Check out what’s new at Some Odd Girl Stamps!

Hey, hey everybody! Have you seen what’s being released this week at Some Odd Girl Stamps? In addition to the clear stamp release, you’ll find a gorgeous “Sunshine Sorbet” 6″ x 6″ paper pad, wood hexie dots and a coordinating sequin pack!
As you can see, the papers are super fun and work so well with the Some Odd Girl clear and digi stamps! And, although you can’t see in the photo, the papers are nice and thick. 
Each sheet has bold geometric patterns on one side, and is solid white on the other. Each 6″ x 6″ Sunshine Sorbet paper pad has two sheets of 12 coordinating designs.
Here’s a card I made with several of the papers and the “Hipster Mae” clear set:
You can also get a peek at the sequins and wood hexies in my card photo. The hexies come in a more natural style, offering up lots of possibilities for your projects! You might have noticed that I altered a few of the hexies with brown ink to make custom accents for my card.
Here’s a photo of all the new Odds & Ends, which hit the Some Odd Girl Stamps Store TODAY!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I’ll have more to share with you tomorrow, when we feature the first of TWO new clear stamp sets making their debut! For more delicious inspiration with the Sunshine Sorbet paper pad and the rest of the new goodies, stop by the Some Odd Girl Stamps blog!

Hi, crafty friends! I’m up on the Some Odd Girl Stamps blog today with more shrink plastic inspiration!

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!

It’s New Digi Tuesday at Some Odd Girl!

Happy Tuesday, crafty friends! I have two cards to share with you today that feature the new digi stamp and sentiment cut file at Some Odd Girl Stamps!

It looks like the newest resident of Odd Land is enjoying some retail therapy! Say hello to “Shopping Piper“! I chose a sentiment from the “Hey Mae” clear stamp set, and the heart speech bubble comes from the “I Do” clear stamp set.

You may recognize the “Party Crab” digi stamp from a recent release, and I chose one of the new “Chill Sentiment Cut Files” to go along with him:
We’re almost halfway through August, so don’t forget about the Linky Party at the Some Odd Girl blog! There’s no special theme or requirements, other than you linking 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 digi and cut file!

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!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hope your week is going well so far!

Class is in session with Teacher Mae at Some Odd Girl Stamps!

Hi, everybody! It’s time for a new clear stamp release at Some Odd Girl Stamps, and we’re getting a head start on the new school year with “Teacher Mae“, the first of two new sets available today in the Some Odd Girl Stamps Store!
After I colored the main image, I chose one of the sentiments from the set and made a chalkboard, because you can’t have class without one! (And of course, Mae gets a gold star because she’s so wonderful!)
I’m trying to work on different clothing patterns, so I attempted a tweed skirt. I think I’ll use smaller lined pens next time to get a finer pattern.
I also couldn’t resist making a sticky note holder with the ruler stamp in the set. (There’s a little sneak peek at tomorrow’s set…I love that I could put a happy face on the ruler!)

You can find more inspiration with “Teacher Mae” at the Some Odd Girl blog, and both of the new clear sets are available NOW in the Some Odd Girl Store!
Even though we’re in the middle of July, there’s still time to link up your Some Odd Girl projects with this month’s Linky Party on the Some Odd Girl blog! All you have to do is link up your latest Some Odd Girl projects for a chance at being featured, or winning some fabulous prizes! (You’ll find the linky tool on the right side of the SOG blog!)
Thank you SO MUCH for stopping by today! I’ll be back tomorrow with more new release projects! Hope your week is off to a wonderful start!

New digi Tuesday at Some Odd Girl…it’s AWESOME! (Totally!)

Happy Tuesday, everybody! I’m back to share my card for today’s Some Odd Girl Stamps‘ newest digi release!
I went a bit retro with the card…after I colored up this “Pretty Unicorn“, I was inspired to make a card that looked like someone drew and colored the unicorn on a notebook page. 

The label part of the sentiment was part of the May Swag bag from Paper Issues, and trimmed it to work with the recolored digital sentiment from Some Odd Girl (it’s part of the brand-new “Yes, Smile Sentiment Cutfile Pack”)! 
For more AWESOME inspiration with today’s new digi and cutfiles, stop by the Some Odd Girl blog, join our Facebook group, and “like” the Some Odd Girl company Facebook page, why don’t ya?
Hope your week is off to a great start…and don’t forget to be AWESOME!

Some fresh inspiration with Some Odd Girl’s Fruit Salad stamps!

Happy Tuesday! I’m back with a project featuring the second new clear stamp set at Some Odd Girl Stamps, “Fruit Salad“! 

I made these little note pad holders with the set! Each holder fits a regular 3″ x 3″ sticky note pad inside, and would be part of a great end-of-the school year gift for a teacher or any time for a friend!


And because it’s Tuesday, that also means we have new digis in the Some Odd Girl store! This card features “Graduation Mae“! I cut her cap off and made it look like she threw it in the air to celebrate! For those of you who are looking for a graduating guy, you’ll also find “Graduation Kody” in the SOG store!


And there you have it! For more creative options with this new digi (and with all of the Some Odd Girl Stamps) join us on SOG’s Facebook group!

You can also find more inspiration on the Some Odd Girl blog, where you’ll also find our June Linky Party! To join in the fun, just link up your latest creations with Some Odd Girl digi or clear stamps with the Linky tool on the blog! You just might win a prize and get a shout out on the blog

Some Odd Girl has Cookies ‘N Milk to share with YOU!

Hi, everybody! It’s time for a new clear stamp release at Some Odd Girl Stamps, and this month’s stamps are right up my alley! I love cute food with faces, and not only are there’s adorable “Cookies ‘N Milk” to share with you today, but you’ll go BANANAS for tomorrow’s set (and apples and pears)!
I’ve been working on my photography skills lately, and have been taking more photos outside in natural light. This one was taken on my front porch. I usually take 4-5 shots for each card and pick the best of the group for my blog post, which for me is the one that I’ll need to edit the least in Photoshop Elements.
Here are best pals Milk and Cookie! I stamped them holding hands, but you don’t have to. Each image can be stamped by itself! 
An experiment on my part was to color a wood veneer heart with a Copic marker and attach some foil paper to the underside of the heart. I sealed it with some Glossy Accents. It took a long time to dry, but I think it came out OK!
You can find more delicious inspiration with this set at the Some Odd Girl blog, and both of the new clear sets are available NOW in the Some Odd Girl Store!
Now that we’ve flipped the calendar to June, there’s a new Linky Party at the Some Odd Girl blog! All you have to do is link up your latest Some Odd Girl projects for a chance at being featured, or winning some fabulous prizes! (You’ll find the linky tool on the right side of the SOG blog!)
Thank you SO MUCH for stopping by today! This will be a busy week for me on the blog, so I’ll have lots of fun projects to share with you! Hope your week is off to a wonderful start!
