Some Odd Girl March Challenge – twist pop it up

Hi there!

So happy to share this sweet image ‘Guitar Kody’ from Some Odd Girl. This is my take in this month’s (March) Challenge in Some Odd Girl, with the twist pop it up.  You may come and drop by the Some Odd Girl blog to join in and see the rest of the amazing creations of the team.

After coloring Kody with promarker, I fussy cut the image and pop that up with dimensional adhesives. You can  see the elevated image in my close up photo of Kody. I also popped the bubble speech with dimensionals.

That’s it for now and enjoy the rest of your day 🙂

Swoon Dakota Digi Stamp

Hello!

Today I’m sharing one of the newly released digi stamps from Some Odd Girl, Swoon Dakota. I love how she flipped one of her leg, adding a cute gesture on her character.

I recently bought some new Promarker, Skin tone last weekend and used it here to color Dakota. I think I need to do some more practice runs in blending with my new alcohol markers but generally pleased on how Dakota brought life to this clean and simple card.

I used some die cuts to add some texture on the cardstock border and also banner die cuts on top of my card. Some sequins will be fun too isn’t it? 🙂

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 🙂

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.

Let’s be merry

Hiya!

So trying to get into swing of things around the blog. This time trying to take a sketch challenge from Match the Sketch, No. 155.

I’ve been loving the washi tape on my christmas cards this year and still loving it. Apparently in today’s card is not an exception. I added a strip of washi and embossed the background for some added texture.

My main image is colored with promarkers and die cut the same. Though this card’s color is not really traditional holiday color, still love this one 🙂

Watercolor and stamping

Hello!

I’m checking in quickly to share my card using My Favorite Things Holiday stamps. The images are stamped and colored with watercolor.

I also used a strip of washi tape in the left and a circle scallop vellum in the middle of my stamped images. I also added some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh for some fun 🙂

At the bottom are some stamped doilies from an older stamp set.

A very simple and clean holiday card, just like I want 🙂

Merry Christmas – die cut

Hiya!

I was able to do some holiday cards today and this one is just one of them.

I used my new stamps from My Favorite Things and did some die cutting with their coordinating dies.

My card sketch inspiration is from Freshly Made Sketches, Sketch #259.

fms-final-259-001

The stamps I used are actually a non-holiday stamp set but I did some holiday colors to make it a Christmas card 🙂 The sentiment “Merry Christmas” is a die from My Favorite Things that I got free from my previous haul. I die cut them three times to make a thicker dimension.

Coloring is just simple using my promarkers and copics. For my strip behind the circle is a ribbon and a gold paper that I got from a scrap packaging box. Love to recycle things like this luscious papers from packages 🙂

I added some flat gold sequins and glittery stickles I’m done!

Joy to the world

Happy Friday!

I made another holiday card using some new stamps from Avery Elle.

I love these cute woodland creatures and how cute they look singing for Christmas 🙂 I colored the images with promarkers and fussy cut them since I don’t have their coordinating dies yet.

For my papers, I have some stash from Pink Paisley and used them up this time. It looks more vintage but its nice to incorporate them to new modern stamps once in a while.  I also added some sequins to mimic the snow fall.

I  used a card sketch from Sketch Saturday: Week # 433.
