Are you as excited as I am?? It's finally here...Some Odd Girl spring release day!!! Wahooo!! Today there are a total of 33 digi images being released and they are so SO CUTE! I have 4 cards to show you using some of these new images, so I'm going to get started and fill you in on the details!! :)

This TREE is just TOO FABULOUS! Ohhhh the possibilities! You already saw a sample on Sunday's post here. My attempt at colouring this tree in non-traditional colours didn't quite work out the way I wanted...still practising lots with those Copics! I added the glitter by using my glue pen, dabbing it where I wanted it, and gently sprinkling the Art Glitter on. Isn't the new Green at Heart line by Basic Grey is just divine...
Stamps: Tree (Some Odd Girl)
Ink: Copics markers; Chai (Papertrey Ink); Vintage Photo distress ink (Tim Holtz for Ranger)
Paper: white (Papertrey Ink); Green at Heart 6x6 designer paper (Basic Grey)
Other: gems (Zva); glitter (Art Glitter); button, twine (misc.); branch (SU!)
RAIN CLOUD is one of my fave images from the spring release line. So versatile! I paired it with a sentiment from Rain or Shine by My Favorite Things that I thought fit well. I used my BG0000 Copic marker to trace around the cloud to make it appear 'whiter'. I kept this card simple, with a bright pop of colour meant to bring cheer! I adhered the ribbon using Scor Tape, and used a glue dot to attach the bow and ribbon separately.

Stamps: Rain Cloud (Some Odd Girl); Rain or Shine (MFT)
Ink: Spring Rain, Orange Zest (Papertrey Ink); Copic markers
Paper: white, Orange Zest (Papertrey Ink); Blue (Bazzil); blue glitter paper (Doodlebug Designs)
Other: Orange Zest button, Spring Rain ribbon(Papertrey Ink); twine (misc.); border punch (Fiskars); foam dimensionals

LOLLI is too cute and yummy looking- very sweet and sugary, perfect for pairing with Basic Grey's Two Scoops designer paper. The Copic colouring I did by blending, blending, blending, and then blending some more :) Not sure if it shows up in the picture, but I dabbed Diamond Stickles on top of each brad for a little extra 'bling'. I love how this card turned out so sugary and sweet- exactly what I was going for!

Stamps: Lolli (Some Odd Girl); Another Sweet Day (Unity Stamp Company)
Ink: Copic markers; Sweet Blush, Chamomile (Papertrey Ink)
Paper: white (Papertrey Ink); Two Scoops 6x6 designer paper (Basic Grey)
Other: brads (Basic Grey); 1/2" punch (SU!); flourish diecut (Sizzix); Stickles

These LOVE BIRDS were so fun to colour- lots of variations that you could use. I think these two could be true loves, or maybe even a mommy and baby bird...what do you think?? I coloured them with Copic markers and paired with papers from DCWV. The little flower at the bottom was done using my 1/2" circle punch and Scor Tape.

Stamps: Love Birds digi (Some Odd Girl)
Ink: Copic markers; Spring Rain (Papertrey Ink)
Paper: white (Papertrey Ink); Citrus (DCWV)
Other: gems (Michael's); Summer Sunrise ribbon (Papertrey Ink); 1/2" circle punch (SU!); bauble (K & Co.); Scor Tape
