He is Risen!

Hello everyone and welcome to Studio 5380.

I hope your week is going well for you.  It's been a bit busy around my house lately but I did get in a bit of inky time this afternoon.  I pulled out several Distress Ink Pads and my newest stamp set from Simon Says Stamp and created a pretty Easter card....

I used the following Distress Inks for my background:
* Peacock Feathers
* Salty Ocean
* Shabby Shutters
Mowed Lawn

This beautiful sentiment is from the Rejoice Stamp Set by Simon Says Stamp.  After stamping in Versamark Ink, I heat embossed the sentiment with Ranger's Gold Tinsel Embossing Powder.

Using the Simon Says Stamp Faith Die Set, I cut out the crosses from watercolor paper.  I used the following Distress Inks to watercolor the crosses:
* Brushed Corduroy
* Walnut Stain

I used a Copic Marker to die a bit of seam binding for my purple cloth.

The inside of my card was created with more watercoloring.  I used the Faith Die Set to cut the word "Easter" from gold, metallic paper and the sentiment is from the Rejoice Stamp Set.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I'm off to link up my card over at the "Anything Goes" Challenge on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog.  Have a great day and I'll be seeing you soon.....

Somebunny loves you....

Hi there and welcome to Studio 5380.
I hope you are having a great Monday.  Mine started off with a bit of Monday morning house cleaning...blah.  After a bit of scrubbing and moving dust around, I slipped upstairs to my Studio and managed to put together a sweet little card for the current Wednesday Sketch Challenge #220 going on over at the MFT Challenge and Inspiration Blog......

I used the following stamps and dies from My Favorite Things:
* Blueprints 21
* Blueprints 23
* Somebunny 

I colored these sweet images with my Copic Markers and gave the little cloud a bit of shimmer with a Clear Wink Of Stella Glitter Marker.

I added a couple of pearls to her dress and a few enamel dots here and there to finish up my card.

Thank you so much for stopping by today - I always appreciate your visits and sweet comments!  Have a wonderful day and I'll be seeing you soon....

This hop was put together to honor those friendships made through crafting. Like many of you, I have made some wonderful friends through paper crafting, blogging and the social media that revolves around our hobby.  This year's Special Honoree is Ester Rovira of Arcadia de Papel.

We are thrilled to have several sponsors for today's Hop....

For today's hop, I created a little gift set of sweet cards for a special friend....

These fun little cards were created with the following goodies from Lawn Fawn:
*Best Pun Ever  stamp and die set

Here's a closer look at each card in the set:

Each image got a bit of sparkle from a Clear Wink Of Stella Marker.

And, of course, I had to pretty up the inside of my cards with this sweet sentiment from the exclusive Feathered Friends stamp set....

After finishing all the cards I decided to package them up....

My cards and envelopes went into a clear cellophane bag and I used the Tag, You're It die set to create my tag.  I tied everything up with a bit of white baker's twine and my gift set is all done!

The Sky's the Limit!

Hi there and welcome to Studio 5380 - thanks for stopping by!
  I'm playing along with the Distress Addicts Challenge going on over at the Lawnscaping Challenges Blog and I've got a fun card to share with you.  This challenge is all about using Distress Inks, distressed edges, whatever you think of as "distressed"....

So, I pulled out the sweet Lawn Fawn "Blue Skies" stamp set and my brand spanking new "Abandoned Coral" Distress Ink, along with a few other Distress Inks and got busy...

Using some Ranger Watercolor paper I inked up my background using Broken China, Salty Ocean and Peacock Feathers Distressed Inks.  I splattered a few drops of water here and there to give a watercolor look to the inks.

I distressed the edges of my mat and added a bit of machine stitching.
The hot air balloon was watercolored using the following Distress Inks:
Abandoned Coral
Mowed Lawn
Dusty Concord
Mustard Seed
Picked Raspberry

The tiny little hearts are from the Bugs and Kisses die set and they were watercolored with the Abandoned Coral Distress Ink.

That about wraps it up for me today. I hope you can stop by tomorrow for the
Crafty Friendship Blog Hop that I will be participating in along with some wonderfully talented crafty friends I've made. There will be some gorgeous projects and lots of fabulous give-aways, so be sure to stop back in tomorrow!
