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!

New Digi Tuesday at Some Odd Girl Stamps: Welcome, Piper!

Happy Tuesday, everybody! Are you ready for the new digital stamps at Some Odd Girl Stamps? We’re continuing the summer and tropical themes this week with the first digi featuring Piper, the newest member of the Some Odd Girl Stamps family. Here’s “Mermaid Piper“, isn’t she gorgeous?
I took my time coloring this image, and I love how it turned out! I wanted to make Piper the focus of my tag, so I kept it pretty simple with some photo-realistic sky paper and some hand-cut waves. I heat embossed a sentiment from the “Make a Statement ” clear stamp set on vellum, and finished off the tag with a star sequin, a shell from the “Under the Sea Mae ” clear set, a handmade cork reinforcement and some funky net ribbon from my stash.
My second card features “Sea Turtle“, the newest digi critter swimming in to Some Odd Girl Stamps! I used some nautical-themed papers and my go-to sand effect, which is a thin layer of Distress Stickles (Antique Linen) over a strip of torn kraft card stock.

Now that we’ve flipped the calendar to August, don’t forget that there’s a new Linky Party kicking off at the Some Odd Girl blog! There’s never a theme for this; we just want you to link 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 digis!

Take a trip to the tropics with the new digis at Some Odd Girl Stamps!

Well, hello there, everybody! It’s Tuesday, so you know what that means…new digis at Some Odd Girl Stamps! We have a tropical theme this week, starting with “Hula Mae”! I loved coloring her, because I got to practice more tanned skin tones and black hair!
To make the background, I chose a journaling card that would work for the sky and punched a circle for the sun. Then, I stamped two rows of waves from the “Under the Sea Mae” clear stamp set. The sand was made with my usual technique of tearing a strip of kraft card stock followed by a thin layer of Distress Stickles (Antique Linen) on the kraft card stock.
This next card is dear to my heart. As soon as I saw that we had “Jellyfish” as our second new digi for this week, I wanted to do something fun with them. One of them looks like he’s saying HI, but I wasn’t sure what to do with the other. I love the sentiment, but needed a way to make one of the jellyfish funny. Lucky for me, the pack of stickers also had a mustache that was perfect!
I can’t stop smiling whenever I look at this card! It reminds me of fun times with my pal Thanh. Here’s one of the pictures we took at the Elmer’s booth at CHA this past January:
WOOD you like to be inspired by some fabulous creations combining Some Odd Girl Stamps and ARC Crafts‘ wood veneers? All this week, Some Odd Girl Stamps is partnering with ARC Crafts for an awesome event! Pop over to the Some Odd Girl blog for all the fun! We were BLOWN AWAY by the versatility of their wood veneer products, and I know you will be, too!

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 Stamps!

Happy Tuesday, everybody! It’s time for a new digital stamp release at Some Odd Girl Stamps, and this week, we’re glad to welcome “Best Friends Tobie and Tia“!
Because the main image has both a boy and a girl, I picked some paper that was more neutral in pattern but still had some girly elements to it. These are from Basic Grey’s 6×6 “Mon Ami” paper pad designed by Kelly Purkey.
You’ll find “Best Friends Tobie and Tia” NOW in the Some Odd Girl Stamps Store! For more digi stamp release day inspiration, stop by the Some Odd Girl blog!
