It’s New Digi Tuesday at Some Odd Girl!

Hi, everybody! Now that Kristy and the Some Odd Girl staff are back from another successful Winter CHA show, New Digi Tuesday has returned! 
I wasn’t able to attend the show this year, and I missed seeing my crafty friends and getting peeks at all of the new craft products! I’m hoping to make it to the 2016 show, though!
What makes this month’s Some Odd Girl digi releases so special is that the winners of the recent “Digi Me” contest get to see their ideas come to life AND they’re guest designing with us!
First up is contest winner Sara Schumann‘s “Fighter Gwen” digi. Here’s my card with Sara’s winning idea:
You can find all of the background on Sara’s inspiration, and the cards she made with this digi, at the Some Odd Girl blog!
Our second new digi being released today isn’t a contest winner, but it certainly fits in with Some Odd Girl Stamps’ quirky style! Let’s give a big “ROAR” to “Tiger Piper“:

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Be sure to join us at the Some Odd Girl blog and our Facebook group as we celebrate Some Odd Girl’s 5th birthday this week!
Next week’s digi release will feature the second winner of Some Odd Girl’s Digi Me Contest…you won’t want to miss out on all of the fun and inspiration! See you then!

Two new portrait-style digis debut at Some Odd Girl Stamps!

Hi, everybody! I have two cards to share with you today, and both of the cards feature new Some Odd Girl digital stamps! Both of the new digi stamps are available in the Some Odd Girl Store right now!
I really took my time coloring “Floral Kaylee” so I could practice shadows on her face and on the flowers. I also matched the colors in the image to the Sunshine Sorbet papers I used for the background and the frame. (The strip of polka dot paper is a scrap from my stash.) The sentiment on the card is from the “Geisha Kaylee” clear stamp set.

I decided on a bright color scheme for my second card, which features “Tropical Piper” and a sentiment from the “Garden Gwen” clear stamp set:

I love coloring Piper’s curly hair! (My technique is a simple one: a mixture of squiggles and dots in three or four shades of a similar color.) 

Did you notice that I altered a Hexie Dot with a gold glitter gel pen? You can see more ideas and a tutorial on heat embossing Hexie Dots on this tutorial post that I wrote for the Some Odd Girl blog!

There’s still time to get in on the November Linky Party on the Some Odd Girl blog! To join in the fun, just add your latest Some Odd Girl creations to the party with the link tool! You can also share with us in the Some Odd Girl Facebook Group! You can also find Some Odd Girl Stamps oGoogle+TwitterInstagram and Pinterest (#SomeOddGirl)!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hope you’re staying warm if it’s chilly where you are! 

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!

Some Odd Girl Stamps "Digi Me" Contest!

Hi, everybody! Did you see the AWESOME new “Digi Me” contest kicking off today at Some Odd Girl Stamps? You’re going to LOVE this one!
Some Odd Girl Stamps is looking for YOUR ideas for new digis! If you’re part of the Some Odd Girl Facebook community, you’ve probably seen a list with different digi ideas, and some of them have been made into some FABULOUS digis! This contest kicks things up a notch…I’ll show you what I mean!
The only required info: character, pose, and outfit. If you want to add more to it, go for it! We want to see creativity in your entries…you can make a photo collage like I did, have a link or picture list or if you can’t find the pose and outfit you’re looking for online, take a picture of yourself and write up the rest!
For example, my idea is “Detective Kody”, so I put together this photo collage. The character is inspired by Benedict Cumberbatch’s portrayal of Sherlock Holmes in the BBC TV series “Sherlock,” so I used photos of the character that I found online to help illustrate my idea.
The contest kicks off today, September 29 and runs through October 23. You can enter three times on each platform, including the Some Odd Girl blog, Instagram, Pinterest, and Facebook. All entries must be publicly visible or they won’t qualify for the contest. You can find the full details at the Some Odd Girl blog, including which hashtags to use on your entry.
We’ll be picking one winner per platform. Each winner will be a guest on the day their digi is released (with the digi in advance to make something for the blog post), and will receive a $20 gift certificate to the Some Odd Girl Shop!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Grab your thinking cap, and get cracking on your entry! We can’t wait to see your entries!

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!

It’s New Digi Tuesday at Some Odd Girl!

Happy Tuesday, crafty friends! I have two cards to share with you today that feature the new digi stamp and sentiment cut file at Some Odd Girl Stamps!

It looks like the newest resident of Odd Land is enjoying some retail therapy! Say hello to “Shopping Piper“! I chose a sentiment from the “Hey Mae” clear stamp set, and the heart speech bubble comes from the “I Do” clear stamp set.

You may recognize the “Party Crab” digi stamp from a recent release, and I chose one of the new “Chill Sentiment Cut Files” to go along with him:
We’re almost halfway through August, so don’t forget about the Linky Party at the Some Odd Girl blog! There’s no special theme or requirements, other than you linking up your latest ODD creations so we can 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 your creation might be featured in one of our weekly spotlights!
Thank you so much for stopping by today! Hope your week is off to a great start! I’ve been fighting off allergies but that won’t stop me from getting things done this week! Make sure to stop by the Some Odd Girl blog to see what the other Odd Girls have made with the new digi and cut file!
