Apple Cider Oddball

Apple Cider Oddball

It’s been a while since I colored up an Oddball…


Hi All! You know I love my Oddballs from Stamping Bella. Apple Cider Oddball is no exception. She’s all bundled up for Fall toting her apples and cider. I bet that jug has hard cider in it! When I was a kid, my parents would buy locally made cider and keep it outside. Being unpasteurized, eventually it would get” fizzy”. Oh how I loved that “fizzy” cider. Maybe that is where my love of sparkling wine comes from. LOL! Now, on with the show and tell…


I used a patterned paper with a lighter shade of sage to balance out the darker sage scarf.


If I had to pick a favorite part of this card it would be the fall leaves in her hair. I used a color combo for copper and they just turned out perfectly.


I added a die cut CHEERS as a sentiment because in my mind there is booze in that jug! LOL.

Oddball Flamingo!

Oddball Flamingo!

Two of my favorites, Oddballs and Flamingoes.


I do love the Oddballs. I don’t know why, but I just DO! I’ve always loved flamingoes also. But even more now that it is the mascot of the community we live in. For this flamingo I paper pieced, and hot foiled! So, on with the show and tell…


I paper pieced the body of the flamingo, and colored his feet, eyelid and beak with my Copic markers.


For the background I used my new Glimmer club kit for July! I used the teal foil, which (SORRY) photographs nothing what it looks like!


Check out my hot foil plate, I accidentally placed my foil wrong side down. It in NO way affects the plate if you happen to be not paying attention like I did!
