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.

Hi there Oddies!

Here am I, Ellen, with a little Monday movie.

As you probably already know, I like to make interactive cards. With this post I like to show you a pop up card I made with different Some Odd Girl stamps sets.

The outside is rather simple. I stamped a lot paw prints and a sentiment that triggers the recipient to open the card (stamp sets: “Cat Lady – Kaylee Clear Stamp” and “On Safari – Clear Stamp“). The inside is a pop up part made with some outside stamps and a dog that’s ready to party (stamp sets: “Build a Snowman – Clear Stamp“, “Owl-ween – Clear Stamp“, “Preppy Pups – Clear Stamp“, “Party Girl Gwen – Clear Stamp” and “Cupcake Mae-  Clear Stamp“).


If you want to see the complete process to make this card check out the video below!!!

Happy Monday!! Some Odd Girl wishes you an awesome week!

 

Welcome to a new week Oddies! Kristy here with you on this fine Monday with a quick bit of inspiration for you. Movie Monday’s will be making a comeback in February so leave any requests below in the comments.

Now I know that we all have a bit of a love affair with coloring, might have markers, pencils, paints and pens even, but sometimes all you need is one good stamp.

For this card I liked the idea of just featuring the image with bright ink on a neutral background, the little pop of washi tape keeps it from looking out of place but still makes for quite an eye catching card. You can even recolor your digi stamps to get the same look from your color printer. 

The best part is it will only take you 10 minutes or less to finish! Clean up may take longer, we don’t create just one card in a sitting, am I right?  

So the next time you are in the cardmaking mood but not in the coloring mood, or are out of time, try this little technique and have some fast fun.
