Some Odd Girl May Challenge twist Anything but a card

Hiya!

Today starts the monthly challenge at the Some Odd Girl blog. As always its Anything Goes but this month twist is  ”Anything but a card”. That means you can do any project, a home decor, display item, bookmark or any other things else except a card.

For this challenge, I used 3 different digital stamps to make a fairy scene. I used the Gnome mountain, Brella fairy, and Build-a-scene mushroom digi. I colored all of them with promarkers and popped them all with dimensional adhesives.

This will be one of my fave DIY wall decors for sure 🙂

Gardening Mae digi stamp

Hiya!

I’m quickly checking in to share a project I did using Gardening Mae digital stamp from Some Odd Girl.

I love coloring her and adding more light greens as my color of choice for the whole card. I also added some sequins to represent some flowers in a way 🙂 As always, marker will be my coloring medium of choice too.

Note that Kit and Clowder is running a 2-week coloring contest beginning today April 8 and this digital stamp, Gardening Mae will be on special offer for $1.00. How cool is that! Just use the code KCSOG over here

And more info about the challenge can be found here

So here is my take in the challenge

Until then!

 

 

Nerdy Chihuahua Digi Stamp

Hiya!

Just checking in quickly to share my take in this week’s Sketch Saturday challenge # 457.

I missed joining in weekly challenges like this since work life has been very busy for the last quarter. So happy to take part this week though.

I used a digital stamp from Some Odd Girl called Nerdy Chihuahua 🙂 So cute isn’t it?  I colored him with promarkers and fussy cut him too. For the card base, I added some texture by embossing with Swiss dots embossing folder. The oblong and rectangular shapes were also diecut with stitching details.

Some Odd Girl April Challenge

Hello there!

Today begins the monthly challenge at Some Odd Girl with the twist nothing square.

I used Tunes Tia digi stamp and colored her with promarker. I then fussy cut the image and pop that up in the card. I think circle cards are always cute so I did one this time 🙂 Die cuts will be great in this instance. I also added some cloud and sun die cuts too for some fun. And with some bright-colored enamel dots with white sequins to add and I’m happy.

Don’t forget to visit the Some Odd Girl blog for some DT inspirations. It will be more fun if you can join the challenge too.

Until next time!

Coloring with Promarker & Blog Hop

vday-hop-header

Hello!

Welcome to my stop on the Some Odd Girl Valentine’s Day Blog Hop! You should have arrived from Anna’s blog but if you just stopped by then head back to the beginning to get started so you don’t miss any stops.
For my stop I’ve created a clean and simple card using Some Odd Girl stamp that I adore. I used one of the cute cat from the Clever Kittys Clear Stamp and colored that with promarkers.
I build the colors by laying light colors first- a very light brown color, then slowly adding some yellow-orange and brown to intensify the darker areas or spots in the cat’s hair.

I kept the mid-section light to show some light areas of the cat’s color.

For my card base, I also stamped a ball of thread with very light gray ink.

Coloring is somewhat therapeutic and you can use any type of coloring medium as you wish. One thing that I love about the Some Odd Girl stamps is that they are big enough to color and very pretty stamp designs too 🙂

Thanks

Hello there! Wow! Feels like forever since I posted a card project. Life’s been so busy from the time I went to vacation in November and even after returning from the trip. Add to the fact that the holidays are busier and the first quarter of the year even crazier 🙂

It’s good to get back on my crafty life slowly but will sure get there eventually.

So for this card I used my favorite washi tapes for the background. I also die cut the sentiment “Thanks” from Lawn Fawn while the stamp came from My Favorite Things.

There are a lot of craft supplies that I still need to use and hopefully I’ll be showcasing them individually soon.

I’m using a card sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch #196.

Embossing and patterned papers

Hello!

So I’m still into the Christmas vibe making some more holiday cards for friends. There’s a gathering on Thursday and I thought it would be nice to give something too while we’re celebrating an advance Christmas dinner.

For this card, I used a card sketch from Sketch N Scrap, Card sketch # 87.

I used some patterned papers and embossed the sentiment with white. The background texture is also made using an embossing folder. The cutesy images are from My Favorite Things & Pretty Pink Posh.

I’m back! and a card

Wow! I can’t believe I haven’t posted in my blog for months, feels like forever?!

So what had happened? I was on my annual break last November and had to prepare the trip even before November. Then I have to travel for two weeks in North America. Its cold but great! I may say the best two weeks of my life 🙂

Had great places to see and amazing people to meet. It was quite incredible, the best birthday gift to self.

After the vacation, a lot of things need to be done at work so I haven’t really updated the blog. I’m however posting my holiday cards in Instagram. You can also check me out there as @heartforhandmade

So today, had the chance to do some holiday cards.

I did some embossing – dry and heat embossing plus some die cutting in the scallop strip + sequins.

Well its nice to be back.
