paper with an embossing folder.
Don’t forget to join our blog hop, which runs until October 31st at midnight Eastern, and we’ll announce the winners chosen from the comments left on each participating blog in the hop on the Some Odd Girl blog on Monday, November 3rd. Look at the “treats” you could win!
For the full hop order and all of the hop details, visit the Some Odd Girl blog! Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you’re having a wonderful week so far!

It’s New Digi Tuesday at Some Odd Girl Stamps!

Hi, everybody! It’s time for new digi stamps and cut files to hit the Some Odd Girl Stamps store! 
You’ll find two new digital stamps (“Bandit Wizard” and “TRex“) and two new cut files (“Forest Fold Card” and “Loopy Sentiments vol. 3“) in the store today. My card features “Bandit Wizard“, an adorable critter who will cast a spell on you!
I chose retro sketches #133 for my layout. Because we make our cards a few weeks in advance of each post, I wasn’t able to enter this card in the challenge, but I thought you’d like to see the inspiration behind my design. 
I changed a few things for my layout, like the placement of the buttons and sentiment, and added some twine, but the basic idea’s the same.
Have you sent in your entries for Some Odd Girl Stamps’ “Digi Me” contest? There are only a few days left to get your ideas submitted, and you can find all the details at the Some Odd Girl blog!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hope you had a wonderful weekend and that your week is off to a great start!

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!

Some TWEET new digis have flown in to the Some Odd Girl Stamps store!

Happy Tuesday, everybody! It’s time for some new digis at Some Odd Girl Stamps, and I’m sure you’ll agree, they’re pretty “tweet”!

My card for today features “Birdy” times two, and some speech bubble sentiments from the “Flirty Mae” and “Hey Mae” clear stamp sets:


Before I printed out the digis, I copied and pasted another “Birdy“digi, then flipped the copy to create a scene of two birds chatting with each other, and then colored both birds. I stamped the sentiments and trimmed the panel and added it to the front of the card.

Hope your week is off to a great start! Make sure to stop by the Some Odd Girl blog to see what the other Odd Girls made with “Birdy” and the other new digis, “Cockatoo” and “Birds of Love“! Thank you so much for stopping by today!

There are lots of fun things going on in the Some Odd Girl community on Facebook, including a “Back-to-School” themed contest, inspiring creations from your fellow Oddies, and lots of fun topics for discussion! Hope to see you there!

New Digi Tuesday at Some Odd Girl: Two totally paw-some digis!

Happy Tuesday, everybody! So what do you think of the new clear stamps, paper and embellishments at Some Odd Girl Stamps? If you missed out on any of the excitement, check out my post with pictures of all of the goodies or pop by the Some Odd Girl blog for more gorgeous inspiration!

Because I love the new “Sunshine Sorbet” papers so much, I’m using them again today for the new digis! Seriously, you’ll love them, too! They are thicker than other 6″ x 6″ paper pads, and have vibrant colors that are perfect for tons of paper crafting projects! The back of each piece is solid white, and is of card stock thickness, so you can definitely save your scraps or stamp on the back!

Today’s first card features the new “Tia and Puppy” digi with a sentiment from the “Puppy Love Mae” clear set, and of course, “Sunshine Sorbet” paper and the matching sequins.


My second card features “Puppy Love“, the second adorable digi being released today at Some Odd Girl Stamps! I kept my design super simple so I could focus on the digi. The speech bubble is from the “I Do” clear set. 

To keep the look subtle, I stamped it on a scrap of white card stock, then stamped again on my card front without re-inking. To make the heart accent, I used the first stamped image as a template to fill in the heart with some glitter glue and gloss medium. When it was dry, I trimmed the heart and adhered it in its spot on the card front. The sentiment can be found in the “Flirty Mae” clear stamp set.


Now that we’re halfway through September, there’s still time to link up your latest creations with Some Odd Girl Stamps at the Some Odd Girl blog! Each month kicks off a new Linky Party, and there’s never a theme; we just want to see what you’ve made with Some Odd Girl Stamps! You’ll find the link tool on the right-hand side of the blog…and you never know…your creation might be featured in one of our weekly spotlights!

If you loved everything in the September release and gotta have it all, you can save with this special bundle, available in the Some Odd Girl Store for a limited time!


You’ll save more than $5.00 with this special limited-time offer, which includes the 6×6 Sunshine Sorbet pad, Hexie Dot wood veneer, Sorbet Sequins, Sweater Kaylee & Yeti 4×3 Clear Stamp sets all in one bundle.

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

Violin Gwen is LIVE at Some Odd Girl Stamps!

Hi, everybody! It’s new digi Tuesday at Some Odd Girl Stamps, and we’re wrapping up this month’s digi releases with another new Gwen digi! I’d like to introduce “Violin Gwen“, who is ready for her solo performance:
I used some elegant papers from my stash (“Capella” and “Serenade” 6×6 pads by Basic Grey) with gold accents added with the twine, a piece of gold patterned transparency, the heat-embossed sentiment (from the “Make A Statement” clear set), and I heat embossed a gold border on a plain wood button. I also used a gold metallic pen on the border of one of the papers.
I think the pleats in her dress came out okay. One of my goals is to get more practice with pleats and clothing folds and layers. I’m not sure if an online class would be for me, but it is something I’m researching.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! You’ll seriously want to keep up with Some Odd Girl Stamps on the blog, in the Facebook community and through the newsletter…we have some AMAZING new stuff coming up this month, and you won’t want to miss a minute!

Ballerina Gwen makes her debut with Some Odd Girl Stamps!

Hi, crafty friends! It’s New Digi Tuesday at Some Odd Girl Stamps! We have one new digital stamp to showcase today, so without further ado, I’d like to present the ever-graceful “Ballerina Gwen“. Doesn’t she look ready for her solo?


I heat embossed a sentiment from the “First Dance Mae” clear set on vellum. It works perfectly with Ballerina Gwen, don’t you think? The paper has been in my stash for some time now (it’s Basic Grey’s “Serenade” 6×6 paper pad). I added some glitter glue to her dress and wood star accents to complete the card.

We’re halfway through August, but there’s still time to link up your latest ODD creation to the Linky Party at the Some Odd Girl blog! You’ll find the linky tool on the right-hand side of the blog…and your creation might be featured in one of our weekly spotlights!

Hope your week is off to a great start! I have a lot of non-crafty stuff going on this week; looks like it’ll be a busy one! Make sure to stop by the Some Odd Girl blog to see what the other Odd Girls have made with the new digis! Thank you so much for stopping by today!
