You'd better know how to swim!

Hey there Sweeties and Oddies!  I'm here today to share with you another fun DT project from Some Odd Girl! 

Allow me to introduce to you "Mermaid Piper."   I just adore her and her little come hither look over the shoulder.  I think she's fun with just a little bit of sass going on inside that head of hers.  That's why I chose to use that particular sentiment.  I put it inside the card, but I wanted you all to see it as well! 

I colored this image up using Copic markers on Sweet Sentiment Coloring paper. I didn't write down my color, I'm sorry, but this was one of those times when I didn't want to think about it, I just wanted to color.  When I was finished, there was a massive heap of markers on my desk and I quickly put them all away before I needed coffee (or wine) to make it happen! lol! I added some really cool netting I got from one of my friends (Busy Box Blends) who makes fiber blends for craft projects.  I thought the netting went perfectly with this nautical theme here.  All of the papers are from Authentique and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. 

Okie dokie, I'm going to go grab that cup of coffee I was talking about because it's time for me to hit the road as I'm on my way to Creativation today! Woohoo!!!! See ya all soon!  Toodles! 

The age of Aquarius... well, the month anyway.

I know that song will be stuck in your head..... every time I even hear the word "Aquarius" that song gets in my head and won't go away!  But today, well today.... Aquarius has never been so darn cute!!!!

Today I'm sharing with you a new project in my Erin Condren Life Planner and it's the totally amazing Aquarius digi from Some Odd Girl! 
As you can tell by the watermark above, I've accepted a position on the SOG DT so look for lots more projects in the future featuring images from he amazing ODD Girl Kristy!  I just adore her artwork and have so much fun creating with it!  

I made this planner page quite easily actually.  I used a cloud stencil and placed it directly on the planner page itself, then I used colors of Distress Oxide inks and little sponge applicators to apply the ink.  After that I just freehanded the layers of blue at the bottom.  I used a stencil that had polka dots and stars and just omitted the stars in the center portion.  I used my glittery Jelly Roll pen to add little accents to the bottom of each raindrop.   

I colored the image on Sweet Sentiment Coloring stock with my copic markers.  The skin is E04, E11, E21, E00, and E000.  The hair is BG 49, BG45, BG15, and B00. The dress and water are :b99, B97, B95, B93, B91, B12, B41, B00, and B0000.

I then fussy cut the image with my trusty Cutter Bee scissors and adhered her to my planner page using the Prima Planner Glue Stick that you see in the photo.  

I believe Aquarius officially begins on January 21st, so that is why I have her on this particular planner page! 

I hope that you love this idea and that you do this yourself in your own planner or calendar, or even on a card or scrapbook page!  There are sooooo many things you could to with this super cute image!  

Ok I'm off to get a cup of coffee! Hugs to you all! Toodles! 

Anyone up for cake?

I know, silly question huh?  We all want birthday cake,  the kind that doesn't find it's way directly to your hips!  I'm here today with another project to hopefully inspire you.... to stamp, not to eat cake.... well, maybe BOTH! I mean, I wouldn't say no to cake!

I began by stamping the awesome new "Celebrate with cake" stamp from TRHD on a scrap of Sweet Sentiment coloring paper. I colored it with my copic markers in fun teals and pinks.  Then I used some Nuvo drops to created that clear yellow glittery icing. .... then it was time to get to work.

I used an A2 size piece of Sweet Sentiment paper and pretty much all of my T, C and W Copic markers to create this little kitchen background.  I used R83, R81, and RV10 to create the little canisters on the counter, and a silver pen to draw in the hardware on everything. Then I then cut a bajillion layers of pinks and grays to mount the background to and used Distress Oxide inks to "distress" the edges. Then, I drank coffee.... no seriously, because I wanted something else but I didn't know what to do, then it totally hit me! I grabbed my entire bin of flowers and found these tiny roses. I grabbed 6 of them and wrapped them in a square of... wait for it.... brown packing paper! lol! Yup, it was the perfect consistency and thickness to wrap the flowers in and tied them with a little bakers twine bow. Then I used foam squares to give the cake a little pop off the page and stamped a sentiment from "Sassy Birthday" onto a scrap of paper.  I adhered that to the card and BOOM! Done! Now I can finish my cup of coffee...... mmmmmm.......

I know that was kinda wordy, but you all know how I am, so you're used to it by now.  I'm off to make another cup of coffee and see if there's any cake in this house.... there isn't, but a girl can dream.  Toodles!

January Color Challenge is LIVE

Who's up for a color challenge?  I'll be posting a new color challenge every month on the first day of that month.  I'm excited because I LOVE color challenges!  This one is no exception, it's awesome!

These beautiful pinks and grays just spoke to me, not to mention those amazing paper flowers in the photo! Wow!  I just love them! 

I had a hard time choosing an image for the project I wanted to make using this color palette.  I wanted to inspire you all to want to play along, but I also really wanted to challenge myself to get out of my comfort zone and do something that was a little intimidating to me.  Then it hit me!!!!!

Copic markers used:
Tail: R83, RV32, R32, RV23, RV21, RV10
Skin: E15, E11, E21, E00, E000
Hair: C8, C6, C4, C2, C0
Barrel: N6, N4, N2, N0, W6, W4, W2
Background: C, N, W, and T series markers and RV10 along with 0 Colorless Blender

I just ADORE this image from Some Odd Girl called "Mermaid Bath."  In all honesty, I couldn't be happier with the way this turned out.  I added a bit of white jelly roll pen to the snowcaps on the mountains and a glitter jelly roll pen to the mermaid's tail.  I mean, she HAS to be glittery right???

The background papers are from the Graphic 45 Bloom series and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and a few miscellaneous one that I had from friends sending them to me (thank you Jasmine!). 

I really hope this inspires you to play along with this color challenge.  To enter all you have to do is make a project that uses the color palette above, then post the photo of your project into the album in the FaceBook group.   You can enter up to three times as long as your projects are in the album prior to the last day of the month.  I'll announce the winner on the first of February when I post the new challenge!  Remember, we are a coloring group, so your project needs to have something colored on it! Wanna know what you're trying to win???  OK!!!! 

The winner this month will get:  A Sweet Sentiment Tee Shirt!!!!! Awe yeah!  So much fun!

I can't wait to see what you all create, I'm off to make a cup of coffee.  Toodles!

Second: I used the new "Scripty Happy Birthday" stamp.  I fussy cut the letters by hand because I wanted them cut close.  They are stamped in Momento Tuxedo Black ink on my Sweet Sentiment coloring paper.

Day 3 of releases from The Rabbit Hole Designs

Ok, so today is day 3 and I'm here to show you three more projects!  Yeah 3!

First of all I want to show you the awesome new stencils that were released..... check these out!

How awesome are these????? I love them.  They are called "circle Illusion" and "Square Illusion" and they are wicked fun to work with.  I just sprayed them with my trusty Pixie Spray and laid them down on Sweet Sentiment Paper and went to town with my Oxide Inks! I added sentiments from the NEW "Anti-Valentines Day" stamp set that was also part of this release as well! I love the snark! 

Ok, the last card I'm going to be showing you today is this one: 

This stamp set is called "Put a Bow on It" and I saw it and immediately wanted to color a whole rainbow of ribbons!!!! It was a lot of fun to color this and I can see myself using it a lot more in the future.  It also comes with he sentiments "Hope" and "Love" in a pretty scripty font, so I used the word love and some clear embossing powder (for the very first time) to make the background.  I added another bow, because... well, YEAH!!!! Ha ha ha! 

So, this is a blog hope people, and blog hops mean prizes.... so here's the deets:
