New Hobby...like I need a new hobby!

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

Well, it looks like I have stumbled into a new hobby!  I've been wanting to give furniture painting a try and after my first project, I'm afraid I'm hooked! I started with an old coffee table I purchased at an antique/thrift store that was inexpensive, watched lots of videos, then jumped right in!
 
Here's the "before" photo....
 
 
Sorry for the bad picture - I took this in the store with my cell phone.
 
And, here comes the "after" photos....
 
 
Very simple project, but I'm loving the way it turned out!


I used all "Dixie Belle" products for my table including:

White Lightning (to clean table)
Driftwood
Mason Dixon Gray
Hurricane Gray
Gravel Road


After my paints dried, I waxed the table with Best Dang Wax in Black and sealed everything thing with Gator Hide.



I put together my fall arrangement from items purchased at Kirklands and Michaels. I love the punch of orange against the grays of my table!

Now I want to roam around all the antique/thrift stores in my area searching for my next project. But, I've gotta do the laundry :(

Thanks again for stopping by.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend - see you soon!

Have A Beautiful Day

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

I have a sweet, simple card to share with you today....


My background was made with Distress Inks and the "Leaves" stencil from Simon Says Stamp.


The butterfly and sentiment are from the Simon Says Stamp "Beautiful Day" stamp set.


I colored the butterfly with Copic Markers and added some sparkle with a clear Spectrum Noir Glitter pen.  I also added a few clear sequins as a finishing touch.

Thanks again for stopping by today! ♥

Put Some Zippity in your Doo-Dah Day!

Hello and welcome to Studio 5380!

A few days ago, I was up on the Butterfly Reflections Ink Blog and totally forgot to share my post with you here.  So, here we go....


This coffee cup from Cas-ual Fridays is so much fun to work with and they have some great sentiments sets to go along with this cute coffee cup die.


You can see my post and a list of the supplies used for my card by clicking here.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

You Nailed It!

Hello and welcome to Studio 5380!

I've got a quick (but cute) card to share with you today. This is the first card I've created with "Honey Bee Stamps".  They have some really cute sets and I don't think this will be the last card I make using their adorable images...


These cute nail polish bottles are from the "Shine On" stamp set.


I colored the images with Copic Markers then added some shimmer with a Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Marker.


For finishing touches, I added a few sequins and a bit of Nuvo Glitter Drops in "Golden Sunset".

Thank you so much for dropping by today.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and I hope to see  you soon!

Sending Love Your Way

Hello and welcome to Studio 5380.
I hope your weekend is off to a great start.  My Saturday started off with some of my favorites, coffee, breakfast with my hubby and spending the morning in my studio.....life is good ♥

So, on with my post - I've really been loving the July Stamp of the Month Kit from Unity Stamps. It is full of beautiful images and sweet sentiments.  I created today's card using one of the images and my sentiment is from the Unity Stamp set, "Sending My Love"....


I seem to have gotten away from using patterned paper on my cards lately and forgot how much fun it is to mix and match prints and colors. These papers are from an old paper pad from My Mind's Eye called "Lost & Found".


My image is colored with Copic Markers.


As a finishing touch, I added a few "Sparkling Crystals" from Studio Katia.

That's about it for me today.
Thanks so much for stopping by - I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
