Some Odd Girl's STASH CHALLENGE #4 - make it SHIMMER!

Welcome to STASH CHALLENGE #4, Odd friends! We were so thrilled with the response to Saturday's blog hop, and the new release seems to be very popular! Glad you all seem to be enjoying the images as much as we do! :)

First of all, a reminder that THESE beauties are now available at :

But remember there's also a FREEBIE every month (right now there's a BONUS freebie for reaching 100 members in our SNR group, but you're going to have to join the group if you wanna see what I'm talking about, and GRAB it, because it's SO stinkin' cute!), so while you don't have to use a Some Odd Girl image to play along with our challenges, you get a BONUS entry if you do, and we are making it really easy for you! :)

So a VERY big thank you to everyone who made the hop successful, and to those who participated (and hosted!) in Digi Day at SNR! It was a ton of fun, and we are all looking forward to doing it again!

Let's kick things off today with CONGRATULATIONS, shall we? With an impressive TEN entries for STYLE CHALLENGE #3, and EVERY SINGLE ONE used a Some Odd Girl image! That made the count TWENTY for the prize, and our lucky winner is......

#19, belonging to HEATHER!
Congrats, Heather! Please email and she'll hook you up with your winnings! Here's the sweet card Heather made:

And our two faves for this challenge are:
This one, by Sally K (love how she combined the images to make a little scene - wouldn't Kody and Mae make the cutest little campfire couple?!)

And this one, from Cassandra! (could this card SCREAM summer surfin' any louder? and how about that sparkle on Kody's surfboard?!)

Congrats, ladies! Please email and she'll hook you up with your blinkie code, plus your loyalty points for the shop!

WOOT! So that brings us to TODAY's challenge, and I'm really excited about this one! Ready?

Make it SHIMMER!
For this one, be sure to include some stuff that will add SPARKLE or SHINE! Not just the usual rhinestones and pearls, but maybe some kind of heat embossing, or some glimmer mist (or a reasonable facsimile), or even some glitter, stickles or paint... The Some Odd Girl images (especially the latest releases!) lend themselves to LOTS of possibilities for this challenge, so go to it! :)

Check out the inspiration from our Odd Girls....

Kimmy LOADED up the shimmer effect with this gorgeous
MerMae card (love how the bubbles are repeated throughout the card!)

Kristy made Merman Kody an underwater GOD with some
shiny transparencies and blingy foil!

Marcie made a fab earthy card using the adorable Hoot,
and blinged up the leaves and hearts! YUMMY!

Robin has the gorgeous sparkle going on with the paper and on
Fairy Fly Away Mae's wings and bow here!

Shelly used MerMae and glitzed her all up right on this fun scrapbook page!

Leah (that's me!), with shimmery birds, glittery eyes, wings, bow and
polka dots for Fairy Fly Away Mae, plus foil paper:

Jennifer threw down the gauntlet with this gorgeous
Mermaid Kaylee and Sunny Rays card - how cute and HAPPY is this?!

Piece of cake, right? Well let's see what you can do with SHIMMER for your project, upload your brand new creation below, and do it before midnight on WEDNESDAY, June 30th, for your chance to win a freebie of your choice and that ever elusive Hula Kaylee!

Don't forget to upload your Some Odd Girl creations (cards, scrapbook pages, altered items, tags, ATCs, whatever!) to our Gallery, and you might be featured in our newsletter! Happy crafting, Odd friends! We'll see you with another NEW RELEASE on June 29th!
