Two new digis at Some Odd Girl Stamps!

Hi, everybody! I have two cards to share with you today that feature the brand new digi stamps at Some Odd Girl!

My first card features the second winning digi from the recent “Digi Me” contest, “Wheelchair Kaylee“, which was suggested by Ann Meyer. Ann is guest designing along with us for this release, so be sure and stop by the Some Odd Girl blog today to see the cards she made, and find out more about the inspiration behind her winning idea!

Here’s my card with “Wheelchair Kaylee”:


Our second new digi today is “Girlfriends Kaylee and Mae“. Don’t they look like they’re having fun and sharing secrets?


Be sure to stop by the Some Odd Girl blog for more info and inspiration on today’s digital stamp release! And, you can find the new digis in the recently re-designed Some Odd Girl Store!
Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you’re staying warm and that your week is off to a great start! We’re expecting a bunch of snow today, so it’s perfect weather for crafting!

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!

Your Next Stamp – New Release Preview

Hi, everybody! It’s getting close to new release time at Your Next Stamp, so I have a sneak peek of “Aspen“, one of the new clear stamp sets being released at YNS in December:
I created a little scene on my card. To make the water, I used Glossy Accents over the patterned paper. I cut an arch of white card stock and added glitter glue to create the snow.
Here’s another look at the card front, so you can see that she’s attached her to the card with some foam tape for dimension. The snowflakes are accented with Sparkly Teal Gumdrops.
Be sure to come back tomorrow, when we kick off the December release with a blog hop! You could be one of the lucky winners of a gift certificate to the YNS Store! And, I’ll have a special sale code for your next purchase at Your Next Stamp
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have some crafty time coming up this weekend!

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!

The new digis at Some Odd Girl Stamps are ready for their close-up!

Hi, everybody! I hope you’re ready for some new Some Odd Girl digi stamps, because I have two cards to share with you today! We’re continuing our “portrait” theme for this month’s releases, and I know you’re going to love these! Both of the new stamps are available in the Some Odd Girl Store right now!
First up is “Coffee Piper,” paired with a sentiment from the “Sweater Kaylee” clear stamp set:
If you’re looking for a gal who’s retro glam, you’ve found her! “Beehive Mae” is the perfect example of fabulous, and I think that Sunshine Sorbet papers are a fabulous choice for this card! The sentiment is from the brand new “Wink Mae” clear stamp set.

You’ll find more inspiration with “Coffee Piper” and “Beehive Mae” at the Some Odd Girl blog!
I had a post on the Some Odd Girl blog yesterday with some inspiration on making this mini note card set with the Sunshine Sorbet 6×6 pad and the new “Garden Gwen” clear stamp set:
I’d love it if you stopped by the Some Odd Girl blog to check out my project! Thanks for stopping by my blog today! Hope you’re having a wonderful week so far!
