New Release Inspiration | Oddball Art Stamps

Today I bring you Ginny the Gardner, image #386 digistamp by Lizzy Love/Oddball Art Stamps. 

I love the quote, “Everything grows better when it’s loved” 

I wanted to do a quick page using some of my many rolls of washi tape that was fairly simple and tried the abstract placement of the washi tape to create the sky and rain hearts….even the lil strip of grass at the bottom is washi.

I painted this art journal page with Brea Reese Glitter Inks . I love how the colors blend and how bright and intense the colors are! Look at all that sparkle in the images above!!

Hope you enjoyed my post today and don’t forget to come join our Spread Your Wings blog challenge on on the Oddball Art Stamp Blog

I used the same Brea Reese colors as listed above to make this pocket page in my Mini Happy Planner. I added large sparkly sequin “bubbles.”  I will do a how to tutorial in the next few weeks on how I created the pocket page. 

Hope you enjoyed my post today.

Oddball Art Stamps | New Release Inspiration 

Dontcha just love unicorns?! And fairies? This lil cutie both wrapped up in a sassy and awesome package. She is one of the new releases from Oddball Art Stamps.

Cinda as a Unicorn – image #384

I also added Twinkles the unicorn in the fronton this art journal layout.

Twinkles – image 358 A

To create the art journal layout in my Dina Wakley mixed me journal I used several Brea Reese glitter and watercolor inks. Added a lil washi on the side and bottom after I trimmed around the top page with the lil Twinkle unicorn.

The skin color palette is Tim Holtz distress ink and thrill stars are silver confetti stars.

I would love to hear your thoughts and feedback on what you’d like to see on my blog.

Creepy Cuteness Galore!

It’s the final week of Black & White with a Pop of Color on Vera Lane! My design team post is filled with fun! 

The Girls on the Block were so much fun to paint black and white with just a touch of color.

Products used:

  • Brea Reese– glitter inks and waterbrush pens
  • Cason watercolor paper
  • Paper clips
  • Laminating film
  • Tacky Glue

Click on Girls on the Block thumbnail to get the digistamps. 

I absolutely love Eddie Scissorhands! He was definitely suited for the black and white theme. 

I only used the Brea Reese black glitter pen to paint him. Just rubbed the ink on my palette and watered it down to get the grays. The topiary is painted with phthalo green watercolor ink and gold glitter ink pen.

The lil monsters were painted with the same Brea Reese black glitter ink pen. I also used orange and crimson glitter inks. Aren’t the just creepy and adorable?!


Click on thumbnail to get the backyard monsters digistamps. Eddie Scissorhands is available by request by messaging Janet Klein on the Vera Lane Studio Etsy store. The Little Witch is also available by request as well.

The little witch digistamp set was painted with Dina Wakely Scribble Sticks. I will do a tutorial on them in the future. She can’t wait until Halloween and I can’t say as I blame her. It’s my favorite time of year!

Hope you enjoyed my design team post this week. Be sure to leave a comment on what you’d like to see on the blog. Also come join us over in the Vera Lane Studio Facebook group We have themed ATC swaps every month!
