Good morning Odd friends, happy to find you here today it’s me, Sadia, writing today, and I’d like to share with you my peek a boo card step by step. I made this for a very special friend, and thougth this was the perfect structure to contai a very special message… let’s start:

First of all you need to cut e pieces of bazzil, I used white to keep it cleen and simple, size 5 1/2″ x 8 1/4″, 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ , 5 1/2″ x 5 3/4″, and make the windows in the first and second pcs, in the same spot. I made the heart with my cameo, but you can use a die, and make them both at the same time, to be sure the hole is in the right position.

Once you made he hole, you can score the paper, put the 5 1/2″ x 8 1/4″ bazzil on the scoring board and score at 2 3/4″, then place the 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ bazzil on the scoring board and score at 4 1/4″ , and fold. Place thelast piece of bazzil on the scoring board and score at 5 1/2″ and fold along the score line.this will be the back of the card as shown in the next picture.

Put the paper in the way I show you in the picture, and adhere the first 2 large parts, as shown in the pic, and for the last add the small one for the back.

Now you can place the colore image, I used Tropical Piper and Gaze digi stamp, and I colored them with copic, you need to place it exactly in the opened spot of the window, but in the middle part of the card. 

Afterward you can place the sentiment, I printed it with a printer and made an off set with the sketch pen of my cameo, and you need to place it in the back, the last layer of the card, in the spot  correspondent to  the window when you open the card, make sure it is the right size to be hidden when you close the card. To make sure it is the right size, I used the hole frame as you can see in the picture.

and that’s that… here is my card, I hope you enjoyed it and it was clear enough…

have you all a great day

Hi all it’s Anna Sigga here today and today is all about shaker-cards!

I just love the Fist Pump Tobie stamp and why not add lost of sequins to give this dude that something extra!

I had already colored Tobie with my Copic markers and you I share how I made this shaker-card in the video below as well as my mistake. I was planning on editing this lil mistakes out of the vid but why not share how I managed to salvage the card.

Thanks for watching and don’t forget to use #SOMEODDGIRL when share your Odd-creations on social media.

Good morning friends. Today I’m sharing how I made this background featuring Cat fish digi stamp.

I got these distress oxide inks for mothers day and wanted to do something fun and quick. The whole background took about 5 minutes and it was super fun to make.

To start I cut down a piece of 110lb card-stock to 8.5 x 4.25 and scored it in half for my card base.

I started working from the outside towards the center adding a little bit of color at a time.

This is faded jeans. Then I add in broken china.

Next is spice marmalade.
I love how the colors blend together so easily. Next is fossilized amber.
I liked the look of the background, but wanted to add a touch of texture as well. I grabbed a fish scale stencil and cracked pistachio and lightly sponged the color on through the stencil.

Cute, right? Now, while I was coloring this adorable little cat fish… my coloring got away from me. I do not know WHAT on earth I was doing, but I didn’t love what I had done to this poor cutie. See.

I didn’t want to start over, so I decided to give this little guy glasses.

Ahhh, now he kinda makes sense to me, and he’s cute again. *grins*

There we have it. What backgrounds have you created that are quick and fun? Let us know!!
