Easter Gift Bags

Hi there Oddlets!

It’s Linda here, and I’m really happy to be here today with my first Design Team Inspiration post!

One of the things I love most about being a crafter (besides the amazing community of talented people–check out our Facebook Group if you like the sound of that!), is that we can create personalized, one-of-a-kind items for people.

This year is the first year I’ve had two of my daughters in school, and I thought it would be fun to create some little Easter gifts for their teachers.

These were so fun and simple to make–so simple in fact, I’m considering making something similar for the girls’ schoolfriends too!

all three 

To create these, I die cut some panels of X-press It blending card, using a nestabilities die.
Next I stamped the images and sentiments from the Hip Hop Hooray clear stamps set.
I copic-colored them, going for different colored bunnies (always fun to change things up I think!)

Then I took each panel, scored it about 1/3 of the way down from the top (a little higher maybe), and then creased the fold in. I then lightly adhered them on to the gift bags, before securing them down with some added twine from the Some Odd Girl shop. I used Orange Bakers TwineGreen and Pink Bamboo Twine

Here is a closer look at them

So cute, right?!
I hope I’ve inspired you to create some fun, personalized Easter gifts or gift bags!

Shop Update with Mr. Some Odd Girl

Good morning to everyone out there in Oddland!  I am Kristy’s husband and business partner Jason, otherwise known as Mr. Some Odd Girl.  I usually do some behind the scenes posts and other fun SOG stuff over on my blog, but Kristy and Leah have let me come over here to spread some of the awesomeness around. (kinda feel like I got promoted up to the big leagues or something like that).  So, this will be a kind of a shop update sort of thing where I show off what we are doing or whats new over at someoddgirl.com, because, since we started this little adventure making sure the  shop is running has been my job.

 

PICT_20140331_131506_1OK, first up, last week we had our April clear stamp release of Bunny Girl Gwen and Hip Hop Hooray. These were a big hit, because, well, who doesn’t want to high five a cute little bunny?  If you didn’t grab yours last week, I’ve got a pile of them on my desk that want to go out to happy craft rooms.

We also had our weekly digi release with Bug Catcher Tobie and Ladybug Tia (can you tell we really want spring to be here?). And, we have two more fun ones coming tomorrow. How Kristy can crank out all these images every week will always impress me.

 

Last fall Kristy and I decided to expand what products we were carrying by bringing in some limited items to try out. Of course, everything fits the Odd Girl mentality, and the Odds & Ends category was born. Last month we added some custom colored bamboo twine in our signature colors. These are seriously brightly colored. The bamboo really shows off the colors.

And last week Kristy found some new sequin packs to add. Triangle sequins, really, triangles. I’ve had one of the triangle songs from Sesame Street stuck in my head all week since she showed them to me.

We have some big, big plans for this year and some of them will fall in line with the Odds and End catagory, so keep an eye on that section. The other stuff is really awesome and we will be sharing what we can when we get closer. So, spoilers. :). Kristy has some really cool new stuff coming in that I will be able to share in two weeks. If there is anything you’d like us to consider carrying, let us know in the comments.

Thanks for visiting us today and if our shop ever gives you any issues or you need help with something always feel free to email me at Jason@someoddgirl.com and I will do my best to help.

Clear release winners and SPOTLIGHT TIME!

Hello Friday, it’s so good to see you!  :) 

Hope you’ve all had a great week and are looking forward to a fun weekend as much as we are!  Leah here, excited to make someone’s day (two people, actually), and to shine a little spotlight on a couple of projects that were shared with us from our Oddies

I think I’ll start off with the spotlights this time!  Just feast your eyes on these fabulous creations, shared in our April linky party (check the sidebar – ANY April project qualifies as long as it’s new and you use Some Odd Girl stamps - clear or digital!)

First, this girl!

joanne spotlight
LOVE how Joanne zoomed in and printed a GIANT Beachy Tia (digi) and mounted it as a polaroid!  Those papers are fab for spring, those little heart cutouts are awesome, and the black really makes Tia POP!  Awesome little card, Jo!

Next, we have a Some Odd Girl newbie who couldn’t wait to get her color on!  Lookie!

tenia spotlight

Tenia‘s image choice was an obvious one as she’s a jazzy kinda chick…  Tweeting (digi) looks SO super cute on this bright and happy card,  and I can’t help but grin because of the BOLD color combo and her fun shading technique!  Love it, T!

So that’s how it’s done!  SPOTLIGHTS on our Oddies!  Thanks for linking up, ladies!  And now, to kick the weekend off, let’s see who Random.org chose for our Clear Release winners, shall we? 

Hip Hop Hooray (the sweetest little bunnies ever)

Hop on board! Decorating your Easter Eggs with your Stamps

Hey there Odd friends! 

It’s Judy here with you today and I have a little video that will show you an EGG-cellent way to use your Some Odd Girl clear stamps for something other than a card. We will use the NEW  Hip Hop Hooray and Bunny Girl Gwen  Clear Stamp sets to decorate Easter eggs and make egg stands like these…

eggs3

 We will stamp using StazOn ink and paint the image with food coloring.  What’s that?  You don’t like to paint?  No worries! Once you see how easy it is to stamp on your eggs, you can come up with fun creations that don’t involve a paint brush at all….like my glittery golden prize egg.

Hip Hop Horray Egg

Let’s decorate some eggs!!

 

I hope you enjoyed this little “how to” video and that you give this project a try for yourself. 

Don’t forget about our new Linky Party (here’s all the details in case you missed it).  We want to see your Some Odd Girl creations, so link up! You’ll find the linky button over on the right side bar of this blog.  Hey, you could even link up those fabulously ODD Easter eggs you are about to make!
