Kristy shared this with us about her card:

“During the holidays i love making snowy winter inspired cards. For this card I couldn’t help using the cute polar bear and giving him some light snow flakes and just as freshly fallen snow glistens in the sun, I added some sparkle to the snowflakes as well as using the glittery cardstock. For the snow flakes I used Teal Zeal from Memento which is a very rich color ink (its the same as the sentiment is stamped in) but I wanted it to have a very soft feel and not to over power my back ground. So I stamped it on a scrap paper twice before stamping it the third time onto my background paper.”

If you like Some Odd Girl, be sure to check back later in the day, because we will be giving away some of their stamps in a World Card Making Day giveaway!

CHA Summer 2012 New Exhibitor: Some Odd Girl

Clear stamp company Some Odd Girl was one of the standouts of the new exhibitor section at CHA Summer 2012 in Chicago.

Michigan-based Some Odd Girl was founded in 2010 by owner Kristy Dalman as a digital stamp company. In May 2011, she branched into physical products and began producing clear stamps of her unique, quirky characters.

Many companies are currently offering stamp designs of human characters. Most of those designs are somewhat vintage or cute looking, and of young children. Some Odd Girl stands out because it offers designs of more mature looking figures (like those pictured above and below). The company’s designs feature a modern styling that is closer to anime or gaming avatars than it is to most of the current character stamps on the market.
