Good morning, Oddies! Alexis here with a simple card that I made using Curtsy Gwen digi stamp. Have you ever just felt really good about your coloring on an image? That’s how I felt after coloring this stamp, so I wanted to keep the card fairly simple because I wanted the focus mainly on the image and the coloring of those intricate dress folds that were so much fun! I love those kinds of details in an image and I think when you spend so much time coloring a stamp, you don’t want to over complicate the card around it.

I used a sentiment from a retired Some Odd Girl clear set, which seemed super appropriate for this image and will work great for a Birthday, Thank You or Love card. I stamped the sentiment on a strip of vellum and adhered it over part of my image, so that you could still see my coloring, but it would add some interest to the card overall. A few sequins and blamo! Cute card fit for royalty. Or at least a friend or family member you like a lot.

Hi Oddies! If you’re like me, you absolutely love the adorable critters and objects that Kristy’s imagination keeps coming up with. From grinning broccoli to wizard bandits, the store is filled with things to make us go “SQUEEE!”. And, of course, us card-makers can kick the cuteness up a notch by adding fun patterns, colors and shapes.

For my card today, I used the absolutely ADORBS crab from Party Crab digi. This little guy is ready to celebrate any occasion with you, especially birthdays. And to make my go that extra mile, I went mini and circular. I die-cut two circles out of cardstock and adhered them together at the top to make a unique-shaped card. Since this was a birthday card, I could use my favorite bright colors and match them up with a fun birthday pattern for my background. Just a sticker sentiment and a couple enamel shapes, and this cute creation is done!
