Here they are.. My Some Odd Girl Design Team Submissions

Here they are! Three of my designs that I submitted for my Some Odd Girl Design Team application.
For this one I used the Sock Hop stamp set from My Style Stamps which can be found here www.mystylestamps.com and colored her in with Spectrum Noir markers. I then took black card stock and die cut out random hearts with a heart from the My Creative Time Stitched Sweethearts & XOXO Dies. I found a single sheet of pink and white animal print paper and cut it down to fit behind the open die cut hearts. I stamped a sentiment and music notes from the same stamp set inside one of the hearts with black ink. I found an old piece of matching solid fushia colored paper and embossed it with music notes from an embossing folder from The Paper Studio. Lastly, I added attached my gal with some foam dots and then finished the card by adding some enamel dots that I made. (I will be adding a tutorial soon on how I made these enamel dots by melting mini pony beads)
For my second card I used the adorable Some Odd Girl clear stamp sets Preppy Pups and Clever which can be found here www.someoddgirl.com I colored them using my Spectrum Noir markers. My base card stock is Crisp Cantaloupe from Stampin Up and the back ground card stock is some old scrap card stock I had. I felt it needed to be jazzed up so I used some clear liquid glue to make some strips and sprinkles some white iridescent over the glue. Viola, I had a blinged background :) I then took three colors of string from my daughters friendship bracelet stash and wrapped it at the bottom in a straight line. I also wanted it to look like the kitty made a mess of the string so I made little balls to look like yarn and glued some of it loosely on the card even wrapping it around the kitty. As I was laying it down I got an idea to form a heart into it as well. To finish it off I stamped some sentiments from the set onto some scrap card stock, I took some Stampin Up ink pad colors that matched to trim the edges of my sentiment bubbles by rolling the edges around the ink pad, added some plastic bows to the kitten and puppy, and also added some rhinestones to give the puppy a diamond color :) Oh, and I popped up the puppy, kitten, and sentiment bubbles with foam dots.

For my last card I used this beautiful clear stamp set from Some Odd Girl called First Dance Mae which can be found here at  www.someoddgirl.com  Again I colored them using Spectrum Noir markers. I used black card stock for the base and background behind the couple. I also used Coastal Cabana card stock from Stampin Up to attach to the top of the black card stock. I embossed the Coastal Cabana card stock and black center card stock with embossing folders from Sizzix. The flowers came from Michael's Crafts that I found in their dollar bin. The sentiment came from a My Favorite Things stamp set (sad to say they no longer make this stamp set). I stamped the sentiment onto a mint colored vellum using Versa Mark then I sprinkled black detailed embossing powder and heat set it. I hand cut the vellum into a banner shape.To make my trim at the bottom of the card just behind the banner, I found some matching ribbon and attached it to some strips I cut from some black card stock. Lastly I used foam dots to pop up my couple, I added oval enamel dots that I made, and using glue dots I positioned the vellum banner to make it appear as though it was raised off the card.

This is the inside of the card. The corners I made using the My Favorite Things "Four Corners" Die-Namics, The first sentiment is from the Stampin' Up "See You Later" set, all of the remaining sentiments (except for celebrate) are from the My Creative Time "Chocolate Greetings" set, the hearts are from My Creative Time "Stitched Sweetheart & XOXO Dies" set, envelope came from My Creative Time as well - It's called the "Mini Stitched Envelope Die" and lastly the celebrate sentiment as well as the wine glasses came from Oriental Trading Company "Celebrate" clear stamp set. The black ink was Momento "Tuxedo Black", the teal ink is from Studio G, and the silver is actually Smooch Pearl Accents.

  1. Hi, Charity! These are so cute! I really like the unwound yarn on the kitten and puppy card. Thank you so much for your comment on my post with the cross stamp. It is a stamp, (Grunge Cross) from Our Daily Bread Designs and it really is quite stunning. Have a great day.

  2. wow! What a beautiful anniversary card! Love the color combo!
    A while ago, you asked me the color combo of brown hair on a notebook that I decorated ... (wanted to send you a Facebook message...
    we aren't friends over there) LOL I don't write down my color combos while I make a card. :/
    Brown combos that I use a lot: E30-E31-E33 + E29 or E57 / E33-E35-E37-E39 and I sometimes add E29 or E57 ....

    1. Thank you so much Lenny! And thank you so much for the color combos. I have Spectrum Noir colors but I actually just bought my first Copics today. I only got 5 markers but I'm pretty excited over those 5 ;) Now I only have about 300 and some left to get, lol! I definitely will be getting some of the colors you mentioned so I can give the hair a try because I just love how you colored the brown hair! (Oh... if you ever want to add me as a friend on Facebook just send me a request :) I don't like to pester fellow crafters with requests on their personal pages in case they prefer to keep their page 'personal') Have a blessed weekend and Thank you again!!!

    1. That would be awesome if you could do that because I absolutely love the purples, so I would use them a lot more if I could get the darker purples to blend. I sent a friend request on Facebook :) Thank you so much again! I really appreciate it!
