An Odd Card

Hello Friends!

Over at the Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog, they are having a challenge requiring something odd.  I thought what could I make for this?  And I remembered that my son used to watch a show called The Odd Squad and they solved math problems in order to fix all sorts of odd happenings.  I also got out a stamp set that I bought a few years ago and hadn't used-because it was a little different than the rest of my stamps. 

Here is my card:

I made these cool circles with a stencil (probably Ranger but I don't know which artist) and blue velvet opal magic wax which is just awesome.  (this isn't the odd thing, keep going)

Here's my sorta odd stamp.  Now that I have created this card-I am excite to use this stamp again.  Her arm and legs are separate stamps and I think when you have more sets you can interchange them.  This is a Clearly Constructed Art Stamp by Catherine Moore.  One of the main reasons I hadn't used her is the space in her skirt.  Like what do I do with that?  LOL. I colored her with Prismacolor markers.

So I make these gears and upcoming clock out of paper clay and molds (from Mod Podge).  I had pieces of a gear that broke, and it was perfect!  I painted these with Prima Opal Magic pink blue paint. And glued them in the space.  Then I put another wax on the clock but I don't remember which one. This is under the clock.

So I moved her arm and her feet so you could see them in a different place because of the brads.  

What else is odd besides my teacup wearing character friend here?  The number circles are missing the number 4.  And there is a moon face on the left side of the card.  Why?  So odd.  And maybe she is a robot with all of those gears!  Also, odd.

I had a great time creating this card.  Maybe I should think more odd. :)

Here are the challenges I would like to submit this too:

Thank you for stopping by! :)  Until next time my friends...stay odd :)

Happy Birthday Card

Hello Friends!

My dad's birthday is coming up soon and somehow the planets aligned so that I could make him a card before his birthday.  Yay!

I used mostly Tim Holtz products with the exception of some gold ink that outlined the card and sentiment, background paper and the Finnabair Vintage Gold Paste I used with Tim's Star stencil.  

I used vintage photo distress oxide around the edges of the card.  

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Cardz 4 Guyz: Use ink or paint--distress oxide and gold ink around the edges of card and sentiment

Thank you for stopping by!  :)

Love is in the Air!

Hello Everybody!

I was watching a Jennifer McGuire video-and she was paper piecing cards.  And I was inspired!

I used Crate Paper "Hello Love" for all of the paper except the white panel where the hot air balloon and sentiment are stamped.  The hot air balloon is what is paper pieced.  I added some little dots with a puff paint that I bought at Micheal's.  It had 4 colors in a set-all Valentines pink, red, white, and this blue.  

The stamps are from The Alley Way.  Do you still have stamps from them?  This is one of my favorite sets to this day.  

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Thank you for stopping by!  Until next time my friends-may your day be filled with love! :)
