Hi stampers! Happy Wednesday!  I guess I have ample time to blog today as my little buddy has a fever and feels puny.  Hopefully we won't add anymore symptoms into the mix.

February AND Sale A Bration are flying by so I figured I'd better get this stamp set inky before it was too late!  My mom grew up on a farm and now lives there although she doesn't have any animals now.  But her very favorite is chickens so I grabbed this one with her in mind!  It was perfect that it had a missing you sentiment because I'm pretty much always missing my momma!  I hope we can live closer to her one day!  They are actually coming to visit today IF the roads are ok.  They got some bad weather overnight.  I'm hoping to surprise Ian so I really hope he feels better this evening!

Anyway, I colored him in with my Blends and I thought that the Wood Textures DSP was a perfect match!    Some copper and lace accents were the finishing touches!

Happy stamping!

Mailable Monday - SAB Brochure Case

Hi stampers!  Happy Monday!  I've been trying to publish this post alllllll day  Gotta love a Monday! Have you checked out my Instagram?  You can find me @BadaBingPaperCrafting and you can see a fun little time lapse video of the making of this desert scene!

I cased this one from the SAB brochure.  I just love the Flowering Desert Stamp Set and it looks really great paired with the sentiment from Part of My Story which is a SAB set so you can earn it free with a $50 purchase!

The colors are also great together!  This one has a lot of stamping off which you don't even need scratch paper for this time!  Just stamp one then stamp another and maybe even another!  I added some faux stitching with Granite Gray marker because honestly, I can't remember how to thread my little sewing machine and it seemed like a lot of work ;-)

Happy stamping!

Happy Valentime's Day

Hi stampers!  No, that's not a typo in the title of my blog post.  That's how the 4 year old says Valentine's and I kind of love it :-)  I'm a bad mom and haven't made his card yet (he's requested LOTS of cards and treats lol) so that's on the agenda while he's at school.  I do have his treats ready to go for his class thanks to My Paper Pumpkin last month!

Speaking of MPP, it's turning SIX in March!  To celebrate, they are including a second bonus stamp set in each cute kit!

You can click the graphic to sign up!  Make sure to do it before March 10th!

Anyway today's card is super simple because I have dropped the ball on Valentine's and pretty much everything this week...we've had a lot to do, appointments and what not.  Whoops!  But that's what I love about Stampin' Up!  You can spend lots of time on complicated projects or a little time on simple ones that are still stinkin' cute, like this!

Isn't it cute?  All I did was stamp and color in with some Blends markers!

Happy Valentine's Day and happy stamping!

February Is Flying By

Hi stampers!  Happy Monday!  How can it be the week of Valentine's Day already?  January was so long but in true fashion, February is flying by!  I'm way behind on Valentine production but at least Ian's treats are mostly done thanks to January's My Paper Pumpkin!

I actually had a class with some friends and the refill kits (which are sold out now, I got them early, knew they'd be hot) over the weekend and we cranked out some pillow boxes!  We were delighted to find that there were a lot of extra pieces left over.  I supposed I knew this but I can't count ;-)  This kit was so amazing since it coordinated with the Animal Outing Bundle in the catalog!

While I used one of the remaining cut outs from the kit, you could easily swap out the stamped image in the stamp set for this card!  I actually was going to make it with the stamp set and then decided I was way too lazy to stamp and color it, LOL!  I just love these bright colors together!

Happy stamping!

One In A Chameleon

Hi stampers!  Happy Friday!  I have something fun for you today I think!  But first, we have to talk about My Paper Pumpkin or MPP for short!  My Paper Pumpkin is our cute and fun little surprise crafting box that shows up every month.

MPP is perfect for everyone but especially beginners or people who don't have or want to invest a lot of time, money, and space but still want to make pretty things!  The boxes come with everything you need to make the projects which vary from month to month (hence the surprise).  I had actually taken a break from it for a while and I was a SAD PANDA when I saw January's box!  It was SO cute!  And so fun!  They had made the kit so it coordinated with one of our current bundles in the Annual Catalog, Animal Outing!

This is one of the cutest sets in the catalog, I think!  There is a designer series paper that coordinates, too!  Anyway, I was able to snag a box from my friend and I'm having some friends over to make the cute Valentine's tomorrow!  I'll share them next week!

But, I've made some things with the stamp set from the paper pumpkin kit and I'm in love with this one!  I did a watercolor background and I will say this one took a while.  I let all of the layers and colors dry in between so make sure you have some time if you want to re-create it!

And it's so funny that Ian just came home yesterday with a chameleon he'd made at school where they are learning about them!  He's requested lots of cards and treats (lol) for Valentine's so I'll have to include this one for him!  He really is one in a million so this is perfect! ;-)

But seriously, how cute and clever is this?  I just love it!

They have also given us a little sneak peek into this month's kit!  It's sure to be cute and they have let us know it's cards!  If you want to sign up, you can just click HERE and make sure you put me as your demonstrator.

You can also sign up for pre-paid boxes (6 and 12 months) in my store using the shop 24/7 link over to the right and earn FREE Sale A Bration items!

Happy stamping!

Hi stampers!  Happy hump day!  I just can't get enough of this stamp set!  Maybe it's because it's so fun or maybe it's because it reminds me of the sun, which I feel like refuses to shine, lol!  It's foggy and gray today and it was yesterday, too!  I need the sun!!!!!

Anyway, I'm loving the color combo here!  And I love making cards just to say, hey!  I need to actually send some!  That's on my to-do list this month along with one million other things :-)
