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.

Music-Mae-Mixed-Tape-Card-by-Kristy-Dalman-Some-Odd-Girl  

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.

 

Good morning, and happy Monday, everybody!

Leah here, and it’s definitely time for a brand new digi release at Some Odd Girl!

You’ve all been waiting for this, right?  We’ve been just as anxious, I promise!  But the day has arrived and it’s our very first, and very fun, release for 2016!
You might have caught a little sneak here or there, if you were hanging out in our Facebook Community, or maybe if you were peeking around Instagram (#someoddgirl)…
and you MIGHT have ogled the gorgeous work of our fabulous Odd Girls in the projects we’re about to share.  Are you ready?  CHECK THESE OUT!

So yes.  There that is.  Two super cute new digis for you to grab HERE, and to share with us HERE

Have we mentioned it’s a really exciting time for Some Odd Girl?  And that we’re celebrating a BIRTHDAY?!  Come and join us in the Facebook Community all week for fun goings-on and good times and help us celebrate!  There MIGHT be some games.  There MIGHT be some challenges.  There MIGHT be some secrets revealed!  There will definitely be a lot of interaction and probably some silliness.  That’s something we Odd Girls take pride in.  🙂 

Hi Everyone! Ellen here with you today with homemade packaging. During the Christmas season, it’s sometimes difficult to find a perfect present for certain individuals. That’s why I still occasionally give money or a gift card. To make that package more fun, I re-use packaging and make it pretty.

The first thing I want to show you is a gift box I decorated. I punched out some stars to make confetti for the inside and for the outside I used the Santa Clear Stamp. (Remember when you’re looking for gifts for people, the most plain and boring packaging is sometimes the BEST, because you can pretty it up!)


The next item is for a gift card or money. I re-used a gift card packaging and decorated it with some awesome stamps: Build a Snowman Clear Stamp and Hipster Pets Clear Stamp (currently out of stock, but we’ll have more!). For the sentiments, inside and outside, I used the Santa Clear Stamp.


Have a lot fun around the Christmas table! And if you are a gift specialist, be sure to show us some fun ideas in de linky party on the left, on Instagram using the hashtag #SomeOddGirl or in our Facebook Community.  We love being inspired by YOU!!
