Some Odd Girl - Mini Innertube

Hello again and happy Friday! Have you checked out the new release from Some Odd Girl  stamps, Mini Innertube? 

 This girl image screams Summer. She is ready to hop in the water and have some fun. First off, I wanted to layer some patterned paper in the background. I used several shapes from C.C. Designs (scalloped Rectangle, Stitched Oval, Stitched Rectangle, and a sun and water waves shape) to cut the paper.


She is colored with Copic markers. I wanted her swim suit to be full on glittery, I used Yellow Stickles to cover it up, as well as her slippers. For the finishing touch, I added a trio of yellow enamel dots from my "bling" box.

Some Odd Girl - Hello

Hey everyone, happy Friday! Today's post I'm using an image from Some Odd Girl  stamps, Kimono Kaylee. 

 She was pretty easy to color, for the most part, I only used two colors (red/black). My medium of choice of course is Copics. The background is a square grid die from Mama Elephant and I placed a vellum sheet behind it. I had a stitched heart die cut in my stash and I stamped a bamboo image on the side.


I'm really into using my Silhouette this year and I'm loving the sentiments from SOG. "Hello" is from the This Moment Sentiment Pack and I cut it out of red cardstock. I had some bamboo svg files on on hand and it fit perfect with the theme.

Princess

Hi everyone, happy Tuesday! 
Here's a card using the Princess Diary Digital Papers from Mindy Terasawa Designs. 

I paired the papers with this Princess stamp from The Greeting Farm and a fuchsia pink cardstock. I did a little cut & paste with the crown from another image just to make it match the papers. The sentiment Everyday Greetings stamp set and Framed Tags Columbus Circle are from Mama Elephant. The image is colored with Copics. I added three pink enamel dots on the bottom right corner to complete my card.

The Greeting Farm - July Guest Designer


Hi everyone, I am super excited to announce that I will be a Guest Designer for The Greeting Farm for the month of July! My history with TGF goes way back to guesting in 2012, being on the Design Team in 2013, and guesting again in 2015. If you haven't realized it yet, I love The Greeting Farm.

Today's project share is my July monthly layout in my planner (Hobonichi A6). It's my birthday month so I went all out and used several stamp sets:



The images were stamped onto sticker paper for easy application. I used my Copic markers to color all the images and had no issues blending. To add some sparkle, I used Star Dust Stickles.

Skin: E00/E11/BV00/R81/R83
Hair: E71/E74/E79
Pinks: R81/R83/R85
Turquoise: BG10/BG13/BG15
Yellow: Y13/YR23


The pages of my planner measure roughly 4x6, so all the images fit perfectly. If you want to use these colored images again and don't have the time to color, here's a TIP: Once your full page of images are colored, scan the page and keep it on file. When you are ready, pull up the file and print it out onto sticker paper and it's ready to go.

I hope you guys enjoyed my little project using these cute planner stamps. Thank you so much for stopping by. See you soon for more projects!

Some Odd Girl Design Team and July Freebie

 Hi everyone! Today I'm excited to share that I am on the Some Odd Girl Design Team! I used to be on the DT back in 2016 and I took a break (because I was expecting my first baby). That "break" turned out to be a two year hiatus LOL. Now fast forward to 2019 and I'm back b*tches!

 Here I am using the JULY FREEBIE image Cancer. July is my birthday month and she is kickass! I paired her up with Ninja Tobie. I created a mini fight scene by having these two characters face each other. For the background, I used a grid die from Mama Elephant and backed it up with vellum paper. The banner is from Lawn Fawn and I hand wrote the sentiment. Finally the images are adhered by foam adhesive for dimension.

Aloha - I Am Roses June Challenge


Hi everyone! Today a new challenge is up at the I Am Roses Challenge Blog

Welcome back to my blog, it's been a while and I have a project for you! Here I created a card using an image/sentiment from The Greeting Farm stamps. This was an image that I had colored previously and she went well with the papers that I wanted to work with. These digital papers are from Mindy Terasawa Designs. I love the navy and peach color combo.


I framed her out using a doily die and flowers from I Am Roses. I chose a deep navy colored flower (S15) and a small crochet flower, centered with a peach/gold gem. The mini lilies are a perfect peach color (LY3) and accented with white flowers (S10).
