Happy Birthday

Hello and welcome to Studio 5380.
Happy Friday to you!

I'm starting off this weekend with a sweet card I created for the Outstanding Occasions" challenge going on over at the Lawn Fawnatics Blog:
 

I used several Lawn Fawn products to create my card:
* Fab Flowers Stamp Set
* How You Bean Stamp Set
* Scalloped Rectangle Stackables Die Set
* Polka, Mon Amie Paper Pack
* Perfectly Plaid Paper Pack

 

I stamped the jar image onto vellum to give the look of glass.  After stamping my flowers, I gave them all a bit of sparkle with a clear Wink of Stella Glitter Marker.


An extra stamped rose dresses up the inside of my card.


I finished up my card with a simple white twine bow and a few clear sequins.

And now I'm off to link up my card.  I hope you have a wonderful weekend - see you soon!

Happy Easter

Hello everyone!
Welcome to Studio 5380 and thanks for stopping by.

I have a sweet Easter card to share with you today:


These cute images are from the "Cottontail Cuties" stamp set by Neat and Tangled.  I colored all the images with Copic Markers and added some Clear Wink of Stella here and there for a bit of sparkle.


My layout was created with a few dies from My Favorite Things including the Cross Stitch Rectangle Dies and Blueprints 27 Die Set.


And, of course, I had to dress up the inside of my card.


The adorable prints are from the Doodlebug paper pad, "Spring Things".

Thank you again for stopping by today.  I hope you have a wonderful, blessed Easter Sunday!

He Has Made Everything Beautiful...

Hello and welcome to Studio 5380!
 
How's your day going? Mine has been full-speed ahead all day and I'm ready for a break!  So, I thought I would take a minute to share a card with you.  The image was colored during the 30 Day Coloring Challenge and I finally got around to adding a few embellishments and putting everything together to create this sweet card:


The stamp is called "Everything Joyful & Beautiful" and is from Unity Stamp.  The flowers and leaves are colored with Copic Markers and I added some gold Stickles to the flower centers.


I used a stencil and embossing paste to add a bit of texture to my background before inking it up with Distress Ink.  For a little more sparkle I splattered on some Heidi Swapp Gold Ink and added a few gold sequins here and there.

And now it's time to get back to work around here!
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I always enjoy your visits and sweet comments!

You're Earresistible!

Hello and welcome to Studio 5380.
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you are enjoying a nice, relaxing weekend and finding a little time to enjoy something you love.  I have been able to get in a little crafty time yesterday and today so it's been a great weekend as far as I'm concerned ;)

I'm working on a few Easter projects and thought I would play along with the current Lawn Fawnatics Challenge - Interactive Cards:



I used lots of sweet Lawn Fawn products for this set:
*Eggstra Special Easter Stamp Set
* Chirp Chirp Chirp Stamp Set
* Fancy Box Die Set
* Grassy Borders Die Set


To make my card fit the interactive requirement for this challenge, I added an action wobble to the chocolate bunny.  I've never uploaded a video to my blog and my first try turned out a bit blurry.  I really need to work on my video skills but, hopefully this gives you a little peek of the bouncy bunny:

All of my images are colored with Copic Markers.  I used a white gel pen to add dots and squiggles to a few of the eggs.  I also broke out my air gun to add a little color to the banner.


I really love this fun Fancy Box Die and I'm sure I will be using this one over and over.

Okay, that about wraps things up for this post.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and I'll see you soon!

Love & Thanks

Hello and welcome to Studio 5380.
It's a rainy, stormy kind of day here in southeast Alabama.  We've been under thunderstorm and tornado warnings most of the day and it looks like they will extend through the night. I don't like days like this and I'm ready for the sunshine and blue skies to return!
 
I hear the thunder rumbling, so I guess I better get busy with this post in case we lose power! I have a sweet, simple card to share with you today:


I used the "Buildable Bouquet" stamp set by My Favorite Things.  The flowers are colored with Copic Markers and have a bit of Clear Wink of Stella glitter for a little sparkle.


After coloring my images, I splattered some black acrylic paint onto my cardstock.  My sentiment is heat embossed with white embossing powder and a simple twine bow finished things up.

Okay, the rumbling is getting louder and my poor little Lola is all curled up in a shivering little ball!  I'm going to get off my computer and go cuddle with her until this passes.  Have a great day and I'll see you soon!

Happy Birthday Blake!

Hello and happy Saturday to you!
Thanks so much for stopping by Studio 5380 today.

Yesterday was a special day....my grandson, Blake, turned 8 years old!  I'm not sure how that happened exactly - there is no way he should be 8 years old already!  Time is flying by much too quickly to suit me these days and my grands are growing up on me.  But, no matter how old they get, I love to make them a little something for their special day....


This was a lot of fun to make...messy, but fun!  I started with an easel gift box file from the Silhouette Online Store.  I used several colors of Distress Ink on the panels to create an "outer space" look.  Next, I splattered Copic Opaque White Ink all over the panels to create the look of stars.


All of these fun little space images are from the "Space Explorer" stamp set by My Favorite Things.  I colored the images with my Copic Markers and added silver glitter for some sparkle (yes, even boys need a bit of sparkle on their birthday).


The pull out drawer is the perfect size for a gift card.


And...a close up look at this cute little astronaut.

Thanks again for stopping in for a visit today.
Have a wonderful weekend and I'll see you soon!

Have A Smooth Birthday!

Hello and welcome to Studio 5380! 
Thank you so much for stopping by.
 
Okay, if you visit my blog very often you know that I have a huge Lawn Fawn fan. They have the sweetest images and so many fun dies.  If you are a fan, you need to stop by their new Lawn Fawnatics Blog.  It's a new challenge blog with challenges twice a month and a chance to win a $25.00 gift certificate. How great is that?
 
Anyway, I just had to play along with their first challenge, "Happy Birthday"....
 
 
I created my background by stamping several images from the "So Smooth" stamp set and coloring them with my Copic Markers.  Using a circle die, I created a window in my card base so that I could make a fun shaker card.


I filled the shaker window with clear sequins and placed some colorful plaid paper behind the window.


It's hard to see in the photos, but the blender and glass both have so much sparkle. I used my Crystal Clear Spectrum Noir to add the shimmer.

I'm off to link up my card at the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge Blog.
Thanks again for stopping in for a visit...see you soon!

Have Courage and be Kind

Hi there and welcome to Studio 5380.
Thank you for dropping in for a visit.

I have a sweet card to share with you today that I created as part of the 30 Day Coloring Challenge I am playing along with...



 I started with a pre-printed watercolor panel created by Suzy Plantamura (available at Simon Says Stamp).  The flowers and words are colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers.
 

The background is painted with Distress Inks  It's hard to tell in the photo, but I also added some Clear Wink of Stella to the flowers for a bit of sparkle.
 
 
I used a white gel pen to to fill in the small circles around the flowers. A few clear sequins are the only embellishment I felt this card needed.  I layered my finished panel onto some pretty pink gingham paper and called it done!

Thanks again for stopping by today - I always look forward to your visits and kind comments!  Have a great weekend and I hope to see you soon.

Happy Camper

Hi there and happy weekend to you!
Thanks so much for stopping by Studio 5380 today.

I've been trying to play along with the 30 Day Coloring Challenge, but this past week has really been a challenge..in more ways than one :(   I wasn't able to play along every day the way I would have liked, but I did get in enough time to color up some sweet images for this fun card:

  
I think this camper from the Avery Elle stamp set, "Glamper Camper" is just adorable! 
I colored all the images with my Copic Markers and added some shimmer with a Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.


 And, how perfect is that flamingo background paper?!?  It's from the "Fandango" paper stack by Craft Smith.


I inked up the background for my camper with some Distress Inks and made a banner for my card with the Banner Die from Reverse Confetti.

Well, that pretty much wraps it up for me today. I'm hoping to find a little spare time this weekend to get back to the 30 Day Coloring Challenge.  I hope you have a wonderful weekend - see you soon!

enjoy the ride

Hello and welcome to Studio 5380.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! My posts have been very sporadic lately and I'm very thankful that you guys still stop by to check on me and see what I've been up to.
 
I really needed some motivation and some inspiration to get me moving towards my Studio and the fabulous Kathy Racoosin of The Daily Marker  provided just that with her current 30 Day Coloring Challenge.  If you aren't familiar with Kathy and her challenge, be sure to stop by her blog and check out all the details.  It's so much fun to play along and the inspiration is endless.

Today I'm going to share a card I made with my Day 1 and Day 2 coloring efforts:


I used all sorts of adorable Lawn Fawn products for this fun card:

*Perfectly Plaid Rainbow paper pack
*Bicycle Built for You stamp set
*Let's Play stamp set
*Grassy Borders die set
*Road Border die set


All of my images are colored with Copic Markers and most got a hit of glitter from my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Marker.


This card was so much fun to make. Lawn Fawn images always make me happy!

Thanks again for dropping in to visit. I hope to have another card to share with you soon.

Sending You Lots of Love ♥

Hello and happy Friday to you!
Welcome to Studio 5380 and thanks for stopping by.

I am happy to say that after almost two weeks of this terrible cold, I am finally on the road to recovery!  It seems like it has been a long time coming and I want to say thank you to all the sweet comments and kind thoughts sent my way.  You ladies are the best!

So, I decided to take it easy today - no work, no cleaning, just time to do something I wanted to do.  And, you know where that lead me...straight to my neglected Studio.  I checked out a few challenges to get my mojo going and decided to play along with the current Sketch Challenge going on over at My Favorite Things:


I used several products from My Favorite Things to create my card:
* Blueprints 13 Die Set
* Lead The Way Die Set
* Mailbox Die Set
* Love Is In The Mail Stamp Set
* Essential Sentiments Stamp Set
* Blu Raspberry Cardstock 


The printed background paper is from October Afternoon.


I added Stickles in Christmas Red to the hearts for a bit of sparkle.


And, of course, I prettied up the inside of my card.

Okay, I'm off to link up my card and find something else to play with before this day is over.
I hope you have a wonderful, relaxing, enjoyable weekend and I hope to see you soon!
