Okay, Oddies, confession time! I often leave my card-making for the last minute. An hour before that birthday party, I’m probably putting the finishing touches on the birthday card and stuffing it in an envelope. It’s not the greatest of habits, and I’ll be working to change it this year!

This year, I’m working on building up a card stash – having some great cards to use at any occasion. I started with a simple Hello card using the adorable Kitty Tia digi stamp. I used bright and happy colors, and combined masculine and feminine tones so the card can be sent to anyone. I made a sentiment from foam alphabet stickers  – which added dimension without adding a lot of bulk. When I was coloring Tia, I made sure to use contrast between my colors so she would pop and be the star of the show.

Hello and Happy 2017 ODDies! Tabbatha here today with a little Monday Inspiration. I made a fun little card using Lion Tobie digital stamp with a sentiment from On Safari Clear Stamp.

I’m a sucker for such cutie images for sure! Anything in a onesie right now makes me melt, perhaps a little of art imitating real life huh?

The layout is a simple CAS one, but I rocked it out with the Some Odd Girl Odds & Ends. I LOVE the Sunshine Sorbet papers and how awesome is it that all the sequins match it so well? I suspect there was a little planning there on The Odd Girl’s part. 😉

Do you have certain types of images that just make you melt? Share your ideas with us in the Some Odd Girl Community.  

Don’t forget that we are having a Design Team Call – the deadline to enter is January 22!

Hello Oddies!  Melissa here today to inspire you to do something different.  For me, different is using flowers.  I have a hard time placing flowers and swirls on cards and crafts.  That feminine touch that comes so naturally to so many of you makes me envious.  I always am inspired by other’s flowery creations, but when I pull my flowers out my mind becomes stagnant.

The image I used today is Coffee Lover Mae and I thought she would look good with coordinating flowers.  I realized while working on this I stress too much about the flower placement.  Being me, I got frustrated and gave up, just tossing them on the card.  Wait, I liked how they landed.  I think it’s time to lighten up on the flower placement and set a crafty goal for 2017 to use more flowers and swirls.  

What crafty goal will you work toward this year? Come share it with us in our Community, we can work on them together!
