A Gift

Hello Friends,

Holy crap!  Where have I been?  Let's not get into it.

A co-worker of mine bought a gift for his wife and said he was going to buy a card.  I cringed.  *Buy* a card?  Um, no.  

So, I made him one using Saturated Canary's Molly.  This is the first card I've made in over six months.  It felt good.  It's heavily inspired by the DT Member Franz.

I distressed and stamped with Stampin' Up!'s Marina Mist.
The snowflakes are a Sizzix die distressed with Marina Mist, then hand painted with Diamond Stickles.
The flowers and doily are all from Wild Orchid.
I have no clue where the patter papers are from.  They were in the stash.  I'm sure you can relate.
Notice the sewn snowflakes on the left between the Sizzix dies?  Yup!  My sewing machine does a snowflake stitch.  Who knew?!

Is that it?  Did I get everything?

I colored Miss Molly using Copics:
Hair: E53, E25, E57, E29
Skin/Lips: E000, E00, E11, E04, BV01/R27, R20, R22:
Clothes: BG000, B00, BG01, BG02, BG05, V000, V01, V04, V06
Sky, B0000, B000, B00
Snow: C1, C2, C3, C4
...and of course a little Polar White Flower Soft to fluff up her coat.  [I have since fixed the little pieces that ventured outside the lines.]

That's it!  Thanks for stopping by!

A couple new SOGgies for your Sunday

Hello Friends.

It's been a really long time since I played in blog land.  Crafting has been going on, but not much.  I'll be honest, I made a *ton* of homemade gifts for the holidays and got completely burnt out.  I took a short break and now I'm excited to be back among the crafty supplies again.

I have a couple of new Some Odd Girl cards today.  Something romantic and something simple.

Let's start with something simple:

I used Under the Sea Mae to make a CAS card using my favorite colors:

I've colored this stamp a lot.  I've never posted anything because I haven't been happy with how they've come out.  I was excited when I finished this one and like it.  =o )

I stamped the sentiment using Tim Holt'z Snowcap paint dabber, then distressed using Dusty Concord and Salty Ocean.  After distressing, I used a white paper towel to wipe the ink off of the sentiment so it remained white. 

I colored her up using Copics:
Hair: E00, E21, E31, E33, and E57
Skin:  E000, E00, E11, E04
Tail/Top/Shell: V000, V01, V12, V25, V04, V06, V09, BG000, B02, B23, BG05, BG07

Next we'll get romantic using Love Letter Mae:

The card base is SU!'s Confetti paper.  The pattern papers are from DCVW Authentique paper pack.

I stamped the pattern paper using PTI's Love and Marriage stamp set with Tattered Rose distress ink.  The You & Me is stamped in SU!'s Raspberry Ripple. 

I colored Mae using Copics.  I'll try and remember which ones:   =o )

Hair:  E13, E15, E17, E19, E77
Skin: E000, E01, E11, E04. BV01
Dress/Feather: BG18, BG15, BG13, and [I think] BG78.  BV04, BV01, BV000
Paper: C3, C2, C1, and 0

That's it!  Thanks for looking!

A Musical Saturated Canary Challenge

Hello Friends.

Saturated Canary Challenge #34 challenged us to create a card inspired by a song.  Being the music lover that I am, I just had to play along.  Problem is my musical tastes are incredibly eclectic.  Will my card be inspired by Elton John?  Slayer? Chopin? Phantom of the Opera? Pearl Jam?  How on Earth do you decide?  Well, you open iTunes, hit shuffle, and become inspired by the first song you hear...that's how!

So, of the 7,328 songs in my iTunes library, the first to play was "Not While I'm Around" from the musical (and later Tim Burton film) Sweeney Todd.  Haven't seen it?  You really do need a stomach for the worst pies in London to enjoy it, but it's one of my favs. 

Here's a not-so-high-quality clip from the Tim Burton film:

This song was perfect.  I used to sing this to my daughter.  Here is the card that came out of it using Saturated Canary's New Baby:

Colored using Copics:
Hair:  E21, E31, E33, E57, E59
Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E11, E04, R22, R20, E21, E35, E29, R81, E83, R85
Dress: V000, V01, V12, V04, V06, V09, V25, B00, B02, B16
Blanket: YG41, YG06, YG07, and 0

Everything else on the card came from the scrap pile.  You gotta get rid of 'em somehow.  =o D

That's it!  Thanks for looking!
