Kawaii Panda Bears

Hi Oddballs - Angie here with another Inspiration Post for our Blog Challenge (Always Anything Goes with an Optional Theme - this month's being Feature a Creature).

I have used Kawaii Panda Bears IMG316 again.

Oh My !!!!! How uber cute are these guys!

I actually didn't colour these guys at all, left them entirely black and white but used my Oxide Distress Inks, water spray and some stamps to create the some funky backgrounds.
Would you believe I spent more time on google looking for some great sayings to add to them!

I hope you like them - I think they make great Positive Affirmation ATC's.
And speaking of ATC's - did you see we have started a Monthly swap and these are just perfect with the same theme as our Blog Challenge!

Here's a coupon code to save 10% OFF the entire Oddball Art Etsy Shop

EK's ATC Swap

Hey everyone!  EK here to share a post that really took me out of my comfort zone. 

Anyone else feeling a little nervous about the new ATC Swap (Artist Trading Card Swap) happening over in the Facebook group?  Me too.

I have tried ATCs in the past, and it just hasn't ever been an something that I was happy doing.  So needless to say, joining in with the swap, has made me really nervous.  But I am also not the kind of girl who doesn't try.  So this past week I sat down with a couple of Oddball Art Digital Stamps and tried again with these strange little things called ATC.

I ended up doing two ATCs.  The first features digi #233, Big Eyed Baxter, who is sort of a creature right...he's a cat, not a human, so I am calling this project fulfilled!

The second ATC features the digi #34, Big Eyed Zombie Sheep.  And I learned this week, for me, the key to ATCs is keeping it simple and that less is more.

For more on these ATCs, check out my page here at ekgorman designs, so see the handful of products I used.

I can not wait till the 25th when I get to send these out to their new homes.  I never really thought I would be excited about this, but guess what...I am.  And I am even more excited to get my new ATCs from one of you.

Don't let your fear or nerves stand of your way to trying something new.  You might just love what you do.

Flip Album Tutorial

Hello Oddball´s

It´s me... Tina
This time I've created a tutorial for a little flip album.
In it I want to collect some of my favorite pictures of Oddball.
Not only many photos; also 3 videos where you can see 
how I colorize and see the finished album.

Have fun reworking and watching.


1.) 2 pieces  12x12cm and 1 piece 12 x 5cm!

Here is my SnapPap in kraft colors. I cut it first, 
then I wet it a little and press it very tight so that it crumples. 
Once dried, you can continue working on it. I inked it with ink sprays and stamped 
inks and stamped some circles on it and wiped it with Distress Micro Glaze. 
So it is protected and gets a nice light shine.

Now connect the 3 parts for the album like that.

Here I have the SnapPap glued to the outside and fixed with clothespins until it is dried.

That's how it looks finished. I have also a leather strap for to close attached.

Cutting edge 4 retaining tabs in these sizes:
7 x 11,5cm - fold at 1,5cm and 5,5cm
6 x 11,5cm - fold at 1,5 and 4,5cm
5 x 11,5cm - fold at 1,5 and 3,5cm
4 x 11,5cm - fold at 1,5 and 2,5cm 

Then cut off all corners diagonally 

Now glue all parts evenly distributed on each other

Now we cut 8 x piece of cardstock or design paper in size:
24cm x 11,5cm. This you have to fold at 11,5 and 23 cm.

Now stick the pockets in the album. To do this, put the bag on the holder and 
glue it on one side only.

I have the bags still embossed and attached a  decoration. 
This makes them easier to pull out and open later.


The finished Album

Thank you for watching my videos ...

See ypu soon...
