July Sneak Week BLOG HOP!

Welcome to our HOP!

I hope you’ve enjoyed all the Sneak Peeks from the week. Its been super fun for me to see what you think of each stamp each day. Literally, the best part πŸ™‚ Today each of the Odd Girls are featuring our last Sneak of the Week, Pinwheel Panda!

Pinwheel Panda has a tubby tummy and tushy. I can imagine him sitting in a field of grass and wildflowers perfectly content watching his pinwheel spinning in the breeze. He’d feel right at home at a birthday party OR on a congrats card. Β I went uber CAS for my sneak card with a kraft base and AC patterned paper circle. Then just faux stitched my way around. Panda is colored with copics in the classic panda colors of black and white. He’s fun to color! His tubby bits give you plenty of room to texture up his fur too. Β Here’s our measured piccy…

For your comment today, that will get you entered to win THE WHOLE JULY CLEAR STAMP RELEASE, I want to know…

The hop runs thru July 10th at 11:59 PM EST. Β Join us back on the SOG Blog on Monday when we announce all the winners! Thanks for stoppin by and joining us this week! Now make sure to hop along!

    Super cute card Kristy!!! I LOVE both PHOTO KAYLEE and BIG DAY TOBIE equally, and think I would be able to use both tons. I have really enjoyed the new releases this week. Hope you have a nice weekend πŸ™‚ :-))

  • Frances

    Love it! As for favourite from this release . . it would be toss up between Panda and Tobie as they are more ‘boy’ friendly but still cute. Can’t wait to get my hands on some! Fran x

  • Sylvia

    Hi Kristy,

    what a fun card! Love the simplicity of the kraft background and how it let the image ‘pop’ πŸ™‚

    I adore and like ALL of the new to be released stamps – seriously!
    But my absolutely favorite stamp is ‘Tiny Baker Tia’ πŸ™‚
    Maybe it’s because I love all things ‘sweet’ and this stamp set is all about ‘sweet’ :-)))))

    Thanks for the wonderful blog hop and all the wonderful inspiration! You really have a wonderful and super talented DT!!!!

    Fantastic card Kristy. That Panda is just the cutest !!

    Loved seeing all the peeks this week and they certainly haven’t disappointed. I love all the new stamps but if I had to choose just one I think it would have to be Photo Kaylee as she is so versatile and I could see me using it for lots of different cards and even scrap pages.

    Great hop !

  • Starla B

    This is so cute! I love the pop of bright color. =D

    I love Sweet Thinkin Mae…she’s just so sweet and innocent looking! She looks just like my little girl. =D I do love them all, though! They’re just adorable. (Photo Kaylee would have to be my second favorite!)

  • Kurlygirl

    First of all… I love your card. Love the CAS style.

    This panda is my favorite image. My daughter is into pandas right now, and she’s off to her first year of college in the fall. I’ve been collecting pandas to send her when she’s there. Definitely need this one! Thanks for the chance to win!


  • Tracey

    your card is just perfect!! my favorite image….well..its a toss up between photo kaylee and baker tia! i think, i’d pick photo kaylee as my fav though, because i just love anything to do with cameras! it is perfect for us paparazzi parents!! lol! congrats on all of the success you have found with SOG! it is awesome!!

  • Corry

    oh Kristy, I have soooooo fallen in love with this wee Panda along the way. Your team has done an outstanding job ! Yay! I really like Thinking Mae. Big Day Tobie is a close second and this Panda is third bestest! Thanks for the awesome hop!

  • Sara I.

    What an awesome hop Kristy – had so much fun this morning hopping and seeing all the fabulous creations by your very talented DT! I would have to say that my absolute fave would be Tiny Baker Tia – I love to bake so she definately tugged on my heartstrings – but I think that the chef’s hat dipped to the side with the pigtails did it for me!! πŸ™‚

  • Melissa

    Kristy – this card is so cute! I love that paper you have him sitting in – I thought it was fabric at first! Gorgeous. My favorite – ack! That’s so hard as they are all adorable! It’s a toss up between Mae and the Panda – wow but the Kaylee one was cute too…hmmmm, Mae’s little dress was just too cute, the Panda is about the sweetest, and Kaylee’s expression with that camera was darling…just one – ok, if I must Mae – I have a soft spot for her!!! All are wonderful and I hope to get my hands on some – but shhhh don’t tell hubby – If I remember correctly he already got me a ton!!!

  • Sandie

    Love all of the new stamps but if I had to pick a favourite it would be Tiny Baker Tia!!

    Thanks for great inspiration from the whole team. πŸ˜€

  • Alba

    I must say that Tobie is the character I like more!!! And if I look at “Big Day Tobie” it’s just the best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! πŸ™‚

  • AnnikaS

    Cute card and great colouring!

    My favourite has to be this sweet panda with his pinwheel. I remember how I used to love pandas and pinwheel when I was little. This stamp gives me happy feelings.

  • Amy Y

    This new panda baby is a total cutie Kristy… I just want to give him a big squeeze!
    You’ve really outdone yourself with such a fun and fab new stamp release and I’ve looked forward to seeing each new image every morning! πŸ™‚

  • Sally K

    this is soo sweet kristy and my fav stamp of the release has to be photo kaylee but then i am torn with panda too i just want them all! πŸ˜€ xx

  • Rachel

    Hehe, I like how you talked about his “tubby bits.”

    My favorite one from this past week is Mae because it can be used on ANY card depending on how it’s dressed up and decorated. Thanks for the chance!

  • Kim Kelley

    Way to hard to decide…probably the Pinwheel Panda. He is versatile with how you can use him..both girl and boy, tags, cards, decorations for baby showers etc…love him. Such great coloring on your card!

  • Laila

    Ohh hard choice. But I think I have to go with Panda :O) have a thing about pandas and other animals that looks cuddly. And he sure does :O)
    Hugs Laila

  • Ardilla

    Your project is very nice!!!

    I canΒ΄t decide between Tia and Toby… Both of them caught me! But if I have only one option to chose from, I would choose Toby, because I donΒ΄t have many male stuff and I think that one is really cute and could work not only for kids, but also for grown ups…

    I finish the hop but I couldnΒ΄t leave comments in the blogs where the window pops up… today blogger only allowed me to leave comments in the ones that the window is below the post. Thank you for the chance, Kristy!

  • silvia Mendoza

    all of the new stamps are beautiful but my favorite are tobie because it reminds me of my little nephew, Chris. Also the baker is so adorable.

  • Ashley N Newell

    Oh my goodness! This whole release has been SO darn cute! I’m so glad you told me about it when we emailed last week! This panda is my favorite. While all the kiddos are adorable, pandas have a very special place in my heart. I think I’m going to get a tattoo of one to represent my younger son who kind of looks like a panda and not just because he’s Asian. πŸ˜€

  • Lillian Child

    I’m torn between Tia and Kaylee, as my other passions besides cardmaking is baking and photography! But I think Tiny Baker Tia wins out, as my love for cupcakes trumps my picture taking hands down. Thanks for such a fun week!

  • Kelly H

    Super cute card, it’s a touch choice to say what my favorite reveal of a stamp design has been this week, it’s a toss up between the panda and tobie, but am gonna have to go with tobie, as it makes my boy craft making easier and much more fun.

  • Pat Rinker

    Hi Kristy! I love your work! (You’ll be hearing from me about a Chibi as soon as I get my pics cropped.) The new stamps are all adorable, but my favorite has to be Tiny Baking Tia! Mostly, because she reminds me of my daughter. Thanks for doing the Blog Hop and giving more inspiration!

  • Corinne

    Fabulous card, Kristy! Awesome CAS and that PP and stitching just finished it off! Your panda is so well-colored too!

    Looooove the hop! Seriously, I wouldn’t be surprised if you’ve got everybody applying for the DT!! Your stamps are uber cute! I can’t just pick one favorite- I really REALLY love them all!!

    Mae is super gorgeous and her dress is really pretty – I could see her in so many different cards!

    Kaylee and her camera are divine! She is perfect for all of my projects – from cards to scrapbooking to 3D creations! Her Polaroid cam is too darling!

    Tia the tiny baker – Helloooooo!!! Who doesn’t like sweets? I could picture her in a card already and I’ve got the best paper/ embellies in mind. Now I’m hungry!

    Tobi- well, I have two sons so I’m always looking for stamps that are perfect for boys but are as cute as well!!

    Panda -‘OMG! Can you get any more Adorable??!! Love his simple cuteness yet the DT has shown all the various ways of coloring him!!

  • Emmy

    Love your card!!
    Hmm.. hard question! They are all so cute!
    But if I really have to pick one I’d pick Sweet thinkin Mae, she’s just so adorable!

  • Rosalie Miller

    Wow super cute, really πŸ™‚ If I had to pick one stamp for my fave, it would be Tiny Baker Tia…Although I love all of them I pick her because I got a Kenmore stand mixer for an early B-day present, and thought she would be so adorable stamped on my machine πŸ™‚ Your card is cute and everything you do is so inspiring, this site just brightens up my days!!! :giggle:

  • Christy

    Love the card!! I think my fave of the week is Tiny Baker Tia. I LOVE to cook and make fun treats in the kitchen!!! She is so adorable and so like me with her love of sweets!! πŸ˜€

  • Paula Ponton (PEP)

    I’m new to SOG but rather thrilled to see what you’ve done & that you have non-digi versions too. I like your fur colouring on this little chap & your stitching on the kraft – especially the corner stitches which curve. As to my favourite: Sweet Thinkin Mae! because I can use her for colour practice (your Copics info so helfpul thanks) & showcasing different hair combinations. The dress is great for doing folds & the face provides scope for shading of facial features. Even her face can be used to demonstrate different ethnic skin colours. Her legs can be coloured as trousers & I love the interchangeable sentiment panel. One of those stamps that I could take away on holiday & just colour in an infinite variety of ways.
    Brilliantly versatile.

  • Stina Riswall
