A spooooooooky release!

Good afternoon guys, this time I want put a spotlight on the new 14 digi images release by Some Odd Girl... 14, understand?!?! 14 amazing, spooky, sweet, warm images... Oh God, I can't believe it!

Today is... *drum roll*... DAY ONE of Digi Release Reveal Week!
"We are also doing things slightly differently and having some extra fun with this release. Each day, Monday through Friday, we will be revealing 2-3 new digis HERE, on the Some Odd Girl challenge blog. But not only do you get to BUY the digis on the day of their reveal, you'll also get a special discount! On the day they are revealed they'll be available in the shop at 25% off FOR THAT DAY ONLY! That means today's reveals will ONLY be available on sale until the next reveals are posted, and then those will be available and on sale tomorrow! The sale will not be held over so stop back daily to see what's new and snatch them up at the sale price."... in plain words, >> DISCOUNTS A GO-GO!! <<

You can buy today's digis here, on Some Odd Girl shop... are you asking yourself why I wrote "A spoooooooooooky release", right?!?! Go on the shop, and you'll see!! But don't be scared, this little cuties are sooo lovely, they're a concentrate of sweet fears... has I told several times, I hope to find some these extremely lovely guys at my door on Halloween night!! They'll be better than candies, absolutely!!
In my first card, with Tia, I tried to create a scene at the twilight, with the beautiful ghosty girl sitting on a pumpkin... probably waiting for his lost love; in the second I tried to create a really original decomposed mummy's skin, but he is too much cute and I couldn't run away... bbrrrr spooooooky!!
I waited so long for use these stamps... and now I can!! I love, LOVE, Halloween theme and these stamps are some of most beautiful, cute and sweet I've ever seen (they're among my favourite stamps)!!!
Enjoy to see my creations, hope you like them!

Today are in scene Halloween Tia (MY lovely ghost version):

Have an happy wedding day


Tuesday was open a new challenge on Deep Ocean Challenge blog, this time the LACE has the leading role, protagonist of a lot of creations and lovely works, and best friend of vintage lovers.

Loved by all, our nannies or grandmothers have a lot of it on their skirt or dressing gown, always in our mind when we think about Romantic period, or the ribbons in the hair of young girls at the end of 18OO, or the hem lines of white blouses of women at the beginning of 20th century, or old vintage photoes of our grandparents around years 20'-30'...
in every side you watch it, the lace is always fantastic, so lovely and chic, and we want give it a big thanks for help our creations to be wonderful, beautiful and sweet (or sexy)!

This time we want see how you interpretate this great theme, with ribbon or fabric it isn't important, must only be lace on your creation!
My interpretation for this theme coincides with a commission that asked me a card for a wedding: the bride, a dear friend of the girl who asked me this, is an "England lover" so I decided to tribute her with the same colours of english flag; the tag on the left is for write the newly weds, obviusly.

stamps: my new Kenny K Download digi stamp "Happy Couple" - I think it's my favourite stamp from Kenny K at the moment, but I saw other wonderful stamps too... they're wainting for me! Ahaha
pearls and gems, lace white ribbon, blu ribbon from Hero Arts's set, pins (blu, white and hearty red), flowers, Magnolia Doohickeys for tag, punch "Doily Lace Edger Punch" by Martha Stewart used around the round (in this way, thanks to Less is More for the tutorial), copics for colouring
papers and cardstock: white cardstock for tha base, red cardstock for underline the layers, red squares paper "So Jolly" by Magnolia, the hearty white paper "Summer Breeze" by Maja Design (the same paper of the round), and the flowery paper "Flower Meadow" by "Maja Design"

with this card I enter the following challenges:
Wags'n Whiskers - Lace
Frosted Designs - Punches
Cardmadfairy's Digi Days - Lots of layers

Another sneak, another Gwen

It's me again, today, show you another Gwen's outift by SomeOddGirl... isn't this so versatile?!? Yestarday was in "rainbow dress" mode (as I like call her), today instead she's a sweet girl who gives you a package... We said yesterday, on SomeOddGirl page, that we were looking for some versatility here, so can't you imagine this Gwen for just about ANY occasion?! Birthday, anniversary, Valentine's day, Christmas... or just a day like the other in the year, but so special for you... That might even be a box of chocolates she's holding... or a gift... or a bomb!!! Ahahah no, no, she's too much sweet for this, I'm joking!! ;D
Remember, if you PRE-order any of this week's release by TOMORROW, you save a dollar (on already reduced prices!), so if you love 'em, grab 'em!
Sooo, what are you waiting for?! Go, go!!
Visit this page to see what DT created with this lovely stamp... you'll wonder, my word.

Sono ancora io, oggi, a mostrarvi un'altra mise dell'adorabile Gwen, marchiata
SomeOddGirl... non è versatilissima?!? Ieri era in modalità "vestito arcobaleno" (come mi piace chiamarla), oggi invece è una dolce ragazza che vi dona un pacchetto... Abbiamo detto ieri sulla pagina SomeOddGirl che stiamo cercando di mettere più versatilità nei nostri timbri, bene, non riuscite immaginate questa Gwen per ogni occasione?! Compleanno, anniversario, giorno di San Valentino, Natale... o solo un giorno come tanti altri nell'anno, ma speciale per te... Potrebbe ad esempio essere una scatola di cioccolatini ciò che sta tenendo in mano... o un regalo... o una bomba!! Ahahah no, no, è troppo dolce per questo, sto scherzando!! ;D
Ricordate, se PRE-ordinate qualcuno delle uscite di questa settimana per DOMANI, risparmierete un dollare (almeno ridurrete il prezzo!), quindi se li amate, prendeteli!
Insomma... che state aspettando?! Andate, andate!!
Visitate questa pagina per vedere ciò che è stato capace di realizzare il DT con questi adorabili timbri... vi meraviglierete, parola mia.

Gifty Gwen

and my interpretation of her:

Happy Birthday little champion!!

Good morning,
another day, another work; this time I made a combo between a card and a bookmark. A girl asked me these two coordinated creations for her son's birthday, this little boy plays basketball and he totally loves it (I'm an ex-player too, so I can understand his passion), so why don't create something about this sport?!? The little champion is going to celebrate his 8th year in this world, I think this is an important age, so we must celebrate it with joy and happiness; I decided to use the famous colours of basket: orange, black and brown, and seen that we are in Fall period, I was so ispiring from this colours! A lot of buttons and star complete the scene... for a brilliant and shining career in this sport!

un altro giorno, un altro lavoro; questa volta ho fatto una combo tra una card e un segnalibro. Una ragazza mi ha chiesto queste due creazioni coordinat per il compleanno di suo figlio, il piccolo gioca a basket e ne è totalmente innamorato (sono anche io una ex-giocatrice, quindi posso comprendere la sua passione), così perchè non creare qualcosa attorno a questo sport?!? Il piccolo campione dovrà festeggiare il suo ottavo anno in questo mondo, penso che questa sia un'età importante, quindi dobbiamo festeggiarla in grande, con gioia e felicità; ho decido di usare i famosi colori del basket: arancione, nero e marrone, e visto che siamo nel periodo autunnale, sono stata molto ispirata da questi colori!
Tanti bottoni e stelle completano il tutto... per una carriera brillante e splendente in questo sport!

For my english friend : the sentiment is in italian language,
traducing it's written "HAPPY BIRTHDAY LITTLE CHAMPION!"

stamps: The Greeting Farm "Dylan" from set "Roll Call"
details: for the card - Basic Grey buttons, Making Memories felt star, basket ball printed and cutted,
Cosmo Cricket chipboard arrow from the set "Joy Ride", stars punched, "8" number from American Craft "Delight" Foam Letter Sticker, sentiment by me, copics for colouring;
for the bookmark -
Basic Grey buttons, Making Memories felt star, basket ball printed and cutted, stars punched, "basket" word from American Craft "Delight" Foam Letter Sticker, copics for colouring
papers and cardstock: for the card - white cardstock behind, Making Memories black paper "Skeleton Toil and Trouble" for the base, My Mind's Eye "Spooked Orange Swirls", black and rust cardstock for stand out other colours;
for the bookmark - rust and black cardstock for the base, My Mind's Eye "Spooked Orange Swirls"
