Pop it Up in March

Heya friends! I’m here again with a new creation. It is for the March Challenge up on Some Odd Girl.

I finally got to coloring up one of the new Hipster Cats from January! This is Coffee Cat, who is just adorable.

February Some Odd Girl Release Review

Hey everyone! One new thing that we are doing at Some Odd Girl is our Some Odd Girl Release Review, where at the end of every month we get to look back on the projects made with that month’s new digis. 🙂 It is a great idea & I love it.

Here you have two of my own projects, one being new and the other is from the Valentine’s Hop.

My new creation is using the awesome new SOG character, Dakota. This is one tough cookie! Even with that being said, she still knows how to take it easy and just be.

Copic Markers used:
Skin: E11, E13, E15, E19
Hair: C3, B28, C5, C7
Shirt: R81, R83
Pants: C3, C5, C7

I’m sticking with my flat cards, but have switched over to an A6 size. This is a bit easier for me to print out images for a next-to-full sized card base. I love concentrating on just coloring the images and accenting with a patterned paper and border. 🙂

A little refresher from the V-day’s hop – Swoon Dakota! She is just a fabulous, versatile character and I can’t wait to see more of her.

There were quite a number of new images in February, so make sure to stop by the Blog for our Some Odd Girl Release Review to see examples from the Design Team! Or…you could just hop over to the store and pick yourself up some NEW digis!

 

Neve Warm Winter Wishes

Wow, it is December already! I’ve been on the Make it Crafty blog for a month already – only one more month to go. *cry* I’m still so lucky to be able to play with the wonderful images like Neve in this card I posted on the MIC blog yesterday.

I stayed with my ever favorite layout, with the addition that I first placed Neve so she and the snowman would hit the lowest point. It left plenty of space for the awesome MIC digital sentiment!

Hair: YR20, E53, E55
Dress/Bow: R81, R83, R85, R89
Hat/Scarf: E50, E51, E53

Snowman: C0, C1, C5, C7, YR02, YR06

Background: V000, B000, C0, C1

I did try a full-Copic background here, just in the lighter colors V000 and B000. I’m working up to trying it in the darker shades, but first I need to make sure my markers are cleaned and well juiced up before I try it. 😀 While I’m not totally in love with the background, that isn’t the focus of the card – Neve and the sentiment are, so I’m satisfied with how the card turned out. 😀

 

A Wave Mae of Some Odd Girl Inspiration

Hey everyone! I was on the Some Odd Girl blog yesterday with this beauty, Wave Mae. So I wanted to make sure to share it with you all.

The Fall Inspired Card

20161024_wavemae

The card was heavily influenced by a color palette I found on Pinterest, but you can read more about that on the SOG blog. 🙂 The papers I chose are Lori Whitlock’s Fall Fling. The colors fit the color palette and had a great playful feel to them.

The layout is still sticking with My Favorite Things Stitched Basic Edges. I have never used my Big Shot as much as I have since getting these dies. I lurv them!

Wave Mae Image Details

The image is a wonderful one from Some Odd Girl called Wave Mae. She is a really good all-around image, perfect for any time of the year really. I just wanted to color up her polka dots and the color palette really inspired me so it worked out well in the end.
