Core'dinations and Petaloo Fall Card

Happy Wednesday!

Today Core'dinations is teaming up with Petaloo and Xyron for some fun!

For my project I pulled out my Core Basics (Kraft and 110 lb. smooth) and made this great fall Thanksgiving Card.  I really got to play with my supplies on this one.  I pulled out my distress inks, mists, awesome stamps from Simon Says Stamp, spectrum noir marker and really went crazy!  I had so much fun creating this beautiful card.

I made a video to share on how this card came about.

Oct. 21 SOG Digi Release

Happy Tuesday

Today is Tuesday and that means a new digi release from Some Odd Girl.  For today's project I used the Loopy Sentiments v3 and T Rex.  I just LOVE this little guy. My boys just fell in love with him and I am a total sucker for Kristy's digi cut files!

For my card I used embossing paste and a Dreamweaver stencil to create the background.  I colored my little cutie using my Spectrum Noir markers

I have a  video for you on how I created the colored embossing pasted background and coloring of my T Rex.
Thanks for stopping by!  I will be back tomorrow with a new Core'dinations and Petaloo fall card.  See you then.  Have a wonderful and crafty day!

Ocotber 14 SOG Digi Release Loopy Sentiments

Happy Tuesday,
Today Some Odd Girl is having a new digi release.  I am showing off today one of the new sentiments from the Loopy Sentiments digi cut file pack.  These sentiments are just soooo cool!  I LOVE them!

I chose the Sweet sentiment as a play on words for the gingerbread theme and because my boys look so sweet here together decorating the gingerbread house.  I also used Gingerbread Kaylee stamp set!

October 13 SOG Inspiration Layout

Happy Monday,
Today I have a a new post up over at Some Odd Girl for the weekly inspiration.  For this post I made a new layout using the Sunshine Sorbet paper collection and of course, Some Odd Girl clear stamps!  What could be a better combo.  Right?  Awesome Paper and Awesome Stamps!

This is a photo of my little one playing out in the snow.  He looked so darn cute.  I used the paper  to layer underneath the photo and to create some hexagons. I thought that went well with the wood veneer hexagons  and then I added some of the matching sequins.  All of the these items (paper, wood veneer and sequins) are available in the Some Odd Girl Store!
I have a video for you on how this layout came about!
