SOG Digi Release - Puppy Gwen & Speech Bubbles

How could you not love that sweet punam?! Admittedly, I don't have a dog. I have a cat...but my cat Asher acts so much more like a dog it's kind of amusing and my parents own a dog grooming salon back in my home town, so I've kind of always been around them in one form or another. I just love Puppy Gwen. In fact, Gwen is quickly becoming my favorite SOGgy character to color (maybe because we have the same hairstyle) For this project, I decided to do a dimensional tag instead of a card. I got this adorable animal paper for Christmas last year and this seemed the perfect opportunity to use it.

Copics Used:

Skin: E00, E01, E02, E04 & E11
Hair: E30, E31, E34 & E37
Puppy: N3, N5, R43 & R56
Clothes: N0, N3, N6, N8, C6, V13, V15, B39, B97 & B99

The sentiment is from _ and stamped onto one of the brilliant new Speech Bubble cut files you'll find here.

And don't forget to enter the SOG October Ombre challenge! Time is almost up!!

I hope you all liked the project I created this week. Tell me about your favorite pet and stay Odd!

Trick or Treat with the Odd Girls

Happy Halloween, my sweet Oddies! If you're here, that means you were kind enough to join the Odd girls on our Trick-or-Treat week and you just came from Anna's! Don't worry though, if you got lost on the dark streets of the interwebs, or just happened upon my jack-o-lantern strewn doorstep, you'll want to go back to the beginning and read the main SOG blog post. You definitely don't want to skip anyone, because in order to win treats, you must leave a comment on all of the Design Team blogs. (Even the tricksy ones!)

For my project, I used Halloween Tia - Isn't she just the cutest?! I've always wanted to carve a white pumpkin, but they are hard to find here in Florida, so I settled for coloring a carved white pumpkin. It's totally the same thing, right?

So, I'll bet your wondering if this is a trick or a treat?! Well, I'm happy to inform you that it's a TREAT!!!


This treat is also introducing what has been a super sneaky secret in the Odd World! Kristi, starting with the November 4th Clear Stamp release, will be offering coordinating Odds & Ends with embellishments made to match the release! How awesome sauce is that?! This set contains sequins in bright and subtle colors of blue, pink, yellow and green as well as silver stars! Based on the colors, can you guess what the November release will be?

This treat could end up in your candy bag, but in order to possibly win this awesome package of custom mixed sequins, you have to leave a comment on all the blogs in our hop! The next Odd Girl in our Trick or Treat Hop is the lovely Leah, so go see her now and see if another treat awaits, or if she has a trick in store for you!

You can Trick or Treat with us thru midnight EDT on October 31. Winners will be announced Saturday Nov 2 on the Some Odd Girl blog. So, for your chance to win this fun treat, leave a comment and let me know what would be your ideal Halloween costume?

SOG Oct 22nd Digi Release

Mae Antoinette! You guys seriously have no idea my obsession with Marie Antoinette, so when I saw on Kristy's blog a while back that she was sketching out a Mae Antoinette, I almost lost it. I'm so excited about this stamp!!

The (Very funny and appropriate) sentiment is from the  Big Wishes Mae clear stamp and I've also used the bow cut files from this week's release. (I didn't mean to make that sound like so much of an after thought, but MAE ANTOINETTE!!! EEEEEEE) Okay, I'll try not to lose my head over it....

I've always been a big Halloween girl! I mean, seriously, who doesn't love to play dress up and eat candy?! Well, apparently when you're 32 and you don't have kids it's frowned upon, but they can't stop me from making awesome Halloween cards, right?! (Right?) Well, this week I have a super cute Halloween card to show off using this Month's Featured Digi, Witchy Mae. Isn't she adorable? And that kitten clinging to her broom is super cute!  She's on sale right now, so you should go pick her up!

SOG -Ning Challenge - October Coloring Challenge

This week over at the Some Odd Girl Ning, we've got a color challenge going on.  The challenge is to use orange, purple and green in your image. Since we're coming up on Halloween, I've decided to use Mad Scientist Tobie and I think he looks quite devious in this color scheme.

Copic Colors:
Skin: E000, E01, E04, E11, R20, R32 & R29
Clothes: G40, G43, G46, YR09, YR 18, YR 27, BV08 & BV29
Hair: V09, V17, BV08 & BV29

I used Graphic 45 and My Mind's Eye papers for the card.

I hope you like the project and I hope you join our Ning and post your own project for our challenge this week!

SOG Oct 8th Release

It's Some Odd Girl digi release day!! Yay!! Everyone jump up and down and fist bump!! Or, just hop on over to the shop and download them. *Giggles*  I can't believe how adorable October's releases are, but this one was one of my favorite. I live in sunny (read: Hot and Rainy) Florida and I've been looking for some fall. I won't feel it until late December, so I'm living vicariously through this card.

I love that she looks like she's blowing over in the wind, having to hold her cute little beret to keep it from flying off. Her dress was super fun to color.

Skin: E00, E01, E02, E04, E11, R85 & R32
Hair: YR20, YR21, E53, E55 & E57
Hat, Jacket & Boots: E97, E15, E99, E23, E18 & Y28
Dress & Accents: B91, B93, B99, C3 & C5

The background is distressed with Tim Holtz ink and stamped with the leaves from Rapunzel. And that's not to forget about the fall cut file I used. There are a cute set of three, one with pie and one with apples and I can't wait to use the others. I cut it from Avery Elle wood grain paper and distressed the top just a bit to bring out the grain.

Now if only I could get a little cool weather down here....but I guess I'll just have to settle for cranking the A/C down a bit. *Snickers*

SOG October Sketch (And First DT Submission)

I am thrilled to be a part of the Some Odd Girl Design Team this term. And by thrilled I mean totally and completely giddy and incapable of keeping still while thinking about it. *Grins* So, you'll be seeing a bit more of me (And more importantly more of SOG) on this blog. Our First challenge of the term was October's Ombre Challenge.

The first thing I thought of was Ombre hair color, because the first time I ever heard the term was from my favorite hairdresser. So, I knew that I wanted to incorporate an Ombre hairstyle on my SOG image. I used Gaze for my image so that I could put a lot of focus on the hair. I actually used a ton of colors on her hair because I wanted to give it the same depth as I do when I shadow in a standard color set, but I needed to do that for three color blocks and to blend them into each other.

Copics Used:
Skin: E0000. E01, E04, E11, E93, E95 & R20
Hair: Top (E77,E59,E47 & E79) Middle (E15, E17, E18, E29 & E57) Lower (E13, E31, E21 & E30)
Clothes & Makeup: R81, R83 & R85

In addition to my Ombre hair coloring, I made an Ombre glitter background panel, fading from a deep magenta glitter to a pale pink glitter.

Other image/cut files used: Believe & Circle Card Background

I kind of love the way she turned out. How would you use Ombre in a paper craft project?
