Christmas, Coffee and Vinyl

Hi there and welcome to Studio 5380!
Wow...I can't believe how long it has been since my last post! I just don't seem to be able to find much crafty time these days. This is the first Christmas in many years that I did make handmade Christmas cards for everyone on my list. Believe it or not, I actually (shudder) purchased (shudder) boxed, mass-produced, generic Christmas cards this year!  I know, right?!  I definitely need to get better organized and work on Christmas cards throughout the new year - can't let that happen again!
I did, however, manage to make a few special Christmas gifts this year.  I had fun creating something cute for the coffee drinkers in my family...
Truer words were never spoken.

Unless, of course, these words are spoken.

I found these great glass canisters at Walmart and vinyled them up for my son and his sweet girlfriend. The sentiments are found in the Silhouette Online Store.  I filled the canisters with personalized coffee cups, all kinds of coffee, chocolates and a Starbucks gift card.

Here's a photo of the coffee cups.

How adorable are these two?!

And, last but not least, here's the one I made for my Mama (sorry about the glare).

 Thanks again for stopping by today.
Have a great weekend and a Happy New Year!

Hello and welcome to Studio 5380.
I hope your week is off to a great start! I got a bit of Christmas shopping done today and still found some time to finish up a card.  The laundry, however, is still in the basket waiting to be folded and put away.  But, it's not going anywhere so I'll get to it eventually...I have Christmas cards to make!'s the card I finished up today:

Products used for this card:
* Believe Stamp Set by Simon Says Stamp
* Christmas Town Stamp Set by Simon Says Stamp
* Stitched Basic Edges Die Set by My Favorite Things
* Blue Prints 21 by My Favorite Things
My background was created with Distress Inks in Mermaid Lagoon and Wilted Violet.  All images are colored with Copic Markers.  I added a bit of shimmer with a Spectrum Noir Sparkle Marker.

I'm going to add my card to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.  The current challenge is Ice and I'm hoping my snowy scene qualifies!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Hot Cocoa Anyone?

Hello and welcome to Studio 5380.
It's been a while since my last post. Life has been crazy busy lately leaving me very little time to work on all the projects that I have floating around in my head!  I made a little time a few days ago to create this coffee/cocoa set for my sweet hairdresser and his equally sweet wife:

The tray and pretty cups are from Hobby Lobby.
The font I used is from the Silhouette Online Store.

I love these fun, oversized cups and the font is super cute.

And, of course, I had to vinyl up the tray as well!

 My bow is looking a bit wonky in this photo!  I placed everything into a cellophane gift bag and tied it up with red and green tulle.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!
Have a wonderful day and I'll see you soon...
