Some Odd Girl April Release Review

Hello there!

I’m sharing today a card using the new release digi stamp this month from Some Odd Girl.  The release this month are retired stamps yet be enjoyed now as a digital stamp 🙂 Love that.

I colored Big Wishes Mae digital stamp with my favorite coloring medium promarkers. For the card base I embossed that with medium-sized dots and also added some patterned papers for some fun. I also added some gems for added texture.

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.

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 distress markers

Hello!

For this card, I used some cute house stamps from Paper Smooches. I colored them with distress markers and added some water to get this watercolor wash. I then added some frosted lace stickles to mimic some snowy scene for the holidays.

I placed the houses in a blue die cut tag with red ribbon strips behind. My sentiment is from Ali Edwards, always love the fonts on this stamp set.

I also added some sequins for more holiday sparkles.

I used a card sketch from The Paper Players: PP318.

Stripes and watercolor

Happy Saturday!

For this card I used fabric tape to create the red stripes. I have a big bottle full of washi and different tapes and I thought I need to make use of them frequently because they deserved more love 🙂 The blue strip is a washi that I crossed over the red tape.

I used stamped images from My Favorite Things and colored them with watercolor. The Christmas tree was colored with promarkers.

The holiday season is soon to come and I need to do my holiday cards this early.

My sentiment is die cut from My Favorite Things as well.

I used a card sketch from Sketch N Scrap, Card Sketch # 84.

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!

Thankful

Hello

It seems like the weather is changing already from summer to a more friendlier temperature. I can tell as its also around this time that I get a cold 😦 Not really a cool thing but that will not keep me do another card today.

I used a card sketch from Pals Paper Arts, Sketch # 318.

My main image, farmer is from Paper Smooches. I colored him with promarker following some autumn colors. I used another stamp set to stamp the autumn leaves in the bigger panel and Thankful sentiment just to complement the season.

I also stamped the card base background with woodgrain background stamp from Hero Arts.

CAS coloring and die cuts

Hello!

A clean and simple card using my new stamps from WPlus 9, Get Well Gang.

So many cute images in the set but for today I used the dog image. I colored him with copic and promarker then diecut him along with the mouse and a medicine bottle.

I also run an embossed wonky stitches though it doesn’t show much in the paper. I need to add another paper next time to emphasize the embossing.

For some color, I also added some colored dots and distress inks in the background.

I used a sketch from CAS Colours and Sketches, Challenge #190 Sketch. I flip the sketch with the curved on top rather than to the left.

Die cutting and Embossing

Hello!

Just checking in quickly to share my take in this week’s (CAS)E this Sketch #189.

I used a word die cut ‘Hugs’ from Simon Says Stamp and I embossed the yellow card base with this medallion design embossing folder. Its so easy and I finish the card while I’m on the phone with a friend. Multi- tasking you know 🙂

Spritz fun

Happy Saturday!

I’ve been looking for some card challenges different from the ones I usually join in and got this one from Virginia’s View Challenge, Challenge # 23.  The challenge is to use Spray, Mist or Splatter so I looked at my supplies to use.

I found this mini mist Mr Huey’s from Studio Calico that I got from a box haul long time ago. I only  have one color  called Jubilee so I decided to make a monochromatic card instead. It would be nice to have more colors but since I seldom use mini mist and I need the supply now, why not work on what I have and see what I can get out of it?

So I sprayed the mini mist to a white cardstock, then let them dry for sometime. I haven’t played a lot using this technique but it was fun 🙂

then I selected parts of the sprayed paper to stamp my fishes from Avery Elle. I love them 🙂 Since the eyes were also colored with the mist, I stamped the eye part of the fish in a clean white cardstock and fussy cut them to put on top of the sprayed ones. A nice clean pair of eyes would be good right?

I used a sprayed watercolor paper with the same Jubilee color for my background piece. I also added a framed die cut to placed the fishes. An additional sequins would be good also, with the same color scheme of green.

The spritz color added a soft coloring to the stamped images which I love 🙂
