It's an EGG-stravaganza!

This has been a week full of fun new releases over at Some Odd Girl.  Have you checked out the cute new clear sets and new digis??  If you haven't, what are you waiting for???  Go see what's new in the shop.  While you're there, take a look at my video tutorial that's up on the blog today. It will show you how to use the new clear sets (Bunny Girl Gwen and Hip Hop Hooray) to decorate Easter eggs and make little egg stands. 
 
Here is a little peek of the finished project...
 
 
CUTE, huh??  If you want to find out how to make them for yourself, just head over to the Some Odd Girl blog and watch the video.
 
Let me know what you think and tell me if give it a try yourself.

Hip Hop Hooray!!

I'm back today with another NEW clear stamp set from Some Odd Girl.  This one is called Hip Hop Hooray. {Makes me think of that song from the 80's.  Remember it??} This set has 2 adorable bunnies, a carrot, an Easter basket, and 4 sentiments.
 
 
Here are a couple of Easter crafts I made using this set...
The little basket on the eggs stand is colored with markers.  For the goody bag, I just stamped the bunny onto pink card stock and the basket onto yellow card stock (I paper pieced the grass and eggs on). I added a little shading with chalks. That's an easy way to get color if you don't have markers or colored pencils.  The title is stamped onto washi tape using StazOn ink.
 
 
You'll want to hop on over to the Some Odd Girl blog so you can see the EGG-celent creations made by the other Odd Girls.  Trust me, they are crazy cute and you will not want to miss them!! While you are there, check out the NEW Odds&Ends Spring Bling Mix and Triangle sequins in the shop.

Bunny Girl Gwen

I have something for you today that will add a little happy to your Monday! I am going to introduce you to Bunny Girl Gwen, the newest clear stamp set from Some Odd Girl.  She is super fun with her cute ears, tail, and GIANT carrot. Perfect for Easter cards, spring crafts, and scrappy pages.
 
I colored Gwen with markers and paper pieced her skirt.  The sentiment is heat embossed. In addition to Gwen, this set comes with 3 sentiment stamps and 1 heart shaped stamp. 
 
 Click on over to the Some Odd Girl blog to see what the other Odd Girls created with Gwen.  While you are there check out the Linky Party we have going on. It's a fun and easy way to show everyone your Odd crafts.
 
Drop back by tomorrow to see another NEW Some Odd Girl clear stamp set.

I'm an Odd Girl...again!

Hi everyone! I am super excited to announce that I am on the Some Odd Girl Design Team for my 3rd term!! I just LOVE the Odd Family, so getting to be a part of this group for another term is magical to me.  This term will be a year long and we have two teams....our digi girls and our clear stamp girls.  I will be on the clear stamp team.  We have a lot of fun and different things coming your way, so stop by the blog frequently...you don't want to miss anything! 
 
 
The Odd Girls were asked to share their favorite Some Odd Girl project.  Narrowing it down was  hard...really really hard because I love them all, but here is one I finally decided on.  I picked this project because I love Snow White for sentimental reasons (I sorta even look like her) and that big apple background just makes me smile. You can't get much better than an ODD Snow White!

I used the clear stamp set Snow White
 
I hope you take a minute to go over the Some Odd Girl blog and meet all of the Odd Girls.  Say hello and leave them love.  Thanks for stopping by!

Good Fortune Card

I wanted to make a card for the Lawnscaping Challenge, "Clean and Simple" so I broke out my Good Fortune set and got to work.  Who knew clean and simple could be so...well, challenging. ;-)
 
 
 I've always thought fortune cookies were such fun.  Getting a pile of good fortune on your birthday is even better!  This card uses the Good Fortune set, along with the coordinating Lawn Cuts dies, and is colored with Copics.  That's pretty much all there is to it.  Easy, clean, and simple.
 
Thanks for stopping by!

Pot 'O Gold!

There is a new challenge up at the Some Odd Girl blog and it's all about GOLD.  Perfect for March and St. Patty's Day!  There are so many different ways to interpret this challenge...you could a little or a lot...think gold and come play along with us!
 
Since the gold challenge made me think of St. Patrick's Day, I decided to make a fun treat box full of GOLD candies with a super cute rainbow tag. 
 
 
The tag is made using Fluffy Love (digi stamp) and Make a Statement (clear set).  I heat embossed the word "enjoy" with gold glitter embossing powder and I also embossed around the edges.
 
 
Get all of the challenge details at the Some Odd Girl blog and link up.  Who knows, you might be our winner for find your self spotlighted on a Friday post!
