Cat Wizard Card

SOG New Release Day 5

It is the last day of the Some Odd Girl new release! We have my two favorite images (from the release today), although you’ll find only Cat Wizard here. For the Foxy lady, head on over the Some Odd Girl Blog. :)

Cat Wizard Card

Cat Wizard Card

This is by far a fav layout of mine as well. I find it so interesting to blow up a digital image and color only a part of the image. It adds for such interest!

I fell so much in love with the MFT Stitched Edges that I bought Lawn Fawn’s Stitched Borders. The straight dies will allow me to do pretty much whatever I can think of. ;) For this card I went with a square border.

The circle background stamps are no-name clear stamps I just bought on the cheap. Not great quality, but I like the added interest to my background. Plus, it continues the “stitched” look.

Cat Wizard Details

Cat: YR02, YR07, YR21, E31, E35
Cape/hat: E23, E25, E27, E29
Wood/Rope: E55, E57, E59 
Bag: E51, E53, E55, E57, E59
Blue: B28, B95, B97
Red: R24, R59
Gold: YR26, YR28

I used lots of browns in this one, wanting to play with the subtle nuance differences between the E50’s and E20’s. While I’m loving the way the cat came out, I have to admit that wasn’t my intention. :) In the middle of laying down my first two layers the LO had a major fight with her last feed – the milk won and was promptly launched onto the hubby and I had to go help clean them both up. Lol When I came back those layers had tried, so I ran with it as it was. I did laid down my lightest YR color (YR21) and then blended in some YR02. The result came out quite well and I hope to do that style of coloring again – on purpose!

SOG New Release Day 4

For Day 4 of our wonderful Some Odd Girl new release we have the cutest most terrifying bunny ever – Bunny Vampire!

I hope you have been following along on the Some Odd Girl Blog. There is just too many images for me to have had done here, plus we have some really talented ladies – so check ’em out!

Bunny Vampire Card

Bunny Vampire Card

Ack this layout! I’m totally in love with it. Again, I used the MFT Stitched Basic Edges. One of the reasons why I picked that die set versus others was due to the fact that there are four different edges to choose from.

The papers are from the Glitz Raven collection. I liked the idea of using the orange behind the black to give off a harvest moon rising behind a hill that Bunny Vampire is standing on. :) A little whimsical gold stamping on top adds a little surreal bling to the whole thing.

Bunny: N0, N1, R00, R22, R24
Cape: C3, C5, C7, C9
Necklace: Y13, Y17, Y28
Shadows: BV20, BV23

I’m seriously pleased with my coloring on this one. The white bunny has shadows in all the right places, yet looks a little menacing with that reddish nose of his. The cape, though, is my favorite. I’m so happy with how it turned out. It just goes to show how much better your markers can be when maintained! ;)


SOG New Release Day 3

Here we are on Day 3 of the SOG New Release with Sorceress in Training! The new images so far have been awesome! The Design Team has also rocked their samples – so check ’em out!

Sorceress in Training Card


I bought the most awesome dies for my birthday. They are the My Favorite Things STITCHED BASIC EDGES Die-Namics. Seriously – why haven’t I bought them before? I love everything about the dies! It made quick work of a layout, so that I could concentrate on other things – like a drooling, giggling, sleepy baby. :)

Broom: Y21, Y26, Y28

I couldn’t help myself with her coloring. Magic-wielding women have red hair – at least according the hubby. ;) I also though she looked more like she was cleaning out cobwebs so the yellow rubber gloves came out!

Sharkcat Card

SOG New Release Day 2

Well hello and Happy Tuesday! We are celebrating Day 2 of our Halloween release over on the Some Odd Girl Blog, so don’t forget to hop over there for more samples and see the second image released today!

What can I say about my own card? I LOVE it! The image is such a fun one, who doesn’t want a cat in a shark costume?!?

Shark Cat Card

Sharkcat Card

I decided to do a non-Halloween card for this guy, because his awesomeness extends far beyond one night of the year, even if that night is the bestest ever!

The cardbase is also from Some Odd Girl! The tag coming out is so awesome, and it is exactly that that makes it so different than others. If you haven’t checked them out before, take a look at all the SOG cardbases here. :) The svg’s are silly easy to import into the Silhouette library or Sure Cuts Alot.

Shark Cat Close

Cat: E40, E41, E23, E25, E27, E29
Shark: BV20, BV23, BV25, 0

I went for a pretty realistic shark costume. The blue-grey violets really produced the look I was going for, however, to add a little whimsy, I did add a red stripe to the teeth – a little homage to the shark cat riding a roomba.

I’ve been playing around with how my critters look. I have go-to color combos and after awhile it isn’t as challenging. Also, when I color an image like this it is easier for me to break it into sections that I can work 5-10 minutes at a time on.

2016 new release

SOG New Release Day 1

Hello and welcome to September! Over on the Some Odd Girl blog, we are celebrating a week long SOG New Release!

I’m so excited for all the wonderful images. So hop over and take a look at what scarily good digital stamp is available today!

2016 new release

Also, stay tuned here at The Zadis Project for my own samples for the rest of the week. Two of the SOG New Release images are used in non-Halloween cards. ;)

Nerd Bird Card

Nerd Bird is the Word.

Bird. Bird. Bird is the word. da da dada da. :) Now that you have the song stuck in your head I wanted to show you a card that I made using Nerd Bird by Some Odd Girl.

Nerd Bird Card

A lovely little layout from the Silhouette Store and Cloud 9 digital papers from Tracie Stroud really make this card interesting. The hexagon cut outs are super cool, as well as it using lots of different papers, which always adds more interest.

I added some subtle stamping on the corners – to  hide a rip in the card. (gasp!) However, I really like how the stamping adds just a bit of dimension to the otherwise boring kraft.

E55, E57, E59, E79
Eyes: Y06, Y15, Y17
Beak: N3, N6, N8

Mixing and matching browns for Nerd Bird was a bit hard, but fun. I love my E30’s, but owls have a lot of dimension and dark wings so I went with the E50’s to get that contrast. The bright golden eyes came out so well!

I created this card for the newest Some Odd Girl Facebook challenge. To find out what the challenge is, head over the group!

Also, we have a fun Halloween release coming up, so keep your eye out for that!

Summery Mae Card

A Summery Mae redo

Hey man! So I’m back (again) with yet another post on the Some Odd Girl blog. I didn’t plan on having two posts there this week, but when ideas grab me I sign up! You’ll definitely want to catch the post though and see a fail of a card transform into this Summery Mae beauty. :)

I won’t go into detail about the layout or anything, so you’ll have to check out the Some Odd Girl post. ;)

Flip flops: N3, N6, N8
Shadows: BV0000, BV04

Lots of colors on this one. I really was going for how I would want to look if I was Mae. :) I especially love her silver-pink hair! When I go grey, I’m totally going for this look. Not before mind you, stripping my hair of all color doesn’t sound too healthy to me.

Angry Persian Card

Angry Persian Ironic

Good day everyone! I’m over on the Some Odd Girl blog again with a cute little card using Angry Persian! Besides using The Zadis Project to share my cards with you, I use it as a creative diary. :D One that I can easily reference while coloring and making sure that I keep up on my communication skills. So that is why below you will find my Copic choices, as well as my inspiration for my coloring.

Angry Persian Card

I have some hot tips on the Some Odd Girl blog on how to fill in/correct sentiment stamps. Totally worth checking out! Plus there is a link to Kristy’s fab tutorial on how to combine digital stamps with the fab accessories!

The papers are Glitz Dapper Dan – so perfect for that hat! However perfect the papers though, I opted to use Hipster Kody’s sentiment as well. It really added a fab touch to the “no, thank you”. :D

I wanted to share my inspiration for my coloring, as well as write down what colors I use. This was my first time using a real picture as a reference. While I see I didn’t color the paws or face dark enough, I’m still extremely happy with how he turned out!


While I might have given a lot of information, it is still worth checking out the Some Odd Girl blog. If not for today’s post, but for all the wonderful work that the Odd Girls put up there. :D And don’t forget to leave a little love.

Mr Octopus Lots of Hugs Card

Lots of Hugs

I’m over on the Some Odd Girl blog today with a tutorial! Here is a sneak peek at Mr Octopus Clear Stamp, but hop on over to the blog to learn how I created a great wave scene with just papers. :D

Fox Girl from Ppinkydolls

Fox Girl

Good morning/afternoon/evening! I’m here with a super sweet card using Fox Girl from Ppinkydolls. It was a freebie for the 10 000 Member Party for Kit & Clowder on Facebook.

Fox Girl

Fox Girl from Ppinkydolls

The layout is yet another from my Silhouette Library, although I glued it on crooked (shhh!). :D The wonderful papers are from Maggie Holms collection. I really liked how bright they were, yet with all the white space on the card and topper it made them the perfect compliment to the pastel look I was going after.

Hair: N0, V01, V12, V04

Flowers: R81, R83, G12, G05

Dress: R81, R83, R85

Tights: N1, N3, N6, N8

Fox: E13, E15, E19

Shadows: BV0000, BV34

I was going for a pastel look, which is very hard for me since I love to lay on the bright colors.

If you haven’t heard of Ppinkydolls as a stamp company, I’m not surprised. The shop owner, Chrishanthi, does amazing line work, however that isn’t the bulk of her art. She creates her images into the most wonderful dolls! Take a look at her work – you will be amazed.
