So very special On Safari baby card

Hello! As promised (a couple weeks back!) I have the finished card using On Safari from Some Odd Girl. This card was for a family friend’s grandchild’s baptismal. The kind of thing that you want an extra special card for, so I dusted off the Silhouette Cameo & got to work.

Some Odd Girl baby card

On Safari is a great stamp set for baby cards. In fact I was gifted a card from the Odd Girl herself with this very same elephant. 🙂 Of course, cute animal stamps can be used for many other occasions as well.

The true magic of this card is when it is fully opened. Up pops four panels to greet the receiver! The Silhouette Studio file had “baby” in the panels, but I wanted to personalize it even more with the LO’s name. 

With a keepsake like this, I think the LO is off to a great start!

Some Odd Girl Movie Monday recap on a Wednesday

Hey hey everyone! I wanted to do a little recap on my own blog of a fab Some Odd Girl Movie Monday that was up on the inspiration blog this week. I’m so happy over how this project turned out using the Build a Snowman Clear Stamp Set.

3D Tree Ornament

So here is the end result, a magical 3D ornament with a little 3D paper piecing of one clear stamp! Make sure you hop over to the Some Odd Girl Movie Monday post or our YouTube channel to take a look on how I put this project together.

Here’s another view!

Black and White Demure

Good afternoon on this fine crisp October Thursday. 🙂 Some Odd Girl is continuing our ODDtober challenges today with a sweet one – Black and White.

Since it is October, the season of ghouls and macabre, I thought to create an old Black and White portrait for this challenge. Think back to all those horror movies with the black and white portraits on the wall watching you. 😉 To accomplish this I picked the wonderful Demure. Her look was exactly what I was looking for.

Black and White Demure

The design is pretty simple. I didn’t want the black paper to be so flat, so I create two panels by tearing a middle panel diagonally across the paper. Some Lawn Fawn slit border action and I was satisfied.

As much as I love black and white, this needed a pop of color, which it got with the use of flat-backed wine red pearls. It almost looks like drop of blood, no? 🙂

ODDtober has been a blast so far and only 10 more days left! I’m looking forward to our fabulous Halloween Blog Hop, I hope you are too!

Hippo Digital Stamp Inspiration

So this didn’t get published when it was supposed to but here ya go anyway. 😆 Good day my friends! Another week of craftiness gone and another post up on the Some Odd Girl Blog. This time I’m sharing an inspirational card with Hippo Digital Stamp.

Hippo Digital Stamp Card

I may have mentioned this before, but I usually plan out my cards in the Silhouette Studio app. This helps me visualize what I need and if I want something cut out, it is already there. 🙂

Not too many colors here, I was actually going for a more soft look. When working with greys, it is so important to use a light touch. Too often can the image become too grey, which makes it look like a mistake. I’ve done this so often that I wanted to challenge myself with going with a light touch.
