Hey ODD lovers, Melissa here today to share some boy birthday inspiration with you.  It seems I don’t always have an easy time creating cards for boys so I challenged myself.  Once I got started my “boy creative block” vanished, and I had so much fun.

This card features Astro Tobie digi image and the sentiment is from the stamp set Big Wishes Mae.

Hello-cl1

What you need: card-stock, 2 pieces of patterned papers, Sweet Mae digi stamp, a gold doily, sequins, coloring medium, flowers, ink & adhesive.

Hello5

Cut the card-stock to 5,5×8,5 inches and score at 4 2/4 inches. Cut two pieces of patterned papers – one paper cut at 4 1/8 x 5 1/8 and the other one cut at 3 3/4 x 5. Ink the edges and adhere them to the card-base.

Hello4

Adhere the gold doily to the center and fuzzy cut the digi stamp and adhere using foam adhesive.

Hello3

Start adding your choice of die-cuts  on two opposite corner of the stamped image. Start by adding the larger images down first and then add the bulkier embellishments.

Hello-cl3

When you are happy with your choice of embellishments add your sentiment at the bottom using foam adhesive.

Elle here with a big welcome to Wonder Odd-land! A place of marvels! A place of fun! And a place where you can find charming and whimsical stamps like Teacup Alice.

Teacup-Alice-ElleL

Alice, here, dared me to be brave and free-hand some simple teacup patterns with Copics and a white gel pen. She also pushed me to dig deep in my crafty stash and find some alphabet thickers with polka-dots to match my coloring. And, lastly, Alice was totally cool with bright, happy palette I’m drawn to when it comes to my Copic coloring and the fact that I had no blue ribbon and had to settle for pink…

My favorite thing about Some Odd Girl stamps is that each stamp has a story that inspires me and brightens my mood – sometimes to downright silly fun. So I tip my cup to Teacup Alice and smile at the silly fun I had creating with her and then writing about it.

Do you have any fun stories about how an Odd stamp inspired you? I’d love to hear about it! Leave a comment or come hang out with us in Some Odd Girl’s Facebook community.
