Hi there and welcome to Studio 5380!

It seems like I just posted a project for Friends With Flair over at the Unity Stamps Blog and here it is...Friday...again.  I guess time really does fly when you're having fun!  Anyway, for this week's card I used a sweet stamp from the December 2013 Kit of the Month. I think this sentiment is just lovely...

I stamped my image onto a mat created with the Stitched Rectangle Die set by Lawn Fawn.  Next I colored my image with Copic Markers. After coloring the background with my N1 Copic, I put a tiny bit of Copic Blending Solution onto a towel and dabbed it over the gray background.  I also used a bit on the pink banner - I love the effect this technique gives.

I inked the edges of my mat with gray ink and added a bit of sparkle to the hearts with a Wink of Stella Glitter Marker.  As usual, I did not have ribbon in the right shade so I used my Copic Marker and some white seam binding to create the perfect ribbon for my card.  To top things off, I added these sweet little hearts from Doodlebug.

And, here's the inside....

More mats, more ribbon and a cute little heart die cut with the Bundle Of Stitched Shapes die set by Simon Says Stamp.

That about wraps things up for me today.
Thanks so much for stopping in for a visit! Have a wonderful weekend and I'll be seeing you....

EOS Valentine Treats

Hi there and welcome to Studio 5380!

Have you seen all the super cute projects being created with the EOS (evolution of smooth) lip balms?  I ran across several projects both on Pinterest and on Facebook.  When I noticed a pack of 4 at my local Sam's Club, I had to jump on the EOS bandwagon.....

I also grabbed the fun SVG files created just for the EOS lip balm containers over at the Silhouette Online Store. They had several files available and they are all just cute as can be.

This one was fun to glitter up!

This one felt a little plain so I added a sweet ladybug using a stamp from Lawn Fawn.

I decided to package these up for a few special ladies I know....

This is not the best photo - but you get the idea.
I covered a few yummy Hershey Nuggets in coordinating paper using the Candy Wrap Dies by Jaded Blossom. Everything went into cellophane bags along with some red crinkled paper and I tied them all up with a bit of bright red tulle.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Have a great day and I'll be seeing you soon....

Lawnscaping Challenge #98

Hi there and welcome to Studio 5380!

I really enjoy the fun challenges over at the Lawnscaping Challenges Blog because they usually make me work outside of my comfort zone.  Which is great because it makes me try techniques that are new to me or techniques that I wouldn't try to attempt on my own.

The current challenge is to create a background using your Lawn Fawn stamps. Now, I have to admit that I have so much beautiful paper on hand that if I craft for the rest of my life I will never run out of background paper! So, this is probably one of those techniques that I would never attempt on my own.  I enjoyed the challenge, but it sure took me a while to decide what stamps I wanted to use. There so many fun, tiny little Lawn Fawn stamps to choose from! But, here's what I finally came up with for this challenge.....

I created my background first using a Stitched Rectangle Die to create my mat.  Next, I randomly stamped the cute little bee from the Gnome Sweet Gnome stamp set.  I colored the bees with Copic Markers, adding dotted lines behind each bee with a Copic Multiliner Pen.  

I also used a Copic Marker (BG000) to lightly color the white mat. I was trying to go for a light, airy feeling and kept it loose and open rather than completely covering the mat.

I added some fun Stickles in Frosted Lace to the wings of each bee for a bit of sparkle.  After the glitter was dry, I inked up the sides of my mat, tied a black ribbon around the mat and adhered the mat to my black cardbase.

I created a smaller mat (again using the Stitched Rectangle Dies) and colored it in with my BG000 Copic Marker.  I stamped on the grass using the Gnome Sweet Gnome set and stamped the adorable little Gnome onto another piece of cardstock. I colored him up and paper pieced his hat, fussy cut him out and adhered him to the smaller mat with foam tape. Those tiny little hearts were cut out with a die from the Trim The Tree set. Next, I used more foam tape to add the smaller mat to my card.

And, I always like to add a sweet touch to the inside of my cards....

And I think I'm done!
Now I'm off to link up my card at the Lawnscaping Challenge Blog...

Thanks so much for stopping in for a visit - I really appreciate it!
Have a great day and I'll be seeing you soon....

We've got good chemistry!

Hi there and welcome to Studio 5380!

Happy Friday to's finally here!  I do love Fridays, especially when I get to play along with Friends With Flair over on the Unity Stamps Blog....

For today's card, I used the December 2013 Kit of the Month, "Happy Love Day".
After coloring the images with Copic Markers, I added some Glossy Accents to make them shine like real glass beakers.

I added some pretty red twine and fun enamel dots to finish up the front of this card.
And, of course, I had to pretty up the inside as well....

This was super easy, I just created a mat of red, a smaller one of white and added a strip of my patterned paper along the bottom. I finished it up with this row of hearts created with the "Valentine Dies" set by Jaded Blossom.

You can really see the shine from the Glossy Accents in this photo!

Okay, that wraps things up for me today - I'm off to link up my card over at the Unity Stamps Blog.  I hope you have a wonderful weekend and I'll be seeing you soon...
