Special Digi Bundles at Some Odd Girl Stamps!

Hi, everybody! With the holidays just around the corner, we’re doing things a little differently at Some Odd Girl Stamps! Instead of a new digi release today, we’re showcasing special themed digi stamp bundles that you’ll find in the Some Odd Girl Stamps Store!
There are four themed bundles this week, each containing four digi stamps. We’ll have four new and different themed bundles next Tuesday. I have two cards to share with you today featuring stamps from the “Holiday” bundle: “Holiday Pup” and “Christmas Tree Mae.”
Here’s my card with “Holiday Pup.” I also used a wood veneer Hexie Dot as an accent.
My card layout was inspired by the current challenge at retro sketches. I turned the sketch and moved the accents to the right of the main image.
Here’s my second card, featuring “Christmas Tree Mae“:
The layout for this card is inspired by deconstructed sketch #179:
I made a standard-sized card instead of a square card, and made the elements in the sketch larger.
Here’s a look at the stamps included in the “Holiday” bundle: “Santa’s Helper Tobie“, “Holiday Pup“, “Christmas Tree Mae” and “Santa’s List Tia.”
Stop by the Some Odd Girl Store to purchase this set or any of the other special bundles! 
Have you hopped with us yet? There’s still time to leave comments and to link up your holiday creations with Some Odd Girl Stamps (new or old) in our special Linky Party! Visit the Some Odd Girl blog for all the details!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Ho! Ho! Ho! It’s the Hol-ODD-Day Blog Hop!

Hello Oddies, welcome to Day 1 of our 3rd Annual Hol-ODD-Day Hop!

hop

We Odd Girls have joined together for a fun event for EVERYONE – not just because you get to hop, but because you get to PARTICIPATE and share your own holiday creations!

We mixed things up a bit to bring you a variety of holiday projects that we hope will inspire you. You can comment on all of the blogs, participate by linking your own below (to be eligible to win, be sure you link to us in your post), and comment throughout the event on other people’s links as well!

And there will be PRESENTS! The hop starts Monday, December 8 and runs through Friday, December 12th. We’ll be announcing 3 winners next Wednesday, December 17th, so you have plenty of time to comment between now and then! You have until midnight on Friday, December 12 to link your projects to our Hol-ODD-Day Hop link party.

Today, all of the Odd Girls have projects to share for the big event, so you can visit their blogs to see what they’ve created for the hop. (You can find the full hop list at the bottom of my post.)

I made ornaments using the Snowflake Ornament cut file. You could also use this file to make photo gift tags or dress up a gift bag! I dressed up the ornaments with some Sorbet Sequins, glitter glue, and some Blue Bamboo twine to hang them up! If you don’t have photos to use, you can substitute your favorite holiday Some Odd Girl digi or clear stamp!

The pictures I used are a few years old, but I made one featuring our dog, Midnight, and another with Scott & me:

Here’s the hop list for our awesome team:

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Remember to comment along the way, and link up your holiday-themed projects using Some Odd Girl stamps (new or old)! We can’t wait to see what you make!

I’m the December Guest Designer at Your Next Stamp!

I’m excited to be designing for Your Next Stamp again as a guest, and I hope you’ll join in on the challenges and new release fun that’s coming up this month! Check out their super-cute stamps in the YNS Store!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope your week is off to a great start!

OH! OH! OH! It’s a HOL-ODD-DAY Hop!

WELCOME to our Hol-ODD-Day Hop!  ‘Tis the season for the Odd Girls to get their craft on, and whip up some fun things just in time for the holidays!   Some Odd Girl is very happy to bring you our annual…

holodddayhop

This year, we are STOKED to bring you some of our gift and decor ideas that we hope will inspire you as we all head into the home stretch!  Today, we HOP!  All you have to do is visit all of the blogs in the hop and leave some love at each stop.

You should have arrived from Anna Sigga’s blog – if so, you’re definitely on the right track! If you need to start at the beginning, CLICK HERE, cause you won’t want to miss a beat!

For my hop project, I altered a metal container by decoupaging some fun holiday papers on the top, and I made a tag with the “HoliDeer” clear set.


Because you can’t have a gift container without adding something SWEET inside, I put together this tag making kit! There are two mini ink pads, blank tags, twine and a stamp set! It would be a great gift for a crafty friend who loves to stamp and color! (Depending on your gift budget, you could also add a few markers or pencils!)
Because birthdays are one of the most common gift-giving occasions, I made some sample tags with the “Birthday Mae” and “Tiny Baker Tia” clear sets. I kept the design simple so there’s room to write on the tag and colored two of the tags so you could get an idea of the finished project.

Needless to say, we have had a TON of fun making our Hol-ODD-Day projects, and we hope you have fun hopping with us!  Ready?  Here’s the hop list!

Suzanne Bier – you’re here!

So hop around, take your time, leave your comments between now and Sunday, December 15th and we’ll have some winners to announce on Monday, the 16th!  There may or may not be a stamp set or two up for grabs.  There may ALSO be (or maybe not!) some of the new Odds & Ends to win!  ANNNND there may even be some extras.  But you’ll have to join us throughout the week to find out!

Now you’re off to Kristy’s blog!  Enjoy the hop, Oddies, and we’ll be showing details of some of the projects throughout the week, so drop by and watch for your bonus chances to win!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hope you enjoy the rest of the fun on our HOL-ODD-DAY hop!

Hugs,

Festive and Fun Cards (and a freebie)!

Hi, crafty friends! Just wanted to stop by today to share a couple of winter and holiday cards with you!

My first card features a freebie from the oh-so-adorable Whimsy and Stars Studio! This FREE tree digi made its debut today on the Whimsy and Stars Studio blog and is available for download until Monday, December 1 at 6 p.m. Eastern Time.

Because it’s a whimsical tree, I went with some not-so-traditional colors in my design. I colored the tree with Copics, and accented the berries and stars with Stickles. I also added some Stickles to make the funky turf in the flowerpot!

Other supplies: patterned paper (SEI Berry Melody), sentiment stamp (aMuse Studio), twine (Trendy Twine – Annie’s Paper Boutique), card stock (white, kraft – Papertrey Ink; Pool Party – Stampin’ Up), Copic markers, sewing machine, Stickles (Star Dust, Cotton Candy), Spellbinders Labels 25.
My second card features “Arctic Friends,” a new stamp set I picked up from Lil’ Inker Designs. It was so fun to color up, and I finally got to use some embellishments I’ve had for a while.
You can’t really see it in the picture, but I added Glossy Accents to the ice that the polar bear is sitting on. Some Stickles were added to the ice cream to make them sparkle.

Other supplies: patterned paper (Echo Park – Winter Wishes), chipboard accent (Crate Paper), twine (Trendy Twine – Annie’s Paper Boutique), ink (Tsukineko Brilliance Graphite Black, SU Night of Navy), brads, sewing machine, Spellbinders Labels 25, foam tape.

Well, that’s all for now! I’ll be back on Sunday with a new Christmas Card Challenge! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs,
