Some Odd girl Digital release: Yehaw!!

Hello and happy Tuesday everyone :) Hope you all had a great Monday yesterday. I am here today, with the new releases from Some Odd Girl.
For my creation, I decided to make a gift bag, cause you never know when you will need one.
Meet, Cowboy Kody, I want to inform you all that Kody is indeed a full digi. I decided to crop him off from waist down, because I wanted him to be a bigger focal point on my gift bag. So when you go and get him from the store you will get the full digi.
I also used the new Loopy Sentiments V4 file for the, happy title on my tag, I just traced and cut it out using my Silhouette.
I used my Spectrum Noirs to color my image in and then used my new Tim Holtz distress markers for the background. To get the cloudy swoosh effect, I just drew the marker onto one of my clear stamping blocks then used my water brush to pick up the color and brush on.
Other Material's:
Letter stickers: October Afternoon
Tim Holtz: Tea Dye Distress Ink
Cherry Red & Kraft Brown Twine by Timeless Twine
Papers: Carta Bella: Giddy Up
To see what the other Odd girlies created head on over to the Some Odd Girl Blog.

Tiddly Inks: Black Cat Challenge

Hello, this is my first post for the day! It's time for another fun challenge over at the Tiddly Inks challenge blog!
This challenge is all about black cats, seems suiting since Halloween Is this Friday. Hope no one is superstitious!?
For my card, I used the adorable digital stamp, Catgirl.
I welded a circle around my image then turned it into an offset to leave a little boarder around the rest of my image. I think the big yellow moon looks fab behind her, really makes her pop, don't you think!?
As soon as I seen this image, I stared singing this song( on my card) so I found that what better way then to write it out using letter stickers.
Materials used:
Spectrum Noirs
Alphabet Letter stickers
Enamel Dots: MME
Crinkle Ribbon: dyed using my Tim Holtz Distress ink
American Crafts: Glitter Tape
Button: October Afternoon
Solid Black bakers Twine by Timeless Twine

Trick or Treat with The ODD GIRLS!

We’d like to welcome you to Some Odd Girl‘s 2nd annual Trick or Treat Halloween Hop!

Thank you so much for joining us!  All of the Odd Girls have concocted a creepy little creation to inspire you today, and you’re invited to visit each blog to see what’s been brewing!   You might have arrived from Judy's blog – if so, you’re on the right track!  If not, you’ll want to CLICK HERE to get things started, because you won’t want to miss a thing!
We’ll be sharing some of these pretties are the Some Odd Girl blog over the next few days, but TODAY, we kick things off!  So you might be wondering what this Trick or Treat stuff is all about, yeah?  Well, in addition to amazing papercrafty goodness you’ll see at each stop, you’ll get tricks along the way, too!  Simple tips and tricks to little secrets we papercrafters have figured out that we want to share with you!  That covers the Tricks.
And then there are TREATS! 

Now it's time to share my spooky cute creation with you all!
I used, Mummy Tobie, Pumpkin KodyIndian Tia, digital Stamps.
Isn't it just fab, how you can merge digi's to create a custom scene. That's my trick/tip for you all. Try and mix and match some digital stamps to create your own little scene. As you can see above I used three different digi's and brought them together to make this sweet little trick or treat family. The possibilities are endless when creating with digital stamps. I used my Silhouette studio designer software to merge these images together, but any editing software will work just fine.

I colored my image in using my Spectrum Noirs & Copic markers.
Papers: October afternoon: Witch Hazel
other elements: enamel dots, wood veneers, glitter tape, letter stickers, wink of stella.

 As you hop, you’ll come across some Treats, located at random Odd Girls‘ blogs.  We have some clear stamps, some Odds & Ends, some digi stamps and lots and lots of inspiration for you!  AND, as if that wasn’t exciting already, we have a discount code for you! 
Be sure to leave a comment at each stop, and if YOU have any tricks you’d like to share, we’d love to hear them!  There might just be a prize in it for one commenter who leaves us a trick!  Okay.  So have you got all that?  Are you ready?  Well allllll righty!  LET’S HOP!   Here’s your hop order:
Brianna<< You are HERE
Melissa <<<NEXT
