Fab Friday 138

Hi stampers and happy Friday!  It's been summer break over here for a week and I'm riding the struggle bus after only a few days.  HOW did I stay home with Ian ALL day EVERY day before preschool?  LOL!  I got a taste of freedom and I like it!  He's also in a very threenager stage, at least for him.  He's a pretty good boy so even just a little attitude seems like a lot to me.  I hope we survive the summer, ha!

Anyway, it's Friday and time for a new challenge over at Fab Friday!  We have some monochromatic colors for you this time!

Even if pink isn't your thing, you should give these a try!  If nothing else, these are TOTAL flamingo colors and that's exactly what I did!

I stamped on watercolor paper and using the Stamparatus for good ink coverage.  Watercolor paper is very textured and I don't always get a great image so the tool is perfect for that use!  I used all three colors and then I used my aquapainter to blend them around and make them bleed a little.  But just a little.  If you do this, go light with the water.  You can always keep adding more but it's hard to take it away! I waited until it was dry splattered it a bit with my markers.

A few other little details and it was done!  I hope you like it and I hope you check out what the rest of the design team did and please play along!  We'd love to have you!

Fancy Friday - True Gentleman

Hi stampers!  So....I have some super exciting news to share!  I was asked to be a part of the Fancy Friday Blog Hop and I'm so honored to be amongst the talented current and past Artisans on the team!  It seriously made my whole month!

This month's challenge was to incorporate the True Gentleman Suite or at least use it as our inspiration.  The colors in this one are just so good!  I'm glad this was the challenge as this is on of my way underused suites!  There's just so much good stuff and so little time for stamping!

Anyway, I wanted to create a super masculine card and what's more manly than a suit jacket and tie?

There are about a million tutorials on YouTube on how to do this and make an origami tie, so I didn't want to reinvent the wheel and do one myself when you can simply search for one...and May has been crazy and I flat out didn't have time :-)

But if you follow me, you know I'm a lazy stamper (ha) and don't do things that are hard to do or take a lot of time so if I can do this, you can too!  Just search for "suit jacket card" or something similar.

Unfortunately, the DSP is sold out but you could easily create your own DSP for the tie or substitute other paper!

And here's what it looks like fully open.  It really was simple to make!

It really is a nifty little card!  Wanna see it in acton?  Head over to my InstaGram account @badabingpapercrafting and see a little boomerang video!

Now it's time to see my friend and fellow ADT member, Shannon, and what she came up with!  It's sure to be amazing!

Happy stamping!

Bye Bye Yay You

Hi stampers!  Happy Thursday!  I'm still working my way through retiring products and I'm really going to miss this host stamp that you can still earn for about another week!

Yay you is so cute and lends itself to super simple but still cute, cards!

I'm also sad about Dapper Denim retiring but what can ya do?  Oh and I'm also trying to stick the Enamel Shapes on everything ;-)  I'll really miss those as well!

Denim, emerald, and coral make a surprisingly cute combo, don't you think?  I guess I'll really miss Emerald Envy now that I think about it, too!  I'm just a downer today, aren't I?  LOL!

Happy stamping!

Celebration Time - I'm Crying

Hi stampers!  So Ian has a new habit of telling me, "I'm cwwwying" when he's crying.  I can't help but laugh because, no duh, and be super frustrated as well.  It's usually because he's in trouble instead actually being upset about something legit lol!  BUT, I have to say I feel kind of like him with Celebration Time retiring.  I've said it before, but it's my all time favorite bundle!  You need to grab this one while you still can!

I pulled it out one last time (I think) over the weekend and used a sample in the catalog for my inspiration!  As of this post, I think all of the items are still current but things are starting to sell out!  I'm loving these bright colors with the pop of black and white.

WHY didn't I use this particular stamp before this week?  It's so cute!

Farewell Foil Frenzy

Hi stampers!  Happy Tuesday!  Lots and lots going on here this week and for the foreseeable future!  I did manage to make a few cards over the weekend.  I combined the outgoing Foil Frenzy DSP with the new Varied Vases set.  I'll miss this DSP, it's really pretty!  I'll really miss these doilies, too!

I also featured my new favorite color, Gorgeous Grape!

Trying my best to use up some of my stash but still feel like I'm not making a dent.  Who else understands? :-)

Happy stamping!
