Some Odd Girl Digi Tuesday - Grandpa Feeds the Ducks

 If you haven't seen already, there are two new images in the Some Odd Girl shop! This one is called Grandpa Feeds the Ducks and it's the latest addition to the Grand series. I am totally in love with this card. I had so much fun coloring him and his cute little duckies! The sentiment is from the clear stamp set Renew, and I think it works perfectly with the clear-screened 'Today' embellishment. I love him with the Fancy Pants Park Bench papers and the wee little yellow buttons.

I hope you enjoyed my project today! There is still time to squeak in your project to the Some Odd Girl Monthly Challenge. This month is Pot O' Gold! It goes through the 30th!

SOG Inspiration - Easter Cupcake Toppers

Good morning, Oddies! Alexis joining you here today with a fun inspiration post. For this project, I decided to mush together two of my favorite things. Baking cupcakes and Some Odd Girl images and made adorable cupcake toppers! I had an Easter theme in mind for these, since it's just around the corner, but you could do any theme or holiday with these just by switching out the image. I used Shy Bunny and Eggster Bunny for these and chose some bright spring-colored paper for the backer.

March Inspiration 1

The best thing about this project is that it really couldn't be simpler to make. I used my Zing cutter to make the exact shapes and sizes I wanted, but you can just as easily use your favorite die or punch for the backer pieces. I cut two of the base shape, because I attach that to the other side of the stick so that you can't see it on the back. Just attach your colored image to the top with pop dots and voila! Instant Cute-On-A-Stick!

March Inspiration 2
I hope you try this for your next holiday party or birthday! It's super fun, simple and all your guests will be impressed, I assure you! Then don't forget to post pictures of your awesome creations on our Facebook Group! And if you haven't already, hop on over and sign up for the Some Odd Girl Newsletter! It's always full of goodies!

SOG Digi Tuesday - Strolling Mae & Nurse Kaylee

Another good morning! Today I am bringing you a couple of creations using two new Digi's being released at Some Odd Girl today! The first is Strolling Mae, which bears an uncanny resemblance to our DT Coordinator, the lovely Leah L'Orange. So, I had a lot of fun coloring the adorable image up so that it looked even more like her! I used Cosmo Cricket papers from the Creative Girl 8x8 stack and a couple rub-one and flair.

For card number two, I used the new Nurse Kaylee! This has been a big request over at the Facebook Group, so it was fun to see it come to fruition. Great image for a get well soon card, but I kept it more general using the 'You can fix anything' sentiment from the Steampunk Kaylee set.I like the little heart paper, which looks like the lines on a heart monitor....only a bit more literal. *Snicker*

I hope you all enjoy the new release, and don't forget to submit your projects to this month's 'Pot O' Gold' challenge! See you soon!

SOG Clear Release - Hipster Mae

I'm almost sad to see this release come to an end, but here we are at the last of the Hipster collection with the lovely Hipster Mae! *Twirls her* I gave her cool clip in pink streaks and super cute purple and mint outfit and of course she's got her hip handbag and latte. I imagine her out on the town, taking lots of selfies! *Snickers*

Well, now that we're winding down, how did you like the release? Wasn't it fab? Or should I say, hip? Swing by the shop to pick these babies up, and the festivities are still in full swing over at the Facebook page! See you there!

SOG Clear Release - Hipster Pets

Hello my dapper friends! It's day two of the new Hipster clear stamp release and today we're bringing you Hipster Pets! I actually made two projects with them, because I just couldn't resist the cute! The first is my dapper fox. I've named him Lord Swishytail. I used a book page for the back and stamped him directly on the page and then I colored him using Tim Holtz Distress Markers. I love the way the copy still shows through a little through the ink. I used a piece of vellum behind his monocle and added the bowler hat and mustache add on stamps in the set. 

The next I've named Captain Whiskermittens. He's quite dapper as well, and I think he and Lord Swishytail would get along famously. I actually used the reverse cuts from the Fox card to make the Cat's card and added some more of the Fancy Pants Swagger paper and coordinating bakers twine and buttons.

I adore this set, and I know you will too. Pick it up at the shop, and while you're at it, pick up Hipster Kody and sneak a peek at tomorrow's release! Don't forget to join us at the Facebook release party!

SOG Clear Release - Hipster Kody

Good morning, lovies!! The Some Odd Girl clear stamp release you've all been waiting for it finally here! Wooooo! This is the first stamp from the release, and he's called Hipster Kody! Is he totally hip or what? I can't help but adore him, partially because he's so fun to color, partially because he's so different from a lot of the other Kody stamps and partially because of his uncanny resemblance to Johnny Depp....*Giggles* I loved tricking out this card with some vintage buttons and grungy papers from the Fancy Pants Swagger line. The sentiments that come with this stamp are perfect and I can never seem to have enough cool guy projects.

Go and get yours at the shop now, or stay tuned this week for the rest of the release and grab them all! If you haven't already noticed we're having a release party this week for the Hipster Stamp sets over on the Facebook page and we're going to be having lots of fun games and trivia! Join us in the fun!

March Challenge - Pot O' Gold

I've been dying to use Moulin Mae in a project, and this month's Pot O' Gold challenge seemed like the perfect opportunity! She looks perfect surrounded by all this glitz and gold, doesn't she?

I created a trefoil background using metallic gold paint and a stencil from Heidi Swapp and used chipboard embellishments covered in Tim Holtz Distress glitter in Antique Linen. You can use anything to participate - papers, embellishments, image coloring - and just enter here and you'll be golden! (See what I did there?)

And don't forget about the newsletter, or the new Facebook group! There is some amazing deals and inspiration to be had all over the SOG community!
