Welcome, Oddies!

It’s Ellen with a project for you today. On the internet I saw a special window card. As a result I got the idea to make a fun birthday card with a mini story.

On the outside of the card I made a scene with (again) a cat from the Clever Kittys clear stamp set and the Birthday Mae clear set. Doesn’t the puss look like he is blowing out the candle and ready to make his wish? I think it’s just perfect for it!

On the inside we see the cat’s desire; a cupcake – hihi!! This part of the card is made with the treat from the Cupcake Mae clear set, and the sentiments are from Cupcake Mae and Clever Kittys.

I had so much fun to make this story card. If you liked it too and want to grab the Birthday Mae & Cupcake Mae stamps before they’re GONE FOREVER, be sure to check out the retirement section of the shop! There are still a lot different & awesome stamp sets available at big discounts! Buy them now before they are gone for good!

And to all of our U.S. friends, Happy Thanksgiving!  We hope there are some cupcakes (or at least pumpkin pie) in your near future!

Morning, Oddies!

Leah here with a smidge of inspiration to S-T-R-E-T-C-H your clear stamps just a little further!  That’s just what we do at Some Odd Girl – we’re all about getting the biggest bang for your buck!

Have you seen the new Build a Snowman clear stamp set in the Some Odd Girl shop?  Well I’ll have you know, there are more than snowmen to be built with this fun set!

I have a bit of a thing for cute couples in stamping.  Gingerbread girls and boys, smiling spice jars, a little Royal (ribbit!) love, Mae and Kody, a happy toaster and happy bread, etc…  And throw on some cute, customized happy faces, and KAWAII!  Instant happiness for this here orange girl.

Today’s card features the tree from Build a Snowman, and I opted to create a happy little wintry couple using the accessory stamps from the set to turn these trees into a loving couple.  Voila!

Yep, they’re in love, and that’s what’s gonna keep them warm this season! 

Isn’t everything just THAT MUCH MORE AWESOME with a happy face?

You can grab this awesome Build a Snowman set HERE and then you can make cute tree and snow couples into the wee hours of the morning!  What a fun way to wish a newlywed couple happy holidays, right?

Goeiedag or in English hello!!
It’s Ellen here today (from now on I’ll be teaching you some Dutch words – hihi!).

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I like to make something different than a card. That’s why I’ve got two DIY (Do It Yourself) projects to show today!

The first thing I did was easier than I thought it would be. I transferred a digital image (here Tia and Fluffy) onto a pencil case. If you are interested in making this project, you need a non-printed pencil case (or a t-shirt, something else) and transfer paper. The instructions on the transfer paper will tell you how to do it (mostly you iron the image onto your object).

 

The second project is a homemade keychain. This is something super fun! For this you need charms, paper, a small stamp, Glossy Accents (Crackle Accents work great for a vintage look!) and maybe some extra charms. First you make your design for the inside of the charm (on this one I used different items from the Cat Lady Kaylee clear stamp set). Once you have your design all set you can cut out the circle (with dies, a punch or even with scissors). After that you glue your circle in the charm and put glossy accents over the circle. Let it dry (this takes a while) then you can customize it however you like.

 


Have an awesome weekend, and don’t forget on Monday we’re back with a new release!!!
