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!

Are you ready to PARRRRR-TAY with the newest digis at Some Odd Girl?

Happy Tuesday, everybody! It’s new digi release day at Some Odd Girl, and my card for today features the cutest party animal on the beach or in the ocean…meet “Party Crab“!
After coloring him up, I drew in some sand and added some Distress Stickles to give the sand some texture. Glossy Accents give the balloons some extra shine, and you can find the sentiment in the “Party Girl Gwen” clear stamp set! 
Did you notice that Orange Bamboo Twine? You can find it in the “Odds & Ends” section of the Some Odd Girl Store! It’s thicker than the baker’s twine you might be familiar with, and I love the pop of bright orange against the navy card stock!
And, I couldn’t resist coloring today’s second new digi, “Mermaid Queen“! I picked one of the sentiments from the “Under the Sea Mae” clear set to go with the image.
So there you have it! Two new digis for oceans of coloring fun!

Drunken Stampers #114: Finding Nemo

Happy Saturday! We’re on the second challenge of a new term at Drunken Stampers, so it’s time for me to post a card with my new team, the “Bahama Mamas”! This week, we’re going under the sea for some fishy inspiration…

Here’s my card, featuring “Marina” from Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps:

Other supplies: sentiment stamp (“Kimmie’s Mermaid Sentiments” – Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps) Stickles, embossing folder (Sizzix/Tim Holtz), foam tape, patterned paper (“Happy Day” mini pad – My Mind’s Eye), glitter brads, twine, rhinestones, Copic markers.

To play along with our challenge, here’s what you need to know:

  • For this term, our challenges are focused on movies and it will be an EITHER-OR-BOTH challenge. You can EITHER use the movie in the title as inspiration OR use the suggested theme or item. You may want to even kick it up a notch and use BOTH! We can’t wait to see your creativity with these challenges!
  • When you have finished your card or project, visit the Drunken Stampers blog and click on the link for “Linky Tools” (it will open a separate window) and add your blog link, gallery link, etc.
  • Please add the link directly to your project (any generic blog links will be deleted from the list) then please leave us a comment to let us know. (If Linky Tools isn’t working or is just misbehaving, please leave a comment at the bottom of the challenge post with the direct link to your card) 
  • You have until Friday, February 15th at 11:59pm PST to post your link for this challenge.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Visit the Drunken Stampers blog to see what the rest of the “Bahama Mamas” created for this challenge! We can’t wait to see what you’ll create!
