A Perfectly Odd Blog Hop!!

Hello!  WELCOME to a Perfectly Odd Hop!  We have partnered up with the ladies from Some Odd Girl to bring you something fun and different!


We had the pleasure of meeting some of the Odd Girls at CHA in Vegas, and a collaborative event was an absolute NO-BRAINER!  Would the Odd Girls like to try out some fun tools?  Heck yes!  Does the Perfect Paper Crafting team want to play with some cute stamps?  Sure thing!  And it's a match made in heaven...

Today, both teams come together to bring you a fabulously inspiring BLOG HOP that will run through Sunday, November 17th.  There are 15 stops along the way including the main blogs, and PLENTY of inspiration for you to enjoy, so we hope you have as much fun as we've all had in this little partnership!

If you're not already familiar with Some Odd Girl, you are in for a TREAT!  They offer clear and digital stamps, cut files and new accessories, and they are cute and quirky to boot!  Once you see their unique style, you’ll always be able to spot them! 

You should have arrived from Suzanne's blog, but in case you get lost or distracted along the way, here's the hop order:

Be sure to comment at EVERY stop and you'll be eligible to win one of TWO prize packs that include one Perfect Paper Crafting tool and one Some Odd Girl stamp set of your choice!

I made a couple of cards using Some Odd Girl's Under the Sea Mae and my Perfect Layers rulers.  I love this stamp set!  Not only are the girls gorgeous but that narwhal and sea horse are adorable.

This is my first card.  I paired a mermaid and a sea animal friend for each card.  I decided to use just a simple mat with my 3/16th width ruler.  I used some gelatos for the background after I embossed it with some swirls on watercolor paper.  Also added some gesso and stamped the shell on there as well but might be hard to see in this photo.  I added lots of sparkle and some rhinestones too.

Here is a close up photo.

This is my second card and I went with a similar design just different colors.  I love how this one turned out too.  I had a lot of fun coloring up these images and just experimenting with the backgrounds.

A closer photo of Mae and her sea horse friend.

And for additional inspiration, visit the Some Odd Girl blog all week to see how the Odd Girls combined their stamps with our Perfect Paper Crafting tools!  You might even see some guest appearances from some of our talented team!  You have until Sunday at midnight EST to leave your comments, and Some Odd Girl and Perfect Paper Crafting will each draw one winner, to be announced on Monday, November 18th. 

Next on the hop is Alexis!

Have a Perfectly Odd day, and good luck!
