Fab Friday 174

Hi stampers!  Happy Friday!  I'm not going to lie, I hate this card, lol!

I had a bad flare up of my occipital neuralgia yesterday so it is what it is.  At least I managed to stamp something!  It just didn't turn out quite as I pictured and I chose to go rest instead of a redo ;-)

Here's the challenge!

And here's what I made.

Make sure to check out the rest of the team and play along with us!

Happy stamping!

Halloween Hoot

Hi stampers!  Happy Thursday!  I'm sharing another card today from my live video on World Card Making Day.  You can find that video and the supplies used for the card in my FB group!

It's not often that I think I have a really fantastic idea but I think this one is pretty nifty!  I thought this little owl in Check You Out and these books would work perfectly with the book pattern in the Monster Bash DSP!  See for yourself!

I also love these colors!  I wouldn't normally put them together for Halloween but they work!   And I love that they are unexpected!  I cut all my books and the owl out and popped them up on dimensionals.  I think those books on the DSP could be cute cut out for accents as well!  I probably just gave away my genius idea, hehe!

Take look at your stamps and find unconventional ways to incorporate sets into holiday cards!

Happy stamping!

Hi stampers!  Happy Hump Day!  I have a simple little card to share today using the Check You Out Stamp Set which is the one I used on World Card Making Day!  This one just uses stamps, ink, and paper again but you can set it apart just a bit with some fussy cutting!

My WCMD cards were kind of girly and I think this one is a little more masculine.  My dad recently had a small surgery so I think I'll send him this one!

You can find the supplies in my FB group.  Make sure to join if you haven't!

Happy stamping!

WCMD Part 1

Hi stampers!  Saturday was World Card Making Day!  I spent a good portion of the afternoon stamping away and I couldn't be happier!  Since having Ian, I have a hard time staying focused and stamping for long periods of time as well as coming up with ideas!  Even when he's in Daddy-Day-Care (aka sno-cones, bike riding, and video games hahahaha)!  You'll hear me yell at him to go hang out with dad in the video LOL!  The kid is with me ALLLLLLL day and only sees Jon in the evenings yet he still wants to bug me.  I mean, at the end of the day, I don't even want to hang out with ME! ;-)  Anyway, you can find the video here in my FB Group.

In the video, I just kind of thought you could hang out with me while I stamped and see a bit of my creative process!  I started out with a simple card using Stamps, Ink, and notecards and then I did a slightly stepped up version.  Props to Erica Cerwin because I cased the general idea and colors from her <3 p="">

The color is slightly off since it's so dark here in the mornings!  But how cute are these cards?  For the stepped up version, I just cut out the middle book and added a heart on dimensionals.  A couple of glitter dots finished it up, keeping it still pretty simple and mailable!

Stay tuned for something a little unexpected with this little guy (or gal).  You can sneak a peek of that if you join the group and watch the video!    That's also where you can find the supply list!

I  hope you got to stamp on WCMD and had a great one!

Happy stamping!

Sparkly Spider

Hi stampers!  Happy Friday!  Quick post today with a cute card I made with the Monster Bash Suite.

There are a couple of items I didn't use in the suite on my card but I do have!  Did you know you can get all of the items using only one item number if you want them all???  Pretty nifty!

My sentiment is from the September My Paper Pumpkin Kit and there are still some available as of this post in the online store!  I colored my jars with Blends and that DSP is fabulous because it's all worn looking and I didn't have to do a thing!

It's hard to see in the photograph but I used our Shimmery Crystal Effects on the spider and he's so cute!  If spiders can be cute!

And can you see where I goofed on this card???  I accidentally stamped on watercolor paper in Memento ink so my Blends bled a little bit on the paper but it worked I guess.  I MEANT to use staz-on and watercolor but I just went with it ;-)

Happy stamping!

Baroque and Boos!

Hi stampers!  Happy Thursday!  It's like 60 out and FINALLY feels kind of like fall!!!  Woohoo!  I. Am. Here. For. It.  I'm also here for this cute and spooky Halloween card!

I used my Basic Patterns Decorative Masks to sponge a background on.  I love this one, it's like a baroque pattern.  It's so spooky and extra spooky, I think, if you omit parts of it!

My image is embossed in black and then I just did a little watercoloring!  You can find all the supplies linked in my FB group, make sure to join!  I'm switching over to a group over my page because FB doesn't like to show you posts from pages so you'll be sure to see all the things if you join the group, they are much more user friendly!  You can also set your notification settings the way you want them!

Happy stamping!

An Apple A Day

Hi stampers!  We're halfway to the weekend!  Will you be stamping over the weekend?  Saturday is World Card Making Day so I'm going to try to get in my stamp room!

Here's a fun fall card you could send to anyone!  I love the Harvest Hellos stamp set!  Ian had a little taste test of different varieties of apples last week and keeps talking about it.  That totally reminds me of this card, ha!  His favorite was the pink lady!

Our DPS stacks sure make cute apples!  I used the Brights Collection here with Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight, and Granny Apple Green (fitting, no?).

I used some post it notes and masked off the comma and the rest of this sentiment from the set and just used the Hey There.  Don't forget you can usually use your sentiment in any way you want!

I did some pattern mixing yesterday and today should we call this pattern coordinating?  Ha!  I paired the Buffalo Check Background Stamp with the gingham.  I wasn't sure it would work, but it totally does, or at least I think so.  What do you think?

In keeping with our new and improved website, the supply list can now be found on my FB group which you can get to HERE.  Make sure to click and join so you don't miss anything!

Wherever We Roam

Hi stampers!  Happy Tuesday!  I'm sharing a sweet card today that I made over the weekend decor the Stampin' Through the Catalog Challenge.  They are focusing on the Holiday Catalog at the moment and I've tried to play along!

I made this card specifically for my bestie who lives in Iowa.  We don't see each other very much but whenever we do, it's like no time or distance has passed!  <3 p="">

First off, I love these colors together!

  • Crushed Curry
  • Terracotta Tile
  • Rococoa Rose
  • Seaside Spray
  • Pretty Peacock

Second, while this set may be in the Holiday Catalog it is NOT just for Holidays.  I cut this sentiment apart and left the part about Christmas off.  The inside says, "Our hearts are next door" and I just love that!  I also love the font mixing in this set!

My houses are also stamped and then cut out and popped up on dimensionals.

Make sure to play along with #STTCchallenge if you have this set!  They will feature you on Instagram!  Tag them with that hashtag up there!

In keeping with the new platform from SU, my supplies are now linked on the images in my FB group.  Please ask to follow along by clicking right HERE!

Hey There, Pumpkin

Hi stampers!  Happy Monday!  Technology is NOT my friend!  Anyone else?  I'm sharing a cute card today but my photo editing app wasn't working so I did the best I could, I hope I do it justice since it's JUST SO CUTE!

How fun is the pattern mixing on this card???  Don't be afraid to mix them up!  And don't forget about our Decorative Masks!  This set from the Holiday Catalog are super cute and to be honest, I forgot these simple dots were in there!  I inked them up with a sponge and made sure I went heavier with the ink in some places and lighter in the other and I LOVE it!

One of my oldest and best friends always greets me with, "Hey, Pumpkin", so this card will be on the way to her!

Fab Friday 173

Hi stampers!  Happy Friday!  It's time for another challenge over at Fab Friday!  It's a sketch this time around and I really love it!

I grabbed From Our House To Yours off of my shelf!  This is an adorable little set and I thought it would be so cute here, and it was!  Again, you can find the supplies linked on my FB group!  If you don't follow, please do so!

I wouldn't normally use all of these colors together but I think they work!  The picture doesn't do it justice!  It won't stop raining long enough to get a good photo!

This card is destined to my best friend who I miss daily!  The inside says "our hearts are next door."  I love that!!!! <3 p="">
Made sure yo check out what the rest of the team did and play along!

I'm Baaaaack

Hi stampers!  It's been quiet around here hasn't it?  I've been busy and then I've also been dealing with some neck and headaches.  I'm feeling ok today so I'm trying to get alllll the things that have fallen by the wayside, done!!!!  I thought I'd share this card really quick!

Isn't it spooky?  I did a similar one last Halloween and I thought this little die from Spooktaular Bash looked just like a tombstone!  Add a creepy sunset and done!

I added a little bit of shimmer paint for more spooky effects!

I'm going to test out not doing the supply list anymore.  Our new webstore has a function where you can find the products on my FB post so if you're looking for supplies, just head over to BadaBingPaperCrafting if you have questions about any products that were used!

Fab Friday 172

Hi stampers!  Happy Friday....the 13th.  Eek!  With the full moon and today, things are always a little sideways, lol!  It's been busy over here with the new office space I've gotten and I've worked hard to get it cleaned up (the whole house, construction is so gross and messy) and functional.  Anyway, taking some time to share the new Fab Friday challenge with you!

Here's what I did!  I had to use the gingham DSP in Pretty Peacock because I just love it!  I thought it would pair perfectly with Country Home.  I also thought that would pair with the Mercury Glass Designer Acetate and Snowfall Accents Puff Paint and I wasn't wrong!  We tend to get caught up in the Holiday Catalog but this is a great autumn themed set from the Annual Catalog!

I stamped right on the acetate and then cut out my can.

You can see the puff paint here.  It was fun to use!  I just dabbed a little on each cotton boll and then was careful not to tip my paper while I heated it from the bottom.  It popped up kind of like popcorn! Isn't it fun and perfect for this set????

Make sure to check out what the team did!  I'm out, got a headache and in a weird funk so maybe I'll come back and link supplies later.

Happy stamping!

Wicked Spiders

Hi stampers!  Happy Friday!  I'm using the Wonderfully Wicked Stamp Set again.  I forgot I'd made this way back before I went to Illinois and it's the perfect time to share since the Stampin' Through the Catalog Challenge yesterday was this stamp set!

I actually only used the sentiment stamps and then incorporated the Wicked Dies.  I don't really like spiders, in fact, I hate them (and some BIG ones live in Oklahoma....yikes) but these guys are pretty cute!

I like the combination of black, gray, grape and mango for Halloween, too!  The Monster Bash DSP may not be in the same suite as this bundle but it sure works great!

I'm off to try to stay out of the way of the painters who are here to paint my cabinets!  Eeeeeeeeppppp!  I'm so excited!

Wonderfully Wicked

Hi stampers!  Happy Thursday!  It still feels weird to write that with the long weekend.  I am so confused!  Usually going to the gym and doing different classes helps me keep my days straight but with the installation of my new cabinets, I haven't been able to do that either.  Hopefully I'll get straightened out next week!

Anyway, I'm sharing another Halloween card today.  I used Wonderfully Wicked for the Stampin' Through The Catalog Challenge this week!  I'm loving their challenges, it's really helping me to USE the sets I have!  Wonderfully Wicked is a super fun set and I've combined it here with the Ornate Frames Dies.  While they aren't a bundle, they work great together!

I love that little cat silhouette.  I did a Smoky Slate wash behind him, let it dry then splattered it and stamped him.  I probably should have used the Stamparatus since I was stamping on watercolor paper which has some texture, but I didn't think of it.  My panel is also watercolor paper and was splattered then spritzed.

Happy stamping!

Happy Holiday Catalog Day

Hi stampers!  Happy hump day!  It is Wednesday, right?  A three day weekend always gets me!  But I'm pretty sure it is because today is the day you can order from the 2019 Holiday Catalog!

I just adore this catalog!  Even though it's almost 100 here, September always feels like fall to me!  And since it's September, I thought I better get a move on making Halloween stuff!  This catalog has the cutest Halloween goodies!  The Spooktacular Bash Bundle is just the cutest and those frames will see a lot of use outside of halloween!

When I saw the little potion bottles, I knew I had to have this bundle.  I've had these guys colored and cut out on my desk for a while now just waiting to make it onto a card.  I also thought they'd look super cute in frames, it feels kind of Harry Potter inspired!  I saw a few other stampers doing this so they beat me, hehe!

 I actually colored them in with the Pigment Sprinkles.  Those colors are SO vibrant.  I used a little watercolor pallet to make my colors.  You don't need much powder at all or much water!  These are so concentrated!  IF you get too much water or color you can try to blot with a paper towel.  Just a little tip.  My splatters were done with my black marker and Basic Gray.  My sentiment is from To Every Season which is a super cute stamp set that covers a lot of holidays!  Real bang for your buck there!

Also starting today, is the DSP sale!  You can find a select list of papers in the online store that are buy three, get one free!  Of course, I'm not organized enough to have any projects done with them right now.  We can pretend it's because I'm forced out of my stamp studio but we all know that's just me :-)

It's also an exciting time around here because I'm getting cabinets installed in my stamp studio, which is why my stamp stupid is displaced. You can see some sneak peeks over on my instagram account!  I'm hoping being more organized helps me stamp more and be more creative!  This card was made in a makeshift are in my living room which I actually kind of like (lol) but it can't stay there!

Happy stamping!

Check You Out Again

Hi stampers!  I hope everyone had a great long weekend!  We did!  We did a lot of nothing which was great after a busy week for Ian and I and Jon getting back from a week in Belgium!  The one thing I DID do was empty out my stamp studio because the cabinet guys are coming TODAY to install my new built ins!  I'm so excited and also nervous.  I hope they are exactly how I want them to be!  I'm also strangely excited to organize all my stuff in there!  My stuff is spread all over the house and I've set up a small shop in the living room much to Jon's dismay.  Although, he's a little jealous and said I can stay in the living room if he can have my office, hahahaha!  I do have two desk spaces being installed so I MAY let him move in but it all depends on how much space I end up needing, hahaha!

Anyway, here's another card with Check Me Out because it's adorable and I'm obsessed!  I also can't believe how much I like Rococo Rose!  I'm so not a rose colored kinda girl but I really do love this one!

My little owl needed just a little something so I cut out a little heart from Stitched Labels and it was perfect!  Off to get my little owl to school!

Happy stamping!
