Hello and welcome to Studio 5380.
Thanks so much for stopping by today.

It's time for another 30 Day Coloring Challenge with the fabulous Kathy at The Daily Marker.  I try to play along as much as I can on each challenge.  Some days I make and some days not, but that's okay. This challenge is all about making some "me time" to do a little coloring each day and everyone who participates is so encouraging and inspiring - especially Kathy.  If you're not familiar with this challenge, stop by her blog for all the details.  If you are on Instagram, use the hashtag #thedailymaker30day and you will find so much gorgeous coloring. I could spend hours (and sometimes do) just looking at all the wonderful projects.

Anyway, yesterday was the first day of the challenge and I managed to complete an entire card...

My background was created with Distress Ink and I used the Smile die from My Favorite Things to cut out the sentiment from my card base.  I also cut out the sentiment twice from purple cardstock and layered the letters together.  Then, I glued them back into the die cut area on my card base. I love this look.

The sweet Teddy and bird are from the MFT stamps "Friends Furever" stamp set.  I colored the images with my Copic markers and used some foam tape to pop them up on my card base.

I added a few sequins to finish up this sweet card.

Thanks again for dropping by today.
I always look forward to your visits and sweet comments!

Bugs & Kisses!

Hello and welcome to Studio 5380.
Thanks for stopping by today!
I've been working on a few Valentine's Day cards and treats and I have a cutie to share with you today. I pulled out several Lawn Fawn stamps and dies to put this one together:
Here's a list of the Lawn Fawn products I used for my card:
*Scalloped Rectangle Stackables
*Lacy Borders die set
*How You Bean? stamp set
*How You Bean? Conversation Heart Add-On stamp set
*Bugs and Kisses stamp set

I colored the images with Copic Markers and added a bit of shimmer with a clear Wink of Stella Glitter Marker.

I'm going to link up my card with the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #20 - Fun With Food.  Because we all know Valentine's candy is some of the best around, right?!

Thanks again for visiting!
Have a great day and I'll see you soon.

Thank You

Hello and welcome to Studio 5380.

Thanks for stopping by to see my last post for 2017!  I cannot believe that we are about to usher in another new year! The years seem to go by faster and faster as I get older (and older).
It seems appropriate for my last post of 2017 to be a Thank You card because I have so much to be thankful for in my life....
These cards were quick and easy to put together.
I used the Striped Sentiment Strip Cover Up from My Favorite Things to create the top layer.  I love the pretty colors I created with just a few Distress Inks and the colors really pop against the black card base.

I added a few splatters of  Gansai Tambi White Gold watercolor to my panels.  The Thank You sentiment and heart are cut from dies made by My Favorite Things.

Well, I guess that wraps it up for this year!
Thank you for all the visits and sweet comments over the year and years passed.  I always look forward to and appreciate your kindness.  Have a wonderful New Year and I hope to see you soon!

Laundry Today or Naked Tomorrow!

Hello and welcome to Studio 5380!

Have you recovered from Christmas yet?  I finally have all the decorations down and my house is looking somewhat normal again.  As much as I miss the pretty lights and decorations, it always feels good to get my house back in order.  And, once that job is completed, I feel less guilt about spending a little time in my studio.  So, let me show what I made for my laundry room yesterday....

I came across this pretty tray at Michael's a while back and bought 2 of them.  Wish I had bought more!  I used a cut file from the Silhouette Store to create a stencil then sponged on some chalk paint in black.

I love this sentiment...story of my life!

The jars are from Hobby Lobby.  The sentiment is also from the Silhouette Online Store.  I use vinegar in most of my laundry so I had to have a cute bottle. I can't remember the font I used for the word Vinegar, but I love the way it turned out.

While I still don't love doing laundry, this project makes me smile every time I step into my laundry room :)

Thanks for stopping by today.
See you soon!
