These New Stamps Will Make It Easy For YOU To Make Stunning Art


"Believe you can & you're halfway there!"



Oddball Art Design Team member Granne used my brand new image Sweet Spooky Sophia IMG#282 and with just a handful of crafting and art supplies that can be found easily and at great prices online,   she was able to create the stunning card pictured above AND  the equally stunning art journal page seen below using another of todays newly released stamps titled Long Day IMG#279, Granne lists her supplies in detail on todays blog post.  


While visiting Granne's blog she has a number of posts like Playing With Digis' To Create  A Whole Background or How To Create A 3D Card Using Bottlecaps where she goes into step by step detail as to how she uses Oddball Art Stamps to easily create such stunning works of art!


Another brand new image released today on Etsy is Love Sick Heidi IMG#280 Oddball Art Design Team members Lena (above) and Andrea (below) both created stunning examples of how this new image can be used to easily create a unique Valentine for the horror/zombie fan in your life!   

Both ladies have done a great job of giving you a brief description of the steps and supplies used to create these beautiful cards,  just click their names in purple (above paragraph) to visit each of their blogs.

Below you can see some other beautiful ways that Oddball Art Design Team members found to use the same new stamps....


Above and below samples were created by Julie and by visiting todays post on her blog you can find out exactly how she was able to create both of these stunning designs and what supplies are needed.


I know that I have mentioned it in other posts but some of my other favorite places to find most of the supplies used today is Michaels & Dick Blick!


The fabulously creative card above was created by Oddball Art Design Team member Jenn and I just love what she's done here such as the list of all the days of the week in other words implying that "Sometimes you feel like a blunt" EVERYDAY lol  (here, here)  and the creative way she used a piece of brown paper rolled up to look like a blunt!  Find out all the details and more in todays post over on her blog!


Because that special day will be here before you know it,  that's right, Valentines Day!!!  Here is another cutie to help you create just the right card for that special someone.

Oddball Art Design Team member Tracey used another of todays newly released images Bucky Be Mine IMG#281 to create this sweet little valentine (above), I just LOVE it!  Tracey goes into more detail about the supplies used on her post for today Be Mine Oddball.  



I am just giddy over these bookmarks (above) created by Oddball Art Design Team member Elaine.  She used todays new release Pugsy Bugsy IMG#283 and some flowers that she cut out of my Doodle Collage Sheet IMG#107 which has lots of fun little images that can be cut out and used to embellish all kinds of your creative projects!

Finally, last but not least, here are some more stunning examples of how the first image I shared with you back at the beginning of this post Sweet Spooky Sophia IMG#282 was used by my other design team members and myself....


 Bettina has put together this stunning example (above) of how you can use bold shapes and lots of layers combined with a fun Oddball image to create a fabulous, eye popping card that is sure to impress!


The above and below samples were both created by Oddball Art Design Team member Lozzy aka Nins Cards.   These 2 cards are a great example of how you can achieve 2 completely different looks using the same image and just changing the background.

In today's blog post Lozzy goes into more detail about how she used a mixed media technique to achieve the first look (above) and exactly which supplies she used to get there!   Below is an example of a CAS design.  (CAS = Clean and Simple)


If you follow me on Facebook then you surely have already seen the below image.   Just in case though I figured I would share again here.   This is a 9" x 12" deep edge canvas that I am still in the process of completing.   For this canvas I brought out my acrylic paints which were just screaming to be used again!   After about a year or so break from my acrylics, I blew the dust off and got started.   I had no idea just how much I missed them until I got started and OMG I have been in heaven working on this acrylic painting, making myself wonder why on earth I stayed away for so long! lol

I am filming the entire process so very soon I will have a new speed painting video up on my youtube channel for you.   Til then I leave you with my WIP pictures....


Be sure to follow me on Facebook if you would like to receive WIP updates of the above painting and more!
