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! 

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!


SOG Clear Release: Fairy in Flight!

Happy Wednesday, everybody! We’re on the final day of features for the clear stamp release at Some Odd Girl! Today’s featured stamp is “Fairy In Flight“:
She’s a blast to color up! I’m really trying to work on shadows and highlights, and I am pretty happy with how she came out! The highlights would be a bit more “real” if I hadn’t picked the paper with the sun on the left side! 
To make the clouds, I stamped some white felt with the stamps in this set, then cut them out, flipped them over and added them to my card.
Don’t forget, we have a new challenge on the blog this month…show us your mad misting or masking skills (or both)! Get all the details and link up your entry at the SOG blog!

SOG Clear Release: Flutter Fairy

Well, hello there, Oddies! I hope you had a wonderful weekend and are ready for some magical inspiration from Some Odd Girl! It’s release week, and we have some new fairies to feature who will be casting a spell on you!
Our first preview is “Flutter Fairy”, the first of three clear stamp sets being released this week! The set comes with the main fairy image, two butterfly stamps, and two sentiments! Here’s my take:
I’ll confess: my favorite color is purple, but I don’t craft a lot with it for some reason. I stamped the tag first, and heat embossed a pattern with the two butterfly stamps that are included with the set. I made an ombre background with three different colors of ink, and wiped off the excess.
Then, I colored the fairy to match, fussy cut her out, attached her to the tag with foam tape, and added some sparkly details to her dress and wings. Finally, I heat embossed the sentiment, border punched the bottom, and attached it to the tag.
We’ll have a new clear set to preview tomorrow, and will also be showcasing some new digis in the SOG Store! Make sure you stop by again tomorrow to check out all the gorgeousness!
And, we’re still in the process of moving our community from the ning group to our new Facebook group! There’s already lots of chat and gorgeous inspiration from our DT and your fellow Oddies, so if you haven’t joined in the fun, pop on over and get started!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I appreciate all of you! Hope you have a fantastic week!


It’s Friday! Here’s some fun from YNS!

Happy Friday! I’m stopping in today to share my card for Your Next Stamp’s Fun Friday! Our theme this month is “Congratulations and Celebrations”!

I chose YNS’s  fairy sweet “Mandi” to celebrate with this week! Her wings got a little extra sparkle from some Stickles that I added after coloring:

Other supplies: patterned paper (“Springtime”/”Jack and Jill” mini pad – My Mind’s Eye), twine (“Berry” Trendy Twine), Spellbinders small circle and lacey circles dies, sewing machine, Copic markers, button, glitter brads, foam tape.
