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 202

 Hi stampers!  Happy Friday!  I hope you're all doing well in this weird, weird new world.  We are plugging along and looking forward to a week off as both teacher and student, lol!  Anyway it's time for a new challenge over at Fab Friday!  We have some colors for you this week!


And here's what I did!

I just love this DSP and these colors together!  I think I'll send this one to my momma, I miss her!

Make sure to play along with us!

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!

Fab Friday 199

Hi stampers!  Happy Fri-yay!  I'm serious when I say Friday has taken on a whole other meaning during this pandemic and virtual schooling!  There is nothing like Friday afternoon!  Anyway, I did manage to stamp a card for the new Fab Friday challenge in between lessons!

And here's my card!

The Peace & Joy Bundle is so fun!  Paired with some DSP and the Sprig Punch made a fun and easy card!

Make sure to check out what the rest of the team did and play along with us.  We love seeing what you make!

Fab Fri 198

Hi stampers!  Happy Friday!  The weeks are flying by as I try to stamp in between virtual kindergarten lessons.  LOL!  

We have a new challenge for you over at Fab Friday!  Let's check it out!

I sort of adore these colors together.  I don't use Gray Granite much but I should start!  And Misty Moonlight is quickly becoming a favorite color!  I've been itching to use Peaceful Nativity so I pulled it out.

My card doesn't look exactly like what I envisioned but I still like it!  I hope you like these colors and will play along with us!

Happy stamping!

Fab Fri 197

  Hi stampers!  I guess I only post on Fab Friday days now :-)  That's 2020 for you, right?  We have started virtual kindergarten here so getting anything else done now is a struggle!  I mean, I wasn't good at blogging before all of this, LOL!

I do ask as you're reading, to pause for a minute to honor the victims of 9/11.  It's a day we will never forget.  It is also my sweet Grandma's birthday and I always hoped that having such a sweet lady born on that day helped to cancel out at least a tiny bit of the sadness.  She was a truly special lady!

Moving on, here is the challenge for this round!

And here's my card!

I used the stamp set in the Joy Of Sharing Card Kit from the Holiday Catalog.  Don't forget to use your kit sets outside of the kit!  And my label was made using the Ornate Frames Dies which were from a Halloween bundle last year.  Just because they were for Halloween doesn't mean they don't make great accents for all kinds of other projects.  I'm making a mental note to get them out more often!  Look how great they are!

Make sure to check out everyone else's creations and play along!

Happy stamping!

Fab Friday 196

 Hi stampers!  Happy Friday!  I'm sorry I haven't been posting here much but I do try to post regularly on Instagram!  The year 2020 is just too much for me with everyone home all the time and now virtual school. OY!  My computer screen died a few weeks ago, too!  So I've been bumming Jon's laptop and there's nothing like your own!  It finally made it back to me yesterday!

But at least I have a card for Fab Friday this week! It's still hot here but I'm more than ready for fall and everything that comes with it like sweaters and leggings and cool evenings!  This color combo is perfect for fall!

And here's what I made!

It's simple and I just love it!  I love combining dies and embossing folders and I also love how the pattern on the DSP and the ribbon play off one another.  I think Bumblebee is becoming one of my favorite colors!

Make sure to check out what the rest of the team did and play along!  Hopefully you're managing 2020 better than I am!

Fab Friday 195

Hi stampers!  Happy Friday!  We all know I stink at posting, lol!  I have at least been posting on Instagram some, make sure you follow me there!  Between the new dog and attempting to rearrange my office to share it as Ian's school room, I'm more scattered than usual!

At least I have a card for Fab Friday this week!

And here's my card!

My colors are slightly off due to the lighting when I took the photo.  I'll try to fix it later!  But it's Just Jade, Mint Macaron, and Magenta Madness!  And I love it!  Press On is the cutest set!

I hope you'll check out what the rest of the team did and play along!

Happy stamping!

Fab Friday 194

Hi stampers!  It's been quiet around here!  We went home to Illinois for two weeks (Jon only one but he was happy with his first week off since Christmas) and then adopted a new puppy!  So, we have been busy!  But, I'm here with a new challenge at Fab Friday today!

My card is just what I needed today.  Life has been very overwhelming lately and this card says it perfectly!  Of course, it's easier said than done!  But here it is!

I did mess up.  I wanted to stamp the heart in Poppy and the stars in Daffodil but ya know, 2020 ;-)

Make sure to play along with us!

Happy stamping!

Bonus Days

Hi stampers!  I keep forgetting to let you know that bonus days have started!  I've been on a sort of vacation (a covid friendly vacay lol) so I am being a bad demo ;-)

Anyway, until August 3rd, for every $50 you spend, you get a coupon code for $5 off any order from August 4th-31st!  Don't lose the email if you order!  And feel free to reach out if you need any help!

You'll also be able to use them for your Holiday Catalog purchases as it starts the 4th as well!  I have sent everyone who's ordered from me in the last 12 months!  And, if you need one, please let me know!

Happy stamping!

Fab Friday 193

Hi stampers!  Happy Friday!  We have been enjoying some family time before the holiday weekend so this will be a quick post!  It's time for a new sketch over at Fab Friday!

And here's what I did with the Pattern Play Suite, it's so cute!

I chose not to use the dies as to show you, you can totally use the stamp set and DSP alone to make cute cards if the whole bundle with the alphabet dies is out of reach for you!

Make sure to play along, we'd love to see what you do!

Happy stamping!

Fab Friday 192

Hi stampers!  Happy Friday!  We have a new color challenge for you this week at Fab Friday and I think you'll like it!  Have you met the new in colors?  Well here they are!

I really like them!  I think my favorite is Just Jade.  For my card, I copied one of the cards on the front of the catalog that I'm totally obsessed with.  I already cased it exactly and if you follow me on Instagram you may have seen it already.  But, I thought it would look really cute with these colors and it does!

I did totally forget to put some sequins or an embellishment on it, whoop!   But still cute!

Make sure to check out what the rest of the team did and please play along with us and get acquainted with the new colors!  Use all of them or just some, doesn't matter!

Happy stamping!

Peaceful Moments Catalog Case

Hi stampers!  I've got  card today straight from the catalog.  The bundles are located in the back and have a sample listed with them, which I love!  I don't have my new products yet so I've been working with current items that I have.

I used the bundle and Peaceful Moments for the sentiment.  My flower, buds, and lighter color leaves were all watercolored then cut out.  My card base is Purple Posy.

This was a fun card and I love the color combos!

Happy stamping!

Fab Friday 191

Hi stampers!  Time is getting away from me!  I meant to post yesterday, start off the new catalog strong, and I forgot lol!  I have been busy cleaning out old things though to make money for the new ;-)

Anyway, I'm here today with a new challenge from Fab Friday!

And here's my card:

I used the A Little Lace stamp and die to make a simple card.  I really like how it turned out though.  And I really like the gold accents!  I'm short on current embellishments right now and these were perfect!  I didn't get all the little pieces out of my background panel and I kind of like how it looks like that.

Hope you're enjoying browsing the new catalog!  Play along with us!

Happy stamping!

Fab Friday 189

Hi stampers!  It seems I'm failing at blogging! Probably because all I do now that we are at home is cook, do dishes, and clean up after all of us being here ALL THE TIME!  Anyone relate?  And the fact that Ian can't leave me alone for five whole minutes ;-)

I have been spending time (especially on the weekends) in my office just watching TV to be "alone" and laying on the floor or the last 8 weeks or so.  I started looking into something to relax in like a chair or chaise lounge but for the time being, it occurred to me that Ian's old rocker and ottoman was upstairs.  We managed to lug it downstairs and while I don't love the way it looks and have a chair in mind to order, it works for now!  I'm sort of afraid I'll never stamp again, ha!  But again, my plan has backfired as someone else finds it cozy.  Mom life right there....

Anyway, I did manage to stamp a card for Fab Friday!  And then I promptly sat in my relaxing spot again ;-)

And here's my card!  The Peaceful Poppies DSP makes quick and easy cards, it's really almost all you need!

I hope you'll play along with us!

Hi stampers!  Happy Friday!  I hope everyone is hanging in there!  I haven't been blogging but we are  doing ok here!  As ok as we can be in this weird, weird time!  At least we can count on a new challenge from Fab Friday!

Turns out, I love these colors together!

I thought they made great poppies!  I watercolored the flower and then put the die cut outs over.

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

Stay safe and happy stamping!

Hi stampers!  Happy Friday!  It IS Friday, right???  Time has lost all meaning during this strange, strange time ;-)  Anyway it's time for a new challenge over at Fab Friday!  We have a sketch this week, check it out:

And here's what I did.

It's sunshine on a card basically.  I sponged the background with our Decorative Masks and colored my cake with Stampin' Blends.  Colors are Mango Melody, Calypso Coral, and Teracotta Tile.

I hope you'll play along with us!  Make sure to check out what the rest of the team did, too!
