Oddball Art Stamps November FB Challenge REMINDER

Good morning all! Today I'm sharing my Oddball Art Stamps Design Team challenge reminder card. We have two challenges per month at Oddball, the first one is the Facebook Challenge, which is always Anything Goes in theme. The challenge takes place on Facebook (obviously) and runs from the 1st through the last day of the month. Just upload your Oddball Art Stamps cards to the album and viola! There is also a themed blog challenge that you can check out and play along in!

Oh...and did you know...if you need this, or any other image (you do), you can receive 10% off your order using coupon code DTJENNIFER10. Perk package!

My second project for our Anything Goes Facebook Challenge this month features this BEAUTIFUL image...Sally's Stars #292. She was colored up with a whole big pile of Copics, and I kept this card pretty soft with the colors and simple with the layout, so her stars truly shine!


The yellow layer is embossed with stars (although you can't really see it in the picture). I used Gold spray from FSJ, and some enamel dots and sequins from Doodlebug. The die on the main layer is from Gina Marie.

That's it for me today. I hope you're all having a fabulous day! Don't forget to check out the Oddball Art Stamps Facebook Group for more inspiration. I hope to see you playing along with your Oddball beauties!

Oddball Art Stamps October Release

Hello my dears! I have a HUGE post to share with you today. Last week, Oddball Art Stamps had their October release, and it is AMAZING. Nine....9....yes, NINE new images are available in the Etsy Shop right now! 

I've created projects with 3 of the images, and decided since this release is so big and fun, I'll share them all here in one post. No lines, no waiting! All of my coloring in these projects was done with Copics. 



This card uses Sleeping Fox, Image No. 347. I adore him! So so sweet. He might be my favorite from this release....oh boy....as IF I could pick just one favorite! Nice try ;) Paper and leaf sticker are from Doodlebug, dies are from Spellbinders, embellies are from Basic Grey, Fun Stampers Journey, and Lawn Fawn.


Trick or treat!! She's called Spooks, Image No. 345, and she's a fabulous Halloween fairy, but she could be used for other things too without any trouble! So versatile. Die from Gina Marie. Paper from Doodlebug. Sequins and google eyes from Dollar Tree, if you can believe it!


Here I'm featuring Image No. 343 - Stars and Bubbles. I had a lot of fun....and stress making this card! LOL, I am still learning to get really messy in my crafting...the engineer in me does not like being out of control in regards to some of these funky fun watercolor techniques, using sprays and powders where the placement is often random...it's HARD! But it's also very fun, and it can make SUCH incredible products. I've seen so many with the Brushos paint powders, sprays like the ones Fun Stampers Journey sells (by far the best colors, best designed bottles, best sparkle, and best control), watercolors with various media, etc. So I've been experimenting a bit too ;). For this project I printed the image to encompass the entire space on the card, and used the sentiment from Image No. 207 to round off the front. Then I colored the Stars and Bubbles using Copics. After that was dry I used watercolor crayons to provide a base of background watercoloring, leaving some white space, which I filled with the Pineapple and Blue Lagoon sprays from FSJ while the paper was still wet in most places so it continued to bleed a LITTLE. I finished it off with various colors of the Nuvo Drops from Tonic (glittery red, black, turquoise, white and clear) randomly applied. I distressed the edges of the main image panel and the base of red cardstock before I assembled. SUPER MESSY but a lot of fun and I was so happy with how this card turned out.

Whew! That's all the showcases that I have to share with you today. My DT Sisters made some absolutely amazing projects, so be sure to pay them a visit too, and the fabulous Lizzy Love is sharing everything over the next few days on her blog as well. If you haven't yet, come over and join our Facebook Group, where we have a monthly Anything Goes Challenge, and check out all the new releases in the Oddball Shop!

My first project for our October Anything Goes Facebook Challenge is all about fall. I've used Mr. Sweets the Fox #192 and some fun new Doodlebug paper I got last weekend while browsing the local scrapbook shop. He was colored up with a whole big pile of Copic markers, of course. 


I have used cardstock from Stampin' Up! today. Die is from Gina Marie, leaf stickers are Doodlebug, glitter ribbon from stash. 

That's it for me today. I hope you're all having a fabulous day! Don't forget to check out the Oddball Art Stamps Facebook Group for more inspiration. I hope to see you playing along with your Oddball beauties!

Penny's Challenge #301: Anything Goes!

Good morning stampers! I hope everyone's week is going well! I swear I don't know what DAY it even is, I've been doing some traveling for work, my mom is visiting/helping with the kiddos while I do that, plus some major fall cleaning projects around the house. Oh, and yesterday was my older son's birthday! Nothing like a "busy week", right??

The new challenge at Penny's starts today though! Our sponsors this week are Fred She Said and Little Blue Button Stamps. Prizes are up for grabs! You have until Tuesday night to link up with us on the Penny's Challenge blog.

Today's card features the happy little Emma Mermaid:


Isn't she fun? There are some accessories and a background included with the set, but I just kept picturing her against a fun, bright background, so I switched gears on this project and went with my gut.

Colored with Copics, dies from Gina Marie, embellies and paper from Basic Grey, Fun Stamper's Journey.

That's it for this post! Don't forget to swing over to the Penny's Challenge blog to link up your projects for your chance to win! My DT sisters have created some beautiful inspiration, so leave them some love too!
