Color Me Happy

 909829C9-D842-4538-AA0B-550689AAF615
Hello There Oddballs, Monica here today to share some inspiration using the adorable images from Oddball Stamps and today I am using the TP Mummy from this week’s CCC issue. This cutie is adorable covered in TP but I decided to use another image from a previous issue to create a fun card and add color.

063A6488-949C-4148-A922-A09495F2FB86
Again this is a CAS card but I think it’s adorable.I used the colored version of this image and continued with the color scheme from the spray can for my card. As you can see it’s very simple, to add interest I popped the can on foam tape and called it a day 😊

Nurse love

Jenny has a cure
     This post is for all the nurses out there doing their best job.  At this critical time I think about all the nurses I have known from my clinical nurse to oncology nurses.  This is my salute to you😘!!
     This card was made using the fabulous Jenny, created by the talented Lizzy at Oddballartstamps. This set comes with Jenny and 3 sentiments.  I used black widow light skin for her skin, Irijiten pencils for her clothes and prima premium colored pencils for her hair.

For someone very special!


Hi there!!

Today I bring you an inspiration card for the DT of OddballArt Stamps made with a mixture of elements from different freebies that you will have been able to get through the newsletter if you have subscribed in recent months.


In fact, it is made with the freebie bear CCC 62 Jolly Bear, the balloons of the digi CCC 90 Bummed Out Bear and the feeling of the image #126Big Eye Girl Aya Tags the Wall.


The background was made with a stencil in the shape of clouds and I-Zink ink, Océan color.


Once the digis were colored, I cut them with scissors and pasted them on the background
It is super simple and quick to do.


It works perfectly as a greeting card, to send encouragement or for the simple fact of giving a detail to its recipient.


The only way to get the freebies you have missed is to become Premium subscribers. Paying for this subscription you will have unlimited access to all freebies and an exclusive digital stamp every month. In addition, a very interesting promotion is now available that you are sure to love. In the Oddball store you have all the information


I hope you like this card, inspire you and encourage you to share your creations with the hashtag #creepycutechronicles. Remember that you have at your disposal the discount code DTIRENE10 for your purchases!

See you!

TP Shop- Mummy Fashion


 6B64C6D9-E2B3-4AD0-8E2F-E6464070E5A9

**Warning!** This post comes with a Picture overload 😊

Hello There Oddballs! Monica here again. It’s Creepy Cute Friday once again! Hard to believe how fast time flies, but here we are, another week come and gone. So with all the TP craze Lizzy has another fun TP image for us. This week’s  edition of the Creepy Cute Chronicles  features a TP mummy.

1A2F81E5-3A7C-4D08-8377-3E93C9D991EF

Today I have a tutorial for you. I had planned to make a different card but once the creative juices start flowing, well, plans changed. I made a pop up box card, these are so fun to make especially when adding all the elements, but this is a mini version and hope you like it and make some yourself.
-First you need a piece of card stock that measures 8-3/4”x 4-1/4”. -you will need to score at the following  3-1/4”, 4-1/4”, 7-1/2", 8-1/2". flip over and score at 2-1/8".
-You also need a strip that measures 3-3/4"x 1/2" (score 1/4" on each end-fold opposite sides).

DC99420E-EC94-427F-80CF-08BDA146D05C8A6AD876-B2AA-4B63-A077-F0FFEB7464DA

-Choose a side and Cut on score marks up to the half mark. For the smaller 1" flaps cut off 1" and the 1/4" cut it all off(this is what will glue the box together)

3AB65EB4-1218-44F1-B4BD-58A45982F9CE

Add glue or a strong double sided tape to the little 1/4" flap and fold the card on to it. I added the 1/2” strip to the center of the card and this is so I can add different levels of dimension when adding images. You can add another level but because my card is smaller I only did one this time .
-Add acetate strips time your images and think of where you want to place them. I added strong tape to the bottom so I could glue them

Now it’s time to decorate our card. Like I mentioned I am using the TP Mummy from tonight’s CCC issue. But I am also unsung images 523 Creepy Cute Cafe and 528 Rosy & Twinky.  The cafe can be used for many things and I decided to use it as a TP shop  I played with it and changed how it’s supposed to be  cut half and flipped the top and bottom.  Also used the TP image from last week, which you can still download before it’s gone. 😉

I also used some of the TP images from the April Exclussive which you can only get if you’re a Premium Member.
For only $15/year you have access to all CCC images & premium versions of the CCC images, exclude monthly images and some occasional promotions. A really steal of you ask me😁

And here is my finished card, hope you enjoyed the process and give it a try 😉

April's Premium Membership Stamp

Hey there Creeps!

Its Celia from Paper Beats Rock Designs and its the first of April so you know what that means! A brand new stamp for the premium members for of the Creepy Cute Chronicles from Oddballartco. This months stamp is another nod to the current Global situation. It includes the medical masked Corona Chan stamp, 3 different rolls of toilet paper stamps, and a virus molecule stamp.
With it, I created this fun card for an awesome nurse I know who is working her butt off during all this chaos. I printed Chan  and Dr Feel Good #414 and colored them up with alchohol markers. Then I went and found a paper from my stash that had mandalas on it, which reminded me virus molecules. Then I stamped some fun circular images around the paper as well as the sentiment. (Not sure where this sentiment & circular shapes stamp came from, but it reminded me of germs again.)
After that I just distressed the edges of the paper, and outlined it with a .07 Pilot pen.
I propped Corona Chan up on some craft foam and glued her down to the front of the card with a bit of gauze behind her. I then stamped another sentiment on the inside and glued down Dr. Feel Good on the inside of the card. 
I think everyone needs a bit of encouragement right now, especially medical staff. I hope you are inspired to make a "Random Act of Kindness" card for someone you think needs one in these crazy days.

The Great TP Shortage CCC#98

6F280203-7198-441C-B405-69E5517553B0
Hello Oddballs!
Monica here today. First, hope everyone is doing well, staying safe and sane. We are living in uncertain times and dealing with difficult situations indeed. However, I will spare you my personal opinions except for this one. Be kind to one another, help each other out and find ways to make yourself happy and deal with anxiety, stress, and any other things you need help coping with.
Personally, crafting has been one of the best things to help me in a million ways. It is not only my love and passion but also my therapy.
