Bonjour, Frenchie Kody!

Happy Monday, Oddies! I’m so happy that it’s clear stamp release time again at Some Odd Girl Stamps! We have a French theme this month with our two new clear stamp sets, and we begin by saying “bonjour” to “Frenchie Kody“!
I used some air-mail style papers from my stash for the card and went with a clean and simple style. I heat embossed the sentiment on some vellum and cut it out to pair with the heart stamp.

I’ll be back tomorrow with a new project and the second new clear stamp set in Some Odd Girl Stamps’ February release, and I’m sure you’ll fall in love with it, too! Make sure to stop by the Some Odd Girl blog for more inspiration with Frenchie Kody

Now that it’s February, we’ve kicked off a new Linky Party on the Some Odd Girl blog! To join the month’s party, just add your latest Some Odd Girl creations with the linky tool! You can also share with us in the Some Odd Girl Facebook Group! For all of the latest Odd scoop, you can also find Some Odd Girl Stamps oGoogle+TwitterInstagram and Pinterest (#SomeOddGirl)!

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?

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!

You’ll LOVE the new digi stamp bundles at Some Odd Girl!

Hi, there! Welcome to our second week of showcasing special themed digi stamp bundles in the Some Odd Girl Stamps Store!
There are four new digi bundles this week, each containing four digi stamps. My first card features Cupid Mae, one of the four digi stamps in the “Love” bundle
My second card features “Love Letter.” (The “Love” bundle also includes “Sweet Kiss Kody” and “Hand Holding Mae and Kody.” With the stamp bundles, you get all four digis together at a special discount price!): 

The layout on this card is inspired by the current sketch at retro sketches (#145):
Stop by the Some Odd Girl Store to purchase the “Love” digi set or any of the other special bundles! Here’s a look at all four images in the “Love” digi bundle: Love Letter, Hand Holding Mae and Kody, Sweet Kiss Kody and Cupid Mae:

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!

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!

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!
