Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo

Hello and welcome to Studio 5380.

Happy Wednesday to you! It's time for another Sketch Challenge over at Paper Play Sketches.  Janis has created yet another beautiful sketch for us to play along with this week.  I really enjoyed using this sketch along with some cute images from Your Next Stamp...
This sweet little Fairy Godmother is from the "Little Darling Fairy Godmother" stamp set created by Your Next Stamp.

I colored the image with Copic Markers and added some sparkle with a Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Marker.  The gold dots on her hat were added with a Metallic Gelly Roll Pen.

I completed the inside of my card with the pumpkin carriage image.  This image is also colored with Copic Markers. I also used a bit of Gold Stickles for some sparkle.

To complete my card, I added a few gold, star shaped sequins to add that "magical touch".

And, that finishes up my card!
I'll leave you with a photo of the current sketch and I hope you will play along with our challenge.  Be sure to stop by the Paper Play Sketches Blog to see what the other Designers have created for your inspiration!  Have a great day and I'll see you soon!

Looks Like You Are Stuck With Me

Hi there and welcome to Studio 5380.

Thanks for stopping in for a visit. Today is kind of  a special day around my house.  This day marks 36 years of wedded chaos bliss for me and the hubby! I'm not sure how 36 years went by in the blink of an eye...but, they did.  I wouldn't trade a single day of those years, not even the not-so-great days (cause let's face 36 years there are bound to be a few not-so-great days).  With each anniversary I grow to love this guy more and more and I look forward to many more years together.

Okay, now that you listened to me get all sappy, let's get on with the anniversary card, shall we?  I'm not great with "guy cards".  They always seem to stump me even when they are for someone in my own family. So, I remembered seeing some cards that were stamped and colored on Kraft paper and they seemed a bit more on the masculine side to me.  And...that's what I went with....

I'm pretty happy with the way this turned out and plan on trying this technique again in the near future.  I had to remind myself to wait a little longer between adding colors to the image. I found that it took the Copic Ink a little longer to settle into the true color it would become on this Kraft paper. Definitely harder to blend and harder to judge your final color.
The images are from the stamp set "Sweet Succulents" by My Favorite Things.

I love the inside sentiment, cause really, that's most days.

And, there you go!
Thanks so much for stopping by on our special day - see ya soon!

Make A Wish

Hi there!
Welcome to Studio 5380 - thanks for stopping in.

I have a sweet card to share with you today. This one was created for Lawnscaping Challenge #128, which is a sketch challenge. I pulled out an old set that I've always loved, but have never used and I love the soft, fairy tale look I ended up with...

The images are from the Lawn Fawn "Critters Ever After" stamp set. Images are colored with Copic Markers and have a bit of clear Wink of Stella Glitter for some sparkle.

I created the pink and white mats using the Lawn Fawn "Scalloped Rectangle Stackables" die set along with the "Stitched Rectangles" die set.

Here's the inside of my card.

For the final touch, I added a few shiny, gold star shaped sequins.

Now, I'm off to link up my card at the Lawnscaping Challenge Blog:

Have a great day and I'll see you soon!

Hello - You're In My Prayers

Hi there and welcome to Studio 5380.
Thanks for dropping in for a visit!

I've got a fun, colorful shaker card to share with you today...

I started by stamping these adorable flowers and leave from the MFT Stamps "Buildable Bouquet" stamp set onto some white cardstock.  I wasn't sure where I was going after that, but after coloring a few of the flowers in bright colors, I knew this would be the perfect background for a shaker card.

The scalloped frame and hello sentiment are also from MFT Stamps.

I finished the inside of my card with another flower and the this beautiful sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp "Prayers" stamp set.

There's a lot of sparkle going on with this card and it's tough to catch it all in a photograph without getting a glare. The sequins are very sparkly in the right light and the hello die cut is covered in clear Wink of Stella glitter which adds to the sparkle.  This is a sweet, happy, sparkly card that I  am hoping will help lift the spirits of a friend going through a difficult time.

As always, thank you so much for stopping by.  Have a great day and I'll be seeing you soon!

Thinking of You

Hi there and welcome to Studio 5380.

While strolling through my Instagram feed a few days ago, I came across the current challenge at The Color Throwdown.  The bright orange and pink combo really caught my eye so I thought I would play along.  I pulled out my Distress Inks in Picked Raspberry and Spiced Marmalade and along with a few other crafty treasures and this is what I came up with...

Products used:
* My Favorite Things - Blueprints 27
* My Favorite Things - Bold Paisley Stencil
* My Favorite Things - Spring Tulips Stamp Set
* My Favorite Things - Upsy-Daisy Die Set
* Lawn Fawn - Stitched Rectangles Die Set
* The Stamps of Life - Felt
* Simon Says Stamp - Sparkling Clear Sequins
* Ranger - White Embossing Powder

After stamping my sentiment onto black cardstock, I heat embossed it with white embossing powder.

And, of course, I had to add a little punch of color to the inside of my card as well.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I always look forward to your visits and kind comments!  I'm off to link up my card at the Color Throwdown Challenge #389.  If I don't see you before the weekend, I hope you have a great one!
