Hi there and welcome to Studio 5380.

I hope you had a great Fourth of July weekend! We got a lot of rain here but it did not stop my neighbors from lighting up the sky with a couple hours worth of fireworks. My poor Lola spent most of the fourth shivering under my bed - poor baby.  She's back to her usual, frisky self today, but...the sun is still up and I'm thinking we may have another show tonight.

I spent most of today playing in my Studio.  I'm still playing catch up with all the images I worked on during the 30 Day Color Challenge. It's pretty great to have images all colored up and waiting to be placed on a card!  Today's card is the result of a watercolor panel I created during the challenge. I'm still working on my watercolor skills, but I'm pretty happy with the way this one turned out....

I stamped these fun flowers from the Doodle Buds stamp set by WPlus9 randomly on mat made of watercolor paper. Next, using my TomBow Dual Tip Watercolor Markers, I painted the flowers and background color.

I painted an extra flower, fussy cut it and adhered it to my card with foam tape to add a bit of dimension to my card.
The hello sentiment is die cut from Lawn Fawn's Scripty Words die. I cut out the word four times and adhered them together adding a layer of Black Wink Of Stella glitter.

I added a single flower and a touch of blue watercolor to the inside of my card.

The center of each flower has a bit of Clear Wink of Stella for a touch of sparkle.

That pretty much wraps up today's card!  Thanks so much for stopping in to visit today. Enjoy the rest of the weekend and I'll be seeing you soon....

Treat Yourself

Hi there and welcome to Studio 5380.

It's been awhile...because I had to go four..whole..days with NO internet!  The horror!!
Apparently we had a lightning strike that got some part of our internet connection gizmo that is on the outside of our house (I have no idea what any of that techie stuff is called). So after a desperate call to the cable company we were told that the tech couldn't get to our house until late yesterday afternoon. Pure torture, I'm telling you. Anyway, he worked his magic (bless his heart) and I'm back up and running, although I'm thinking that it may take me a few days to fully recover from the serious withdrawal symptoms I suffered!

So, now that I'm back online it's time to share again!
Let me show you some cute little gift cards I made for my grands...

I started out by using some Distress Inks to watercolor my backgrounds.
The yummy ice cream images are from Lawn Fawn's stamp set Treat Yourself which I colored with my Copic Markers.

I used the Gift Card Die from Jaded Blossom on an insert to hold a gift card to the Dairy Queen.

Each card became a bit more personal with letters created with the Owen's ABCs stamp set from Lawn Fawn

That about does it for me today - thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a wonderful day and I'll be seeing you soon (barring any internet glitches)!

Have a SUPERSIZED day!

Hi there and welcome to Studio 5380.
Thanks for stopping by!

I'm still hanging in there with the 30 Day Color Challenge hosted by the fabulous Kathy Racoosin of The Daily Marker and I can't believe that it will soon be over. Today's card highlights some fun images that I colored a few days ago as part of this challenge......

These cute images and the sentiment are from the Happy Meal stamp set made by Your Next Stamp.
I colored these yummy images with Copic Markers and added some Clear Wink Of Stella Glitter to the soda and on the fries (it looks like salt).

I used a couple of dies from My Favorite Things to create my card:
* Blueprints 13
* Cross-Stitch Rectangles

I added a few enamel dots in one corner and a heart shaped enamel to the soda bottle to finish up this fun card.  And, now I'm hungry!

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today. I always appreciate your visits and sweet comments. Have a wonderful day and I'll see you soon....

Life Is Good!

Hi there and welcome to Studio 5380!
 Thanks so much for stopping by today. I have a fun summery card to share with you....
To create the background for my card I randomly stamped a few flip flops and star fish from the cute Life is Good stamp set by Lawn Fawn. I colored the images with fun, summery colors using my Copic Markers.

After coloring all the flip flops and starfish, I decided my card needed  a "sandy" background. Using my E41 Copic Marker I loosely colored in the background. Next I added a small amount of Copic Colorless Blender to the corner of a paper towel and dabbed it onto the sandy areas.

I also colored the sandcastle and bucket, fussy cut them and popped them up with a bit of foam tape. The sandcastle and starfish got a hit with my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Marker for a bit of sparkle and the sentiment finished up my card.

I will be linking up this fun card with a couple of challenges:

* The Stars and Stripes Challenge at Lawnscaping Challenges

Thanks again for stopping by today - have a great Monday and I'll see you soon....

You're Smokin'

Hi there and welcome to Studio 5380.
I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.  It's so bright and sunny here in southeast Alabama...a beautiful day! I plan on getting outside by the pool with a good book in an hour or so. Time to soak up some sun and relax!

Before heading out to the pool, I've got a cute card to share with you....

I used the fun Let's BBQ stamp set from Lawn Fawn for this one.

The images are colored with Copic Markers and I used a Clear Atyou Spica Glitter Pen to add a little sparkle to the "smoke".

I adhered my images to circles cut with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Circles Dies.
Simple, but kinda cute if I do say so myself ♥

So, that's it for me today - I'm ready to head to the pool.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and I'll see you soon...
