Trying Something New

I'm not much of a technique gal so this is a big step for me. I watercolored OBP Ellie Left using water, a paintbrush and my inkpads. I was going for a vintage look.

I'm In Stitches

I made this card for the SCS Inspiration Challenge a few weeks ago. My photo looks bad so I'll describe the card. The base is brown cardstock. On top of that is white cardstock that I handstitched with red embroidery floss. On the squares, I stamped Odd Bird Planet Scrolly Border, Shrubbery, Flourish Right and Thank You with brown ink.
On the left, my niece talking on her zucchini phone. I swear we check our 3 zucchini plants daily but somehow this guy was missed. We had zucchini enchiladas for dinner tonight and I think there will be zucchini pancakes in the morning.

Look "Woo's" Coming Soon

Odd Bird Planet will be releasing lots of new images on August 1 in the newsletter. Add your email address here to get the announcement in your inbox. In the meantime, on the left is Kaylea's Space Owl (which my niece nicknamed "Spacey"). She is thrilled to have her drawing made into a stamp.

Check out the other OBP Design Team Member's blogs for more sneak previews.

A Little Christmas in July

One of the challenging things about design team assignments is that often you are working several seasons ahead. I had a hard time thinking about Christmas when I needed to work on these so I watched a Christmas movie to help set the mood.
I used Flair Designs Holly Jolly Collection O Christmas Tree and Cardstock stickers with Odd Bird Planet Lacy Circle Medium.
On this one I used Flair Designs Holly Jolly Collection Holly Jolly Stripe paper with more Cardstock stickers and OBP Joy to the World sentiment.

Flair also has a new line of Christmas paper called Merry Little Christmas. I am in love with the Holly Berries paper.

I'm So Lucky

My friend Angie from Stampings of the Shug recently ran a contest called, What Can You Make Out Of This. She sent each contestant a kit with the same image, papers and Prima flowers. It is amazing how different the cards turned out using the same materials (see cards here). My card is on the right. My friend Thanh and I tied for cutest and most creative cards.

I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils and added the polka dot ribbon (we were allowed to add one embellishment to the kit) and then used my Fiskars Threading Water punch on the striped paper.

Is This A Record?

I used 8 patterned papers on this one card. This is the larger scale version of my cupcake-turned-flower pot card. This time I used OBP Frosting Only Cupcake and Flora Hugabundous with Thank You. I also cut into the paper I have been hoarding that I bought in France. It's the top flowers with the French script.

Mail Call

This is my first attempt at mail art. It will be displayed in the justjohanna's Odd Bird Planet Boutique in Escondido, California along with mail art creations from the rest of the OBP Design Team members.

I dissected an envelope and then traced it onto a giant calendar page. Then, I stamped OBP You Rock, Little Crown, and Single Note randomly all over.

For the postage I used Alistair and Alma inside the Small Bracket Frame. I drew the wiggle lines over them to make them look like cancelled postage. Then, on the address, I stamped Max Rocker Owl.

It was a good experience to do something different than a card but I don't think mail art is my life's calling. :)

A Squeeker

I made my card featuring OBP Desmond Squeeker Left and a bunch of scraps I've had for a while. Desmond is part of the Lime Tart Full Tart kit currently available at Odd Bird Planet.

Hello Again

I've been super busy planning a big 4th of July breakfast and patriotic program for around 100 people. So, since I have Independence Day on the brain, here's a little card I made to honor the American flag.

I used: white party streamers, ruffled ribbon, Die Cuts With a View cardstock, sticky rinestones, punchinella (sequin scrap) and justjohanna's Odd Bird Planet Al with Stars.
