Some Odd Girl - Dressy Mae

Hi and I'm back with another card for you this Friday! The image I used is Dressy Mae Digi Stamp and Loopy Sentiments V3 from Some Odd Girl 


This beautiful image is colored with Copic markers. A touch of blue color in her hair gives the more blue/black hair tone. The blush on her cheeks are not colored with Copics, I used a pink chalk and applicator for a more natural look. I paired her up with flowers from I Am Roses. Several die cut shapes (stitched rectangles, scalloped rectangles, stitched ovals) were layered as the base for the image. I cut the sentiment "too fabulous" from Loopy Sentiments V3 in my Silhouette. Finishing touches, I added white dots for freckles and on her dress with a Copic opaque white paint. The texture on her eyelid is achieved with Stickles.

August IAR Challenge - Mr. & Mrs.

Happy Thursday! Here's my card for the new challenge at the I Am Roses Challenge Blog. One of my friends is getting married and I created this card using her wedding colors.


I created a letter board by cutting two squares in different sizes and I scored the black cardstock to mimic grooves for the letters. I happened to have the perfect size alpha die to cut out "Mr & Mrs".


I used some wood grain pattern paper on the base of the card, added some b&w striped ribbon and some cream tulle before I added the letter board. Two types of leaves begin the base of my floral arrangement (rose and skeleton leaves). I layered several varieties of flowers and sizes in the colors lime green and white. Lastly, I inserted individual stamen in and around the flowers.

That is my card for the August IAR Challenge, hope you and my friend like it =)

Some Odd Girl - Scientist Tia

Hello everyone, happy Friday! We have a new digi release and she is Scientist Tia. I used the sentiment from Valentine Sentiments V1 as well. 


For the background, I used various splatter stamps (Catherine Pooler) and pigment inks (Mommy Lhey). Tia is colored with Copic markers. Both her and the sentiment are adhered with dimensional foam dots. The great thing about digital stamps is that you can size it any way you want so that they fit your project. This card is kept CAS style (Clean And Simple).

Hope you give her a try and she pairs perfectly with Mad Scientist Tobie.

Some Odd Girl - Leo

Happy August! It's FREEBIE time. Today I'm sharing this card using Leo and Kitty Pjs Tia from Some Odd Girl Stamps. Leo is part of the Zodiac Collection, and this month only, you can pick it up at the shop for FREE!


I went for humor when creating this card. This is so me when trying to recreate a look on Instagram or watching a beauty tutorial on YouTube. It never turns out quite the same LOL. I paired these two images together because that's what I and many others have experienced.

Leo and Kitty are colored with Copic markers. The VS is an alpha die set from C.C. Designs. The sentiments "expectation" & "reality" are handwritten by me on some black cardstock with a white gel pen. Lastly, I cut some yellow polka dot pattern paper with a stitched oval die for the base of the images.

You can use this card for a funny hello or even for Halloween, which is coming up...sort of.

The Greeting Farm - You Mermaid to be Awesome

Hi everyone, this is my last project as July Guest Designer for The Greeting Farm. I had such an amazing time creating again with TGF images. By far this is one of my favorite cards. I used two stamp sets:



I knew I wanted to have a mermaid inside the glass bottle. I chose which images I wanted and colored them all with Copics. This was the first time I ever colored the whole background with markers. Next, I stamped the sentiment on the bottom left corner, I tried not to color the paper too dark. I then fussy cut all the images and started to build the scene. I layered and stacked the only seaweed image in the Little Mermaids stamp set. I wanted it to look lush and full. The base of the background is a wave die. 

Skin: E00/E11/BV00/R81/R20
Pinks: RV04/RV19/RV69
Purples: V12/V15/V17/V09
Greens: YG03/YG67/G14/G43
Yellow: Y13/YR23
Teal: BG13/BG15/BG23/BG49
Sand: E31/E35/E29
Sand Castle: Y13/YR23/E31/E33/E29
Red Coral: R27


The fishes were actually stamped/colored on sticker paper and made it easy to adhere to the card. The final touches were to add some Stickles (Star Dust & Yellow) to a few images. I also used a white gel pen to add freckles to the mermaid.

I'd like to thank Marie and The Greeting Farm for having me as a Guest Designer. Thank you so much for letting me share my creations. 'Til we meet again!

Some Odd Girl - Genie Gwen

Good Morning! Today I'm sharing this card using Genie Gwen and Loopy Sentiments V4 from Some Odd Girl Stamps. 


This card was kept pretty simple. I used a stitched background die for the base. The gold sequins and rhinestones were adhered with Glossy Accents. I wanted to add a sentiment, so using my Silhouette, I chose the "hello" word from Loopy Sentiments V4. Gwen is colored with Copic Markers and popped up with dimensional adhesive. For that added sparkle, I used Gold, Turquoise and Star Dust Stickles.

The Greeting Farm - Believe in Magic

Hi everyone, I'm back with my second project share as July Guest Designer for The Greeting Farm. I made a fairy shaker card combining two stamp sets:



I used most of the fairy images, sentiment and mushrooms in the Little Fairies set. I used my Copic markers for coloring. The fairies' wings are glittered with Star Dust Stickles. For the base, I layered two background dies (wood grain & stitched waves frame). I used Tea Dye Distress Ink to color the wood. 

Skin: E00/E11/BV00/R81/R83
Brown Hair: E71/E74/E79
Pinks: R81/R83/R85
Purples: V12/V15/V17
Greens: YG03/YG67/G14
Yellow: Y13/YR23
Wings: B0000/B00
Mushrooms: R27/R39/E31/E35/E37
Stone: W1/W3/W5
Soil: E31/E35
Pot: E99/E29/E09


The image for the shaker element is from Fairy Garden. I fussy cut the inside of the image with a precision knife and left a portion of the foliage/steps in the front. Inside the shaker are some stars and a heart crystal. 

This was very fun to create and I hope you try this little scene for yourself. Thanks again for stopping by!
