Fab Friday 205

Hi stampers!  Happy Friday and happy New Year!  I hope that 2021 is off to a great start!  It's off to a wild one over here with Ian starting in person school!  Trying to figure out yet another routine has us all a little crazy :-)

And if you couldn't tell, we took a little breather over at Fab Friday BUT we're back now and ready to create and we hope you are too!  Let's check out the challenge!

Isn't it a fun sketch!  I have to laugh as the submissions were coming in, I had made an almost identical card to a teammate like while she was posting hers, great minds!  But here's my card!

I thought this was a perfect sketch to highlight this DSP that you can earn for FREE during Sale-A-Bration!  I have to say, when I saw it in the catalog I kind of went, meh.  It's not really my style and if I'm being honest, a lot of the stuff this year felt really early 2000's to me.  But, I kind of changed my tune when it came in.  It's pretty gorgeous!  Sometimes it just doesn't translate in the catalog ya know!

I also used the Embossing Folder.  I have been totally sleeping on this one!  It adds just that something special on a simple card!  Pick it up out of the Annual Catalog if you haven't.  It can add that extra touch to your project!

Make sure to check out what the rest of the team did!  And then play along!

Happy stamping!

Fab Friday 203

Hi stampers!  Wow, how can we be well on our way in December already?  Even though we start decorating and what not, pretty early, the Christmas season is never long enough for me.  I guess that's what makes it extra special though!  So you know my card for Fab Friday is going to be a Christmas card, right?  

It's time for a new challenge over there, let's check out the sketch!

And here's what I made!

And the Christmas tree background is back ;-)  I went with some non-traditional colors here with Jade, Pool Party (my DSP is retired, sorry), Melon, and some Magenta Madness peeking in there!  I think they work well together for a merry card!

Make sure to check out the team's designs and play along!

And while I'm not sharing much on the blog these days, you can find a lot more of my creations over on Instagram @BadaBingPaperCrafting.  Check it out and give me a follow!  

Happy stamping!

Fab Friday 201

Hi stampers!  Happy FriYAY!  I'm over here saying boo-hoo because I didn't sign up for the virtual Stampin' Up conference.  We won't even mention how sad I am that I SHOULD be traveling to SLC for the event in person, but 2020....

But I didn't sign up to save money and I knew I wouldn't be able to commit to all the sessions with doing school with Ian.  Oh well.  It may be one of the only events I've missed since Ian was born!

Anyway, it's time for a new challenge over at Fab Friday.  Hopefully I can get a lot of things stamped this weekend at least!  Let's check out the challenge!

And here's my card.

I kind of love this one just like I'm loving all the fall colors we have on the trees right now!  So pretty!  I used Cinnamon, Razzleberry, Bumble Bee, and Cajun Craze here.

I hope you'll play along with us!

Happy stamping!

Fab Friday 200

Hi stampers!  Happy Friday from the farm!  Well for a minute, Ian and I are actually headed back to Oklahoma this morning!  But, it's time for another challenge at Fab Friday!  It's actually our 200th challenge, can you believe that?  We aren't doing anything special because honestly, I'm at my limit with 2020 and virtual kindergarten :-)  But, it should be a fun Halloween challenge I think.  Of course I'm sure some of you will do other things with it that will knock our socks off!

 And here's my card!

I went kind of simple because I was getting ready to leave for Illinois but I really love how it turned out.  I kind of went for a rainbow effect!  I love these colors and I love that this card is a good mix of fun and creepy!

Please check out what the rest of the team did and play along!

Happy stamping!

Shrinky Dink Shaker Card

Hi stampers!  I'm actually blogging today, can you believe it?  I wanted to blog this card because I made a video. And the card is really cool :-)  Not only did I make a video but I actually managed to edit it AND do a voiceover!  Who am I???  I really want to make more videos and do a better job at them so we will see what happens!  Let me know what you think!

But first, let's take a look at the card.

ACK!  Isn't it so cute?  Do you see those cute little cups of cocoa???  I just love them!  I used Shrinky Dink plastic to stamp and make them.  Funny story, I was super excited and showed Jon and he was less than impressed.  Turns out, he thought I got them from Stampin' Up and just shrunk them myself, he didn't realize I stamped and colored them and then shrunk them.  He was much more impressed once I informed him.  What in the world would be the point of buying them like that then shrinking them?  Hahah!

I used the Warm Hugs Bundle for this card.  All of the little elements in this set would looks so cute shrunk up.

Anyway, I filmed a video for you about how I made them although not the whole card for time's sake.  It's my first time doing a voiceover so please be kind :-)  It was odd basically talking to myself while watching the video back.  And I did actually narrate the video while I filmed in case it didn't work out so there's a few gestures in the video.  Now that I know I can do a voiceover I'll have to work on getting rid of the gestures while filming :-)  

Please let me know if you enjoyed the video and if you're going to try some shrinky dinks!

Happy stamping!
