Mother of the Groom

Hello and welcome to Studio 5380.
Thanks so much for stopping by today.

It has been a busy, busy time around my house lately!  And, I am so very happy to say that my son is  now a married man! The wedding was last Saturday and was absolutely beautiful. We could not be more happy for Brooke and Matthew as they begin their new life together!

My bouquet was looking a little droopy by the time I took this photo!

I don't have wedding photos to share just yet, but thought I would share a few things I created for the wedding over the last few months....

I was so happy that Brooke asked me to make these for her bridesmaids!  I used several products from My Favorite Things to put these together.  About 3 days after mailing these to Brooke, she called me (almost in tears) to tell me that there was a mix-up at the church and the date would have to be changed to April 14th!

Fortunately, I was able to remove the embellishments (oh so gently).  Next, I reprinted the ivory layer with the new date and adhered it on top of the layer with the wrong date. Next, I adhered the embellishments back into place and we were back in business!

This is the assembly line I had going!

My son is a police officer and requested these for his nephews.

I ordered the badges on Etsy and the boys actually worn them during the ceremony.

I also vinyled a few mirrors for the church and the reception.  I was a little nervous to work on something so large, but was so happy with the way they turned out.

It's really hard to get a good picture of a mirror!

I think this one is so sweet!

The scripture mirror is probably my favorite!
I did not do the mirror with "gifts" on it. I think it was written with a gold marker - so pretty.

Thanks for letting me share some sweet memories, I hope to have wedding photos to share with you very soon.

With Love From Owl of Us

Happy Monday to you and thanks for stopping by Studio 5380.

Life is pretty crazy around my house right now as we are down to less than 2 weeks before my son and his beautiful bride-to-be are married. I would like to think that things will settle down after the wedding...but I know better! There is always another project calling my name just around the corner!  In the meantime, I'm going to make cards when I get a chance, post when I get a chance and visit my crafty friends when I get a chance. Those things keep me sane...well, at least not as crazy as I would be without my creative outlet!

So...onto the card I recently finished...

Aren't these little critters adorable?
They are from the My Favorite Things "Wild Woodland" stamp set.

I also used the MFT "Thank You Circle Frame" to create a shaker pocket for my card.

My background was created with Distress Inks and the Cloud Stencil from MFT.  My critters were all colored with Copic Markers.

Thank you again for stopping by today.  I always appreciate your visits and sweet comments. Have a great day and I hope to see you soon!

Happy Birthday, Blake!

Hello and welcome to Studio 5380.
Thank you so much for stopping by today!

It's been a super busy day today.  We had our annual Easter Egg Hunt at church this morning and had a great time with all the kids.  It's so much fun to watch them playing the games and searching for eggs. And, who doesn't love cupcakes at 11:00 on a Saturday morning?

Today is not only a busy day, but it's a very special oldest grandson turns 9 years old today!  I hate that he lives so far away and we don't get to spend time together on birthdays, but I will be seeing him soon.  In the meantime, this card will have to hold us over....

I used the "Team Player" stamp set from Sunny Studios to create my starry card base and trophy.

This was my first time to use the "Gift Card Window and Frame" from My Favorite Things and I absolutely love it! I love that it showcases the gift card on the front and adding sequins made it into a super fun shaker card.

My images were all colored with Copic Markers and got a touch of shimmer with a Spectrum Noir Clear Glitter Pen.

And, here's the birthday boy....

Happy birthday to my favorite 9 year old!
Papa and I love you very much and can't wait to see you!

Thanks again for stopping by today - see you soon.

You Rock!

Hi there and welcome to Studio 5380!

I was running through my Instagram account to see what projects I may have forgotten to share with you and found that I am so behind on my blog posts!  So, I'm hoping to get a few posted over the next couple of day and get caught back up.  We'll see how that works out for me 😉

I made this card for Valentine's Day for my oldest granddaughter, Emma:

This image was a digital download from Power Poppy Stamps.
I don't used digital stamps very often, but I loved the bundle of images that were included with this fun image and I wanted to try something new. I'm pretty happy with the way this one turned out.

I used my long-neglected Zig Watercolor Brush Markers to color this and remembered why I love them so much. I need to pull them out more often because I love the bold, vibrant colors!

And, there you go!
I can check this card off my "not posted yet" list! Hopefully I can get another posted in the next day or two.  Have a great afternoon and I'll see you soon.
