Some Odd Girl Design Team Inspiration: A Bunny Hello

Hi, Oddies!  How are you?  It's Regan here with my first official Some Odd Girl blog post!  You'll see me share weekly on Facebook, but today is my day to get Odd on the blog!  

Speaking of Facebook, did you know we host a month long challenge in the Some Odd Girl Community Facebook group?  And that this month the optional twist is CRITTERS?!  With that in mind, I decided to create a card with two of this year's newer critters - Esther Bunny and Harvest Bunny!  I just love how it looks like she is swooning over his big strong carrot pulling bunny muscles!  Both images are colored with Copics and fussy cut.  I added foam squares to Esther to give her a bit of dimension.





This card is 5"x7" which gave me plenty of room to showcase both of these cuties.  I used a few of the dies in my collection to embellish the card front, but I really wanted the bunnies to be the star of this show!  That Esther seems like a bit of a drama queen, right?  Lol 

I used a sketch for my card front layout.  This is from the Feeling Sketchy Challenge (#195).



Here's a peek at the inside too!




Both images are colored with Copics.

Some Odd Girl Design Team Inspiration: READ

Hello!  Today is my weekly design team inspiration day for Some Odd Girl.  I'm sharing a cute card I made for one of my son's classmates for his birthday.  His mom told me he is an avid reader so we bought him a gift card to Barnes and Noble and I colored up Bookbag Tobie for his card.





Tobie is colored using Copics and diecut.  I've been using more sketches again and this layout is PCC295 from Paper Craft Crew.  I missed being able to enter the challenge but it was still a great sketch!

Make It Crafty Design Team Inspiration: Never Too Early for Halloween

Happy Father's Day!  I hope all the dads out there enjoyed their day!  We had a nice cookout to celebrate my dad!  It may only be June, but that would never stop me from creating Halloween projects!  Today I have one to share with you for my Make It Crafty design team inspiration!  





I colored Elphaba by artist Krista Smith with my Copics, fussy cut, and used foam squares to give her some added dimension.  I have been rediscovering working with sketches again recently and this card layout is courtesy of Cheerful Sketch Challenge.  This is their June sketch and you can find it HERE.



I also couldn't resist adding one of Zoe's terrific chipboard sentiments!  I created Best Witches from the Halloween Adapt-a-Word set.  I used my white gel pen to color the chipboard.  The diecuts used today are Pumpkin Circles Nestabilities (Spellbinders) and Spiderweb Border and Pumpkins Border (La-La Land Crafts).

Some Odd Girl Design Team Inspiration: Cute Corgi

Hi!  I'm popping in quick for my Some Odd Girl Thursday share!  I have been having a crazy busy week where all my crafting projects, DT and personal, everything is just due all at the same time, school is coming to a close for my son, and work is in a word- insane!  But I have one more item to tick off the To Do List!  Here is my SOG card!

This month our theme is Animals and I had colored up this cute Corgi previously during a 12 Days of Coloring Challenge.  I thought it was time to get him on a card!  I have been obsessed with Corgis lately and hope some day, maybe, we can add one to our family in real life.  For now, I follow them on social media and live vicariously through the adorable exploits of #corgisofinstagram!  Lol  My digital corgi here is colored with Copics and cut using the new Scalloped Rectangle dies from La-La Land Crafts.  All the other dies (with the exception of the butterflies which are a Martha Stewart punch) are from LLLC as well.



I also used this month's sketch from Patti over on the SOG Facebook group which was loads of fun!




Products Used

La-La Land Crafts Dies - 

Copics Used

Make It Crafty June Coloring Challenge: Animals

Hi there!  Welcome to another Make It Crafty Coloring Challenge!  This month Zoe has challenged us to color ANIMALS, and she assigned each member of the design team a special insider challenge.  You could be asked to focus on feathers, scales, or fur...  I was given fur to showcase.  I color more people than animals so this was a bit out of my comfort zone (Zoe likes to do that!  Lol) . I figured I could keep us both happy by coloring Carlie with Giraffe.  

They are colored with Copics and cut using La-La Land Crafts Double Stitched Squares.  I added a MIC chippie as well as a few other LLLC dies.  Here I've used Open Hearts Doily Border, Lattice Border, World Heart, and Tree Branch.




Hope you liked my crafty inspiration!  Join us over at the challenge for your chance to win one of three $5 gift vouchers for the MIC shop!  To be eligible you must use at least ONE Make It Crafty product on your project and follow the challenge theme.  All coloring mediums are welcome and your entry does not have to be a finished project.  Enter our Animal coloring challenge HERE!
